Step-by-Step Guide to Resetting the Nespresso Machine
Now that you know the situations in which a Nespresso machine reset is useful, let’s go through the process itself.
It takes less than two minutes.
Step 1: Power Off the Machine
Start with your Nespresso machine powered off.
Step 2: Begin Factory Reset
Hold down the brew button and the lever simultaneously for three seconds to initiate a factory reset.
Step 3: Enter Menu Mode
A steady orange light will turn on, indicating that you have entered the menu mode.
Step 4: Press the Lever to Reset
Press the lever down three times. This action is for resetting the machine.
Step 5: Confirm Reset with Brew Button
Press the brew button once to confirm the reset.
Step 6: Watch for Indicator Lights
An orange indicator light will blink three times, followed by a steady green light. This green light indicates that your machine has been successfully reset and is ready to brew.
Customizing the Volume of Your Coffee
I’ve received many messages asking if the Nespresso Vertuo Plus coffee machine can be set up to make a customized cup of coffee. Yes, it can, and it’s quite simple.
Let’s dive in:
Step 1: Select Your Capsule
First up, pick the exact type of coffee capsule you want to customize. It’s neat that the Nespresso Vertuo Plus allows individual settings for each capsule type.
Step 2: Load the Capsule
Pop your chosen capsule into the machine and make sure it’s securely locked in place. Ready for the customization magic?
Step 3: Start Brewing
Hit the start button to kick off the brewing process. Now, stay sharp and watch the coffee flow.
As soon as it hits the volume you fancy, hit the start button again. This smart move programs the machine to remember your preferred volume for that capsule.
A quick tip: Precision is key here. If you miss your mark and press the button too early or late, you’ll need to redo the whole process.
Step 4: Enjoy Consistency
Once you nail this, your Nespresso Vertuo Plus is all set. It will remember and replicate your perfect coffee volume every time you use that type of capsule.
If you wish to readjust the size of the prepared cup, you must perform a factory reset. Please follow the instructions provided above.
Remember, a factory reset can be done anytime during your Nespresso Vertuo Plus machine’s lifespan. It’s particularly recommended if you notice the temperature of your coffee or espresso isn’t quite right.
Don’t forget that customizing the volume of your coffee is always an option, giving you control over how much your machine dispenses.
