Water Hardness Setting Of Machine 

Do you know that the quality of your coffee can be greatly impacted by the water you use in your coffee machine? Hard water, rich in minerals, can leave behind buildup in your machine, affecting its performance and lifespan. But fear not; by adjusting the water hardness setting, you can keep your coffee machine functioning at its best and brewing delicious coffee every time.

Let us Discover the magic of perfectly crafted coffee by understanding the importance of water hardness and learning how to adjust the setting on your machine. 


  • This stage involves determining the water hardness (i.e. the limestone level) so that the machine may customize how frequently descaling occurs. The water hardness level may be determined using the water hardness stick, which can be found on the first page of the user handbook. By default, the water hardness is set at 4.
  • Wet the hardness stick in the water you intend to use. Using the water hardness table, determine the level of hardness in the water. See the table below:

Assembling and disassembling the milk frother of your coffee machine is a simple process that can greatly impact the performance and longevity of your machine. Regular cleaning and maintenance of the milk frother can prevent mineral buildup and ensure that your frother is functioning at its best.

Whether you’re new to your coffee machine or have been using it for a while, it’s important to know how to properly assemble and disassemble the milk frother for optimal results. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the simple steps of assembling and disassembling the milk frother, so you can enjoy the perfect foam and froth in every cup of coffee.

  1. Detach the milk frother from the machine’s casing.
  1. Elevate the head of the machine.

Milk Recipe Preparations When Using A Nespresso View Mug (270ml)

You want that perfect balanced taste in your coffee. Right? To create a perfect cup of coffee or milk-based beverages, it is crucial to understand the proper ratio of milk, coffee, and foam. This guide will provide you with the ideal proportions for each of these components, enabling you to make these drinks with professional-level precision.

 INFORMATION: To achieve the best foam results, it is recommended to use refrigerated UHT or pasteurized milk that is either skimmed or semi-skimmed, kept at a temperature of approximately 4°C. Alternatively, you can use non-dairy milk alternatives like soy, almond, or oat drink.

The amount of foam produced will vary depending on the type of milk used, its temperature, the cup size, and the position of the milk frother in the mug. It is important to clean the milk frother after each use to ensure optimal performance.

CAUTION: When preparing recipes with ingredients like ice cubes or chocolate pieces, make sure that they do not obstruct the movement of the milk frother. It is also crucial to ensure that the milk frother is not in contact with the sides or bottom of the mug to prevent any overflow. To ensure the best results, be sure to follow the instructions provided.

For the best results when making your milk-based beverages, I recommend you to use the Nespresso View Mug with a capacity of 270 ml, which is included in the box and can also be purchased at the Nespresso outlet.

1. Lift up the head of your machine using the handle and place the milk frother.

2. In your view cup, combine the ingredients and milk according to the directions (see the recipes page).

Place it behind the head and lower it until the milk frother is submerged.

3. Lift the lever entirely and insert a capsule only when creating a milk recipe with coffee. Pull the lever back and close the lever. 

4. Select the recipe key. The milk-foaming process begins automatically. While the recipe is being made, the selected recipe key blinks gently.

5. When making a coffee-based recipe, once the milk has been frothed, the flow of coffee will begin automatically. 

INFORMATION: The Espresso button will illuminate at the conclusion of preparation, indicating that your coffee is ready to be topped up.

6. Upon completion of the preparation process, the “Clean” indicator light will illuminate in orange. To clean the milk frother, lift the head and grasp the designated grip area to remove the frother. The “Clean” indicator light will then turn off. The milk frother can be cleaned either by dishwashing or hand washing. 

CAUTION: After cleaning, place the frother back into its housing. It is crucial to wait until the end of the preparation and the “Clean” indicator light to illuminate before handling the milk frother, as the frother may become hot during the preparation process. Always handle the frother by its designated grip area to prevent burns.

7. Take your cup. Lift and close the lever to eject the capsule when preparing a recipe with coffee.

Milk Recipe Preparations When Using Your Personal Cup

When you are using your personal cup instead of a Nespresso view mug, you must follow these 4 rules to ensure the recipe quality and prevent overflow during the preparation of your coffee.

1. Ensure that the cup you are using does not have a flaring shape.

2. The cup must have a diameter of at least 7 cm.

3. For hot milk drinks, make sure to use a minimum of 80 ml of milk.

4. The milk level in the cup should not exceed half of its total capacity.


Here are the instructions for coffee preparations when you are using your personal cup. 

1. Raise the head of the machine and place the milk frother. 

2. Adjust the drip tray to the high position. If your cup is too tall, place the drip tray in the low position or remove it.

3. Put the ingredients and milk for the desired recipe in the cup, place it under the head of the machine, and lower the head.

4. Ensure the milk frother is fully immersed in the milk by adjusting the quantity of milk. The milk should not exceed half of the cup’s capacity.

5. When preparing a milk-coffee recipe, lift the lever completely, insert the capsule, and close the lever.

6. When making a coffee recipe, the coffee will automatically flow after the milk frothing is completed.

7. Once the coffee preparation is done, the “clean” indicator light will turn orange.

NOTE: To clean the milk frother, lift the head of the machine and remove the frother by its grip area. The “clean” indicator light will turn off.

8. Once the preparation of coffee is done, the “clean” indicator lights up orange. Lift up the head, and remove the milk frother using its grip area. The “clean” indicator light turns off. Clean the milk frother. 

NOTE: Before handling the milk frother, ensure the clean indicator lights up. Taking the milk frother by its grip is crucial because it may be hot after the preparation of coffee. 

9. After enjoying your coffee, lift and close the lever to eject the capsule if making a coffee recipe.

It’s time to repay your Nespresso Brewer by performing a descaling process. Over time, mineral deposits, also known as scale, can accumulate in your brewer, and if left unattended, this scale buildup can negatively impact the performance of your machine. 

Descaling is crucial and must be done when the machine signals the need for it (indicated by a steady “Descaling” alert light). The machine will lock itself until the descaling process is completed. The descaling process takes approximately 25 minutes, including a 20-minute descaling cycle and a 5-minute rinse cycle. During the descaling cycle, your active participation is required as you must perform certain operations. So, set aside enough time to perform the descaling process.

  • Once the system is in the descaling mode, it must complete the steps below in its entirety before switching back to the default mode. Any interruption (such as the machine stopping or a power loss) will cause the descaling process to restart.

7. To start the descaling program, press the same keys again. The descaling liquid will alternate between flowing out of the coffee outlet and the milk frother.

8. Once the descaling cycle is complete (the water tank will be empty), the Lungo and Ristretto keys will blink.

9. Rinse the water tank and fill it with fresh drinking water.

10. To start the descaling process again, press the Lungo + Ristretto keys simultaneously for 3 seconds. When the keys blink, press them again to initiate the descaling program.

The descaling liquid will alternate between the coffee outlet and the milk frother.

11. After the descaling cycle is finished and the water tank is empty, the Lungo + Ristretto keys will blink again. Fill the water tank with fresh water for rinsing. Once the rinsing is complete, the “Descaling” alert light will turn off, and the machine will return to ready mode. Store the milk frother in its housing and fill the water tank with freshwater.

12. Clean the machine with a damp cloth and you’re done with the descaling process.
