Summary: Excellent coffee maker. I love cappuccinos and have saved a fortune not going to coffee house anymore. I make my own. Love it! I love that I can use whatever coffee I like, I used to have a nespresso which limited me to ordering coffee capsules.
Summary: In our house the coffee machine leads a busy, hard life. And we like a very good cup of coffee, espresso and cappuccino or a cappuccino with an extra shot of espresso and of course hot, steamed frothy milk. It is all possible with this machine and it fulfills all our needs and exceeded our expectations. We will never have a Keurig-type machine again! This is THE machine for the busy, coffee appreciating family or person. It is easy to operate, clean and maintain.
Summary: Why you should consider it? Because from the very regular coffee you can make very tasty cappuccino or latte or whatever else you want to. We start our morning with lavazza coffee and in the afternoon we're using pre-ground decaf to make latte macchiato or whatever else. We found one problem do...now you start spending s*** load of money to buy a good coffee! We suggest Lavazza Super Crema. Ah and also..
Summary: The C9 makes an exceptional cup of coffee/espresso, etc. It did take a little time and trial to figure out the settings and options, but it was well worth it. The program feature is great so that my husband can just push the button for his taste and I can easily adjust mine to my liking by turning the dial. It's great that the machine prompts you to rinse, fill beans, fill water, empty coffee grounds. Super easy to clean. The layer of crema the machine produces is great.
Really great with a few things that would make it amazing

Summary: This machine brews a great coffee with a beautiful crema. I use clear coffee cups because it is so nice to look at. The machine does almost everything on its own and tells you when to clean etc. you can also run manual cycles via the manual menu. What would make it amazing: 1) Higher temperature options - the coffee is hot enough when I make it for home, but gets cold quick when I take it with me on the road.
Summary: This is a great machine and easy to use. Everyone raves about the espressos, coffees, lattes and cappuccinos. Even makes great hot chocolate. No messy tamping or clean up. The machine lets you know when to fill beans, water or empty the grounds. There is a cleaning cycle after about 200 cups and this is a little time consuming but the prompts are simple to follow. The water tank is of adequate size but for large groups, I wish it was a little bigger.
Summary: This is an amazing machine that brews perfect espresso, cappuccinos, lattes, macchiatos, etc. every time. I think the milk container is a decent size, it could be a bit bigger, but it all depends on how you like your coffee. The water reservoir is perfect and easy to refill. You don't even need to remove it to refill it. It's very quiet and warms up quickly. I am totally impressed.
