    I dont drink Coffee but .............

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I am looking at purchasing a machine for a new shop in the next couple of months.

    Coffee unfortunately gives me the most awful headaches and I have not touched it for the last 20 years.

    As I have no idea about all the types of coffee drinks, I was thinking of getting a coffee pod machine, which would be easy to run and make a reasonable cup of coffee. *I expect it would only be used max 10 times a day. I have seen the advert for the LAVAZZA BLUE LB1000 and I know you will all can me but is it OK or are there any better machines on the market? *:-[

    Ill put the tin hat on now *;)

    Gday CoffeeArt, welcome and commiserations ;)

    The ease of use and cleanup for pod machines has obvious appeal but unfortunately the coffee in the pods is stale long before you purchase it and the resulting cup is little better than instant coffee.

    For best results a manual espresso machine and separate grinder is the go; this will involve a learning curve for everyone using the machine - not to mention discipline in cleaning up after use - but has the potential for better-than-cafe coffee.

    If this isnt realistic, there are also super automatic machines that have inbuilt grinders and will make a coffee at the push of a button - but the results wont be as good and they have a reputation for requiring frequent and expensive maintenance!

    Id recommend giving one of the sponsors (listed on the left of the page) a call to discuss your requirements and budget - theyre the experts and can at least give you an idea of the pros and cons of the various options.

    Good luck!

    I used to get coffee headaches--mostly from instant. I have NEVER had a headache from a good espresso.
    Good luck with the machine.

    I think your right, I might just have to go and have a chat to someone to find out a bit more about the machines. Thanks for the help.

    The funny thing is, I cant even stand the smell of coffee anymore. Maybe I will try a cup once I have a machine and get it working properly.
