Summary: I purchased this machine and used it from 2004-2012 without a flaw. And I must admit I never even descaled it. It was a fabulous espresso maker and I loved the manual operation so I could pull extra long shots when I wanted to.
Summary: I was able to purchase this unit as a demo unit from one of my kitchen stores. For the price I paid and the value of the machine, I did extremely well. The Nespresso D150 is a great manual espesso machine.
Summary: I purchased the Nespresso D150 a couple of months ago to keep in my office. The capsule system is very convenient and easy to clean. I really enjoy the espresso it produces, particularly the Arpeggio and Ristretto varieties.
Summary: Very easy to use, clean, efficient. Works better if it has been on for awhile. Crema on the coffee is always perfect. Still 'testing' all the different capsules. Some are definitely more flavorful than others.
Summary: I've had this machine for 3 weeks and am very pleased. I have not stepped foot in Starbucks since it arrived! Very easy to use and the selection of coffee sent with the machine was an added bonus (along with 2 cups and saucers).
Summary: ....when a friend offered me a cup of Nespresso from her machine. I immediately went online and bought myself one despite doctor's advice. It has excellent flavour and aroma - and the different blends offer a good variety for different moods and tastes.
Summary: I have three Nespresso machines, including this one. My comments concern the Nespresso system rather than any particular machine, but I can't see paying the money for this D150 when for only a little more you can get the D300.
Summary: This is a great machine for espresso. I would recommend it time and time again. It's consistent and convenient. There are a variety of pods so you can get specific levels of strength for your taste. For example, I like dark and full-body coffees while my wife likes lighter coffees.
