Comment:
There are many ways to make coffee at home but making great expresso at home is time consuming, often difficult and the best machines cost a fortune.<br /><br />The Verismo makes it easy. Drop in an espresso capsule, push the button and one shot takes 15 seconds and press twice for a double shot of espresso in 30 seconds.<br /><br />Three or four types of Espresso are available. Costco and Bed, Bath and Beyond run specials that reduce the cost to about 75 cents per capsule. A double espresso or tall Misto...cafe au lait, cost two or three dollars at a coffee shop. Less than a dollar with the Verismo for equal quality.<br /><br />The unit is compact and looks more expensive than its current low price.<br /><br />Complaints about water leaks may result from forgetting to empty the drip tray after every six or seven capsules.

Comment:
My brand new machine purchased from CostCo leaked water from the underside instead of dispensing into the cup. Customer service told me to take it back, so I did. I've seem similar comments from others- they must have very poor quality assurance.
