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.

Froths soy milk and oat milk


k lining to the lid because it was just too hard to clean. On a side note, I have noticed if you use the frother completely dry, you get a lttle more foam on top. If I rinse it before using and the top inner exposed part is still wet, there is a little...

Six months out of it warranty my machine would not work!


Very disappointed. As with other reviews below we had intermittent troubles with the machine from the start. Bought originally from Harvey Normal for about $300. Six months out of warranty coffee started going straight into the drip tray and not coming...
