Just tasted the Linizio. It's too acidic for my taste.

Agreed. Quite light, with a decent crema. I didn't pull it as long as a lungo, and it tasted pretty good, not great. Would really like to see Nespresso come out with a solid strong lungo.

i do the arpeggio as a lungo and its good
post #560 of 882
My preference is to dilute the Arpeggio.
post #561 of 882
Arpeggio is a crema monster. If I want a lungo I just pull two shots. I think nespresso should look into doubling the amount of coffee in the pod or something and having lungo versions of all of the varieties. It must be hard to find farms that can keep up with the output this is probably why they haven't changed their varieties, like, ever.

So I inherited this ridiculous built-in Miele Nespresso machine with the apt I just bought. $2500 for a glorified instant coffee machine. But it just broke and will cost $400 to repair. Unfortunately, it is set into the cabinet wall and matched to the Miele micro/conv oven so pulling it would leave me with a big hole to fill.

 

Bite the bullet and repair passing it on to the next sucker? 

Yank it to sell and try and find a replacement door? 

Keep it but use the inside to store pot?

$400? Why the fuck is it so expensive? Is that direct from Nespresso or Miele? Personally, at that much money, I'd just let it sit and collect dust. Doesn't sound like you're that interested in it anyway.

From the authorized Miele repair guy: 
 
Valve housing     $15.44
seal                   $  6.24 back order
cap                    $14.86 back order
water reservoir   $146.63
 
Parts total   $183.17
call charge  $110.00
Labor           $85.00
                 $387.17
Tax             $33.56
 
Sub total     $411.73
Freight           $6.00
 
Grand total  $417.73
 
I love the fact that they charge $115 to travel to me, but only $85 while they're here.
 
I hate having broken things in my house otherwise I'd just let it sit. Lawyer is now looking into having the repairs done by the seller as the unit wasn't really delivered in working order. Not holding my breath on that one.
 
If I could get $750 for the whole thing I might just rip it out and spend that money on the putting in a replacement door, but Im sure that's going to be a nightmare as the cabinets came from Italy.
 
Never buy someone else's renovations.

damn Miele Nespresso machine is 2500
post #566 of 882

It's insane. The water isn't even piped to the machine. But it's enormous and built in so it gives off the impression that you have a professional grade espresso machine.

There have got to be other Miele products that fit the same cutout. Maybe they are more useful than a built in, non-functioning coffee machine. If something were permanently broken in my house it would drive me up a fucking wall.

^This.

I'm sure, but between the two Sub Zero wine coolers, the Miele stove top, the Sub Zero fridge, the Miele micro/conv and the Gaggenau oven I'm pretty covered with stuff I need or want. I could use more storage for all the coffee capsules I bought though.

 

I'll probably end up getting it fixed just so the rube I sell it to walks in and says, "Look, honey, built-in nespresso ... nice."

 

Like I did.

Not going to lie, I'm fairly jealous. Growing up in a restaurant family, Miele is definitely up there. Electrolux is also quite nice.
