Not sure how good it is, but for 1/2 price (£30) seems a good deal. Fair few on the shelves in Chelmsford.

Would be interested on any opinions on this machine.

Been looking for a new machine as our Russell Hobbs espresso machine has stopped frothing (tried descaling, but no joy).

Was tempted by the £70 Delonghi at John Lewis, etc, but not convinced we;ll use it too often... so £30 seems a better price.

Will pop into a big Sainsburys on way to work in the morning, see if they have any.

Heat the milk in the microwave (save the faff), 200ml milk to a double shot of espresso. Start off with M&S Italian roast beans. You will be using it all the time Of course you need a quality BURR grinder that will give you a small enough grinder (or you can just buy the ready ground version of the M&S beans). If you make an americano pull the espresso shot, and then add in hot water form the kettle (regardless of what the mahcine instructions say) Cannot comment on this machine, but i have got a few friends into espresso based coffees, never look back!

What if you want a cappuccino?
None in the High Heaton (Newcastle) Sainsburys store... popped in on way to work this morning.
I’ve been told the “Reduced to Clear” means it may be a store specific clearance, just checked in Ashton and they’re still on full price (£60) and have never been reduced to £30

Got mine up and running today. Do you find the coffee passes through the beans quite quickly? Almost feel like it's not getting the most out of the ground. Although I need to experiment with different beans as have always used a cafetiere before this...
Make sure you tamper your coffee. Put the coffee in the holder and then use the flat end of the coffee spoonto press it down. You then get the full strength of your coffee. Also I wait until the green light comes on before I start to draw the water through.

Cheers.

Have tampered the coffee, can't press it any harder. Think I just need to experiment a bit more, makes a decent coffee, just nothing which is espresso strong.
