Re: Coffee Machine

Hi,

Yes, a used coffee machine (under 100CHF). Also, a new coffee machine under 200CHF.

Cheers

Re: Coffee Machine

Last year migros had a special offer because they had a new coffee machine to sell so they where selling the old stock for 49frcs (should of been 300frcs) maybe wait a little and see if speacial offers come on the market.

Re: Coffee Machine

Do you want one that uses capsules, or do you want one that is able to use your choice of coffee? Do you want a filter machine or an espresso type of machine?

Re: Coffee Machine

and Migros has a Delizio Coffee machine that will play music for you while you brew a cup of java..

(isn't that the dumbest thing you ever heard of..?)

Which is best, capsules or filter ? I am looking for one that is simple, easy cleaning with a choice of either espresso, or coffee

Re: Coffee Machine

If you're not a heavy coffee drinker capsules are the best because every cup of coffee will be made from fresh coffee beans. Ground coffee that has been sitting in an open bag for months on end surely has to be stale and less flavorful.

Nespresso costs the most and tastes the best but you have to order the capsules by mail and order 200+ if you want to avoid the 5.- chf. delivery charge.
Migros Delizio taste good, they are cheaper and are available at any Migros.
That's the reason I switched from Nespresso to Delizio)

How much will I be paying for Delizio in Migros ? Can I buy the capsules in Migros ? Does Coop have any good brands also ?

How about going out and having, you know, an old fashioned look around?

Oh, well, it's like ebay, (which you could try as well). There is a French option too, if that help?

Another option is to look in the newspaper in the small ads section or the announcement board at at the supermarket.

Maybe I'm making things too complicated: Perhaps there are new machines in that price range?

Re: Coffee Machine

Hi,

I have had a Nespresso machine (called Capri) for two years and have found it fantastic. It cost about CHF new, you can buy many different blends of coffee in capsule form, and there is hardly any cleaning necessary. you can get the cpasules by mail but also at Nespresso boutiques, which are in all the big towns. Also it is compact and takes up little space.

Thoroughly recommend it.
