Nespresso has developed a unique extraction system specially adapted to capsules. It controls every vital setting when preparing a perfect espresso. Nespresso machines have been designed with renowned partners and designers, and bring out the taste and aromas of coffee by combining quality of design with ease of use. The Nespresso C101 Essenza Automatic Machine is part of our compact line, which features a modern, compact, and practical design. The machine deploys technology essential for preparing an outstanding espresso, and is exceptionally easy to use. Automatically control the amount of coffee in the cup. The high pressure pump extracts all the aromas and develops a smooth crema. The thermobloc heats water to between 187 degrees and 196 degrees during extraction and empties the remaining water after each use so that the water is fresh for each preparation. It uses a simple system which perforates the capsule and soaks all the ground coffee to optimally filter the coffee. The functional handle system allows for easy coffee preparation. Automatic ejection of used capsule makes cleanup a snap. The water container is removable for easy filling.
