It’s different. I like my Nespresso and I use it all the time. Is it “as good”? Probably not. But it’s better than Keurig.

Stove espresso pots are too variable in their quality. I have had some that were divine, some that tasted like recycled dishwater.

In my opinion, Nespresso is on a par with a Starbucks espresso. When I was in Barcelona last year, I was surprised how many places used a commercial size Nespresso machine.

I love my Nespresso machine. I do think the coffee is better than the stove-top espresso pot (which we used for years).

It is not as good as the coffee I can get from some of the cafes in the North End (Boston’s Italian neighborhood), but it’s close. Plus the convenience of home use and easy cleanup help a lot. Plus, it’s about $1.00 cup.
