What is the Nespresso Prodigio? It can be controlled with the use of a smartphone, which also makes it first-ever connected machine. In terms of design, this kitchen countertop appliance is a thing of majestic beauty. It is also well-designed and does not take up too much desk real-estate. Also, and as mentioned earlier on, it can connect to a smartphone app with the use of Bluetooth to provide that extra “oomph” in functionality.
The Nespresso Prodigio is a Joy to Use, if Only it Can be Used With Other Pods
The Nespresso Prodigio will automatically tell you when you’re about to run out of coffee, and you can order some more easily with the use of its app. It will also notify you when it needs descaling or the water found in its tank is also running low. Also, it will tell you when the capsule container is full. And perhaps more importantly, you will be able to prepare coffee from the comfort of your bed or living room couch, or even when you’re at the dinner table and would want an after-dinner cup-of-joe without having to leave your seat.
In terms of design, it does look similar to a few other Nespresso machines that were already released into the market. However, there are some subtle design differences included. For starters, there’s the water tank; there are compact coffee-making machines that have suffered from the idea of small tanks being squeezed into what would otherwise be a sleek shape. The Nespresso Prodigio coffeemaker, on the other hand, has a very obvious large capacity that is packed into its cylinder-shaped tank.
Another neat design feature is that of its base as it accommodates the power cable and it also allows the entire device to rotate 18-degrees. This means that you can sit the tank on either side or at the back. This gives the machine that added flexibility so you have no trouble finding the right position when plugging it in.
So how good is the coffee when making it with the Nespresso Prodigio? In simple terms, you’re sure that you will always have a good cup. The coffee that you will brew with the use of Grand Cru capsules will be constantly smooth, and it will have that velvety crema and rich taste that you may be looking for. But it should be noted that this particular coffeemaker can only be used with compatible pods, and nothing more. Hence, its flexibility is only limited to its design and not for its function.
