Or should i stick with the like of Lavazza and bean2cup varieties?
I have the machine for over two years and mostly use these beans: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Coffee-Mast...C7MRBKFA7G3DN5

Failing that I use the Lavazza (red/silver bag).

The Coffee Masters beans are of the shiny type which you refer to above and I have used them for two years with no negative results.

Pop out the grinder using the red buttons once a month and let it sit in boiling water for 30 minutes of so.

It does the trick.

That’s a great bargain for someone. Some cheeky monkey offering 50 quid. The neck of some people.

It's been available from Argos before for less than half that.
Fairly sure I picked it up for 113 a couple of years ago.

Pretty sure the infuser and grinder in both machines is identical so a lot is about esthetics tbh.
