Best Hot Chocolate
I know you're meant to like coffee to get a machine, but I'm a hot chocolate freak, and this machine makes a great hot chocolate. Easy to use, pods are recyclable and makes a good coffee too.
Had this for a month and have rarely used it, the first couple of weeks the milk frothed lovely, now it is only making flat whites. Have tried different milks and set my fridge to 3 degrees and soaker milk components a few times, still only making flat whites. Disappointed as I only purchased it for cappuccinos. Will be taking it back if it doesn't improve. Would not recommend.
Our Second Delonghi Nespresso Machine
The first one of our Delonghi Nespresso Latissama still going strong after a good few years.
That one has gone to our guests accommodation.
This new one is so improved, much easier to clean without the ridges & the parts are machine washable.
The brown colour actually matches our kitchen perfectly.
Got it on sale at The Good Guys. Cool!
Used daily prob 6 times LOL
Purchased in September 2019 for $225.00.
What an easy money saver!
I received my machine for my birthday just a few months after having a baby. This machine has saved so much time, effort and money. Especially in a sleep deprived state. The quality of the coffee is just as good as a coffee from a cafe. Sure it’s not the same but it’s as close as it gets for an at home instant machine. I love how quickly it heats up and how compact it is to fit in the corner of my kitchen bench. It’s easy to clean and put together. The only down side is it only makes one coffee at a time where my previous Nespresso machine used...to do a couple of coffees before having to fill up the milk dispenser. I would highly recommend it as it has saved us money as opposed to buying coffee every day. A sleeve of pods for us is around $7 and you get 10 pods I believe. A regular coffee is approx. $5 so you’re making back your money in a short amount of time.
Disappointed with this latest machine.
This is my third Nespresso DeLonghi machine and I’m struggling to find any good points about it. I’ve owned it for 4 months and it has already failed and had to be taken away for repair after the first descale. Since repair the pump is now really loud when frothing milk. The milk frother intermittently stops pumping out milk midway through the cycle and is sometimes not very frothy at all, or makes the milk so hot (after spluttering all over the place) that I’ve burnt my mouth. Cleaning of the milk jug is convoluted having to break it down into...5 pieces and cleaning each part after every coffee. This becomes totally cumbersome when having more than one coffee a day which I do. Searching for positives, I love the look of this machine and how compact it is.
Sleek looking but disappointed with performance
Milk frother over squirt the milk out of the tub, missing the mug and ended with milk everywhere. No option to reduce the amount of froth (too much in our liking) this no option to make flat white with little froth. So you can’t just heat the milk it will come out half froth and half coffee.
The coffee extraction is not as good as the U Milk machine. Water tank is too narrow, making filling up difficult.
The opening for the coffee pod is not like the UMilk where it’s a slide to open but instead, it’s a lift to open which after awhile, moved ...the machine out of it position. Coffee pods does not automatically drop to the dispense container. This needs to be manually done. Occasionally, we forget to and thus ended up extracting twice from the used pod. Cleaning of the milk canister is not as simple and quick. A lot of parts to clean each time after use.
