Really pleased, can make attractive consume, so effortless to use, drinks are very hot and milk frother quickly heats milk and makes a creamy froth.

Terrific compact coffee machine. The nespresso coffee machine is good as it is straightforward to use, brief and compact. It came perfectly packed so no fret of damage. The color on it is a dim gray so gives it an tasteful come to feel. Underneath has a rubbery experience so its not slipping away on the operate surface area in your kitchen area. Pretty straight forward to use, as you just will need to put some water in the container that will past you for about 8-ten coffees and on the other facet you can incorporate milk to have it performed in the identical time to help you save time. Then you just add the pod and press a button and is performed. When compared to other coffee machines, you just select if you want it expresso/ristretto design, quick or extended coffee to get the h2o amount you generally like obtaining alternatively of manually halting the h2o. The three buttons are adjustable as in you can change the quantity of water that is released on each a person of them. It also will come with a selection of sixteen pods from nespresso for you to check out your new machine so that is a reward.

So for the instant, ignore about the faffy bluetooth and other attributes like the simple fact the app has a counter and just counts down the capsules you use. The plan of being ready to established up a coffee for the early morning is no big thing both. The truly big point for me is anything that has pushed me nuts with every other nespresso coffee machine. Most of us will prop our nespresso machine up towards the wall in the kitchen area somewhere and for some cause they always put the h2o tank on the back. This 1 you can essentially rotate the water tank round to the facet and leave it there or in my situation angle it at forty five degree’s. Eventually you can incorporate water without having any trouble. The other exciting thing is when you set the machine up you can notify it about the water hardness in your region applying a few of screening strips. I assume for the good krupa brand title, as well as it is really my favourite coffee dispenser and definately no extra faff with the drinking water tank. The tiny drinking water tanks on these devices will push you nuts .Here are the specifications for the NESPRESSO by Krups Prodigio Coffee Capsule Machine:

  • First ever connected Nespresso machine
  • Manage capsule stock, brew remotely and schedule a brew, all from your phone
  • 19 Bar pressure
  • Heats up in 25 seconds
  • Automatic capsule ejection

Really pleased, can make attractive consume, so effortless to use, drinks are very hot and milk frother quickly heats milk and makes a creamy froth.

Wonderful machine whilst i am uncertain as to no matter whether the bluetooth connectivity is well worth acquiring. This arrived seeking quite clever in a slick black box with its individual carry take care of and was in the vicinity of sufficient prepared to use straight from the box (apart from rinsing out the containers). My initial snag was that i couldn’t find the application for my (android) cellphone in the play shop. I downloaded it on my ipad instead which was incredibly swift and effortless to come across. My next snag was that only just one of my mugs suits beneath – i experimented with utilizing it with no the drip tray (which is what we have to do with the machine at get the job done) but it did very little in any way. So, mug mounted, and drinking water topped up, i had my 1st nespresso using the manual options. Even though my mug is very brief, it can be fairly large, but even bearing that in brain i was pretty stunned to see that ‘lungo’ (which i think to bd substantial?. – the guidelines never specify) is even now much less than half a mug entire. Subsequent, i tried using the application – it paired promptly and was quite simple to use. I am impressedunfortunately the machine does only maintain a single capsule so you will still have to have to go to the machine to insert the capsule and check your mug.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Best Nespresso Machine Ever
  • no wasted capsules to date which happened on previous machine sometimes
  • Simple great tasting coffee

A good machine but not truly worth the more expense. I have had a pixie for decades but it formulated a leak and required replacing immediately after giving fantastic assistance. This is the most recent machine from nespresso/krups and the 1st linked machine so is it value £110 much more than a new pixie?it is fashionable seeking but there is actually significantly less clearance beneath the spout without the need of increasing the tray. Our coffee cups just squeeze underneath whereas there was ample space beneath the pixie. What is an advancement is that the drinking water tank rotates and can be positioned to the rear or to the facet making filling a lot easier. The cartridge bin is bigger and so desires emptying a lot less typically but staying hidden inside the machine has a very little orange light-weight on the rear to warn you when its comprehensive in scenario the reality that it will not likely do the job won’t give you a clue. The prodigio has three configurations so you can make a ristretto as well as an espresso and a lungo. You switch it on by sliding open the capsule slot. Insert a capsule, shut the slot and press the illuminated button for the coffee sizing you want. The prodigio pierces the capsule electrically and also ejects it whilst the pixie has to do this manually.

