This free report will show you five established and reliable bean to cup machines , performing as owners expect. These unbiased recommendations are based solely on combined owner reviews from different shops.

Our ratings-driven look at the wider market often highlights unexpected models for sale. It can also steer you away from a 'bestseller' - if ratings are inconsistent at the different shops.


How does it work?

We begin by building a list of bean to cup machines with more than 50 ratings at Amazon UK, Argos, John Lewis and Tesco. This jumps straight to the established products, and this minimum number of ratings reveals how they've actually performed, according to many owners.

Any bean to cup machines with less than 4 stars are removed. We now have a list of the higher rated models, with a credible amount of opinion.

We use the same criteria for all our consumer reports: each product must have over 50 reviews and more than 4 stars. After sorting the list by ratings, we compile a Top 5.
