The Krups Nespresso Esssenza Mini convinces with its modern design, simple operation and reduced heating time.

A very attractive design, but compared to the other espresso machines it does not have an automatic stop.

The DeLonghi Inissia is a solid device, which convinces especially with its easy handling.

The Krups Nespresso capsule machine is easy to use but comes with some drawbacks - like a clamping lever.

Test seal: Krups Nespresso XN1101 Nespresso Essenza Mini, Rating good

Due to its small size, the XN1101 Nespresso Essenza Mini by Krups also finds a place in very small kitchens. In comparison with the other coffee machines from the test, the collecting tray looks a lot more unstable; however, this is also the only shortcoming that can be found at first sight on the otherwise generally extremely professional machine. Both the simple cleaning and the easy use speak for the coffee machine. Despite its relatively compact size, it can keep up with the other capsule machines.

2nd place: illy Metodo Ipere SPRESSO Y3 Capsule Machine Caffe

The Ipere SPRESSO Y3 Capsule Machine Caffe is a capsule system from Illy that not only has a large water tank for several cups of espresso but is also easy to operate in all its functions. Unfortunately, it takes quite a long time to heat up, you have to wait about a minute before you can enjoy the coffee.

3rd place: Lavazza A Modo Mio LM500 Minu

The A Modo Mio LM500 Minu by Lavazza is very solidly built and prepares espresso quickly and easily. Unlike Nespresso machines, you need special capsules, but there are no alternative options. The compact design also comes at a certain price, as the water tank with 0.5 litres holds very little liquid and the descaling process is slow and laborious. Furthermore, the machine does not have an automatic stop function, which can be seen as a shortcoming.

4th place: DeLonghi Nespresso Inissia EN 80.B Coffee Machine

The operation of the Nespresso Inissia EN 80.B Coffee Machine by DeLonghi is self-explanatory, the manual is not very helpful and consists only of pictures. Thanks to the close cooperation between the Nespresso brand and the machines, it is easy to find the right capsules. This makes it much easier to use and saves the customer money.

5th place: Krups Nespresso XN 1001 Inissia Nespresso

The similarity of the XN 1001 Inissia Nespresso by Krups to the DeLonghi coffee machine is very high, as both were developed in cooperation with Nespresso. The XN is well made and does what it was created for well. However, with frequent use, it can happen that its lever clamps and the capsules cannot be pierced properly.

Krups Nespresso - XN1101 Nespresso Essenza Mini

Winner: read review
  • There are already compostable capsules on the market to avoid waste
  • Capsules from third-party suppliers are often much cheaper but might not be easily pierced
 

In the run-up to the test, we defined practical requirements and the following test criteria:

  • Handling
  • Speed
  • Volume
  • Processing
  • Cleaning
  • Design

In order to evaluate these criteria, we have defined several tests for the Espresso capsule machines. Several espressos are brewed in these. Before the first run, the commissioning is evaluated and the machines are prepared according to the manufacturer's specifications. In addition, the scope of delivery is checked and the volume of the water tank measured.

When the espresso is brewed, the time and volume required are measured and the handling and user-friendliness are assessed. If other functions or coffee options are available, these are also tested.

Several test persons try and evaluate the finished espresso. Finally, the machines are cleaned and descaled. In addition, the capsules are removed and it is tested whether individual parts of the devices are dishwasher-safe.

In order to rule out errors and to ensure that the devices can withstand the strain of everyday use, each test is carried out in several stages.

The test criteria are given percentages depending on their importance. The final score is then objectively calculated from the test criteria using an algorithm.

Product selection

Our product selection is based on an observation of the current market. In addition to popular branded products, we also include insider tips in our selection. Criteria such as price and range of functions are an important factor for us. The test field is also determined by analysis and evaluation of customer reviews and external tests (e.g. Stiftung Warentest).

The devices are purchased anonymously or lent to us by the manufacturer. Dealers and manufacturers have no influence on the tests and our evaluation.

