Nespresso machines have become a trendy way for coffee enthusiasts to get their daily fix of delicious, steam brewed cappuccinos and espressos. But many accessories will further enhance your experience. In this article, we take a look at the best Nespresso accessories.
Your experience of your daily cup (or cups) of coffee can be enhanced by various accessories such as milk frothers, pod dispensers, travel mugs, recycling canisters and reusable pods. Creating the perfect cup with your Nespresso machine every day becomes far easier with these accessories.
By the time you’ve finally got your hands on a sleek, brand new Nespresso machine, you’re never going to want to turn back.
However, after using it for a while, you will notice that there are small nuances to the experience that can be enhanced by buying some accessories that will fulfill specific functions, making the process of brewing and drinking your coffee more streamlined.
Top 5 Nespresso Accessories
Nespresso machines have become one of the most popular coffee makers on the market, and it’s clear why. They are essay-to-use, make great cups of coffee akin to what you may be getting from professional baristas, and they are relatively affordable.
So, you could argue that owning a Nespresso machine and making your daily cup(s) is all about the experience. But it also holds true that your experience has the potential to be even better if you invest in some of the many accessories available. We take a look at five of our favorites:
Nespresso’s Aeroccino milk frother helps you create the perfect cappuccino by frothing your milk to perfection in about one minute. Most people may be happy drinking espresso with a bit of crema to get that smooth, delicious, premium coffee taste.
But, for those of us that want to add a little bit of variety to our experience and make our own artisan cappuccinos, the Aerocinno milk frother can take your experience to a whole new level.
The Aeroccinno can make both hot and cold milk froth at the press of a button. It can also simply warm up your milk if you don’t like milk froth and has a capacity of 120ml (4oz) for milk froth and 240ml (8oz) for preparing hot milk.
One of the great things about owning a Nespresso machine is the wide variety of pods that you have to choose from. One of the worst things is searching through your stash of pods in various strengths and flavors to find the pod that you want today!
And, if you’re the type of person that can’t stand going through your boxes and boxes of different parts, you’re going to want to find a dispenser that not only helps keep your pods organized but actually looks good and fits in with your Nespresso machine’s sleek design.
There are countless pod dispensers out there with varying designs, but I believe that the EVERIE Crystal Tempered Glass Top Organizer Drawer Holder is one of the best due to its large capacity, neat finish, and simple design, which allows you to quickly find the exact pod that you’re looking for in seconds.
So you have this beautiful Nespresso machine that makes you delicious cups of coffee with minimal effort. But perhaps you spend a lot of time commuting and are desperately looking for a great cup of coffee to drink on the go. Don’t worry; this is where Nespresso’s Touch Travel Mug will come in handy!
Now you can enjoy your Nespresso coffee away from home, thanks to this 345ml stainless steel coffee mug with a plastic seal that allows you to take it anywhere.
The sleek, functional, urban design keeps your coffee hot and helps you avoid messy spills, and can carry just enough coffee to keep you satisfied until you get back home or to the office.
Another problem for Nespresso machine owners that often comes up is the matter of what to do with your used pods. Did you know that if you order your Nespresso pods online, there’s an option for the couriers to pick up your old pods for recycling purposes?
Now, you could opt to store your used pods in a Nespresso recycling bag. Still, they aren’t very easy to use, fill up very quickly, and just don’t look good next to your beautifully designed Nespresso machine and your other beautiful accessories.
On the other hand, Nespresso’s Recycling Canister is beautiful, easy to use, and designed for practicality and to look good, alongside the other sleekly designed appliances on your kitchen counter.
It can store up to 160 used Nespresso pods, has a handle that makes it easy to carry around, and has a lid designed to make dispensing of used pods effortless, saving you time and making the experience of being responsible about your consumption just that little bit easier.
Anyone that owns a Nespresso machine will tell you that the most significant expense, by far, is what you’re spending on the pods themselves. You are spending roughly $1 every time you make a cup, and if you have several cups a day, that adds up pretty quickly.
So, instead of spending all of your money on single-use Nespresso pods, rather opt for a set of reusable pods like the Refillable Coffee Capsules Cup Stainless Steel Nespresso Pods.
These pods are compatible with most Nespresso machines (make sure it is compatible with yours) and are held together by lids that allow your Nespresso machine to create pressure in the pod during the brewing process and open the lid afterward and refill it with your homemade blend after each use.
This means that:
- Each cup of coffee you drink will be less expensive and
- It’s environmentally friendly.
Take note of the fact that it makes the coffee brewing process a bit more of an effort. But, for the sake of our planet (and your wallet), it’s a small sacrifice to make.
While we can’t fit every Nespresso accessory available on the market today (there are a lot), a few didn’t make our list of the top five accessories but that you should still consider investing in.
For example, there are plenty of coffee cups and mug sets out there designed specifically for Nespresso drinkers that you’d need to get your hands on before you make your first cup.
Nespresso has also released a range of spoons that you may want to invest in if you’re not satisfied with what you already have. In addition to this, they have also released a creatista milk jug that could enhance your experience when making a cappuccino.
Finally, you are definitely going to want to look into Nespresso’s line of descaling kits, which are essential for maintaining the performance and lifespan of your wonderful Nespresso machine. After all, these nifty devices aren’t impervious to getting dirty and need to be regularly maintained.
So, now that you’re the proud owner of a Nespresso machine, you are ready to explore the limits of what constitutes the perfect coffee experience. And if you can get your hands on some of these fantastic Nespresso accessories, you can take that experience to the next level!
