My coffee machine is unwell, not yet sure if it's terminal 🥲 He's 'turning on, but won't progress to actually making coffee!!!'
(Philips Senseo, light changing from fast to slow but not getting as far as staying on and cup buttons doing nothing)
I'm trying to get him fixed, but no luck so far. We seem to have lost all the small appliance repairers. Throw away culture I suppose, since products got cheaper)
I love him & wouldn't have ever chosen to change from him, but had decided when the day came I'd go bean to cup as I'm fed up of the hassle/expense of getting the (limited range) of coffee pads (they're like tea bags)
He makes a decent size coffee (I'd say 175-200 ml) which I add cream (not milk) to.
I've used Nespresso machines (with pods) but they don't make enough coffee even using 2 pods (& topping it up with boiling water just isn't the same).
Same with filter coffee, it's 'too thin, not enough 'body'.
So I don't know what I'm looking for?? A fuller expresso shot I suppose?!
I'm ok to grind beans separately, but would prefer it was just built in.
I found this, but reading about it on another retailers site, it seems to just 'make coffee' like an American I think, not sure and an Americanism isn't what I'm after.
heeeeeellllp!! Please 😊

@CaffineAddict thank you for the link. 😊I’ve just bought one of those as my travel mug filter coffee machine is fading, I think.
i don’t have any suggestions for you, unfortunately, but good luck with your search.
