Product Description

The art of espresso by Nespresso

More than 20 years ago, Nespresso developed and patented an exclusive system for mastering the preparation of the perfect espresso, from the selection of the finest green coffee beans through to the moment of tasting. The perfect espresso is a complex alchemy between coffee of exceptional quality and freshness, and water at high pressure. It is these elements which give the coffee body and intensity, and reveal all the subtleties of the aroma. Coffee, machine and the club are the inseparable components of the exclusive Nespresso experience, which allows you to prepare a perfect espresso, cup after cup, time after time, in the comfort of your own home.

The machine

All Nespresso machines are equipped with a patented extraction system that guarantees up to 19 bar pressure. Each element - water pressure, temperature and extraction duration - has been calculated with great precision. This ensures the aromas from each Grand Cru coffee are expressed, giving the coffee body and creating an exceptionally thick and smooth crema.

The Nespresso U by Krups is the ultimate in innovation and style. Featuring an adjustable 0.7L water tank and cup support the U will fit to your available space.

The U has automatic and programmable water sizing and with a fast heat up of 25 seconds, you will not have to wait long to enjoy your Grand Cru coffee. The Nespresso U also boasts automatic piercing, brewing and ejection of the capsule ensuring ease of use. The U also has an anti-drip function to ensure that you spend less time cleaning up and more time enjoying your coffee.

The Nespresso U also features an Automatic Shut Off after 9 minutes and is stylish in the premium Matt Red finish.

The coffee

The hermetically-sealed aluminium capsules provide the optimum conditions to preserve and prevent oxidation of the 900 extremely volatile and sensitive aromas found in freshly-ground coffee. Simple in appearance, the capsule is the subject of continual technical improvement to optimise the machine’s extraction of the coffee.

Nespresso offers 16 Grand Cru coffee varieties, some of the finest in the world. Products of Nespresso Coffee Experts’ experience and inspiration, they come from diverse origins and offer a variety of aromas.

To achieve the perfect espresso, Nespresso Coffee Experts travel the world searching for only the finest green coffee beans, which offer the most exciting aromatic profiles. Nespresso then creates a blend from each of the varieties of beans, and develops a specific roasting and grinding profile.

The club

When you buy a Nespresso machine, you become a member of the exclusive Nespresso Club for connoisseurs, where you order your Grand Cru capsules. The club offers you numerous privileges, including personalised contacts with Nespresso and its Coffee Specialists, who understand and appreciate the secrets of coffee.

The club combines exclusive benefits and the expert knowledge and advice of the Specialists with practical services to assist you.

Whether you contact the Coffee Specialists by phone, or in one of Nespresso's boutiques, they can answer all of your questions.

The Assistance Service is exclusive to the Nespresso Club.

Each machine is covered by a 3 year manufacturer’s warranty. if your machine requires repair during the period of its guarantee, Nespresso will provide you with a loan machine, subject to availability.

The Nespresso commitment to sustainability

Nespresso has a recycling initiative for its capsules as part of a program called Ecolaboration™. The Nespresso Ecolaboration™ program sets out the company's commitment to sustainable development and enables it to make improvements and create initiatives across all its activities.

This is my 2nd Nespresso machine, after having a Citiz (which is excellent). The 'U' is a brilliant Nespresso machine. The 3 programmable volume buttons are a nice advantage and I like that they're touch sensitive. The automatic capsule ejection a nice addition, along with the black capsule box/drip tray which obviously don't stain like the clear ones in the Citiz.

Excellent machine and a good price!

Having owned a Dolce Gusto I was getting a little tired of its bland espresso, is a very light roas, not much complexity or body to it. I had heard about Nespresso machines before this, I had planned on buying the Pixie but when I seen this had just been released, fully automatic, all three cup sizes I was sold.

The coffee is excellent quality, much better than a chain coffee shop by far. I personally like Arpeggio the best it's quite a dark roast but with a lovely creama. If you like something a little lighter there are 16 to choose from, this doesn't include their season special! I have so far tried the Hawaii Kona and Crealto specials and both have been excellent. You really do get the simplicity of a pod machine but the quality of home ground coffee without having to worry about the freshness and choice of beans and whether you got the ground just right, being capsule there is absolutely no mess either.

