The Lavazza Idola coffee machine is a steal right now

Perking up just got priced down

The Lavazza A Modo Mio Idola coffee machine is an absolute steal right now on Amazon. It usually retails at around the £111 mark, but it’s been slashed to a mere £85 – its lowest price to date. In our full length Lavazza Idola review, we gave it a whopping five stars, lauding its Italian flair, minimal noise emission and elegant, light-touch controls.

The compact pod machine, which boasts a sleek, minimalistic black design that would be at home in anyone’s kitchen, makes coffees of all varieties. Whether you’re after a punchy ristretto, an espresso lungo or a longer coffee to warm your mitts on during these winter months, the Idola offers a full suite of coffees in the comfort of your own home. There’s a ‘free dose beverage’ option too, so you can tailor your drink size to fit your favourite mug.

The real clincher for this zippy machine is its noise levels – or lack thereof. The Lavazza Idola is the quietest coffee maker of its kind, emitting next to no noise. Perfect for those households with different starts – enjoy your pre-gym coffee at 6am absolutely guilt free. Plus, from the touch of a button your drink will take a mere 35 seconds to prepare.

The machine works with Lavazza A Modo Mio capsules only, so you’ll want to use up your Nespresso backlog first if you’re thinking of jumping ship. Specs-wise, the water chamber at the rear of the machine has a sizeable 1 litre capacity and the machine weighs 4kg in total, although it’s unlikely you’ll be lugging this from place to place. Its dimensions are 42.3 x 18.8 x 35.5cm – compact enough to tuck away nicely on a kitchen counter. Meanwhile its exhausted caps drawer holds 10 used capsules, distinguishing it from smaller, less roomy models (which can hold around 5)and saving caffeine fiends the back-and-forth to the bin.

What the Lavazza Idola won’t do is concoct milk-based drinks for you. Milk will need to be added and, if desired, heated manually. But with the wealth of speciality milk frothers on the market, this feels more like an opportunity than an omission.

All in all? A compact, intuitive and stylish machine, now available for the bargain price of £85. Nothing to venti about here.
