- Bean to cup – Budget question
We got a delonghi at work thats currently on amazon for under that. It has to be said i’m a fairly low level coffee snob, just use supermarket beans, but I like it a lot. Much prefer it to the aeropress I use at home.
Probably should also say I only really use it for espresso, the odd time ive used the steamer wand its seemed a bit of a faff, maybe with a bit of practise?Posted 5 years agonoshkiSubscriber
I’d second EBay as the best route to a low price,Posted 5 years ago
I got a Delonghi Esam 5400 this week and paid less than half the RRP. There are lots of Factory returns on offer. It does make very good coffee but you still have to experiment to match your preferred strength/taste.
Mine has taken over from a Nespresso and in a lot of ways using a bean to cup improves the whole coffee making experience. You can appreciate more the influence you have on taste and the tinkering is very satisfying. I would also say you need quite a big space for these things to sit on.
I’m currently investigating how to make mine plumbed in.jiMember
Deonghi Magnifica is pretty good. Bought ours from Argos (of all places) having had several excellent Seaco/Gaggia BtC machines imported from Italy and other places long before they were available here.
Nothing beats the simplicity of placing a cup, pressing a button and getting excellent coffee. Yes you can get even better coffee (for a price) but it usually involves more faffing around too.Posted 5 years ago
