  1. Where is Nespresso repaired in Mongolia?
    Монголд Nespresso-г хаана засварладаг бэ

  2. Where can I buy the capsule container. Plastic container where capsule eject.

  3. I just purchased the vartuo.. Well, it doesn’t have at all the advertised lasting foam… I very disappointed, as so far I have not found a coffee maker in Hungary which does. I had the Seaco Aroma, which unfortunately discontinued, and after 10 years still producing the long lasting cream… no matter what beans I use. Sadly, it was back in the USA.
    This is a sleek design, and advertised with good marketing, but misleadingly showing foamy coffee. Which is coming out only on the long coffee, but as fast as it appears also disappears….. Disappointed.
