Nespresso is the world’s best-selling coffee machine. You can find its machines in homes, offices and hotels all over the world.

Favre invented the Nespresso system. The pod containing the coffee was sealed, keeping it fresh. In use it ensured greater aeration, like the repeated pumping Favre had noticed. In operation, a sharp-pointed spout would pierce the capsule and inject pressurised hot water. Forcing the foil against a spiked plate which burst it inwards, letting the espresso flow out of the spout. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

Nespresso is a device patented in 1994 by Italian engineer Achille Gaggia. It was designed to automate the traditional caffeine making procedure, . Reducing the number of steps needed to produce a shot of caffeine to just four. The automatic delivery system is a combination of a pump, a boiler. And a basket under a pressurized stream of water that forces hot water and ground coffee. Through filters and a brewing head, creating an caffeine shot at the push of a button.

Nespresso sells or licenses a number of different machines mostly made in Europe. The machines carry well-known kitchen-equipment manufacturers' names such as Krups, Breville, and DeLonghi. But are mostly manufactured by Eugster/Frismag, a Swiss company that is one of the world's largest coffee-machine producers. DeLonghi manufactures the Lattissima models in Italy exclusively. Eugster/Frismag is strictly an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and does not sell under its own brand. In 2000 Nespresso began distributing machines bearing the "Nespresso" brand. There are numerous models that range in complexity and price, from the entry level Inissia, U and Pixie ranges. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
