    Underneath the price it says:

    Shop with points: 26,533

    Does that mean you must have that many DJ points to purchase this, or something else?

    Previous prices for this machine have been at $250. Fantastic Machine, I've purchased one as a gift in the past.

  •  

    I’ve got this for 199$ plus 80$ cash back from Nespresso, it was a sweeeet deal!

  •  

    I've purchased this in the previous deal ($199), the only down side is that it's not smart enough to communicate (compatible) with Alexa.

  •  

    It seems has a bad review.

  •  

    The description dopsn't cleary say, but can we assume that "Nespresso" means its a pod machine, or does it use regular ground coffee?

  •  

    just ordered! Thanks

  •  

    Happy with my capsule machine, but need a good frother.Is the aeroccino a decent frother?

  •  

    Some DJs stores have nespresso reps. Worth asking if there are any promotions available.

  •  

    Awesome deal. Thank you!

  •  

    hmm but the real question is should i get sealpods and coffee beans

  •  

    any deal for a coffee machine with bean and ground?

  •  

    Being waiting for deals like this, nice post OP. I'm still thinking of getting a cheaper nespresso machine. DeLonghi Essenza Mini seems to be an ideal one, waiting for the capsule credit promotion.

  •  

    NICE just bought one!

    Seems to be still available.

  •  

    Wow, combo this with the AMEX vouchers that are bought and this machine will only cost $120, seems like a very good deal!

    Since my capsule machine from this deal died recently I have been in the market for a replacement. Things to note about the Nespresso machines:
    - can't buy the Nespresso capsules from Coles or Woolies. You need to order them online from Nespresso
    - the cheapest capsules from Nespresso are twice the price of other brand capsules and contain less coffee (5gm vs Caffitaly 8gm)
    - capsules are made of Al not plastic and can be recycled. You can purchase a prepaid shipping bag from Nespresso for $2 that allows you to send back up to 100 capsules for recycling

    In the end I paid a lot more and went with an automatic bean to cup machine because although the initial cost is higher, the cost per cup is lower and I calculated I'd be in front after 1.5 years of use. Also generates less waste (no waste really, apart from used coffee grounds).

    •  

      What bean to cup machine did you get? And how do you maintain bean freshness?

      •  

        I went with this Delonghi Magnifica S: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/385420
        Advertised as a factory second but in fact they sent me a brand new unit for some reason.

        So far I've been buying beans from a local place that roasts once a week.

        Noticed a big step up in flavour compared to capsules.

    •  

      What were the calculations out of curiosity? You can purchaes compatible capsules from Coles/WW for around $0.45 per capsule when on sale.

      • +1 vote

        The calculation was based on a household with two coffee drinkers including one who works from home most days. Plus regular visits from coffee drinking family and friends.
        We probably should have switched away from a pod machine years ago, but enjoyed the convenience.
        You are paying as much as $100/kilo for the coffee in Nespresso capsules vs $20 to $40 a kilo for decent beans (Woolies sells coffee beans as cheap as $12/kilo - not sure if it's any good however!).

    •  

      actually
      -Nespresso compatible pods are available at coles and woolworths (not nespresso brand but compatible)
      - nespresso pods are actually aluminium. can be recycled in many drop off points not requiring the bag. They are at city and rural areas

      yes auto machines have their place however are only really ideal for high volume coffee drinkers who are happy to keep up with the maintenance
      ps coffee grounds make a great fertiliser. if you have a compost chuck them in there or even just in the garden

      •  

        Yep, Nespresso pods are Al whereas Caffitaly all appear to be plastic and don't offer any recycling options as far as I'm aware.
        I don't feel there is that much more maintenance required for an auto machine compared to a pod machine, at least for the auto machine I got.

    •  

      There is a whole massive section of nespresso pods in both coles and woolies, like it is the main component of the coffee section….

      If you want thave less pod waste, I'd suggest SealPod reusable pods. Although I would say that buying the sticky lids for them can be expensive (even in bulk they are ~$100 for 1200 stickers).

