Why Choose the Inissia?

This works perfectly if you don’t want the messy hassle of trying to operate a full espresso machine at home.
The Inissia is also perfect for small apartments or for families where only one person drinks coffee. Its small footprint doesn’t take up much space on the counter or in a cabinet, so it won’t be in the way of preparing dinner.
Even though the Inissia is small, its 19 bars of pressure extract delicious shots with fabulous crema atop for a smooth sip any time of the day. It truly brings the coffee shop experience without any of the fuss.
Custom Coffee Capsules
One of the best features of using a coffee maker in the Nespresso family is the variety of coffee choices available. The Inissia uses Nespresso capsules to provide drinkers with exceptional choices and a delicious brew every time. Select from more than 25 different pods, four of which produce actual espresso.
Nespresso owners get a spot in the Nespresso Club, which is a customer service module available via app or phone for 24/7 coffee support.

Club specialists help you with specific questions and concerns related to your Nespresso machine and coffee questions in general. It’s like having your own personal coffee expert on call at any time.
What the Inissia Is Lacking
Though there are many bright spots in the Inissia’s design and performance, it does have some pretty obvious shortcomings that might make it undesirable for certain customers.
For starters, the Inissia’s small size might be a deal breaker to more serious coffee aficionados. While the small footprint is ideal for some settings, families that drink a lot of coffee may find that it doesn’t live up to the rigor of multiple daily brews on every day of the week.
Serious coffee enthusiasts will be disappointed in the lack of options to control the espresso pull. Enthusiasts may find the process lacks customization. Though the average drinker probably wouldn’t notice this potential shortcoming, it can be a shortcoming for the avid coffee drinker.
Additionally, there isn’t a milk frothing option native to the Inissia. This definitely detracts from the coffee-shop feel of espresso beverages. There are many coffee drinkers who would prefer a machine that can froth milk alongside its perfectly pulled shots.
While there is a milk frothing option from Nespresso, the Aeroccino, it is sold separately and for an additional cost. However, because the Inissia is a lower-tier espresso machine, you may find some money left over in the budget for splurging on a milk frother. The Nespresso Aeroccino comes in three options—Aeroccino3, Aeroccino4 and Aeroccino Plus.
The Inissia also offers combo that includes Aeroccino Plus milk frother unit.
The Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker is a top-performing small espresso machine. It has powerful functions, despite its small size, and delivers exceptional cups of coffee. In terms of convenience, even the busiest users in the tiniest dwellings get great uses out of this espresso machine.
Whether you live in a dorm or want a small espresso machine to store in the recreational vehicle, the Inissia is a great companion for your travel needs. It’s lightweight and easily portable. It can store in a small cabinet or even a box if you’re super tight on space.
With plenty of coffee choices from Nespresso capsules and support from the Nespresso Club, the Inissia can deliver awesome coffee. Take this with you wherever and whenever you want it.
