Can't get a direct link to the offer - from homepage go to reconditioned units and on the left hand side about 1/2 way down in RED is "ALSO CHECK OUT" - click that to see the special offers currently - £99 for either of the above machines with 120 coffee pods (these seem to be about £5+ per pack of 20 on the interweb)

Also come fully guaranteed for 24months as per brand new ones (Evolution is £165 on their website) so no real difference, from what I have read in reviews elsewhere it seems their returns policy is very good if there ever was a problem as well. Appreciate there are cheaper machines out there - I recently bought the one on offer from Aldi for £34 - ended up taking it back after 4 weeks when the seals broke on it - the Evolution has some very good reviews - the Cubika some not so great ones on Amazon so might be worth looking into yourself before deciding what you want but personally can't wait to get hold of a decent machine and make me some proper coffee

Also by going for the special offer it seems thats the way to get the 24month warranty - otherwise recon units only get 12mnths.... Delivery to where I am in the UK has cost £5 - can't say for sure if its the same everywhere in the UK (would imagine so?)

A very good deal for excellent machines.

I purchased the cheapy espresso machine from Lidl about six months ago and must say that it really is excellent. Beautiful crema and it doesn't scald the coffee.

Seems a good deal to me, even if it is a recon, as Gaggia must be one of the best coffee machines in the world.
I'm tempted by this 89 quid jobby...... dont know if it'll link but here goes...

Careful with the Cubika - check it out on Amazon first as the erviews were not all great - although granted most of the issue's were with the on/off button and would be covered by the warranty its still a hassle sending it back and forth and being a coffee fiend I hate not having my machine to hand - hence I have gone for the Evolution.... 2/3 week now - if anyone wants me to let them know what its like by all means drop my a PM and I will answer soon as it lands and I plug it in !!!

I got the Cubika from the Gaggia website over a year ago, it was a very similar offer as this one. I had to have 4 of them before it worked properly, but after that I have had no problems

Both good Machines but better of with the Classic. Though all make great coffee. I've got a Classic and A Pure at home. Allways need a spare when one needs serviced
