Small and colourful, the Krups Nespresso Inissia

It’s strange to think that today in the world of coffeemakers, most of them are praised for their ability to make something other than coffee …

For me, the quality of a coffeemaker is in its coffee. That’s why from the start I only wanted one range: a Nespresso coffee machine !

I chose the Krups Nespresso Inissia (exact reference nespresso krups yy1530fd inissia) because it is small (neither too high nor too wide) and is available in several colours. I ordered it green.

Description of Nespresso krups inissia

When we compare it with la Nespresso U, we have a machine that’s just as thin and slightly shorter and lower. However, it has a pressure of 19 bars to make a really good coffee.

The tank has a capacity of 0.7 litres. It is transparent, as there is no signal that it is empty. So you should think about this before you start a cup of coffee. If you want a larger tank, turn to Nespresso Citiz instead.

The grating where we put the cup tray can be fold, which allows to serve in a mug or with a mug of 9 cm maximum. The two volumes are 40 ml for a short coffee and 110 ml for a long coffee.

Like all nespresso machines, the Inissia machine is equipped with a tray where used capsules can be dropped. It can hold up to about ten capsules.

An easy-to-use machine

If you’ve ever used a nespresso machine, the functioning of Inissia Nespresso won’t surprise you.

First we fill the tank and install the cup. Then we lift the arm and slide the cap slightly sideways (yes it’s weird, but otherwise it’s blocking). Then you just have to lower the arm.

The machine has two buttons. Press one of them to start preheating. When the buttons have stopped flashing, you can start extracting coffee. The left button starts a short coffee, the right button starts a long coffee. It is also possible to interrupt the extraction before the end by pressing the button again.

All that’s left to do is lift and lower the arm to drop the capsule into the internal bin.

The operation is very quick. The preheating lasts 25 seconds. Short coffee is prepared in 15 seconds and long coffee in 20 seconds. So it takes less than a minute to get your coffee.

Maintenance is unfortunately less easy. It cannot be done without the instructions in hand, whether for descaling or emptying (recommended before going on holiday, for example).

The price of Nespresso Inissia

Currently, depending on the colour, the Inissia coffeemaker costs between €60 and €90. It is available in white, green or blue. If white is discreet, the other colours are really meant to be conspicuous.

After comparison of Nespresso coffeemakers, it’s a fair price. It is even rather similar to coffee makers of other brands.

On the other hand, the price of the capsules must be taken into account. Nespresso capsules are only available on the internet. They offer only coffee, currently 22 Grands Crus. On average, you have to count 0,35 € per capsule. They are therefore more expensive than most other capsules. It’s up to you how you like your coffee.

Please note that with the machine, we receive a box of 16 capsules. This allows you to discover the different coffees on offer and to know which one to order.

Nespresso Inissia review

For lovers of full-bodied coffees, the Nespresso Inissia coffeemaker is an excellent choice. The pressure is very important for optimal extraction.

I have no problem with the daily use. The tank is amply sufficient, the preparation is fast. You can easily prepare two or three cups of coffee without the first one getting cold while waiting for the others.

Another good point is that the machine is easy to switch off completely by pressing both buttons at the same time. If not, it goes on standby after 9 minutes of inactivity.

Small daily disappointment with the noise level. The machine vibrates a lot. It emits 68 dB, which is similar to what a vacuum cleaner can do.
As I said earlier, the interview is also delicate. Nespresso has put several videos online to simplify descaling. But even so, it is unpleasant to do.

Finally, sometimes there are leaks in the beak. They are small, but it is preferable to leave the cup holder down to avoid having them everywhere.

The plusses:

  • cute and colorful
  • 19 bar pressure
  • mug of 9 cm max
  • super simple to use
  • super-fast

Les moins :

  • complex scaling
  • noisy


The Krups Nespresso Inissia electric coffee maker is a perfect machine for coffee lovers who are also limited by the size of their kitchen or office. It’s small and fits easily anywhere. Smart, it’s fast, easy to clean and with a pressure that exceeds many coffee makers.

Finally, it offers a very interesting quality-price ratio for a Nespresso brand coffee maker.
