We have a tassimo. I got it for free using tesco points last year. We used it a handfull of times. The coffees are ok. Not a huge fan of the milk. My biggest hate though, the drinks come out drinking temperature. Which is annoying becausee i always forget about them. And the otherdown side is it makes a small mug full.so my mugs always look half full only.
We've got a Nescafé Dolce Gusto & we love it. The pods are on offer in asda & tesco, usually 3 boxes for £10. You can mix and match what you get, or get all cappuccino if that's all you'd use. We've had cappuccino, latte, caramel hot chocolate, espresso, cafe au lait, and ours do cold drinks so we also have iced tea!
I just bought a dolce gusto one today and so far I really like it, I was worried about the temperature of the drinks as some people have said they come out barely hot but mine were hot today and I've heard the same complaint about the tassimo and lavazza machines as well. Pretty impressed for under £40 and I like that I can control how much water goes into it so I can add extra water to make an espresso weaker etc, saw tassimo on offer in curry for £39 as well though if you are still looking and a lavazza one in b&m for £19.
To those with Nespresso machines, Lidl,b&m,Tesco and home bargains do compatible pods, Lidl are nicest. Plus for the milk frother, 'cheap' milk (i.e. Iceland which seems more watery or something) doesn't froth as well as some. I love our nespresso
