If you are a buyer who likes the idea of coffee shop quality coffee then this is an ideal model to consider. This model does sit in the premium range, so the build quality is very high, and the appearance as you can see from the above image is second to none.

What Buyers Said About this Model?

We know from the above satisfaction rating that overall buyers rated this coffee machine with an excellent rating. In this section we look at what buyers had to say about why they gave their rating and why they awarded the score that they did.

To achieve this we have read the reviews, and then summarised those. We found the easiest way to present these was in the form of a pros and cons table, which we have included below.


  • Buyers loved the 3 second heat up time as that avoided having to wait on long warm ups
  • Buyers liked the simple display and the fact that it was very easy to read
  • Buyers loved the fact that you could customise your coffee
  • The vast majority of buyers loved the way this machine frothed the milk
  • Buyers say this is very fast and easy to set up


  • A few buyers said the milk frother did not do a very good job, and was quite inconsistent

You can quickly see from the reviews above that buyers really like this machine a lot. The only negative feedback was from one or two buyers who clearly had an issue with the milk froth.

Overall we read all of the reviews and in the main the reviews were slowing. This isn't a cheap machine by any standards, but buyers felt they were getting good solid value for money.

Our Verdict on this Nespresso Creatista Plus Coffee Machine

This capsule machine is one of the most expensive of these types of coffee capsule machines. That said, it is also one of the very highest quality ones that you can buy.

The 94% buyer satisfaction rating speaks for itself and is always a very good sign for any potential buyer to see.

The machine as you can see from the video is very easy to use, and does make great coffee.

It is expensive for this type of machine, but you do have some great choices when it comes to adjusting the strength of your coffee, and the various temperatures for your milk.

There are practically no complaints about this machine from buyers and that is always a very good sign. A few people did complain about the milk frother.

They were in a small minority though and most buyers said that feature worked really well. Our only real grumble here at The Perfect Grind is the price point for this type of machine.

It's expensive but we are certainly not questioning the quality of this Nespresso Creatista Plus. If you are someone who likes to make their coffee quickly and to a high standard, then the investment is worth it.

  1. The Nespresso Creatista plus is great when it works but the steam wand is so temperamental, my first machine went back to Nespresso 5 times, it was eventually replaced but that only lasted a couple of months before it started playing up. Have looked after it to the book if not more intensely. Cant wait to use up my pods then get rid if the thing, drives me crazy. Also the nespresso customer service how frustrating are they, every call takes forever going round and round in circles, you have to make several calls to get anywhere. I know people love this brand but I wouldn’t go near them again after my experience. Oh and another thing, you can only use fresh, no older than 2 days from purchase, semi skimmed milk at an optimum temperature. No whole milk or milk alternatives.