      To be honest, if you want great coffee with no waste, I'd suggest a NanoPresso, it's portable, can use any coffee, simple hand pump action (no electricity except for the boiling water from your kettle) tiny enough to take anywhere and well made. They are like ~$70 on special. Then just by a cheapo milk frother if you want aerocino style milk.

      The NanoPresso basket is 8grams, but you can buy an upgrade to 16 grams with the barista kit which is another ~$30.

  •  

    They are pods tho right? Does one machine make a pod coffee any better than another?

    •  

      The simplicity of pods, clean and extremely easy to use for a consistent cup time after time.
      All the Nespresso machines have essentially the same “engine” (19 bar pump) under the hood.
      Hence the consistency between machines and brands of machines.
      The pods keep things clean and easy to use. The pods keeps the same amount of coffee each time.

      • +1 vote

        I would like to get a machine but I want to know why pay $200 for this one vs $100 for another if they use the same pods and have the same engine under the hood?

        I don't drink coffee but need something for the Mrs and people that come over. Not that price sensitve either it is that I just don't understand the comparison from my question above.

          Nespresso is better than other capsule systems in my opinion. I can taste the difference very easily. I wouldn't even buy the other capsule machines, or consider getting one for anyone I know. The Nespresso ecosystem, flavour, quality and machines is worth the extra.

        •  

          You only paying for marketing. There are a lot of fan bois who would pay extra for a limited edition colour.

          @OnlinePred:

          "The Nespresso ecosystem, flavour, quality and machines is worth the extra."

          Yes you needlessly pay extra for the ecosystem, but nespresso pods have a horrible flavor.

          Quality? Maybe in build quality of the machine, but not the coffee. Unless you go the SealPod route or equiv. like I posted above.

          But once you go down that route, you really start to question why you aren't just brewing your own favourite coffee beans in another way…

        •  

          @serpserpserp: I love coffee, I would consider myself a semi snob, but I'm not at the point where the only good coffee I can have is one I make in certain ways. The nespresso machine with a pod flavour you like can and is great value and consistently makes great tasting coffee that is better than most shitty cafes where there isn't hipster with a beard making the coffee.

          For $150 you can't go wrong unless you are a complete snob.

        •  

          This model has some features the other Nespresso machines don't have.

          Americano mode
          Water temperature setting
          Bluetooth connectivity
          - Control settings and make coffee remotely, including scheduled
          - Notification when coffee capsules running out

          Bluetooth features work as advertised but really just a gimmick. It can't control the attached milk warmer. You have to manually add the milk to your coffee. You still need to insert a capsule.

          If you take coffee without milk you could put a capsule and water in the night before and put your cup in place. Then either schedule or remotely make it before getting out of bed.

          Definitely not worth $599 but worth a go with this deal.

        •  

          @tbone74:

          So basically, none of the features are worth a dime.

          With coffee you always want really hot water. I guess for hot choc or tea or something you might want something not as hot.

        •  

          @OnlinePred:

          Don't get me wrong, I can make a good coffee with a nespresso machine and still do, I just can't stand the nespresso pods. The third party ones are slightly better, the limited edition pods nespresso do are hit and miss, there was 1 version they did about 5-6 years ago which was awesome, but never found a good one since. They all just have this horrid after taste, in a blind test i'm pretty sure I could pick a nespresso pod from a third party pod or just other coffee put into a pod every time.

      •  

        I see. So it will still taste weak even with a more expensive machine. I guess thats what happens when they put such a small amount of coffee in a pod.

        •  

          yeah this is what I don't get. It will taste the same as a $100 Nespresso machine, same pod and its hot water…

          I'm not trying to sh*t on this beacause I want to get something and this seems an easy option for me to make coffee for people but if there is no difference in taste, how was this $500 and it makes coffee the same as a cheaper Nespresso machine?

          Ideally I want to get the breville espresso maker, I wouldn't mind doing that for people at home but the Mrs is ok with instant… where i don't think guests are

        •  

          @FreshPrinceofKP: I find that while instant coffee does the job, its nice to serve something a bit special to guests. If you want the cheapest good way to get a nice cuppa, get yourself a stove top percolator. Just buy a cube of pre-ground coffee and keep it in an airtight container and use it as needed, it'll last years. Once you put the coffee on, it takes a few minutes so you have time to microwave the milk if they want it.

