This machine offers an easy-to-use approach. This is an important part of any design as no matter how sophisticated it is, if the users cannot comprehend the functions then it’s really nothing. With that in mind, this machine was created to operate with one simple touch. It comes with 15 bars worth of pressure with user-friendly controls. It can even be mastered by a novice connoisseur. And it truly works delivering espresso, latte or cappuccino after a few minutes.
This machine’s wonder starts with its automatic operation. With one push, it will automatically create your favorite morning drink with ease. This feature greatly reduces the amount of time waiting and fiddling with different controls, a common situation each morning. It takes approximately 5 minutes for it to prepare the drinks but the things is, you only have to stand by the machine when you need to put the espresso grounds into the filter or when setting up the milk into the container. This is a huge plus for people who have several morning rituals to deal with. It’s less worry and less effort from your part.
And after preparing your drinks, cleaning up the mess can also take away some of your precious time. Fortunately, the machine keeps the milk tube clean by passing some water after the frothing cycle is done. This function clearly saves time and effort from the users especially in the morning when everyone seems to need some extra time. It’s fast, convenient and mess-free. Also, the containers that are likely to need some cleaning at times, like milk and water reservoir, are removable for an easy wash-and-go cycle.
As for the espresso, it’s fantastic. The crema is perfect. The tray can fit those large mugs which is a good thing as many individuals like their mugs to be bigger. Also good to note is the water reservoir. It is transparent and you can clearly see the water level. Knowing when you need to fill up without removing the container is a good time saver as well.
Pricing for this machine can be found in the mid-range, around 399. Many people are quite skeptical with brands and prices. But the thing is, although there are other entry level machines that can make the same quality espressos, automation really play a huge favor for this machine. Mr. Coffee BVMC-ECMP1000-CS30 may not be your first choice when it comes to espresso making but the features that come with it can be compared to other expensive alternatives. And that’s a thing worth looking into.
Automated function is the best part. You don’t have to clean everything by yourself. Imagine cleaning the milk tube every time your brew. That will surely consume some precious time. Its one push button control is also a very nice trick to come by. All you have to do is add some grounds and milk and press a button. After which, all you have to do is to wait for your coffee. The controls can come up with your favorite single- or double-shot of espresso, cappuccino, or latte. The front layout is also pleasing to the eye: it is straight-forward, simple and every bit can be accessed pretty easily. Lastly, it can create some delightful espressos, the brewing quality you can find in known cafes.
One common complaint with smaller machines is whether it can accommodate taller mugs. This is among those machines that suffer this fate. Although it may not affect overall performance, it can surely cause some people to think twice before buying this machine. Then there’s the temperature. Although this machine can deliver around 140 degrees F, some people might not find it hot enough. Still, this machine has enough goods to make it a worthy investment that can serve you your favorite drinks for years.
