One button control
Generally tastes ok
This dispenses a lot of water in the tray!
No idea what the 3 coffee bean types are for, seems to make no difference
The milk frother is useless
The thing needs cleaning so often it's unreal.
I don't know how long i'll keep this before I end up chucking it on Amazon and trying another one but i'll give it another couple of months at least
We have owned several of the all in one coffee machines which use coffee pods and a few of the other ones that require a coffee grinder. This machine trumps them all by a country mile!
We decided to buy the solo with milk steamer, as opposed to just the espresso option. Choices then of lattes, cappuccino, etc.
We love it, on average we drink about 2/3 cups per day and so this machine is not used to its limits.
I will be honest though and say, its a bit of a labour of love if you follow the instructions and on screen cleaning programme. It needs descaling at least every 3 months and its recommend you run a monthly cleaning program. Follow the instructions (which obviously is difficult for us blokes) as its laid out in there step by step. But kudos to the machine, the symbols tell you whats needed, and then follow the step by step instructions.
Don't bother with the branded descaling tablets and fluids nor do i bother with the water filter. I use kilrock descaler.
For me its a great cup of coffee, latte, cappuccino, espresso, flat white what ever you want. Yes its expensive and a little fiddly with the cleaning, descaling and emptying of the unit, but, its brilliant and i would recommend it.
I use Levazza coffee beans, the crema ones, give them a go, they are awesome. (I'm not being paid to advertise, but trying).
So marked down for having a EU plug and me waiting 15 minutes on the Melitta help line before I found the adapter.
All of these have their strengths and weaknesses -Nespresso and Tassimo it is the cost of the posd which is a major drawback, and the others it is the mess and cleaning.
I have wanted a good quality bean to cup machine for some time, but have not been able to justify the cost, so when the Melitta was featured as deal of the day I took the plunge and bought it, and how glad I am!
Firstly, it produces fantastic coffee. The strength can be adjusted from 1 - mild, to 3 -strong, and the volume can be varied from a small espresso up to a large cup.
As a bean to cup machine, there is no faffing about tamping, measuring, etc.. You just press a button and off you go.
Cleaning is just a matter oe emptying the ďrip tray each day which is a very quick and easy job, and giving the brewing unit a periodic clean which again is not a difficult process.
Unless anything goes wrong, this is the last coffee machine I will buy - I love it.
3 X Bean Strength
Milk Faoming/heating arm
Different cup sizes from espresso to full cup
This machines likes to tell you when something needs doing:
Filling the water tank
Empty the grounds / overflow drawer
Descaling the machine (approx every 4 months)
Decalc the machine (approx every 200 cups/ 3months)
I would recommend buying the correct cleaning solutions/tablets for the last two options. I picked them up on the marketplace at a reasonable price.
The main problem with this machine is the same as most of machines of this size, the milk steamer doesn't have any guts! By the time 200ml of milk is heated to 70 degrees it has become 300ml with the amount of condensate water added, sometimes I need to turn off the steam jet half way through, wait until the thing has caught itself up and steam again. Let's be clear 200ml of milk isn't much!
In summary worth the £240 deal price, probably not worth the standard Amazon price and certainly NOT worth the RRP (In my opinion)
