I give in. Perfection is too much work and too messy. Romeo is good enough

Summary: My previous machine was a FrancisFrancis X5. While I could occasionally make truly outstanding espresso and cappuccino with my X5, too often, it took 2 or 3 attempts to pull a quality shot. What a mess! The ESE pods never seemed fresh to me.
Nespresso Romeo make espresso enjoyable, perfect every time
8 November 2009
Excerpt: I bought the Nespresso Romeo directly from Nespresso as a refurbished model. You cant' tell the unit is refurbished and it came in very nice packaging with the guides, etc.It was very simple to hook up. I love this machine because I can make espresso and cappacino both VERY easily.
Summary: I have had several machines over the years and this is the best.The machine is ready and primed in less than one minute.The coffee is excellent and consistent.I do not reccomend the frother . The Froth Au Lait is much better so I use that separately.
Summary: We have been coffee addicts since the early 70's and our last machine was an Olympic from Zabars circa 1990. The Nespresso Romeo is perfect if a bit messy to clean the milk frother. Always on, always hot, place the capsule, push the button. Simple, clean, unobtrusive, quick for one or a dozen.
Summary: I've had my E350 for just over 2 years. While I would recommend a Nespresso machine, I would not recommend this model. First of all, it is extremely loud when making espresso. When I make it in the kitchen, it can wake someone taking a nap on the porch.
