Ive had two of these

1st one lasted 2 years worked amazing and i used it every single day making maybe 5-10 coffees a day until I left it on all day and the coffee tasted bad after

so I bought another and the coffee tasted bad when i got it

so i changed the coffee twice and the water milk and sugar and nothing would fix it
even if you make a drink with just plain water (no milk sugar or coffee)you can see bits in the water and a oil on the top

which was strange because it was the same with the first one
over all when it works its great
so i recommend only getting one of these from somewhere they give easy refunds in case you get a problem one (e.g amazon)
I had one & it was great for the 6 months it worked. Pretty sure i only paid £59 at sainsburys too.
I have one and it's great machine !!
Only paid £40 from Sainsbury just before Christmas as they were reduced to clear
I am totally against this kind of machine. The quality will not be even close to an espresso at the bar and it's a pain to maintain. Why don't people just use a Moka pot?

Moka pot coffee is completely different to espresso, even espresso from a budget machine like the Delonghi here, which will produced a reasonable espresso.

I voted cold because there are machines just as capable for less money.

Can you link me to a few of the machines you refer to ta.
How about this for a start - Currys (new but damaged box) EC 271 and this is a more up=market model for £68 delivered. ebay.co.uk/itm…334
I agree Moka pot tastes different from a proper espresso you drink at a proper bar in Italy, but to have a half decent espresso you'd have to spend at least £200-300. While with £20-30 you get a very good Moka pot that will give you a delicious coffee, provided you use a good quality arabica.

Well, I disagree. All these machines require a modicum of skill to get the best results. Spending £300 or more is no guarantee of excellent results. Would a skilled barista be able to produce a better espresso with a £300+ machine compared to an entry level one from a good brand? Maybe, but the same barista could also produce a very satisfying espresso with a decent low cost machine. We can all enjoy a well selected £4 bottle of wine but it most likely won't be as good as a good £50 bottle but the key word is 'good'. Life is all relative. For someone used to instant coffee, an inexpensive espresso machine will be a revelation. Don't put people off being able to discover things like this with such comments about having to pay big bucks for an acceptable espresso.
