4.0 out of 5 stars Edited: I was falsely optimistic about this model...just as short lived as the rest, 20 Feb. 2010
I had the former model for a couple of years and it began to leak from the bottom after about 18 months. It was also very difficult to clean and had hard to get at areas that collected milk residues that dried and turned to hard cheese.
I've had a new Circulo machine for over a month. It makes slightly frothier coffee than the old shape machine and has none of the cleaning problems.....indeed milk doesn't escape up into the machine at all.
It's too early to say whether the machine leaks or not....it's only been available for a few weeks but I'm told (and am prepared to believe) that the problems of the original model have been cured by the redesign.
I'm puzzled by the reviewer who claims to be on his/her fourth machine.....this model had been around for such at a short time when that review was written....I wonder whether the review should be against the former, often known to leak, model.
I would give five stars if it weren't for the high cost of the pods, the impossibility of buying in bulk at a lower price, lack of discounts and the ungenerous loyalty scheme. You have to buy 14 boxes of pods to get a free one from dolce gusto and then you have to pay for the postage (more than the cost of one box!)
Edited (13/04/2011)to add: the pods continue to escalate in price, still no way of getting quantity discounts and NOW the loyalty scheme is being phased out...
Edited 28/05/2011 to add: Well it's bitten the dust, I'm afraid. First, at about a year old, it became exceedingly difficult to get the pod drawer in and out, nor was the reason apparent as we kept the machine washed and descaled. It also became exceedingly difficult to get the lever down to pierce the pod. Now the machinery has become detached internally.....so, though it's only 16 months old, it will be going to the tip and I shall be getting a Gaggia.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book, 8 Dec. 2009
I couldn't disagree more with the previous reviewer. I am one of the first people to be put off by dry books crammed with figures statistics.
This is a highly readable study by a professional historian of German descent of 1945....the last months of the war in Germany and the first months of the allied occupation and the process of rebuilding a modern state out of the ruins.
Figures are used with skill to portray the apocalyptic scale of the problem and the extent of the destruction and dislocation.
Eg 450,000 German soldiers were killed in January 1945 (more by a considerable margin than the military losses of the western allies throughout the whole war).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great machine, great coffee but unsweetened milk needed, 12 July 2007
I was given this machine a few days ago and, as a bit of a coffee snob, was prepared not to like coffee made from "pods".
I was pleasantly surprised. It's fun to use and makes a very decent espresso. My only gripe is that I gave up drinking sugar in my tea and coffee when I was a child so the sweetened milk pods for the cappucino and latte macchiato came as a shock.
I hope the manufacturer responds to customer feedback and provides an alternative milk pod for the very many coffee drinkers without a sweet tooth.
If these pods existed already I would have given the machine five stars.
