About this deal

Great price on the machine again. It seems to go up and down in this colour only. Possibly not as popular as the others. Compared to other models out there the water tank is fairly small at 1.2L, but if it was for me that's more than fine. I like to change the water pretty regularly anyway.

Can make drinks between 30 ml to 220 ml and there a 3 grinding levels. Some may want more, but for the money here, I think it's a nice machine if you're looking for a first one. We went bean to cup just before Christmas and it's been pretty awesome (Not this machine though)

    Got this at this price a couple of months back when it was on hukd. Moved from a couple of nespresso machines. Prior to that was using a delonghi full espresso machine. I'd say this is somewhere between the two in terms of convenience. Never owned a bean to cup before so nothing to compare it to.

    Pros:
    - Makes a great coffee. On par with my previous manual espresso machine, and better than the nespresso (both classic and Vertuo)
    - Grinds coffee well
    - Small and sleek design
    - Not too loud
    - Easy to clean and descale (they have a nice app which explains the process step by step)

    Cons:
    - Small coffee compartment which needs to be filled, I'd say every 10th coffee made
    - Small water compartment needing filling every 5-10 coffees made (depending on size)
    - Waste basket seems to fill with a lot of water so needs emptying every 5 coffees or so (independent of size of coffee)
    - No milk frother, but we don't use it. Would be nice to have for guests, but would probably mean a larger machine. Anyway, I have the free-standing frother from my nespresso in case I need.

    Would I buy this again? For the price, yes. I definitely wouldn't spend more on another machine just for added extras. This does what I need well despite the cons for a very reasonable price. (edited)

    Always wanted a bean one, anyon got one ? Never fancied paying 400 quid for one though !

    I've gone from Tassimo to a Nespresso then about 18 months ago went to Bean to cup. It's like night and day and so much cheaper just source some good beans. If you want an entry level Bean to cup machine the Delonghi Cafe Corsa ESAM2800 is a great machine. You can get deals on a refurbed one of delonghi eBay site for around £150. I got mine from there and it had been a solid machine that looked like new when it arrived. (edited)

    ive got this one - changed to it when my last one gave up the ghost (a 400 quid one) it had more than I needed as I dont bother with milky drinks - so this is great for espressos and americanos and the odd flat black! can reccomend it

    Bought the milk frother version of this (Caffeo Solo & Perfect Milk) nearly two years ago for £120 on Amazon DE Warehouse. Couldn’t have asked for a better starter machine. Love the granular control over the amount of water to run through each coffee - you can adjust it in near 5ml increments. Extremely compact too. Does need frequent cleaning internally as some grounds fall into crevices and, if left too long, get mouldy quick.

    Got this just before Christmas.

    Pro
    Makes excellent coffee (obviously with quality beans). 5 grind settings

    Easy to clean and easy to operate

    All necessary add-ons like water filters, cleaning tabs, calc liquid are easily available on Amazon

    Miles better than my old Nespresso machines, both Vertuo and original.


    Cons
    Water tank is small, so handy to have it near the sink for filling up

    Coffee bean holder could be bigger, probably enough for 15 coffees ish

    Water tray does take on a lot of water through the initial set up, automatic cleaning after use and therefore needs to be emptied practically after each use.



    Worth £169. For sure. If you want milk element, get a cheap milk frother unit like an Aeroccino from Nespresso.

    Just to echo what others have said really! Got one at this price before Christmas, and I’m delighted with it. Water tank and bean hopper both small, but this a a great machine.

    Also has a small footprint so fits perfect on the kitchen bench.

    I got the Melitta milk frother to go with it. - Melitta 6758122 Cremio II Milk Frother, Bamboo, 450 W, Black amzn.eu/d/21DuDjS

    Don’t think you’ll find a better machine at this kind of price (or with £100 for that matter ) (edited)

    Night and day. Melitta you just put the beans in, press a button and you're good to go. The other is a bit of a faff (for me anyway). Grinding the beans, tamping down the coffee etc etc.
    I just want a coffee.

    Tempted to swap my Nespresso vertuo for this good idea?

    Definitely had my moneys worth from Vertuo offers, but cost per coffee starting to bite.

    Bit of a bean to cup newbie though, can you make any coffee style with these? (edited)
