Bottom Line: Close to perfection for the office-bound shot lover
Positive Product Points

Perfect for the office, attractive design, extremely easy to use, very clean, excellent espresso - comparable to a "real" espresso

Negative Product Points

Tied to buying the capsules, high cost per shot

Detailed Commentary

I never drink institutional coffee and always make my own at work.  This machine is perfect for the office environment.  I only drink espresso and so the C90 is just what I was looking for.  Gone are the days of grinding beans, trying to dispose of the used grounds, measuring out the water, cleaning up the mess...  This machine could not make it easier.  To boot, it is attractive and well built and the capsules have made me a believer; the first few shots compare very favourably with espresso from a real coffee shop, in many cases better.  The relatively high cost per capsule makes this arrangement less desirable for the home; but in the office it's absolutely worth it.

Buying Experience

Shipping was prompt and packaging was good.

Three Month Followup

After 3 months, my opinion of Nespresso is unchanged from my initial rush of enthusiasm.  My high opinion of the quality of the Nespresso capsules remains and I have been very happy with the ordering and delivery process.  In fact, I bought another one for home.  Of course, it cannot compete with a real espresso from a real cafe; but it beats most commercial producers and destroys the competition for office and home use.  Combined with the Aerochino what else can one need?

One Year Followup

One year later the C90 keeps rolling along.  I haven't downgraded my opinion; in fact it only gets higher.  I have taken it on vacation; I took it on a business trip.  What I really need is one of those fancy, but expensive, carrying cases.  There are really very few coffee shop espressos that can beat it, certainly neither Starbucks nor Caribou come anywhere close.  I have probably saved hundreds of dollars, even though the capsules cost 50 cents and you have to pay shipping.
