If you like the idea of an easier life, then this is a great solution. You can make your favourite coffee shop drinks, the way you like them. No need for a physics O’level (showing my age…and no I didn’t get one). As long as you have high quality, fresh coffee (from a reputable source, hint, hint) it is pretty straight forward.
- Take it out of the box.
- Soak the filter for 5-10 minutes.
- Wash out your tank.
- Put your filter in.
- Fill the water tank.
- Fresh beans in your hopper.
- Get grinding.
- Save programs
- Push button for desired coffee.
- Make coffee.
- Make some more coffee.
- Order from James Gourmet again!
On top of having a replicable espresso (this is a good thing and something that a number of “Professional machines” aren’t perfect at) The touch also allows you to change the exact temperature and texture of your milk. If you want silky light, creamy milk for latte art, it is literally easier than many traditional machines. For me, I would only need 2 options. Espresso and then I would have my version of a Flat White. I could then just increase the amount of milk, to match the drink size. None of that frothy nonsense for me thanks. You can choose what you like and how you like it and play.
On the plus side, these are incredible value for money. For repeatable drinks, this is great.
