Simple and perfect coffee everytime
6 October 2013
At 3 times the price we originally intended to pay, there was a certain trepidation in going for this. However, since we have 4 cups of coffee each, 7 days a week, we figured it would be well used. Was it worth it? The simple answer is YES. Once set up it's as quick to make 'proper' coffee as it is to make instant. The machine can be programmed to make whatever strength of coffee you require and top it off with as much frothy milk as you need. The coffee is hot and (after a little experimenting) perfect for our tastes. Cleaning is a doddle being almost entirely automated. Descaling is equally easy as you are guided by the menu (took 20 minutes with hardly any intervention). My one complaint is that I had to descale it after 2 weeks of use. It might be the hardness of the water here in Spain or it may be a one off but I am hoping that I will not need to descale every 2 weeks or I would be a little less pleased considering the cost of descaler.
The product itself came well packed (with a free pack of descaler) and the build quality is good. Overall I am well pleased and would recommend it
So to sum up:
Pro's: VERY easy to use, quick to produce the goods, decent build quality, perfect tasting coffee (as good as shops)
Con's: Had to descale after 2 weeks, er that's it!
