Summary: Nespresso is probably one of the best fresh coffee systems around, I have been using their capsules for years now. This machine is very versatile in their use, producing great expresso, Americano, and a variety of milky coffees easily.
Summary: Long time Nespresso fan. We bought the lattissima a while ago and had a replacement straight after purchase because of a water leak. We have been fairly happy with it since, it makes nice froth, although try if you like the taste of the coffee as this can be very different between coffeemakers, and I am not blown away by this one. Recently however it has started to develop an electrical fault that blows the fuse in the house, usually but not always during warm up.
Summary: Worked ok for a while and then it started gushing water out of the back. Considering water and electricity in close proximity I consider it a hazard. No joy from Nespresso either. We were told to clean the machine. Considering the price premium and the cost of keeping pods to it very disappointed. Now looking to throw it in the bin and buy a proper machine from Roncillia or Gaggia.
Summary: though the milk frother is just that, a frother....I now use the pods for coffee and my normal espresso machine for foaming the milk properly.....quite a useful combination, as the coffee can be produced at the same time as the perfect creamy foamed milk.....thus both are at the right temp...and it does produce great coffee for latte and espresso....had this machine for 3 years without any problems.Nespresso have always been helpful and deliveries are prompt.
Summary: This was purchased as a replacement for my Nespresso Krupps machine which burnt out after 10 years (as did the first one that I bought!), This machine was supposedly a demo model and I got it half price. When it arrived, it was brand new and never used so I got a good deal. On opening the box we appear to have hit the jackpot.
Summary: Worst purchase I have ever made. Coffee lukewarm - milk does not heat up properly. Customer services were very polite but after sending me various (wrong) spare parts I eventually got the correct part but that made no improvement. When I then asked to return the machine and receive refund (paid £400) they declined as it was not within their timescales from date of purchase - even though I had been dealing with them from the first week I got it!!! Shocking service.
Summary: I searched for reviews on the most popular coffee machines and read as many as I could before deciding on this fabulous machine. It does everything it says it does.Being able to set the amount of milk, if required,water and cup or mug size is great. The push in cup plate allows you to slide in an ordinary mug or glass so there is no extra expense involved buying specially designed cups or mugs.
