This machine uses special capsules from the famous coffee makers Lavazza.  The cartridges are vacuum-packed in order to preserve the aroma and freshness of the coffee. This process means that the coffee quality is as good as it can get compared to any other coffee capsule type.

Another great feature of this unit is the design. Lavazza does not look like a regular single serve coffee maker; instead, it looks like a traditional espresso machine.

The machine has two main drawbacks. First of all the price. For $300 it should be possible to get a quality semi-automatic espresso machine, or an advanced single serve coffee maker, instead. The  coffee capsules are also a niche product. This means that distribution is limited,  and a smaller range of coffee products are available compared to other capsule series such as Nespresso or Keurig.

The LaVazza Espresso Point ECL review score is 5.3 out of 10.
