    Return.. or wait as long as possible -- these machines have a tendency to break down after two years so it might be good to get a new one after one year. Of course, if you get it to work again somehow.

    Damn. That's what I get for buying a refurb. I suppose I'll call Nespresso and see what they say. Maybe they'll send me a new unit...

    @sinnedk: If it works most of the time, use for as long as possible, then send in. Alternatively, send in directly.

    No, from overstock.com as a refurb.

    Call them and have them send you a free return shipping label. Then go buy one during Black Friday. You'll be able to find it for 20-25% off easy.

    Okay. I know overstock has new nespressos for 220. Maybe I could get them to give me an additional discount...

    I know I'm late to the thread, but just wanted to add my two cents that Nespresso is great. My only complaints are the single-source nature of the capsules and the waste generated by the capsules. However, I'm fortunate to have a bricks-and-mortar Nespresso outlet in Toronto not too far from my office, so I just fill a container with used capsules and periodically return them for recycling.

    As far as the single-source issue, that is also potentially changing based on some recent court decisions. However, even if you stick with the Nestle offerings, they are good quality, and not really that expensive (especially compared to coffee shop prices).

    I currently use the discontinued Romeo machine, which is owned by my roommate. But I'll be moving out next year, and getting a machine of my own will be pretty high on my appliance list.

    It's probably time to post this link to the Outpresso again:

    http://www.outpresso-usa.com/

    It separates the grounds from the aluminum, so you can recycle the aluminum canisters, and put the grounds in your compost pile.

    You can bring the capsules back to Nespresso and they recycle them for you.
