If you enjoy your Bialetti that’s fine but there are many different methods of brewing coffee and all will taste different. A coffee out of £10 bladed grinder and a Bialetti is not the same. Each to their own.

Also £150 trade up cash back offer. It wouldn’t let me edit to add that.
Works out to approx £650. RRP £999!
I seriously wonder why folk buy stuff like this! A coffee plantation, a time machine and an old Empire punkawallah would be cheaper to get than bean to cup machines.

When a grinder costs a tenner and bialetti as much (let's forget the modern day slavery houseboy) and you get the fresh coffee grinding smell too.

Can't help but think one has to be stupidly rich or stupid to buy these machines...

That said, I'm sure this one is a fine... erm... umm. : )

didn't intend to insult the poster... I appreciate all the endeavours of folk who put their own time into trying to support their fellow hukdsters.

my vent/ventu (ha haaaa!) was more at the ridiculous investment for a domestic coffee maker.

I use Asda Gold, personally! (I'm ribbing you now... but you know that, don't you!) : )

I'm no coffee snob but I got this model from Amazon warehouse last year (came brand new just damaged box) and it's honestly one of the best things I ever purchased - can't imagine going back to a grinder and cafetiere. I'm tight when it comes to any purchase too but absolutely worth the £600 I paid for it.
I have another model - the sage oracle and it has been the best thing I’ve ever bought. I can do coffee art now and it tastes better than costa (with the right beans)

What beans do you use? Costa is my favourite Coffee, besides a local coffee brand (Crosby Coffee, Iron Man Blend) that beats it. By far the best coffee I've ever had.
Here's our local coffee company website too: crosbycoffee.co.uk/

I very much doubt this £600 coffee machine would be considered by the stupidly rich looking for a coffee machine.

So that leaves those on UKHD who have bought it being labelled as stupid?

Sounds like your feeling a little insecure about your £20 alternative.....
38558456-tO60P.jpgFor anyone interested in really good coffee and don’t mind paying for it, I used to live next to a coffee plantation in Cairns, Australia and my favourite coffee is black mountain beans, I’ve recently moved back to the UK and they deliver internationally, I bought 3kg (Bonus 250g of coffee of the month thrown in too) of beans delivered to me for £100. It works out to be approximately 60 pence per double shot of coffee counting on you use max 18grams per dose, most only use 14 grams (47p) I know that will be expensive to most but I previously paid £36 a kilo locally so for me it was cheaper for the beans I love that aren’t even comparable to any bean I’ve had here in the UK (yet) - anyway if you are interested the website is coffeeworks.com.au
I recommend the black mountain, Luciano or Robertas if they have them ready. They come vacuum sealed and yes coffee beans are permitted for international travel.

I don't use the £20 alternative, my mamma does. She's Italian... she'd wet hereself laughing (more than she already wets herself) if I told her folk spend £600 for a coffee. If you're that keen just get a Costa franchise!

And I'm not insecure about my Asda Gold... who get's insecure about coffee?

Exactly! Why would she buy a coffee for £600 when she can get two for £38.

This is the manual tamp version?

Been wanting one of these ever since I tried the Oracle Touch at JL. Excellent coffee and very easy.

My current B2C is looking like its about to give up after 10 years, so on the look out for a deal on the Sage. I'm just not sure I could (could be bothered) to master the tamping process (presuming this is the manual tamp version).

It's £638 mate, not £638k lol.

I've used my current B2C daily for 10 years, so its hardly like i'm wiping my b*m with £50 notes :/

Are you going to jump on every other thread and castigate people for their elective purchases? For example what kind of idiot would pay £99 for roadside recovery when they could just walk home
Just noticed PRCDirect have the Black one for £699, plus the £150 cash back promo is listed, so would be £549 after cashback.

JL may price match as well.

Thanks, that's a little steep to add auto tamp

I really just want the auto tamp though (aside from that, i'd be happy with this).

Who needs a double boiler with the new barista pro thermajet system?
It makes the more expensive models irrelevant really.

I know right, Mine was £599 and worth every penny its used 6-10 times a day - people spend more on mobile phones!


I didnt have time to grind, tamper, cock it up, start again, yadda yadda then only to be asked for another coffee ! Now i wake up hit a button for anyone who wants one, any type of strength or water, consistent, every time.

When it dies, Ill go out and whack another one on my credit card, its like fuel or maintenance for my car, its part of daily life now.
