In the current catalog for $474 but I just jumped online and it's $402 online until 25th November, was getting one for Christmas anyway but we'll be buying it sooner now biggrin.gif

ETA - actually the price may not run until 25th November, that's the Aussie Farmers credit promotion that expires then. I think this price might be for the Super Saturday sale, as it is listed as $474 on the site, and when you click and open the link to it, the price shows as $402. Certainly the cheapest I have seen it anywhere!

Ahhh bummer...so this was yesterday only? Of course the 1 day I don't go on the computer! I've been looking around at these for a while now - choosing between the latissima or citiz...

Yep - checked today and they are back to $474 sad.gif I didn't put my order through as DH told me to as I had other xmas laybys due this week but now I am kicking myself!

I spent a lot of time figuring out which one to get also, in the end I decided on Latissima as it is fully automatic, and when we have a demonstration done in store we have seen the sales people overspill the milk in the citiz and make a mess 3 times now. I'm not sure how as they have never explained it well but I can see myself doing the same thing laugh.gif

Oh bugger you didn't get it either...my parents have a citiz and I've used it a few times and it seems good. But yep the automatic one seems great too.They had the citiz for $356 online earlier this week so I had decided to get that - but then went up really quick too so I missed out so now I'm unsure again.  Got to get it before the sale ends though and it's back to $519.

Ah thank you I had no idea about that offer, perfect! biggrin.gif

So after cashback it should cost me $374, plus HN are giving a $50 eftpos cash card with it too, I'm definitely buying mine this week now.

Becca, that seems like a lot to pay ($519) for a Citiz. They too are in the HN catalog for $416, with the cash back offer mentioned, that's only $356! And the $50 cash card comes with that also.

Although, if they are anything like my Harvey's they will have no knowledge of how the offer works and who is supposed to be giving the customers this $50  rolleyes.gif

It's a beautiful thing. I've had mine a year and it has made several coffees a day without missing a beat.

My tip.... if you just press the latte button the machine
spits out a huge amount of milk froth then pops a coffee shot in. Far too milky and frothy for me.

I do it the way they make the demo coffees at the nespresso shop... run a long black, then press the latte button to add desired amount of milk, press it again to stop before it tries to add more coffee. You get the lovely caramel coloured froth that way.

Oh yeah that was a typo - it was supposed to be $416. Yeah I saw the cash back offers today - $100 for latissimo and $60 for the other machines. What is the $50 cash card though Haven't heard of that one.

Ahh do you mean the Aussie Farmers Direct credit?

Love, love my Lattissima plus machine. I just make my coffee a long black and then top up with milk from the fridge - still super creamy on top. (official coffee talk right there) I ummed and ahhed over this indulgent purchase for well over a year and haven't regretted the purchase ever.

BIG bonus is the milk container can go in and out of the fridge as required - unlike a milk frother attachment which requires cleaning after each use.

My inlaws are the fussiest people on this earth and checked them all out and decided on the Latissima. I dont drink coffee but seems like a nice machine.

Thanks for the tip, I will definitely try this as I am not a huge fan of milky drinks - I've even considered giving up coffee before lol.

Nope, the Aussie Farmers Direct credit is when you buy online, the $50 eftpos card is the theme of the latest catalogue, which ends tomorrow anyway. I still haven't purchased one, hoping for a great special before Christmas, let me know how you go original.gif

We ended up going in yesterday and got the U. The Nespresso guy we spoke to (and who made hubby and I a coffee each) was great. He gave great info and advice. I said I was a bit torn between the U or the latissimo. He asked how many would be having coffee etc, and basically recommended the U for the 2 of us. I think it was well worth it (it was only $249, plus I got the $30 Aussie Farmers direct voucher, and the $60 cashback).  he explained cleaning etc of both the U and the latissimo. So at the end of the day I'm happy with my purchase!
I'm not sure what the $50 efptos card is though - didn't get that.
