Summary: Bought this since I was tired of spending $5.00 for a specialty coffee at Starbucks. I decided to buy this brand due to its reputation for premium 'home' coffee, so relieved I did! Not only is this the easiest cup of cappuccino I've ever made but its actually better than StarBucks! Worth every penny but next time would purchase the Lattissima Plus.
Summary: My machine didn't appear to work properly. I returned it. Amazon is great for honoring their returns. The space for the cup was too narrow -only takes slim sizes. The spill after the "espresso" was dispensed was a bit over the top. The delay was too long compared to other espresso machines I have owned.. The milk froth worked quite well.
Summary: We just got this machine over the holidays and have been more than impressed. In fact, we're down-right addicted to it. It truly is very easy to use and makes great espressos, lattes and cappuccinos (kudos to Nespresso for excellent pod quality). Has completely replaced Starbucks for us, which has resulted in big savings and convenience. Also perfect for dinner parties, where we can make drink after drink after drink with practically no effort.
Summary: We have had one of these for quite some time (not the same model but the same style and functions) and it has had to be sent back for repair so many times that we are giving up and will be buying a simpler machine. Initially to was great having a machine where you just press a button and it all happens, but fairly quickly things started to go wrong.
Summary: Needless to say the delivery of the machine came on time, excellently packaged, no problems - thank you Amazon. Having looked at numerous machines, the deal breaker for me was when I found that The Fat Duck used the same machine to serve up their coffees. If it's good enough for Heston and his customers, it's got to be good. I've not been disappointed since. Every cup of coffee produced by the machine has been simply perfect.
Summary: It is a good machine and worth its price it makes a great espresso and good cappucino. the only disadvantages is that it takes about 3 minutes to be able to use the milk (warm up) and the foam produced is not thick.
Summary: I got this machine for Christmas and was pleasantly surprised. The milk and the coffee were perfectly hot, and I don't think I could get a frothier milk from starbucks. Would def recommend this machine to anyone who wants a hassle free machine. Only TINY downside is it does take quite a long time (about 3-5 mins) to warm up and be ready to do a frothy drink, but it is totally worth the wait.
Summary: First thing I need to get out of the way - I love this machine!! Going through the manual felt surprisingly daunting at first; setting the programmable water levels, running water through to clean it for first time use, etc. I took my time for a change and it was set up waiting to go pretty quickly. You get a selection of the coffees that Nespresso supply and the first problem is choosing which one to go for! I have no complaints about this machine at all.
Summary: I received my Delonghi Latissima today and couldn't wait to try it. I was not dissappointed. The temperature was perfect and the coffee tasted superb. I had read some reviews which said it was not hot enough?? sorry I have to disagree. I love piping hot coffee and this is what I got. I love the pods as it guarantees the same perfect taste everytime.'On top of all that it is very stylish and easy to clean.
