I have this, and upgraded from an Essenza Mini. IMO it's worth it because the milk forther is a proper steamer, whereas with e.g. the Aeroccino it's just slightly whipped milk. The adjustable steam/heat settings in this machine means I can also have an extra hot cappucino instead of a regular, which I prefer. The machine makes it alot easier to make different types of coffees too, and it looks good - for those of us who've invested in a nice looking kitchen, you want stuff that compliments it. In terms of bean to cup, of course a good bean to cup is going to be produce somewhat better coffee, but the point of capsule machines is convenience. Bean to cup requires more time to clean, generally requires more maintenance, and for me it's more effort than it's worth in the morning. I just want a nice quick coffee before I have to go to work, and Nespresso coffees are really good for a capsule (not 100% consistent, but generally very good), nice enough for me to not really notice. Just press a button and coffee is done. No faffing around, cleaning, bashing, squeezing, etc. The other thing to note is that some Michelin starred restaurants actually use Nespresso (no, I'm not employed by them or a fanboy or anything, just stating facts), so its quite good really.
I don't get this machine at all. With a capsule machine it's all about the capsule you use - the machine is secondary as they all do the same basic thing. I hate to say it but the original Nespresso capsules are head and shoulders better than anything else I've tried. Sage seem to be automating things that really don't need automating with this admittedly handsome machine and charging a hefty premium for the privilege. Bean to cup may not be all that it seems as it becomes much more reliant on the quality of the machine and obviously the coffee beans you put into it - both quality and freshness have a huge impact. You start drifting into a whole different world of coffee - I've also found that many B to cup machines don't have the pressure required to produce a decent espresso with crema. Don't forget that commercial espresso machines start at several thousand quid! If you prefer simple milky coffee then I'd suggest that a more straightforward (Cheaper!) capsule machine would be the next way to go rather than this pretty,...but very expensive hipster machine. You can either look for one with integrated milk steamer or use a stand alone unit. Either option would be a big improvement imo on the dolce gusto.
That seems like crazy money for a capsual machine. Bean to cup is surely the way forward if you're looking to spend over £150.
Totally agree, I have a delonghi magnifica going 3 years strong- entirely different league of coffee and it works out substantially cheaper buying coffee over pods. Some great deals on here with some being sub £200 for a bean to cup. Honestly you won't look back.
At this price I would rather invest in a bean to cup. I've just upgraded my Krups Nespresso to a Delonghi Dedica, there's a big difference on the coffee.
A complete waste of money buying this machine as the coffee strength is dictated by the pods. Putting more water through a pod designed to make an espresso will just give you a crap tasting coffee.
Capsules are an expensive way to make coffee though, better just to get a simple filter machines and fresh filter coffee in my opinion.
Starbucks will recycle *any* Nespresso compatible pods. You can collect a recycling bag from any Starbucks and either return it to them or send it back. From the Starbucks website "FILL IT UP with up to 75 used capsules per bag. Any capsules compatible with Nespresso®* at home coffee machines accepted." Personally I like the Aldi Decaf capsules at 1.69 for 10, although you have to order these online. Are the decaf Cafepod capsules in the Lidl offer?
Funnily enough I bought the silver crest espresso machine( does lattes as well) the good news is that it's around 19p for a double shot and tastes amazing. The bad news is having to clean the basket, run through first before etc etc so takes time. In short for expense and recycling the espresso machine is hard to beat especially lattes etc. However it's anything but fast so if you're in a hurry not for you.
Even cheaper if you use Subscribe&Save. That is what I normally do. Order 5 boxes of different varieties to get the price per pod down to 15.3p.
I'm pretty sure in the Plymouth store they're £1.49.
I'm always on the look out for good pods. M&S do a good few likewise with Aldi. TK Maxx have surprised me too with Jurado pods which were amazing. Any recommendations?
I’d buy these over nespresso anytime, they actually taste like costa signature blend and are cheaper than nespresso
Just tried the espresso 8 strength costa pod and nespresso is better. Won’t buy these again, they are somewhere between your Lidl’s and the real deal but for the price level it’s not worth compromising the nespresso qualit
Totally agree with you Chrisi. Personally I love the Cafepod capsules and they go as low as £2 too.
