If you are looking for a gadget that really looks "tech-y," this Espresso Machine doesn't just look great but really works "tech-y." This is very simple to use. You just have to fill it with water, throw in a capsule, push some buttons and your coffee will automatically be ready for you without much mess. This would be perfect for a person with a busy day ahead. You won't have to clean any spills from making coffee.

Capsules eject semi-automatically into a collection container, there are 12 capsules included. However, the capsules needs to be purchased from Nespresso. Yet that is the only drawback of this item.

Assuming you are comfortable buying one-shot coffee packaging - this is an excellent machine that produces quality coffee. The cost of the machine is largely besides the point as the capsules cost more than a dollar each. Lots of different flavors and ease of use though.
