    Good coffee but flawed design.

    The coffee tastes great but there are several areas where the design could be improved. The drip tray is large but very flat and shallow sided. So when you pull it out you need to have a steady hand to prevent spillages. My model has a fault where the indicator to empty it comes on after just one cup. Another issue is the water reservoir. The hinges for the cover make it difficult to line up with the tabs when you put it back. The level sensor tells you when it's empty, but this doesn't tell you if there's enough water for the next brew. You can easily end up with half a cup. Finally the indicator lights for strength are positioned over the two-cup button, so you can easily start brewing when all you wanted to do is change strength.

    Little faulty, but good value

    Great machine. Had an issue where initially the water would go directly to the collect tray... dismantled it and magically worked. Other than that - great machine and grearer price

    So far so good

    So far so good, only had the machine for a week but so far it's been easy to use. The setup instructions really leave something to be desired but it's mostly common sense anyway.

    Great coffee and very easy to use

    Good product and great coffee. Easy to get info from Melitta via internet if required

    Tasty coffee

    Quieter than my previous machine, good grind. I like strong coffee and it deli ef with good creme.

    Great once you figure it out

    Makes an amazing coffee, although the instructions arent the clearest.

    Makes good espresso

    Good value and well made, makes good espresso. Uses more beans than I'd anticipated though!

    Melitta Caffeo Solo Review

    The Melitta Caffeo Solo coffee machine is super easy to set up and get going with, load the coffee beans in the top, fill the water reservoir and away you go, after testing your water hardness (there's a little strip in the box you dip in water and set accordingly). The drip tray is a little on the small side and fills up fairly quickly, you'll need a steady hand to get to the sink without any spillages as the sides are shallow. Other than that it's a brilliant coffee maker and I'd highly recommend.
