If you listen to Starbucks and think this is a one stop latte machine you're not paying attention. You don't get 16 ounces of frothed milk from a tiny pod of powdered milk and water. My advice is to avoid the milk pods altogether, this machine shines as an espresso machine so I use it primarily for that. I usually prefer cold lattes, so I get my two shots of espresso from one pod, add any syrup, then the cold milk, then pour over ice. The espresso heats the syrup so it mixes well and doesn't end up all on the bottom, and the milk cools the espresso so it doesn't melt the ice. Tastes just like going into Starbucks, but a hell of a lot cheaper and easier.

As far as the espresso, I love it. Just as good as the multi thousand dollar commercial machines make.

The pods are obviously more expensive than buying whole beans and grinding them, but not so much more expensive that I care really given the convenience. A dollar for the pod, plus the milk and syrup isn't the cheapest option but it beats the $5 the barista charges you. It's faster than waiting in line in Starbucks, and it's in your kitchen.

As for portion sizes, that's how big espresso shots are supposed to be, though again yes the milk pods do not magically produce 4 times the volume in milk.

I have also tried the chai tea pods, and those are excellent as well.

I think Starbucks made an awesome pod espresso machine, decided most people wouldn't buy it if it didn't say latte on the box so they worked out a halfassed way to make frothy powdered milk in the espresso machine. People get these home and expect to make exactly what they get at Starbucks and think the whole machine is no good when the milk sucks.

If you need frothed milk there are plenty of other dedicated machines that can do that far better than this one can.

It's been nearly 25 years since I got my first Espresso maker--a totally manual machine--and I've had quite a few machines since then. I hate to say what my current Jura Super-Automatic machine cost, but I can say that in all those years, I haven't been able to make an Espresso at home that was as good as I could get at a cafe. Well, except with my manual machine, but that was back when I was young, single, care-free and had time to pull a shot (and clean up the grounds, water and general mess afterwards).

While my Jura machine makes excellent coffee, the Espresso just isn't satisfactory, regardless of the roast and grind (harsh, with thin, watery crema that dissipates in seconds). I had wanted to get a pod machine, but I've tasted a number of them and they just don't hack it. Keurig, as well as most of the pod machines, don't really make Espresso, just a small cup of strong, pressure-brewed coffee, rather like my Jura machine. Except for the Nespresso machines (which are too messy and time-consuming for me), none of them brew with adequate pressure or temperature to make a true Espresso. I was skeptical of the Verismo when I first saw it, but the local Starbucks was giving demonstrations and free samples, so I thought I'd try it and this is definitely The Real Deal.

The Espresso is hot, rich, full-bodied and mellow--even the dark roast. Although it doesn't quite produce the thick, dense crema of the best Espresso I've had, it is far superior to anything else out there I've tried and considering how simple and easy it is, I've got no real complaints. I also disagree with the people who think the milk pods taste bad.

Starbucks Verismo 580 Brewer

The Starbucks Verismo single-cup brewer allows you to make your favorite drinks at home: lattes, espressos and of course traditional coffee. The system is very efficient and the ingenious pods make it so easy to use. Update 3/14/13. I am enjoying this machine more and more each day. More pods are being introduced and so there are more flavors and options out there. I've tried some of the coffee pods and I must say I love it!

Positives:
1. Make your favorite Starbucks drinks in just seconds at the convenience of home.
2. Very easy to set up, maintain and use. Modular as well, that is you can change the height of the drip tray.
3. Fashionable and eye-pleasing...they come in different colors.
4. Doesn't take up that much space.
5. Produces great lattes!
6. Well-built system. It looks sturdy and designed to last. Only time will tell.
7. Update 3/14/13. Emphasis on positive #1. It's timesaving machine! Sometimes I'm on the go and the Verismo machine always come true.
8. More variety of pods!
9. Pods provide a more consistent taste every time out. No need to measure just insert the pod and you will get the same great-tasting coffe every time out.
10.Update 12/17/13. The machine continues to work like a charm. I also purchased a Keurig and I have reached the conclusion that the Verismo produces a superior, richer taste. I sampled the Starbucks Blonde Coffee (Light) for both machines and Verismo comes out on top. I made sure to keep the variables to a minimum. Same coffee, approximately the same amount, and there you have it.

Negatives:
1. The pods are expensive. The unit cost per latte is $1.62.
2. The recommended pods produce small drinks. Was hoping for larger sized drinks.
