How To Use Your Coffee Machine

How To Use Your Coffee Machine

Need a snazzy guide on how to use the one (and only) thing that makes you your coffee? We’ve got you.

Coffee machines. Nespresso® coffee machines, to be exact. If you’ve got one, then chances are, you’ve probably had some questions here and there about ‘em. Well, stress less, Brew Crew! We’ve got a handy guide with all the go-to’s on what to do to make your brew.


To start us off, we’re gonna hit ya with some easy-as refresher tips:

  • Fill your water at least halfway (an old, but a goodie).
  • Get yo’ self a cup that fits under the mug. We haven’t got time for spillage around here!
  • Clear your pod after each use. Pull the lever to clear your pod. This ensures any built-up water also clears through your machine.
  • Dispose of your pods in the capsule container as often as you can. Ideally, right after you’ve made a cuppa. This helps you avoid built-up pods and getting your pod stuck in the capsule container.


Tell built-up funk to gunk off! If you’re anything like us, you drink a lot of coffee. If you drink a lot of coffee, you’ll want to descale your machine often. If you have no idea what we’re talking about, and you need a quick guide, we’ve also got a blog on descaling your machine and why you should use a descaler (check that out HERE). We also sell our very own descaler, too! When you’re ordering your coffee from us, check out our descaler under the ‘Treats’ section.


This honestly is the biggest question that gets asked in the Googles! How do I reset my Nespresso® coffee machine, or just simply How do I reset my coffee machine? Now, your lil’ brew maker doesn’t need to be a super complicated piece of technology, so we’ve also whipped up a snazzy blog on this, which you can check out HERE.


If you need to get up to speed on how to ensure your machine scrubs up well, we have a pretty nifty guide that breaks that all down HERE. Knowing how to clean your Nespresso® coffee machine is important stuff, folks! Ensuring that you clean your machine often, descale it regularly and keep on top of the tricks we recommend are honestly the best practices we know of to ensure the investment you’ve made in your coffee machine lasts as long as possible.

We know this seems super simple, Brew Crew, and like a lot of work – but it honestly isn’t. It just seems like it is. Give it a go and trust us. You’ll also thank us later when you’re still sipping on delicious coffee years into the future and makin’ coffee from a machine that runs like it was purchased last week. BOOM.
