This seems like a decent, "proper" (pump driven with grouphead/basket) coffee machine for those wanting a nicer coffee without the environmental impact of non-reusable capules.

The main pump is 15 bar, it seems to review well as a "no frills, decent machine". Had a hunt around for price and this seems about the best (inc £4.95 delivery in the price, there's pick-up options if you're closer).

Wait for Lidl to do their Silvercrest version with 3 year guarantee. Their machine is excellent for the price and has a gauge on it. I think its due to appear soon as its been some months since they did it last, and they cycle their products every 3-5 months

I have previous year silvercrest coffee machine and it's amazing. Couldn't say a bad word about it. This years model had been recalled due to problems that may cause electric shock.

I was in Lidl the other day, there was a notice a particular model of that Silvercast machine has been recalled due to risk to electric shock.... be warned.
Pretty sure this will be a vibration pump so calling it “proper” is a real stretch.
Thanks for posting @llamaalarmallama we have added this to the Highlights section
Pods me
I used this model at a holiday home over the summer and it was tons quieter and faster than the eight year old dualit beast I wrestle with each morning at home. It's nice & small too & while not drop dead gorgeous it's nicely enough styled....
Looks very similar to the DeLonghi one I have and similar price point. It's decent for the money but couple of things worth considering:

You can't grind your coffee too fine otherwise the machine will choke and drip coffee which will result in nasty over extraction. These machines don't have the same oomph as more expensive ones. If you buy regular pre ground espresso it can be too course and under extract the flavour. There is a happy medium to be found but takes getting used to.

If you use the steam wand alot it can run out of steam quite quickly and take 2 or 3 reheat to get your textured milk.

Ordered and the missus likes her hot chocolates so the steam wand will get some hammer occasionally, noted, ty

Yeah but they don't pay their taxes - but it's cheap - but only until other (local?) traders are put out of business and then they have a monopoly - and suddenly, you no longer have any choice!

How would you get the correct grind coffee for this machine? Would you have to buy a grinder separately and try lots of different grinds?

Was going to say the same. I think it comes round every November for the coffee stuff, if my memory recalls well enough. So this should be available then also for around £40-50 plus 3 year warranty. Just make sure to keep the receipt and Lidl customer service is spot on.

Better to have a grinder yes then you can experiment with the best coarseness plus you get the freshest coffee. You should be able to feel the texture of the grains between your fingers, should be sandy but not too powdery. How much pressure you tamp it with also makes a difference. Its just practise/experience.

No, you can buy pre ground coffee in stores, Waitrose has a good selection or you can order from somewhere like Pact. You don't need to experiment with grind sizes with espresso. It's always finely ground, you can alter extraction with the amount of water and temperature.

I know, but you need to BUY PODS to use the machine! And the pods are not cheap!

No you dont, you use ground coffee like illy for example. No pods involved. Just the ground coffee you put in the bowl, and the hot water pushed through by the pump.

Why would you comment on something you know nothing about? And even reply trying to further your non existent arguement. If you like to drink espresso in particular, this machine is a very good price.
£68, now.. tempting

"I don't have a clue, can't read and now, confronted with my ignorance, will just blandly bash/diminish any other opinion so I can't be wrong" niiice

It's faster than waiting for a kettle to boil.

I'll go over the steps slowly as... comprehension seems to not be your ally:

1) Turn on machine
2) scoop of ground coffee (you buy it in bags in a supermarket for info)
3) twist basket into machine
4) wait about... 20-30 seconds for the "i'm ready" light and pour espresso.

You can either stick a sugar in that and call it done or... yes "fluff" with things like adding milk and stirring that are a total pain and genuinely ARE much easier when using instant clearly...

I know what espresso is and how to make it and I just use a little pump! We should be allowed to express our opinions - an attribute of all civilised societies/persons. Don't be trapped in your perceived wisdom.

I wasn't.
You jumped in twice to have a whine at it to be proven completely without the first idea.
Once that was cleared up you went to a tedious little minded fallback.

I'm not sure how someone who can't read basics feels qualified to talk about "perceived wisdom" but... ok.

Not having a major moan either but you persisted in TRYING to find fault, to be shown provably without an idea each time
