Hoping this is in the right place. I'd like to hear the pros and cons of your pod coffee machines.
We've had a Saeco A Modo Mio for about 7 years (!!) and really like it - it's done so well to last 7 years with daily use but it's finally kicked the bucket. My only complaint with it is the cost and limited range of the capsules - about $12 for box of 16 and no other brands are compatible.
So we're considering switching to another brand but it's so confusing and hard to know. Our priorities are:
- cost, we don't want a $400 machine
- quality - we use it daily
- ease of use - preferably want something that includes its own milk frother that's super easy to clean/change as DH and I have different milks (ours had a wand we used a milk jug with - this is fine)
- preferably good range of capsules, preferably can take other/generic brand capsules
Would be great if it makes both short and long blacks, some level of user control ie can put how much milk we want in as apposed to the machine deciding.
Thanks in advance!
