Summary: I have owned this machine for 6 years and use it 3-4 times a week. It still works well and I have been very happy with it. You can make espresso shots, larger "lungo" drinks - both with or without steamed or frothed milk. It is easy to use with only 4 buttons (brew small or large/brew with or without milk). The milk frother has a slider to adjust more or less foam output. The coffee amount the machine will make has been pre-programmed for the buttons but is adjustable.
Summary: Easy to use, easy to clean. No problem with frothier works as described. Reasonable footprint because of front loading water allows unit to be placed back on counter. Only con is the width of the space for tall glass or container a bit too snug. Tough to find glass that fits can - do it but it's a search.
A little time consuming to figure out....but great cup of coffee

Summary: It has been a little bit of a challenge to figure this machine out but once you do.....it is really great. When you use the frother it tends to make the coffee not hot enough. If you put your coffee cup in the microwave filled with water while the machine is warming up...then pour out the water in your mug and do your milk coffee blend, perfect.
Coffee tastes great, but difficult to get cappuccino hot enough

Summary: I've had my Lattisimo Cappuccino machine for about 4 months now. Overall, I'm really happy with the machine and use it daily. However, I bought it because I love Cappuccinos/Lattes, so it's a little frustrating that the milk does not get hot. Whether I make a regular cup of cappuccino or a large for my travel mug, I have to microwave it before I can drink it. It is luke warm at best. This is really the only con to the machine for me, but its one with no real fix.
Summary: My sister in law made me a cappuccino with an older Nespresso Machine and I decided to buy one. After a lot of research and reviews I ended up with a Delonghi Latissma and really like it. I was skeptical after reading reviews, but there are some dense and lazy people out there that write reviews on lot of stuff. I spent a week when I had time trying figure the machine out.
Summary: The paperwork/directions provided are not at all clear. Go to youtube to learn what you need about the machine basics. Others have mentioned it does not get hot enough. That is correct. I am first putting my cup in the microwave to pre-heat.
Summary: Simple to use - fairly automatic. Owners Manula is very poorly done and difficult to follow. Drinks do not come out as hot as one would like and the volumecontrol of milk for cappuccino's is difficult to control. Lastly, the coffee capsules are available ONLY from the manufacturer Nespresso.
Summary: i love the quality of the nespresso coffee capsules. it is excellent coffee. the machine is overall very easy to use and maintain. my only complaint is that the "lungo" regular coffee size is smaller than i thought it would be. i should have researched this equipment in the store first to know this but overall i am happy.
Summary: Ok, got this machine in May I think. First off, this machine makes awesome espresso for a fully auto machine. Three distinct layers in the crema. Could NOT be easier to use. Took a little while to figure out how to make some pretty good milk based drinks. Realized it had a setting on the milk container to adjust foam. I like it a little less dry. Had to figure out what size cup to use with how much milk and which capsule etc.
Summary: Tolle Maschine, platzsparend, Bedienung nach genauem Lesen der Beschreibung einfach, aber man braucht einige Tassen der verschiedenen Zubereitungsarten um gut und einfach bedient zu werden. Die Reinigung ist einfach und ohne Chemie nur mit Wasser.
