Fantastic coffee maker,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Krups Nespresso XN214040 Essenza Auto Coffee Machine - Earth (Kitchen & Home)
My husband and I purchased this coffee maker after using one on honeymoon that was in our room, we love the quality of the machine and of course the quality of the coffee with nespresso.
It is one of nespresso's lower models available but don't let that put you off it, it does exactly what you want which is to make coffee, the only down falls you lose by saving going on ££'s are...
The cup height is designed for espresso cups you can't adjust the height (but we fit and average cup under that is lower and wider)
You have to lift the handle up to release the pods after use
As small sacrifice if you can't stretch to the high priced models, also when I purchased this model from amazon it was £20 cheaper than buying it from nespresso but still came with the promotional £40 to spend on nespresso coffee pods.
The water tank can easily make 4 cups of coffee, even more if your only doing espresso shots. It is a little noisy but it is heating the water from the tank instantly, we have a baby and it isn't loud enough to wake her. We mainly use it it make espresso shots then add steamed milk to get the best quality from our coffee but if you wanted a larger cup or just black coffee you have the ability to hold the 2nd button on the right to control the amount of water you want and then this clever little machine will remember this for next time.
It's great quality and the best addition to you kitchen, the pods are very cheap and having great tasting coffee in your own home is a luxury.
We also purchased the nespresso Aeroccino milk steamer which is also made by Krupa so we can make our own lattes and cappuccinos.
Both products are great I would highly recommend.
