Best coffee machine I’ve EVER brought +++++
Had this 18months and it's brilliant.
The only problem with it is that once brewed it only stays hot for 45 mins of so before you've got to reset the heating timer.

From what I’ve been reading online, blame the EU. which.co.uk/new…73/


Glad to read positive comments as I’ve ordered one. Also the Melitta Cremio II Frother as it is on offer at Costco.

45mins should be more than enough. Make a smaller jug to start and make a fresh brew if you need more. No one wants stewed coffee!

You don't want to keep heating coffee. Get a thermal bottle and transfer it.
I have the "LOOK® Therm Timer" Melitta filter coffee maker, that has an insulated stainless coffee jug, which keeps the coffee hot for hours. Recommended.
Need to purchase a costco membership to buy it?

It’s designed for enough to drink straight away not keep hot all day like filter coffee makers, it’s between a coffee maker and a stupidly expensive bean to cup maker

You can also buy the £15 online only membership. From past experiences with warranty claims, I try and buy all electrical appliances through Costco.
HOT! if you already have a grinder the Melitta AromaElegance @ £84.99 might be a better buy,
costco.co.uk/App…968

European Coffee Brewing Centre approved. Presumably better temperature regulation and water distribution, also has a timer function that can be set for wake-up.

I'm not sure which one to buy, the convenience of the built in grinder seems like a big plus.

Doesn't have the grinder. Already have a Melitta brewer, but having an integrated grinder set to a timer would be so much more convenient on a morning before work.

I have an Aroma Elegance. It's a great machine, but the thought of being able to set a bean to cup filter machine to grind and brew half a litre of coffee ready for the moment I'm up and ready in a morning is very appealing.
Expensive Drip drip coffee machine when you take into consideration the coffee grinder which is a bonus & the £15 Costco membership making it £105, I bought a drip drip coffee machine from curry's 3 years ago its still working & used on a daily basis and a snip @ £25 plus £4 delivery = £29.00 now i call that a proper bargain.

Thats Quite right re-heating coffee kills the aroma of freshley brewed coffee,so yes transfer to a thermal flask.

It's not expensive and you get what you pay for. A £29 machine that was built to be a £29 machine is not comparable to a £100 machine that was built to be a £100 machine. Melitta machines are some of the best, the cheap no brand rubbish from Currys doesn't invalidate this deal.

Looks like a great deal. Heat added.

I'm still unsure which type of coffee machine to buy.

Some of the all in one bean to cup machines look great, but I also see a lot of complaints. Either the grinder is poor or the frother stops working etc.

So I was thinking that something like this might be better and then just buy a milk frother separately.

Does anyone here have experience of both? i.e. this type of coffee maker and an all in one machine.

Currently got a Tassimo and not a fan of it anymore. And instant powder packs are driving me nuts 😄

You won't make espresso based drinks with one of these. A filter coffee with foamed milk isn't a cappuccino, it's a filter coffee with some very quickly disappearing milk froth. This machine will make very good filter coffee. You might put milk or sugar in it if you're some sort of heathen but that's it. If you're wanting espresso based milk drinks look elsewhere.

Sorry Pokey. I was in a rush when I replied to this comment earlier.

Thanks for clarifying.

I've actually gone down a coffee knowledge binge fest over the last few days to figure out what I want. I've opened up a Pandora's box.

I at least have a basic understanding of it all now, but I keep changing my mind as to what to get.

Automatic machines look good in theory as they do everything, but they're also prone to breaking and I haven't found any company that gives a warranty longer than two years. It's almost like they know it will break at some point.

At this point, I'm leaning towards a separate coffee burr grinder with a Gaggia Classic Pro or Safe Espresso machine. Then perhaps buy a French press for when I want a regular coffee.

As you know, there's always pros and cons. A common complaint is that the built in burr grinder in all in one machines is limiting and doesn't let you grind coffee in many different ways. For example, only three espresso settings and no option for coarser grinding.

Simpler espresso machines seem to be really easy to fix and it's easy to find spare parts. In contrast, I've seen many people saying that they've bought automatic machines and the company is always out of stock of the deacaling tablets that need to be used to clean it. And the machine has been set up to only work with those specific tablets.

I'd rather avoid that route and buy something that will last for years and one that can be fixed if necessary.

Thanks again. I'm a total beginner with all of this, but as many of these machines are expensive, I'm trying to make the right choice as I'll probably be using it for years.

If it breaks after 2 years it’s 90 quid down the pan but look how much you’ve saved from buying Costa etc. It’s not a massive investment!

Separate grinder and espresso machine seems your better option, as long as you're prepared to spend at least the same amount on your grinder as on your pump machine.

You could also think about a Sage\Breville machine, like the Barista Express or even better, the Barista Pro. Coffee forums don't like them because they're full of snobs but a Sage machine will last a good long time if they're cared for and produce espresso far beyond their asking price. Sages should be flushed twice and descaled once every month, don't wait for the machine to ask.

And don't believe anything you hear about needing specific descaler; it all does the same thing and Kilrock is the best I've bought (you can find it in Home Bargains and Aldi these days).

It's not about money. I'm not in the poor house, although I may be if I end up buying something like a Sage Oracle Touch

I'll still buy coffees when I'm out, but I'll go stir crazy if I keep drinking that awful powder latte stuff.

As Pokey said, I'm primarily looking for an Espresso machines for capacinos, lattes etc. I would like the ability to make regular coffee for friends and guests too, and this does tick that box, but guests might have to stick with instant coffee for now.

It's why I'm looking at automatics and espresso machines.

Thanks for the advice.

The mid-range Sage models such as the express, pro and touch, have been on my radar. I've seen some people complain about the grinder in the express and how limiting it can be, which is why I looked at the Sage burr grinder.

Like you say, in coffee forums, a lot of people appear to be perfectionists, so some of these criticisms perhaps aren't warranted. Certainly, coming from pod coffee, these annoyances perhaps won't raise their head for a few years.

Out of interest, what so you have yourself?
