Mouthwatering coffee to wake up every sense!

bymilashka13 Jan 20, 2010
17 Helpfuls 18 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Fast, clean up a breeze, simple to use, modern looking.
Cons Expensive, milk frother can be hard to clean up.
Recommended it? Yes

I got this machine as a present back in September and ever since I have been hooked on good coffee. This machine is very simple to use, just pop a capsule of desired strength and press one of 2 buttons. The espresso comes out hot with a great froth on top. The cappuccinos are very easy to make as... Read full review »


Love this machine

Pros Fast, easy, no clean up, no mess, no measuring.
Cons Have to order pods online, but we just order a lot at one time.
Recommended it? Yes

We had a Capresso espresso machine for a long time and loved having espresso but hated the machine. It was messy and very inconsistent. My husband insisted we buy one of those "pod" espresso machines we saw at Williams Sonoma. I was dead set against it - I figured it could not make decent espresso... Read full review »


Great coffee - good machine

Pros Great espresso - no fuss.
Cons Machine is noisy and vibrates quite a bit when working.
Recommended it? Yes

I waffled on this one for awhile. $400 is a lot of money for a coffee machine. I haven't regretted it for an instant since I bought it several months ago.

The coffee is great - I like the Ristretto and Arpeggio blends especially. Dark, syrupy palette-pleasing crema. I had to add some sticky... Read full review »


Finally, a PERFECT cappuccino... almost makes itself!!!

Pros Very easy to use, simple cleanup, many taste, strength, size and beverage choices.
Cons Expensive, you have to buy pods online, pods are $.50 each.
Recommended it? Yes

Wow, is this a great machine. I won mine at a silent auction and didn't know a thing about it. I had an inexpensive 20 year old Krups that was great, but finally died. I replaced it with a newer Krups and was extremely disappointed with the quality and loud noise it made, so I returned it. I saw... Read full review »

Pros Unbelievably good coffee. Very simple to use, and a good looking machine.
Cons Caffeine toxicity.
Recommended it? Yes

I moved offices about four months ago, and there's one of these on my floor. Two months later, I was getting caffeine withdrawal headaches on a Saturday morning, having drunk so much espresso at work. Solution: get one for home.

I've spent quite a lot of time in Italy on vacation, and,... Read full review »


Great Machine

Pros -no mess -great frothing wand -consistently perfect espresso shots
Cons -not the biggest fan of the "style" of the machine -pods more expensive than...
Recommended it? Yes

For those of you considering the traditional espresso machine vs. Nespresso's patented "pods" of coffee-- go with this one.

Although the pods are expensive (about 55-60 cents each), they make great espresso with no guessing and best of all... NO MESS!! Compared to grinding beans (appx. 30... Read full review »


A real no-brainer.

Pros Ease of use. Easy to clean. Produces great tasting espresso and perfect froth.
Cons Capsules are expensive and somewhat wasteful. Limited to Nespresso's selections.
Recommended it? Yes

I purchased a Breville 800ESXL for my girlfriend. It lasted just one day in our home. I'm not saying it was a bad machine... but it was a "manual". That meant grinding our own beans and packing the filter as well as steaming the milk. The result was a lot of coffee grinds and spills all over the... Read full review »


Finally, I have found the espresso system I wanted

bypdeon May 7, 2006
19 Helpfuls 20 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros GREAT espresso, fast startup and cleanup, each guest picks his/her coffee capsule.
Cons Minor - may want to add gelpads to the stock rubber feet.
Recommended it? Yes

After many years of trying different espresso machines and endless varieties of grind-your-own beans, I have the solution I have been seeking, in this Nespresso machine.

Most importantly, the Nespresso system makes truly great coffee. Never bitter, great crema, tasty, hot - just perfect... Read full review »


The BEST gets Better

13 Helpfuls 14 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Easy, efficient, cost-effective, delicious choices, great customer support.
Cons Not as elegant as D300, beware frother splash.
Recommended it? Yes

Several years ago, I offered a review on my first Nespresso machine. That unit was based on the Krups engine that was once the standard for good espresso in a manual or semi-automatic espresso machine. Since then Nespresso has introduced several new models including the Concept Machine, the D290,... Read full review »
