How To Reset Nespresso Machine To Factory Setting?

One significant benefit of Nespresso machines is that most allow you to determine the size of your espresso shots. So, once you’ve set your desired brew volume for different coffee pods, the machine will stop when it reaches that point.

However, if you want to change the setting, use a new type of capsule, or otherwise experiment until you find a coffee best suited to your preferences, you’ll need to reset your machine.

Resetting your Nespresso machine might seem a little daunting. After all, it doesn’t sound as though it should be easy, and the prospect of starting over seems complex. However, it’s actually very straightforward.

OK, so you’re ready to restore your Nespresso to the factory settings that were its default when you bought it. But what if you don’t have the manual? Don’t worry – this guide covers step-by-step instructions for resetting most Nespresso machines.

So, whether you have a Nespresso OriginalLine machine or VertuoLine machine and want to reset it, there’s an excellent chance you’ll find all the information you need in this article. Let’s get into the finer details.
