Found 25th Dec 2008Made hot 25th Dec 2008
Cheapest price I have found on a nespresso "le cube' machine - after the £30 cashback you get direct from nespresso this has to be a bargain! I have heard good things about this machine so just ordered one myself. Not sure if it's instore too but it doesnt say online only so perhaps

Cashback Offer Has Expired - See Terms And Conditions



by a year!

* When you purchase any Nespresso machine between 16th November 2007 and 20th January 2008 (see terms and conditions for details). well out of date

apologies....John Lewis have the wrong form...it is available here and is valid

nespresso.com/pre…uk&

...whats more, Nespresso say it should be 149!!!

Even at £88 that is a bargain compared to the list price of £149.

A bit odd that such an old cashback offer is linked to though, there has even been another one since then. It seems to still be valid so hot from me:

EDIT: the two posters about above me worked out what I posted in the time it took to reply but alas it seems to late to rescue this now seemingly freezing cold deal to the heat it deserves.

i think this deal is worth a bit of heat personally!

That is a bargain. We have the smaller one and the coffee is excellent.

great - what's you're favourite coffee? i'm more of an americano man so looking forward to trying their longer pods - but i do like an espresso in the morning too

I think the quality of the coffee is very similar with the smaller one and this one, i just think this looks funky too

As far as I understand it the coffees will be the same no matter what machine you have.
I've not found one yet that I don't like. After having a Dolce Gusto before I can say these are for sure the way forward for nice coffee.

No, I don't want to save even more, I'd rather pay 25p per capsule rather than all that work and mess, you might as well get a regular espresso machine.

I agree, why buy a premium coffee machine and then take shortcuts??

I've had this machine for a couple of years now. Present from other half who likes coffee in the morning.

Pros: Good Coffee, no waste due to individual capsules(coffee keeps months) plenty of variety of flavours/strengths, no mess, quick delivery of capsules, George Clooney appears in the advert (not pro for me)

Cons: 23-25p per capsules, she drinks more coffee than me

Thanks OP. I had a £10 voucher sitting around and with £30 cash back this is a good deal for me.

Good deal for a decent machine. Just remember that you can only make expresso and Lungo (both black). Also you can only buy the capsules online not in the high strret.

You can buy the capsules on the High Street in Selfridges Oxford Street or the Nesspresso Boutique which IIRC is Knightsbridge. The mailorder service is very good.

is this the one thats being advertised by george clooney

I am a mad coffee drinker with a mad question. Is it safe for someone that is constantly drinking espresso all day? By this I mean when it pierces a hole in the metal capsule, does the residue metal then find its way into the hot drink thereby ingested by the drinker.

Sorry mate that is just madness!!


Do you refrain from sugar so that a spoon, whether it be metal or plastic, does not contaminate your coffee?

I can't imagine that you believe the piercing of the lid will actually lead to part of it becoming detatched and end up in the drink. Any reasonable minded person would surely realise that would be a serious design flaw and the product would be deemed dangerous and be pulled. You can be rest assured that the inside of the lid will be safe to be in contact with the coffee (well I hope you can be sure for again it would be a major design flaw that would not pass saftey levels)

I'm struggling with your whole outlook on the product.

Caffeine side effects -
Serious: these effects, including delirium and collapse, can usually be resolved with hospitalization. Only a small percentage of hospitalizations occur with naturally occurring caffeine sources, and then only with large amounts of caffeine like 8 or more cups of coffee daily.

And you are worried about the metal particals!!

are you sure this cashback offer applies to Le Cube?

25p for a tiny cup

you are all mad

just buy a proper machine
mine grinds up the coffee and just spits out a cup for like 1p a go
your costing your self a fortune in the long run

Other cons: she probably likes her coffee and Mr Clooney more than you, mind you reading the rest of this thread at least some people have a lot more problems than you! ;-)

I'll just stick to my Kenco Fusion 2 in 1 sachet's.

Lovely

What's in the box?

in fairness, it's not that bad an idea.

not for the penny pinching of refilling ilike the jack daniel's i've just had bought) this method could be used rather than having a second machine in the kitchen. gonna try this with my dolce gusto, then maybe i can off load the filter/espresso machin and get some kitchen worktop back!!

The tube vid was tongue in cheek. However if you search youtube there are loads of vids for nespresso

Great deal, the Nespresso machines are very well designed and the coffee tastes great. I believe Heston Blumenthal uses Nespresso as the only coffee sold at his world renowned Fat Duck restaurant.

Ordered - hot price.

this will replace my tassimo.
There was only white le cube left - maybe you should include this in the title.


:santa:

What happens when they stop growing the trees that produce the capsules?

I like the ritual of making coffee, why does everything have to be so easy?

thanks good idea i have done just that!

You also limit yourself to certain types of coffee with this. Buy youself a regular espresso machine and a grinder from ebay and you'll save yourself a fortune. Then use somewhere like hasbean.co.uk and get the best coffees in the world.

we went instore to buy this one but ended up buying the m100 essenza model with the aeroccino milk frother add on (like a little mini silver kettle) so we can do cappuchinos, lattes etc... very pleased with the results, plus we got the £30 cashback offer and an extra 10% off in store so it worked out at £83.40. just made our first couple of cappuchinos and had expressos as soon as we got home... gorgeous, although now we are wide awake and bushy tailed.

you can make a whole host of iced coffees, lattes, mocha's etc.. when your a member (which you have to be to buy the capsules) it shows you, I bought mine today from JL and so far Ive made, mochas, lattes and Iced coffee... Far superior to any Gaggia machine by far!

then stick to your way, but then if you read up on nespresso then you might understand that the capsules contain only the top 1% pure coffee from the bean, the rest is given to Nescafe and nestle for other use...

Plus the Capsules dont get any form of air to them from point of seal to the point of producing the espresso.... how long hasa bag of beans been sat on the shelf, delivered, grinded, mess... thats a lot of exposure and a loss of flavour...
