Think the White Glove service is offered for both the Sage DB and The Oracle? Don't think it is for machines lower down the range though?

Just read it, thanks. What a pity, really. Understandable though.

Great post for beginners like me, although my Italian friends would shudder at the very last paragraph: cappuccino at a dinner party? Unthinkable!

Just joined this forum and boy is there so much to learn. I bought a Europiccola in 2002 and couldnt really get the quality of cappucino that i hoped but with no other help i gave up with it and put it in the garage to be replaced by a nespresso set up. Been very happy with nespresso & aerocinno (I can feel readers shuddering) because of its ease of use and consistency. I have now retired (so have more time on my hands) and want to have another go with the Europiccola just as soon as i replace the seals in the headgear. Im now looking for a grinder (it needs to look good if im allowed to have it in the kitchen) and at the moment trying to decide if the Eurika Mignon mk2 is the one for me.

 

Thanks for the guide at least It appears i have a reasonable starter coffee machine (once i have sorted the seals)

Thanks a lot for the info. I'm just looking to get an espresso machine. The guide has definitely helped me understand what kind of machines I should look at.

Thanks for such a detailed guide Glenn. This was the first post I have read on the forum, so a good start!

 

Does anyone have any experience with or views on the Sage Dual Boiler espresso machines? They are priced at around £1000.

They are generally well regarded on here. Do you have a grinder yet?
