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...

happy until tiny clip broke


Just out of warranty and the clip which controls the spout snapped its tiny useless plastic so coffee poured out the back. Lots of blogs about this issue and $75 to fix - they need to design a stronger mechanism (or is it built in obsolescence ? ) Not...

Love it


I've had this nespresso for a while now and it's always worked great. We are short black and shot drinkers so don't use the milk steamer much but it's great for guests. The best feature is the pods which you can try different flavours. I even ended up...

Use it everyday!


We love our coffee machine, we use it a couple of times a day. The price is high and Nespresso make you buy into the club but the coffee is good and we like the range of flavours. The Milk frother is good too and it does the job perfect.

Love Nespresso but the U is faulty


e the pod in and dispense it manually. Nespresso was very helpful but unfortunately when you send your machine away to be fixed they can only send you a basic machine with no frother which means you have to go purchase a separate frother as the...

Known steam cover issue-recurrent problem


I too loved the Nespresso U Milk initially -makes great coffee with frothy milk and easy to use. About 18 months in coffee started to run into the capsule holder tray instead of through the spout. Descaled and scrubbed steam cover grate with toothbrush...
