What is the best coffee machine to buy.

Depends on what sort of coffee you like, how mu hyou drink and what you want to spend. I have a Delonghi Magnifico bean to cup machine and it is the best gadget/appliance I have ever bought. If you are a serious coffee drinking household then I highly recommend it.

I don't like Gaggia Brera bean to cup one. in-fact I wouldn't rate any of those machines from my experience as you will find they are mostly plastic portrayed as metal. and for £2-£500 I expect it to be made well, to stay pristine looking. These are not and do not. The silver/chrome colour wears off and looks cheap and nasty once it starts, then all you do is look at it thinking I can't stand it, you dump it in a cupboard and don't use it.

May I suggest:

Work out if you really would use one, weather you like the traditional pot which serves a family (or like me your greedy self) or if you like the cup. Personally I am a pot girl. I love coffee, and love the smell of a pot brewing first thing in the morning (it really gets me motivated).
Go to a place like steamer trading / lakeland specialist kitchen shops and have a good look at them all touch them remove parts, get the feel of them and read the manuals/ ask advice. Or if you don't have a kitchen superstore near you read all of the reviews. But I personally wouldn't pay more than £50 for a plastic machine even with all the bells and whistles (I feel it's a waste so much so I now have a cheap coffee pot which I love, I don't use the timer and if it shows ware I know I will use this type of machine now so I will just buy another but try a more expensive machine).

Nesspresso every time. The coffee is fabulous, it,s easy to use, I can make espresso, latte,mocha,cappuchio, whatever. The coffees are single estate by and large and the flavour is to die for. Only drawback is that it,s really only a single cup machine, in as much as the milk frothier only holds enough for one really good cup of latte or cappuccino.Magimix Nespresso U 11340 Coffee Maker, Black

Hia Carole, how are you?

Yes nesspresso do make great coffee. My friend has one, what puts me off about the nesspresso is, it's just not cost effective. The pods are too expensive to be used regular or as a main drink, which would mean I would have to substitute great coffee as my main drink with instant.

I suppose you just have to work out what is more affordable for me it wouldn't be attainable. I have both a book and a coffee habit to feed lol

I know what you mean, tea is my main bevvy, the coffee is a little luxury and indulgence thing for me. In your case I would heartily recommend a stove top model, you can choose your own coffee and it,s lovely compared to other machine I have tried at friends homes and such, they just don,t deliver., and they can be fiddly, plus, if you like it really hot, forget it.
