Summary: The coffee making part of the machine is great but the milk frothing unit is incredibly fragile and after only a few weeks use, becomes blocked to the point where milk is spurting out erratically. The first time, I spent hours on the phone with Nespresso support and the reason was put down to either a faulty milk unit, or the family not following the cleaning instructions properly.
Summary: If you like coffee and want a decent coffee, then this is the machine for you! I love strong Italian coffee and drink 'gallons' of it when I'm in Italy at their infamous coffee bars. Finding anything close to the taste and texture in the UK is difficult - they generally are coloured water wanna-be attempts.
Nespresso Latissima Plus Coffee Maker is a winner.

Summary: The machine is stylish. Colour is good. Easy to use. Instruction manual includes everything you would wish to know. Not always easy to find a specific item. Staff are brilliant at answering questions. Different coffees work best with different settings. For a long drink two capsules may be needed. Not expensive compared to café prices but expensive compared to 'instant' but coffee much better. A very good buy.
Summary: This machine is very slick and can make all sorts of different coffees from lattes to americanos. It could not be easier to use, maintain and enjoy. It comes with a detachable milk container which can be kept in the fridge. When you are finished with it, you hold a special button which pushes steam through the milk related tubes so all it kept very clean. The nespresso coffee is brilliant quality meeting and sometimes beating high street vendors.
Summary: I've bought this after a demonstration in the Nespresso shop proved that I could make proper latte drinks perfectly and simply with this machine. What you need is a large tumbler glass and a lungo capsule - I use the strength 7 (dark green). Run the cleaning cycle before brewing the drink to pre-heat everything. Hold the milk button down until you have a good amount of hot milk, then let it run the capsule - hey presto - perfect and hot latte and no fuss.
Great coffee machine - but read this for major tip on use of the frother

Summary: I love this machine and the nespresso coffee. The milk frothing system is great and I would have awarded 5 stars but for one 'issue' with it that is not mentioned in the nespresso user manual and nespresso technical support do not know/advise you about either. After a few months use I found that the milk frother no longer produced frothed milk.
Summary: LOVE IT!!!! Did lots of research on which one to buy I made a fantastic choice. its a great machine. no faffing about with beans and lots of bits to wash. simply put in a capsule and press a button. then another button to clean it.. job done. everything else tatses like dishwater in comparrison!!! it gives instant hot water which we use for tea.
