    We have a Delonghi Nespresso U... you put the pod in, the machine pierces it and runs hot water through it which goes into your cup. At the same time you can have the milk frothing and then you just pour it in on top. Not hard at all

    Our delonghi nespresso latissima does the milk automatically, so you can get that option too.
    It does coffee in first and then the milk starts automatically and has an automatic frother.


    Totally in love with our two beautiful little girls.

    I have a nespresso. I think I would part with my husband easier than my coffee machine.

    Great for one cup but if your making a few for friends it takes so long. Mine has sat in the cupboard for years.

    We are moving into a new house and our main bedroom as a small kitchen sink so I'm wanting to set up for our morning and night cuppas so was thinking this pod thing.
    I had a cuppacino maker before but it was so complicated with bits n pieces.
    Is pod very easy to use?

    Super easy to use. I am a trained barista, but i would never bother with one of those home cappuccino machines, they are so slow and useless. The pod machine is quicker than boiling a kettle for instant coffee. Just put the pod in, press a button, and it fills your cup. Chuck the pod in the bin, you're done. No messy clean up, nothing.

    I saw them at Coles hence why I'm thinking if one?
    Does different capsules fit in the machine? Or do you need the same brand capsule.
    Is it better to get one where milk is in it? I've seen ones with a milk frother that comes separately. Like the ones at Aldi
