Best Overall Nespresso Machine

Why people love it
  • A stylish machine with a small footprint
  • Makes delicious coffee with a superb crema
  • Easy to use and clean

  • Water tank-level indicators
  • Folding drip tray for a variety of cups
  • Convenient cord storage
  • Some large mugs don't fit easily
  • A few users find it on the noisy side

There's a lot of reasons to love this particular Nespresso model, beginning with the wonderfully small footprint and easy to use system. Indeed, it's got just about everything you need for an amazing cup of coffee.

We particularly like the programmable buttons for cappuccino as well as lungo, the convenient power cord storage, and that this machine falls in the energy consumption class of A-40%.

Finally, if you're more of a De'Longhi type of person, you can pick up virtually the same model by this brand. If you don't have a preference, you may be happy to learn that there's usually one on sale.
