just phoned up my local and they said the only place that have them in stock is Midway
#2
Seems that some on here are voting cold so must be able to find it cheaper elsewhere but they wont say where from. Can you please let us know.
#3
Personally - go buy a Gaggia or something - much better coffee and much cheaper in the long term.
#4
Just brought mine ... well happy, heat and rep added
#5
cracking price! voted hot
#6
I love my Gaggia and you'd have to prise it from my dead cold hands. This is nice and cheap though.
#7
Great price, but the quality and value of the nespresso pods is appalling. The espresso is the same as black instant nescafe - flat, bitter and no crema.

Gaggia are doing refribished cubikas with £27 worth of pods for just under a ton. Works out the
same, but better looks, better quality and the ability to use your own choice of coffee

Maybe that's why people are voting cold? Personally, there's no way I'm switching to overpriced Nespresso pods, which are far dearer than straight coffee beans and with much less choice. I'll stick with my trusty Gaggia. ;-)

You must of had a bad one.

I've had just about every type of coffee machine, including Pavoni, Gaggia SIemens etc.
The one thing about Nespresso is that it consistently produces a good Espresso with a thick crema without any fuss. The pods are expensive 21p for a coffee. They have a selection of blends and strengths to suit most people. I currently have a Nespresso and a bean to cup system. Both produce great coffee but the pods give more choice and no cleaning up.

+1 to that, I've had pretty much every system going from purely manual bean to cup, to machine, Nespresso etc. For ease of use and cleaning you can't beat the Nespresso - only slightly pipped on manual method for taste. To say there is no crema, you must really have had a bad one as there is plenty of it!

But it still can't compete with straight beans, and it costs up to 4 times as much. What's the point, just to save a bit of simple cleaning?

What a load of rubbish, you need to improve your hygiene standards and your drinks will taste better.

Hot deal :thumbsup:

Since when was somebody voting needed to explain why? are you the witchhunter general?
If someone feels the reason to vote cold then it's up to them, thats what this site is about they don't need to explain to you

Hot deal :thumbsup:


Its not a load of rubbish, its a valid opinion based on personal experience. I've had one of these and the coffee was poor and it is not good value compared to beans or grounds. After repeated testing with friends it went back to the shop. I'm more than willing to accept there may have been something wrong with the machine as other more polite posters have suggested, although I fail to see how you would know I actually used a mouldy cup that had been sitting in my unclean hovel of a kitchen to make said coffee.

You need to improve your manners. Either that or stop getting tetchy about a bleeding coffee machine...
#16
This coffee machine is brill in my opinion. No messing and brill tasting coffee. I got the welcome pack and have all blends of coffee. They are all great and its really nice to be able to offer different strengths to your guests. :thumbsup:

Rubbish, Nespresso gives a fantastic...quick....espresso....loads of crema and the range in flavours is fantastic. Yes they are a bit on the pricey side but these are the best pod systems on the market!

I think 'bit on the pricey side' is a massive understatement, when the pods cost as much as four times real coffee beans.

Anybody considering Nespresso needs to be aware that at, say, 6 cups a day (by no means unusual - and an understatement if you're a family of coffee drinkers) it will cost around £6 per week more than a proper machine using beans. £312+ per year extra!
#19
I'd love one of these, we've got one at work and I thought there's no way I'd be able to afford one.

What's the best way to identify which stores have them? Any online stock checker?:thumbsup:
#20
Not into the exprensive pods thing. The maker may be cheap but overall this will work out expensive. Cold.
#21
Great deal if you can find one in stock as is a clearance item - none available near where I live :cry:
#22
The coffee from these machines is consistently good and it is very easy to use with very little mess or hassle.

Yes you can get better coffee from a manual machine if you get it right and can be bothered with the mess. :?

If you resent the 20 odd pence it costs per cup go elsewhere. It put me off initially , but I take the view that for the cost of a Starbucks or similar I could have 10 of these at home and view them as a bit of a treat.

Probably cheaper than a glass of wine - all depends how much you like your coffee. ;-)

I reckon I have spent £100-£150 on pods per year - bear this in mind before you buy !!!!!! :w00t:

Don't rate any of these capsule/pod machines - they look ok as an ornament, but for making any quantity of coffee, they're rubbish and totally over-the-top price for the pods.

You didn't express it as an opinion which is probably why you drew criticism.
Taste is subjective, yet you stated these tasted bad as fact. No one will argue that they aren't expensive, the pod machines are. The beauty of the pod system is the lack of mess and faffing around. Nespresso have a good reputation.

I got rid of my manual, in favour of a Lavazza Modo Mio system. The coffee is decent. And if you're going to make a latte its more than adequate.

has anyone actually found this machine availiable anywhere? I called the main currys number and they say that they don't stock this machine?

Exactly - plus the fact that every time you have a drink you are throwing away a piece of plastic, which isn't very good for the environment. Shouldn't we be moving away from this kind of thing?
#28
Surely the probelm with these is that they will change/stop producing the pods in a couple of years to force you to buy the 'new' version?

Post 2 above suggests that they only had stock at one branch, and I imagine that's gone by now.

I think the deal is dead, but it's been interesting to discuss the merits and demerits of Nespresso machines.

Personally, I'd prefer to avoid any Nestlé products because of their business practices (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nestlé_boycott)
but they really are ripping you off with pods at these prices. If you feel like paying out potentially several hundred pounds a year extra just for the 'convenience' of Nespresso, feel free, but it's a very high price to pay. A proper coffee machine, bean to cup or whatever, will soon put you into profit at these rip-off prices, and produce you a better cup of coffee.

It is indeed. Charlie Booker also wrote a piece in the Guardian headed:
[SIZE=2]Nespresso isn't just coffee ... it's an aspirational lifestyle marketing exercise by desperate lunatics[/SIZE]


http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2007/nov/26/drink.comment

The FT said:

The trick is to make such goods alluring and to set a price that is steep but affordable. UK newspaper executives sometimes moan that consumers refuse to pay 50p for a newspaper when they spend £2 on a coffee at Starbucks, but a newspaper is not the same thing as a Starbucks espresso. A shot of Nespresso – essentially – is the same.

People can have their own coffee shop at home. They save because, even though it is more expensive than drip coffee, it is still a third of the price of Starbucks,” says Jay Brewer, founder of singleservecoffee.com, a website devoted entirely to, well, you get the idea.


I suppose it depends on your point of view, and whether you're happy to pay Nestlé way over the odds in the hope that the Nespresso brand will impress people. It's the Coke (or maybe the McDonald's) of the coffee world. Some people like brands, some just think they're naff.

I agree with the branding - it's almost embarassing, George Cluney is the "Nespresso ambassador". Every so often Nespresso send a magazine that's full of affluent and hip people drinking nespresso out of tiny glass cups. Articles about yachting and saving the Bongolian minotoad (or something like that). If you phone up customer services you are made to feel inferior by the snooty attitude of the reps (cos that's what they ultimately are). At the end of the day they sell little water heaters that push water through coffee powder. In fact, I've stopped using them because of customer service, totally patronising
Having said all that, it makes an excellent cup of espresso - always fresh and consistently good. It also allows you to make individual coffes i.e. if you have 4 friends you can make one decaf, one weak, one strong and one in the middle. Without opening and grinding different coffee combinations and without mess.
