Easy to use, great coffee. Have only made a few cups but have appreciated the convenience. Thinking about taking it to the office for afternoon pick-me-ups. My only disappointment was that the milk pods that came with the machine are dated October of 2013. Now I don't know if the pods themselves are not good (as other reviewers say) or if mine were past their prime and that's why they taste bad. I was hoping to taste so I could make my own decision but I think I'll stick to the coffee!
We got two machines one for the kitchen and one for the office. I don't know how we functioned without them ;-) We buy the verismo machine for all our friends who also end up falling in love with them!
The only thing I can think of that would make it better is to have the small glasses as shown in the pictures; the ones the fit the machine when making espresso. Bit this is small compared to the excellence of this machine. I love it!
I am on my second Model 580--the first one was returned because it did not make hot enough coffee, and there was a frothy-type film on the coffee when brewed. My second Model 580 is no better than the first one--it does not make hot enough coffee, and there is a frothy film on the coffee when brewed. I can't seem to get an answer as to why the coffee is not hot enough and why there is a frothy film on the coffee when brewed. When purchasing coffee at a Starbucks location, the coffee is definitely hot and no frothy film.
Incidentally, when I received my second 580, the instructions said to take the plastic film off the grate where the coffee cup sits. No plastic film was on the grate, but I noticed that the paint was bubbling and chipped on the edges of the grate. This does not affect the way the coffee is brewed, but is definitely a quality control issue. The Model 580 needs a complete overhaul or discontinue it completely.
First, the coffee: It doesn't taste remotely like Starbucks. That aside, it doesn't even taste good. I tried several different kinds of pods and types of drinks, and they were all bland.
Next, the machine: It is a pain to use. You have to rinse it before every cup. The pods often fall through before you press the button, then water/old coffee gets everywhere when you try to retrieve the pod. Then you have to either reuse it after it's wet and dirty or throw it away unused.
I returned this after a week. Very disappointing.
First unit always exploded the Espresso Decaf.
Tried multiple boxes.
This one started out doing it, but has now
Starbucks were very cooperative in covering this apparent design problem.
I have had my machine for 1 month longer than the warranty. It has been acting up for a little while-lukewarm coffe, doesn't start with out being wacked, and doesn't shut off when you depress the button. In the beginning it was wonderful but after less than a year it was mediocre. My advice if you you are thinking of buying one...don't!
