I just bought it there. This machine has got some real good reviews.

This will be a replacement for my dolce gusto which I have at the moment.

Which is literally dropping a tablet or solution into the machine and turning it on. Wait 20 mins and it's done

plus the "Nespresso's" and I presume the other pod machines have to be descaled too.

And brew group removal and cleaning, occasional lubrication, infrequent o ring replacement and, depending on machine, ideally some minor disassembly to clean parts not on the instructions. Hey, I don't mind that (I'm on my second bean to cup) but it IS more than a pod machine, which is the question that was asked.

Did you have to pay extra for the super saver delivery?

1. Pre-heat/warm your cups, I use the first flush from the machine when switched on or the kettle.
2. Mine has heat setting, set using some combination of switching on and off and holding buttons down. Have a look in the manual.

"Super Saver Delivery" is the term Amazon use for free delivery.

Just hope that it continues as, as of yesterday they have dropped super saver delivery to a number of European countries.

Yeah, I used to buy loads from Amazon but went to place an order this morning and found that they had dropped super saver delivery to Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Gibraltar, Iceland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal or Sweden.

I cant see them dropping it to Ireland. Free shipping is cheap enough to Ireland, as they post most of the stuff in Ireland using An Post.

Bought one of these last month (well the black version) - really great machine.

At the end of the 1Kb bag of Espresso Magnifico Lidl beans which I'm sorry i didn't buy more when they had them - so keeping an eye on this thread in case anyone has anymore recommendations for beans
