Antique Coffee Machines at Coffee Weekend

In my last post I told you about the Jura booth at the “coffee weekend” show I attended. This time I want to share some photos and impressions about a beautiful showcase of antique and original looking coffee machines by Elektra, La Cimbali, and more. I only took photos of some but you don’t see these every day so enjoy.

Elektra Belle Epoque (1997)

This is just an old world styled espresso machine. Selling for around 11,000 GBP, the Belle Epoque is a machine in a class all of its own, where beauty, functionality and reliability merge together. The brightness of its metal, shaped to a design with the fascination of the past makes an immediate impact and provides a striking finishing touch for elegant, refined premises (excuse me if some of the text is from the website, it just sounds exactly like what I was thinking).

Caffitaly Capsules – Where to Buy

Hey all !

You probably know what you need to know about the Caffitaly capsule system machines. And if you live in the UK, you also know that buying the capsules may be a bit more difficult than getting Nespresso capsules, for the Nespresso system, for example. Caffitaly opened its capsule system so that different manufacturers can prepare capsules with their coffee brand, so you can find coffee by Caffe Cagliari, Caffe Chicco Doro, Crem Caffe, Ecaffe and even more in different countries. So here are some good news for all you Caffitaly capsule machines owners. Caffe Cagliari just added 4 new blends to its capsule range, and you can find all of them online!

Nespresso Capsules – Where to Buy

If you recently bought a Nespresso capsule system machine, or looking to buy one, you will need a supply of capsules from day 1 if you want to use the machine. Nespresso has great online service. All you have to do is register online and you can start ordering capsules online. It usually takes 2 days to arrive.

Nespresso Capsules – Online

Nespresso Capsules – Stores

I am not certain about this, but I did read online that you can get the capsules at Selfridges & Co and at John Lewis. You can check out this store locator to find the closest Nespresso store to your home.

Nespresso Capsules – Prices

Between 0.45 GBP and 0.49 GBP per capsule. Capsules are usually ordered in multiples of 50 for packing reasons.

Nespresso Capsules Stands

You don’t want to have your Nespresso capsules thrown around the machine or packed in their carton box. Treat yourself to a stylish Nespresso capsules holder.

A recent comment from one of our readers states that there’s a £4.95 postage charge on a purchase of Nespresso coffee capsules through the company website. So for an order of 50 capsules, you would pay 49 pence X 50 capsules plus £4.95 postage charge. This equals £29.45, which makes the nominal price per cup of coffee 58.9 pence. Thanks for that feedback Alan!
