    I own an Nesspresso Essenza D90 since December of 2007. From the moment i has it, idont make traditional coffe yet. To put on the table a couple of pros of this system or model, its a system very cleaner because you don't have to clean the coffe maker every day, its more fast to make a coffee, you can obtain one coffe in less than a minute. Nespresso has a lot of tastes and it was a lot easy to obtain new coffe, you only need to locate a near store and buy it, also you can buy nesspreso pills from internet and you obtain it in about two days.

    A couple of cons for this machine, sometimes it stops making coffe and a "reset" is needed, this morning i must wait 15 minutes for the coffe ;(. Another problem is that there are no indicator on the water level so if you run out of water, the coffe maker don't work and it uses th pill. To close the article i would like to talk about the other alternatives.

    Recetly arrives on the market a couple of systems with hibrid models allowing making coffe, making chocolate and making milk, the model i own only allows to make coffe, the next coffe maker i buy i am sure that it comes with a hibrid system allowing the family to use it too. An exaple of this systems are Tassimo, also there are coffe from Starbuks on pills to this system, that's a win option ;).
