Positive Product Points
Simple to operate Great double shot system Easy to clean Variable strength No more mess makes it a favourite with my wife
Negative Product Points
Milk frothing technique needs to be learned Works better with milk frother removed Maybe the water tank could hold a bit more
This is a very simple to operate unit that makes a very professional tasting coffee. It's easy to use and simple to clean out. The unit tells you when to clean, when to fill the tank and when the hopper needs more beans. Bean grind can be adjusted. For some, the auto frother works fine but I found that by removing the frother you can really work up a much better result with a fine and consistent froth right through the milk. It just takes some practice. My issue was that after my little Sunbeam manual model, this unit heats up the milk so quickly you must really concentrate.
Purchased at Myer Department Store new year sale at a really good price.
Three Month Followup
Our machine remains in good working order and the quality of the coffee is excellent particularly when attention is made to the purchase of fresh beans and we continue to have fun appreciating the differences with the many styles of beans available. To be very pedantic, I still would like to be able to make the milk froth up a little finer. It is particularly difficult when making one cup. When frothing larger quantities then a much better result is gained. Everyone else thinks I am crazy but, I am a coffee geek aren't I?
