 The Lattissima is not recommended by them due to unreliability. The Delonghi machine is covered by local warranty when I bought.

think that is for Lattissima (older)? they are marketing the Lattissima Plus now.

My Aerrocina just died...good thing its 1 mth before warranty expire! Called them and they will bring down one replacement this week...

Seems Aerrocina indeed has some issues...my friend changed it twice within warranty...

I am also still trying to figure how to create the same nice Cuppercino like in Starbucks...but somehow, not possible

yours is aerocinno 1, 2 or 3? only 2 and above is ok.. 1 is horrible
maybe the human ear isn't good enough. we need measurements, figures, numbers, calculations to tell and convince us what good sound is. or do we have to satisfy an unspoken insecurity??

I overstocked on last year's variations as well as the limited editions... but that's not going to stop me from getting the new ones! ;D

Just opened the coconut. Smells good but as an espresso doesn't taste of coconut. As a latte. Beautiful. I think it might benefit adding some liqueur :)

Just bought the new U model at $288. Comes with a $100 capsule voucher!

I love the magnetic front and sides, the auto clearing mechanism for capsules, the anti-drip feature, and most of all, the larger volume of coffee it dispenses.  :D

Hazelnut is a bit like last years' Dark Chocolate. A bit chemical tasting but OK with milk. I found a recipe that said to add a bit of chocolate at the bottom and it does help a lot.

Does anybody agree with this logic?

I went to get a replacement milk foamer for my nespresso. My old one kaput after 3 years of use. I was asked if I used UHT milk on my machine. I asked him what would be impact the useability of the machine?

He said that UHT milk can damage the foaming machine. I find this not logical. Firstly, all milk is liquid and secondly, the milk does not come into contact with the spinning magnetic mechanism. How on earth would this damage the foamer?

Anybody agree with him?
