Verismo® 600 Brewer Piano Black
Good Things, Bad things and the Indifferent
Lever to puncture pod has a nice weight and feel to it.
Interesting pod drop design that hides the spent pods.
Continues to drain water after you made a cup of coffee and this is by design (yes it tells you that you have to lift the lever to stop it from draining but it still drains a little into the pod catcher).
You have to peal off foil from the bottom of the coffee pods before you can brew them.
Inconsistent pour. (First cup in the morning has been consistently less full then subsequent)
The Indifferent:(These do not bother me but I know others it would drive crazy.)
Loud when it first starts brewing.
Reservoir is on the back and is removable. No way to fill without removing reservoir. This being on the back means you have to move the machine each time you want to fill it up.

Love my Verismo!
Received my Verismo 600 as a gift for Christmas after researching different products and giving hints that this was my choice. Having had a high priced system which no longer worked, I wanted an automatic system not as pricey, but that would give a great espresso for me and coffee for my husband. Unfortunately, the first system I received did not work and had to be shipped back. Starbucks proved great service in the ease of the return and the quick turn-around to get me a new machine. Bingo! The second machine works great, is fast and easy to use and makes a rich and tasty espresso, coffee and when using the milk pods, a great latte. I love that I can pickup the pods at my local Starbucks and have espresso whenever I want. Best Christmas gift ever!

Real Cafe Mocha!
My first unit, a Christmas gift, was inoperative - I never could get it to go through it's mandatory, first nine rinse cycles! Starbuck accepted the return and provided a refund of my purchase amount.
After spending some time reading a several reviews indicating that a number of folks accepted replacement machines that worked perfectly, I decided to give it another try. I bought the 600 based upon its great looks and simple design. As soon as I got home, I filled it with water, ran the SINGLE rinse cycle, then loaded the two different pods, pushed "Brew" and was satisfied with a cafe mocha that tasted just like Starbucks prepares!
If you want a machine that will give you great tasting Starbucks coffees, do try this unit - it is worth all the extra effort should you need a replacement!
