Reviewed

Sage describes its Bambino Plus SES500BSS ground coffee machine as 'small on size and big on taste'. It's a smart compact coffee maker with a brushed steel finish and simple controls, including a handy automatic steam wand for fuss-free milk frothing. It's not cheap, but it could be worth it if it makes barista-grade coffees at home. Our full review reveals all, so read on to find out how it fared in our tough tests.
