Anyhow, enough digression, I just wanted to give a reference point to the review for anybody who is looking at this machine from a pod system.
This machine makes lovely coffee drinks at the press of a button. And if you can’t see the button for the coffee that you like to drink, you can make your own recipe up, whatever strength, amount of coffee / milk or foam and even control the temperature.
I like flat white - 50/50 espresso and hot milk. There’s no button for that coffee, so I make a recipe up, use the preset memory and I’m away.
If you want a double size drink or to make 2 drinks at the same time, just press the x2 button and job done.
The major difference between this and the nespresso machines is the amount of cleaning required. I used to put all the nespresso milk prep gear in the dishwasher, but with this machine there’s a dedicated milk cleaning solution that will cost about a £1 / week (£5 / 5 x weekly cycles) and then there’s anti calc fluid (same as other machines) and then some detergent tablets that the machine chomps to clean the mechanism etc, so be prepared for these costs of the consumables.
I bought this machine on offer for £450 and it was a choice between this and the sage barista machine for £500 and I’m glad I went for this one. I’m sure there would be plenty of maintenance and cleaning involved with that one too, along with a steep learning curve to making great coffee, which unfortunately as I live in a busy real world don’t have time to partake in. I love coffee and I want to choose my own rare beans etc, but I also want an easy life, so bean to cup is the way forwards.
Add this machine to your wish list and keep an eye on the price as it fluctuates dramatically and buy it when it seems like value.
I hope this review has been helpful.
I've had it for a couple of months now and I am very pleased so far, I like the way the machine operates and you can fine tune the coffee and milk delivery to what each individual requires with amount of coffee, milk and froth and a memory for setting up standard drinks. As has already been mentioned by another reviewer the water tray is smaller in capacity than the Delonghi, but is not such a problem because if you don't empty it regularly it begins to smell. The milk system is much better and less of a fiddle than the Delonghi to keep clean and has a higher temperature also.
Overall I am very satisfied so far, I'll see how long it lasts before the problems set in, hopefully not.
Background: happily drank instant coffee for years and enjoyed visits to Starbucks and Costa Coffee for treats. Decided to enter the world of having nice coffee at home and purchased a bean to cup machine from a reputable brand that entered the market a couple of years ago. Alas, great coffee but it kept breaking down. I received a refund and held back from buying another. Then this machine appeared in Amazon Prime day and I decided to try again.
This machine is a pleasure to use. It makes espresso, long black coffee, cappuccino and latté. Key to me is how it handles the milk based drinks, which is fully automatic and with an easy clean system that works well.
Things I am especially pleased about:
- great tasting coffee
- it works without fail
- fast start from cold
- really easy to adjust to your taste
- maintenance is a breeze and it guides you all the way
A really nice touch is that there is a roller under the back of the machine. This means you can slide the machine under a worktop cupboard. When you want to refill the water tank at the side, or add more coffee beans at the top, or clean the brewing unit on the other side, you simply lift the front a little and it rolls forward. Genius.
I find the frequency of filling the water tank and emptying the drip tray is just right and never a chore or disappointment. It helps reduce drip tray emptying if you place a cup under the nozzles at the front when rinsing on startup or doing easy cleaning. If you have latte or cappuccino, the machine suggests easy cleaning when you've finished your run. It then rinses the milk unit and cleverly flushes steam through the milk inlet pipe.
I'm really happy with this machine. It would be nice if it did flat white as well but that would mean spending even more money and I would never have made the purchase.
