About this deal
If the water reservoir still shows the water reservoir icon after following the above steps, try removing the water reservoir from the coffee maker and filling it with water. The coffee machine is much quieter than I’d expected, and because it makes your drink so quickly, the noise that is made, is over in a flash.
There were some helpful setup instructions in the box and it didn't take long to get it ready for use.If hard water is used it is recommended to descale once a month, if soft water is used once a quarter is sufficient. Bursting with clever touches, it features a Doppio+ button that delivers more than a double shot of espresso when you need an extra boost, a Long Coffee function that reproduces the taste of a drip filter coffee through slow and low pressure brewing. If you're using a bean-to-cup machine (with a built-in grinder), simply run the descaling program (see the user manual of your appliance for more details).
We also found cappuccinos were a few degrees hotter than they should be and would've liked a little more flexibility from the frothing nozzle, which had limited movement. Compact and easily removable boiling block not only makes delicious coffee, but also is very easy to take care of and clean, which will guarantee your machine’s long serving time. As much as 98% of your coffee is made up of water, so it makes perfect sense to suggest that a truly great cuppa requires a pure, high-quality water base. The display shows "Fill coffee bean container" even though there are beans available and the beans cannot pass through, this could be caused by a clogged coffee ground container or a faulty sensor.
Your machine does a quick rinse before each use so make sure you have something underneath to catch the water. At first it’s great good strong flavour then becomes weak and let’s not even talk about the pre ground option.
This is a great option for those who enjoy milky, barista-style coffees and are looking for a machine that's simple to use.The ability to change the strength of the coffee has been particularly useful as it enables us to alter the strength per cup of coffee for everyone. The harder it is, the more often you should descale (automatic machines allow you to program the hardness of water and calculates how often descaling should be done according to that).
