Yes. Waiting for the light to come on. Still takes forever to froth a bit of milk.

Nicks in Ranelagh have some nice beans. Think they're 4.50 for 250g, and they'll always give you a free coffee while you're there.

Thanks - but far out - was in the city today and thought while there Id get some coffee - ended up with a selection of 3 types from Bewleys on Grafton Street. Kinda pricey at €6.80 each (250g).

Going try it soon as I use the last beans out of the grinder (a small fault I think - its not so easy to try a different coffee without wasting a cup of coffee beans in the hopper)


ps. frother works flawless for me - enough milk for 1 large lattee frothed in about 20 seconds. Just keep the Plastic Head only very slightly below or even on the surface of the milk - not at the bottom - that way it sucks down air into the milk with the steam.

For future note, you'd get much better and likely fresher beans around the corner in Coffee Angel on South Anne St.

very very tempted!

anyone who purchased it previously have any feedback?
Some of the reviews are mixed on amazon, saying its very VERY loud and apparently not very reliable after just 2 years of use.
Ofcourse you get negative reviews on any product and it does have 583 5 star out of 786 reviews

I did buy it based on this thread

That was 19 months ago and about 2,000 coffees made with this machine. Go for it. Buy one. You will not be disappointed. It is an absolute steal for this kinda money!

Americano is a espresso topped up with hot water - no hot water dispenser on this I think

Yep,t is very loud, no doubt about that.
Makes great coffe, in my opinion, but I am not a very serious coffe geek, nerd or whatever youre having yourself. It is easy to maitain and clean. Had since Oct 14 and made at least 2000 espresso and its right as rain. I tend to go for the mid to high price range at Discount coffee and usually get through befor it gets too stale.

If you look at the CamelCamel stats and currency rates, we really got an amazing deal at the start of this thread

I paid £199 (the lowest price this ever sold anywhere according to CamelCamel) including shipping, which was €250 at the time incl Irish VAT
Now it is £229 so with GBP at around 1.39 this will work out at about €335

Still very cheap for what essentially makes the exact same coffee as a €1000+ higher end (but internally identical) De'Longhi
