Thats what it says on the spec sheet! Been after a good coffee machine for a while and this one looks to fit the bill with the warranty as well!

Have had one for a couple of years and its great.

The only thing is that if you have hard water are then de-scale it now and then with a citric based descaler.

Makes lovely coffee and the best thing is you can program it to brew the coffee at the same time as your alarm goes off for fresh coffee in the morning.

Wow! Bean to cup (or rather jug) for £35? This will get hot (no pun intended).

I heard that freshly grinded coffee is good for your healthy. I might buy one.

Looks good this for the price......
Heat.

I may be showing my Aldi ignorance here, but I just found a Remind-Me service on the deals link which will email me on the morning the deal starts to remind me to buy.

Clever! ;D

This one will be hot, better than the Argos and other cheapos

Looks hot.

cheers,
may improve mondaymorningitis

Had for a couple of years. A fantastic buy. Identical to the one sold by M&S last year for much more. They seem to put it on offer each year so next year when mine goes out of warranty, I will get one as a replacement for it the old one breaks.

Does it have a waste bin, or do you have to empty out the filter and clean it with every use?

What's a warrenty?

Will it make lattes etc? Or is it just pure black coffee?

Haha I should of sp3ell checked! Thanks bud x

Oh wow, what a bargain!

I would love this but can't justify ditching my Tassimo.

Not bad, seems like it's got great features.

I bought the Cookworks Espresso machine for about this price from Argos at Christmas, so won't be getting this.

Assume it's a blade grinder for this price. Not worth the effort.

I might try and pick one up, I'm, late shift on Thursday.
Think will need to be there early before they are snapped up by the staff and maybe the general public too...

I have had 2 of these bean to cup maker both times the blade in the grinder broke. With 3 year warranty.1st time they did not have the part so they sent me my money back that was after 2 years. 2nd one i got blade went again but this time out of warranty. It does make great coffee and easy to use with a timer.Changed to a bean to cup espresso machine

All the "bean to cup" crowd bear in mid that this is not a true bean to cup machine at all.
Reading the spec it does not appear to apply any pressure to the ground coffee (no lovely oils or crema layer) it just perculates. I have not tried it but i suspect the results will be pretty poor. As someone else has already pointed out this will probably also be a blade grinder, not the tooth type, resulting in a coarse an uneven blend also guarenteed to make pretty poor coffee.

For the office it will be fine and at a great price, just dont get too excited about the quality of joe your going to get at the end.

(P.S. I absolutely love coffee and have both a Krups Nespresso + WMF Bean to cup machine which set me back far far too much...but its worth every penny if your hopelessly addicted and love your coffee)

This is a great machine, but our grinder seized up after 2 years, they sent a courier to collect and refunded the £30, said couldn't replace, worked well whilst it worked, has a timer facility as well to start grinding and brewing at a future time.

You can't polish a ****

People saying it broke after 2 years lol - what do you want for £35???

Whilst I accept its not the same quality, this is about the same cost of 10 large coffees from Costa!

horsepills

You can't polish a ****



.........but for 35 quid, you can roll it in glitter

thanks, never tried one of these, I have the dolce gusto, and pods are quite expensive.can anyone tell me the price of beans and filters for these?

ahh just read theres a permanent filter

will it make less than the full pot? i have a senseo and it only makes half a cup on two cup setting and the bag prices are a joke. tried the refillable filter thing but its way fiddly and doesnt give a decent coffee as i think the water gets pushed through it too quickly.

Perculated coffee....YUK!

This just makes black, filter coffee.

You don't necessarily need to apply pressure to the coffee for a decent cup, provided you've ground the coffee right. Our office coffee machine is a generic filter machine.. we ditched the mesh filter and use paper filters, and a colleague grinds beans fresh each morning and it's still a very very respectable cup of coffee each morning!

My advice ... DON'T!! Aldis have been doing these for a few years. I bought one and not only is cleaning a nightmare which you have to do each time if you use the grinder, but the coffee grounds seem to get everywhere. Not only that but the front panel where the filter is put in is not a tight fit so over a short period of time all the writing under the buttons above disappears. Finally, it does a very rough grind of the beans meaning that you have to use twice as much coffee to get a decent strength. Yes it has a 3 year warranty but that won't help you with the cleaning and grind quality. The concept is excellent and I am always on the lookout for one but that is better made.

Out of interest, is the model in the picture identical to the one you bought a few years ago? While you have some valid points it could be that they've improved the design over the last 2-3 years?
