Is the frother worth $140 over an essenza mini for $85?
If you want frothed milk, then yes.
If you dont want frothed milk, then no.

These prefab cups are garbage. Get yourself fully automatic so it grinds fresh beans - that's the taste you'll enjoy!
I have an amazing super-automatic (they are not called fully automatic btw) at home and a nespresso machine at work. People can have both and enjoy both for different reasons.

Those are two completely different styles of coffee. You can compare Nespresso to other types of espresso machines. Preferring French press over espresso is just a preference in style like preferring marinara over bechamel on pasta. There can be a gap between Nespresso and manual espresso machines but not between Nespresso and French press.

Pods in Spain are .48 euro each or 4.80 euro for the pack. We're getting robbed.
Even cheaper in Austria. I stock up every time I'm there and never have to buy pods in the US unless a special edition comes out that I really want.

How much are the pods each? Are there cheaper generics in general.
The per-pod price depends on the flavor and are all listed on Nespresso's site. Nestle no longer has a patent on the capsules, so more and more third-party options are cropping up. Illy, Starbucks, etc. are now making capsules that fit Nespresso machines. Some are the same price while others are cheaper. Best to just look around due to all the ever-increasing options.

I'll give a different answer than the guy above. The gap between nespresso and espresso is very small. 3/4 experts couldn't tell the difference. Most high end restaurants have switched to nespresso. The taste is more consistent from cup to cup. You don't need to worry about variations in the grind of the bean. I can't find the article that details it if I do I will post it later.

But you can still get an essenza mini, and a separate frother will only cost you $40+, not $140.

What is the cheapest the 870Xl goes for? I think I want to wait for a good deal on that.

If you want frothy milk you can get a separate mechanical frother. If you want to produce quality micro foam like a drink from a coffee shop you need a steam wand. The extra $140 is worth it if you want to get close to coffee shop quality drinks. The steam wand on the Creatista works much better than the aerocinno or any handheld frother. It's also much easier to clean after each use, just wipe it down with wet paper towel and put the pitcher in the dishwasher, occasionally it needs to be disassembled and cleaned according to the on screen instructions which takes a few minutes and is not at all difficult.

A frother is no where near the same thing as a steam wand.

For the current Creatista owners here, is this version capable to create latte art? Of course I understand the milk pouring technique is very important as well. What's the best setting for frothed milk for creating latte art with this model from your experience. Thanks.

Wait what? French press is basic coffee...usually inferior once someone gets used to good espressos.

As I've gotten more and more into coffee over the past couple of years, and have slowly moved from sweet drinks such as Mochas to now enjoying cappuccinos and cortados, I've been wanting to foray into making these drinks at home. I've wanted to do it not only for the savings when compared to coffee shop prices, but also because I really enjoy the beverages and the process by which they're created - they aren't just caffeine vessels to me. After seeing the larger, more traditional Breville models such as the Barista Express, which do go on sale from time to time for about $399 or so, I was all but set on saving for one of those as it felt like a good way to enter the world of at-home espresso. That said, one thing I was worried about with that option was the built in grinder.. many said that a really good, expensive grinder would make a difference. Still, I felt the BES870XL would be great for me. Until I saw this. Even though I would enjoy the DIY experience of grinding myself, with this Nespresso machine I don't have to worry about the quality of the grind, nor do I have to worry about where to get good coffee and then how to store it (because I don't drink espresso each day, I worry the coffee could go bad if bought in bulk). I was never interested in Nespresso previously because I was skeptical of the quality of milk offered by the "aeroccino" as well as how difficult the aeroccino would be to clean/maintain. This unit looks very traditional and attractive and will hopefully deliver exactly the type of beverage I enjoy! Thanks OP!
P.S. I decided to try out Amazon's monthly payment option on this unit because why not?! I'm a regular Amazon shopper and this was the first time I've seen the option. No fee, interest, credit check, application or anything.. just simply divide the price into 5 payments and that's that. Cool! I'll invest that cash elsewhere over the 5 months which makes the price even better.
P.S.S. The Super Automatic options seemed a bit expensive to me and also like they would require some pretty heavy cleaning from time to time (something I'm not fond of lol).

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 got a Creatista Plus for around this price. It was on sale and I was able to stack a 25% off coupon at Williams Sonoma. Normally they exclude Breville but occasionally they work. WS sends the 25% off coupons every few months so it might be worth a shot.
