Product Description

Nespresso C101 Essenza Automatic Espresso Maker

Nespresso has developed a unique extraction system specially adapted to capsules. It controls every vital setting when preparing a perfect espresso. Nespresso machines have been designed with renowned partners and designers, and bring out the taste and aromas of coffee by combining quality of design with ease of use. The Nespresso C101 Essenza Automatic Machine is part of our compact line, which features a modern, compact, and practical design. The machine deploys technology essential for preparing an outstanding espresso, and is exceptionally easy to use. Automatically control the amount of coffee in the cup. The high pressure pump extracts all the aromas and develops a smooth crema. The thermobloc heats water to between 187 degrees and 196 degrees during extraction and empties the remaining water after each use so that the water is fresh for each preparation. It uses a simple system which perforates the capsule and soaks all the ground coffee to optimally filter the coffee. The functional handle system allows for easy coffee preparation. Automatic ejection of used capsule makes cleanup a snap. The water container is removable for easy filling. Includes 16 coffee capsules (1 sample of each Grand Cru offered). All Nespresso machines include this sampling pack.

Features
  • Thermoblock heating element
  • Easy insertion and ejection of capsules
  • Holds 12-14 used capsules
  • Removable water tank: 30 oz. capacity
  • Simple descaling mode
  • Lightweight, 6 pounds

I was quite skeptical about such a system until I had a demo of it at my local Williams-Sonoma store. It makes a very acceptable espresso, in addition to a roughly 4 ounce coffee. No one should be under the impression that this makes the world's greatest espresso. But it is very good, and very simple. Pop in a capsule, press the button and seconds later you have a great espresso. No fuss, and no mess.

On other sites I have heard complaints that you are locked into Nespresso's capsules, which is true, however I am finding that there is enough variety to keep me satisfied.

For my casual espresso drinking habit, this machine fits the bill perfectly.

I owned this machine for 5 years while living in Europe and it performed extremely well. I gave it to a friend when I moved back to the US about 1 year ago and she is still using it. Since water was very hard over there, I used white vinegar (1/4 tank vinegar the rest with water) to clean it once every 2 months. I had purchased one kit from Nespresso only to realize it was actually pure vinegar. I ran the vinegar mixture 3 times and then rinsed the machine using 3 full tanks of fresh water.

The machine is simple. It makes consistently excellent espresso every time. La crema is excellent. i would recommend this machine to anybody who loves espresso, lattes, etc. It is small enough to tote on vacation, and all my friends have always been impressed. For the money I don't believe you can beat it. Customer service from Nestle has also been outstanding.

My understanding is that the patent on the Nespresso coffee pods has expired. We will probably be seeing pods from other vendors before too long. My opinion is the the Nespresso coffee will still be better, though. Nestle puts a lot of effort into making excellent coffee blends and I doubt that anyone else will do as well.

This product is easy, no muss, no fuss and tastes great! The refills aren't cheap, but I've found that if you order more than you need, the shipping costs are neglible.

Since I have been pulling my own espresso shots with a semiautomatic machine and selecting my own coffees the Nespresso never appeared to me as a "serious" espresso machine. After speaking to a few people I know and surprisingly finding out that they are using Nespresso machines I had to give it a whirl. I didn't know about Nespresso's reputation since the 1970's and how many people hold this espresso maker in such high regard.
After purchasing the Essenza C101 and savoring my first shot, I have been immensly pleased. The espresso is top notch, first class all the way. Thermoblock heater with perfect temperature regulation, 19 bar pump driven and a the ability to manually regulate how long to pull the shots adds up to a great combination. The espresso capsules are delicious and the crema is velvety smooth. The 16 capsule sampler it comes with gives you the chance to taste a variety of coffees. I also ordered 50 capsules with my machine (you must purchase from Nespresso's Club) based on the descriptions I read and they were right on the money. Citrus, Floral, Cereal, Chocolaty, Peppery, whatever descriptions they gave were very accurate. The convenience and easy cleanup is a bonus, but for me not the main selling point. It's all about the taste and Nespresso delivers in a big way. Highly recommended for espresso lovers.
