This beast of a machine gives all you need for a one touch cappuccino experience.
Yes its alot to spend on a machine but its amazing coffee.

The RRP is £700 but is usually available for £499.

I submitted a price match request to JL for currys. They have adjusted the price online and instore. Let's face it... we'd much rather buy from JL.

Would you recommend this vs a £100 espresso machine where you diy the beans and frothing?
I.e. is it worth the extra?

Does it need servicing? If so, does it have to be done by a professional?

Heat for the deal but seriously.....!!

Got one of these for Xmas, great machine would recommend to all looking for the RoysRolls cafe experience in your own home... If only it made cakes as well!

But should anything go wrong John Lewis offer a fair better service. They will go out of their way to sort out it.

Only for the convenience and gadgetyness. Bear in mind all of the de'longhis make the same standard of coffee, the extra is for the display, the material it is wrapped in and like this one for auto milk which is a blessing and a curse due to the cleaning needed compared to diy frothing.

Good find.

Not expensive really. If you buy a coffee a day which many do, it is actually not that much money. I mean, a coffee costs around £2 whereas this is under £400 so 200 days you have broken even if you just take into account the machine. oOf course there is the milk but who doesn't but milk? And there are the beans but let's face it, beans are not that expensive.

+1 for b1g1an.

I've got a Delonghi B2C machine without the milk functionality. My preference is to heat milk up in the microwave and then add the coffee. If you want an uber froth just use a bodum latteo milk frother which makes the creamiest froth I've had - much easier to clean etc. Note, my brother had a high end Delonghi B2C machine and the output is identical - it's all down to the beans really.

I'd get this one and save the £120:

If you bring a coffee to work in a flask, then a good analogy, otherwise peeps get Coffee when they are out and about so this machine would not help. No need to justify anything, If you can afford it, want it, then buy it. You're a long time in the ground

Cold as currys have it cheaper

Was v.interested in that Bodum...until I looked at it. You need to beat the milk (with a plunger) 60-90 times to froth it. Is life not too short for that?

+1 to you.

I have the ESAM4200 and have had it for many years without any problems other than it not being as hot as I'd like nowadays. It helps to leave a mug under the machine when turning it on for the cleaning cycle to 'pre heat' the mug and not to fill the reservoir with very cold water from the tap in winter. Best make coffee from room temperature water.

The 'manual' milk frother works great, I can't imagine using a milk reservoir for anything other than parties and even then I'm not sure it's worth the extra for me anyway.

Heat added, it's a great price on this model but the savvy coffee drinker might prefer the smaller brother ESAM4200 instead.

How often does someone buy a coffee outside, to drink at home? How many people take a machine like this out with them, so they can drink a coffee elsewhere? This ia good deal, compared to the normal price, but justifying it in the way you have, and dismissing the extras like beans, milk, water (minor though that is), sugar maybe, and also the electricity and servicing charges? Nah, just enjoy it for what you want, you do not need to defend how you spend your money.

Voted hot, because if I wanted one, I'd get it and it is a very good price..

Not expensive when compared to high end Jura bean - to - cup machines.

Edited by: "phoopha" 30th Dec 2015

If you brew at home and want to take it with you, I really recommend the Contigo mugs. Hold heat for around 4 or so hours and a great non spill mechanism for drinking whilst on the move

Stupidly tempted but one reviewer on Curry's says he is on his fifth machine in under a year. If I pay this for a simple machine I expect it to last for many years.

I agree that the ESAM4200 makes just as good coffee but I think the improved controls and the automated cappuccino system is worth paying the extra £120 for.

I've had my PrimaDonna Esam 6600 for 6 years & it's been great. All the bits come apart for easy cleaning & other than having to replace the jugs every 2/3 years as they stop frothing properly - they're £30 new - it's been flawless.
I'd buy this in an instant at this price.

Out of stock, but still available in Currys for the same price.

I use Cravendale milk (skimmed or semi), pump it for around 10-15 seconds and it's done - longer and it can go too thick!!! You'll spend alot longer cleaning the Delonghi machine and I doubt the results will be as good.

I tried a Nespresso Aeroccino and that is nowhere near as good as the bodum latteo - again, more of a faff cleaning it.

Here is a picture of my coffee from this morning (microwave milk plus espresso):

http://i1066.photobucket.com/albums/u404/bisoner71/IMG_20141230_120638_zps204a86ac.jpg

70 seconds heating milk in microwave and then around 30 seconds to dispense the espresso (machine takes a similar time to do it's rinse/heat up cycle).

My £600 Jura in the loft ! Im just as happy with my £80 Nespresso (19 bar ) and free milk creamer from JL , just shame can't grind the beans

It looks quite tall in the picture, can I assume you can get a proper mug under this of a thermos mug?

utter carp but good price...

My £190 Saeco bean-to-cup machine has been used daily for 2 years with no probs, apart from the green led failing (making the screen hard to see - but I know the machine off by heart now).

Would highly recommend a bean-to-cup, and this looks like a good 'un.

The best fun is learning to froth the milk yourself - took me a couple of months as the built-in panarello wand was pants so I removed it.

times we live in . . . . you can get a return fight to Java for less off peek and drink as much as you like. But I guess that's another story to tell your wired friends.

That's only your second comment since joining 2 weeks ago and it's another stupid one. Try posting your own deal instead of trolling other's with smart alec nonsense.

Nice glass by the way

10-15 seconds seems do-able, had visions of a solid minute pumping a plunger first thing in the morning and that didn't appeal. Tried the Nespresso Aerolator and I agree, too much faff to mess around with it too often. I think the Bodum is around the £20 mark so might consider it.

I might try an old bodum coffee jug in the meantime, I'm wondering of the principle is the same (forcing milk through at pressure to break it down???)

A Gaggia Classic would wipe the floor with this B2C machine. Have a read on the coffee forums not very well regarded at all.
But if you want an easy ok-ish coffee it's a good price.
