The first one i bought from Lidl failed after a few uses took it back for a replacement, they were sold out so refunded.
Second one i have is same machine but from Aldi 8 months use makes good coffee and quickly froths milk very pleased so far.
The new versions cheaper and they moved the water tank which is better than the old one,not sure if they moved the power button to the front its on the back on the old version.
Some details on the German site HERE

Doesn't look very tall; what size cups fit under it please?
If anyone's into making really smooth, quick coffee, you should check out AeroPress, the rave on Reddit.com/r/c…fee, or a cold-brew setup such as my friend recently got and is loving — great for making iced coffee in these summer months!
The froth nozzle on these type of contraptions are quite annoying and have to be cleaned after each and every use oO

... and what one doesn't? Milk clogs things up like glue.
I've had one for about 12 months from lidl and its been fantastic! I take the plastic recess and metal cover off so you can get a larger cup underneath the dispenser. yes you do need to clean the milk frother regularly but that's normal practice!! Now waiting for a coffee grinder to come up again as the old one broke.

It's an espresso machine, so espresso cups.

If you want a mug of coffee create an Americano by making a single or double espresso, then decant it into a mug and top up with hot water.

Looks cool. Very tempted, especially with the 3 year warranty.Heat added.

The kettle and toaster look good value too at 14.99 each. Again with that all-important 3 year warranty.

Just because it's Lidl it doesn't make it good.

Just need a £5 off £40 voucher now which Lidl seem to do most months in the Metro paper.
Can anyone advise on how long this takes to make an espresso please?
you need a good grinder for a good expresso: http://www.coffeeitalia.co.uk/proddetail.php?prod=Mazzer-Coffee-Grinder-doser-SUPER-JOLLY&gclid=CJvbpYmBpc0CFewW0wod9dwCWQ

The aeropress is awesome, I love it and use it every day however do be aware that it doesn't make espresso. It can make a small coffee that's almost like espresso with enough practice and reading the guides on the internet however i also have an espresso maker similar to this that i also use daily!

I use a basket from an old drip brew coffee machine as a pourover but you can buy pourover cones for a fiver. The coffee tastes just the same as from my aeropress but takes a bit longer to fill a cup. The major difference in flavour comes from the bean choice, amount of grind and water temperature.

The pressure from a machine definitely helps extract more flavour. The grinds in used tassimo discs have no smell at all yet pourover/aeropress leftovers still have plenty left in them. Not to say one is better or worse but it changes the taste.

I also emptied a brand new t-disc into a pourover and it lost a lot of the intensity vs the machine.

Oh, and there's no need to spend a stupid amount of money on a grinder either, can highly recommend this for £25

I had to buy coffee cups especially, most tea mugs wont fit.
Can't rate these highly enough. They are actually made by De'longhi so you're getting a top brand for very little.

My two italian housemates + coffee fanatic brit were both very impressed with it last year - wish I could remember the brand of coffee machine they had (it was a top brand costing a few hundred quid), as they said mine was better.
p.s. had mine 18 months now. Worked perfectly, no complaints at all.

if you take out the draining tray you will get more space to use a wide cappuccino cup saving the hassle of using shot glasses etc..looks classy for the price

Here's a pic of mine with a small and large cup its the older version so unless the new one is smaller you won't have any problems with cups most will be ok.

They're probably made by exactly the same manufacturer, but I believe that's the Italian sounding brand Aldi uses.

True. Steam wands on the very best professional machines need to be cleaned after every single use as well. It's not a big deal though...
