Useful Tips

  • Use fresh water and allow time for the system to heat
  • For an Americano serve over hot water
  • For a longer shot use the lungo button
  • For a cappuccino we recommend using 2 capsules
  • Ensure container is emptied regularly
  • Please follow the safety and operating instructions of your machine manual
  • Descale as required


Setting up your machine

The lungo button on your Nespresso® machine has been preset to 110ml for coffee. For best results, you must reprogramme your lungo button before making your first cup of tea.

To calibrate your Lungo button for tea, press and hold until the desired amount of water has filled the cup or mug. Once calibrated place the tea capsule into the machine and touch the Lungo button once to dispense.

For a tea cup (150-180ml) we recommend using 1 capsule, for a mug (250ml) use 2 capsules (depending on your strength and taste preference).


  1. Rinse the machine and warm cup with first shot of hot water and discard
  2. Choose your flavour
  3. Remove the lid
  4. Lift lever/slide, ensure capsule is fully inserted and close
  5. Press lungo button
  6. Enjoy your tea
