Keen to know which brand to buy? Or want to share a great purchase with the rest of us? This is the place to do it...
Am wondering if it was time to move on from cafetiers[sp] to an electric coffee maker has anyone got any tips about ones to avoid/buy ?
Several years ago I bought a Tassimo machine and used it daily. I liked it but found that the discs got more expensive for less in the pack. This wouldn't have been a big problem except that I'm a coffee addict - a friend now has the Tassimo but as he only drinks coffee once a day, he's happy with the cost of the discs. I ended up getting an electric filter coffee maker - no bells and whistles except for a timer so I can come downstairs to the smell of my coffee freshly brewed and it also means that I can experiment with various coffees, not just restricted to what was available for the Tassimo.I think the coffee pod machines are great but if you're drinking 5/6 cups a day (guilty) they can work out to be expensive.
Difficult decision Tilly as there are so very many on the market. I like to read as many reviews as possible before I buy any machine and with regard to coffeemakers I am convinced ( please correct me anyone if I am wrong)that the cheaper ones don't make such a great cup and it is better to invest more and get a really good machine. Makes sense to me as coffee isn't cheap so nothing gained not drinking it at it's full potential. Having said that though, I have read that cafetieres make good coffee. We have used 2 for years now (my husband & I like different strengths, hence 2!) If you drink a lot of coffee as we do and like cappuccino, which we do, then a combo would be good. I recently bought a combo cappuccino/ regular drip machine, but haven't tried it yet. Will be interested to know what you decide.
I bought a filter coffee machine from Lidl and as well as having a dial for the strength it drips the coffee directly into a thermos jug, very handy for taking on to the terrace. I wouldn't consider a pod machine as I think they are very expensive and a bit gimmicky.Wendy
