I got that machine. It is fine for this price. But to allow others to chose wisely here is my cons: - a bit noisy (friends have very quiet one to compare - De'Longhi ECAM22.110.SB) - designed in a way that beans do not fall into the grinding hole but you need to push them by hand, - I have had to send that for repair as it had a leak (I not say all this models are faulty, but mine was) - turning knob at mine model is not calibrated and it results that chosen amount of coffee is not what is dispensed (you receive less liquid than indicator shows)
+1 for thr Delonghi ESAM range. The water tank, discarded pucks and cleaning access are all easily accessible from the front, which might matter depending on where the machine is sited. Beans go in the top, which might be a concern if it's under cabinets.
We have had the automatic version of this machine for over a year and find it makes really good coffee. This machine was a free replacement under warranty for a 22 month old one that developed a leak. That machine also made good coffee but obviously didn't stand the test of time and they couldn't repair.
I would agree with above. The Delonghi range have a removable brew unit. We have one at work. I use a jura e60 at home but that is twice the money. Worth keeping an eye on delonghi ebay outlet especially when 20% of coupons come up
Just got rid of my ea1850. Good machine but quite basic. Worth £299 but not really worth RRP. Pain to clean as well, you aren't getting into the grinder to clean it so yea, no maintenance means the inevitable bad tasting coffee after a year or 2 of use.
Guys, I just bought a Used - Acceptable Krups EA8050 from Warehouse (Amazon UK). Anyone have opinions on this one? I can see John Lewis used to sell it. I had a Saeco XSmall machine and ended up giving it to boyf. No matter how much I descaled it and cleaned it - it was temperamental, grinded then spit out grinds without brewing and would overheat (most it ever made was two cups of coffee at a time). Edit: From a bit of a read around - the Krups Bean To Cups (at least, the EA8050, maybe many others) don't allow you to remove the brewing group for cleaning. There's a section on top to allow you to pop in descaling tablets (once every few months I think?). You can also do a rinse cycle every few days. Redditors seem to think a removable brew group is a necessity, so now I'm not sure. Think buying a (larger) Warehouse item from Italy (of any grade) is a bit more of a gamble than I'm willing to take!
Yes it's crazy -- they offer a recycling service but you only get the recycling bags when you buy pods from them directly online (which is more expensive than in the supermarkets). So you're paying for the "privilege" of recycling.
I have one of these and whilst they make perfectly hot chocolate/ coffee etc I feel very guilty using it. The volume of plastic waste from these is crazy, I'm using up the last of my plastic pods and switching to the compatible reusable pods.

Mines already out for delivery today (lol) that was quick!
I complained to amazon about there being no aeroccino in the box as I thought it would be,I don't read the small print,and they gave me £10 back so knocked the price down to £39.I don't think I will continue with the subscription pod prices are ridiculous, thanks again
No worries - first you'll get a delivery with the 50 capsules plus vouchers for the subscription. When you then sign up to the subscription, you'll get your first month free and then they send out the aeroccino with that order. You're then free to cancel online if you don't want to continue
Thanks so much for your help mine has just been approved as well,plus the aeroccino, cheers john
This isn’t available anywhere near me and it’s not available for delivery ;(
How many lungo for a mug? I'd say at least 3
Really simple to "programme". Just press and keep holding down until 'the right quantity' (for you) has been delivered, then release. When you press that button again, that's the quantity that will be delivered - until you decide to change it.
You can fit a mug under the spout as the drip tray is hinged. There are two buttons one for a long cup and one for a shot - I believe they are actually adjustable for quantity, although I've never tried it. You can just press the buttons again if you want more water and press again to stop.
I know espresso is the tagline, but if you like an Americano or whatever milky coffee then this machine is still a must for great coffee imo. The various lungo capsules and many others make for a lovely americano and if you get the matching milk heater/frother thing you will be a happy bunny.
They've not had offers with free pods for the original machines for quite a few months now.
Any current offers including free pods ??
Nice coffee and big advantage is you can get pods in supermarket rather than the expensive Vertuo ones from Nespresso
This is the one I have. It's basic but fairly robust and has a very compact footprint compared to some of the others. This uses the original pods, not the new vertuo ones. These pods are much more widely available including those made by third parties, not the case with vertuo pods. You can get around 5 drinks from the water reserve before you need to top it up. Easy enough to clean too.

