Undoubtably a good price for this machine, I have to say I wouldn't personally rush to buy it though, so have voted neutral!

I have used a DeLonghi Bar 14 coffee machine for YEARS now, and it produces brilliant results, with a bit of practice. This is basically a similar pumped espresso machine with a filter coffee machine tacked on the side, so all that does is make it a LOT bigger, and adds more to clean up when you are finished, as the machine WILL splatter a bit onto the glassware and the filter side of the machine!

If you are into espresso, filter coffee is NOT something you will want anyway (for a start, French press/ Cafetiere coffee is a far better method for flavour,and is quicker too) - in fact, filter coffee is probably the antithesis of what drinking epsresso is about, tepid dishwater! :-( (If you like tepid dishwater, then this IS your sort of machine!)

I would suggest the cheaper alternative of a Delonghi Bar 14 machine, also sometimes sold as a Caffe Treviso. Looking a bit old now, and arguably not so snazzy, but smaller & cheaper with all the functionality. These have been on great offers in the past, but, typically not so much now! At the moment the cheapest I could find is this one:…508
which comes out at £47.94 delivered. It is a product Currys sell too, and some expert will tell us if they would price match on that to make it cheaper?

Whateveer you buy, beware the non-pumped machines though - if they have a little glass jug, then ignore it! They are both useless, and a very good way to scald yourself! Pod only machines are not something to rush & buy either.
