Exploring the Nespresso Machines

Are the Nespresso machines better than any other single cup coffee makers? Can a perfect espresso really come from a Nespresso espresso machine?

Introducing the Nestle coffee machine

Nespresso is the marriage of espresso machines (deLonghi coffee makers and Miele appliances) and the Nestle company (yes… the chocolate !)

More than 20 years ago Nespresso developed and patented an exclusive system for mastering the preparation process of the espresso drink.

And more recently, have partnered with carefully selected, renowned household appliance manufacturers.

Now, together with the technical know-how of both DeLonghi and Miele the Nestle coffee machine / Nesspresso machines are the state of the art for any home coffee enthusiast.

Having used both Nespresso coffee machine and most of the Keurig line of single cup coffee makers, I am convinced that the coffee brewed in the Nespresso brand of single cup coffee maker produces a single cup of coffee or espresso that is as close as you can get to puling your own espresso shot or frequenting the local coffee house.