          I personally drink coffee daily and use a automatic machine which grinds the beans for me fresh and makes a beautiful short black with a really thick crema. Much stronger then the pods but that's because I set it to use much more coffee (its still cheaper then pods). But it cost much more than the stove top one I take when we go away.

        •  

          @FreshPrinceofKP:

          I think the $100 machines don't come with the milk frother. That is kinda what the extra is for.

        •  

          I do a long shot and it's fine for me and my coffee drinking friends. A short shot isn't very strong.

  •  

    I'm calling this post the BARGAIN OF THE YEAR!!!! thank you sooo much

  •  

    Just grabbed one where is the cheapest place to buy the pods

    •  

      Proprietary or Compatible?

    • +1 vote

      Coles and Woolies sell Nespresso compatible pods. Each to their own but I find that L'Or brand pods are a good substitute for genuine Nespresso Pods. They are often on sale for $4.50 per box of 10. Vittoria brand pods are also just ok in a caffeinated emergency.

      •  

        I actually use to love the coles branded ones (the 12 No. strength) out of all the supermarket pods. I think they were less than $3 a pack of 10 so a bit of a bargain. I can't drink them anymore though, had waaaaaaaaaay to many over the years.

      Try these guys. Pods are biodegradable. For cheapest price register for monthly delivery then cancel.

      •  

        I tried them, and although they were good, I couldn't get any consistent results, and they never tasted as good as nespresso pods. I want to find a good alternative mostly for waste reasons.

        •  

          Get Sealpods then, Solves the waste problem.

          •  

            @serpserpserp: I tried but couldn't get a good consistent prove out of them

            •  

              @OnlinePred: Find the bean that you love, set the grind for a mocha grind or slightly finer depending on your preference, weigh your grind so it is consistent, don't tamp hard, but make sure you have an even, firm packing in the pod, ensure sealpods are dry before use.

              You have to play for awhile but once you have it, it works a treat. You have to use two pods per milk coffee I find.

              •  

                @serpserpserp: If I buy a grinder, I'm not going to use pods haha

                •  

                  @OnlinePred: Just get it pre-ground at the store, I do, just depends on the bean brand if I get it at a mocha grind or one notch finer. Really, it comes down to how you pack the pod and after some practice, you get great flavor out of it.

                  But to be honest, now I have moved onto the nanopresso and milk frother setup (which is even cheaper than this, fast and environmentally friendly) I get much closer to that mecca of coffee at home. Don't have a grinder yet but when I do, it'll be even better.

                  •  

                    @serpserpserp: Yea I had it ground at the store. The ground goes off far too quick. I only have a handful of coffees a week. No real choice for that. No coffee has tasted as good as genuine pods still for me. Depending on the milk, I can get very close to cafe coffee.

                    •  

                      @OnlinePred: Sorry, nespresso pods just taste very different to what you get in a café or top notch coffee joint. They all have a certain taste to them that are distinctively nespresso coffee pod. Great if you love the taste, but it is a taste you get nowhere else, good or bad.

                      •  

                        @serpserpserp: How did you brew on nespresso? I do one capsule for a long shot with a small bit of milk for a perfect small flat white. Typically use arpeggio or roma. In my opinion with milk, these coffees taste better than some cafes easily.

  •  

    Is this deal expired?? I wnat to buy this but it is $599.
    Can you help please

  •  

    how does nespresso compare with the Aldi ones
    (hope I don't step on some raw nerves like android vs iphone)

    have said earlier just want to know if there is a good frother out there, don't like the aldi frother

  • +1 vote

    Unsure if this deal is still available as an online purchase, the DJ's website is showing $599. I called my local store confirmed the $199 price and made sure they still had stock prior to picking up my purchase - Just an FYI to any one interested in getting one of these - (Chatswood Chase still has a few)

  •  

    I just got one from Sydney store. They still have some stock.
