Bought this yesterday direct from Amazon for £35
All Coffee Machine Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
Saw it changing to £17.39 (from £7.50) when I refreshed the page- so dissapointingly AMAZING! (shock)
Cheers OP. Just what my folks need.
Thanks I can wait so I ordered it (highfive)
It’s a great machine but I have trouble buying the capsules in my local supermarkets, where do you all buy them from?
Thanks for this - ordered from Lakeland. Tried to get Lakeland to pricematch John Lewis but the model numbers are different - however Amazon have also dropped the price to £40 so got Lakeland to pricematch Amazon as same model number. Also bought frother from Lakeland for £19.99 under their own special offer! Advantage of Lakeland over John Lewis is the legendary 3 year guarantee! Thanks once again. Now anyone know of any decent compatible capsules?!
Just got the Jolie plus with a milk frother for £60 from JL. Loads of free capsules given and also some in the box. Lavazza guy said the offer had been messed up on the website as the price reduction should have removed the frother. They changed the offer as they have/are running out of frother. Very happy, thx op for the heads up.
Oh, if no stock, then submit as price match as within 30 days 50/50 whether they will as RD isn’t essentially “like for like”, and a lesser product despite is being the same price. I wish you well. Ring JL customer services, if no luck, ring store directly. After that, you’re on your own tbh.
Just buy another one, then return it with your £80 receipt. Job done.
Got one in Aberdeen today. Vouchers expired on 31/05/18 so you can’t use them :( I was going to try buying reusable pods and use proper ground coffee, not sure how good they are though.
Got one this morning in basildon. The vouchers date has expired but pods are on 3 for £10 in Asda atm
Got one in Boldon ASDA for a xmas present for my parents. Thanks OP.
> So if you love your coffee- effectively your in £15 profit after buying it Not quite. You get 2x £20 vouchers and 1x £10 voucher. Minimum order is 4 packs or £20, one voucher per order. The closest you can get is 5 x £4.49 packs, so £22.45 an order. Delivery is free, so you'd be paying £2.45 for each of the two orders using the £20 vouchers, and £12.45 for the order where you use the £10 voucher. It'd be nice if you could just pick £50 of pods, but they're not daft. If you were buying those 15 packs in the supermarket, given that they're usually on offer somewhere at 3 boxes for a tenner, those 15 packs would cost you £50 in store, so you're effectively getting £50 of stuff for £17.35. It's still a good deal, but not quite £15 in profit. :)
I got this one but by Militre I think it was for a tenner. The Glass jug is VERY fragile to breaking, even from warm water as it's so thin. Mine broke and now I have a useless coffee maker
The esam4200 is £299 on amazon and sometimes cheaper than that.
As I say, Its horses for courses. I'm sure all Delonghi machines do a great job. The further you go up the food chain the more functionality, and obviously cost. If anything my machine is overly bossy - do this, do that, empty this, fill that etc. But at least it has little margin for error. I got my teenager to make me a lovely cup of coffee today - which is like a first. I guess he only did it coz it was a spangly kitchen gadget.
De'Longhi Magnifica ESAM 4200.S Bean to Cup, Silver this is the one i have from amazon, significantly cheaper, didn't come with any filters or anything... the grind bean setting switch is a bit difficult to turn, not sure if thats a fault... and obviously doesnt have a milk container
Horses for courses, but yes. I find Nespresso and similar coffee machines to be a bit artificial in terms of taste. A good bean to cup will not get you the exact same quality as from a good coffee Barista, but its close enough for us mere mortals. We had both Philps Senseo and Dolche Gusto before our Delonghi, and this if most definitely a step up from both of those. I've tried coffee from nespressos, and I would put them at a similar level to the Dolche Gusto we had. Also, in the long run Nespresso are an expensive way to buy not much coffee, vs a bag of Beans. Also worth mentioning that if its like ours you can use ground coffee via a small slot next to the bean vault, so if I am caffeinated to the eyeballs I can just bug some ground decaff in there and chill a bit.
If its anything like all the other Delonghi machines I have seem (and other bean to cup machines) it'll come with one water softener/filter, which is placed in the water reservour. You don't HAVE to use it, and really this depends upon the hardness of your water (ours came with a water hardness tester). If you don't wish to use the water filter/softener you can set the water hardness via the machines menus and use regular tap water. BUT even with regular descales this is going to eventually limit the life of the machine if you have anything other than soft water. Its up to you - but I invested significantly in my machine and I want it to continue to work for as long as possible.
