This is a great price, I was deliberating over paying £270 for it on Amazon a few days ago, then noticed the big price drop today and got straight in there.

Excellent for the coffee purists and amateur baristas out there.
Sorry if this is a duplicate, I didn't want to post it until my purchase was confirmed as dispatched!

Ciao, bella, etc.... Now to find a decent deal on Irish whiskey for my perfect Irish coffees

Moving house soon and already have my coffee area earmarked with one of these top of the shopping list along with the Rancilio Silvia steam wand mod

Same price in Dixons too . . .

Excellent machine @ a cracking price.
Had one of these for a few years paid about £280.00 for it (worth every penny)

If you're proper serious then check out happydonkey.co.uk for the original gaggia baskets too, rather than the dumbed-down Phillips versions more recently bundled

Nice find and great price too. HOT !

For peace of mind....a friend bought a coffee machine from Amazon recently and they have been faultless with after sales service when it went faulty. There was a service centre local to him and when the repair didn't work they replaced it with a brand new one.

Why stop at the steam wand - just buy a whole Silvia!

Yes very true Dj Good man, I'll edit it now
can't believe I ordered a £200 expresso machine, but I just did. Promises to be very good. I had
the cookworks one which I got it for £20 but it broke after less than 1 year, and the coffee was not as good as the one you get in a cafe. I wonder if this one will really make a cafe-standard coffee?
We have this. Got it in the House of Fraser January sale for £130 - they often sell them off. It makes excellent coffee and has been faultless for 3 years now. There are a few Gaggia outletss hops - one in Glashoughton retail park in Castleford I think - which do refurbed machines pretty cheaply.

it will help, but practice does make perfect (or nearly every time)

IMO, the Gaggia is better value, has a greater following in the UK and performs equally well once the wand is switched. I love the look of the Silvia, but can't justify the extra it costs.
Got mine delivered from Italy to UK ffrom a site called Fastshopping. It cost 171.28 Euros incl. delivery. Paid by paypal, goods arrived after about 5 days. Had to translate each page from Italian

Ordered at midday yesterday and just had my second espresso, very nice.
Now off to buy some proper espresso cups rather than dispensing into a shallow bowl!

On balance I'd still go for the Amazon/Dixons deal, I don't like Paypal and don't speak Italian. Well done tho, top machine isn't it!

No you're right, I saw it too and expired this deal - although that doesn't appear to have worked.
well, I got it, and it makes really good coffe. still have to gain a bit more experience though

hope it will last for a while!

thanks!
It is still valid, look at the right hand side of the screen, entitled 'more buying options'
