Summary: I purchased this for my husband for his birthday. We already have a Gaggia espresso machine, and a regular coffee machine But I wanted to be able to have a great tasting espresso or cappachino without having to wait for him to make it for me. I thought we would only use the Nespresso once in a while. Boy was I wrong. We use it All the time sometimes 3 or 4 times a day. My italian family love it to. It tastes GREAT it is so Simple. We both love it.
Summary: This one beats any other machine on the market, it makes way better capuccino then most local coffee shops. However sometimes i just want a regular hot coffee ( Large ) if you know what i mean and this machine is lacking that feature.
Pros: Commercial Grade, Easy To Clean, Great Taste
Summary: Over the course of 15 years, I've owned just about every type of espresso machine trying to find one that works as it should and keeps working. Spent hundreds of dollars, and every single one ultimately ended up in a thrift store...a waste of money. Purchased every brand, tried the Tassimo T-Disc system and it was junk too (their creamer is too sweet, has stuff I don't need, and on more than several purchases was just plain nasty).
Summary: I love the taste of this coffee and how easy it is to use. I don't usually spend this much money on my own presents, but after having one cappucino at a friend's house I feel in love with the taste! My old coffee pot is now in storage.
Summary: This espresso machine was a Christmas gift for my husband. He absolutely loves it. It's compact, quick and makes a delicious cappuccino, latte or espresso. We own a Vienna espresso maker by Saeco and he thinks the DeLonghi Nespresso Lattissima Plus is superior. He did come across a problem with the frothing part of the machine. The company replace that piece but it still didn't work. Now they are replacing the whole machine.
Summary: I bought this machine for Christmas and we have loved using it for making great Cappuccinos. In the week since we got it, we have probably made 15-20 cappuccinos with lots of great froth. The milk frother stopped working today...no froth...just warm milk coming out. We have followed the guidelines carefully since we got the machine a week ago and "purged" the milk frother before and after every cup.
Summary: I just got this machine, and I cannot for the life of me make a hot drink with it. I have no issue with foam, it's just that the machine really excels at blowing a stream of cold milk into my cup during each and every use. Not really my idea of a latte. I went to the Nespresso counter at a local retailer, and the woman demonstrating this machine told me that she is getting a lot of these complaints, and that the solution is to leave the machine on for a long time before...
Summary: It was a gift for each other and we love the ease of it. We enjoy having a cup of cappuccino every evening. Bought new cups also! This product is well worth the price. This machine is very well made. When we buy our new home will punches another one for it so we have one for our condo and another for our home.
