    !!!SOLD!!! - Nespresso Creatista Plus as new 60% off RRP! Original box and packaging

    This is the model: Breville BNE800BSS Creatista Plus Capsule Machine. It is the STAINLESS STEEL version.

    https://www.nespresso.com/au/en/crea...11_Creatista_8

    I use Colonna capsules which on other machines have had flow issues, but no problem with this machine, the way the machine pierces and engages the capsule is really strong with strong and steady flow. The control over the beverage weight is superb.

    I cannot say how impressive the automatic milk foaming steam wand is: perfect temperature every time with good microfoam such that I could do some pretty good latte art.

    I am selling this machine which has had very light use and is in absolutely perfect condition as I have been drinking filter coffee almost exclusively now for the last three months and haven't touched the Creatista! I always used this Cafetto @ Home Pod Cleaner :: DESCALING :: COFFEE CLEANING :: Bombora Coffee...commercial link removed as per Site Posting Policy every 1-2 weeks when I was using the machine (which I highly recommend) and the taste of the espresso from the Creatista is exactly the same as when it was brand new. The cafetto pod cleaner really keeps it crystal clean with no build up of coffee oils or odour.

    40% of the retail price of $799 (which I paid, can provide receipt on demand, I'm sure it's filed away somewhere) is $320. That's 60% off! I have the original box and packaging for safe shipping at buyer's expense or pick up in Melbourne.

    Thanks!

    Yeah..........No! I do however need a machine to test some pods I'm having made!
    The steam arm looks pretty interesting. It may replace mum and dads "milk frother" once I'm done with it!

    I have noticed a massive difference in the way that the Breville Creatista pierces the pods/capsules. The Colonna capsules (which you should check out, I'm happy to give you a few sleeves if you do buy it, they are very impressive) are made of plastic, and it's quite hard to pierce. I have had both a Pixie and an Inissia (current models which were donated to family) and they really struggled to pierce the plastic capsule, resulting in inconsistent flow and poor extractions. My parents' older De Longhi "U" machine was totally unable to even pierce these capsules and could not produce any coffee.

    I guess what I'm saying is, the Creatista has a very strong manual lever that really effectively pierces the capsule. Hence this would be a good machine to test pods/capsules you are having made. Of course if you're happy with the pods with this machine and are going to distribute them, I would also get one of the "lesser" machines to see if you get the same results.

    Nespresso has a patent on the aluminium capsules so nobody is allowed to use this material which is obviously the easiest to pierce.

    Hi all,

    Just some additional information and photos (recently I had a request to send photos to an interested buyer which I did but didn't receive a response).

    The machine has a warranty balance of 17 months (purchased in November 2016 and has a 2 year warranty) and I have the receipt.

    Also please see attached photos, not a mark on it and as I said maintained really well with the Cafetto pod cleaning solution regularly. Extremely light use and as new.

    The advertised price is my lowest price as for anything less than that I would prefer to give it to my mother as a gift.

    Thanks, Ben
