Sorry if this is in the wrong spot....I am terrible at finding anything but 'new posts' usually
So with Fathers Day coming up, my boys and I would love to get DF a coffee machine for the occasion. He loves a good coffee. I no longer drink coffee, and have absolutely no idea about the pod things or which machines are good. My budget is less than $200.....hit me up with your thoughts ladies.....

I got a de longhi magnificent (spelling?) for Mother's Day & I love it. Pretty much all automatic & self cleaning easy peasy just add beans & water & your good too go. I don't know price though but the coffee is perfect every time & one button push (idiot proof in my case). Highly recommend.

With a budget of less than $200 I'd be inclined to buy second hand
Otherwise something like the Sunbeam Cafe series (you do all the work, not a pod machine)
Aldi pod machine is ok, but after nespresso machine I personally think the aldi machines do not compare at all.
Look at any Jura machines second hand

Thanks ladies! So does better tasting coffee come from the pods or the beans in a machine?
13-08-2013 07:50 #7
I think it depends on taste honestly. I prefer beans but my nespresso was awesome!

If he is serious about his coffee, get a percolator- $12 from Kmart; then get fresh coffee from a reputable roaster. Pods cannot compare.

Love our neapresso pixie, I paid a lot for ours but picked one up for dad for Father's Day (he already has it though!) for $129 after cash back.
He has a beans machine where he has to find the beans first but never used it during the week because it took too long. Now he can quickly make a coffee an have it on the bus on the war to work. Mum said they have saved a bit of money as he isn't buying a coffee everyday.
eta- grind the beans nor find them

He does enjoy a real coffee, I think the beans might be the go.