Not anymore. They have put the price up to £39 so this deal is now cheaper.
Thanks for info
£29 from AO.
Lidl and Aldi have their own brands, Lidl are better. At Pounddtretcher, Heron and Fultons you may find originals short dated, last time I purchased a box of 30 espresso for £1. But it is a gamble, you just grab when you find them, otherwise the normal price is £3-4. I purchased 5 3rd party boxes for £10 last week, deal posted here. But you get a promo with year machine anyway, you're sorted for a while.
Bear with me as it involves a big effing about but I bought this from Amazon for £64.99 last Saturday and 1. Machine comes with the 12 pod taster pack 2. Register machine on Nespresso site (I made a new account using wife’s name as I get a free months sun next month on mine) This allows the Welcome gift to be sent to you (50 pods made up of 10 caramel cookie, 10 Stormio, 10 fortado lungo, 10 altessio espresso and 10 elvesio) also in this delivery is a subscription code. 3. Activate the subscription code on the app or website, this will cost £25 a month plus £1 for activation which is added to the store credit. The first month is free however and if you keep it running the 6th month is as well, each month gets an extra £2.50 added as well so £27.50. 4. Dont place your first order on the app, use the phone ordering service and make sure you buy at least 100 pods, this will cost extra (approx another £27) this will trigger another free gift as well as the automatic free aeropress3. You can choose one of the Mug/cup packs to be added (I added the vertuo view mug pack. Everything is next day delivery. Breakdown was Machine £64.99 Sub £1 (converts to credit) £27.50 on extra pods I recieved Machine £64.99 Pods 162 £81 Aeropress3 £50 Vertuo mugs £25 Total out £93.50 Total value recieved £221 Decent deal just now.
That's what Terry Waite's wife kept telling his captors in Beirut from 1987 to 1991 (lol)
I've had a VertuoPlus machine for 3 years and I wouldn't swap it for anything.
Nespresso do some nice stuff even if some of the prices are... (shock) :| There’s a great YouTube channel, A2B Productions, who reviews pretty much anything by Nespresso. Machines plus accessories. Well worth checking if you’re unsure about a particular product before parting with your hard earned.
Apologies, that is amazing! My husband bought the vertuo plus at Xmas and loves it! Both my sons have also purchased these machines since. My husband has also bought the aerocino 4 and the nespresso mugs. Last night my son also bought the aerocino 4! I think nespresso is doing well from us! Can’t fault the machine!

If you order this bundle, you'll receive the machine then fill in the form on the Nespresso website with your email address. Once processed they will send you out 50 capsules and a subscription card. The account you used when you filled in for your free gifts will have a promotion now attached to it, and as long as you activate your subscription on that same account anytime before 31/12/2021 they'll send you out an Aeroccino 3 when you do. Hope that clears it up :)
thanks :) but I'm still a bit confused, sorry! I don't see how long you have to subscribe to the pods for to be guaranteed the Aerocinno? I can only see when you'd have to subscribe by. Or does it mean when you activate the free subscription that you get with the machine? I assumed it meant an additional continuation of the subscription? I've mostly read about the non-vertuo machines so I know there's cheaper pod options for those but for vertuo do most people consider the pod subscription the best option? In which case I'd stay subscribed anyway I guess! thanks
*T&Cs apply, UK, CI, IoM & ROI, 18+. Valid for qualifying machines purchased between 03.03.21 and 30.05.21. Registration and Subscription activation required. Two gifts offer: Receive 50 complimentary pre-selected Nespresso Vertuo coffee capsules and two free months (1st & 6th month) Coffee Subscription worth £50/€60 when you purchase a qualifying machine by 30.05.21, and an Aeroccino 3 when you sign up for a Coffee Subscription by 31.12.2021. Max one offer per Nespresso Member.
How long do you have to be subscribed to the coffee pods for to get the Aerocinno? Or does it not make sense to get the pods any other way anyway if you have a Vertuo machine? Thanks.
Might go for something more up market next time around. Thought I'd lost my marbles spending £249 but it is used all the time. Works out cheaper than what we used to spend on Gold blend too.
Thanks Morgan appreciate your advice (y)
Delonghi Esam 4200. Currently 251 on Amazon (tho stock pending). In the past they've regularly hit 200 or just under and it's actually the model up from the 2800. I believe the only difference is cosmetic. I've had one for just over 3 years and Amazon reviews are excellent.
Let me know if you find one lol

So many returns for sale on amazon cant be a great sign?
Had some crazy bargains from Amazon Warehouse in the past. Now its quite clear they dont even look at these used acceptable ones anymore just ship them out.
There's no listing for this on Amazon UK (Warehouse). I get the feeling they've pulled most of their EU products on Amazon Warehouse after Brexit. Pre-Brexit, if it was on all the Euro sites and Amazon UK, it would have been shipped from the same place/be the same item anyway. Only dealing with returns and customer service would have been different, depending which country's Amazon site you purchased from.
Not really as the UK one will have a UK plug & the German one will have a European plug. I like your thinking though. (devil)
Presumably you can also buy from Amazon uk at different price, also warehouse deal? Buy one from uk and one from Germany, keep the best one, return the dog to uk for uk price refund.

