Nespresso Essenza

Antoine und Philippe Cahen,

Specially developed for use with Nespresso capsules, this machine is distinguished by a simple and functional design, which is at the same time intuitive and easy to operate. The centrepiece is a novel Compact Brewing Unit (CBU), operated by a lever. Opening the lever inserts the capsule from above with a minimum of fuss. When the lever is closed, the machine is ready for use. When the lever is opened once more, the used capsule will be automatically disposed of in the internal container, and at the same time the system is readied for the intake of a new capsule. The machine is being produced in two versions and will be marketed worldwide under various different trademarks.
