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.
Purchased in July 2020 at The Good Guys for $195.00.
I bought this machine (with frother) a couple of weeks before Christmas. Had another cheaper machines before this but wasn't very impressed. This one I love, small enough to take away in the caravan, and when not in use, store in a kitchen drawer. Great coffee. The temperature is just right. I mainly use for a long shot. I don't use the drip tray as the clearance is not enough for an average cup, but if I have to sacrifice that for a very compact machine, I don't really mind. Love, love this machine.
Purchased in November 2018 at Peter's of Kensington Online store for $169.00.
No more café prices for me!
Makes a great cup of coffee comparable to any coffee shop.
2 Programmable sizes or choose a different amount per serve.
The frother can either heat, heat and froth, or just froth (cold milk) so it's great for hot or iced chocolate or coffee. Comes with a selection of 20 Nespresso coffee pods.
Doesn't take up much counter space.
Purchased in July 2019 for $111.00.
Simple and easy to use.
Owned it for a few days. It's produced okay coffee. It is simple to set-up and is simple to use.
One observation is that there is insufficient clearance between the drip tray and the dispenser.
In order to use it - I remove the drip tray and place my mug on the bench.
Other than that - it's great.
Bought it on a promotion which made it under $100 which is a good price point. If it cost anything more, the value proposition wouldn't be realistic - given it's functionality.
I have had this coffee machine for 6 months now and don't know how I got through without it! The coffee (generally using the short shot) tastes great. Although I have my favourite varieties, all so far are good. The temperature of the coffee is just right and drinkable straight away.
Ideal Machine For Anyone
I have this fantastic machine which we use every where we go. We love Nespresso coffee and being able to carry on this little machine makes the most wonderful item for our trips. Both, machine and milk frother are easy to use and simple to clean. Highly recommend machine if you are traveller (best local trip as we haven't use this machine overseas). We haven't had any issue with the machine since purchased.
Wonderful for a small appliance!
Can't believe how well this very small coffee maker makes fantastic coffee dispite the mini size of the appliance. The Captuals are easy to fit in the machine and come in a wide range of types. Very easy to use simply plug in put in the Captuals and away you go then you get a great drink at the end
This has been a brilliant machine from my office and is well hidden in a cupboard for my instant pleasure. My colleagues and clients have no idea what I'm up to although the machine does make a very loud noise when there is no other sound around. I also have a milk froth are which does and is also in the cupboard with the machine. The only issue I have is that Machine doesn't hold much water. Otherwise it is incredibly easy to use
Easy to use
Taste of coffee is great. It's so easy to use. I even get the nespresso compatible hot chocolate pods and even the kids can do it themselves. We use it everyday at least 3-4 times. Cleaning it is also very easy just run it under the tap and it's good as new
We had a lattisima machine as a hand me down when it broke we bought this as a replacement. While I like that one, this Essenza is way better as it only uses less space on our kitchen bench. Absolutely love the milk frother that comes with it. It'll save me a ton of money as compared to the pricey coffee shops and it's very easy to clean.
Beautiful machine and tasty coffee
Brought the Essenza Mini with the milk frother from Retravision. It is a very handy machine and fits neatly on a small kitchen bench. We love the design and it is very easy to use. The coffee is smooth and tasty with a wide selection to choose from. Very happy with the purchase.
My own in house barista
Loved the compact size of the machine. Easy to be kept and doesn't take a lot of space. Easy to operate and coffee tastes great. The Aeroccino 3 add another level of taste to the coffee, making it taste as good as coffee made by barista. A great way to save money on coffee in the long run.
Great little machine nice and small very easy to use no confusion with how to operate
Coffee tastes great from it
I did have A bigger machine previously and needed a new one at a good price only thing is takes little but longer to make a coffee but in saying that still a great little machine
Thought once upon a time that the only way to have your coffee was from your traditional coffee machine but then we discovered the pods and have never looked back. I mean they are easier and quicker to use which is great when in a rush to leave for work. Most importantly the coffee is just as good, if not better as it is more consistent. Being easy also extends to the maintenance which is minimal apart from putting in a solution to descale every 6 to 12 months for this machine.
This machine produces the perfect coffee every time. What is als...o great about Nespresso machines is that you have so much choice in coffee which includes your local supermarket. We love our Lungo coffee and just add the preheated milk first then the coffee. It is that easy for the perfect cup. Finally as the consultant at Nespresso said, all the machines from the cheapest to the most expensive will produce the exact same coffee. So, this machine being so small and looking stylish is great as it fits nicely in our kitchen. Build quality appears good so think it will be with us for a long time.. PS. it came with a frother which works well but we prefer our coffee without frothing the milk but it is still a good addition in case friends drop by.
I love it!
I love this coffee machine! I wake up every morning feeling tired and this machine just makes getting a coffee so quick and cheap. I recommend this coffee machine to anyone looking for a quick way to get some caffeine. I love it & it has made my life so much better!
Questions & Answers
Sustainability is important, can this model be used with a refillable pod?
Hi Catherine good question but I have no idea. Suggest you contact Nespresso or use google for a possible answer. If the answer is yes it would apply to just about all their machines as they use the same pods.
Nespresso pods are finely calibrated so you can't refill them. But unlike other brands, Nespresso pods are recyclable at all Nespresso emporiums and at a range of florists. All of the metal is reprocessed and the grounds are used for fertiliser.
You can also buy degradable pods that fit Nespresso machines. Urban Brew have them
