Thought this wasn't bad for this coffee machine.

same good price as end of last year when I got mine. good machine, simple to use. nice and small too.

The price is good BUT you pay through the nose forever after!
work out how much a cup of coffee costs you, what is the typical serving size again? ...not big, around 180ml?
& the capsules are not recyclable, enough sold & landfilled to go round the planet.

Wife bought one, after the initial "what fun" it dawned on her how expensive these become, especially when adding a bit of multipack variety.

The machine packed in, it won't be replaced, luckily the useless thing was free from new.

So, good find OP, just excuse me for not voting, it would be unfair.

Can this machine be used with pods compatible with tassimo pods? I'm guessing the machine won't read barcode of compatible pods so wondered how it would work.

A charity called Count the Kicks accept the empty capsules and packaging they are able to recycle them. We have a local charity rep that collects ours.I presume the reps are national.

I have one of these, it's called a kettle!!

Tell all the American actors and actresses that - they are forever buying coffee! OK, they are rich, but why buy coffee when you can use a kettle, a cafetiere...

Not really a bargain. Seen weekly at the same price. Voted cold on the deal but machine is decent enough

Good brand, make some great drills.

good machine, pods aren't the cheapest but reasonable
brought one when tesco had these at this price in January

recently seen in Morrisons for £90

My Wife got me one yesterday for Valentine's, nice machine, nice size., haven't had a chance to try it yet wife has though and said it makes a good cup, so thumbs up from me.

Great machine great coffee but reservoir way too small for your average family. Go for the Fidelia with its 1.5L tank.

Mine is called the hot water tap.

Those quoting coffee price don't know own one or don't know where to shop. It regularly costs me 3.20 per 16 pack of good tasting Costa Americano and Kenco Columbian coffee pods whenever they're on sale at Tesco or Sainsburys (quite often), coming in at just over 20 cents per coffee. We always load up when they're on sale. For that price the coffee is great, much better than instant and better than most home brew!

20 cents ... ?!!! Lol

The water reservoir is only good for about 4 drinks, but that's fine for my wife and me having one each a day. It's a real small machine though which is nice. The Costa Americano or Kenco Columbian / Cafe Crema coffees (which come in a 16 pack) will cost you between £3.20 and £3.99 a pack (depending on offers) which makes a single drink 20p to 25p. When my two year old wakes up at about 5.50 in the morning and calls me downstairs to play cars with him, I'd pay a lot more for a decent cup of coffee.

I love my tassimo coffee machine, it makes great teas/coffees/hot chocolates at the touch of a button. it's so easy my 6 year old niece can make herself a hot chocolate when she comes round. Bonus for me as well because I won it in a raffle!

Cheer up! We use ours several times a day, coffee isn't too expensive if bought off Amazon and some great tasting ones. Nicer than filter coffee, so good price for this machine.

A bit more info on that would be good, when this first came out (the dolce gusto) I rang & asked about recycling, all but the aluminium mesh was landifll, you have to rinse out the gunky units & scrape the foil, no recovery tab included in design, also @thestoryofstuff has rightfully highlighted & railed against these for years, I think ours was purchased in 2005.

LOTS of pointless landfill, whereas modern product design implementation ought to base itself on end of life for its entire product, not just the core machine.

one or two late to the game capsule recoveries YEARS after these came onto the market does not redeem it as a green product ..which the pr machines of the respective companies always claim to be.

Hot. Never stop using my Tassimo machine. love it.

I don't disagree Mr Gus but 2 wrongs don't make a right and its good that at least now these companies are taking recycling and the environment much more seriously. But its good to see you are very passionate about the environment, I wish more people would be, they should but most people are more interested in themselves than our planet. Which in itself is astounding considering we are in fact a by-product of said planet.. anyway back on topic, I agree with you re these 'fashionable' coffee machines, whilst they do produce really good coffee, they are never cost effective at all... regardless of what people claim, but I guess like anything it depends on how much you're prepared to spend.

May be good (ish-normal nowadays) price but youll still regret buying. Makes awfully small, horrible tasting expensive drinks. Only good thing is, its very quick and easy to use.

Dolce gusto is nothing to do with tassimo. They are completely different machines.

I will never understand why people pay money for such a sub standard coffee machine. I guess it's ignorance more than anything. Check out what actually makes a good cup of coffee (quality coffee) and how you need to brew it (a strong coffee machine at least 13 bar pressure). Tassimo have neither of these. Essentially you may as well bypass the machine and pour water through the pod and save yourself 35 quid.

Dolce gusto are always on reasonable prices and if you can afford a bit more look at a nespresso or bean to cup.

Oh and check out the ingredients in the 'Costa' latte... Salt and E numbers yummmmm!!
