Reusable pods on eBay - (142148491473)
Yes. I saw these last week. Looks good value because I assume the same mechanism is used to process the pods in the more expensive models? We have a Bosch Tassimo. It’s ok but can’t help thinking these are better? And st that price

Tassimo is better that this, but nothing will beat bean-2-cup coffee machines.
Pods machines looks cheap, but pods are expensive, compared to coffee beans.

Where to source the cheapest pods anyone?

These coffee machines are becoming like cheap printers where the cartridges cost more than the machine.

What I do is buy 50 of the mocha pods, just the coffee pod, for £12.50 on eBay. Then I use fresh milk and a hand frother.

sort of does away with the machines benefits though. I've use these in a clear coffee cup and it looks well. Ikea sell a coffee frother for £1 but then why not just use your own coffee and milk/ cream. Sort of does away with the benefits.

Thanks for the response though.

Had a tassimo and wasn't a fan
I'm sure someone posted or mentioned this price last week as I went and bought one
I like it and drinks taste great
Downside like my tassimo they are not really really hot , just about drinkable hot
And I don't like the idea you have to stop the machine , it should auto stop like the tassimo
But saying that , the drinks we have had taste better

It's 16 pods (8 coffee / 8 milk) for £2.99
I saw the 10 on the front and it's the strength of the coffee not the contents
Lidl do their pods for £2.49. The Macchiato ones are quite nice

I like the taste of the mocha coffee. I haven't found mixing hot chocolate with espresso to taste the same...

"Simply insert the coffee pod, push the button and let the machine do the rest."

Not quite true then!

I didn't realise that. THAT defeats some of the object!

That's a load of nonsense. The button on these just turns it on. As this is not the auto model you need to slide the switch over and then slide it back yourself
Oh the hassle of having to switch it off yourself. I mean cmon it takes 30 seconds per pod. I have one. You have to return to an auto one soon as ready anyway. They are great for the money and being small fit on counter without having a Starbucks sized machine. It's simple and quick and if you shop around you can get the pods on offer. I would recommend one especially at £30. We actually use it rather than let it gather dust like your bean to cup jobs. Oh and it's dead easy to clean. If however you cannot spare 1 minute to operate it yourself suggest getting auto one ..for more money of course.

I don't know. Never used them. Thinking to buy. For now I'm happy with my bialetti espresso kettle

We had a Tassimo before getting this, the Dolce Gusto is much better - Tassimo now getting consigned up to the Caravan for summer holiday use!
Agreed. I much prefer this machine over the Tassimo. I have both and the coffee tastes significantly better with the Dolce Gusto. Also, whilst the Tassimo stops automatically, I always find that I have to top my cup up anyway. In that sense it takes longer to make a coffee. With this you just flick the switch over, wait about 30 seconds and then switch it back when you've got exactly how much you want.

I never said it was a hassle! But the corporate spiel about pushing a button and letting the machine do the rest is inaccurate. I buy a new one of these every year and you are incorrect about the auto one costing more money. They were £28 during Black Friday week back in November.
Got one at Xmas.very nice coffee and available at most supermarkets..If it broke I would definitely replace.I find it makes coffee nice and hot.TIP I find if you fill the container with warm water it makes it very very hot
I have one of these, I dont get along with it though as I find
measuring the right amount of water to put in a fiddle.
Wish I'ld got the automatic one instead.
I received this model for Christmas. Very happy with it.

Have tried the official Americano pods 4 pounds 50 for 16 pods. Also Lidl do some compatible ones that cost 2 pounds 49 for 16 (I like the Lungo ones).

The fact that it is manual is not a problem as I like to fill a large mug up.
I bought the automatic version (Mini Mi) from Tesco for this price. I had £18 worth of clubcard vouchers that I had forgotten about but Tesco website keeps record of your unused vouchers so the machine cost altogether £11 and came with £30 worth of vouchers for the pods- Result!
