Looks very similar to a machine Dualit were making a few years ago.

Ha! I hate it when people use "pacifically" instead of specifically...there's a lady in my office at work who has done that for years. When it was pointed out to her once, she had no idea that the word "specifically" even existed! oO
Be warned, customer service from these people is terrible...

Espresso is more frequently used than Expresso, but both are valid. Unfortunately. Because the latter sounds silly.

I don't agree with that. "Expresso" isn't considered valid by any of the main dictionaries - mainly because it isn't a valid word!! Do a Google search for it, and it will automatically correct it, for the same reason.

Glad for you to disagree with me, you're certain not the first. I consider the Oxford English Dictionary and Merriam-Webster dictionary to both be "main" and both consider "expresso" to be a variant spelling, but I do acknowledge that this a topic of much debate. See en.m.wikipedia.org/wik…sso for a good treatment.

I recently bought the Dualit machine and was thinking the very same thing, I'm wondering if Dualit make it for them.

Is this bean to cup?
No mate, ground coffee. May be a cup warming tray on the top? Not bean to cup.

You might be right or another company might make the machines for both of them, but I reckon Dualit make their own products. The filter head, centre mode selector, water tank and steam wand nozzle all look the same between the two machines. Plus both have two indicator lamps just in different places on the front fascia.
If that's made by Dualit for them with Dualit parts it's a snip at less than 50% of the equivalent version.

Didn't realise it was so hotly debated! Thanks for the link (genuinely) - it was an interesting read.

Well this has the steam wand you need need for the milk. You would need to get the aeroccino milk frother for the nespresso machine
Is this better than an £80/90 delonghi espresso maker?

Did a lot of looking into the inissia as nespresso have a great deal on now where you can get £45 credit for pods if you but it or £75 back if you buy the aeroccino at the same time. My reasoning was really that longer term the capsules work out at aprox 30p each and with a machine that takes powder you can try a very wide range of different brands and strengths. Guess its convenience against flexibility perhaps? You should be able to make cappuccinos with both

You'd be better to start with the Nespresso.

It takes out so many of the variables that its very hard to make a bad shot.

Variables? Ooooh yes! Temperature of the water. Pressure of the 'tamping' of the ground coffee into the holder. Time exposed to the air since grinding. The grind. And the list goes on (even before considering the beans and their roasting.)
And the Nespresso Aeroccino does a similar de-skilling job - much easier than a "steam wand" (which requires the boiler to be run at a higher temperature than for coffee-making.

The Nespresso system is brilliant for a few shots per day - at which level pre-heating and daily grinding (and grinder cleaning) is a wasteful pain. And buying ready-ground is a recipe for oxidation. Espresso depends on a very fine (powder) grind, so lots of surface in contact with the air and very very rapid oxidation. Hence the creation of "bean to cup" machines that only grind immediately before use - and sealed-pod machines!

Among the Nespressos, brand counts for very little (likely only colour choice!)
Whereas the model affects the capabilities.
The Inissia is a great first espresso machine, and may well spoil you for other types of machine.
It happens to be quite accepting of 'compatible' pods (better than my more expensive 'U') which are usually cheaper than (and nearly as good as) the originals - which incidentally provide a wide variety of different (espresso) coffee styles.

Most folk buying this type of machine will probably discover that they'd have been better to have chosen a Nespresso machine, and, giving decent espresso with zero fuss, that it would have had much more use.
