I have this and love it.
Black same price on Amazon https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B06X3Z9MF3/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apa_i....
Only 3 in stock.
I bought one in the previous Amazon deal.
Average height mugs require the drip tray to be removed. I didn't have to do this on my cheapo Sunbeam.
I can't get a strong enough brew.
I'm not loving it.
I had the same problems with this machine. The pressure is never strong enough to get any decent espresso. Ended up giving it away got a proper espresso machine.
If you're able to spend more then the Breville Bambino Plus is amazing. It's not much bigger and the automatic wand is genius. A few coffee Brewing lessons on YouTube, a good grinder and good coffee beans and you're close to a coffee shop.
I found that it is a little bit temperamental getting the pump to work well with grind, however I spent an hour working out the perfect size grind from my breville grinder and now it gives out pretty much a perfect 60-80mL double espresso shot. I find that every time I change beans, depending on their oiliness/other features, I need to increase or decrease the grind size by 0-2 points either way.
Can try and combine with this if buying some $1+ and also using Cashrewards
Here’s a saucy little item for $1+
I'm not gonna lie… I was hoping for some sort of raunchy Santa Claus…
It’s quite a dish, amiright?
I bought this machine a year or so ago. It looks nice but does not make good coffee. I would not recommend.
Can you elaborate? The reviews for this model are quite positive.
The machine is slow to warm up. You have to wait after frothing for water to heat to use filter function. Coffee filter baskets are strange shape and difficult to fill. Crema is poor and generally coffee doesn't task as good as any other machine I have used.
I have had many machines over the years mostly Breville. Currently have a sunbeam m6900 and bought the delonghi for holiday house.
Go ahead and buy if you like but you would be better off getting something that makes a nice brew. I would recommend a Breville Bambino.
I wish all OZB comments were like the ones on this deal.
I had one of these for a few months, my thoughts:
Plastic tamp was weak, it only came with double-walled filter baskets, and the steam wand had a weird nozzle for stretching milk.
It's cheap at this price I guess, but you will still need to buy a grinder as well. Preground coffee goes bad so quickly (within an hour after it's been exposed to air typically).
I ended up replacing it with a Breville Barista Express 870XL, which hits on all the core essentials of a manual machine imo. I've had that now for 3+ years and much happier with it.
I've had this machine for over a year now from this deal https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/374291.
I bought the non-pressurised basket and a 600g stainless tamp from aliexpress for just over $10 and it makes a pretty good brew in my opinion.
Do you links to the basket and the tamp?
Basket was from Amazon sorry. Looks like t has gone up a few dollars since I purchased but still pretty cheap.
As long as you go 51mm for both you'l be good to go.

Awesome! Thank you for this. Will get it for mine.
@artich0ke: Just need to remove the plastic insert in the group handle to make the basket fit but it's easy to do.
Interested in this too - I got the basket but it didn't fit and I didn't want to ruin my handle or whatever it's called.
Is it one size fits all with this things?
Curious to know the benefit of the non-pressurised basket? Does it give more crema? My machine came with 2 baskets, a smaller one for single shot and a larger one for double shot, and while the coffee taste is ok, there is not as much crema as I'd like.
We've had this for 2-3 years and are quite happy with it. We use the matching Dedica grinder and a Breville milk frother (not the arm on this machine) and it makes what we consider to be a nice cappuccino (we're not experts/major coffee snobs though). I've thought of upgrading to one of the Breville machines that are popular on here (dual boiler or Barista Express) but it just seems wasteful since this still works perfectly well and we're happy with the outputs - will wait until this breaks. We had a pod machine before and this is far better for the environment and fairly easy to use. As someone else suggested we did get a stainless tamp and sometimes need to adjust our grind when we change bean brands.
still available on ebay for $199, if someone is still looking for one
