^What kind of machine?

You can get a Sage Barista Express refurbed for that much, could be worth a go and see what condition it is when it turns up. The reviews seem good. Theres loads of replacement parts for them so I would be happy going for it refurbed, I love mine!

Algerian Coffee Store in Soho.. very good selection of single origin beans as well as their own mixes.. You can even get Blue Mountain, Kona or Skybury if you want to splash out. Staff are knowledgable and friendly too

If you drink filter coffee, imo these roast way too dark…

Been buying from Passion Fruit for a while, she used to roast on prem in her cafe near where I live, but had to upscale due to success/expansion https://passionfruitcoffee.co.uk
