Coffee machines

Recommended Posts

I like to have a quick espresso at home. Last year or so I've used a capsule thingy, but I think I am ready for an upgrade.

Currently looking at a Breville barista express, but as it's £800 here I thought I'd ask if anyone had any experiences with it or other recommendations.

That's the one I have. It's branded "Sage" in the UK.

Is that all I get? 😂

Satisfied? Just answer me on signal.

It's a brilliant machine. Not sure that I'd have paid that much for it though - I paid about £400.

You'd need to find a good coffee supplier. I use Pact for most of mine. I've had some amazing coffees from them.

Went and had a look at it yesterday. Love it. 

Especially like the function where it dries out the coffee "cake" before you dispose of it. 

Seems to be value for money.

Once you get to that sort of price most of what you’re paying for is the volumes it can handle and durability.

That said, if I could justify spending that on what looks like a pretty serious coffee machine I probably would.

I’ve got an electric coffee bean grinder and a Cafetière 

Makes great coffee and cost £780 less than that machine 😀🤷‍♂️

Yeah I got one. Guess I am guilty of just liking electronics too much.

I've got this one and its a great bean to cup machine for home use.

This is a bargain at the mo with 43% off.

I’ve got the Bellarom machine from Lidl - compatible with Nespresso pods - does the job fine and doesn’t break the bank

Yeah, exactly. I’ve had a couple of (relatively cheap) machines, but when the last one broke I went back to a stove-top espresso maker that cost about 20 Quid years ago and have stuck with that ever since. It makes good coffee and can’t break.
