    Default Best shop/outlet in north west to see expresso machines for sale and demo'd

    I would like to pay a visit to an organisation that can demonstrate machines to see in action before I purchase. Any there any such places reachable from the north west?

    I may be wrong but I don't think there is anywhere resembling Bella Barista at Wellingborough.

    To see the Sage range you could try a John Lewis store. I have also seen them on demo in other large kitchen shops, we have Steamer Cookwear stores near us but I’m not sure if they are nationwide.

    There isn't one . Really there isn't . Its a small market , there may be some commercial showrooms for roasters etc but got home users I dont know of one.
    Glasgow has one other than that you are looking at Bella Barista or some Sage stuff at a John Lewis.

    recommended by who? They sell commercial machines and are not suitable for the home user. Did you really join the forum to post that......next you will tell us you are not associated with them!

    We have a steamer trading shop in St Albans that does sage machines (first place I found an oracle touch). So I guess they're countrywide?

    This company are great, not quite the setup of BB but a true Northern friendly atmosphere and good on prices, for the sake of a phone call once you settle on a particular machine, give them a ring.
