Sage coffee machine anyone?

OK it's not an LED Lenser, but I just spotted this coffee machine on offer at Amazon for £355. I have the same machine in silver and it is an excellent piece of kit, although I paid quite a bit more for it . This is by far the cheapest that I have seen it.

The funny thing is if I go on a coffee forum (yes they exist!) I'm seen as a relative cheapskate as my coffee kit is only just over £1k. Some people there have a room dedicated to coffee making.

Thank you most kindly for sharing that. We'd looked at them at Christmas and hesitated due to the cost, so seeing it at this price it incredible. Just ordered! The black one looks great too, so absolutely no hardship having to take that one.

Bargain - love my Sage Barista machine. Coupled with a freshly roasted coffee subscription, you can’t beat it.
I guess it seems a lot, but much cheaper than a couple of visits to a Costa each day!

I’ve got a Delonghi bean to cup, was about 500 quid a few years ago and it’s brilliant, enjoy coffee at home now like I never had before.

I was laying in bed last night and having seen this post, went on Amazon and purchased this machine.

It's for that reason that I won't 'appreciate' your post.

Bloody BMW forum spending my money .....

Edit: for £369 you get a two year warranty: https://www.johnlewis.com/sage-baris...8;gclsrc=aw.ds

You get a 2 year warranty from Sage in any case (scroll down to product spec)

Enjoy the new toy!

In all seriousness I never drink instant at home and long for a decent coffee that won't cost me an arm & a leg to make, given I drink at most 4-5 cups a week.

Tried coffee jars with a plunger-type-thing, aero press, cold brew steeped overnight and was recently given one of those one cup Krups things that takes pods. Nothing seems to do it so wonder if I may lack a coffee-compatible palate.

We've got a Nespresso machine and tbh it's fine for latte or cappuccino. I don't drink black coffee so I'm a bit of a coffee cretin to some.

That said, Nero coconut latte is the nuts in my opinion

Two weeks of Sage ownership and I'm a better barrista than anything I've tasted in a coffee shop in ages... Working from home just gets better and better!

I've really enjoyed learning the technique of how to get the coffee and the milk just how I like it. Next step is trying different types of coffee.

Thanks to JD6 for the original post.

Forget the milk.

Decent coffee doesn't need milk.

I know folk on the internet like to be opinionated, and indeed love to confuse opinion with fact, but confusing your personal taste for fact is taking it to a new level.

Glad to hear it's going well. 18 months in and I still think it's an excellent machine.

I have pretty much stopped going to coffee shops or taking the free supermarket coffee as I just don't think they're good enough any more. I used to quite like Caffe Nero, but I can't bring myself to queue for a mediocre coffee!

My preference is for for strong/rich coffees. Having tried all kinds of more specialist coffees, I still haven't found one I like as much as this own brand one from Sainsbury's https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/webapp/...sso-beans-227g

If you want to taste amazing coffee go here:

https://bounbeans.com/

I used to buy Marks and Spencer coffee every day on the way to work. I now have cafetiŤre grind in a french press every day for my fix in one of these:

https://uk.frankgreen.com/?l=stay&gc...hoC8g8QAvD_BwE

The coffee from Boun isn’t cheap but by god it tastes good, you can also chose your roast level. Even the stuff you buy in the supermarket tastes like shit after their coffee.

A coffee forum... a coffee room... what has the world came to?

I might build a super noodle room in my new house. Is there a super noodle forum?

I have the oracle barista touch. Absolutely love it. Used to pick up a coffee everyday so probably got my money back. Cost me a small fortune but I love coffee.

Thing just feels like itís built with quality. Do it.