As soon as new relevant products come onto the market, our test field is extended by these. The new products go through the same test as the already tested devices.

The last time that Stiftung Warentest tested espresso coffee capsule machines was in November 2015. Our colleagues also tested machines from Lavazza, Krups, and DeLonghi, some from the same series as our test machines.

A total of twelve machines were assessed by Stiftung Warentest, three of which were identical in construction. The machines with the Nespresso system are the best. The DeLonghi U EN 110 and Krups XN 250 both took first place. In addition to the test winners, six other machines received good marks. Four products only achieved a satisfactory result, including Lavazza a Modo Mio Magia LM6000. With a smooth 3.0 this one comes in last.

The final score was achieved by the Espresso capsule machines going through six criteria: sensory evaluation (30%), brewing (30%), daily use (25%), power consumption (5%), noise (5%) and odour of the machine (5%).

In the test, the espresso was prepared with tap water at factory settings. It was then evaluated by eight subjects with regard to taste, smell, appearance, mouthfeel, and aftertaste. The best espresso was prepared by Krups Nespresso Inissia XN1005 and DeLonghi Nespresso EN 80. The espresso from the Aldi Süd machine was too weak and aqueous for the test persons. Dolce-Gusto does not produce a satisfying espresso either but lacked a stable crema.

The preparation time for heating up and brewing espresso was also measured. Most machines need an average of 40 to 50 seconds. The Delica Cremesso is by far the fastest: within just 25 seconds it heats up and brews a cup of espresso. The Tchibo capsule machine, on the other hand, takes a good 76 seconds. The temperature of the drinks was also assessed. In order to determine the average temperature, each machine had to prepare ten cups of espresso. The temperature of the first cup was compared with that of the following cups. With ten machines, the beverage was not warm enough. The machines from Aldi Süd and Tchibo, on the other hand, showed good results.

In order to test the suitability for everyday use, the testers evaluated settings such as inserting and removing the capsules, cleaning and descaling. In addition, the devices were subjected to an endurance test in which they had to brew 90 espressos. This simulated a use of one to two months. The handling of espresso capsules worked perfectly with almost all devices. Only the Krups Nespresso Inissia and Cremesso One had a problem: the capsules could not be inserted effortlessly, sometimes more force had to be exerted when the lever was turned and the capsules did not always land properly in the waste chute. In general, the devices performed well at this point. However, the Krups Inissia XN 1005 and DeLonghi EN 80 had so many shortcomings that it was only enough for a satisfactory result.

With regard to power consumption and noise level, the results were good to satisfactory. There were no really big dropouts. The Tchibo device consumes the most power, the Bosch device the loudest. Lavazza's espresso machine, which came last, once again dropped its overall score sharply in the odor test. This is because the product emits a strong chemical odor that does not evaporate even after a while.

Two similar models from the Stiftung Warentest test made it into our practical test. One is the Krups Nespresso XN1001 Inissia. Like Stiftung Warentest with the XN1005 model, we also found problems with the lever. Nevertheless, it ended up in second place with our colleagues. We also rated the Krups machine well, but three other machines were more successful. It's similar with the DeLonghi Inissia EN 80.B Nespresso. The EN 80 model also came in second at Stiftung Warentest. Both the DeLonghi and Krups machines landed on our last place with a score of 2.2.

Espresso capsule machines

The history of the capsule machine

Coffee is part of the morning routine of many people. Meanwhile, there are numerous coffee types and preparation variants for the perfect coffee drink. In Italy and throughout southern Europe it is a very special type of coffee that enjoys great popularity: the espresso!

This coffee variant seduces with its high taste concentration and is considered to be the purest form of the delicious bean. But where does the espresso come from? And how was it prepared before the capsule machine was invented?

