    I got a nespresso for christmas. I use it everyday, sometimes twice!

    I love coffee but no way am I going to be bothered grinding beans and cleaning the whole machine. Its so easy to use and just takes few minutes to clean.

    I have a Nespresso and an Aldi knock off. (Yup, we are coffee FIENDS!) We adore both, but use the Aldi more because the pods are much cheaper and readily available - i.e. I don't have to drive 45 minutes to a posh area of Sydney to buy them or wait for the postman if I'm all out. Only issue with the Aldi machine is I haven't seen decaf pods at all - so I use the Nespresso when I've had my one coffee for the day to have a decaf if I want it.

    We also have a Rancilio with a separate grinder. It makes excellent coffee, but I hated the way it spat grinds all over my bench and the side of the fridge. I was forever wiping everything down, and coffee grinds stick to everything and are just horrible to clean IMO. So we've abandoned it to the back of our cupboard in favour of the sealed pod machines.

    Becandbub, do you find the Aldi one is just as good?

    DH and I have the Gloria Jeans brand one. It's automatic but that's for us as we like to have our coffee different ways and hotter etc plus it's so much fun! 400 I think it was but it's great for us!

    Becandabub - I placed an order over the phone when my internet was down and the operator asked me if I wanted them left at my front door if I wasnt home. This is now a special instruction on all my orders so I never have to make a trip to the post office to collect it. Maybe its an option for you as well.

    I also love the Nespresso machine. Good coffee, easy to clean, most importantly its quick. My Mum has the Aldi machine and she loves it. I did notice though that her milk is a lot frothier than mine, so more like a cappuccino than a latte. But on the whole, its also a great product and given that the capsules are cheaper, I would have bought an Aldi machine if they were around when I got my Nespresso.

    I know this wasnt directed at me, but I just posted above about my experience with my Mum's machine. On the whole, I find it just as good.

    I have a nespresso and use it several times a day. It isn't the *best* coffee around, but it is far from the worst, and I really enjoy my lattes throughout the day. The machine is SO easy to clean, and it makes barely any mess.

    I used to have a machine where you pop the ground beans in, and stand and froth the milk - it was a PIA...I simply don't have time for that hassle now.

    I have tried the Aldi version - the machine is well made but the coffee is pretty bad, IMO. I prefer the Nespresso.

    I highly recommend shopping around for prices. I almost bought mine from Myers, but went to the good guys and got it for $150 cheaper

    oh, re the Aldi one, I have only tried on type of their coffee. I know they dont have as big a range as the nespresso range.
