Advantages: quick coffee, easy to use,
Disadvantages: expensive for machine and pods
Me and my partner had been looking at coffee makers for ages but never buying lol ... but in the end we decided to invest in one :) . My partner asked around and his sister recommended that we brought this one as its the one that she uses and she said it was brillant .
If im honest looks wise its not the prettiest of coffee machines out there however the its black matt finishes does give it a rather stylish look and smart apeal to it, surrounding the base is a shiny metal which adds to its smart look. The good thing about the machine is that doesnt take up too much space it is about 12" tall and 10" by 8" when measured by the base.
The coffee machine was really easy to use considering id never used one before . All you have to do to make a coffee fill the detachable water tank with approxiametly 750mls of water then place it back in the coffee machine . Then lift the top of the machine place your chosen pod into the pod holder and then simply wait for about 30 seconds for the water to heat up and then push the button and dah dah coffee is made lol. There are many different pod flavours avaliable:-
-Mild, Medium and Dark roast
There are only two downsides to the coffee machine one is thats its a bit hard to clean however, all parts can be cleaned ie the pod holders, spout, drip tray either by hand or in a dishwasher (all dishwasher safe). The second and last downside is that the pods for the coffee machine are rather expensive costing around £2.50 for around 15 pods in Asda which is equal to around 15 coffees .. i think a kettle and jar of coffee works out cheaper lol.
I managed to pick up this senso coffee machine for £45 from argos .. however the price does tend to go up and down regularly so please do check the price before buying. I would say if you want a quick and easy way of getting a cup of coffee then this is definitly good value for money :) so yes i would recommend it.
Summary: good value for money but are cheaper ways
