First superautomatic coffee machine, got it on a slight discount and very pleased with the purchase. Convenient and easy to use and makes good coffee for a super automatic machine. Good size as well and fits in small corners perfectly.
Very good looking machine,a real jewelry in the kitchen. Easy to operate,and the quality of the coffee. . Fabulousstrongly recommendedonly for real coffe lovers :).
Perfect coffee every time, regardless of bean or grind. Easy to use, easy to set up and the presets are a great touch. Makes coffee as good if not better than the high street chains.

“MAKES GREAT COFFEE
, Great bean to cup machine for the price.
, Four Stars
This coffee machine performs and is clean and simple to use and set up. I have only one slight complaint that is the coffee could be slightly warmer as we require a short scoot of steam just to top up the temperature. Apart from the above all is a ok.
This machine is a revelation to someone who has only used a cheap manual one before and makes great coffee. The steamer is very quick and makes great frothy milk although the water pump is somewhat noisy when steaming. It is as well to have a spare cup underneath at all times because when it is switched on and off it clears out any surplus water from the steamer and coffee outlet. The coffee grounds drawer stops all operations even steaming when it is full (or the machine thinks it is)which is counter intuitive. After a few months i would also observe that the water pump needs priming fairly often – switching the machine to hot water function resolves this issue.
Replaced my gaggia platinum vision which served well for 7 years. Hasn’t got as many bells and whistles but at half the price it does everything i really need. One thing to note is that i bought this from amazon directly (shipped via germany) and it came with a european plug. Luckily it takes a standard cranked kettle style connector that i had from my old machine.
Easy to use, makes great coffee although because it is compact, regularly filling water container.
