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. I'm pissed at nespresso because they sent me an email telling me how important it is to clean it out but then want me to spend even more money to buy something to clean it out.
Summary: My Nespresso D290 Espresso Machine quit working due to several consecutive Brown outs and black outs in my location. I could not live without it but did not want to pay top dollar for a new one. Eventually I found a used unit with regular wear and tear one on E-bay for a fair price and have been enjoying it.
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. The coffee comes in special capsules, basically only available through the online Nespresso Club, where you are asked for the serial number of your machine and name of the seller.
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: This is a well built machine. Performs like it should. The coffee product is excellent. My cousin has one which we experienced about a year ago and we were very impressed. We looked at other Nespresso machines but chose this one because of the two steam attachments. Nespresso calls these the cappuccino & the caffe latte.
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. I emailed the owner wanting more information about the machine and received a prompt,detailed answer to my questions.
