Is Nespresso Inissia Discontinued

Nespresso Inissia, which is a compact OriginalLine machine, is by far the most popular pick for a Nespresso machine on Amazon, with nearly perfect 5-star rating. However, this model is no longer sold by Nespresso (on their website or through their boutiques). So was it discontinued?

Is Inissia a Discontinued Nespresso Model?

Yes, actually, it is discontinued. Inissia was first released back in 2014 and has been a best selling OriginalLine machine ever since. It simply ticks all the boxes:

  • It is compact in size,
  • It makes espresso, lungo, or pair with an Aeroccino for your favorite milk based drinks.
  • It’s reasonably priced

Since it’s so great, why was it discontinued?

It was simply redesigned into a newer model, the Essenza Mini, which does the same exact thing while being more compact in size.

Nespresso Inissia vs Essenza Mini – The Differences

Inissia vs Essenza Mini


Both models are exactly the same in terms of performance. You get the same serving sizes: Espresso (1.35 oz) and Lungo (2.7 oz), and both can be reprogrammed to your required volumes.


  • Essenza Mini is a slimmer machine, exact dimensions are (WxDxH): 4.3 x 8.0 x 12.8 in. Inissia is 4.7 x 9 x 12.6 in. While the dimensions are not that much different, Essenza Mini is designed to look slimmer and smaller.
  • If you want to place larger cups under any of these machines, the drip tray on the Inissia is foldable, while on the Essenza Mini it is removable.
  • Water reservoir capacity on the Inissia is 24 oz, and it is 20 oz on the Essenza Mini.

So overall, there are very small differences in design, and no difference at all in performance.

Can I Still Buy a Nespresso Inissia?

Yes! Inissia is still available from many retailers. You can buy it if you prefer it to the Essenza Mini. It is still supported by Nespresso and you’ll get full benefits as long as your warranty is valid.

Which Pods Are Compatible with Inissia?

Inissia is an OriginalLine machine, so it’s compatible with espresso and lungo pods from Nespresso, as well as any Nespresso-compatible pods from third party brands, including tea and hot chocolate pods.

If you are buying a brand new Inissia, your purchase will include a set of sample pods that you can try.

Can I Use Reusable/Refillable Pods with Inissia?

Yes, you can. Just make sure to buy high quality pods and fill them with espresso grinds (fine ground coffee). Using the wrong grind size will effect the machine, as well as your coffee, negatively.
