Advantages: simple to use, easy to follow instructions and creates great tasty coffee in a instant
Disadvantages: coffee can spill out if machine has not come to a stop
With the exitement of moving into my first flat the first thing I wanted to do was buy as many kitchen gadgets as possible with a coffee maker top of my list. Being on a budget, I searched around for a bargain and found one in the shape of this Delonghi machine which I picked up from argos at the reasonable price of £22.99. After a quick dash to the shop for ground coffee and coffee filters, I was eager to get this one going.
This machine comes with its own coffee scoop and in built filter which can be taken out to be cleaned so theres no need for filters but I still use filters just to save on the messy job of cleaning the filter after each use. The side of the machine has a water level which indicates the amount of water needed depending on the amount of cups of coffee you want to make, saving on power and waste. The instructions are easy to follow and also give you helpful tips on how to create the strengh of coffee wanted. Another added bonus is the wonderful coffee aroma it creates in your house. The machine is so simple to use, all you do is add your desired amount of water a few scoops of coffee then click the on button.
The coffee takes around 5-10 minutes to make and you can actually see it working within seconds. The water goes from cold to hot and through the cofee in a matter of moments. The only downfall I have found is you do have to wait for the machine to completly stop to get your coffee. if you take the jug out too early coffee still pours out of the spout and straight on to the plate beneath the jug and burns, although im not too sure if this applies to other machines. But other than that I have had no problems with this machine.
I would certainly recommend this to anyone who is looking for great tasting coffee, with no fuss or frills and for a reasonable price.
Summary: a great little machine for people who want simple coffee no frills coffee
