In my opinion, the coffee made by this machine is as perfect as you can make in approximately the space of time it takes to make instant coffee (and in approximately the same physical space). The noise is also much less than I have heard with some other Nespresso machines.

No doubt if you choose to grind/roast/grow your own beans you can make better espresso, but for the rest of us the quality is near perfection.

The only issue I have is that you are limited in the height of a cup you can fit under the spout. A standard coffee cup fits fine, but if you want to use anything that is much taller, then most cups do not fit - and I prefer to use the espresso capsules to make a big cup. Even my shortest non-coffee cups do not fit unless I jam them in at an angle. An extra 1/4" of height would be nice....

Oh, and buy your capsules from Nespresso.com. The Amazon.com merchants are reselling genuine capsules at a significant markup. Each capsule is somewhere around 50c or so each and while that is not cheap, it is not bad for me. Not mentioned in the product description is you get an assortment of 16 capsules, so you can decide what you like before you place an order.

edit: Maximum cup height; about 3.25"

It may not cause you to forget your favorite Italian or French cafe espresso, but this machine comes pretty close, without the airfare and hotel. Easy to use, the Essenza pumps out crema-laden coffee time after time. With a $130 price tag and the capsules that go for $.55 each, you're even financially with Starbuck's after 100 cups, and from there the savings mount up. (A back-of-the-envelope calculation is that if you buy this machine and drink roughly an espresso a day during the first year -- versus going to Starbuck's for the same thing -- you will save over $300.) Moreover, the quality of Essenza's espresso is more consistent than espressos I've had at Starbuck's, Caribou, etc. The only question now is the machine's durability, but for now, after a month of use, I'm definitely sold!

My friend had the Keurig. I liked it. Then my sister-in-law got the Tassimo. I loved it and bought one. I rate the Tassimo much higher for quality of the beverages/taste than the Keurig, and have tasted many brands of cups for both. Still loving my Tassimo (even after having to replace the rubber gromet around the piercing blade - which you can get for cheap online) me the the Mrs went to Cancun for our honeymoon, and there in the room was this - the Nepresso, and a few coffee capsules and cups awaiting our arrival. We filled the container with some bottled water, plugged it in, waited until it stopped warming up (only a minute or so), then brewed a cup without needing any directions. Without words, my wife took the first sip and glared at me - then handed me the cup to taste. I said it first - "holy crap is that amazing or what!". Completely in a different league than either Keurig or Tassimo, I said "this tastes exactly like the coffee we get from those $,5000 Late machines". Not only in taste, but texture. Never did we imagine the coffee froth and that much taste from these small capsules. Smaller than the K-cups, so you wonder how they can be so much better!

While there in our room in Cancun, I ordered this one online at Amazon so it would be at our door when we returned from vacation. We just got back and are loving it! Now why only 4 stars with this glowing review? Just a caution: I THOUGHT I was buying the same model as was in our room. While it brews the same, the difference is, the one in our room had TWO buttons for brewing - one to brew a small cup, and one adds more water to brew a big cup. The hotel room model just said "Essenza" and it seemed that was the only choice online.

I have had a nespresso machine for 3 years now at the house. I bought this machine as a second machine for the office. There are now alot of nespresso machines on the market, however my experience with friends who have the more expensive, higher end automatic machines is that the simple manual machine is better. Why is it better ? You can adjust the volume of coffee as you like, or depending what type of cup you are using. It aso tends to be a few degrees hotter than the automatic machines. The automatic machines also add the milk first - I like to add any milk last after the espresso shot has been poured.

Overall, great quality and pricing. Recommended.

Pros - Produces very good coffee. Small and portable for travelling. Easy to use.
Cons - A bit slow. Cartridges are too expensive. Inadequate cup height.
What I do. Buy a package of 10 Espresso Cartridges for $5.00 at Bed Bath and Beyond. After using a cartridge, pop the top out of in and re-use it with finely ground coffee and an aluminum foil cover. The cartridges are good indefinitely.

A manual on-off nespresso brewer for $100. Every time I use it, I enjoy the thought that I've saved $100+ dollars (and counter space) for the burden of having to turn off the pump myself after watching an espresso cup fill for 15 seconds.

No milk frother, but frothers have proved problematical to maintain/clean at work, and we gave up on them. So no capuccino, but hot milk I'm just as satisfied with hot milk.
