"Easy peasy coffee…"
We've had this coffee machine for about 7 years and it's still going strong. Virtually no cleaning (we just descale it every year), a quick wipe out and it's all done.
The coffee capsules are expensive but that's well worth it to simply pop in the top, close the lever and pour a coffee. There's loads of choice of capsules but not many places to buy them over the counter so we order online. I don't really like coffee but the milder varieties are lovely. DH is coffee nut and he loves the stronger capsules, it's perfect for everyone.
A great addition is the milk frother, hot frothy milk makes a delicious latte and solves the problem of adding fridge cold milk to the coffee making it a smidge too cold.
I agree that you can only fit a little cup underneath, we use expresso cups and then pour into a larger cup for lattes.Read moreLess

Great coffee machine. Lots of choice of capsules. Very easy to use. Only downside is the capsules aren't cheap.Read moreLess
"This is a fantastic coffee maker. It takes under 2…"
This is a fantastic coffee maker. It takes under 2 minutes to warm up, and it's really easy to use - just lift the silver lid to insert a Nespresso coffee capsule, push the lid down and turn it on!
The variety of coffee available from Nespresso is excellent, making it great for a coffee-snob! It's rich and tasty, and your cup will come with a delicious foam creme on top.
Cleaning is easy - you just pull the water bottle and tray out and they're dishwasher safe. It is a very durable machine; mine's been used every single day for 3 years now!
The only two downsides are that the coffee is hot, but not boiling -- great if you like it black, but if you want it particularly milky it can pay to microwave your milk first. The other downside is the height of the coffee nozzle - I had to buy new coffee cups to fit under it, whereas some of the other Nespresso machines have adjustable heights.
In conclusion, while it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of some of the other Nespresso machines on the market, it doesn't have the huge price tag either. A good value machine that brews a great cup of coffee!Read moreLess
