We don't use our milk frother/heater cause we had burning issues, we just heat the milk in the microwave now... If I had to replace ours I wouldn't bother with the milk part.
It's used daily, sometimes several times a day. I think it's a nice tasting coffee. So easy to use too which is what I want in the morning when I'm trying to function before I've had my caffeine
Please, please don't get a pod one. They are a disgraceful invention that are awful for the environment. Honestly, it's two tiny extra steps to use an espresso machine and you're not throwing all those horrible pods in the bin. And even if some are recyclable, they are still being produced, packaged, shipped, etc.
for a tiny bit of convenience you're hurting the earth a whole lot.
I have to agree with @FearlessLeader I'm afraid. Coffee pods are like the tampax of coffee machines to me (in terms of unnecessary wastage when you could achieve the same result without the packaging).
We have a manual machine and it is so easy once you are properly shown.
OP, I like our Nespresso machine. The coffee is admittedly not as good as the coffee I get at my favourite café, but it certainly does the job. If you do get a machine it will come with 16 different sample pods. Take note of each one as to whether or not you like it (at the time you have it) so you know what pods to order. Out of the 16 pods, I usually order the same 5 pods.
