Got excited about the price until I realised it was a pod machine Can't argue it's a good deal but not for me.
We used to have a mio modo (more basic one) but still uses same pods. At 20-21p per capsual for compatible or about 30p for original it's "ok".

Bought a bean to cup as we've calculated it'll take us about 2-3 years to break even vs not buying new unit.

The real insentive is that we save 4000-5000 pods of unrecylable plastic, very few pods are recycle friendly.

I has the dolce gusto ones in the past, this is 'better' imo. I find nespresso best of the lot becuase of the variety available.

But, reading my posts above I'll give you rest of my info ie cost breakdown-
Avg 4 cups a day (2 people).
4000 pods over 2-3 years.

21p each = £850 (approx)
Starbucks or similar = £12,000 (£3 a cup).

A machine £100 or £400 doesn't really matter too much on comparison.

Things I considered-
Risk of microplastics in yourself and environment,
None recyclable pods,
Choice of taste,
Freedom of purchases, (deals/sales)
Convience (ie maintenance, speed, services)

Summary-
Bean to cups should be the standard.
Pods imo feels like cheap printers with expensive ink cartridges.

Had this model for a few years now and one of the best coffee machines I’ve owned. Best priced pods usually available on Amazon usually round £19 for 96 otherwise John Lewis, Sainsbury’s or Tesco. Great tasting coffee a bargain at that price.

Does this take the Nespresso pods?

Don't they do a sort of "teabag" - although they also put plastic in them as well probably.

I've tried all sorts.
Tea bag type don't work as well (leak, breaks down after few shots) unfortunately.
You can get recappable foils (ie make your own pod) but again they are not as good as factory made and pain to use.
Don't forget it's only 21p per cap, so effort needs to be zero/minimal to make it worthwhile vs bean to cup.
One thing that often gets overlooked is the possibility of microplastics ending up in your coffee.

Not sure how possible this is but if so it's obviously another reason to avoid pods.
Amazing price, we have this machine and its great, only downside is pod availability not as good as Nespresso in terms of you can't get compatible pods from Aldi for example.

Unfortunately, most bean to cups normally cost around £500...the best flavour coffee pods I've manged to find is the original americano dolce gusto pod.

Be patient and wait for a Delonghi Esam 2600 to come back on offer. About £280 currently but I got mine from AO for £150ish when on offer, using a manufacturer cash back deal and Quidco. Using beans will soon pay for itself versus the cost of pods for a given quality and of course less waste. I know proper Nespresso pods are recyclable but why create that much waste to begin with?

Where do you order them from please?
Great coffee, good find
Im not sure it is a great find deal or not.
If the pods arent recycable the product should simple be banned. End of.
I get that its cheap but it should at least not kill a planet ffs.
I just buy these machines when they come with 100 pods, then throw them in the bin after, and buy the next deal! It's the cheapest way and Recycling is a con... if it had shredded Paper, we wouldn't recycle it, if it had buckle wrap.... cannot recycle... any food on it? Cannot recycle... and most people do not wash the plastic. Couldn't recycle boxes as they'd have tape on it.... COULDN'T RECYCLE ANYTHING!

It is a massive con, your Orange bin is just the Black bin, it is not being recycled.

This is a great breakdown, however, since you’re taking that stance, bean to cup machines are generally poor, especially a £400 machine. That’s the price of a good grinder alone.

You pay for convenience, even bean to cup machines are huge compromises for the sake of convenience.

You could do your bit by burning more fossil fuels so that they can't be polymerised.
Just got one and prefer it to nespresso.

Pod machines are used purely for convenience id imagine? I personally use a bean to cup because I like variety of roast and normally drink several cups in a sitting.

What beans do you like to use?

I've got 2 of these one at home and one in the office (in 2 colours) literally best machine out there bar a proper bean to cup.
Pods are in Waitrose and have best selection (oro is strong and great) there which is handy when they do £8 off £40. Milk frother takes some experimenting but works well. Pods can be recycled just empty and wash out. Great machine ...just buy it
Capsules. And for that reason I’m out. Not voting either way.

I'm not convinced you'll get a bean to cup machine for less than £250-300 tbh - I was just after an espresso machine!

I'm looking at this one for £139 at the moment, we don't drink espresso so this suits us

Yes, it's a full cup, americano is just a double expresso with hot water (or in the case of a pod, coffee flavoured hot water).

The reason to go bean to cup, is you can explore the world of all the different beans on amazon, and you're not locked into whatever they stick in the pod.

Horses for courses, a proper espresso machine is a right faff.

French press with freshly ground beans is a pretty decent and cheap alternative ... As is the stove top mocca option.

Ive had this for about 5 years and served me well to now. Tastes better than costa imo. Can now buy pods from asda, morissons and tesco and not just waitrose like it was when i first got it. Id buy this again!
Can be used for hot chocolate, just add it straight to the milk then froth it works for cold milkshakes too
