Maybe you need a Maths class?500/2.50 = 200


Eh?

Initial outlay: £500 -v- £25
Per cup cost*: 14.1p -v- 15.9p (the price per capsule from the last deal on them on HUKD I could find)
* Your "14g per double espresso" is weak - it's a single shot.

Difference in outlay/Difference in per cup= 26389 cups of coffee.

So if you and your partner have between you, say, a healthy 3 cups of coffee a day on average (to allow for having more at weekends, and guests), you'll recover your "saving" in just under a month into your 25th year of ownership.

Is it cheap because they're not selling the capsules anywhere now?

Not sure how these particular coffee machines work with different capsules, but can you use nespresso capsules with this particular machine? Or other capsules even.

They aren't compatible with any non-Lavazza capsules - and not even all Lavazza capsules!

There are currently half a dozen different standards, incompatible with each other.

Inevitably this will thin out, and I suspect Lavazza is not going to be a winner.

I gambled on Nespresso, and I still think they'll make the Last Three, with most supermarkets supporting them and doing own brands, too.

This or a tassimo?

Tough call - the coffee in this will be of a better standard, the pressure in a Tassimo is dire. However, you can pop to your local Co-Op, Tesco Express, order Ocado & Know you'll get Tassimo and Nespresso Pods if you run out. I wouldn't be confident you'll be able to easily get this coffee in 6 months time

I've got similar model for 2.5 years now and coffee is great! Tbh this is the best you can get of this kind machine. My favourite is Delizioso and DekCremoso (decaffeinated)

i too have the same machine but with the milk frother attached, the coffee is excellent, far better than the tasimo i used to have

there are loads of compatible pods on ebay and amazon if they decide to stop making official pods for this

Had a lavazza machine for over 3 years now never had a problem getting pods and usually on offer, so I stock up then

Great coffee maker! thanks for sharing.

Excellent machine (I'm Italian), I bought the model up, Jolie, as it is way quieter than this one which helps when having a cup very early in the morning - the cheaper models, including Nespresso, can be quite noisy...

I got one with milk frother attached for £19.00 while back in B and M. Great machine that doesn't take up much room. My coffee snob husband loves the coffee from it.

The Rossa pod tastes great from this machine,and have yet to find anything from the nespresso range which is as good:(

Great deal, thanks op! Ordered the other half one for Christmas - she’s wanted a coffee machine for ages.

New customers also get 10% off when signing up to their newsletter so got mine for £26.99!

Also possible for on card cashback - my Halifax currently offering 12% cashback at Robert Dyers on Everyday Offers. stacked with new customer would take it under £25

In the long term are you better off with a cheap machine that uses expensive pods or an expensive machine that uses cheaper ground coffee? I may look into one of these things as I keep buying it in the coffee chains at £2.50 a cup😥

Anything is better value than £2.50 in the chain stores. I always think that taste and value are two totally different thing when it comes to these machines!

Too many experts here whom predict the death of Lavazza just as they did . Have one for three years. They market themselves as selling espresso coffee not American style coffee milkshakes for Nespresso lovers. The best pod coffee in the market. You can buy it in their website as well and huge range of taste and aromas.

Is this machine noisy?

To get hot coffee, you have to make sure you start making the coffee as soon as the light stops flashing. You can't go off and come back a few minutes later and turn the knob, it will be luke warm.
Once the boiler is up to temp, it doesn't seem to get maintained and you can see 1100W drop to zero and stay at zero.

I bought a £500 bean to cup machine - £10 for a kilogram of coffee beans which lasts 71 cups (double shots).

Typical pods = £5 for 16.

So over the years you will recoup your money (and have much better coffee!!)

Stevie.Badman6th Nov

I'm ditching my tassimo when I've used up all of the current pods I have. The coffee is great but the amount of thick plastic that is required for each pod is shameful. Nespresso use aluminium pods and their coffee also tastes great

Any suggestions for cheap and good espresso machines?
The only coffee I have..

watch out, price of capsules will screw you over

Does they have cappuccino or latte capsules/ pods? I saw just coffee ones.

Who the hell buys these? Seriously?

It's like people go into a shop and say...I sincerely want you to charge me more money for less coffee and I want to make sure that only a particular type of coffee (pod) will work in it and, as a bonus, please ensure that it produces lukewarm beverages if I leave it for longer than 90 seconds.




I am genuinely curious how the industry managed to pitch these to consumers as a kitchen alternative to actual coffee pots or instant.
Edited by: "stevenfeeney" 10th Nov

Excellent coffee. And at the end of the day, it is the coffee that should dictate which machine you buy, if you're in the market for one.

If you are an occasional coffee drinker, you like choice, and you appreciate the quality, Lavazza every time.

If you drink loads, perhaps a pod machine won't work out the best economically. Yes, it's more expensive than instant coffee, but will hardly break the bank, and will be a significant saving if you're used to buying starbucks/costa/or similar.

I have a similar machine at home, and one on my desk at work as well. I find Nespresso way over rated, and won't touch Tassimo, just like I wouldn't touch mellow birds.

Espresso should be made quick and drunk quick. These machines produce very warm shots with a great crema.
Edited by: "Stud" 10th Nov

Tempted but we have a waitrose round the corner and get free coffee with any purchase... so not sure I would use this much.

Ordered, thanks OP.

Also, It's £25.49 plus a few quid for pods, I don't think that outlay warrants all the irate replies, but hey ho...

Worth a shot for me, not in too often and don't drink too much coffee, the odd pod will suffice.

You might be right but the quality of coffee matters too. I wouldn't buy such an expensive machine personally.

Didn't realise your nationality automatically qualified you as a coffee connoisseur 🙄

I'd like to upgrade from a Tassimo but keep getting put off by the manual aspect of measuring how much water? With the Tassimo - it reads the barcode and measure the right amount - I can walk away while its doing it. How do you know with these machines? Do you have to hold the button in until you guess the amount?
