Amazing. Important note for all the negative reviewers: READ THE MANUAL.

Summary: First of all this thing is amazing. I have one at home and we bought one for the office. You can read all of the other reviews to hear about how great it is. I'm here to debunk some of the things people are knocking it for in other reviews, because apparently people don't read the manual or bother to learn how these drinks work. 1. Not enough coffee? Water volume for each button is programmable (manual, p10). 2. Too much / not enough milk?
AMAZING! **AAA++ SELLER, GREAT PRODUCT, FAST SHIPPING, WONDERFUL COMMUNICATION **

Summary: This is hands down the finest coffee, espresso, machiatto, cappuccino machine quite possibly ever made. We adore every aspect of each function. You can adjust the settings to your preferences if you want more or less coffee, as well as the steamed milk froth. Completely disassembles for easy cleaning. Almost ever part is dishwasher safe. It has truly changed our lives. Be fair warned about one thing.
Summary: Perfect lattes, capuccinos, & espressos everytime. People don't understand when I say, "I don't like Starbucks", because they've never had one of these before. Warning: this machine will make you a coffee snob... once you've had the best, you won't want anything else.
Pesky air bubble substantially delayed the first cup, but now runs FANTASTIC

Summary: My husband has wanted this machine for years, so I purchased this item factory refurbished to save some $$$. It arrived fast, and we excitedly plugged it in for the first cup. Sadly, no joy. We could not get the water to flow through the machine. I planned on packing it up and sending right back, but I called Nespresso club support (available 24/7) at 800-562-1465.
Summary: I'm a full-fledged coffee addict. That doesn't mean I'm the expert or aficionado that many other reviewers are, but I do know what I like in my cup and I like it often. A frequent Starbucks customer, the local baristas were used to my love of espresso, but when visiting a different store I always got the "you want *how* many shots?" look. Many people complain that Starbucks burns their coffee, and in many cases they're right...
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. The rice milk foams/froths perfectly in this machine! The cleaning function for the frother is easy to use.
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). Add a tablespoon of the tiny sized chips to a cup, use an Arpeggio cartridge and some whole milk with foam level turned all the way down.
