3.0 out of 5 stars Few annoyances, but basically works a treat, 11 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Nespresso Essenza by Magimix M100A, Smooth Silver (Kitchen & Home)
Works as well as any Nespresso machine, pretty much. If you haven't tried nespresso, probably worth finding a local store that sells the machines - they tend to be happy to make a coffee to show them off.

I'm not at all a coffee snob, i like a reasonably good espresso, and that is what you get, pretty much every time. I'd say better than most coffee shops, but you can do better if you have a good local supply of freshly roasted coffee, which you grind your self, and if you obsess over the particulars of coffee machines. For me, I like the fact I can drop a pod in the machine, press a button, and get a better espresso than I could get in starbucks.

Anyways - this machines basically loses a star for an unusual reason. The machine goes into power save mode, and adjusting the timing for when that kicks in doesn't seem to be working for us. Now I am all for power savings, but a) why isn't it pretty much constantly in a state of powersave (yeah yeah, I know), but b) give a better way of controlling it.
