This is a fairly poor machine in my opinion. I had a good look at this before going for the equivalent machine produced by Sage.

I saw it in John Lewis, and the build quality looked and felt poor. The tamping and polishing lever produced equally poor results. The manual milk wand was another negative point.

All in all, this is a poor mans Sage Oracle. You’d best going for a Barista Touch which is similar in price but with far better results. Or bite the bullet and get an Oracle Touch, better results in all respects from grind, to tamp, to extraction and milk frothing.

These kinds of machines are not worth the money, you are going to struggle to get a good cup out of it.

Get a decent drip brewer and have a much simpler life, with better coffee.

Thats a pity. Just had a look and sure enough it has the same type of milk frother as my current Delonghi.

Have the Barista Touch on my watch list. It's the milk frothing that separates it for me. I drink my coffee with milk and the Sage are the only machines i've found that can create decent micro foam.

This machine is not much cop, but if you know what you're doing with a good example of domestic espresso machine, you can easily pull excellent espresso.

And that's the point, drip coffee is not espresso. You might as well tell people to drink tea. They are different things.
Basic coffee machine in nice body. Could say that dedica model for £100 do same thing as this overpriced nonsence

The barista express is a fairer comparison.

Nah..can't agree with you. The Elektra is an artisan tool and needs to be used by someone who can use it and is willing to learn - there is so much to get wrong. You are comparing it to pretty much a push button job which is a totally different market. You also haven't factored in the cost of the grinder which brings your suggestion well up and over Sage Oracle prices

I do agree, but £600 can buy a Barista Touch when on offer. ‘Auto Tamp’ would see the leap to the Oracle.

I agree, the Sage Oracle is a minimum fuss solution whilst providing a degree of control over parameters; I like a decent espresso, but not to the point of weighing beans, grinding beans, tamping, polishing, timing extraction, weighing extraction.... tasting, making an adjustment and repeating the whole process. As ‘Mentos’ said, the Sage models easily produce the best automatic foam and is the main reason I’d recommend.

That said, I do appreciate the artisan aspects of the Elektra and can see why they are the answer for some!!
My £250 Sage duo temp is fabulous

It is not. It is a piece of crap. For this money you are well within the price range for a proper starter machine and grinder.

You may get lucky and pull a good shot, you might also get lucky and manage to stretch some milk to a reasonable microfoam for the same cup.

What you won’t be able to do is make good coffee consistently. The grinder is poor and will not grind consistently, especially if you grind a few cups in a row. The pump is also crap so it you will never get consistent pressure.

And because of that you will find it impossible to dial in the machine and grinder so you will get frustrated quickly.

Buying an espresso machine is not like buying a standard kitchen appliance. You are buying a new hobby and you will poor a LOT of bad shots while you start, and that’s with good equipment.

The people who would buy this probably don’t know what they are getting into, if they did they wouldn’t buy it in the first place.

If you really want to get into espresso, make sure you know it is an addictive hobby and it gets expensive quick (I have spent £2.5k over the last 5 years, not including beans) I have also been on two barista courses and can still pour plenty of crap cups.

And most of the time, it is my Sage Precision Brewer that gets used the most. It has never made me a crap cup.

If you really want to start, go to the uk coffee forums and reads some getting started guides. And then buy a second set-up from there and let the old owner give you tips so you can shortcut your way to a good cup.

But for most people, just forget about home espresso.

You really didn't read my comment properly. And then you wasted all that time writing that response.

I'm not 'starting out'. In my time with coffee I've upgraded and then downgraded again. You can go as far as you want with it. This machine is crap. But to do espresso 'properly' to a minimum level, you don't need to spend £2.5k. A Sage Barista model is enough.

And I stay away from the coffee forums, except the Reddit groups which are usually about keeping coffee fun.

Yes I went for the Sage One Touch too with the colour display instead of this.

For this kind of money you can also buy a used real espresso machine and a grinder which will give far better results and teach you about the art of coffee making.
