Not certain that this will be of interest to anyone but just bought one of these for £1 to replace the original modo mio machine I have. Here’s a link to the machine,
I got this one for a pound, yes, £1. They are discounted generally at £89.00 to buy outright, from RRP of £129.00. Not bad and after reading loads of negative reviews of this being a scam, went and ordered it direct from Lavazza (not one to run with the herd )
The ‘catch’ being that you sign up to a subscription order for coffee pod purchases.
So, I buy the correct pods from Asda, or MrsB does! £4.40 normally for a box of 16, only 3 choices available (sometimes only two, sometimes none in stock) Subscription is 10 boxes every 2/4/6 or 8 weeks x 7 free deliveries then you’re out or you can continue with it. Either way, the machine is yours to keep We buy the stuff at £4.40, subscription price £4.40 but you spend £44.00 in one go per delivery. We elected for every 8 weeks which means two to three cups a day which is the norm anyway in our household. Plus, choice of all the different pods that are available to mix your order each time. 7 different pods available to select from. We’ve previously purchased like this but generally not in a mixed selection, usually all one type.
You can get the pods on Amazon and some other online sites slightly cheaper but you don’t get the machine with them. I have no affinity with Lavazza other than enjoying their products myself but thought it maybe of use to some (or not).
It’s really interesting ( due to lockdown) that we’ve altered the way we buy some things in our household now.
The original machine, still working perfectly, so ran a descaling solution through it, gave it a thorough clean and polish then boxed it up along with the original manual, guide, warranty card and supplied accessories. Added the Lavazza pod storage cup that came as a free gift for ordering along with an included 9 pod selection plus a 16 pod box. Daughter and her partner are now enjoying nice coffee’s too!
I also have a deLonghi pressure machine and an electric grinder for that bean to cup experience but find the Lavazza machines very convenient TBH.
