milk not hot enough & needed replacing after 10mnths!
27 February 2013
Summary: I would love to write a positive review as i do love my machine. I love the idea of having a latte in 45seconds...love the look of it, love the nespresso coffee. BUT the milk has never been hot enough. I flush the machine through before making coffee, i heat the cups well before use, I even press the self clean so that the steamer is warm but to achieve a hot drink i have to place it in the microwave...I feel spending this much money shouldnt result in having to do so!
Summary: I bought the red version as it matched (almost) the kettle and toaster. The spec I had from the wife was the cappuccino has got to taste similar to Costa / other coffee houses, its got to be easy to use and it better be hot! After getting the low down of all the reps on the different coffee machines this was the easiest. Some machines require you to use a seperate throther that makes the milk warmish / hot.
Summary: very simple and efficient machine to use, and looks really stylish. Purchased my first machine first week of january 2013, I am now on my second, the pump for milk broke, 30 mile round trip to exchange it no problem with exchange but was told not the first to come back. Have lost faith really hence only two stars but do hope this one lasts longer than six weeks.
Summary: I couldn't be any more thrilled with this machine! My first big purchase upon moving to London was this precious new unit. I'm glad I went for it– it makes perfect cappuccinos and lattes every time. The foam selector and programmable milk and coffee features are all easy to use and make creating a perfectly customized cup of coffee a breeze.
Summary: Very good quality product, easy to use, makes magnificent coffee. Nespresso capsules are not the cheapest but definitely worth every cent. Delivered on time in perfect condition - happy. Highly recommended.
Summary: The DeLonghi Nespresso is the classic example of form meeting function. It looks great, is simple to use and makes coffee quickly. But forget all that; the real attraction of this machine is it makes coffee that tastes fantastic. I have been a long time sceptic that great tasting coffee could be made at home unless you spent thousands on a machine that took years to master, was the size of a small fridge and took an hour to clean after each use.
Summary: Bought this to replace a well loved and worn out delonghi. Their machines just get better. Purchased the blue because it was on offer needed have worried about colour as it's such a deep blue looks black. Neat and easy to use.
Summary: Forget about crappy cappucinos and lattes outside at coffee shops! Now I can have them just as I like it always with great quality! And you still have your expressos just the way you love them! The compact size makes it perfect for small size kitchens. The easily removable milk box is easy to store in the fridge from one day to another, so there is no waste, and very easy to assemble/ disassemble, so you can have it cleaned in the dishwasher. I just love it!
Tepid coffee from first machine but second one better
9 February 2013
Summary: We ordered this in order to have good quality, tasty coffee at home. We tested the machine in a local department store and were happy with its performance but didn't try it with the hot milk. When we got the machine through Amazon we were very disappointed as we only drink milk based coffees and the coffee produced was tepid at best. We had to heat it in the microwave even though neither my husband nor I like particularly hot coffee.
Summary: This machine is just incredibly easy and fast and makes delicious coffee and frothed milk. The milk is hot enough, though there is no temperature adjustment on it so I know some people find it not quite hot enough. For me it is fine if I drink it right away. Yes, the water reservoir is a bit small, but we only make 3-4 cups per day so it's not a big deal to refill it.
