We’ve long been impressed by the Nespresso capsule systems and Magimix have put their own slant on the Inissia design to produce a truly superb offering. Though, only if you’re a fan of capsule coffee and nothing else. You don’t expect to be producing Espressos manually or grinding your own beans with a capsule machine but many combination machines now offer capsule compatibility. Can you really justify the limitation?
- Easily the lightest machine in the entire Nespresso range making the Magimix easy to move, store and clean. Despite the pronounced, rear mounted water tank, it’s one of the most compact machines on the market.
- The water tank itself is quite small at just 700ml but it produces more cups than you might expect.
- 19 bar pump pressure makes for one of the most impressive small systems you’ll find on the market. You won’t have any complaints about the coffee delivered we can assure you!
- 22 Grand Cru pods, plus limited edition and third party capsules, give Nespresso one of the widest ranges of products on the market.
- You will find 16 capsules in the machine bundle. Generally, this is a variety pack giving you the chance to try out several blends and bean varieties before settling on a favourite.
- Colours available: Summer Sun (orange), Grey, Black and Cream. Restrictive albeit still something for every kitchen
- The inclusion of the Aeroccino milk frother, at additional cost, makes the Magimix much more versatile. The Espresso and Lungo drinks its produces can be converted into Lattes and Cappuccinos.
Always a difficult thing with capsule machines; you expect them to be closer to the lower end of the market but the more the machine offers, the more it costs, which makes sense. The Magimix Inissia costs £89.99 as an individual item and the bundled package with the Aeroccino will set you back £129.99.
That price is still lower than many capsule machines on the market and sits marginally higher than the top end filter coffee machines. The Inissia occupies a very comfortable place in the market and easily justifies its price tag.
Although Krups also made a variation of the Inissia machine, in our opinion the Magimix steals the limelight. This is owing to superior heating times and impressive pump system.
Different types of Nespresso capsules are being launched all the time so you’re sure to be spoilt for choice.
The addition of the Aeroccino adds an exciting new dimension to this machine. You can now produce stunning, coffee-shop style milk in seconds.
