Lavazza Fantasia – Coffee Makers : Excellent coffee at home

Go it for my husband and he loves it. Easy to use and makes a lovely latè, not all supermarkets sell the pods though :(.

It’s ok if you want to wake everyone up in your house in the morning. Coffee is good quality but not much variety with the flavour of the capsules.

This machine is so good knocks spots off nespresso.

The coffee is excellent and i like the varities available.

We liked how easy it is to assemble , use and wash. Nothing tricky everything fits easily in to place. There are so many different pods to choose from, i can’t wait to try them all.

Fantastic, miles better than my old lavazza aeg leaking bag of tripe. Works a treat, not to noisy. In fact, by the time the waste pod thing is full, it’s about half way up the water trap. No need to sit this one on a nappy to catch its accidents.

I had some issues with the first three of these that were supplied (each one leaked. ) had no trouble with customer service and each one was replaced without any fuss. The fourth one worked fine (no leaks) and is still going strong.

One of the best things i ever bought. The milk frother produces perfect foamy milk, which is thicker and much nicer that coffee that you would pay £4 a cup for in a coffee shop. The individual coffee pods are cheaper than all the other coffee machines, and because you use normal milk, its cheaper and you dont have to put up with the disgusting stuff they put in other machines milk pods.My favourite coffee pods are lavazza a modo mio espresso crema e gusto coffee capsules, and if you buy them in bulk from amazon you are looking at 19p for a coffee better than what you would pay £4 for at somewhere like starbucks.

The plus button allows for hotter temperature coffee. Some of the plastic fittings feel of a poor standard.

We just love the authentic coffee produced by lavazza and so we upgraded our old machine for the fantasia. It is so easy to use, looks great and the coffee tastes amazing. They have really thought about the design and improved it ten fold, cleaning is so easy. Having had a nespresso the coffee really doesn’t compare, lavazza is so much more rounded and tasty.

Much, much better taste than nespresso. The machine is not pretty but delivers good coffee at a reasoanble price.

Great price great coffee maker.

I have been resisting buying a pod coffee machine for ages and didn’t want the hassle of a bean to cup model. I finally bought one after tasting a coffee made by a similar competitors machine at a friends house. The lavazza fantasia plus makes even better coffee. I have been truly impressed by both the quality of the lavazza coffee and the fantastic range of coffee e. Cappuccino, flat white etc that you can make with the milk frother attachment. Just like a good cafe, better than most and at a fraction of the price. The machine is simple to use and clean and also has a temperature setting which is great if you like hot coffee (which i do). Only complaint i have is how difficult i find it to keep my coffee consumption down to one or 2 a day.

Very happy, looks even better than in the pictures.

Once you have worked out how to use this it produces better coffee than i have had in cafes and restaurants. Great choice of 9 different lavazza blends and can choose from espresso, cappuccino or lattes. Froths and heats up the milk excellently. Just make sure that the water reservoir is pushed down into its socket before pressing the start button. Excellent machine and great value for money, coffee comes in at about 17p a cup.

I can make my mochas easily now without using a separate frother. The machine is easy to operate. Would recommend purchase of the water filters which are inserted into the bottom of the water tank. Information is included in the excellent instruction manual.

Lavazza Fantasia – Coffee Makers (Freestanding, Semi-auto, Espresso Machine, Lavazza A Modo Mio, Coffee Capsule, Black)

Had a nespresso machine and got sick of it and after reading reviews, can only give it 5 stars.

Excellent product and excellent yield. Prompt and careful delivery.

I love the coffee from this machine. It’s easy to use, and the flavour of the lavazza coffees is wonderful. I love it so much i bought a smaller compact version for our motorhome. Pretentious i know, but it’s so much nicer than high street coffee and much cheaper in the long run.

Was given to us for christmas and we just love it, makes wonderful coffee couldn’t wish for better.

We’ve had this machine for a while and, bottom line, it is excellent. The addition of the milk steamer is really useful. Love the capsules, always giving great coffee.

