This is really easy to set up, you do not have to have a degree in mechanics to do it. The instructions a clear but the multi language manual refers to figures inside the manual cover so flipping between the words and the diagrams need to be understood. A download single language manual is available from Melitta web site.
Initially I was very unhappy with the coffee results, the coffee taste was er... not my cup of tea. This was due to the coffee beans that I ordered at the same time as the machine being the Lavazza Qualita Rossa Coffee Beans. These beans may be fine for use in other machines and systems but for my taste in this machine the result was far from good, they were thrown away after experimenting with different coffee strengths to no avail. Maybe by changing the coffee grinder settings and heat something may have improved but I didn't investigate. Using the Espresso beans from the same company Lavazza totally transformed the taste. Great coffee, espresso and long coffee was a welcome experience to prove to me the money was well spent on this machine. When used with the milk frother for a latte or cappuccino the results were fantastic. Better than the high street in my experience. 13cm Latte glasses will fit under the variable height dispensing nozzles. Like most machines anything taller will require decanting the coffee after the brew.
This is a very simple and easy machine to use. Fill the bean hopper (you can use two different types of bean and flip a leaver to select which one to use) switch on, decide the amount of coffee, and press a button for either one cup or two. Brilliance in simplicity, no nagging inane text information it just gets the job done, and does it well.Read more ›
The first two were refurbished De'Longhi ESAM04.350.S machines which both suffered from the same fault and were ultimately refunded.
The third was a brand new Severin S2+ which failed to heat the water if the custom temp was set to 'high', but worked correctly if set to 'regular or 'very high'. This was also refunded.
Machine number four was the first order of this Melitta which unfortunately arrived with the bean hopper cracked and broken, but Amazon promptly exchanged the machine, bringing our machine count up to five.
Onward then, to the merits of Melitta.
First impressions are good - the machine is well presented and of average size for a machine of this type. Unlike it's De'Longhi and Severin predecessors, the Melitta has no automatic milk system and no computerised controls or text display (only symbols). This makes the machine refreshingly simple and straight forward to operate.
There is no need to program water volumes to accomodate specific cup sizes, as the rotary knob allows for continuous variation between 30ml and 220ml. A coffee strength button selects between four levels, and there are separate buttons to start dispensing either one or two cups of coffee via the twin spouts.
The milk frothing attachment is a joy to use. Simply place a cup containing some milk to the side of the machine, then swing the frothing 'whisk' forward from the side of the machine and lower it into the cup - no need to hold the cup. Pressing the steam button enables the steam knob - the operation of which starts up the whisk and pumps steam through at the same time, enabling you to control exactly how much to heat your milk.Read more ›
My only negative comment would be that the drip tray seems to collect a lot of water - need to empty it every 8 cups or so.
Update - just had to run a cleaning cycle - really easy. A tip.. buy the cleaning tabs from amazon.de not amazon.co.uk. They are half the price - and in my case, I bought from the same supplier as the UK site, but I bought 40 tabs (10 packs) for about £20 instead of £4 for 4 (1 pack). Daft situtation. I even had to pay 9 for international postage and it's still that much cheaper...
I probably wouldn't have bought it but for the Black Friday price (£350). Even then, a lot of money... but when I looked back at what we had paid for our Delonghi EAM3200 back in 2008 (£299), perhaps it wasn't so much after-all (indeed, that Delonghi is still on Amazon at nearly £400).
We enjoyed the Delonghi, but this is different class in all honesty. The crema is thicker, the coffee is (much) hotter & tastier, the milk whisk works so well, and the general finish of the machine is real quality (IMO).
I would have preferred a less passive cup warmer (though as I said, the coffee comes out much hotter anyway) - and initially, I thought we had an internal leak, though that proved not to be case (see below), because apparently the machine cleans itself as it goes.
We were so worried by this "leak", that we rang the UK helpline (it was an 0800 number, but I can't find it - will update when found)... it went through to Germany anyway, and I asked them why there was water in the drip tray inside the machine, and the brewer unit appeared wet. They informed me that the machine is designed to self-clean, and that the internals are rinsed after every cup made - and that after approximately 8 cups, the drip tray would need emptying.
I was relieved at that - but it does mean that the water tank doesn't last as long, and that you have to keep an eye on the drip tray. It would also have been nice if this "feature" had been mentioned in the manual.Read more ›