Very good nespresso machine but the app is fairly ineffective and you’re spending for the characteristic. I’ve employed a few `pod’ dependent coffee/very hot drink equipment like those utilizing dolce gusto powder capsules and tassimo powder/liquid pods. I also have an insanely high-priced jura bean to cup machine that makes use of coffee beans. In my look at nespresso receives closest to the flavor of a freshly-floor coffee. This is mainly because nespresso keeps matters relatively very simple. They only make coffee pods whilst dolce gusto and tassimo try, and i use the expression deliberately, to give a variety of beverages which includes tea and incredibly hot chocolate. Most significantly while nespresso devices commonly aim to generate black coffee – espressos or lungos. The other models tries to use dried or uht milk normally consequence in an unsatisfactory drink. With this nespresso model manufactured by krups if you want a cappuccino or latte the machine works by using fresh new milk and it results in really very good black coffee, and pretty good milk-primarily based coffee. The machine will make 3 pre-programmed beverages each individual with its have lit button – ristretto, expresso and lungo.

Great compact coffee machine. The nespresso coffee machine is great as it is easy to use, quick and compact. It came well packed so no worry of damage. The colour on it is a dark grey so gives it an elegant feel. Underneath has a rubbery feel so its not slipping away on the work surface in your kitchen. Very straight forward to use, as you just need to put some water in the container that will last you for about 8-10 coffees and on the other side you can add milk to have it done in the same time to save time. Then you just add the pod and press a button and is done. Compared to other coffee machines, you just select if you want it expresso/ristretto style, short or long coffee to get the water quantity you normally like having instead of manually stopping the water. The 3 buttons are adjustable as in you can change the quantity of water that is released on each one of them. It also comes with a selection of 16 pods from nespresso for you to try your new machine so that is a bonus.

Excellent nespresso machine. This is a great wee machine. Wasn’t 100% sold on some parts that looks a wee bit plasticky, but it’s grown on me. I had an older nespresso that worked well, but this seems a bit of a step up. The mechanism for piercing the capsule was easy enough before, but this is even more straightforward – capsules just drops in and is pierced electronically. The machine heats up very quickly, and makes the coffee very quickly, and tastes great. The app thing works well, but is clearly a gimmick. Given you’d have to line everything up beforehand, and the machine is so quick from cold anyway, not really where the value in it is. The aerocinno is excellent, and does a great job with the milk, and well worth the extra money.

I’ve used nespresso for the last 10 years and had a few different machines over that time. I won’t talk about the nespresso coffee itself, other than to say it’s excellent. This machine does look nice, quite posh with the matt titanium finish, and it seems to be good quality, as i’ve found with all nespresso machines, both krups and magimix that i’ve owned before. All my previous machines have been manual pod loading, which i personally prefer. This machine has a little slide hatch on the top which you just drop the pod into and the machine takes care of the rest, which i’m sure many people will like. There are three measure buttons on the top, ristretto 25ml, espresso 40ml and lungo 125ml. The only difference being the amount of water used, which you match to the coffee type you have chosen, and is marked on the box for each coffee. You get a selection of 16 coffee pods with this machine. I don’t really see the point of the aeroccino add on, it makes enough milk for one cup realistically, has to be cleaned after use and just seems like a lot of effort for a bit of warm milk.

This is a simple to use coffee machine with hot milk attachment that ensures you can conjure up a perfect espresso, cappuccino or long, black coffee time after time, just the way you like it. The coffee machine is good although i remain unconvinced about the merits of the app. • set upeasy to follow instructions are not really needed as it is very intuitive. Follow them for the first time as they alert to things like rinsing three times before first use but you won’t need them afterwards (tuck them away in a drawer to pull out when you need to descale the appliance). • in the boxyou get a starter set of 16 coffee capsules so you can taste a lot of the nespresso range and form an idea of what you like before you place your first capsule order. Note that if you register your coffee machine on the nespresso site that you can order capsules with the added bonus of a gift with your first or second order (you have to wait about 48 hours for an activation code, so register as soon as you can after receipt). It would have been nice to have a single sample of descaling solution but you can order this with your first capsule order. • in useit doesn’t use up a lot of worktop space and the automated ejection of used capsules is a useful option. I tend to have cappuccino most of the time and so the app has been of limited use as i don’t like leaving milk out of the fridge.

