Capsule espresso machines excel in two main areas: No muss and no fuss! If you're looking for a home espresso machine that limits both the work you need to put into it and the time to clean up afterward, you'd be hard pressed to select something other than a capsule machine.

Of course, there is a trade off: The shots on these machines -- while good -- will never be that 'god shot' often referenced in coffee-enthusiast communities. But if convenience weighs heavier than flavor in your list of priorities, Nespresso is definitely worth your consideration.

In this video, Gail guides us through Nespresso's new Maestria model, which features their popular capsule espresso extraction functionality and a traditional steam wand. Watch her discuss its functionality and then demonstrate both espresso extraction and making a cappuccino.
