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...
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.
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.

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.
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.
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...

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...
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.
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.
