Mouthwatering coffee to wake up every sense!

 

I got this machine as a present back in September and ever since I have been hooked on good coffee. This machine is very simple to use, just pop a capsule of desired strength and press one of 2 buttons. The espresso comes out hot with a great froth on...

Fast, clean up a breeze, simple to use, modern looking

Expensive, milk frother can be hard to clean up

Love this machine

 

We had a Capresso espresso machine for a long time and loved having espresso but hated the machine. It was messy and very inconsistent. My husband insisted we buy one of those "pod" espresso machines we saw at Williams Sonoma. I was dead set against it...

Fast, easy, no clean up, no mess, no measuring

Have to order pods online, but we just order a lot at one time

Great coffee - good machine

 

I waffled on this one for awhile. $400 is a lot of money for a coffee machine. I haven't regretted it for an instant since I bought it several months ago.

Great espresso - no fuss

Machine is noisy and vibrates quite a bit when working

Consumer review by:

Finally, a PERFECT cappuccino... almost makes itself!!!

 

Wow, is this a great machine. I won mine at a silent auction and didn't know a thing about it. I had an inexpensive 20 year old Krups that was great, but finally died. I replaced it with a newer Krups and was extremely disappointed with the quality and...

Very easy to use, simple cleanup, many taste, strength, size and beverage choices

Expensive, you have to buy pods online, pods are $.50 each

Fantastic hassle-free espresso

 

I moved offices about four months ago, and there's one of these on my floor. Two months later, I was getting caffeine withdrawal headaches on a Saturday morning, having drunk so much espresso at work. Solution: get one for home.

Unbelievably good coffee. Very simple to use, and a good looking machine

Great Machine

 

For those of you considering the traditional espresso machine vs. Nespresso's patented "pods" of coffee-- go with this one. Although the pods are expensive (about 55-60 cents each), they make great espresso with no guessing and best of all... NO ...

no mess-great frothing wand-consistently perfect espresso shots

not the biggest fan of the "style" of the machine-pods more expensive than beans
