It also has a removable drip tray to accommodate larger cups and includes a bonus chrome carousel with a lazy Susan style base that holds up to 40 capsules.

In Italy, every tabac has a fully stocked bar and a $12,000 espresso machine operated by an old man or young woman who coaxes the black blood of the devil out on demand while fiddling with knobs and pipes. If Italy ever wants to clear its national debt, it can just sell its espresso machines and be in the black within 24 hours. However, in America, knowledgeable baristas are few and far between. They definitely aren't working at Starbucks, and the ones working at Intelligentsia are filled with the kind of disdain for their customers usually reserved for war criminals at The Hague. Therefore, the best option in America is to buy a Nespresso machine.
The U is compact, with an adjustable water tank you can shift to the side to nestle it into a corner more easily. The machine auto-ejects your capsules and holds up to ten spent ones, so don't forget to empty it every few days. The results are consistent, and have a great crema on top. The Nespresso service makes it easy to reorder capsules. All in all, I really couldn't be happier.
This unit, the U D50, I bought for my office. While it makes good coffee like the Pixie, it's not as well engineered, and the coffee pods sometimes refuse to produce coffee. The lack of a mechanical lever to remove the pods means that pods are often wasted if they don't produce enough drip, since the machine will automatically eject them. On the Pixie, this isn't a problem.
Otherwise, these Nespresso pods make very good coffee and save me money since during the workday I'd be getting shots from Starbucks at more than twice the cost.
