*Note that to make real froth, you need the Nespresso Aericcino frothing machine which is really just an agitating/warming/heating cup like device - Amazon does not seem to sell, it's around $90 but it makes a huge difference versus the slightly non-diary power cream taste you usually get from "fake" pods of cappucino/latte. Of course, it's a separate device that you can use with the Keurig also so you can decide.
Besides the looks, the only difference is that the Keurig sells about 100 different pods of tea, coffee and hot chocolate and available in lots of places while the Nespresso pods are only available online and your choices are limited to about 12 (or whatever they might add or subtract in the future). Though since Nespresso only sells 12, they tried to make sure there is a difference in each of their choices so while you do get "more" choices that work on the Keurig, that does not necessarily mean you're getting a slew of differences ... each Nespresso pod is $.49 each with a minimum order of 50. Keurig pods range in price from $.30 to $.70 but Nespresso's design sensibilities extends to the pods themselves - the "Welcome Pack" is especially cool looking, a minimalistic black box out of MoMa with multi-colored chrome dots - each a pod "window" showcasing the 250 pods that then slide out onto trays like truffles. If you have a lot of company/friends over and want to show off striking good looks even from your instant coffee pod, then you have to choose the Nespresso ...Read more ›
Le Cube makes a high quality shot of espresso, without all the grinding, and tamping required of a more traditional espresso machine.
My only complaint? I wish that the Nespresso representative at Sur La Table (where we purchased the machine) had warned us that the pods are only available for purchase online.
+ Makes good crema-rich espresso (yes, true espresso... think and creamy top layer)
+ Fast start up, from power on to coffee in hand in like 60 seconds
+ Easy clean (front tray simply disengages and separates into 3 pieces)
+ Translucent front makes it easy to see empty Nespresso coffee containers
+ Many coffees to choose from (I think like 15 or so... purchase separately)
+ Warming/storage on top for glasses on both sides (note: space is tight so choose shape/style carefully)
+ Consistent brew with a great flavor
+ A good solid feel to it, does not feel cheap or flimsy to us
+ Overflow tray is huge (and much appreciated I might add)
+ Comes with a small and medium espresso glass
+ Very easy to see remaining water/water level at a glance, with easy access... thank you!
+ Very inexpensive relative to the rest of the field and the pricy junk that doesn't work very well or which breaks
- Coffees not immediately available in my area, must order them
- Will not immediately make a full cup of coffee... requires more than one coffee shot
- Using containers is not the lowest total cost of ownership...Read more ›
minor point, the warming tray didn't really warm much.
We also bought the Aeroccino which makes steamed milk or frothed milk, for making cappacino's and latte's. This is also simple to use and works really well.
the coffee pods system is great: they come in 10-12 color coded varieties that give you the impression that you are a great coffee connaisseur, because you can tell them apart. espresso comes out better than at starbucks. each pod costs 50 cents.
