I love coffee. I have always loved coffee and now I love nespresso. For far too long I have had to greet the morning with a cup of coffee and before this machine came along I didn't mind using instant coffee with the occasional filter coffee if I had the time. Though now I have had this handy little thing on my kitchen top for a year now and have begun feeling rather smug in how I can distinguish the taste between each coffee capsule. My taste buds are rather stubborn when it comes to coffee now as I have completely fallen for nespresso.
Bought for the family by my equally coffee loving uncle, the nespresso machine has been with us for a year and has never failed to disappoint. It's easy enough to learn how to use though have had my fair share of accidents with it when guests decide to have a go. There is a tub attached the back to be filled with water where it then gets sucked into the machine and pushed through the capsules placed underneath the silver lever at the top. There is no need to boil water as it is heated as it pours. This is a huge time saver for those who usually mess around with French press coffee makers or filters. Once the button is pressed it usually takes around a minute for the cup to be filled. When adding a new capsule the lever can be pulled up where the old one will fall into a container at the bottom to be emptied when needed.
This coffee maker is a very attractive addition to our kitchen as it looks very modern. Though it may be rather large for smaller kitchen, a coffee lover surely wouldn't mind this sacrifice of space.
Enough of the bragging now. There are some problems that I cant hide. Where the coffee pours out is quite low so this does mean that using regular mugs can be tricky and will probably have to be held just in case of overflows or falling off. Im much more of an Americano fan so tend to have this problem when running out of wider cups. Its quite a loud machine and does sometimes have its days where it doesn't want to start straight away though these are rare. The capsules tend to have to be ordered which is a nuisance and aren't very cheaper either!
But despite its problems, my mornings would feel empty without it. I would recommend this to any coffee lover. You wont regret it!
