I have experience with XSmall Saeco and these experiences flow into this review with a.
Provide off / Packaging: The unit is very securely packed. The scope of delivery next to the device and the connection cable includes a scoop, which is required for the preparation of coffee from ground coffee from. A brush for cleaning is also available and a tube of grease for the Brew Group. As a shortcoming, I would view that is settled just a quick start guide which is good for little, you want to set the machine properly you need proper guidance which is already (see above) must download a roundabout way.
Coffee: This is obviously the most important on the device, which is good coffee? In my opinion, the unit makes a top coffee and the milk foam production which I would describe as Semiautomatscih times is just great, so far has this function from any milk which have been criticized for their produces a stable froth. Personally, I find the solution of the cleaning effort was elected here better than the OneTouch devices because holds very limited, which is important to me because I only 2-4 Cappuchino per day made re so for regular coffee. As a personal attitude, I have chosen the finest freeness and eigendlich always the largest amount per cup, you probably already noticed I'm on strong coffee, which must be no trace but bitter. The mastered the instrument with Bella Crema Espresso Melitta to the fullest satisfaction.
Construction: Here plays my experience with the XSmall a major role. The grinder is what is referred to by some as too loud, I personally find as pleasant of course, there is not a whisper but much quieter than the XSmall. The bean container is sufficient for about 15 cups and the waste container and the reciht for me most about the day. The water tank must be refilled from time to time.
Now we come to why I deducted a star. The device is nice and compact and thus is also advertised that it fits in small chicks. That's true but it unnecessary in my eyes design flaw. The water container is taken up by a retaining strap is folded upwards. The problem with this is that in kitchens where the wall units the water tank attached at normal height can not be taken because of the amount to the upper cabinet is insufficient to maintain an angle without him. That will not happen when it is filled. Ie you filled it in the inserted state. Fits you doing to not accurate and it goes a little water while pouring the container over, the water runs directly through a nonsensical Ausspaarung the bean container and directly into the grinder what then what is still through damp coffee in the mill is blocked. To solve this blockade is an immense effort because the Malhwerk not be accessed, you need strong compressed air.
Conclusion: All in all, a good device which at the coffee making is doing everything right but unfortunately the construction is not so well thought out.
