Great product , problems with the range of pods
1 December 2018
Great coffee from a good looking machine which does not use up much space on the work surface. It's a bit noisy but i'm told all pod machines are. Although the emphasis is on simplicity, it has a few neat touches: you can 'programme' the buttons to dispense just the right amount of coffee for you, although it's a bit annoying that there is no easy way to reset to default values. The range of pods looks impressive on paper, but is dwarfed in the shops by the choice for Nespresso. Also, my wife only drinks decaffeinated and found their decaf 'bitter'; this is unfortunate as Lavazza only have one decaf in the range ! My main reason for buying Lavazza was the promise of compostable pods, which is a great idea for eco nerds like me, but I cannot find them in the shops and at an eye watering £3.40 delivery for a small box of 6 compostable pods (£2.20) from Lavazza UK HQ, they work out at just under £1 a coffee! Disappointing, but the coffee is that popular in our house that we will just have to put up with it.
