The discussion about coffee is an age-old one. From conversations that revolve around whether black coffee is better for us or white coffee is healthier? How much to add to your percolator and which country has the best one. The list is endless and one can talk about these all day long.
With work from home the latest trends for the past 2 years, you just miss your favorite Starbucks Coffee that is near to your office. The good news is you can be like me, just getting a Nespresso machine and making great coffee for yourself at the comfort of your home.
Getting up and first thing in the morning, all you want is a decent cuppa jo to start your day, and even better, a quiet cuppa jo is even better for those mornings where the night before was a little bit more fun than you had imagined. And not miss out on that wake-up call to get that kick of caffeine into your system and creative ideas flowing into your mind
But even a great morning can be disturbed by a noisy and grumpy Nespresso machine. That happens to be my old model and it makes me so disturbed and frustrated that I tested and researched 17 models and put together this list of 6 quietest Nespresso machines so you can avoid my mistake.
A lot of brands have come up with various ways of making coffee and with it, various Quietest Nespresso machines to accompany this idea. There’s one quiet Nespresso machine, in particular, that can do more than just provide a quiet cuppa and it even replace the need for any coffee maker in my kitchen because of one extra feature that most Nespresso machines do not have. What is that feature? I’ll show you in my #1 review below.

Quiet Nespresso Machines: Buying Guide
Well, that was the list, did you find something you like? With these lists, usually, you either know what you want from the start, or you are clueless. If you’ve been able to find a product you like, congratulations, may it serve you well. Stick around if you need more help, a buying guide follows.
Heat Up Time
Coffee takes time. And the thing about time is that no one has enough of it. This is especially true for Espresso, not only that you drink it fast, you make it fast. So, time is obviously one of the most important factors here. The machines in this list will heat up the water in less than 30 seconds.
The 30 seconds mark is something you should aim for even if you’re buying the machine from somewhere else. Some models do way better than 3o though. I know that sometimes you just want to drink the coffee and skip the whole making part. If that’s usually the case for you, consider the models with 15-20 seconds heat up time.
Coffee shop owners and managers can talk a lot about how much time it takes for a new employee to learn to use a Nespresso machine. I don’t know why but manufacturers tend to make coffee machines really complicated. I’m not saying that you’ll never be able to make coffee on your own, it’s just that it may take you some time before getting the hang of it.
If you want to skip this stressful part, pick something with easy, One-Touch controls. Most of the items on the list are quite easy to use. Most importantly, all products come with clear instructions. Not only instructions for using the machines but coffee recipes are included too.
Now, the part no one likes, cleaning the machine. It shouldn’t be a problem but most customers forget that the machine needs maintenance. There are 2-3 parts that need the usual clean-up. The water tank, milk container(if there is one), and the filters.
Even though water isn’t exactly dirty if it’s hard it can lead to limestone buildup. So, to prevent that, you should give it the usual wash cycle. As for milk containers, you know how hard milk can be to clean off. But we have items that prevent milk from burning on the bottom, so consider those.
Another thing you should keep in mind, will the machine fit in your kitchen? When buying an appliance like this, having an available space is important. If there’s no room for the Nespresso, it will get damaged really fast. Don’t squeeze it in too, that’s not responsible use.
This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t get one. Just look for a smaller model, something with a compact design. You should always have room to work with around the machine. That way, you won’t spill stuff on it or hit it around.
When it comes to cup sizes, I think most of you won’t be that picky. The average Nespresso machine has 2 cup sizes: Espresso( the normal small espresso) and Lungo(espresso with more water). When you’re in a hurry, you go for the small cup. When you want to enjoy a larger cup, you go with Lungo.
For most people, the basic 2 cup sizes are just fine. But if you want a Latte Macchiato or an Americano, you want a larger cup. So, if you want something more versatile go for a machine with a variety of cup sizes.
What about adding milk to your coffee? Nespresso machines don’t process milk on their own. There needs to be a separate container for milk. So, if you want to add creamer to your coffee, or if you are a fan of milk froth, get something with a container for milk.
Price & Warranty
Lastly, you need to keep an eye on the price of the machine you want. Appliances like this can be quite expensive. Most people need to save some money before buying one. So, a Nespresso machine is an investment. I’m assuming you already know about the added cost of buying capsules.
You’ll find something that fits your financial situation for sure. Check out our budget option and under 400$ option. I will advise you on making sure the product you buy has a reasonable warranty deal. Anything with a 2-Year warranty or more is worth it.
Related Questions And Other FAQ
What Is Nespresso Machine Descaling
Descaling is a process where the Nespresso machine is being cleaned from lime and calcium. Due to the hard water, the container gets lime buildup. Lime and calcium can’t be cleaned like you clean regular dishes. You need a descaler to get rid of lime.
How Often Should You Descale Nespresso Machine
Most people advise on descaling once every 6 months. It depends on your water supply. Usually, if you notice a significant lime buildup, you should descale the machine. Manufacturers say that once in 3 months is the ideal cycle.
What Is The Smallest Nespresso Machine Cup
Ristretto is the smallest Nespresso cup size. Ristretto comes in 25 ml. It mostly available in commercial-grade machines. Machines that you see people using at home usually have only the 40 ml Espresso cup.
Is A Nespresso Machine Worth It
If you’re a coffee enthusiast, a Nespresso machine is definitely worth it. Brewing coffee without the machine is not something everyone can do. A Nespresso machine skips the learning process of brewing coffee.
Drumrolls on Quietest Nespresso Machines
It is tough to make a choice as all the models mentioned above are quiet when you are operating it. The one we feel stands out will be the Nespresso by De’Longhi EN85R with its sleek design, compact size, and bright colors that will look good whether you place it in your home or office. The price point is also quite competitive compared to other similar brands.
