Good machine


We love Nespresso and just wanted a second machine at mum's house. This machine was the cheapest of the range and great. It is a little difficult to use if you're use to using a different Nespresso machine as the functionality differs. Easy to clean....

Great machine and good service.


I have had my machine for nearly two years and I love it. Recently it was not perforating the front of pod and when it did as much water went into the drip tray as through the spout. I had three calls to the Nespresso Club and tried several things. On...

Best thing I ever used. Like having a gaffe in the comfort of my own home. Love it. Can't live without. My favourite part about the whole setup is all the different flavours. I would buy one if these for all my aunties to show off to their friends. The...

Just out of warranty and problems


I decided to retire my Aldi machine after 5 years and brought the delongi. Just out of warranty and I now get coffee grounds from the pods in my cup. Yuk. I paid 4 times the price of the Aldi machine yet clearly the Aldi machine was better value ....
