Summary: We live in two locations; after trying out one machine (DeLonghi Red Lattissima Plus Nespresso!) in one home,and loving it,we bought the same one for our other home. It took me awhile to read through all the instructions,but once I did,it couldn't be easier to use and clean. Love the individual coffee pods,the design,everything. Great investment!
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!!
Summary: I've been thrilled with my various Keurig machines since I first stumbled onto the pod-coffee concept a few years back. We've had several at home (admittedly, that's more of an indictment of Keurig's reliability than a ringing endorsement - but we did keep going back for more), and I've had one at the office that's saved me from many a cup of intolerably bad company-provided coffee.
Summary: We first experienced this machine at our Brazilian/German friends house in the Netherlands. We fell in love with it and ordered our very own machine and enjoy easy to make cappucinos, lattes, and coffees. The machine is incredibly easy to use and has so many smart features. You can program the volume of water on all drink settings so if your cups are a certain size you can have it programmed to fill your specific cup sizes.
Summary: Unless you have been a loyal early generation Nespresso user, as I have, you cannot fully appreciate the significance of the statement that "I burned my tongue." I have never been so happy to burn my tongue before. I have owned a Nespresso Le Cube (no longer made) for several years now, and in fact, wrote a detailed and long review here. My only complaint was that the Nespresso didn't truly make a hot cup of coffee.
Summary: I have the DeLonghi EN680 stainless with the cup warmer on top. I loved the machine. It made great espresso. The two things I thought could be improved on the machine have been with this newer version. I just replaced my old machine with this version the Lattissima plus stainless about 3 months ago. My other machine is still working and my college son loved it so he has it now.
