Summary: It's like having your own "barista" in your kitchen! It's fast, brews perfectly every time, and it DELICIOUS! The "Lattissima" is definitely the best machine if you're a (latte, foamed milk lover). I personally use rice milk because I don't like regular dairy milk.
Summary: The taste is great and the product is easy to use. The beverages are just not hot enough. Since they aren't really hot to begin with they cool down to room temperature very quickly. That means you have to drink them quickly. I would prefer not to have to drink them so quickly.
Summary: I had cafe mochas in the morning on a trip to Vienna and I bought this thing hoping to recreate that magic. It succeeded and I am definately hooked. TIP: If you like chocolate, get some Ghirardelli Barista Chocolate chips (sold on Amazon in a big box).
Summary: My wife and I were hesitant to purchase this machine because of the price, but we bit the bullet and purchased it when Nespresso had a deal earlier this year. We absolutely love the machine. The coffee, lattes, and espresso's come our great!
Summary: I have been using this now for three months. With a long history with semi automatic coffee machines, I am hesitant to say anything for the first few months, but this has consistently put out some quality product.
Summary: I use to love Starbucks until I house sat for a friend with this magic machine. The minute she came home I had to get one and of course amazon came to the rescue. Since then, I use this magical machine 2-3 times a day and the favors of coffee are exquisite.
Summary: I would have given it a 5 star rating if it was not for below. I have had my Lattissima for about 7 months now. I love the drinks it makes. About 1 month ago, the milk started not frothing well. This got worse until it didn't froth at all. I cleaned and descaled it twice.
Not as good as the Essenza/Aeroccino combination but more convenient

Summary: I have the Essenza and Aeroccino milk frother. This combination makes an amazing cafe au lait and cappuccino. The only problem I have with the Aeroccino milk frother is that you have to wash it out every time you use it.
Summary: This machine has a small footprint on the counter, has a wide variety of delicious coffee. I explored more expensive options, i.e. the super automatics, but did not find these to provide a better experience than the Lattisima. Getting the coffee on line is easy and it arrives quickly.
