Summary: Bought this for my parent's after they raved about the espresso they had on a European trip. Now they rave about the espresso they make in their own kitchen :-) The Nespresso machine has a HUGE variety of flavors to choose from, looks great, and is easy to use.
Summary: I have a "real" espresso machine, the S1 Mini Vivaldi II. I purchased this to use at our lake house over the summer. It is small, efficient, easy to use, and makes great espresso. It's not in the same league as the S1, but for $1800 +/- cheaper, it is FANTASTIC! I highly recommend this product.
Summary: This was my birthday gift and I keep it on my nightstand so every morning, I can have a "breakfast in bed" experience. It's small enough for a desk too. Same high quality coffee as with any Nespresso.
Summary: I've been enjoying the machine for a month now and it's working well. The frother also works well, just use 2% as it doesn't really froth whole mile. Almost milk froths nicely too. Beware though...it's a LOUD machine and if you have people sleeping near the kitchen, you'll wake them up.
Summary: It's our second machine of exactly this model, but different color. The strange thing is that they stopped making this color about 4 or 5 years ago. It had been sitting in storage somewhere and had a white powdery coating on the metal and black plastic on top that needed to be cleaned off.
Summary: Love my Nespresso!!! Now I can make most of my coffee drinks at home! It's not too loud, on the small side (that's why it's a pixie), but it does it's job! Does not make as much crema as the pictures show, but still makes good espresso. Worth the price I paid for it.
