R.I.P a short and expensive life.


In spite of using low mineral content pure cask water, cleaning and descaling as instructions, the machine didn't last 18 months. A small component in capsule ejector failed. The mechanism has failed the design is such that repair is not economically...

Small benchtop footprint

Cost. Cheap construction with weak points which fail

Milk frother


Milk frother leaves burnt milk marks after each use and is now turning itself off ( due to overheating???) This seems to be a common problem from my research. Nespresso/Delonghi does not seem to take responsibilty for this. I've had my machine for...

Wow, what a life changing machine


Love this coffee maker and aerocchino makes a perfect cup of coffee, no more trips to the cafés , wonderful experience in the comfort of your own home. Trialling the different pods and so far nespresso pods wins with the kogan ones a close second!!...

Fast , safe and easy to use, reliably good cup of coffee

Great Coffee Machine - Frother not so good


I received the Nespresso U and Aeroccino 3 for christmas. So far I am very happy with the Nespresso U. It is easy to use and makes a nice cup of coffee. Very tidy to use, spent capsules are stored in the machine and can be thrown out once a day or when...

Easy to use, makes a very nice cup of coffee. Only takes up a small amount of room

The milk frother seems to have a design flaw and this takes away from an otherwise great machine

Amazing don't know how we lived without it


purchased for my husband last year. I dont know how he ever lived without it. so user friendly and follow up through Nespresso customer service is above and beyond, nothing is too hard. I do find that the aeroccino soes get one little burn patch...

convenient(no waiting for kettle to boil) compact user friendly

nespresso pods are not a readily available as i would like, aeroccino (milk frother) burns even with cleaning and care taken

Great Coffee


We previously had a Kogan Nespresso compatible machine and although happy with it never loved the Coffee it produced. After trying a few espresso's in the Nespresso store I decided to upgrade to one of these beauties and haven't looked back. Purchased...

Easy to operate & maintain. Makes good coffee

Frothy milk whisk is a little "dry". I only use the warm Milk whisk which is about Latte standard

Lengthy Warranty Repairs


We put our machine in for warranty repairs (Western Australian service agent) last week and have been told today that it may be another 10 days (15 altogether) before it might be ready as they have a backlog of jobs. Nespresso need to have more than...

Bargain, a Nespresso Coffee Machine @ $113!


Bought this coffee machine @ Bing Lee today for $163 and look forward to receiving my $50 cashback via redemption. Didn't think it possible to buy a Nespresso for $113! The salesperson told me that Nespresso asked Breville to manufacture an 'entry...

Compact size, can make mug sized coffees and ease of use

Haven't found anything I dislike yet

Great coffee and wide range of flavours


I bought it as birthday present for my sister and it is just amazing! It's compact and easy to use, plus you have a huge range of flavours you can choose from. The coffee capsules are quite expensive, but I asked a friend of mine, who went in Italy for...

Great choice of coffee flavours and easy to use

Expensive capsules

Great machine - need proper Nespresso capsules!


A great, easy to use machine once you get the cup size right. Lovely range of coffee capsules however they're rather expensive which can work out to annoying if you like lots of coffee. Mechanically works very well - have had no problems. I quite like...

Small, easy fits on a kitchen bench. The proper range of Nespresso pods are amazing with a really good range of flavours