In 1884 the first espresso machine was designed by the Italian Angelo Moriondo. In the same year, he was granted a patent for it. His intention was to reduce the brewing time because in the inns of the time coffee enjoyment always meant a long waiting time for the clientele. Many guests did not want to accept this and preferred to do without their coffee.

The first espresso machine consisted of a water kettle, the task of which was to conduct the water through the coffee powder. For this 1.5 bar pressure was built up. No comparison to today's espresso capsule machine, which can build up a pressure of 9 - 15 bar. Nevertheless, the development at that time was the starting signal for the progress of modern coffee enjoyment.

The steam-controlled coffee maker was the basis for the further development of espresso machines. In 1906 Italian Desiderio Pavoni presented an invention called "Caffee Espresso". Today's espresso capsule machine is based on the inventions of that time. Whether steam nozzles, safety valves or strainer carriers - Pavoni revolutionised the world of coffee.

Unfortunately, it was not possible to create an acceptable espresso with the steam operation of the time. The pressure was just 2 bar. Insufficient to make a tasty espresso that tasted neither bitter nor watery and burnt.

50 years after the first espresso machine was presented, the Italian Achille Gaggia set the ball rolling again. In 1938 he presented his version of the espresso machine, which no longer worked with steam but with water. The change was radical and Pavoni's invention was eclipsed.

The function was completely different, a spring-piston generated the pressure as soon as the lever was tightened. This mechanism coined the term "espresso drawing", which is still used today. The pressure produced in this way was between 8 and 10 bar, the best possible pressure ratio when preparing espresso.

If you're thinking about a good espresso, you probably also have the crema in mind. To this day it is considered the most important feature of an excellent espresso. Gaggia not only revolutionized the espresso machine itself, but it also brought the crema tradition to the program.

Cafe-Crema
The secret of a perfect espresso: The crema.

Those who like to enjoy their espresso with milk can prepare it particularly well with a milk frother. In our opinion, milk frothers with induction are best for frothing milk. You can find out which models are the best in our large Milk Frother Test.

But there was still a problem with the preparation of espresso with Gaggia's machine. The pressure fluctuated and depended on the barista. There was a solution in 1961, when the Faema E61, a truly modern machine, was launched on the market. The pressure was no longer generated by leverage, but by means of an electric pump. The quality of the prepared espresso was therefore constant and the main problem of modern espresso preparation was solved.

The further development of the espresso capsule machine

As you can see there has been steady progress and it will continue in the future. The taste of an espresso can be influenced by many facets. The water temperature, which used to fluctuate a lot, plays an important role. However, a constant temperature is the prerequisite for a constant taste experience. Thanks to today's electronic control system, the water temperature can be set precisely.

Another problem in espresso preparation is that the aroma is quickly lost when the pre-ground coffee powder is used. The machines have been designed in such a way that the grinder only starts seconds before the coffee is prepared and grinds the whole bean. This problem is eliminated with a modern espresso capsule machine because the airtight aroma capsules are only opened immediately during preparation.

The capsule machine is an easy-to-use coffee machine for domestic use. Filled capsules are inserted into the machine, which can be selected according to personal taste. There are various types of capsules for different coffee specialties. Each capsule machine has its own brewing process so that only the matching capsules are suitable to prepare a really tasty coffee.

The Espresso capsule machine has a water tank that is freshly refilled before use. The water in the tank is heated to 90 degrees and then forced through the capsule at around 10 bars. Some espresso capsule machines have a foam chamber so that the espresso is refined with a delicious crema.

The construction of an espresso capsule machine is simple, but there are differences from model to model. Depending on the finances available and your demand for quality, you should consider the following points:

Type and size of the water tank

Different capsule automats differ in the size of their water tanks. The disadvantage of a small water tank is that you often have to refill it with fresh water. On the other hand, these appliances are space-saving and can also be stored in a smaller kitchen.

Make sure that you can remove and clean the tank of your espresso capsule machine. This way you can remove limescale better and you also have the possibility to fill the tank directly under the tap.

