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.
Summary: My beloved Essenza died after 7 faithful years and I was torn about getting the same model or upgrading. Several reviewers had said this machine was quieter than the Essenza- so that pushed me into the upgrade. I love this machine. However, it is definitely not quieter- my husband made me move it further away from our bedroom to the farthest counter in the kitchen. The milk foaming mechanism is fantastic. This is the main thing that makes the machine worthwhile.
Summary: We really love this coffee machine - much better coffee than we get from either our Keurig K-cup, or from the Capresso drip machine that grinds the coffee for each carafe. The machine is easy to use and easy to keep clean - after cleaning the milk dispenser in place we remove it & store in the refrigerator.
Terrific coffee flavor; endless possibilities; small and easy!

Summary: It's amazing that a machine with such a small footprint can produce such a great variety of coffee beverages. When you take into consideration the 16 coffee bean blends, plus several special release blends; add an infinite variety of water-to-bean ratios; an infinite variety of milk proportions and foam thicknesses--well, it provokes excitement each time you turn it on. It is so easy to use and so easy to clean!
Summary: I bought this for our office and I could not live without it! It makes the drinks very quickly, so it's very easy to make a quick drink for guests before a meeting. The milk steams up great, even almond milk. We have an older nespresso machine at home (without a milk steamer) and the coffee doesn't get hot enough, but this one is fine. If you like your drinks -really- hot, preheating the mug will take care of it. The capsules arrive quickly when ordered from Nespresso.
Summary: My wife's favorite coffee maker. This gets used 3 to 6 times a day. She loves it. I don't drink as much coffee but this makes a "A" cappuccino. Beats Starbucks for about 60 cents. We got this because of the ease of use for the milk unit. It stays in the fridge. You put it in when you make a coffee which takes just over a minute. Then hit a button for a 10 second clean. Then pull it off and return to fridge.
Although I hate to admit it, this makes a decent espresso

Summary: I love espresso (and coffee) to the point where I have three grinders, two espresso machines, a moka pot, a french press, and several other coffee brewing devices. Not only don't I mind fiddling with the grind, dose, temperature and other variables, I very much enjoy the whole process and take pride in the skill I've amassed in producing a good shot/cup. My sister, on the other hand, is the total opposite.
Summary: This Lattissima is my 3rd Nespresso machine, my Pixie recently became my "go to" at work. This machine is very easy to use, makes great coffee drinks and is a snap to clean up. I make a latte with a 1/2 ounce Torani French Vanilla syrup and use the large size button, then use the same capsule and push the small espresso button for a bit more coffee. DELICIOUS! ...LOVE IT!!
