Advantages high quality coffee
Disadvantages lacks the quality punch which compensates for that hole in your wallet...
please read this viewpoint if you are considering buying this machine.I bought this machine about 3 months ago, and regretfully, I really don't think its really worth the money.
THE UPSIDES:_It makes really great coffee using the high quality Nespresso capsules
_the Nespresso capsules offer a huge range of different coffee bean mixes: perfect for the coffee enthusiast or connoisseur._It has the capacity to make cappuccinos which is a rare advantage.
_As the first review says, it is tough, relatively simple to operate and will last a while as long as you take care of it.THE DOWNSIDES:
_Its really badly overpriced! you buy the machine, but then you have to keep stocked up on the Nespresso controlled capsule monopoly, which is about £60 every time you buy about 150 capsules. If like me you and you family enjoy 2 or more coffees a day that reserve dwindles rather rapidly. The upside to this (yes there is one!) is that I believe the Nespresso capsule patent should be ending rather soon meaning you'll be able to buy cheaper capsules (this is only speculation.)_The design is rather flimsy and not very user friendly.
_You find yourself wanting
Ok the cappucino add on is great but again its flimsy and there's no extra greatness about it. It lacks the rich shine you would maybe expect.
I really don't think such a machine should be so unconventional at such a high price. It feels to me as if this machine was designed for a rich coffee expert. If you are a wealthy coffee expert or you can't go without cappuccinos, then I think this machine will satisfy your needs. If like me you are and average person who needs a new coffee machine, take a good look at cheaper Nespresso ones (who will give you equally great coffee), because like me you might find yourself wanting more than what you got for such a price.Thanks for reading.