The experience of owning a Nespresso is an experience to say that. You become a member of the Nespresso Club. You get emails telling you about the background the the coffee, offers as well as the amazing customer service. Only the other day they called to tell me that my warranty had been extended from 2 to 3 years and that if it breaks I will get a free loan machine while it is away getting fixed. Service really is one way of putting it. The packaging and presentation of everything they supply is superb.

I recently got the Aeroccino 3, it's a great addition to the set. Unlike the Dolce Gusto you're free to use whichever milk you like instead of their dried and sweetened pods of milk.

I already have a Magimix M100 Auto, which I am pleased with.

I purchased the new U machine in Japan,as the voltage there is 100 volts.The U machine is more compact compared to the M100, the water tank also swivels to reduce the depth of the machine.The drip tray is removable to enable a larger cup/glass to be filled.The drip tray is held in place by a magnet,which means it can be moved to the side and attached to the (either)side magnet.

The auto function means you just drop the capsule into the slot and close it, the most used setting is remembered, the coffee just flows. The capsule is then automatically ejected into the holding tank.

A great machine, more compact and easier to use than the Magimix.

This is a fantastic piece of kit and the whole Nespresso "experience" is superb. The machine is easy to install and easy to maintain. I've always wanted to enjoy good coffee at home but have never had the patience to achieve this. It's true that the capsules/pods are quite expensive (get them online from Nespresso for best deals) but you're paying for the convenience. It's as a simple as loading a capsule in and waiting for a fantastic espresso (40 ml). There's an added ristretto feature (25 ml) with this model which widens the choice, as well as the usual lungo option (110 ml). You can buy the Nespresso U model with an Aeroccino included (the Aeroccino froths milk for cappuccinos and lattes) but the Aerocino can be purchased directly from Nespresso at a later date. All in all: excellent coffee, excellent price, excellent experience.

UPDATE: I've written that the pods are quite expensive but, after a bit of research, I'm not sure that they are. If you were to buy good coffee beans, take into account wastage etc., I reckon that the Nespresso pods are pretty good value for money. Let's be honest, 30p a shot for really good espresso represents value for money.

It is a fully automatic Nespresso coffee machine. There are 3 buttons on top of the machine allow you to select small, medium or large cup of espresso. Unlike other models, locking and unlocking of the coffee pot is fully automatic. If you have a bigger cup and like to squeeze a little more out from the pot, go for a non automatic model. This machine would unlock the pot automatically after the selected size of espresso was dispensed.

I very rarely write reviews but this machine deserves real praise. If you love that certain espresso taste that seems impossible to find outside of Italy or the very best Italian restaurant, then stop searching; this machine will provide it. What's really good - and not to be found on other espresso machines - is a set of three buttons allowing you to select cup size. This means that you can obviously select strength of taste. Added to that is the really good crema the machine creates.

I'm not a coffee drinker but my husband loves the stuff.
My personal pet hate is cleaning out the grinds from the caffetiere; a vile job which always seems to fall to me so with Christmas approaching I thought it an ideal time to do something about it.
I bought the Nespresso U with Aeroccino 3 milk warmer/frother as whatever I bought had to be good at making coffee, easy to use (or my ludite husband wouldn't use it) and easy to clean. Going by the reviews, this seemed to hit the target and I wasn't disappointed.

Worked straight out of the box with no faffing around. It comes with a selection of available pods but I also took a gamble and ordered some of what I thought he would like best, (he prefers the lungo coffees so I ordered more of these from the Nespresso Club so he would have plenty to get on with over Christmas and they arrived in a couple of days). Really simple with three sizes of coffee (the guide tells you which pods work best with which amount of water), the pods drop in and 30secs later you have a coffee.

If you haven't used one before it might seem a bit loud but friends with similar pod to cup machines assure me it's actually very quiet. Cleaning is simple - the pods and drips fall into a stacked tray which pull out easily and a quick wash later they are ready for use again (probably needs done every 10 coffess though it's so easy I tend to do it each day). Other nice touches are the water reservoir which can swivel from one side to the other depending on which lay out is best for your kitchen and the fact it remembers the most popular coffee size from the last 11 which means you don't even have to remember to select that when you turn on.
