MILITARY Espresso addicts - get this
April 14, 2012
Being a great fan of espresso, even when it's 130-degrees in a desert, I was sorry that the only source of good espresso was the Green Bean (not that I'm complaining - they make good coffee). Still, it's nice to have a cup in your hooch. This little bugger has lasted 2 years in far-less than kitchen conditions with not-exactly perfect water, and best of all, Nespresso club delivers to APO addresses (just handmash 'APO' in the town, "Ax" in the state, and leave a comment). You can specify 220/EU power when you order the maker. I passed my C100 on to my replacement, who tells me it's still working great (going on 2 years). I keep waiting for my home-manual espresso maker to die so I can get the Deluxe!. Um... my only problem was my first cup. I LEFT the hooch while it was running, to discover a table-full of weak espresso! I didn't know that it didn't do volume control! <LOL>
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use
Cons: not auto-volume

Consistent Quality and Crema
January 30, 2012
Excellent little machine that produces very good shots and excellent crema. Is it as good as a perfectly pulled ground shot? No! Is it better than most coffee shops? Actually, yes. I have this one at work and LOVE it. Small, quiet, easily packed home for trips, always produces a smooth an tasty espresso or lungo. Despite the more limited coffee selection, I've only disliked a few of their 'special' flavored ones (limited time offerings.) I prefer the flavor of the capsules in my Lavazza espresso point machine... but it's not highly portable like this one! If you're looking for ease of use it's almost a perfect machine.
Pros: Easy to Use, Time-saver, Easy to Clean, Size, Speed, Quiet, quality espresso
Cons: limited espresso choice

Didn't last too long
January 29, 2012
I've had this machine for almost 3 years now. It worked great up until about 1 month or less ago now. The coffee is fantastic. However, I have descaled it, though due to not using it as frequently (I drink coffee usually 1-2 X per week at home), hadn't descaled it every 6 mos as recommended, but now the coffee brews into the capsule basket and not out the spout into the cup. Is this a problem with a seal somewhere? A clog in the spout? Does anyone have a troubleshooting answer?
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, Design
Cons: Temperamental

check on fixya?
found listed under the nespresso c100 solutions 'Will not dispense the water into the cup when the button is pushed' some worthwhile things to try.
Good luck!
