There is also a high degree of customisation available for tweaking your drink recipes. In a nutshell, the Melitta Caffeo Barista allows you to enjoy your drinks exactly the way you want to.
Design and Features
The first thing that hits you when you come across one of these coffee makers is their clean finish. This coffee maker is a masterpiece when it comes to design. The display features touch sensitive buttons, which feel right at home in every modern kitchen. For loading the coffee, a spit hopper is provided.
This design allows you to add two different types of coffee beans into the hopper. When you are making a drink, you can choose which type of beans needs to be used. After filling up the 1.8L water tank, you can set the water hardness to suitable levels. Despite its high combustibility, the machine itself is surprisingly simple to use.
The computerised display and the touch sensitive buttons make it a breeze to use this machine. A click is all it takes to get your freshly ground cup of coffee or any other drink, for that matter. The LCD display guides the user and helps them navigate through the settings and options. Users can enter their preferences with simple touch and slide commands.
Smart Coffee Dispensing
Firstly, the split hopper allows you to load it with two different types of coffee beans. That’s not all. It even comes with two coffee dispensers so that you can get two cups of coffee out of it simultaneously. This makes it faster to distribute coffee when there are five or more people visiting you. Also, the machine has a high clearance, which means that you can use cups as big as 14cm with this machine.
Once you have got your drink, cleaning the machine is as simple as putting the hose into the drip tray, and it will begin its own cleaning cycle. Just empty the drip tray regularly. Also, the milk reservoir is attached on the side, which makes it easy to remove and clean. The machine even reminds you when it is time for cleaning.
Every Melitta Caffeo Barista machine comes with a 2-year warranty from the manufacturers. The machine is covered for this period or for 15,000 cups of coffee, whichever comes first.
- Stunning looks and upscale design
- Phenomenal tasting drinks; loaded with recipes, which can be customized
- Intuitive controls, super simple to use, and fast dispensing of two cups simultaneously
- Hardly requires any maintenance and will easily last much longer than 2 years
- Touch sensitive buttons are not as sensitive as one might expect.
