5.0 out of 5 stars A neat well engineered machine to give the full nespresso experience, 1 May 2013
This review is from: Magimix Nespresso M100A Automatic Sand Coffee Maker With Aeroccino - White (Kitchen & Home)
I have a manual espresso machine and grind my own beans, but wanted an Aeroccino milk frother - which I have used at my daughter's house, and is excellent. However the price of this machine, with the frother, was great value - particularly if you can get the 40 voucher offer included. So I bought this, as an alternative machine. I shall also be buying their carry case - so we can take it with us on our travels! (We are very keen on coffee!)

I have used Nespresso machines before, and they provide reliable and very good espresso based drinks. Because it has no cup warmer, I recommend running through some hot water through the machine (just don't load a capsule) into your cups before making your espresso (or use water from a kettle) Using warm cups really does make a difference. The range of capsules is very good - I actually think you get more differences in flavour when you buy your own beans - I find most Nespresso espressos have a common "Nespresso taste" over and above the coffee variance. This is not a criticism, just an observation. Americanos can be made by using a capsule, ejecting it, and then running through more hot water. (Or use kettle water, if that was on anyway for tea)

The Nespresso marketing and support is very good, and the machine itself is extremely elegant and has a really solid feel. If my expensive main machine, or burr grinder, failed beyond repair, although capsules are more expensive than buying beans, I would find it hard to justify replacing my kit these when a little machine like this does a very good job.

The Aercinno is a brilliant device. Put in a small amount of milk, press the button until the required red (hot) or blue (cold) indicator comes on - and it froths the milk and switches itself off. You get a richer froth with full fat milk, but works with the thinner milk types. You can make yourself a Caffè macchiato, as good or better than in any chain coffee shop.