The only issues I've ever had are with cafe pod capsules which always block my machine. Aldi do some good ones, under £2 for 10. Lidl also aren't bad for the price.
Based on every Costa I've been to, these are empty. Their coffee tastes of dishwater.
It's my post.
Tesco currently have this for 4 boxes (10 in each) for £9 (For those that don't want 100 or want to mix and match) Large selection here.
I brought the Columbia they didn't taste like the Nespresso ones. So I will go back to L'or Ristrettlo. It has a great smell and taste
these are the best compats imo, 17.09 on spend and save, we get no9
Cold from me as John Lewis price is £120 for all the Vertuo plus models and £179 inc the Aeroccino milk frother.
https://www.johnlewis.com/nespresso-vertuo-plus-coffee-machine-by-krups/p3343947 Black one still on offer with 120 capsules
We bought for £120 from nespresso direct and 150 capsules included
Vertuo Plus can still be had for £99 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nespresso-Vertuo-Titanium-finish-Krups/dp/B075DL6QXW/ref=pd_sbs_107_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B075DL6QXW&pd_rd_r=0a8ba177-fd89-11e8-8c9e-259617549045&pd_rd_w=qnJiY&pd_rd_wg=ttElW&pf_rd_p=18edf98b-139a-41ee-bb40-d725dd59d1d3&pf_rd_r=RKRKXQ2Y3YWXBS7XKX9Q&psc=1&refRID=RKRKXQ2Y3YWXBS7XKX9Q
They have been £129 recently. Be back at that after Christmas
If you buy this machine in Red direct from CurrysPCW as well as the std 150 free capsules offer (redeemable online) there is also a £10 voucher in the box which you can spend with nespresso online or instore. So effectively £63 worth free pods Purchased on Fri, free capsules dispatched last night (y)
Yes, you're right of course. They definitely won't send the free capsules for eBay purchases. Given the choice, I'd always buy from Currys/PCW though. Not that I'm a great fan of Currys/PCW - they're just preferable to eBay.
eBay is an approved Nespresso retailer. So if the recipt has eBay on it. They might not approve it. if it’s a standard curry’s invoice you should be fine
Huh? If you buy it you have a receipt. Don't understand your comment.
I bought this machine last year and can recommend it. Simple and quick. Makes very good espresso with a nice crema.
Oh? Please elaborate why what I've said is not a reason why someone would purchase this.
Thanks...just what I was looking for! ;)
Thanks OP, just what I was looking for for my old DeLonghi Lattissima which is huge. You can get an extra 1,000 reward points (worth £1) by leaving a Trustpilot review and sending the link (along with your account email address) to Shop4World via Facebook.
Gosh... are you both husband and wife. :/ Fighting like cats and dogs over tower and flat storage
Mine is also adding “VIEW Cappuccino Cups & Saucers” in my basket for free
I haven't received an email, but if I add 250 capsules to an online order the promotion appears in the basket. Good deal, thanks OP.
I am not sure if this is email selective or not. And I know people like L'or and Aldi/Lidl home brands. I do too, but if you enjoy certain flavours from Nespresso. I hope you like this post. Have a great day (party)
yep mine came within 5 working days, I didnt realise when I bought it but the machine also comes with 14 free capsules as well so they should tide you over till the 150 arrive :)
Within the week
How long did it take anyone to get ther free 150?
i didnt read the small print i thought it was like previous offers not assorted :(
Yep. so my 150 free pods arrived yesterday, after that arrived I got an email that said the second part of the promotion is that if you order 100 more pods within 3 months you get a free travel mug. seems pretty decent.
Maybe a good price but truly horrific coffee. Had a Nespresso for 3 years before going to a Sage Barista, it's a different world believe me.
