I love the Delonghi Icona, but I'm a coffee snob. It is surprisingly easy to use and clean and IMO it's like a toy for grown-ups, you know, pretend you're a barrista in a little cafe in Italy! . My friend has a Nespresso which does the job. It depends what you like, do you want it to look good and taste. The caps I make in the Delonghi taste like the real thing.
