The advantages of the Nespresso System


It’s fast, coffee is ready in just a couple of minutes.

It’s convenient, pop a capsule in and press a button.

It’s got a selection of 16 different coffees to suit all moods.

The machine needs minimal cleaning.

The quality of the coffee is good.

The machine footprint is relatively small.


The disadvantages of the Nespresso System


The cost of a capsule is more expensive than the equivalent amount of pre-ground coffee.

Capsules need to be ordered online unless you have a Nespresso “boutique” nearby. Nespresso “boutiques” are not widespread.

Although there are 16 different coffees, the choice is limited, as opposed to other coffee machines which have unlimited choice.

While the quality of the coffee is good it is still lesser than freshly roasted and freshly ground coffee.


Overall the Nespresso system is a great choice for some Lifestyles.
