    Very good coffee machine

    Although my current grinder isn't quite up to the task, I could make very tasty americanos and lattes straight out of the box using the single wall basket (haven't tried the pressurised basket but expect good shots out of good pre-grounded coffee) / auto milk function. What I like (aside from the machine's compact footing and looks) is that it will give me room to learn and then tune in barista skills in addition of getting really good coffees from home. Totally worth the price ??.

    Sage bambino plus

    Relatively compact machine which is exactly what I wanted to fit in my small kitchen. I wanted smart looking stainless steel as an upgrade from my plastic pod machine, though I hadn’t anticipated how smudged the steel would get. The machine is quite light so when you insert and lock the in place you need to hold the machine to stop it moving, hence the smudges. I like the option for automatic or manual functions. The drip tray sits loosely at the bottom of the machine, I’d prefer it if it clicked in to place. Overall really pleased with the cup of coffee it produces.

    Compact and professional

    It's stylish, compact and it's truely a professional espresso coffee machine on a price wich reflects its qualities . BUT IT'S WORTH IT ! :)

    Upgrade from Duo Temp Pro

    We've had Sage coffee machines for about 5 years now and we drink a lot of coffee! We had the Duo Temp Pro twice before (we killed it after an excessive amount of coffees and not regular enough maintenance). I prefer this one: it offers a 'walk away' experience. You can program your shot extraction length so all you do is push a button. The milk is automatic and it makes a gorgeous cuppa. It has built in idiot features like it won't let you make a shot without enough water in the tank, it will tell you when it needs a clean and descale. In my busy life, these are valuable. The only down is that it doesn't seem quite as solid and heavy as the Duo Temp Pro, but for me, so far (1 week in) I am in love!

    Great for the price

    Well built, makes a nice cup of coffee and for the price performs well. Auto milk is a nice touch as my girlfriend has very little interest in getting too involved with the ins and outs of espresso.

    Great machine with great aftercare.

    Overall a great machine but annoyingly for the cost build quality seems off. Drip tray does not seat correctly and causes water to spill on worktop. At least it is covered by full warranty and claiming is a breeze so aftercare is spot on. Some great features on this little machine including auto milk steaming and a super quick heat up time make it a winner still

    Better coffee than at my previously favourite cafe!

    I used to have a pod coffee machine which never quite made the coffee exactly the way I want it. This machine is a real example of dynamite coming in small packages! Along with a sage grinder and the Bambino coffee machine I can now make coffee exactly as I like it with ease and consistency! I have no desire to head out to a cafe anymore as my coffee at home quite frankly is better!

    Great small size coffee. Perfect for home coffee latte/cappuccino drinker

    Again, only had this product for few weeks so my feedback is based on what I think of the product so far: Pro: - Small well made coffee machine (slightly bigger than Tassimo pod coffee machine) - Make good coffee - Milk frothing easy with it one touch button. Can set temperature and forth level. Can also manually froth like professional shop. - Quick startup to make coffee - Includes milk jug, water filter and descaling tablet Cons: - Be nice if they had online video manual compare to apps step by step long boring manuals. Watch other Youtube video for instruction how to use and wash.