First, as word on nespresso generally: if you haven’t tried it before, the nespresso system is superb; it is by far and away the best coffee pod system out there. I’ve owned manual espresso machines in the past, for which i used to grind my own beans, but i now prefer the convenience and consistency of nespresso. It may not be quite as good as a well made manual espresso, but it comes pretty close and is a lot less effort. At their core, all nespresso machines are exactly the same, and brew coffee identically. They are differentiated by secondary aspects such as the look and feel, the water tank, the buttons, the drip tray, the waste container, the presence or absence of a milk frother, and now bluetooth. I find the last of these, which this machine has, a complete gimmick. The ability to brew a coffee remotely, when it only takes a few seconds in person, is utterly pointless. But if you like your gadgets, this is definitely the machine for you. In other respects, this is a fairly smart-looking machine, albeit a bit plasticky.

After an evening of making cappacinos and espressos i can thouroughly recommend this nespresso machine. Every cup was met with high praise, and the coffee is much better than the dolce gusto i was using previously. The machine seems a bit complex at first glance, but its actually fairly quick and easy to get going. The three cup sizes suit most small coffee cups (it wont work with larger mugs) and the addition of the milk frother give you more options. The milk frother can both heat and cool down milk and produces a nice thick foam for the top of drinks. The cappacinos went down very well. The big selling point for this machine is the ability to use fresh and not uht milk. That really makes a big difference for lattes and cappacinos. Dolce gusto’s sweetened, milk powder versions just pale in comparrison.

Boxed======it arrives beautifully packaged. Really beautifully packaged. Reluctant==========i’ve had coffee machines before and am a reluctant nespresso fan. I’ve tended to prefer the bean to cup coffee makers so i have to admit that i had a little prejudice against the machine before we started. It’s hard to make a decision on buying a particular nespresso machine as there are loads of them. What’ s good============for me this ticks lots of boxes:the brandthe designthe small kitchen footprintthe smart featurestracking the capsules on the appexcellent coffee with nice cremanot so good============i’m not convinced on using bluetooth for making myself a cup of coffee in the morning. The bluetooth won’t reach the kitchen from my phone in the bedroom. And i’m happy to go to the kitchen and press the button on the machine.

Simple great tasting coffee. ** update 23 nov 2016 – love the machine so much we bought our parents one, the non connected version. **we are big coffee drinkers and have used our gaggia brera to virtual destruction. We were interested in the krups nespresso prodigio to use when we wanted it a bit more simple and foolproof. The prodigio was extremely easy to set up. While i did have a play with the techy functions i will never use them – i can see them being more hassle than they are worth. As with all nespresso machines it is a simple case of popping in a capsule (you will have you views around waste) and get a coffee. I am pleasantly pleased with the taste, with a taste test it was impossible to tell them apart. I have to say i do like the theatre of grinding beans but the nespresso just makes it easy.

Great machine although i’m doubtful as to whether the bluetooth connectivity is worth having. This arrived looking very smart in a slick black box with its own carry handle and was near enough ready to use straight from the box (apart from rinsing out the containers). My first snag was that i couldn’t find the app for my (android) phone in the play store. I downloaded it on my ipad instead which was very quick and easy to find. My second snag was that only one of my mugs fits underneath – i tried using it without the drip tray (which is what we have to do with the machine at work) but it did nothing whatsoever. So, mug installed, and water topped up, i had my first nespresso using the manual settings. Although my mug is quite short, it’s pretty wide, but even bearing that in mind i was quite surprised to see that “lungo” (which i assume to bd large?. – the instructions don’t specify) is still less than half a mug full. Next, i tried the app – it paired quickly and was very simple to use. I am impressedunfortunately the machine does only hold one capsule so you will still need to go to the machine to insert the capsule and check your mug.