Typically only a few varieties of pods in the supermarkets but Lavazza now produce 19 types. Looks like they’re trialling compostable pods too.
I like my Nespresso machine but must say, the Lavazza coffee is lovely.
Lovely coffee as you would expect from Lavazza, but very limited selection of pods available and only official Lavazza ones fit. Having said that, I still use my one that I bought two years ago!
I added a few bits to the basket that continued to crash yesterday till I eventually gave up hope. Tried again this morning and while the site is more stable, man you prices have now shot up which is sooooooo annoying
...bodum tss (highfive)
Back to school?
The Bodum BEAN (only brown left) is also available for £9 (was £33). Great x-mas gifts :)
Teachers go back to school too! They drink lots of coffee! Lol (lol)
the Hario skerton pro or the rhinowares coffee grinder
you will get some filters with the kit and its a 02 hario
Have you had a look on the site? It should say. My notifications ain’t coming through so missed your previous comment 😏
Thanks all, does anyone know what type of filter fits the Hario V60. There seems to be two types. Odd my previous comment was deleted... for rude words ?!? (angel)
Thanks got one. What type of filters does it take 01 or 02 size? maybe they're all the same?
Everything I've bought from the warehouse has been brand new.
Proberly not even cleaned from the last time it was used. Yay for bacteria.
Is that why it's called legacy? A French press must be prehistoric.
None, its for ground coffee :)
What sort of pods does it take?
Unfortunately, I had to return too many of these. The longest one of these lasted for us was a week. Ended up buying my wife the ninja coffee bar. She loves it. If these cheap ones were reliable, they'd be brilliant. Unfortunately, too many have issues. Sometimes paying extra is worthwhile, I'm not saying go out and pay 80 quid for one, but upping your budget might bag you something more worthwhile. We've also had a pod machine, they're a real waste of money. Over priced kit with massively overpriced pods
Not in stock near me, damn.
Got one as well, no brainer
i think its great to be able to mix my own coffee and discover a new taste
Great price, thanks. We used to have something similar years ago, had forgotten all about Agree that the pods are a rip off and they add to the mountain of plastic waste that is thrown away...
Just picked one up in Sainsbury's in Leamington. Cheers.
DeLonghi shut for 2 weeks holiday and wouldn’t do anything to help me, pretty shocking I thought for a repair under warranty :/
in Carlisle store too
DeLonghi replaced my kettle with no issue. All they asked for was proof of purchase. I was looking at these at AO. Great price.
Good price but terrible after care with DeLonghi (fierce)
I hope it's decent, because I bought one too. :)
I’ve un-expired it - first deal I’ve posted so getting the hang of it. I don’t own this but I had an old camel alert set up and looked like a great deal. I’ve had delonghi machines in the past and they always ended up leaking. Think this is a goodmachine in this price range.
This hasn't expired if you go to other sellers the Amazon option is still there.
I own one, it's ok at best. Better to put that money towards one of those delonghi bean to cup machines. Hard to get a decent crema even with freshly ground beans. Luckily I got mine second hand but hardly used for £25.
If theres one in Barking/Chadwell heath, i might get one
I love a bit of 3 dimension coffee maker. There’s nothing worse than a 2D coffee maker.
I like these too so great price (y) 🏼
I disagree, this is my favourite one and I've tried them all.
I agree, it is nasty. I only get the Costa ones. But good price, as you say.
So I guess the price reason now :/
Good price, worst coffee I’ve ever drank
Erm, this is the original design, granted it's not a Bialetti though. I own several pots of different sizes and have never had any of the problems you offer.
Forget these copies, they spill, leak, explode, or break. Go for a Bialetti Moka pot, the original design, they're expensive but will last forever. As they say, buy cheap, buy twice. You won't regret it.
Thanks, OP. Perhaps a good price, if you specifically wanted pink. Otherwise, lots available in silver at this price, as delivery charge is unavoidable. Quick search on Amazon shows VonShef sell this size in silver for £7.99 delivered.
It'sa not a coffee pot - it'sa vile!
