Of course he's considering it, and asking questions first. It's called "learning." Look into it sometime.

It says espresso and coffee maker.. Does this mean there is an option to make plain American style coffee as well?

We have a Nespresso machine at home and we use it almost daily. It is incredibly convenient. It's not the most delicious, but it's pretty good and very fast. Nespresso accepts the used pods back and the recycle the aluminum and the spent coffee.
There are two types of Nespresso machines: They accept either pods or larger capsules. This one is a pod machine, which is what we own. Ours is the simplest pod machine: You push a button and out comes espresso until you push the button again. I use a small espresso cup so I can measure, then I pour into the milk. Personally, I think these Nespresso machines are all really the same, and you just choose appearance and convenience features.

For milk frothing, we don't use a wand, we use separate Nespresso Aerocinno4 Frother, which costs about $100. I think it's better than a wand. It works well with Low Fat milk but not too well with almond milk. It's convenient and easy to clean. If making many batches, I put some ice cubes and water inside to cool between batches; that seems to keep the foam thicker than if I use it again still hot.

One recommendation I have: Each time you use it, eject the used capsule and then run water through into an empty cup until clear water comes out. It takes about ten seconds. This will keep crud from building up, unless you like drinking crud. Also, I keep a Brita pitcher on the counter so I can refill with clean, room temp water any time.

Pods in Spain are .48 euro each or 4.80 euro for the pack. We're getting robbed.

In all honesty, having owned multiple cappuccino machines, the aerocinno frother that you can get in the set with the Nespresso machines (periodically showing up as a set for under $100 from Target) is all I use anymore, even when making a regular machine (not Nespresso) espresso.

The trick with the aerocinno is removing it and pouring a bit earlier than it would automatically stop if you want a more traditional Italian cappuccino. The automated stopping point for it is fine too, just a bit on the drier side.

I suppose the main draw to this is having steam temperature controls, but I just wouldn't dream of going back to a steam wand for frother milk anymore. If all you want, though, is a good automatic cappuccino system, any OriginalLine Nespresso with Aerocinno is a solid option that comes up a lot cheaper when it's something like the Innisia bundle.

I have a Baratza grinder (more expensive than my actual espresso machine lol) and like to play around with different beans, but honestly anyone who claims Nespresso pods aren't more generally "good enough" is just engaging in pretentious posturing (at least actual Nespresso pods, in my experience). They're consistently very good for something pre ground and pre packaged, and for an automatic espresso they're a much cheaper option (even figuring cost of pods) than any of the super automatic espresso machines that are worth buying, even figuring cost of pods vs beans.

I bought the creatista plus, v similar and love it. Easy to clean and makes a great coffee. Don't forget to get the recycling bags.

I hope I dont regret buying this vs the Creatista Plus version. Plus have 8 texture levels and 11 different milk temperature settings.... Any thoughts?
I have this and use it every day. I don't think I ever once thought "I wish I had more milk temperature settings". Then again, I pretty much stick to Cappuccino in the morning and an one shot latte after dinner if I feel groggy.

These prefab cups are garbage. Get yourself fully automatic so it grinds fresh beans - that's the taste you'll enjoy!
Nespresso is actually not garbage. For the convenience, they are actually incredibly good quality

I know the nespresso isn't as good as something like a french press, but just how big is the gap, for those of you who have had both?
Lol, what? They aren't even close to the same.

How much are the pods each? Are there cheaper generics in general.

I went from the Creatista to the 870XL. The 870XL is bigger both width and height (the bean hopper sticks up higher). The 870XL is not as convenient, but it makes a much better drink. I was using 2 to 3 Nespresso capsules to make a 12 to 16 oz latte, I only use a double shot from the 870 and it's much better than what the Nespresso made. A pound of fresh roasted beans lasts me a month and costs $13.50, I was probably going through $50 to $60 worth of Nespresso capsules a month. The Creatista I could make my drink in 3 minutes with the 870xl I'm probably around 10 minutes which involves a small amount of cleanup. I'd buy the 870 if you have the space for it over the Creatista.

I am buying the breveille 870xl but it's huge, if this thing allows you to use refill pod, I would consider this. That's all.

Thank you so much for the details comparison ! That truly helps me made my mind to go 870!
