I have been trying for many years to find a coffee machine which makes HOT coffee. I have lost count of the number of machines which I have bought and discarded due to the coffee being luke warm. This machine is brilliant and so easy to use. I put it on every morning to make two cups for myself before getting on with my day and the coffee is ready in about 2-3 minutes and is piping hot even though I use cold milk straight from the fridge to put in it. I would recommend this machine to anyone who loves good fresh hot coffee.
