Disadvantages: Can be tricky the first few times
I am a self-confessed caffeine addict and was in love when I came home to find my nan had bought this!
It is about twice the size of my kettle but still very compact and was easy to carry out, the design is really sleek and stylish, there is a nice cream panel with silver sides, one displaying how much water you have in the machine, when the machine is on it has an electric blue light on also very stylish and up to date, the jug fits in well and doesn't stick out at all.
*How to use*
Right before we turn it on, we remove the jug, we just take off the lid fill with the water down the side and put the filter ground coffee in filter, close the lid and put the jug back in, so its really easy to set up but can be a bit fiddly, the coffee making was very complicated when I first started as you have to always measure out exactly how much coffee you want, because if its less then five you press the "aroma button" to strengthen the coffee (if you like it strong) then click it on, the machine will make the coffee and the machine will keep it hot until you want it and after 2 hours will turn itself off!
*Coffee for later*
Before I had this I had no idea that coffee machines could be set for the time you wanted it so I was really impressed, to get my coffee set for the time I wanted it did take a lot of getting used to as well, You need to remember the aroma button again, set the clock to the correct time and then set the timer to start brewing at a certain time, The downside of this is that every time you unplug it you have to reset the clock and that can get annoying but once your used to it, it can be very handy!
*Cleaning and care*
None of the parts can be put in the dishwasher which is a pain, but I did find it quick and easy to clean out in the sink, I had to wait for a couple of hours with it unplugged to make sure it was cold, the filter was easy to take out, empty into the bin and wash up in the sink along with the jug and the filter holder and was easy to put back together, I always have a quick wipe on the outside to keep it clean too!
Tastes amazing, its a defo 10/10 and is never too watery and the aroma settings make sure that each cup of coffee is as strong as it should be.
*Price and Delivery*
My nan bought this from amazon for £72.50, which does sound like a lot but it is a really good machine and it arrived the next day which was great, you can also get a floral, blue and red machine to match your kitchen
Summary: An awesome coffee machine!
