Coffee Machines: How to Choose the Best Nespresso for Your Keto Needs

It's not a surprise to learn that Coffee is popular, especially on a Keto Diet.

Drinking coffee offers many health benefits, including weight loss and increased energy.


Coffee Machines: How to Choose the Best Nespresso for Your Keto Needs - Forever Keto

No longer are you limited to a simple choice of black or white coffee - with Nespresso Coffee Makers the options are endless - from a simple Espresso to a long Latte Macchiato, you can make it with heavy cream, alternative milks, almond butter and even MCT Oil for example! Perfect for the Ketogenic way of life.


The benefits of Coffee in a Keto Diet are Plentiful.


Coffee is a natural appetite suppressant, which can help you to lose weight and keep it off, because coffee will not only give your body the energy needed for day time tasks, but also provide an additional boost in suppressing hunger cravings so long as there's no other food temptations around! This means that coffee drinkers are less likely to overeat or snack between meals on unhealthy foods like crisps or cookies.

It also contains health boosting antioxidants that are good at fighting the free radicals in the body which cause inflammation.

Coffee can also benefit your health on a Keto Diet because it can help you feel more awake and alert. Caffeine is a natural stimulant that helps to improve mental clarity.


When combined with the benefits of burning ketones for fuel, which also improves mental clarity, it means coffee may be helpful for those who are trying not only to lose weight, but have trouble concentrating or staying focused on tasks at hand as well.


Caffeine has been shown to improve your mood, and not just because it tastes amazing. The compounds found in coffee can help to reduce depression and anxiety.

For these reasons alone coffee drinkers will want to make sure they're getting their daily dose while following this way of eating!


"Did you know that coffee drinkers tend to drink less alcohol than non-coffee consumers?" - Dr. Neal Barnard, MD (President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) in his book Breaking The Food Seduction: "Coffee is a natural stimulant and it can help to improve mental clarity."

Why do people like to drink coffee?


Some people drink coffee just because they love the taste, and boy, can you get a never ending variety of coffee flavours, depending on the beans, the roast, the blend, the way it's brewed...


But other common reasons to drink coffee are:

  • To wake up in the morning

  • For a quick energy boost before work

  • To stay alert during a long day or a night shift

  • To help with focus and concentration when studying

  • For an afternoon pick me up to keep going until dinner

  • To help stay awake when driving at night

  • To aid digestion after a meal

  • To be sociable and meet up with friends

There are many, many reasons to drink coffee, so it's no wonder that many cultures consider coffee an important part of their day!


Picking the Right Coffee Machine for You


With so many models to choose from, how do you pick the right coffee maker?


There's always more than one option available, and I'm not just talking colour here. When choosing your machine, things you might want to consider are your budget, the space you have - and therefore the most suitable size machine for you - what type of coffee you enjoy and want to make at home, and the features each machine offers.


It's all too easy to get caught up with the idea of fancy features that sound fabulous, but if you won't use them, what's the point in paying for them!


The right model for you will depend on what your needs and preferences for drinking coffee are - some people like a strong espresso with lots or crema (the foam that forms at top), while others prefer just an Americano which has less caffeine.


If you are wanting to make Bulletproof Coffee to start your Keto day, you might want to choose a machine with a separate milk frother, that can melt the butter / coconut oil as it blends the MCT Oil into a froth to pour over your espresso. Yum!



Tips to Help You Choose your Coffee Maker


Coffee is a drink that most of us can't live without. It's the perfect pick-me-up, and it tastes wonderful. There are different ways to enjoy coffee though, and whether you prefer espresso shots or coffee with milk, there is a Nespresso coffee maker to suit your needs.


Here we'll look at tips to help you choose the Best Nespresso Coffee Machine for your Keto Needs.

1. Set your Budget

The first thing to consider is the budget you have set for your purchase!

There are a variety of models available at different price points so it's important that this factor be considered before making any decisions on which one would best suit our needs as coffee drinkers - whether you are following Keto Diet or not!


In this article we are going to look at the various options available from my favourite brand - Nespresso.


2. Select your Options


One you have a budget in mind, the next thing to consider is which options are important to you.


Is a standard Espresso size all you need, or will you want to make longer coffees, such as Lungo or Alto, which requires a model with an adjustable cup size.


Do you just want to make a basic cuppa joe, or are you looking to experiment with recipes?

An inbuilt frother is convenient, but may not be as flexible as an Aeroccino for complex creations.

Because some people worry about using whole milk on a Keto Diet due to the high natural sugar content, it's good to know that both Nespresso in built frothers, and the Aeroccino, cope well with Keto friendly choices such as Alpro Unsweetend Almond Milk - which has the lowest carb content.

How many people will be using it? You'll want to consider both the water tank and used capsule capacity if multiple people will be making coffee throughout the day.


Programmable cup size and variable temperature are fabulous options - but better for when just one person is using the machine, so that there are no squabbles about someone messing with your settings!


3. Know your Space

There is no point making a decision, only to find it won't fit in your space, so make sure to check things like dimensions and cord length, to ensure your selection will fit where you want it to on your kitchen counter, in the office, or wherever you will be using it.


An Introduction to Nespresso


Nespresso is the most popular brand of Coffee Maker in Europe, partly because they use recyclable pods that contain pre-measured doses so you don't have any waste (unlike traditional drip machines).


When it comes to coffee, people know who the king is! With different aromas and flavour, this coffee brand creates a heavenly palette.


Nespresso espresso pods contain between 55-65 mgs of caffeine in their espresso and 77-85 mg in their Lungo coffees. The Kazaar blend is the only exception because it contains approximately 125 milligrams of caffeine.


Nespresso have a number of models available, from seemingly basic - but incredibly capable - mini machines like the Pixie, to the all singing, all dancing, irresistibly beautiful Atelier - my dream machine!


Before we look at the original range, let's start with the newer Vertuo range, because a Keto Diet requires a higher water intake, and what better way to drink more water than in a longer coffee!


Nespresso Vertuo

Nespresso introduces Vertuo, offering freshly brewed coffee with a rich crema, even in a large cup.


The Vertuoline is the perfect machine for those who want to enjoy a longer coffee in less than 40 seconds!


An evolution on the classic Nespresso pods, the larger Vertuo capsules are tailor-made for the perfect coffee development so you can be sure of having a rich taste every time. The Vertuo capsules are made of a special blend that is ground much finer than the traditional Nespresso pods. This means you get more flavour in every sip!


They also have capsule options, like the Double-Espresso, for an intense espresso experience which has more caffeine than other blends. The Nespresso Vertuo range offers coffees with a range of 70 to 200 mg of caffeine per cup. Note - The intensity of coffee doesn't refer to an amount of caffeine in it, it describes the flavour profile.


Models available: VertuoPlus, VertuoPlus Limited Edition, VertuoNext, VertuoNext Deluxe
