Rather than driving to a coffee shop where you take a chance on getting exactly what you want, you can become your own favorite barista with the Nespresso Maestria C500 Espresso Maker - Black. This machine provides a perfect blend of innovation and simplicity. Features include a cup heater, so your mug keeps your brew warm longer, an Aeroccino 4 milk frother that froths hot or cold milk to expand the flavor range, and a high-pressure extraction system to release the aromas and unique flavors captured in each coffee capsule.
Another unique feature is the descaling alarm and water-hardness setting. In a hurry? You'll appreciate that this coffee maker takes only 25 seconds to preheat. A generous, removable water tank provides just the right portions. A pivoting cup shelf accommodates various cup sizes, including tall recipe glasses, and even a thermos for coffee on-the-go. This machine uses custom coffee capsules (not included), and features an automatic capsule perforation inside. The capsules are ejected into a collection container that holds up to 14 used capsules. The automatic and adjustable coffee volume quantity dials allow for optimum flow and distribution of water through the ground coffee, ensuring that each cup is brewed precisely to your liking. This Swiss-made coffeemaker is both beautiful and practical.
