See the above under quality of product. For the money.....and it's not cheap but still a better buy than the thousand dollar models, this is one great machine. I enjoy mine everyday and always think....I"m so glad eI made this purchase. Delivery was within 5 working days and it was packaged very well. Also, it comes with a nice sampling of the Nespresso coffee.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. This Delonghi/Nespresso Lattissima Expresso maker is the best for the price. It makes great espresso not to mention cappuchinio and macchiato. You have the choice of a regular shot of expresso or the lungo. Also, you can even customize your choice by simply holding in the button and having a bit more or less of any of your choices. There have been reviews which stated that it gave others problems priming both the milk frother and the espresso maker. I had no problems. I read and followed the directions and it worked like a charm right out of the box. It even has a test strip to check your water hardness and then you set this little gem to your specific water hardness. Love the choices I have on this machine....not just espresso and that it automatically makes the perfect amount of milk froth and then automatically adds the espresso. I did not have any problems about the temperature of the espresso being lukewarm. But, I do prewarm my coffee cup for a few seconds. I cannot recommend this mahine any higher.

My wife wanted a Nesspresso machine as soon as they were advertised on TV. I simply could not justify the cost based on the fact Espresso, Cappuccino, Lattes are not exactly an every day thing in our household, especially when the lowest priced units only did not produce all of the different size and drink combinations, or had the milk froth attachments. I was shocked to find this model which pretty much does it all priced so low on Overstock.com. Needless to say my wife was shocked to receive it as a birthday present after I adamantly refused to "waste the money and counter-space". Very easy to use and worth every penny of the Overstock.com price.
