What makes a good coffee machine?
The Wega Mininova is available to you at $2900. Now, we know what you’re thinking – “crikey that’s a lot of money for a coffee machine!” But there are crucial reasons for this small investment.
The Wega Mininova is a purchase made for a lifetime. It’s hard-wearing interior, sophisticated exterior and industry level offerings is unmatchable. Plus, we have an expert team available to you for regular maintenance and servicing. It’s a ripper deal.
We’ve taken a look at other coffee machines for sale to compare with the Mininova and, to be frank, no other gadget meets the same quality.
For example, the Breville Oracle (price: $2300) appears to have the general consensus “does the job, but far from perfect.” Although Breville makes some great products we hear time and time again from customers the issues they experience. The lifespan of Brevilles/De Longhis/Sunbeams are cut short, and that’s not what you want to wake up to in the morning.
Check out what this senior member of Coffee Snobs has to say,
“The Mini Nova Classic is three years old this month and still looks like the day I bought it from Leaf Bean Machine here in Perth (Bibra Lake)… It is a tough little machine and all the components are available and the servicing from LBM (twice) has been great.”
How to make delicious coffee at home
You’ve got the new coffee machine now, it’s time to learn how to use it!
Once you’ve purchased your new Wega, we’re here for you every step of the way.
We offer barista courses so you can get the best out of your new machine. These courses are run by our professional barista teacher Summah. After a class with Summah, you will walk out feeling confident in using your machine and excited to prove your new skills. Alternatively, we have a great selection of free resources available from our Youtube or, our blog. From learning how to dial in your machine, understanding the espresso recipe or, how to pour perfect milk – we’ve got you covered.
Complete the look: coffee grinders
Now how about a grinder to go with this magnificent machine?
Unfortunately, people often spend a lot of money on a fancy machine but then skimp on the grinder. The machine and the grinder are equally important. If you want delicious coffee you are going to need a grinder that cuts the coffee beans into uniform size pieces, this allows for a much more even extraction. Using a conical burr grinder such as our new range of Baratza grinders will do just that.
Hot tip: Grinding your coffee fresh is one of the best things you can do to improve your brew. See our blog below for some tips on making coffee at home
