I was given a Nespresso machine a few years ago and it did what it said on the tin, but I wasn’t upset when it went bang a couple of weeks back and I happily binned it. Wanting to enter the world of proper espresso I naively replaced it with a Delonghi bean to cup machine, which didn’t really deliver. This in hindsight is hardly suprising. Fortunately it developed a fault and it was returned. What it was useful for was to help me figure out what I wanted, which was a more hands on, learning new skills, kind of approach. Starting from scratch and doing what I should have done before, I’ve spent the last few days reading this and that, and trying to narrow my choices. My original budget was about 350quid which I’ve realised is on the low side but I don’t want to get too out of hand, which I imagine is pretty easy to do. I now appreciate the need for focusing on the grinder first and my early thoughts of a 80/20 split in favour of the espresso machine have been forgotten and had almost decided on a Gaggia Classic with a Rancilio Rocky. Since then I’ve read good reviews of the Iberital MC2 which is less than half the cost of the Rocky. My budget is now looking to be around the £500 area for the grinder & machine and now wonder if I’d be better off with a MC2/Rancilio Silvia set up over the Rocky/Classic. Any thoughts? Bear in mind that size is an issue so a relatively compact set up is what I am after. My needs are mainly espresso or americano, latte’s are a very rare need so a superb steamer isn’t my main focus. I realise this isn’t a particularly original question but it does let me say hi and thank people who have replied to other threads that have got me this position. Also, tampers? Is there more to them than purely aesthetics, apart from being the correct size? Steve
Just like to say Hi to everyone here. I would just like to say really nice forum, looks helpful. I've been drinking and tasting coffee for a good few years now and i enjoy various types and flavours. I recently found Nespresso coffee after watching their T.V ad. I bought my first machine and after a couple of years i still love it. I love the various capsules. Now though i found that Nespresso themselves aren't that big on press releases and there were know other websites which dedicate themselves to Nespresso, so i thought I'd have a go at making an Unofficial Nespresso blog site which tells more people about what Nespresso are doing (Press Realeses). I am looking forward to finding some more aspects on the coffee world here though

Hi this is my first post. I have owned a Nespresso machine for over a year and although I think the coffee is fine I decided to buy a second hand Gaggia Cubika. I live in Scotland where the water is soft so no limescale problem. But I bought the machine from someone in England. I have ran a descaler solution through it but was wondering if there is anything else I should do.? Also I have read reviews that say the rubber seal goes on this machine quite quickly and was wondering if there is a site I could buy replacement seals .? Thanks Brendan
