Meant to say - this is Walthamstow High St branch. I don't know if local/national.

The box in the photo on that shelf isn't a HD7814/60 though!
The HD7814 is an earlier model with - as in picture on the SEL - a sloping cup base and fixed black spout.
The boxed product is the later/enhanced HD7825 with benefit of automatic descaling indicator (and moveable spout)
Either product at that price is about the cheapest ever - from memory £25 for HD7814 (had some at £30) and £30+ for HD7825 (£35 when I got).

got the HD7814 for £25 the other week.

the store I got it from hadn't advertised this as well. but it scanned through at the discount rather than the 65 asking price.

Ah! Yes!! Just checked - there's a 7814 behind the 7825 on the shelf. Will see what the 7825 scans at..

The 7825 scans at £49.95. The only 7814 they have looks like it was a display model - the box is a mess & the unit is assembled & has been shoved back in the box. Looks a bit scruffy.. Oh well.

from my research I remember that these make half decent coffee (not as good as Nespresso, but better than the others). Of course it's all a matter of taste

Forgot to mention the HD7825 has a larger water tank too.
Got a few Senseo machine users in the family here for nearly 2 years now - all very happy - the pads/pods are cheaper per cup by far than most systems and eg Lidl sell compatible ones.
Occasionally get someone claiming they got a machine and it delivered cold coffee which must mean a defective unit - the four I've tried all delivery hot coffee though as recommended by Senseo good to warm your cup/milk with a few secs in the microwave.
It is getting harder to find the pads/pods in the supermarkets though - maybe as they make less margin than on the other systems.

*********** Please forgive me silly question: can someone who owns (knows) this machine can confirm if it accepts various flavours coffee pods (especially Costa one) and if so, what flavours are there available for this particular brand/model.
Thanks in advance

No it uses Senseo "pads" that are like large round tea bags. No other brands pods/discs etc fit it, though there are compatibles such as Lidl.
(There are also some 'adapters' that allow ground coffee to be used instead of a pad.)
More info on pods/pads at
en.wikipedia.org/wik…les
That said there is a vast range for Senseo available SOMEWHERE, particularly in the Netherlands, ie Philips home territory where I understand the Senseo concept has a vast following, eg
coffeepodshop.co.uk/

Ahhh.. thank you for that and especially last link !
Much appreciated

Having said supermarkets don't seem to be stocking so much Senseo ... today local Tesco Extra had loads of various Senseo pads, albeit at regular full prices - eg £4.09 for 20 mug packs ie 20.45p/mug

Lidl next Thursday+, their "Melangerie" Senseo compatible coffee pods (aka pads) in 18 x 7g =126g packs at £1.69 ie 18 cup or 9 mug servings come with a free packet of biscuits! - it's in their Offers leaflet for 29th+ .

The biscuits are McAllisters Shortbread Rounds in Chocolate Chip or Classic forms 150/160g usually 99p.

Seems they are only offering Brazil, Kenya & Columbia pads in future, no mention of the Nicaraguan ones.

Update: available today in store. Still the Nicaraguan on the shelf too! (Discount given in a complex way - ie 2/3rds of the coffee and 1/3rd off the biscuits, but 2 packs of coffee & biscuits and £1.98 total credit for the bics.)