Point 1 in the review I agree. Point 2. Yes you can, just press the milk button again to override the auto setting and stop it. Point 3. You can if you do the above. The machine always dispenses milk first then coffee, in between there is a brief pause at which point hit the milk button again and machine will stop. Granted not as convenient as the Lattissima touch. Also if you want a Nespresso machine that you can control milk and milk temperature then the Sage Creatista is the only one.
It’s not the coffee but probably the milk. 2 things you can do to help, pre-heat your cups, this is a must on any coffee machine. Flush the machine before use. Easiest way to do both is put your cup underneath and run it on the Lungo setting but without a capsule (middle button on the lattissima one). This will flush any cold water in the pipes and help heat your cup at the same time. Hope this helps.
decent machine but the coffee is never very warm IMHO
This review totally put me off I would much rather the touch version I think
You get control over frothiness of the milk, amount dispensed and you can remove and refrigerate the remaining milk on the touch, reading reviews none of this is possible on the other
I think you also get more control over the frothiness of your milk 🥛
All I could discover was that the EN550 is slightly larger and has a significantly larger milk tank than the EN500. https://www.which.co.uk/news/2018/02/nespresso-lattissima-one-is-this-compact-coffee-maker-your-dream-cappuccino-machine/
Much prefer the colours of the £109 version but not really a good description of it only yes and no noses. I want to know about the touch bit too
Not sure to be honest. This one posted has "touch" in the name the ebay one doesn't, which makes it sound better in my book :D
Oh if you do use zeek. Make sure there JL vouchers still available before uploading credit. There were £100 ones available yesterday and only £50 available tonight. It’s been an expensive weekend (lol)
Thanks for the post. Just ordered and saved an extra £40 using zeek e vouchers. After getting a demo in a nespresso shop earlier this year I’ve been waiting a good deal
Haha. Do it, you won’t regret it. this is my first and only coffee purchase. I took some time to decide to proceed as I’m not a huge coffee drinker but I do like it from time to time (although having more and more these days!) and it is not cheap. Sell the old one one eBay to help recoup some costs?
Hi - would you replace an existing machine with this just to 'upgrade'? My basic magimix is only a year old and works fine...but very tempted by this (got the maximix for £65 last black friday, plus £75 free credit + aeroccino - which is rubbish :) )...I need your permission to purchase :)
I have this machine and I love it. Worth paying the extra for something like this. The milk frother is fantastic. Very easy to use too with a nice little display.
I’m so jealous of this! Would love a nespressso machine
OP must work for hotukdeals
Thanks, ordered for £55.
Just gave it a try myself as I have an account, I came up as their 'expert' and luckily got the same.. thanks op 😁
Picked 1 up for £54.25 on my account. The 3 other accounts in my family are coming up as £99
Whatever you're into
Lidl do an amazing Lungo plus other varieties that tick the box for me. There are also ‘other’ independents who sell their version on eBay or direct so there is choice. All in the same compatible pod. Back to this machine. Does anyone have it and any user feedback. My machine of 3 years died this morning.....RIP.
I've tried some of the Starbucks capsules & they weren't for me. To be honest, when the price per coffee is only 10-15p more, I'm happy to stick to Nespresso. In reality I don't pay anything like face value because I have a subscription & sell the £1 machine every year. I've just done the maths for the 1st time & realised that I'm paying about 25p anyway!
£90 for me?
g I'd recommend the Starbucks ones tbh (partiuclarly the Lungo). Can get them for about 25p/each in bulk :)
Hadn't realised , sorry.

Silly question but is this only for espresso capsules?
Ditto ordered lst night it was 110 - then turned 100 after midnight -
Ordered! Been waiting for it to go down to this price for months.
It’s on for £269 in curry’s with pods if that helps
Great deal! Would you be kind enough to let me know what the 120 capsule deal is from nespresso please? I can’t find anything when googling it although it’s not unlike me to miss something right in front of my eyes!! Many thanks
Great price for this excellent machine
Nespresso has been going for a pretty long time, so I imagine quite a while... Excellent coffee.
I'm wondering how long all this nespresso/dolce gusto/tassimo hype gonna last?
