Neat, stylish, easy to use and offers a good range of coffee beverages.
The first thing I notice once I had unpacked the Melitta Caffeo Varianza was how it looks. It is very neat and stylish and looks fantastic in my kitchen.
Initial set up is easy but you need to read and follow the instruction manual. You do need to allow a bit of time to understand how this machine works to get the best out of it.
The various beverage options are great and they cater for all coffee lovers... the drinks on the dedicated buttons at the front of the machine include Latte Macchiato (my personal favourite), Cappuccino and Espresso plus there are extra drink options which are located when you press the recipe button.
The thing I love about this machine is that you can adjust the settings to your own preferences. You can override any of the default settings to make coffee the way you like it.
Once I’d had the chance to find my way around the machine and had set it up to the way I wanted it I was impressed with the quality of the coffee. This machine makes an excellent Espresso!
The only downfall for me is the temperature of the milk based drinks, especially the Caffe Latte option. I've used the milk for these drinks as it is specified in the manual, however for me these are just not warm enough. Having to pop my coffee it in the microwave for a few seconds after I've made the drink kind of defeats the object.
Another thing that I like about this machine is the cleaning options. The machine runs a rinse cycle when the machine is turned on/off. After making a drink when milk is used it will always prompt you to run the Easy Cleaning programme ensuring that the nozzles and milk hose are kept nice and clean. This machine is very easy to look after and keep clean.
I'm not a coffee geek but I do enjoy a nice fresh coffee in the morning and this machine is the perfect way for me to enjoy this. I have also tested out a few of the drinks options on family and friends and they have commented on how good the coffee is.
