Summary: This is a great espresso maker. 25 second cold start and about 1 minute to brew an 8 ounce cup. Best coffee ever. Maybe I don't understand how to work it yet, but I don't see this device making a 12 ounce or bigger cup of coffee.
Summary: So, I thought I was getting a nespresso that helped with the milk too - I didn't realize that the nozzle on the right (which looks like the steamers at coffee shops) was for hot water, not for milk. So needless to say, I was pretty bummed. But as an espresso machine it definitely does the job.
Excerpt: I really liked this product. The one I use is at my office, so I don't have to pay for the capsules, which is big since they are not cheap. But it does make good espresso and froths milk fairy well. It does take a bit of time to learn to use it perfectly, but it does its job.
Summary: I recently bought the Nespresso D290 with Aeroccino plus frother. The coffee is great and gadget easy to use, except for the cryptic instructions. A special mention for the frother. It makes WONDERFUL froth automatically. Just one button push. Now for the strange stuff.
Summary: This machine is by far the best espressso/cappaucino machine I have ever bought. I have purchased machines from $200 to $1500 and this one is the best. The aerocino came with my machine and I love that as well. Froths the milk like nothing I have ever seen.
Summary: My sister and daughter have this machine and love it as I do. Easy to use, I loved the price too. At $225 it was very affordable and the Nespresso company is very pleasant to deal with. The machine came in perfect condition, just as described.
