Entry level 'proper' coffee machine. New ones have been £150 in the past but currently show at £199. This price for a potentially new one in a bashed up box is an absolute bargain.

That is a good deal (though you'll need to budget for a grinder too - a decent burr grinder could cost a similar amount to the machine)

cant you just add filter coffee to the filter holder?

You can, and you'll get coffee out - but, to me, that tastes worse than using a french press. Nothing like a proper espresso with decent freshly ground beans. You'd get better results using something like ready-ground espresso beans (though still not great, to my taste).

Personally, I'd either get espresso machine + grinder or use a french press, but others may differ! Actually, though, remembered you can get decent manual burr grinders for around £40...

These are nice little machines, but if you really value your coffee then save a bit more and get a bean to cup machine.

buy it ..if that good
i had terrible surts etc see review

I have a Hario Slim, awesome it is, I can grind a double shot espresso in around 4mins and 6 cup Moka 2-3 mins.

@Plane_boy2000 - you have no idea about 'real' coffee. Bean to cup have to store beans in the hopper.... This means they get stale quickly. The grinders in bean to cups are cheap, nasty and incapable unless you spend big wonga.

B2C are ok for convenience but it is well known that the gaggia classic is the starter machine for making real coffee. Yes, you will need a grinder... Something like an iberital mc2, gaggia mdf, rancilio rocky will do.

They can be had for approx £100... That's the price of decent coffee I'm afraid.

Next you'll be telling me that Starbucks, costa and such like do real coffee...

Oh, forgot to add... Cheap decent hand grinders - hario or porlex... I own porlex and its great

Is there a good chance it will be actually new? It clearly states "used"?

I have one and paid a lot more than this. It makes great coffee now that I'm used to it. Takes a few goes and a bit of reading mind. The milk steamer isn't the best but overall it makes a great espresso. Hot.
