So... I bought the Nespresso U.
As tempting as it was to buy one of the $100 jobbies from the Warehouse or Countdown, I picked the $350 Nespresso U. ($399 minus $50 cash back)
It looks much nicer, and feels like a better quality product.
It also comes with a 2 year warranty.
Caution: Goodguys comes up in price comparisions as being the cheapest... but they sell the 2 year warranty for an additional $80, so if you want the warranty, just buy it from Nespresso.
Despite what most people say, it is cheaper for me to buy Nespresso capsules and use that machine than making my own coffee with my Rocket. Historically, a $15 250g bag of beans lasts me a week and I use a tonne of milk. Now I'll spend around $10-$15 a week on coffee and use a lot less milk (not that I can see how much is in the confounded bottle ).
I'm now enjoying consistently good coffee in an attractive, simple, clean, efficient, small, fast package!
