The machine will set the button you used to brew that size every time (until you change it).
The Nespresso Inissia and Pixie are pre-set to brew 1.35 oz espresso and 3.70 oz lungo beverages. They do not brew 8+ oz coffee beverages like Nespresso VertuoLine brewers. If you want a full-sized coffee, you’ll need to make an Americano.
