Siemens TK58001GB Surpresso Compact Beans to cup coffee machine Dolphin grey
I received this machine a few days ago and so far I've been very impressed by the results. I have tried it with ground coffee to begin with and the taste was clearly better than my old KRUPS XP4000 delivered. However, if you have a machine like this you would almost certainly not use ground coffee as the results when using good quality coffee beans are impressively better.
But lets take it one aspect at a time.
Easy of use. I would say it's relatively easy to use once you set it up. The manual is not brilliant but good enough. Like all machines it takes a few goes to get your head around it but once you do, that's it. Very simple! Press a button to get your creamy espresso and then put your cup under the amazingly designed milk nozzle to get your perfect froth every time.
When you have finished, the machine will rinse itself. You just need to take the used ground coffee and the water from the tray and depose of it.
Speed. It's quick. You turn it on in the morning and by the time you fill the water tank, get the milk out of the fridge and take your cup from the cupboard the machine is ready for use. If you are making a few coffees for your guests just make sure your water tank and milk jug are full and carry on. No need to do anything between cups.
Design. Excellent! Very well thought out. The minute you open the box you can see German design written all over it. It looks like it's built to last. But this feature can only be tested in time. Perhaps I'll review it again in a year.
It really does what it says on the box. It's automatic, quick, consistent with both coffee quality and frothy milk. I have no negative comments at the moment. Hopefully this will remain the case.
