Best Coffee Machine To Get?

Ask a Question

What coffee machines are you using? I am looking for one but I am unsure which one to get. Shouldn’t be too expensive, any recommendations? Thank you!

I've got a Bosch Tassimo Suny.

They're normally cheap enough to buy and quite often on offer.

The discs aren't cheap though, especially the cappuccino ones. You're looking at 8 servings for around £4-5 and you only get half a mug.

And then there's the recycling. You can only take them to a specialist centre to get the discs recycled, so not exactly very environmentally friendly.

I use a Philips Senseo, but I am not sure you can get them anymore.

Makes a nice cup of coffee, and you can get compatible pods as well as official Douwe Egberts ones.

I had one once and didn't like it. The coffee tasted awful with pods and capsules full of yukky milk and powder. Years later I bought another, with a voucher from here, and within 2 weeks I had given it away to my son for his office. Tbh I prefer instant, or the nescafe cappuccino sachets with a slug of Baileys lol ☕

Lynibis Haha 😆

I do the same with the cappuccino sachets, but with a couple of shots of whiskey instead.

TheChimp a lot quicker and easier in my opinion. If the op likes 'proper coffee' maybe a filter machine would suit better. My friend was recently given a pod machine and when she gave it a clean found it full of mould and other revolting gunge. Lots of people don't read the instructions or bother with cleaning it. Some modern tech creates more work than it saves, and imagine all the packaging saved without pod/capsule machines.

Lynibis I love my Tassimo, but every so often, the discs explode. It's a right pain to clean then.

There's also a light that comes on that tells you when to use descaling tablets.

I only use it for Costa cappuccino, but you only get half a mug.

And as I've said, you can't recycle the discs easily, so most of the time, they go to landfill ☹️

If you want a real coffee buy a sage machine a bit expensive but it's worth it you won't regret it.

We had an all singing and dancing delonghi bean to cup machine cost £400... other half initially loved it but after a while he said they all taste the same despite getting different beans. Tried a friends cheap Nespresso machine and he loved it so bought one with the milk frother and he now loves it. Get cheap pods in Aldi, Sainsburys etc and it’s great. So I’d say try a few before you buy. Myself I love the Kenco instant duo lattes 😆

This is the one we have
