An excellent buy

 

Our local Gaggia service centre made such a mess of our old Classic that we had to write it off. Online evaluations of the new model of the Classic were mediocre, and so we started to look around and felt that the Sage (US, Breville) was the most...

Disappointment!

 

This machine does not produce a better cup of coffee than my Nespresso machine, and it is merely more fiddly. I gave it a fair trial for some months but have now returned to my Nespresso system. It's less fussy, and better tasting. If you love your...

Thrilling

 

I love my coffee and have previously owned a Duaiit and a Gaggia. It's difficult to describe how amazing this machine is. It's consistently perfect and coffee tastes amazing when made this well. A fantastic creme and subtleties in the flavour of the...

Great coffee and a pleasure to use

 

Real pleasure to use this machine, a machine that does exactly what it says with minimum of fuss. Once you have learnt the process delivers great coffee and textured milk every time. Easy to clean. Only tip would be to get a milk thermometer to ensure...

Great step up from basic machines

 

Bought as a replacement for a 10+ year old Gaggia Kubica after lots of research. Very happy with the machine so far and the automatic flushing through of cold water to bring the machine back to espresso temperature after steaming milk is a great...

Cool; maybe too cool.

 

Machine delivers an excellent shot of espresso. Probably one of the best for this price point. Only advise would be use the steam wand before pulling your espresso as the machine struggles to get to temperature. I thought it was a fault at first but...

Pretty good coffee machine!

 

Very good - does what it says on the tin with lots of nice additional features and finishing touches. Highly recommend.

Nice coffee. Rubbish froth

 

The machine is easy to use. It makes nice coffee, and although the milk is steamed well and very hot, it is almost impossible to make it nice and frothy. My old Krupps machine did a better job.

Expensive but I (mostly) like it

 

It costs twice the price of the equivalent Dualit which I was replacing after 5 years decent service. The demonstrator lady knew nothing about it. It makes good coffee using the method which is standard across espresso pump machines. Irritating problem...

Great coffee maker

 

This was bought as a replacement for a very old Gaggia machine which was becoming a bit temperamental. I found the Sage easy to set up and use and i am really happy with the results I get from it. It consistently makes a great cup of coffee, be it...
