Aldi left shoppers speechless after seeing a coffee machine at a really good price.
Their latest SpecialBuy item has been called a “dream” by many, with people rushing to get their hands on them before they sell out.
The budget chain’s SpecialBuys – which take place every Thursday and Sunday – often prove popular and it’s usually a case of “you doze off, you lose” with these products.

But one item people have been keeping their eyes peeled for is Aldi’s DeLonghi Infinissima coffee machine – and good news, it’s cheaper than Currys.
Aldi’s machine costs just £39.99 and is said to offer coffee lovers “an exceptional coffee experience in the comfort of your own home”.
This compares to Currys version – De’Longhi Infinissim’s Dolce Gusto – which costs almost double at £65.99.

Reviewing the item, one said: “Love this machine – hated the instruction booklet – but once I got past that and played around with it a bit the machine, I found out what the pieces were for, it’s fantastic and I love it!
“The price is great as previously I couldn’t find a pod coffee machine for under £70. I love that you can also make iced coffee with it, and I like that Aldi pods are compatible and that I can also make a pot of noodles with it! it’s easy to disassemble to clean and reassemble. it’s very simple to use. FYI, Aldi pods do not taste the same as Dulce Gusto !”
Another added: ‘We bought this as a spare, we already have the same type and would hate to be without it.
A third said: “Bought for my sisters for Christmas, she absolutely loves it. No complaints, she seems over the moon with it. And as a bonus, you have to make supermarket brand coffee to save a lot of money! done so all round a win-win.
