I am looking at replacing my old Starbucks Barista Espresso machine with a Nespresso + Aeroccino (http://www.amazon.com/Nespresso-Automatic-Espresso-Limousine-Extended/dp/B0039K8OYM/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1274986597&sr=8-3). I have had espresso made from an older Nespresso machine and if you use the correct strength/flavor capsule it comes out pretty good, and the machine seems to brew perfect crema.

Just wondering if anyone has any comments (good or bad) on these.

I am truly surprised that I received no responses to this query...

Anyway, I purchased the Nexpresso and I love it! It heats up very quickly, makes great crema, and is a snap to clean up.

Nestle has a wide variety of capsules, and my wife and I are on our way to sampling them all to find out what flavors we like.

It also makes a great cup of coffee! When I first talked about purchasing a new expresso machine, my wife made it very clear that she was going to continue to use her coffee maker. Well after her first coffee from the Nespresso she put her coffee maker in the closet!

The capsules vary in price from 55-62 cents, and Nestle ships them 2nd day, so that orders arrive quickly.

I highly recommend the Nespresso!

thanks for the update - I've had it from the Nespresso store... but not at home. May be worth looking into.

Has anyone ordered the "Welcome Offer" package -- 200 capsules and a tray that holds 36 capsules for $110?

I can't decide if this is worth it or not. The 36 capsule tray is probably too large for me to use on the counter or in a cabinet, but the 200 capsules are might be a good deal...
