£339.10 or £449.10?
I was excited when it said £339. Phew don't have to spend the money.
I tried this out and it's a "fake" bean to cup. It allows you to have the barista experience but it's too faffy for day to day use.

Either get a delonghi at about £100 and a seperate burr grinder or a dedicated bean to cup at around £300.

I'd like to hear about people who use this everyday though as I could easily be tempted...
I bought the basic version of this without the grinder, and couldn't get on with the milk foaming. Took it back. Maybe it was me, the amazon reviews are good. I'm happy with my delonghi bean to cup.
Put a famous name to it and it will sell. I bought Tefal Jamie Oliver pots and pans and the handles fell off
This is a great bit of "theatre" for those with time to spend but for day to day use an automatic bean to cup machine will satisfy most coffee drinkers.
I have the Sage duo temp which is a similar model with no grinder. We love it! We got ours second hand and it has only just stopped working after making 2-3 yrs worth of 5-15 cups of coffee a day. I can not imagine that this is not a good machine and if I could afford it would probably buy.

All the sage models are rebranded Breville machines. If you want more info about them search fro the US Breville models as they are very popular there.
Just to add I am yet too have a truly great coffee from a bean to cup machine. I just think they never get the milk quite right in milk based coffees.
I have this and it is great. Had a Delonghi bean to cup before but this is far superior. You can set how coarse you want to grind the beans, set how much you want to grind, and then put in as much water as you need (this can be done automatically). The process of moving the tray with the coffee in adds to the theatre of making a cup of coffee and friends always comment on how nice the coffee is. Makes you feel like a pro.
I'd feel embarrassed to have one in my kitchen. I'm not entirely certain why, but I would.
I have the basic one, it is a little faffy but if you enjoy a great coffee then it’s worth it.
Sage make great machines so having more control than an auto beam to cup can give you better results. Depends if you can sacrifice 1 minute of manual prep/make/clean for something that does this all for you.
Plus the quality of the components is fantastic. Premium features at a decent price
