Not sure if better then a delonghi ( which I have) it will boil down to price and looks.

The auto frother is better then any Delonghi B2C i've tested. It produces decent micro foam, which no other B2C i've tested has managed.

If you check a few coffee forums its a pretty well regarded semi automatic coffee machine. Has a PID sensor and produces decent coffee and very good foam as I already mentioned. The grinder is the only bit most aficionado's dont rate, it's ok but separates are better. But if you're looking for an all in one package which does much of the work automatically, then this is about the best you'll get (the next step up is the Oracle, which has auto tamp, but is much more expensive).

JL sometimes have Sage demo's on, so worth checking your local to see when the next one is. I was suitably impressed that it's been on my price watch since.

NB: I own a Delonghi B2C.

Hopefully they'll be one
See, I'm a coffee lover and I have a delonghi espresso machine that does the job but I feel as though I need something better and a bean to cup as well.ive found an awesome local roaster which is within walking distance too.

The thing is, I can't part with 500+ notes for a machine. I want to, the missus will kill me (which has never stopped me before) but I just can't justify it to myself either! Anyone got any recommendations of some decent 200 quid(ish) bean to cup machines....man I'm torn....can you tell?
I have a high end machine and I hate it, I wish I stuck with my Nespresso machine which was quick and easy, little cleaning and was better quality than most Beans I've tried. The other thing I've found is I get headaches all the time now, like I'm overdosing on Coffee, something that never happened with Nespresso.

If you like filter coffee and you like it freshly ground you could check out the
Melitta Aromafresh grind and brew 1021-01 filter coffee machine sku 6760642

I've recently purchased one from AO.Com for £108.95 who pricematched Hart's of Stur's offer which I think is still on. AO.Com delivered it to me the next day.

I have been using it alot, you get the lovely fresh coffee smell around the house.
Using freshly ground coffee makes the coffee taste great just like it's from my favourite coffee shop obviously this depends on your choice of beans or ground coffee.

Delonghi 4200 all day long.
Comes up on deal of the day every now and then on Amazon for £200, especially prime day / black Friday etc...

Had mine 4 years and it's fantastic
Voting hot. Looking to upgrade my Sage Barista Express and this is the next model up. I’ve been happy with the express once I got to grips with weighing out the beans and timing the shot but I would like to be able to get a better foam on the milk which this is supposed to do.

Preferred the chrome version but that’s not been this price at all.
Cracking machine. Have had one for a year. Love that its fully automatic. not a purists machine, but makes an amazing coffee once you dial it in properly and to be fair can be as manual as you want . And the biggest plus is that its wife friendly. one of the best purchases of last year for me
this requires tamping right, isnt that a bit a messy

As another has already said the Delonghi 4200 is a great machine.

There was an Amazon Warehouse deal last month where they were selling Used - Like New for £160 (basically the box was damaged).

I get somewhere in the region of 24 to 30 espressos from a 200g bag of beans.

If you mean the ESAM4200, I had one of those for a few years. It's a good machine, but IMO this is a big step up, especially in terms of foaming milk.

Largely the Delonghi machines are all the same, just cosmetic differences. Different physical size, digital display, auto or manual frother, etc. If you open them up, you'll see the innards are identical.

But they did change some things between the ESAM and ECAM range. And IMO some of those changes are worth spending more for, having gone from the ESAM4200 to the ECAM420. Firstly, ESAMS have a really convoluted internal design, making it a PITA to clean out errand grounds. Secondly switching between Espresso and Frothing is much faster. The ECAM 420 also allowed me to add a water filter, perhaps the newer ESAMS allow this but the one I had didnt have the slot in water chamber. And the ECAM420 is narrower, meaning it takes up less space on the worktop. It's also aesthetically better looking, which may or may not be important to you.

Therefore i'd keep an eye out for a deal on the ECAM 420 over the ESAM 4200. There have been a few in the past. IMO it's worth spending the extra £100 since you'll hopefully have it for years (mine is 10 years old now).

I just called them. Unfortunately this isn't available for Costco purchases as they're not on their authorised list.

Blah, I still ordered one after Shpocking the Melita Caffe-O we had. Would've been so much better with three extra promotional trinkets!

Guess it doesnt hurt to file the claim anyway

Does this mean any cash back offer won't apply either That would be far more painful.
Too many complaints of temperature issues- too low and inconstant temperature. What's the point of fast-heating water if I have to waste time with empty shots to reach high temperatures.

Fortunately Costco have a 90 day no quibble return policy (in practice they'll take it back long after that if you say its faulty). So not much of a risk to check for yourself. As the machine has lots of positive reviews as well.

Like any machine the portafilter needs to be up to temperature, and you can adjust temperatures in the settings.

From the John Lewis website:

Businesses that trade on a different basis to John Lewis & Partners are not deemed comparable high street competitors. These include: outlets that operate only on the internet or through mail-order, showrooms attached to internet-only companies, pop-up or temporary shops, collection points, auction sites, factory outlets, membership clubs, duty-free shops, market stalls or home shopping channels.

Might still be worth a try though.

RS (they may ask for proof of Costco Membership), but I doubt they sell it.

JL dont. Not sure about Curry's.

This is the experience from TV threads. I'd probably still go with Costco for the customer service and ease of return. If it was cashback it would be a different story.

I know the feeling, just be thankful it isn't cash back as that would be far more annoying.

Looking at the pack, it's only really the Bodum cups i'd want. The machine already comes with a milk jug. Everything else would just take up space in a cupboard.
Amazing deal and the machine to me looks nicer in black. I had a delonghi b2c for 5 years and this knocks the socks off it. It is messy but worth it. Coffee taste better and the milk is hot, like coffee shop hot. Unlike the delonghi which get warm at best. The heating issues look to be down to poor sockets unable to provide the power needed. Mines hot. A little tip. Froth your milk twice at 50 degrees. You get even more foam!! Also i bought the melitta ts smart and sent that back because it made luke warm latte. If your a milk cofffee person get this machine. Even the wife doesnt mind the mess now she gets a brilliant latte.
Purchased - delivery in 2 days...sadly they do not stock this in store.
Update - ordered yesterday 2.15pm and delivered this morning 9am - can't fault Costco on their delivery

Would anyone who has this mind measuring the temperature of the hot water out of the hot water dispenser please?

I would like to upgrade to something that has a hot water dispenser for long coffees like this. I had previously tried the nespresso creatista pro which has a dedicated hot water spout too. But it disappointingly dispensed hot water in the high 60s making the entire drink not hot enough (even in a prewarmed cup).

The barista touch seems to have the same thermojet system, but I’m wondering if it was nespresso getting involved in making the temperature lower and so this will be better, or whether it’s an issue with thermojet in general so this will be the same?
Ordered mine on Friday.......can’t wait
I know they told Fergee Costco doesn't qualify for the promotion. But probably worth filling out the form anyway, there is an option to select "other" as the retailer:

brevilleusa.secure.force.com/reg…EU1

Worst case they decline it, but you might get lucky