NESPRESSO KRUPS Citiz XN741B40 Pod Coffee Machine £120 Amazon£120£13712% off Free P&P FreeAmazon Deals
Seems a good price and hasn't been below this on amazon for a year.
I bought the black one for £123 from curry's a few weeks back. It seems like the white or silver ones are a bit cheaper. So this is an OK deal not great or bad. These machines were £75 last summer when nespresso thought everyone was going to go for the virtuoso machines. The nespresso pods are nearly twice the price of the copies so not sure what the £25 of credit will buy you either as postage is not included on small orders.
It’s a good price for what these are at the moment. My 4 year old machine packed in and I need another it’s just the original models are so pricey now compared to what they used to be. They are trying there best to get people to buy the newer ones with exclusive pods.
True! I realised this after, £136, of which £25 is credit for pods. So might work out a little better. Looking at people's ratings though, it's either not as good of a deal as I thought, or people are just downvoting because its not a tin of beans with 5% off
on the nespresso website I think you can get for £1 + £25 +£110 machine, 1 month subscription, and cancellation.
I have heard about this, although currently they seem to want to lock you into a 24 month contract £25/month that's turned into credit. I've just read they charge a £110 termination fee for the machine to remain yours if you cancel before the 24 months

Any new developments now an EU deal has been agreed?
The EU brought in a new law which now means anyone resident in the EU must pay the VAT rate of their resident country on goods purchased from a foreign company, therefore amazon now charge 20% vat on your order when you order from another country such as amazon Germany in this case where you find the prices all jump up a little bit during checkout from the current German 16% rate. I am not sure if there has been any real change as a result of Brexit yet, as already pointed out amazon are usually willing to sort out the paperwork and handling charges for the imports, but don’t be surprised if that changes! In the Canary Islands we are outside the EU vat area and therefore amazon do not cover all the handling charges for paperwork and if you want to you can pay Amazon during checkout €8 per item and they will calculate/collect any taxes and file the paperwork for you.... When I order from Amazon UK for delivery to the Canary Islands I normally have the same checkout experience as when I order from Amazon Germany, but as of sometime in the last few weeks I am now forced by checkout to pay Amazon in advance for what they have calculated to be the import taxes that will be due on delivery. That is what Amazon do when you order from a non-EU country, so there definitely are changes happening, but I don’t know if they are finished yet. It is really annoying as well, because Amazon incorrectly calculate the taxes for the Canary Islands as if you are on mainland Spain....
Agree, bulletproof machine. I dislike the milk steamer nozzle - its in the way for large mugs when folded in, and stick out like a sore thumb when folded out. Other than that, perfect machine.
I've had this machine for 4 years, still going strong! Only negative is that you can't manually run the clean cycle, you need to wait to be prompted after X amount of cups which is usually months in between.
Well, as the deal still has to be approved by both sides I believe that nothing is clear yet or better nothing is clear before everyone is happy with the deal and it’s getting the final approval from the UK and EU.
Enjoy buying from EU whilst you can, starting from 1st of January buying from Amazon France most likely will require paying import fees
Just out of interest, what happens if you buy from France, Germany ,Italy etc with your UK account and something goes wrong or you need to return an item? Do you just contact Amazon chat in the usual way to resolve any issues?
Cheaper on Amazon.de? https://www.amazon.de/-/en/EA815070-Automatic-Machine-Display-CappuccinoPlus/dp/B00OT1CO0U/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=Krups&qid=1607370487&sr=8-6

For Milk based coffees we use a separate milk frother , more for convenience as you can be brewing the coffee at the same . Also as you are not using the steam function the machine doesn't need descaling as often.
Amazon Germany link to very similar model around £240. https://www.amazon.de/-/en/EA815070-Automatic-Machine-Display-CappuccinoPlus/dp/B00OT1CO0U/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=Ea817040&qid=1607001566&sr=8-6
DeLonghi do NOT replace in the warranty period (see their T&C); it's 2 weeks for pick up then 3 to return and then still broken so another pick up. However, if you buy through Amazon, they will refund. Bitter experience, but Amazon to the rescue.
I have a 3 year old EA8150 (looks identical) and it gets used a lot, at least 12 coffees per day. Never had an issue and it makes good coffee.

At the moment, you can only buy Vertuo capsules from Nespresso stores or the Nespresso website. There are Starbucks capsules coming soon that should be available in supermarkets.