Power consumption and performance

Espresso capsule machine
When purchasing, pay attention to the power consumption of the machine, as well as to useful accessories that meet your wishes. Here: Capsule machine from Illy

Before you decide on an espresso capsule machine, you should check the power consumption. If you choose a powerful machine, the wattage is often between 1500 and 1800. The water heats up faster and the pressure during operation is higher. However, as the output increases, so does the power consumption. Nevertheless, high-performance machines are usually more durable and bring you the optimum coffee experience into your home.

Follow-up costs for the capsules

When you decide on an espresso capsule machine, you should think about how often you drink coffee beforehand. You will need one capsule per drink. Depending on the manufacturer of the capsule machine, the capsule system is sealed off and you cannot insert any alternative products. In the meantime, however, there are adapters available for purchase that enable the operation of foreign capsules on some machines.

You should find out in advance which supplier sells your preferred type of capsule. It is also important to find out which drinks you can prepare with your favorite device.

Accessories

When purchasing an espresso capsule machine, you should find out if there is an integrated milk frother. This gives you the opportunity to prepare other coffee specialties in addition to your espresso, such as a cappuccino. Many capsule machines already have such a milk frother integrated and simplify the preparation process. If you can do without an already integrated milk frother, there is, of course, the possibility to use a manual milk frother.

Which drinks can be prepared?

When buying an espresso capsule machine, the decisive question is which other beverages can be prepared. Most machines are not designed exclusively for the preparation of espresso. The variety of beverages depends on the supplier of the capsules. The standards include cocoa, cappuccino, latte macchiato, and regular coffee. In some capsule machines, however, tea specialties and all sorts of coffee with special flavours can also be produced.

Range of application for the espresso capsule machine

If you decide on a capsule machine, it is important to consider in advance for which application the device is intended. Would you like to prepare coffee drinks for private use in your home environment, or is commercial use planned? As a rule, home appliances are not suitable for industrial use and are not approved.

Most home appliances can prepare one or a maximum of two portions of coffee at the same time. This quantity is clearly too small for gastronomy. Fully automatic coffee machines or professional coffee machines are better suited for this purpose.

A milk frother as a useful addition

If you want to enjoy your espresso properly, you can complement it with delicious milk foam. In our opinion, milk frothers with induction are best for frothing milk. You can find out which models are the best in our Milk Frother Test.

It does not only matter what the capsule machine can do, but also what it looks like. Here you will find numerous variations: from peppy and colourful to elegant black. Which capsule machine suits you best depends on your style at home. Think in advance about where the machine will be displayed and how well it will fit in.

It's not just a question of looks, it's also a question of size. There are capsule machines in different sizes. Small, compact machines are no bigger than a standard toaster and will fit on most sideboards. Large appliances, on the other hand, require more space and do not fit in every kitchen.

Modern design, abstract design, colourful design - the variety of the modern capsule machine is almost unlimited.

Operation of the Espresso capsule machine

If you have previously brewed your coffee by hand or made it with a screen printing machine, the use of a capsule machine is a change. Not everyone is technically versed and understands the functionality without instructions. Therefore it is important to make sure that the functionality of the machine is well described and easy to understand. A complicated, tedious operation makes coffee preparation difficult and quickly spoils the enjoyment of the new capsule machine.

Price differences

The cost of buying an espresso capsule machine should not be neglected. There are cheap machines available for 30 Euro, but this is only the machine, without any accessories. With more expensive machines you often already get a selection of coffee capsules, so that you do not have any further costs at first.

But not only the costs of the capsule machine are decisive, but also the resulting follow-up costs. Capsules are always needed for the use, it makes sense to look here first after the prices.

More and more discounter and favorable offerers bring coffee caps on the market, which are not compatible however with all machines. For some models, there are adapters to buy, which make the machine free for all other capsules. It is worth researching in advance how expensive the operation of your espresso capsule machine will be and which capsules you can use.
