Hey folks, I am new here so be easy on me
I bought a Nespresso Le Cube a few months ago, and have been using daily. I recently went to New York and hit the Nespresso Boutique (and was amazed at ways they can squeeze $$ out of you) and picked up some literature on the Grand Crus. I noticed that in this literature, the ‘Tasting Suggestions’ are as follows:
Espresso Cup (2 oz/60 ml) and Lungo Cup (5 oz/140 ml.) I then cross checked across the rest of Nespresso literature and it indeed states 160 ml and 150 ml as the suggested size. Here is where it gets weird. The factory settings for my LeCube’s small cup and large cup settings are as follows: 40ml and 110 ml. Both are 20 ml off of what the Nespresso recommends. Since both are made by Nespresso, why the difference?
I checked the Concept C290’s manual here (http://www.nespresso.com/precom/manuals ... ne1_EN.pdf
) and could not find a reference to a default cup size. Nor is there one in the C100’s manual (http://www.nespresso.com/precom/manuals ... ne1_EN.pdf
) The Romeo also lacks as specific cup size as default (http://www.nespresso.com/precom/manuals ... ne1_EN.pdf
So my question to the group here is: What *IS* the correct size for the small and large cups? What are your machine’s set to in terms of small and large pour volumes? I know it’s a matter of taste in the end, but I find that difference in what Nespresso has in their own documentation odd to say the least.
