Good price. But why not try a Moka pot?


Because it tastes nothing like espresso from a machine!

Use decent coffee and it will taste superior to anything out of a Tassimo.
A pack of Lavazza is similar in price, or cheaper, than the 16 pack Tassimo pods and depending on how strong you like your coffee, you should get 16 cups or more from 250g of ground beans.

Quality machine had it since last January and never let me down. Great price
Great machine, same pump as the 3x more expensive and doesn't make the terrible noise they do.

Same price in Argos, but of course no 2nd year warranty.
Quiick question for anyone that knows - Need to replace a Tassimo that daughter has taken to Uni, is this:-

1 better taste wise
2. more expesive or more econocmical to run (using ground coffee from supermarket)?
3. Would the dearer model from Argos be better - also on promotion at £120 ( reduced from £149)

I appreciate that the 2* review is because John Lewis werent helpful when machine broke.

Great machine, I’ve had it a year replacing a nespresso. Answer is yes to both the above q’s :).

I would always buy for John Lewis there after sales are so good. I had the this machines bigger brother and it broke just out of the 2 years but John Lewis sorted a solution.
Been looking for something to replace my tassimo. Anyone think this will be cheaper to run with better coffee?
Anyone know if these are good for larger cups (or mug) of coffee or is this only really for espressos?
All espressos are small drinks, to make a long drink you mix the espresso with hot water and or hot milk.

It has a milk frothing wand. In order to fit a bigger mug u might just need to take out the drip tray to accommodate the size.
Good introduction to espresso machine coffee the portafilter will give you nice results from pre-ground coffee but remember not to tamp to heavily, for tips on coffee machines check out Seattle Coffee Gear's website and YouTube channel.
Would love a bean to cup, any suggestions at a decent price?

ground coffee is much cheaper than pods (and far better for the environment!)
Went for Argos because I had a £5 voucher. Looking forward to good coffee in 2018!

You can use this to make espressos, cappuccinos, lattes, Americanos etc. If you want drip coffee then you'll need a different type of coffee machine. This one is for espresso based drinks. Hope this makes sense?

Get it from John Lewis. Their customer service is better than Argos and you get an extra year guarantee. These machines are better than Tassimo. You can get better coffees and also buy coffee beans and grind your own.

So you don't use pods.

So you don't use pods.

Not the type of plastic pods that you use in Tassimo and Nespresso machines etc. You can use ESE Coffee pods though. johnlewis.com/dua…489

Had an espresso machine for years, get Italian roast beans, and grind them yourself. it will be on par if not superior to your favourite coffee shop.
just make a shot from theese type of machines, if you make too much, the coffee will taste horrible. Then put your shot into your drinking cup and add hot water.
Lidl do some decent Italian roasts, you want good strong roasts for americanos etc.

Tastes better to be honest.
Higher pressure and gets much more of the flavour.
Though much more fuss.
Both are handy to have around.
Bit the bullet.
Cheers.
Ordered, thanks.

Also same price at Argos but OOS in a lot of places, same with Amazon. But obviously you’ll miss out on extra year guarantee.
Decent price for good brand and seller. As mentioned already, these taste better than pods at same price (buy ground Lavazza or similar quality/price) and are also etter for the environment. Pods produce too much plastic waste, totally unnecessary.

I bought myself this for Christmas hughes.co.uk/pro…ria. It was a bit cheaper in Black Friday. Dud not want a Delonghi and am very happy with it
I have this machine and it leaks from the base, can't return it as had it ages now. Anyone else come across the same issue?

I did with another model, the rubber seal on the bottom of the water tank leaked. Oddly the Scultrura machne I have now has a similar design, but it doesn't leak!
This machine is usually around £70 anyway so not much of a deal?

Does anyone know if this is true? Seems a good machine as several forum members have confirmed, but, annoying tgat retailers try and pull the wool. Have reserved one at Argos as had to use up vouchers.

I was pretty sure but I checked which? for their typical price anyway and it’s £70. You probably won’t get it for cheaper though so I guess it is a good deal.

FYI to anyone who is bothered about which’s reviews, they don’t give it great marks...an extra £20 would get you a Best Buy motivo ecc220b if that’s of any use to anyone!

Thank you. I want a nice cup of coffee but not espresso. Currently use aeropress for single mugs or caffetieres. I was hoping this would be good making a mug of coffee too without needing to boil the kettle and adding water which kind of forests the object.
Perhaps maybe getting these bean to cup machines then...

You’re welcome. Bean to cup machines are often espresso machines too so might not be what you’re looking for. If the machine has a milk frothing wand it tends to be for espresso based drinks. It sounds like you need a filter coffee machine. Here is a link with some examples. Can you see the difference?
johnlewis.com/bro…il5

You can also get bean to cup filter coffee machines so if you want one, here is an example.

If you’re not in a rush, ALDI usually bring out a bean to cup filter coffee machine that’s quite cheap. Hope this helps?

Thanks for looking and sharing the which report, as I don't subscribe to them, their reviews seem very thorough. Pity about the recommended ones being obsolete.

For sharing P:)

thanks again yes, that's the sort of bean to cup coffee Ive been looking at as it says it can make different size cups (or mugs) of coffee. Drip coffee machine would be useful if I have guests but worried day to day, it would take longer to brew a single cup.

I was hoping to have a machine like this one with an external filter/handle thing you twist on so I can easily swap/choose the coffee as my other half drinks decaff.
