Sometimes when researching for Nespresso machines, you’ll come across some models that are under brand names other than Nespresso, especially if you’re in Europe. These brand names include KRUPS, DeLonghi and Magimix. Is there a difference between these machines and other Nespresso machines?
Nespresso KRUPS vs Magimix vs DeLonghi
In the UK, and some parts of Europe, Nespresso is sold under the brand names Krups, Magimix and sometimes DeLonghi.
What’s the difference between Nespresso by Krups or Magimix?
The short answer is this: there’s absolutely no difference to them. They are still the same Nespresso machines sold everywhere around the world.
The only differences are purely in design and color availablility, which does not affect the functionality of the machine itself.
Below, I have listed detailed graphs of what to expect from Nespresso machines by Krups vs Magimix or DeLonghi.
