I tried the P6YP and it worked fine?

Thanks for posting - how do these things work ?

Do they cost a fortune in special coffees etc ?

I cant get the P6YP or SDH1 to work

You got the codes wrong...try SHD1, PY6P

Mine would only work with P7HP and SDH1. Good posting, I was close to purchasing the 6 cup one from amazon that was a tenner.

Assuming this is like all other espresso makers it will take any ground coffee. most supermarkets have loads of varieties available.

Don't know why it didn't work for me, usually does, I tried pasting it and typing but no good.

Anyway, the 15% off code worked so it's only 13p more! ;-)

Also found a pair of jeans for £7, sweet, rep added OP.


BTW: Don't be put off by negative votes, everyone get them. It means nothing really, if a deal helps out 1 person, it's done it's job.

Sorry all, have updated the codes on the post.

These are great, just replaced mine with an espresso machine but have been using one like this for 2 years. Top tip - heat semi skimmed milk in the microwave for 50 seconds and then froth with a milk frother for a great cappuccino. Voted Hot!

I got a 6 cup Espresso Maker for £7 a couple of months ago from TK Maxx though I waste most of it as I'm not a massive coffee drinker, 1 or 2 a day so 9 cup would be far too big, but a great price! Looking for a decent 3 cup =/

Oh and they are fantastic! Got rid of my espresso machine for it because of the amount of space it took up.

What exactly does this thing do? (besides the obvious, make espressos). It looks like just a big jug, what are the internals and mechanical functions it performs?

Theres 3 parts of it, the bottom chamber you add water, the middle basket you add ground coffee, and then you put it on a hob, when the water boils it passes through the coffee and pours into the top compartment giving you espresso.

you just buy normal coffee in the packets, like you put in perculators. they unscrew in the middle and you put cold water in the bottom, and put ground coffee in the very top bit. then you put the whole thing on your stove/hot plate on the cooker, and the heat from the cooker boils the water, the steam goes up a tiny hole in the middle bit and into the top bit where it fuses with the coffee, which you then pour and drink

it's dead simple to use, and cheap as you don't use special pods or anything. it's what folks used in the old days before instant coffee and fancy coffee machines, and some people consider it the best way to make coffee

btw, whilst it may be 9 cup, it usually means the tiny wee cups that are about the size of a thimble, so a 9 cup expresso maker will probably do about 2 or maybe 3 decent size mugs of coffee. i got a small one from tk maxx a while back, thinking the whole thing would make coffee and i'd get a couple of mugs out of it, but it only made about 3/4 of a mug worth (i got a tiny model)

...just what I was looking for.

That's the way us Italian like it! We drink very small amounts of espresso which is normally very strong, otherwise we wouldn't sleep Well I suggest if you like long ones to put a little bit less ground coffee in .....

ordered - replaces a very well used and some what tarnished one!
* I once had one of these explode coffee across my whole kitchen, floor, wall, celing the lot!!

Great stuff, thanks OP

I think they go off how many shots/oz of espresso it makes, because my 6 cup usually gives me 2-3 cups off coffee with 2-3 shots in each so makes roughly 6 shots- just depends how many shots of espresso you have!

It's a shame you can't put less coffee in and make just 1 or 2 but the espresso tastes weak then because of less pressure. Think I'll get a 3 cup and keep my 6 cup for when I have company!

Krato's description is absolutely correct, The ground coffee should go in the basket that sits inside the lower compartment, never in the upper compartment. I may be misinterpretting Uni's comment but I would not put ground coffee in the top compartment. I would also not recommend drinking a mug of espresso no matter how tired you are in the morning!!!

bagged one for my dad,,he is italian and the one he has is years past its sell by date,,,great find, plus codes worked and quidco,,wowwwww.

As someone said earlier grab a Bodum Milk frother if you can, makes a complete difference to Cappuccinos!

amazon.co.uk/Bod…8-2

I picked one up in TK Maxx for £3.99, best to get the ones with handles though because I've burnt myself a few times now. Just add hot milk, plunge for a minute or two and you have thick creamy milk and froth; do thirds, espresso, milk, and froth to make a nice creamy cappuccino =D

You actually can do. Just put half the water and half the ground coffee. Still same result just less coffee....

H&R added.. just got myself one.

H&R good find been after one of these, thanks wazzygib

Can these be used to make a filter type coffee... rather than an espresso?

You can make a shot of espresso and top it up with hot water to make an Americano. (or you can add espresso to hot water to make a long black ?!)

I always thought you used the ground coffee that you buy in a supermarket in a perculator - you know the jug with the handle that you push down slowly

so whats the difference??

Or am i being thick?

Yes, you can use exactly the same ground coffeee.

Just don't use Instant coffee!:whistling:

What you describe is a French press, not a percolator. This uses steam to force the water through the coffee, so it's not in contact with the grounds for long and makes a stronger more intense coffee.

Not nearly as good as a decent espresso from a good pump machine like a Gaggia, but handy to take on holiday.

You should still buy fine ground espresso coffee for a proper cup.

You can use the same coffee, though ideally the stuff for espresso makers like this should be more finely ground. The finely ground stuff can clog up cafetieres.

Next to cafetieres these are the easiest and best way to make coffee, and I much prefer the fuller taste you get out of one of these. I used to have a big fancy chrome doodah which was a pain to use and clean. Espresso pots like these you just take to bits and run under the tap (and even that's optional).

O but I did have to switch from a 9 cup maker to a 6 cupmaker a while ago - starting the day with two mugs of espresso has you climbing the walls..!

top deal :thumbsup:

I can imagine it tastes better but to have a cup of coffee you've got to make the shot of espresso through this and then top up with hot water?

Yep, that's an Americano

seems like a lot of effort - is it that good?

Depends what you want, if you just want a 'normal' coffee then I would suggest a french press is probably the best thing (personally speaking). If you want to make a decent latte, cappuccino, mocha etc then you at least need one of these.
