Adorable and functions well,
This review is from: AEG A Modo Mio Favola Lavazza Espresso Coffee Machine, 0.9 Litre, 1300 Watt, Love Red/ Ice White (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
OK, first things first: this machine is super-cute. It doesn't look terribly expensive and it's a little plasticky, but it's bright, cheerful, compact and chunky, and the worktop footprint isn't too large. It looks great in a modern kitchen and it adds a nice spot of colour.
The machine is fairly easy to use: add water and add a capsule, and that's it. I do think that the water reservoir being placed at the back of the machine is a bit awkward, as you're constantly reaching over the machine and it can be a bit tricky depending on where you place the machine. You also need to watch the machine as it dispenses the coffee, as it doesn't do different doses automatically, you need to manually stop the flow when your cup is full.
Cleaning the machine is simple too and doesn't need to be done too often. The used capsules don't need to be removed every time as they are stored inside the machine until the repsitory is full, at which point you can easily tip them out. The drip tray needs regular emptying but that's easy enough.
The coffee tastes good, and the Lavazza capsules have both light and heavy blends so everyone is catered to. A generous starting pack of 24 capsules is included with the machine, and in general the capsules are slightly cheaper to purchase than the Nespresso capsules, so that's something to keep in mind. They can be easily ordered online, or are available at some supermarkets.
There are a large amount of coffee machines available in this price range so it's definitely worth checking out different models, but if you're looking for something cute and cheerful that makes decent coffee from capsules then this will do the job.

Yes this and the other Lavazza A Modo Mio machines are very fine. I did not know coffee as a child but I got hooked when I went to Italy. Today I have very good coffee everywhere in Spain, Italy, in Germany. But in U.K. finding good coffee on the street is a hazard. I have two small coffees a day, of the type CORTADO commonly favoured in Spain - i.e. coffee in a small glassed topped with foam. The coffee I prefer is the A Modo Mio capsule type. Ecco dettto. One advantage of this simple machine is that it makes all types of coffee from espresso to latte.
