Delonghi Bean-To-Cup Coffee Machines at Amazon - Save HUNDREDS OF POUNDS

There is another thread about one specific machine, but nobody seems to have noticed that the full range have big discounts, making them far cheaper than you can buy them for anywhere else.

PLEASE DO NOT VOTE THIS COLD JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK THAT BEAN-TO-CUP MACHINES ARE EXPENSIVE!

This thread is for people who actually know what these are and how mauch they cost.

No price in post.

I know the Siemens machines are OK but know nothing of Delonghi. It's an odd sort of 'brand' that seemed just to appear a few years ago.

Anyone used their bean to cup machines? They'll almost certainly be manufactured for Delonghi by another company - anyone know which one?

Delonghi have there own manufacturing plants and have been around for over 50 years in europe and the rest of the world. They are better known in the UK for the Kenwood range of kitchen equipment.

I have the older model of the Prima Donna and it really is very good. The fact you can put the milk back in the fridge when not in use is a really good idea. If you love cappuccino then this will make one at the push of one button in about 90 seconds! I buy my beans from Costa so I get the Costa taste in my own home.

Better still get someone to buy you the machine as a present (as I did)!

All other automatic cappuccino bean to cup machines cost more than the two models shown here.

I very much like the Gaggia I have now, but at some point it will need replacing. Not sure I'd go for Delonghi though.

Can't go wrong with Gaggia. Gaggia Evolution had it over a year ... took a while to get used to...perhaps there will be good deals in Whittards these days people...just a thought, but v v happy with it build quality. Dunno about these bean to cup machines never used them... any good?

Excellent machine for producing a quality cup of coffee.

Don't worry about the instant coffee brigade, they are never likely to understand as they couldn't shop lift this sort of thing while growing up on a council estate surviving on charity/benefits.

They know the price of everything but the value of very little.

lol @ instant coffee brigade...

the rest of the post was way harsh!

A price would have been helpful!

Founded as a small industrial parts-making workshop in 1902, the company incorporated in 1950. Historically a major producer of portable heaters and air-conditioners, the company has expanded to include nearly every category of small domestic appliances in the food preparation and cooking, as well as household cleaning and ironing, segments.

DeLonghi's 2001 acquisition of the struggling British appliance maker Kenwood Limited gave DeLonghi access to Kenwood's Chinese factory. As a result, many of DeLonghi's products are now made in China, while design and engineering remains in Italy.


I should have added 'in the UK'. Nothing here gives me any confidence in their products, though, so it's useful for that - thanks. They've got about as much to do with coffee machines as they have with all their other products - it's just a brand to stick on a machine made in China by the looks of it.

Having looked at the bottom of my Delonghi Perfecta, I can confirm that their coffee machines are MADE IN ITALY.

It's a good job they aren't MADE IN THE UK, as everything we produce in this country is SH*TE.

But..........Fiat!:roll:

These machines are fantastic.
Buy one instead of a 'pod' machine and you will save money in the long run.
The dedicated customer service line is fantastic too.

They must've been selling fast, the price has gone right back up again.

Or Sainsbury - they tend to have a better selection of beans. Tesco seem to sell mainly ground coffee. Sainsbury also do a pretty good selection of 227gm packs at two for £3. Some are good, some less so - a matter of personal taste.

Tesco have their own brand beans for £1.28 (sometimes on offer at £1.00) and also a range of two or three 'Starbucks' beans for £2.70 odd (on offer at the moment).

The Tesco ones are fine.

Fortunately for me, we have a coffee roaster (John Watt & Sons) in Carlisle, so I can get freshly roasted beans in a selection of blends or DIY.

There is also a good mail order site I've used before:

]wredmonkeycoffee.co.uk do a self-select mix of 3 or 7 different 100g packs of coffee beans so you can try a few out fairly cheaply. 3 packs are £8 and 7 packs are £17 including delivery.
