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.

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

Fast and convenient

I am so glad I purchased this coffee machine. It works so fast and makes a decent cup of coffee. The machine itself doesn't take up too much bench space, its actually quite compact. This machine came with the milk frother (aerrochino) so that was super helpful and complimentary to have with this machine. 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. Once I'm done with the pods I will scoop out the coffee grounds to compost/repurpose and recycle the aluminium. You can collect the used pods and return them to a Nespresso store for recycling. Show details

Easy and affordable

I got the nespresso coffee machine for my partner for our anniversary. I am not a coffee snob but have found the taste and quality comparable to any coffee i get from a cafe. Easy to use and virtually no cleaning required. Generic brand pods are no worse than the official branded ones Show details

Great coffee machine for its price

Very reasonably priced small compact simple and makes a nice brew' can be a little noisy 1st thing in the morning though but.....meh, plenty of pod flavors to choose from and quick heating time but the tank is a little on the small side ( i seem to run out pretty quick :-D do love a good coffee is prob why ) and when you open the refilling lid the tank tends to slip out of it's mount...... not a big problem doesn't leak or anything just something i noticed" Overall not a bad machine deff 8/10 for it's price n practability. Show details

Great Coffee Machine

I was always hesitant in buying a Nespresso machine because I thought the coffee wouldn't be that great. After spending over $100 a month on take-way coffee, I decided to get one of these for my office at work. Love it! The machine will have paid for itself after a month and a bit, plus the coffee pods are cheap enough if you get them via Nespresso. There are also Nespresso compatible pods in the supermarket that are a little cheaper, but I don't know what they're like.

Overall, very happy with my purchase of this little machine (even more so because I got it on sale at JB Hifi). Show details

Great little coffee machine with only a couple of small issues

It's a coffee machine - it dispenses a small or large amount of coffee and the amount has been good and not watered down. Takes normal Nespresso coffee pods, so there is a lot of variants and brands that can be used.

cons would be - a little noisy, but not excessively. It does continue to dribble when finished. Have to remove bottom.. plate? to fit any larger cups under. Obviously being a mini, it doesn't hold many used pods.. and several times I have had it completely stuck! It was like playing the board game operations to try and get the last coffee pod of through the top so I can remove the container. Show details

Problems with putting the pod in. It doesn't go straight in so we have to hold the pod when we push the lever down. Does anyone know what the problem would be? The machine is only 1 week old.
