I’m not the biggest fan of coffee in the world or tea for that matter, but never turn down a cup if you’re going out or visiting friends etc, this machine doesn’t have any real technology, but it there’s an app to help you with things and it has buttons that light up and so on but that’s a new experience for a non coffee maestro coffee is a huge industry here and around the world and we let’s pay dearly at costa and starbucks which sport a loyalty card the people in the club proudly serve at the tills and think they’re part of something elite that’s just my view of the coffee world observing and i have my own name for those people i can’t repeat here but i get it don’t get me wrong each to their own i prefer a can of coke or a bottle of water and im sure there are names for my fellows. I like cappuccino more and understand that taste matters and having only used the traditional method at home mainly for tea and coffee as I don’t frequent cafes every day of my life I can see the difference in a machine like this compared to the old fashioned way and that’s huge..
The smell, taste and experience changes and in fact I can now drink more coffee and God bless turns into what I can’t call here. This is my first coffee machine to review and I have to say, other tech friends here and abroad have done the same and I have several times turned down the offer to review one and I am glad I did so far. I’m not a coffee expert or overnight for what some seem to be.
A representative for Sage said: ‘The kitchen remains at the heart of every home, where budding master chefs can experiment in the comfort of their own space, and with Sage, the quality results of restaurants using our products show no signs of slowing down. From pizza to coffee,
there are so many opportunities to enjoy the process and now more than ever as we spend more time at home. With that, we are excited to open the Sage family to launch the Bambino® as the perfect espresso machine to step into and explore the full aromatic complexity of Third Wave coffee at home.
As mentioned I normally get the spoon and pot thing but I’ve always wondered what difference these machines make, now when I say machines I mean gas station ones not the ones you see in the likes of bewleys and so on i know of other brands that have machines and run good commercials on tv and make it tempting even down to the pods you get and i never bothered to try them some friends have them most haven’t and have never tried this method and now it got me interested the machine is well built looks more expensive than it should be and easy to clean which is important and she also looks great on the kitchen press, much to the surprise of some friends when they walked in and saw her they asked me if I was ok which was funny but I explain what is happening and they understand, not only does it s got curious too and tasted and everything was good. So overall for me testing this machine and the first coffee machine remember everything has been good.
Like everything I review I give my opinion our ears differ this is something that is often brought up by attention seekers and being a fair point it is debatable when you test more that much and you can tell the good sound from the bad but when it comes down to tasting again it will differ, in general, coffee for me has never been an item in my basket you might say, but having drunk some old fashioned tea and coffee and now using this machine there is a difference and a big one to that so you can get whatever you want out of it and that’s just my humble opinion.
