Any opinion on coffee pod coffee machines?
Don't buy one. Buy one that uses loose coffee so you have freedom of choice and are not tied to the branded pods.
depends how much you want to spend on the pods. they're not cheap.
We have those but Maleficent has a hankering for a pod machine.
I must admit I prefer a filter-machine for the very reason sparleghirl says.
You can get very good espresso machines for loose coffee, doesn't have to be filter.
I had one for a birthday present once. It made lovely coffee although the pods are expensive and when it stopped working it couldn't be mended as the whole thing was a sealed unit.
I don't like coffee.
I have used this for 40 years and it works just fine. Looks pretty too.
Rancilio Silvia. It will set you back close to 500 pounds but is the closest you will get to the cafe experience of Italy.
Wouldn't it be better to find out what do Italian cafes use to make coffee with and use the same?
I lust after one of these, when I have my kitchen done...
but I also lust after one of these, too and can't see either of them happening!
The picture i failed to post is a Russell Hobbs percolator now described as vintage.
They use Rancilio machines. I had mine imported.
You do have expensive taste!
I really regret getting my pod machine. I had a lovely steam machine with milk frother before and only replaced it with the pod machine because I was skint at the time. I've gone back to my trusty old Lavazza stove top maker.
Well there you go then. We've found the answer. How much per cup do you reckon it costs over its lifetime, aitch?
Cafetiére for us. Low maintenance, inexpensive and simple.
I said I lusted after them...not that I was likely to have them!!
And if the electricity fails, you can still make a coffee (if you have gas)
