I bought this from the Robert Dyas Black Friday sale.

Not being a regular coffee drinker I wasn’t sure what I was getting, and I wish I hadn’t bothered (Although I may have missed the obvious when ordering)

It’s not just like pod in then hit a button for a coffee, it’s a switch to release the hot water and you stop it when you’re happy with the amount of water.

Wasn’t what I expected, and a mate said it’s more like an espresso machine than what I expected.

Just for info, hope it helps someone.

Here Here...those Pods are Sickly Syrupy immitation Coffee....Yuk!!!


No they are not. Genuine Lavazza pods are 100% Arabica and contain 7 grams per capsule (Nespresso only 5 grams). I have just got rid of my Nespresso machine and replaced with a Lavazza (not this model though). I also have a built in bean to cup machine (Miele) and the coffee is equally good. The advantage of a capsule machine over bean to cup comes down to variety in my opinion. Not everyone likes the same taste so once you have your bean hopper full with your choice of coffee bean it’s tough if you (or guests) want something different.

Don’t confuse the Lavazza coffee with Dolce Gusto as it could not taste more different.

Official Lavazza capsules are available at most supermarkets (though not all the range) unlike Nespresso and typically you can buy for £3 for 16 capsules (less than 19p per cup). This Lavazza model costs £30 whereas a bean to cup machine £200 upwards. Assuming a 7g grind then you get about 142 cups from a typical 1kg bag of beans so about 7p a cup. So you save 12 per cup but with a £130 price difference you won’t see a cost benefit until you reach your 1100th cup !!

If you go for a built in machine you are looking at significantly more initial outlay too.

48 pods for £20.. ouch!!!
Lavazza pods regularly down to £3 for 16 at John Lewis, Asda and Sainsburys. Standard price about £4 for 16 or 25p a cup. Produce a good espresso.

These pod machines work out far more expensive in the long run
Better to have one that uses ground coffee which works out at 5p a cup and tastes better too
I have nesspresso capsules. Will these work? Thanks.

My husband is a coffee bore and loves the coffee from this machine. We also have a filter coffee machine which he never uses since got this one.

Wasteful

Seen better
Yep it's an espresso maker, yep it uses pods, yep it uses more expensive pods than the more freely available ones like nespresso. But, Lavazza do make good coffee, and these make good espressos. We have a Lavazzo modo mio in our campervan - much less mess than using grounds, and we get generic pods from ebay. But I wouldn't use it as a day to day machine for all the reasons folk have mentioned.

For the machine it's a good price so heat added - just be sure you know its right for you.

Imitation coffee?
Been using a lavazza pod machine for at least 5 years. The pods are on sale in at least one supermarket everything I buy them and as well as being cheaper than Nespresso they taste far superior. Genuinely don't understand the comments on this thread.

Spot on my coffee drinking friend !

I’ve had a tassimo, I’ve had a dolce gusto, and having seen a demo in John Lewis I’ve purchased a Lavazza machine (not this one) as the coffee is fantastic, leaves the others in the dirt!
I bought the lever action style one that was on offer at John Lewis with the milk frother and the coffee quality is superb. Be wary of the cheaper compatible pods though as I bought some from amazon (150 for £22 with 4.5 star reviews) and the quality wasnt even close
The machine is cheap, the pods are more expensive than coffee, but the highest cost is to the planet - these are so wasteful it is unreal.

There's a lever instead of a button? OH THE HUMANITY!!! WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN?!

Good grief...

Not being a coffee drinker myself, it's impossible for me to know the level of water to add to my own let alone anyone else's liking, so the functionality has turned out important. A push button one would have meant no manual input, and less chance for wasting guest's drinks.

Post a little experience to potentially aid others and you get this kind of generic, outdated insults. If you're going to try and be funny, at least make some effort.

Plus, you appear to be a cat lover which makes you a sad lonely weirdo anyway, so you can ram your input up your mangey flea-ridden vermin's tea towel holder

All the best.

Which ones please
I love my coffee as I find coffee from most coffee shops are poor quality tasting bitter and acidic. I bought a filter coffee machine (no pods) and a separate burr grinder. I love the choice of columbian, Costa Rican etc.

Poor, very poor.
Good deal , I had one for three years (was a bit lax on descaling!) lovely coffee far superior to a Tassimo.

I got the lavazza jolie machine this time as I thought the water tank seemed more robust the white model currently £34.50 at John Lewis .
I don't make all coffees at home with it due to the cost but always for an "eye opener in the morning.

Pods are frequently on offer at John Lewis , Lakeland Tesco and Waitrose or if you want to bulk buy sometimes a bit cheaper on eBay/ online.

I must admit, I had a similar problem when I bought a car. I can't drive so I didn't have a clue how to make it go. It would have been so much easier if it had a button that made it drive where I wanted it to automatically.

Yeah, that's exactly the same

Moron.

I love the lever action! Best part is it drops the pod into a concealed bin behind the cup. Actually I'm lying... The best part is it feels like loading up some kind of artillery piece
I was looking at something to replace a mark 1 dulce gusto machine which is probably 10 years old but not used regularly! I like capuchino but their pods are very synthetic in taste using the milk that comes in the box. Would this be a worthwhile upgrade for a quick fix?? I believe there's a model with a milk frother, anyone got any feedback on this feature. Cheers and happy New year.