Very straightforward and easy to use. Great coffee fast when you’re in a hurry.

Machine arrived very quickly. I am very happy with my choice. Cold milk foam is very original function and very welcome in hot summer days. Broad spectrum of coffee pods. Bigest advantages is that it prepares milk foam, but it does not require any exhausting cleaning copared to other machines. Also, it prepares very nice foam from alpro milk alternatives.

This is one of the best coffee machines made by aeg for lavazza. I have 2 of these one at home and the other in the office and the machines are excellent and the coffee they make is fantastic.

Much improved on earlier model with larger water capacity and much quieter and simpler operation.

Makes perfect coffee, just the way you like it, full of featuresmy wife and i bought the fantasia plus ‘a modo mio’ cofee machine online from the lavazza website. It arrived very quickly and was well packed. Firstly the machine consistently makes delicious perfect coffee. I have tried nespresso, tassimo and dolce gusto machines and though they all make a reasonable acceptable coffee none of them compare to the aeg lavazza fantasia plus which has proved to be vastly superior in taste, operation and features. I have not tasted coffee this good outside of italy. Lavazza do a huge range of blends which should suit every taste, i have tried them all and have not found one which i didnt like though i have settled on a few personal favourites. The machine is very easy to setup and is quick and simple to use with touch controls. You can simply select the default settings or use the many features to tailor your drink just how you want. Ristretto, espresso, lungo, americano, cappuccino, latte, flat white, macchiato, mocha and many more are all possible, you can also make hot chocolate and even cold drinks like milkshakes and iced coffee.

Really pleased with this coffee maker, we bought another more expensive brand previously and ending up sending it back. Coffee is very good, hot and frothy milk is just right after a bit of time searching were very happy.

Bought this after looking at lots of options. It works really well and makes good coffee and the price of the machine is very good. Collects a number of used pods before it needs emptying which makes it quicker. The only drawback which is common to most machines of this type is that you cant do milk and coffee at the same time. If wish i had bought the same make coffee only and a separate milk frother although this is much more expensive.

Having read many reviews for a variety of coffee pod machines nes this final choice of mine does not disappoint. Fabulous coffee ( passionale is my favourite), easy to clean and the froth is superb. The secret to a great milky foam is to ensure the whisk prong is not jammed too tight into the lid. It feels a bit floppy when in the correct position but this set up is what is required for perfect cappuccinos. I absolutely love my machine.

First one had to go back as it started to leak from the bottom after two weeks (turns out to be a common problem). Had replacement for a month and so far so good. Will update if any problems. Lavazza make lovely coffee’s.

This mio capsule machine has been working very well. It heavy enough that it does not move around on the worktop when you close the capsule pressure unit or when you yank off the milk cup. The touch sensitive buttons work extremely well (even when there is a splash of water on the surface)the milk cup has markings on for how much should be put in for the three different types of milked coffees. The milk cup is meant to be filled for each individual mio coffee that you make – it is not a milk carafe that some machines have where it dispenses only the right amount each time and each filling will do several cups. And if you go above the highest marking, then the milk will spill out during the frothing phase. I’ve measured the temperature of the milk that’s produced at around 55°c (see photo with the ir thermometer). The cup trays i still find a little awkward to take off. There is a tab that you squeeze to unlock the cup tray but this doesn’t work cleanly on mine and i end up struggling with it a bit to get the tray off when its time to empty it. The milk cup slides in but then needs a bit of force to push it all the way home. Several times i’ve thought that something was wrong with the machine until i tried adjusting the milk cup again.

Great coffee machine but mine failed within a year easy to get replaced from aeg so on second machine but totally love the coffee best coffee out of any machine.

We really love this machine. Absolutely beautiful coffee. To be honest the coffee is even better than coffee shop. Great that you can use your own milk as i use lacto free, my wife uses regular skimmed, my mother likes semi. Another bonus is that all the bits you use can go in the dishwasher.
