Looking into buying a nespresso machine, as I do love a good espresso, and I was wondering if anyone else out there with a nespresso machine had any recommendations as to which brand or machine to buy?
We are on our second Nespresso machine having given our first to our son. Both have been quite robust and have operated for several years without a problem. The espresso they make is passable, but not top tier. On the other hand they are simple to use and fast.
I recently replaced a Bialetti Moka Express that lasted me 15 years with... another Bialetti! It probably would have lasted at least another 5 years, but I was stuck what to ask for Christmas. They really are hard to beat for value, quality and consistency, and you're not restricted by proprietary coffee pods.
My new one just arrived last week. It’s just the basic one from their website but on the subscription deal. £18 a month for a year and you get that amount credited to buy pods with, a no brainier for quick and half decent espresso. I use an Aeropress otherwise
I purchased one of the cheaper Magimix over two years ago. It’s been brilliant for me. It’s been used daily once or twice and still working well.
Don’t purchase compatible pods made of plastic though. None of them work properly. We don’t live near a Nespresso Boutique (as they like to call them ). So we buy L’Or which work the same as the originals and are often on offer making them cheaper than the originals. We do buy them when we are near a Boutique though.
We had a free milk frother which doesn’t get used Ona daily basis, but it’s there. We also bought 150 capsules and got a pair of free Nespresso cups.
Would I buy another ? Yeah, I will be straight out when this one packs in.
This mornings coffee, L’Or Columbia just milk, not frothed up.
I wouldn't bother with a nespresso machine splash out on a proper bean to cup coffee machine I've had a Saeco Odea for over ten year's great coffee using fresh ground beans much cheaper to run than pods works out 10p a cup at the most.
Saeco are made by gaggia who are the King's of coffee machine's and can by saeco machines of Amazon for not much more than a decent pod machine
