Nice cup of coffee
18 November 2018
Had it now for several months.
A very stylish looking machine that makes tasty coffee with a lovely creme.
Watch out, the machine is surprisingly deep, though both the water reservoir and bean compartment are quite small.
Operation is a little mixed, only a few buttons and dials, but in order to initially set things up, all sorts of combinations may have to be pressed.
The supplied manual is... well it could be a lot easier to understand. I would recommend downloading the Melitta app. Things are then so much easier.
As for maintenance - cleaning and de-scaling - the app gives step by step instructions and guides one through a somewhat bewildering order of pressing buttons. I think this is a result of it being a 'less endowed' machine ie cheaper and not having dedicated buttons or a LED or LCD display.
So, coffee - very good and tasty
On board storage (water & beans) - a bit lacking
Maintenance - slightly head scratching (definitely need the app)
Am I happy with my purchase? Yes, I am. Makes much better coffee than my previous bean to cup machine (Krups).
I can't comment on the milk frothing etc, as I haven't used it.
