Around 40 machines make espresso with the proprietary Nespresso capsules. These machines gain in ease of use, but cost much more to operate, day to day, than a traditional machine, or even a pod machine.
Product Reviewed: Maestria
Bottom Line: The machine has mechanical design deficiencies and Nespresso needs to address this rather than blaming the customer.
Product Reviewed: D290
Bottom Line: Not worth it! Buy the simpler Nespresso if all you want to do is pour a very quick shot. Otherwise, try a different brand!

Bottom Line: If you love espresso shots, and love convenience, this is a great machine and an eye-catching conversation piece, too.
Product Reviewed: Essenzia C100
Bottom Line: I wish i could recommend this product because the coffee is decent when it works right but for this price, there are better alternatives.

Product Reviewed: D90/C90
Bottom Line: If clean-up and ease-of-use are a big issues, and recurring cost is not, these machines are great.

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

Product Reviewed: Nespresso Citiz Milk
Bottom Line: Do a good cost analysis before you purchase. They have a hook on you much like buying razor blades when you buy a razor. A one shot drink will cost you at least 70 cents and most milk/water based drinks will require more than one.
Product Reviewed: Nespresso
Bottom Line: Machine is good but if you can't get your coffee delivered then the machine is of no use!

Bottom Line: Great machine, awful customer service from Nespress.
Steve Oshry (quality: 6.3)
Product Reviewed: D150
Bottom Line: very easy to use, consistent results, easy to maintain, coffee quality is the same. However once you have the real thing, you can't go back to this system!

Bottom Line: Great looking, combined grinder&espresso machine for making a good espresso and great cappucino's!

Product Reviewed: C190
Bottom Line: Very good but not great. Perfect for the busy person for whom espresso is a beverage and not a religion.
