Nespresso Essenza C100 Espresso Maker

What's new about the Nespresso Essenza C100? How about it stopping automatically when the espresso shot is done. We loved the Nespresso C90 but it didn't automatically shut off. Several times we've turned our back thinking it would shut off (all of our other single serve coffee machines do) and gone a little overboard on how much water made it to our espresso shot. The Nespresso C100 will also allow you to pick what shot to put on the brew button. You can choose between the 5 oz lungo shot or a standard espresso shot.

  • Automatic ejection of used capsules on lifting the handle
  • Collection container for used capsules

After a few days of use here are my comments for the C100T and Aerocinno.
I am using the combo in a small office setting. The no mess of the espresso machine is great. The shots are really good and consistently good. The machine is very simple to use. Fill w/ water, turn on drop in espresso capsule, push button, and you are done. The only drawback I can mentinon is the capsules must be ordered from nespresso directly. In terms of cost they are significanlty more expensive than premium whole bean or ground espresso roast coffe (lavazza, petes, starbucks, etc.). So with regards to the espresso machine it is perfect for my office due to the no mess and no fuss cup of esspresso. Honestly, I love it. But in my home I will be keeping my Starbucks barista espresso machine due to the fact that it will take any espresso and at home it is easy to clean.

The aerocinno is ingenious. It is the perfect compliment for any espresso machine with one caveat, the servings that it can make are only for one so if you are preparing multiple beverages are large single servings it must filled multiple times. If you overfill it, it will make a mess spilling over the sides. I am considering getting one of these for the home too due to the ease of use in comparison to the steamer attached to my espresso machine.

In conclusion, I do reccomend this combo highly with the points mentioned above in mind.

I would go for the Essenza with the Aeroccino for milk preparation. This is a really good machine and is alot cheaper. I have the Magimix M200 Auto which too has a milk preperation system. I find this better as i too am a big latte drinker and not espresso fan.

I received a Romeo as a gift from my husband, and I really like it, but because of the expense of this unit, I am considering returning it for a Essenza C100 and then buying the new Aeroccino for milk preparation which would be a fraction of the cost. I am a big latte drinker, and the only thing I don't like how I can't pull shots directly into my milk from the Romeo because my cups are too tall. I would love advice from the experts - is it worth the price to stay with the Romeo even though the Essenza makes a comparable shot? I'm torn because I'm a huge espresso lover but not sure if the cost of the Romeo is worth it....
