A mate has just bought the Sage Barista Touch. It's the absolute business.

Sage Barista Express. You can spend more for Touch or Oracle for the gadgets, but can't imagine the coffee will taste different albeit I'm sure they introduce a bit more automation to the process. Know a few people with them and say they're the business.

If you like coffee by the gallon Iíd recommend getting a moka stove top pot.

Makes your kitchen smell great and the coffee is better than any capsule.

Just buy a french press for a few quid, and it's as handy as making tea from tea bags.

Sage Bambino Plus, along with the Sage grinder. Not having to manually steam the milk is great.

Have one of these, have it about 5 years now, great job - but, I thought I wanted a good coffee machine but in reality I know fek all about good coffee and would have probably gotten as much from a decent nespresso type machine, just worth considering how much of a coffee connoisseur you really are, as I had ideas above my station!

Can't get into coffee at all, just a taste that I can't get on with..

Like the idea of 'going for coffee' but end up with a cup of tea!

Bought myself a De'Longhi Coffee Machine - after a recommendation from a co worker

Espresso/Double
Small Coffee/Large Coffee
Milk Frother

Think its the bees knees, I trial different types of coffee beans each week, could spend £10 on 1kg of Beans, do in and around 2-3 weeks. Its a great job, dont know why i didnt get one before now. Worth every penny - used to stop and get a coffee most mornings, absolute muck. Have a good travel mug.

Same as me. I like the idea of it but I just donít like hot drinks.

I've only really got into Coffee in the past few years (Cyclists are awful awful wankers about Coffee), you really don't be long spunking a lot of money on them on a daily basis, an Americano and my daily newspapers were regularly costing me £30-£40 p/w. For the New Year I've cut back and started buying those boxes of Lattes/Caupucinnos, does the job - but I'm not a fully fledged Coffee w**ker.

For me a cuppa tea is bliss, I'm resisting the chocolate this month, difficult especially when I've been flat out on chocolate over xmas!

Back in training, after a spell off with a damaged knee (wear/tear) never had beer belly before so its an interesting challenge
