This is one of the best bean to cup coffee machines you can buy at this price range and receives excellent reviews. It hasn't been this low in a long time and was £550 on Amazon only last night!

The deal is for Silver or Black.

Its not a bean to cup machine.

Its just got a built in grinder. You still need to dial in your grinder, fill portafilter, tamp and time your shots.

Great machine

Cold no liquid nitrogen? (not voted btw)

That's actually way better. Would have snapped up the standalone grinder this week if it wasn't red. Sorry: Cranberry!

Agreed. I guess it only appeals to people that understand, have researched, like coffee etc...

Are you thinking of buying it?

Its a great bit of kit. I dont own one personally but considered at one point.

One of the best parts of this machine is PID temp control. Cheaper machines use a thermostat so boiler temperature varies wildly.

Its a great package. I spent around £600 on my Gaggia, PID mod and Mignon grinder. This is probably on par or better if you like the preinfusion.

Oh that's good then

Yes I've just purchased after deliberating for a while. I was only looking last night and it was £550, the last time it's dropped to this price was a while ago. I did look into the Gaggia etc but think I just wanted a complete package.

Looking forward to learning the ropes as well

They're made by Breville, which initially put me off, but I've heard nothing but glowing reviews from people far cleverer than an HUKD cold-voter. :P

Came close when I thought my Kitchenaid had given up the ghost but another minor repair and she's made it into her 10th year!

Excellent price

Make sure and get some fresh beans for best results, rave signature blend is a good allrounder. Buy direct and not from amazon as you dont know how long they have been on shelf.
You should sign up at coffeeforums.co.uk if your looking to learn more.

I have this machine and it makes bloody good coffee!

heat from me, this is a great machine. I reckon people voting cold as to tight to buy a decent espresso machine, and never drank more than some cheap instant crap

​The heston Blumenthal range are made by an Australian Breville If I remember correctly, supposed to be much better quality.

I'm glad I saw this as the first comment, was about to go on a rant!! This was my first machine, and it's great, ideal for those wanting to make the jump in to "proper" coffee

Thats correct, a different Breville to the European one most people here would know of, thats why they are badged up as Sage

So when I push the "go" button it doesn't actually make a cup of coffee?
I'm confused, is it a kettle?

Seriously do not get this site sometimes. Hopefully someone will benefit from your find

Its actually cheap for a decent entry level espresso machine and grinder.
Expensive would be £2K+

Got this last year great machine not sure if Lakeland price match amazon if anyone wants one locally

great machine, just got the one without grinder for £300 from John Lewis. best coffee and not hard to do. much cheaper than running our pod machine in the long run.

Harts of Spur have this back in stock again at the same price, but with a free Sage branded milk jug with thermometer:

hartsofstur.com/aca…tml

Also as @mike1212 pointed out, worth getting Lakeland to price match, as they also offer a no quibbles guarantee. So if at any stage you are unhappy their CS will sort it out, even outside of manufacturer's warranty! A pseudo lifetime warranty - YMMV.

I can't understand why this has been voted cold.

You can get decent espressos from a range of machines between 80 and 300. Delonghi magnifica do good machines. I have had a variety of these at home and work and they all produce pretty much the same type of coffee.

However none of them come close to a proper coffee shop espresso, no matter how hard I try.

I was introduced to this machine by a friend. It is virtually professional quality, the closest you could get for sub £1.5k.

I therefore think if you like coffee this represents very good value.

If you are not that into coffee but you like the taste then and aero press or drip coffee machine will do you just fine.

Good beans and good extraction, this is lovely indeed .

Ps ordered from harts.

They've been good in the past and same price but free milk jug.

Lakeland couldn't price match as they couldn't include the jug. However they would sell at 469 just the machine.
