    That's what I said.

    Again, no beef with Nespresso. But to me, the time saving isn't worth the flabby taste,lack of "personality" and higher costs. Moreover, I feel uncomfortable about the everlasting crema. That's all I wanted to say. To each his own!

    So, they are ground under vacuum?

    You're being annoyingly obtuse.

    Has anyone tried Crealto, the new special edition?

    I did. It was ok. Something about it reminded me of like a light chocolate pastry type dessert. Very little acidity.

    I was a little disappointed by nespresso but then I thought about it and I guess it's ok. I wouldn't drink it unless a place I worked at had it for free

    I tried the Crealto today. My initial impression is that it is solid but unremarkable. I bought three sleeves to judge it more fairly.

    I got it earlier this week, but forgot about it. Had it this morning. The flavor is nice, but it tastes a little thin to me compared to some of my other favorites. I too will give it some more chances.

    Looks like nespresso machines are on Gilt today with free shipping. And I also received a 20% code (GILT20) but not sure if it works for everyone

    guys need some thoughts, i want to finally get a nespresso machine and i am stuck between

    Nespresso CitiZ D120 Automatic and programmable Espresso and Lungo Machine w/Frother
    and

    Nespresso Citiz C120 Espresso Maker with Aeroccino Milk Frother

    anyone actually use the "program" feature? also i didnt see any program buttons, sadly there aren't enough angles around to see, can anyone confirm if there are additional buttons to program?

    they're all "programmable". what that means is that you can vary the length of the shot. on amazon both the models look the same.

    I have a pixie as I never add milk or anything to my coffee. I can program mine by holding down the buttons while the shot is being extracted and releasing them when the desired amount is finished. It will remember the length for subsequent shots until you resent it. I would think the other machines are similar that they don't actually have a timer or something to set.

    basically. if he wants the milk frother he might as well get the builtin model. saves an outlet over buying it separately.

    get it at bed/bath/beyond and use a 20% coupon. or wait for a macys/bloomies sale.

    Don't you have those cashback offers? I got mine with 50€ balance, then another 100€ worth of balance for "recruiting" three buyers. Then I eventually sold the machine for 100€ or something after a month.
    So I basically paid ~70€ for the machine (minus the 100), used my machine for 3-4 weeks, drank coffee "worth" 50€ and sold capsules worth of 100€.
