I found out today as my home office is not connected to the house and is not shared as a domestic dwelling or some other accountancy nonsense (it's a very big insulated shed with a bike workshop on one side and my office in the other), I can legitimately buy a new coffee machine as company fixtures and fittings. Result.
I've had my eye on this one for a while and now it's come down in price. Can find a bad review of it on the web.
I have a six year old Gaggia Classic currently. Love my coffee, really can't be faffing with all the bean grinding/cleaning up after I saw a mates bean to cup which made a brilliant cup of coffee.
£300 seems a stupid amount for a coffee machine. Can't see me paying anymore. But always happy to hear other options. We do have a great coffee roaster in Ross so I'm good for fresh roasted beans.
