Bean-to-cup coffee machines might not be for the purists, but for the rest of us that love the taste of freshly ground beans but don’t want the hassle of a ‘proper’ espresso machine a bean-to-cup is the answer.
They’re not cheap, which is why we always look out for big discounts. But while scouring the web looking for Prime Day deals, we spotted this sweet deal. And because it isn’t from Amazon, it means the deal is open to everyone: no Amazon Prime membership needed.
The deal in question is on the De’Longhi Dinamica. Its official RRP is £499, but Coffee Friend has discounted it to £319.
This is cheaper than Very (£379) and Amazon (£375). And in case you’re concerned about buying from a retailer you’ve not heard of, Coffee Friend has excellent ratings on TrustPilot.
It is worth noting that this is the ECAM350.15.B model. It’s the 15 that’s important here: it’s the base model which doesn’t have the nice LCD display of the 35. There are more models in the range, including the 55 and 75 which have a built-in milk dispenser.
The B simply means it’s black: it’s possible to get it in silver too.
If you can live without the display and automatic milk frother (there’s a manual wand for your cappuccinos and other milky coffees) then this is a great way to get your morning fix for less.
And a good reminder that the prices you see on Amazon aren’t always the lowest.
