Review of a product we bought online, 6 months ago.
Back 6 month ago, Our old Coffee maker at the office, dropped the ball on us; the team then grabbed the opportunity to improve the quality of their coffee corner as they say here. We finally gave the machine to our local church knowing there are many Handymen that probably would be able to give a second life to this almost piece of art. (smile)
Anyway we needed a new one
Our old Coffee-Maker
After long discussions, the majority voted to buy a Nespresso Coffee-Maker, but which one to buy was the principal question. As you probably know if you are a coffee lover, there are a plethora of models with so many features, so it is a hard task, just to determine which machine best suit each and everyone request. One thing is sure, there are a number of options in the market to efficiently brew coffee and one leading name is Nespresso. As usual, we had to compromise and we came up with a fair decision knowing that it was representing a serious investment for a simple coffee-maker. To be honest I love coffee but I never thought that people were ready to invest that much of money for a coffee-maker I need to mention also that no one here had any “Barista qualifications”. The replacement of our old one was a must, to keep each and everyone happy.
Intensive research with a happy ending
The search started and we came up with one specific listing on eBay.ca with the following feature: (Nespresso Evoluo Deluxe Silver Espresso & Coffee Machine Refurbished (As new Nespresso Certified) Item Condition: Manufacturer Refurbished. Warranty: 1-year Nespresso warranty from date of purchase). There was only 1 little black dot that was still running into my mind. This little black dot was related to the fact that it was specified to be a refurbished machine; it is definitely not in our usual habits to buy refurbished things.
I then pushed my curiosity further and started searching on the internet to verify if my fear was justified or not. Was it an obsolete model? Was it in good Condition? If we buy it will it look like brand new or like a second-hand machine? Will we have any problem buying the pods?
The result of my research then told me the following: 14 reviews on eBay.ca all very positives. 4 reviews on Amazon. ca. All positives.
The reasons for my decision
What really helped me to make the final decision is the fact that eBay has already sold at that time more than 300 machines and as of today(565 sold). So the machine was ordered and as promised ( delivery within 5 days) it was delivered at our door 3 days later. Finally, 6 months or so later I can say that my fear was really not justified. We all love our coffee with this heaven machine and lately, I must say that we discovered that the majority of us could become with a little more time some serious Home-Barista specialists.
