Nespresso C185,D185,C180,D180 Le Cube Nespresso Capsule System Coffee Machines Review
This series of cubic shaped espresso machines, for the Nespresso capsules system has a variety of models: The Nespresso C180, D180, C185, D185 Le Cube. They are the same models as the European Krups and Magimix Le Cube’s. There is a slight design difference between the models, as you can see in the photos.
These are the advanced machines Nespresso offers for its capsules system espresso makers. The machines don’t have a built in or plug-and-play milk steaming / frothing nozzles, but with the supplementary Nespresso Aeroccino Automatic Milk Frother, you can get great tasting espresso from the Le Cube, and beautifully frothed milk from the Aeroccino.
Both makers include a programmable dosing system to control the exact amount of water that is injected through the capsule to make the perfect espresso drink. Simpler machines require you to press a button when you want to start, and then again when you want the water to stop flowing.
Another feature these machines have when comparing them to the simpler Nespresso D100 and C100 machines is a height adjustable cup tray, so you can prepare your coffee in espresso cups as well as latté glasses.
Another feature that exists in these machines is a special holding dock for 6 espresso cups (3 in each side of the machine), and in specific models of these machines the dock warms up your cups. This is really important for some espresso drinkers so they will appreciate this.
One last note, in case you don’t know this, you are limited to one of 12 flavors in capsules currently offered by Nespresso. Only Nespresso makes and markets capsules for Nespresso machines. This is not a big limitation really, since 12 is a nice variety, and Nespresso offers an easy way to order capsules from its website.
