Not hot enough

Dittohead, Amazon
25 November 2012
  • Summary: The flavor was excellent and it was great that you cld use your own milk unlike other pod machines. The problem is that it's not hot enough. I considered keeping it and just heating it in the microwave each time but that is unacceptable for a $300+ machine.

I've owned both Keurig and Tassimo systems..for me this is far superior IF you love cappuccinos, lattes or espressos

Chandler, Amazon
18 November 2012
  • Summary: I am a sucker for kitchen gadgets. I was very satisfied with lattes and cappuccinos in the Tassimo system because of the "real milk" claim as opposed to the Keurig which uses a pretty nasty powdered milk blend for any coffees. Then I read the back of the milk pod on my Tassimo system and saw it was also far from all natural. So I went back to Keurig but bought a whip system to whip my own milk in the morning for a latte..

First Espresso/Nespresso Machine

Charles, Amazon
17 November 2012
  • Summary: Amazing! I love cafe con leche, so I wanted to have the convenience of being able to make something very similar at home. This machine is very easy to operate, and has so many customization options. Operating the frother couldn't be easier. Customize your settings, and then all you have to do is push one of four buttons, depending on which type of espresso you would like to brew.

Too complicated for me

  • Excerpt: I have to say, I'm not one for reading instructions, but I'm usually able to figure appliances out pretty easily. This Lattissima Espresso Machine is definitely challenging. I only used it once because I know I wouldn't be able to figure it out myself! The steamed milk feature is nice, but definitely not sensible for an office. I tried to make a strong cappuccino, and all I ended up with was something that tasted like lukewarm/cold steamed milk. No coffee flavor!

Your at home barista with none of the made up words

  • Excerpt: This automatic barista is a great way for beginners or sleepy early risers to get a latte without having steamed milk shooting everywhere and bitter espresso dripping out for a minute. The system is pretty foolproof and the ability to create americanos, espressos, macchiatos, lattes and cappuccinos with a push of a button is awesome.

deal of the year

M. Schoenberg "Mitch", Amazon
2 November 2012
  • Summary: Just got my sub two hundred "made in Italy" Nespresso machine, and WOW, what a nice upgrade from the Nespresso U that I recently bought. The U is cute but requires a separate frother (aerocinno) which has a non stick coating that scratches so easily + it takes another power outlet + space on the counter. Not to mention the hassle of cleaning it after each use. This unit with the removable/ place in fridge milk container is ingenious.

Ok for espresso, less so for fancy drinks

CarolFK, Viewpoints
30 October 2012
  • Excerpt: The idea of being able to make your own cappuccino at home is really appealing. The look of the machine is very sleek, but the appliance takes patience. I found myself reaching for the directions often, and the resulting cappuccino was too milky for my taste. Too much milk to coffee ratio. It makes espresso too - and that tastes better...but again, I found it to be not entirely intuitive.

Not an ounce of regret

Peg O "Berkshire Girl", Amazon
25 October 2012
  • Summary: I was a little concerned by some of the less than stellar reviews and issues expressed by reviewers. I did notice many of them are older and so it may be that earlier models had issues. I've had this little gem for about a month now and have had zero issues. I just changed jobs and am now working from home every day. Although we have a great little independent coffee shop (Tunnel City Coffee shoutout!

Makes great espresso and Cappuccino -- easy to clean

Patrick L. Ogburn, Amazon
7 October 2012
  • Summary: I love this machine. It is a breeze to use, and it makes great espresso & cappuccino. Pros: - The espresso varieties are excellent, and it produces a nice crema. - It is a breeze to use. Making an espresso takes less than 2 minutes, allowing for unit heat up. After you brew the espresso, you just lift the lever again and it drops the spent cartridge in a holding bin until you are ready to dump it out.
