Small and almost perfectly formed. . I have tried so many of the coffee pod systems, and this one is the best by a mile. The coffees (from nespresso) are superb. Basically i have this coffee machine in my officei use filtered water as i think it makes a better coffee. The machine heats up fast and makes an amazingly good espressowith a thick a creamy crema layer. So if the coffee is amazing, and the system is amazing why only give 4 stars,you can’t fit a mug under the coffee outlet with the drop tray in place, espresso cups are fine, but, if you are using the milk brother and making a cappuccino then you need to make it into an espresso mug and decant it. A few mm greater height would have solved the problem. Otherwise this is such a good, small coffee maker.
I don’t no what i did without it. Proper crema, on top of your espresso, also aeroccino ,makes great cappuccino.

Have had other coffee machines before this is the best very compact stylish and makes super coffee.
So easy and such a good cuppa. . It’s small, easy to use and makes a good cuppa of coffee. Used a espresso maker that had to be heated on a hob before this. The hob maker was messy and not consistent in its coffee, probably me as much as the maker. This is small and of consistently good quality, use sainsburys pods with it and just love the result.
Best thing i have purchased in a long time – easy to use, good vlaue for money, neat and easy to clean – great latte. I moved to a very rural area from central london 8 years ago and the only thing that i miss about living in a city is the ease in which you can buy good take-away coffee. For 8 years having a good quality latte had become a rare thing indeed. I never imagined that there was anything that i could buy for home that could possibly compete with good barista coffee. Then i can across this and although it seemed a bit of a luxury and slightly expensive i thought i’d take a chance. I have been using this combination with starbucks pods and high quality whole milk every day for the last few months and it absolutely makes a lovely latte that means i no longer have to miss being able to buy one elsewhere. My husband uses it every morning to make an expresso and loves it too. It is very compact taking up hardly any room and looks neat. It is very quick to make the coffee, incredibly easy to us and very, very easy to clean.
