Absolute rubbish - avoid DeLonghi and Nespresso products

Machine was not great from day one, very weak and small coffee. But then it stopped working and the customer service is terrible. Not able to return to the store I purchased it from, had to spend an hour on the phone to someone trying to troubleshoot it only to then get me the customer to box it up and post it back to them. I buy from shops rather than online to prevent issues like this. Much easier just to walk in and get a replacement or refund. If only bunnings did coffee machines, they know customer service. DeLonghi Nespresso couldn't care less, so I will never use their products again. Show details

Disappointing

I have had this machine 18 months and no longer use it as the coffee is only lukewarm and has to be finished in the microwave to get it to an acceptable level. I don't require extremely hot coffee but the tepid temperature is very disappointing. It had been cleaned and descaled frequently to no avail. I would not recommend. Show details

I keep telling you at Product Review that my coffee machine is a BREVILLE Nespresso, NOT a Delonghi. If you can't amend the name please delete this review.

like the machine suit purpose but keep breaking down

The machine is the right size does the job this is our second machine as first we had for many years with no troubles so when it broke down we brought another one .
If the machine runs out of water there’s a mighty production to get working again you need to closing and open machine could take up to 2- 3 hours and told me this is normal and wouldn’t fix or look at it
We had other coffee machine that we didn’t have to do this
i think what am saying for the price of the capusures and the price of the machine and more inportantly the lack of after care service
i belive there may be a better machine out there .
Disappointed to write review this review as we like this machine just nobody seem want help.

Terribly weak coffee and poor customer service

Tried the nespresso original pods in our new Essenza Mini Solo and they were so weak it tasted only of milk. Tried Vittoria pods too but they were the same.

We purchased at The Good Guys but they explained their policy was not to exchange or refund on change of mind - though I'm not sure how I would have known how strong the coffee is without trying it. And certainly wouldn't imagine I would have been expected and/or able to try it with COVID so rampant.

I then called Nespresso who said only if it's faulty will they change it for the same machine. I offered to upgrade, pay more etc but the lady just repeated herself verbadim 3 times before the conversation seemed truly pointless.

Leave it

There is no problem with the machine. Go down to your local supermarket and there are dozens of coffee pod manufacturers. An array of coffees and strengths. But guess what, none of them fit into this machine. Try finding mini coffee pods. Good luck. My fault for not doing my research but just giving others the heads up. This is why I have given value for money only a one. Show details

Powerful mini coffee machine

Got this for my birthday , it was a replacement for my previously owned Delonghi Icona pump coffee machine. I wanted this coffee machine because i want ease of making coffee in the morning. Therefore i opted for pods coffee machine. It only took 3 mins to heat up the machine, the coffee quality is excellent considering it is such a small machine. I like that it doesnt take up much of my kitchen space.  Show details

Reliable, easy to use, decent coffee and quick!

This machine does the trick. We've had ours for about 7 months and its' a good companion for on-the-go professionals needing a quick pick-me-up in the morning. The Nespresso coffee capsules are lovely and the machine never fails to deliver a nice cuppa with it's adjacent frother.
Only thing we've noted with this being our second Nespresso machine is that they do become significantly louder as time goes by which is a mystery despite regularly descaling and care.  Show details

Perfect coffee machine!

I have been using this coffee machine for more than a year now. Good size even to take for a trip. Love to get up in the morning to have this coffee. Every guests who tasted this coffee has either bought it for their home or asked for more. It’s a perfect chic to sit in the kitchen bench top corner to style your kitchen as well! Yet another best product by Nespresso! Show details

Great coffee maker

This is a great little coffee maker, maybe even a tiny bit small if you drink lots. The footprint is small enough to hide anywhere and the pod catcher is designed to drain the excess water out before storing used pods for disposal. Show details

Perfect for us coffee lovers

I really enjoy this mini coffee machine. Easy to use and clean and is small and compact that it sits tucked away on the kitchen bench not standing out like an eye sore or taking up too much space. The price point is fantastic if your looking for an affordable, low maintenance machine. The only thing I had to buy separately was a milk frother as we prefer cappuccino style coffee opposed to black, however not a necessity if you wanted to heat milk up in the microwave. Would highly recommend. Show details

Morning necessity

Purchase the mini after our last coffee maker retired itself.

We had heard some hype around Nespresso and decided to purchase one.

Thankfully we purchased at a special deal where a number of free capsules were provided on redemption - excellent. The free glasses and coffee mug where also appreciated and now greatly used.

The coffee is quality and we love that we can send the capsules back to be recycled.

Ordering is a breeze and super fast. We live in a regional area and the last delivery was ordered on a Sunday and delivered the Tuesday afternoon - totally blown away.

The only con, is that the milk frother is very slow. Show details

According to Mr Google "Starbucks® espresso capsules work with all normal Nespresso machines that you would buy for home use".

Sorry Colin, mine is a Breville Nespresso Essenza Mini. I wrote a review on this but somehow it was changed to Delongi.

What reviewers liked most about the DeLonghi Nespresso Essenza Mini:

  • The Essenza Mini’s minimalist design made it a shoo-in for kitchens with limited benchtop space, while the lightweight design meant it could easily be moved to different rooms in the home and office. Some reviewers bought an Essenza Mini for their caravan, and one even took it on holidays with them to substitute for the sachet coffee in hotels.
  • The ability to produce a consistently good, café-quality cup of coffee was lauded by reviewers
  • Easy to use, with the convenient bonus that the Essenza Mini works really fast. One reviewer attested to this, saying, ‘It takes less than 4 minutes to make a coffee, which is great for those busy mornings when you need to get out the door.'
