Summary: I have had a Nespresso Le Cube C-185 (Titanium) since 2006. It is in perfect working condition, never had any problem with the machine, the coffee or Nespresso. I love the coffee, any of the varieties. It makes a good strong coffee that is smooth with nice crema. Love this machine, use it everyday!
Summary: From a customer point of view, Nespresso, a subsidiary of Williams Sonoma, is very difficult to deal with. Buying coffee should be an easy process. I received a Nespresso machine as a holiday gift, and now face the choice of either trashing the device or having to “join a club.
Summary: I had been "in coffee" professionally for over five years, using both manual and automatic espresso machines and I have sold this machine alongside other brand name espresso machines. As someone that demonstrated a variety of machines to customers, all I can say is that this machine is the BOMB.
Summary: We love our Nespresso Le Cube! First, let me try to confirm and dispell some conflicting info... The Le Cube is no longer available as a bundle with the frother included. There might still be a few bundle packs still floating around out there for sale and causing confusion.
Summary: There are quite a few espresso machines on the market. The nespresso line is effectively a closed after market for capsules with a low priced machines. The machine itself is quite functional, and fairly reliable. The nespresso line as far as pods go, has the widest selection that i'm aware of.
Summary: Back in the early 80's it took a 3K rebuilt single handle commercial machine to lay out real crema on the top of my espresso at home. After that great Rancillio (sp?) went down in flames, i had 12-15 yrs of want-to-be gadgets that had great crema.
Summary: I resisted buying a Nespresso machine because a) I did not want to be limited to buying their capsules and b) the machines were too expensive.. Then they were $100 off and I kept telling my husband they made the best coffee I have ever had in the U.S.
