Having had two Gaggia Brera's die in 3 months in my jump from a 5 year affair with Nespresso,i decided to spend a bit extra. Admittedly this is a lot extra, i did consider the Melitta machines bit could find no reviews. A friend said buy Miele you will never look back.
It is massively superior to the Gaggia. The build quality, the operation, the size of the water and bean reservoir and drip tray, just well thought out and designed - the opposite of the Gaggia.
Then there is the coffee. It is just awesome. It is very adjustable to your taste. The ease of producing a double espresso or a tall drip type coffee really is the press of a button. Even the milk is completely programable to personal taste, quantity, temperature and consistency.
The coffee is the top priority and this has hot the mark where others failed. Now we need to see if it is worth the grand it cost. That will be determined by longevity and consistency of performance
