Found 5th Apr 2014
This was in the LINCOLN store, I'm not if it is national, but they could be trying to sell all the stock which I guess would be nationwide.

It's a good looking coffee machine, comes in silver or purple, the jug is 12 cups when filled, it keeps coffee warm for 2 hours, it's got a cool little digital display, it has a removable and washable filter, and can be used with either coffee beans or freshly ground coffee.

It comes with a 3 year warranty which is pretty awesome for the price, you pretty much guaranteed to get your money's worth.

They had 3 purple ones left in the Lincoln store when I went in this morning.

Does this have a timer? What else would the digital display do?

And can anyone confirm if this is nationwide? About four months ago I visited five Aldis, trying to track down the reciprocating saw that someone had found 1/2 price (also in the Lincoln store, IIRC). They all had it still at full price.

all it says is 'digital display, and microcomputer'.

I don't have much experience with coffee machines so I can't really make an educated guess sorry. Maybe someone else on herer can tell us more, hopefully

Did you try asking Aldi. I'm sure they could have helped.

The offer will be at the stores that have any left, could
be anywhere or hard to find.

Aldi reductions are down to the discretion of the store manager, so not necessarily nationwide.

reduced to 29.99 in ellesmere port still not bad for the money and yes they have a 24hr inbuilt timer

These are awful! Coffee is
lukewarm

I got one of these 2 years ago and it's still making lovely coffee I use the filter coffee in mine. The coffee is not boiling its not supposed to be, it's just right my honest opinion. Voted hot.

Saw these at full price in my local Aldi but they disappeared within a day or two..didn't hang around long enough for reductions to be made!

just buy a hand grinder and an aeropress. The coffee is much better.

Voted hot op
Going out tomorrow
Strawberries from lidl
Coffee machine from aldi
Pomegranate juice from home bargains

Don't you just love hotukdeals. oO

Had on 3 years ago. Great coffee, just a pain as there was a spring loaded clip to close the grinder off. This took several attempts to close it each time. The mother in law dropped the jar and I couldn't get a replacement so bought the new one full price a few months ago. They have got rid of the annoying clip. It just works. The coffee is made hot, but cools down in the jar. I just add milk and microwave it and it tastes great.The hot plate warms it up, but I just let it cool down and microwave it. coffee snobs may say it doesn't tasrte as good if you do that, but coffee snobs won't buy an ALDI coffee grinder and machine. The rest of us mortals can just enjoy freshly ground coffee, or you can buy ground coffee and put it in the filter. If you get it for 20 pounds you have a bargain. I feel at full price it was well worth the price, boy I love fresh ground coffee. There is a timer and an option to grind only 1-4 cups of beans and upto 12 cups can be made.Put it on in the morning and I enjoy it all day.

I got one of these a few months ago for 39.99 and they are incredible. Snap it up at this price!

I thought grinder was an app!

think I will check in my local store later today

Bought one at full price originally and took it back. Makes an annoying loud beeping whenever you lift the lid, and the catch to open the lid felt a little cheap. Other than that it worked OK, although I never tried the grinder. Heat for the price, just wasn't how I wanted it

It says these were on sale 16th Feb in the web address (url) so hit and miss if these are in your local shop?

just googled. hmmm. I know where you are coming from.now.

Yes to this and I grind my beans in a Baymix because this grinds much better than any coffee grinder but should do for the price.

If you can get this for £20, great thats an OK price - but remember that a basic filter coffee machine will cost you £10 at argos or tesco (and will be equivalent quality), and a cheap blade grinder the same.

Personally I prefer espresso based drinks anyway, but if i was to get a filter machine (have considered it) I would pay £20 for a half decent branded filter machine, and just buy pre ground coffee or get a separate grinder for a similar price. You don't have to be a coffee snob to prefer quality

Me to those pesky Gays are taking over our language won't be able to say anything soon without people questioning our sexual preferences.

Does it take Tassimo discs ?

I'm not sure if you are joking or not?

Found the coffee machine in Wath-on-Dearne Aldi today, but it was still priced at £39.99. Didn't bother to do a scan price check at the till, as it seems Aldi's special prices are all down to each store manager.

Filter coffee is delicious in the right circumstances - you get a clean, mild coffee taste that is ideal if you want a mug of coffee, much better than an espresso shot with hot water added (i.e. an americano). If you don't believe me just look at the queue at Monmouth Coffee at Borough Market in London for their Friday morning filter coffee - it's insane!

I also love cafetiere coffee with hot milk in a 50/50 ratio (i.e. cafe au lait), but you have to use fresh coffee, hot (not boiling!) water and a decent thermos-based cafetiere otherwise it cools down too quickly to really extract the flavour. To me this is the real king of coffees.

PS I make every type of coffee under the sun and have obsessively owned loads of different coffee making machines - arabic, turkish, espresso, espresso based steamed milk drinks like lattes or cappucinos, italian moka pots, etc. I have yet to try the aeropress - that is next on my list (although it sounds to me very similar to filter coffee, albeit with a slightly longer brewing time).

I also think there's a lot of coffee snobbery in the same way as there is wine snobbery - used correctly, a £30 espresso machine will make coffee that is just as delicious as that coming from a £5,000 machine. The most important things are using fresh coffee that smells good, and the correct technique. Also a cheap blender will grind coffee just as well as an expensive commercial grinder.

I was with you until your last assertion; doesn't a burr grinder produce a better grind than a "blender" blade type?

I have both and in my opinion coffee tastes the same from a blade grinder as from a burr grinder. I view the claims that burrs grind consistently and don't "cook" the coffee as placebo arguments to justify unecessary investments in more expensive equipment. The main advantages of burr grinding is they are fun to use and quieter. But don't just take my word for it - do a blind taste test for yourself and maybe you will reach a different view!

That's interesting, because I just bought a cheap Tesco grinder (though my sister's going to use it for grinding spices!) and wondered if my boyfriend would like it with his electric Moka pot (thanks to HUKD/Amazon.de). Might buy one for him and test it with beans later.

Decent burr grinders can be £40+ upwards, compared to the humble Tesco grinder at £7 (currently).

Hario burr grinders are less than £20 usually, and do just as good a job as the stupidly expensive machine burr grinders.

Of course the tradeoff is that you have to use those muscle things in your arm.

Fab offer for any one who can get hands on it.

yes, it has a timer, I got one a full price a month or so back. This will be last of line stock, so nationwide but only where they've got some left!

cracking little machine, only thing I don't like is that it beeps like crazy when all it's bits aren't in (grinder, grinder cover, watercover) which is rather annoying when you're cleaning it's bits, and turning off obv kills the clock used for the timer!

But they don't sell coffee beans

So it worked fine, but you took it back because it made a beep!

My sentiments completely. It's like buying an alarm clock and taking it back because it woke you up.

Blade grinders destroy coffee, you obviously have a crude palate. Try some coffee that you didnt buy in a supermarket
