Summary: I have been struggling with this machine for 2 years now. I love how cheap the coffee is and the variety is awesome, but the fact that there is no heat is a problem. Coffee is supposed to be hot and this machine just doesn't make it hot. I don't think I should have to put coffee from a $550 machine into the microwave to heat it up.
want to like it but have to admit to myself I don't

Summary: Since I spent a fair amount on this machine just like the title of the review says, I have really tried to convince myself I like it and kept telling myself i'm not using it correctly and/or i'm being too picky but then i read other reviews that say the same thing and i finally just admitted "I spent a bundle on a vacation I didn't really like". The problem for me is the heat or the lack thereof. And, I'm not even an aficionado of espresso or cappuccino..
Summary: It is impossible to produce a hot latte or cappucino with this machine. I have to heat my beverage in the microwave to make it drinkable. The pods are expensive (55 cents without factoring in shipping cost) and it takes three of the boldest variety to make a twelve ounce latte that tastes like coffee. The milk frother is a little finicky and requires extra attention when attaching it to the machine to make it work properly. Also, the water reservoir is very small.
Summary: This machine was magical for two weeks...and then something in the milk frother broke or got clogged. After numerous calls to nespresso (advice included buying a different brand of milk), Delonghi, and the local Delonghi repair place, we ended up returning it. I understand that Nespresso customer service is supposed to be very helpful, but since this machine is made by Delonghi, they were unable to provide any technical assistance or replacement parts.
Excerpt: машину купили себе в подарок на новоселье, через четыре месяца капучинатор окончательно вышел из строя, вместо молочной пены подаёт слегка подогретое молоко, периодически не доливает кофе.
Pros: Маленькая, влезет куда угодно, легко обслуживается
Cons: В комплекте не качественно переведённая инструкция, так с настройкой объёмов и не разобрались, постоянно сбиваются установленный настройки, ненадёжный капучинатор(сломался через несколько месяцев)
Summary: Die Maschine macht super Caffee. Der Latte Macciato bzw. Milchcaffee sieht toll aus, aber die Milch ist nur lauwarm. Wenn man es sofort trinkt reicht die Temperatur, aber wer will sich einen großen Milchcaffee innerhalb von einer Minute rein schütten? Wir haben das Gerät daraufhin zurück geschickt.
