Lowest price this has ever been. I bought it for around £500 earlier this year. 5% Quidco cashback which is pretty decent. Amazon have price matched also but with the cashback this is a great deal. Cheapest it has ever been according to camelcamelcamel.

£379 after cashback can't be beaten!

Seems like a decent discount

My bad. I have updated this to the AO deal which offers 5% cashback so undercuts the Amazon price after cashback!

Beggars belief the amount of people that buy these machines when you can buy equipment at around the fifty pound mark that will give you a much better coffee. Under extracted espresso with some crappy foam on top? No thanks.

Perhaps those people who would be looking at a machine like this would benefit from you actually providing some useful information which might allow them to take an informed decision? I'm looking to buy a machine for my gf as she loves coffee and I know she'd love to be able to make a good coffee at home, but importantly it needs to be efficient. If your method takes 10 minutes to make a coffee whereas this takes 1 minute, that for me would be a strong reason to buy a machine as time does add up.

Care to share rather than be condescending?

Thanks

Why am I being condescending? I'm just pointing out the laziness of people these days. If your girlfriend loves coffee then a bean to cup machine is not the answer; no coffee lover uses them. I don't know any method that takes 10 mins to make a coffee, 5 mins maybe but then I'm prepared to put some time in to get a better output - much like cooking food. I guess it comes down to whether you're happy putting no effort into something and getting a crappy result...there should be no shock there. How about doing some research instead of trusting me? The most important elements in making great coffee are: the quality of the grinder you use, the quality of the beans and far behind those two...the machine or method in which you make the coffee.

Ok. So..we grind beans, squash fruits for juice, maybe make bread by hand and so forth...I think these machines are great and the purpose is to enjoy the free time more.

I guess those extra 2 mins really come in handy eh? You enjoy that free time but don't pretend these machines are anything other than the McDonalds of the coffee world. Cheap rubbish without any quality.

If you use one, you love something but it sure ain't coffee.

I contribute plenty on this site thanks. This is a deals site no? Not a posting deals site.

I'm a coffee lover and I have bean to cup, alongside my Rancilio Silvia + moka pot coffee every morning. I don't know much about the delonghi coffee machines, I have Nivona and before that I had Jura, coffee is just right when the settings are adjusted in the proper way and the coffee beans are fresh. Silvia is just for the weekends, something to play with. But, of course, everyone has different taste. I don't like drip coffee, for example.

Looks like great deal. If I had to choose new machine now, I would go for either the Melitta or the Jura on the ao website, also in the black friday deals. But this Delonghi is cheaper.

Used to use a delonghi bean to cup daily, great for making a decent latte at 6am for work, quick and convenient. Now have a Jura, but my delonghi was reliable and produced coffee which I adjusted to match my taste.

No doubt when I retire (20 years yet) I'll have plenty of time to fettle a perfect coffee manually, but for me, bean to cup is a great compromise of speed v quality and I've often had a coffee in a coffee shop which is sub standard to the Jura output.

Very good price for this, so it's a deal.

Way to defeat your own - definitely condescending btw - argument. This machine has a good grinder and you can select whatever beans you want...

Makes perfectly good coffee as a result and like it or not the convenience factor is a big plus to many. Versus a more manual machine the time saving is far greater than 2 minutes if you need to grind, tamp, froth milk and do the espresso not to mention the cleanup afterwards. Bean there done that.

Obviously if your time isn't worth much then fair enough..

It doesn’t have a good grinder, you don’t know what you’re talking about. It has about 13 steps on the grinder. not nearly enough to fine tune for espresso. It’s fine, you like it, just don’t pretend it’s good or produces good coffee

Woh you are just on here to criticise and pick a fight at a safe distance. This is not helpful at all to anybody because your tone is aggressive and you are just dumping your emotional baggage onto others. I would spend more time examining why you are so angry rather than how to make the perfect coffee. Or maybe you're too lazy to do that. Nobody wants your aggression or demeaning advice. And by the way I actually want an automatic coffee machine because I live in a democracy and I am allowed to choose. And I dont care what you think! People like you hate the fact that people are free to choose what they want to do. Maybe you should go and live in North Korea. Im sure automatic coffee machines are banned there. You'd love it.

And you think I have emotional baggage?! I'm not fighting or aggressive. You haven't picked up on a single thing I've said so the truth must hurt. I understand.

You really dont understand and that is the problem. You are completely devoid of understanding. Which is why so many people are making comments about your attitude. I wont waste my time on you any longer and suggest others do the same.

Shame the thread descended into squabble! Bought this yesterday, delivered today and so far so good! Made a nice flat white (maybe a little too much milk for me) and the espresso tasted pretty good too. A neat one box solution for milky coffee.

Each preset coffee is adjustable to taste or you can modify the "MY COFFEE" option to get your perfect cup. I have this machine at home and work and absolutely love it. Just make sure you buy decent beans!
