Great little machine

Has made consistently great coffee for almost 3 years - I have no complaints at all. I live in a motorhome so it’s perfect for me. The price I paid included a milk frother so I’m more than happy with my purchase. Show details

Leaking coffee problems after 12 good months

After 12 months of use with no problems, water and leaking coffee started to appear, dripping from somewhere in large quantities from underneath. I discovered after thoroughly cleaning it that the bottom plastic panel had buckled and was leaking profusely… Show details

Capsules not dropping into slot

We've had this machine since about Sept 2019 and my husband would make about 3 cups a week on average.
Recently he had trouble getting a pod to click into place and we even tried to do this manually but it either drops through to the tray or doesn't seem to pierce properly. The machine is now redundant and no doubt out of warranty. There's definitely a fault but for the price we paid for it, there's no point having it fixed. We have no idea how this happened/what the cause was. You'd be better spending more on a better quality machine from the start Show details

Upgraded from Cafiality System

Upgraded to this machine from my cafiality system due to wanting more variety with coffee pods.

Pros:
- looks good
- small size (doesn’t take too much real estate from the bench
- easy to use

Cons:
- very noisy (compared to the cafiality)
- needs just a few more mm space to fit a mug. Have to remove drip tray to fit the mug.
- Bit over-priced for what you get

Overall it’s a cute, easy to use machine which does the job. Apart from the very loud noise it makes and the high price, it would be almost perfect. Show details

Cheap and does the job

Never fails to make my morning coffee. The quality of the machine is good, havent had any issues so far. I have my coffee black and need it fast in the morning so it was so convenient. I also use pods from woolworths for 45c and they taste the same to me. Show details

Good quality product

I had this good coffee machine as a replacement from nespresso company because my previous coffee machine was insured and they took it for repair (I use to do videos,reviews for youtube). So they have provided me with this machine for around three weeks.
What I can say is this: very, very good quality coffee machine. It is capable of making a very good espresso. It is a basic machine but great quality for the price. If you like milky coffees this machine isn't for you. However if you like coffees like americano, espresso - yes! Go for this coffee machine.
Very easy to use and clean. Show details

Excellent machine, can't live without coffee!

Nespresso make quality machines. This is the second Nespresso machine I have purchased and it is a pleasure to use. Coffee is delicious and takes very minimal time to make. It is important to keep up with regular de-scaling and cleaning, but no other problems! Show details

Great little coffee machine

Very small machine that takes up minimal bench space. Perfect for a small apartment.
Quieter than other coffee machines requiring pods.
Came with a wide variety of pods to taste. The ones I have tasted were pretty good. Show details
