I had been looking for a new coffee machine for several months and then came across this one. I reach all the reviews, watched load of videos and then ordered it. I can honestly say, its the most incredible coffee machine we have owned, and look forward coffee time so that i can continue drinking amazing coffee it makes. Without a doubt i would recommend this coffee machine to anyone who are looking to replace theirs.
Excellent product & very much enjoying so far. Great value against other equiv.
Easy to use and make a great coffee.
Delicious coffee every time with great recipe ideas. Easy to use, clean and operate. Brilliant replacement for the previous machine.
I’m really enjoying the taste of the coffee and it’s so easy to set up and use.
Just purchased this fantastic machine the espresso really is better than costa not exaggerating it really is. Was a bit sceptical after reading the reviews but so far so good. So now for the bad bit the app😡it does not work either on ios or android and as i’m a bit of a tech geek i’m a little gutted, hopefully the app will at some stage address the issues and work. That aside this machine does exactly what it’s supposed to do and that is make great coffee. In my opinion well worth the moneymachine 10/10app 0/10.
Firstly, forget about the bluetooth connectivity as this is an unreliable gimmick, but the melitta app is highly useful for the maintenance and cleaning of the machine. Each part of the cleaning process is explained in the simplest way, a must have if trying to see the instructions on the machines screen is hard for you. Ok, on to the machine itself. Unpacking the machine is easy enough, but you do need to read the instructions carefully to ensure you have the hardness of your water and other information as and when needed. On first use i did an extra 2 coffees to flush the machine before actually drinking what it makes to ensure that it is only coffee you’ll be drinking and not lubricants. For drink preparation the machine can make 4 coffee variations from the front panel, but there are many more available from the menu system on the machine. The ability to save your favourites by person is useful to a certain extent and is extensive in the options for each coffee type but is limited to 1 setting per person per coffee option. To use a mycoffee option, you first press the mycoffee icon then select cappuccino or latte and the machine starts straight away. I mostly use this due to a set coffee cup size and bean settings for latte and cappuccinos. The grinder is not silent but it is quiet enough not to be annoying, the bean hoppers hold enough for 15 – 20 cups in a single coffee dose setting and the machine is conservative in warning you about the hopper being empty and on swapping brands or strengths you do get a mix of beans for a couple of cups.
Don’t do any of the milk beverage options but for an espresso or longer black coffee it’s the best machine i’ve had by far. Coffee quality as good as any starbucks or costa or maybe even betterbit pricey but totally worth the extra spend.
- Only lasted 2 weeks
- Makes a good cup of coffee, but

But must try all make of coffee beans, then when you’ve got the right one it’s better than the coffee shop s.
This is a very sophisticated coffee machine and our second bean to cup one. This has a built-in frother and two pods for coffee beans, which are stand-out features over the cheaper machine we had before. It is hugely configurable, you can spend a long time figuring out exactly how you like your coffee, and not only that you can store the exact settings, so you can make the same cup over and over again. There are several ways of using it. You can either manually set the amount and strength of coffee using the controls on the front of the machine, where you also set which container you want the beans from. It has a display which shows you what needs emptying, filling and which part of the machine this is located in. It can even tell you if it has run out of coffee half way through a cup, let you fill the container, then resume where it left off. This is all very well for making basic espressos and americanos. But for the coffees involving milk, you need to attach the milk container. There are several buttons at the top of the machine which have pre-programmed recipes for latte, cappuccino etc.
I am so happy with this coffee machine, such a clean machine, it is so clean, it makes you clean it after every use and descale it monthly. No mess from the double grinders. Would recommend this to anyone buyimg a bean to cup machine.
Purchased for melitta barista coffee machine and is just the ticket.
Expensive but simple to use with lots of options for those who wish to modify their coffee. Let down by dodgy bluetooth.
We love the arrangement for having two different sorts of beans. I use decaffeinated beans while my husband prefers normal beans and so we can both use the machine at the same time. We haven’t used the bluetooth technology as we don’t need it. It is very stylish, quiet and makes fantastic coffee.
Love, love, love this coffee machine. My nespresso started to play up so decided to sit one night going through reviews for bean to cup domestic systems. Certainly an extravigent purchase but also sure it can do far more than i’ve experimented with so far. I’ve really only tried out the button settings for the short and tall coffees, playing with intensity etc but i can say this is the very best coffee i’ve ever had.
I bough this machine after reading lots of good reviews. At the time it was £750 which seemed reasonable for a machine that can make decent quality coffee at the press of a button. The machine is very easy to use and does make great brews. Cleaning is simple as is filling the water and bean hoppers. The down side is that it is big and almost fills a standard kitchen worktop depthwise. If you place it underneath wall cupboards you will probably have to pull it out each time you fill the water or bean hopper. Mine sadly developed a fault at some point after the first day such that the menu button did not work. I only found this out when i attempted to use the smart function on the second week. Melitta advised me to return the machine to amazon as this would be easier than going through their warranty route. Returning was easy but for some reason amazon did not replace the item as requested but instead gave me a refund.
- Only lasted 2 weeks

Melitta F86/0-100 Barista TS Smart Coffee Machine, 1450 W, 1.8 liters, Stainless Steel
I have had the coffee machine for a few months. It does produce good coffee out of the box. However it’s takes a little time but by playing with the settings it does produce a very good cup of coffee. One thing that has been said it is not very hot, that is correct it is considered cooler than from a kettle but if i remember correctly the water temperature is supposed to be 78 degrees. The temperature can be set higher in the programming however for some people it still would not be hot enough. I do from time to time put it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. It has a smaller than average water/grinds tray but it is designed to be emptied regularly to stop mould growing, thus keeping the taste fresh. Overall it is a very good coffee machine better taste by far than the delonghi i had before. Worth to investment-to date i have made 254 coffees and still nice quaility.
Been using this now for 2 weeks, and we’re delighted with it. Coffee is excellent quality – mainly espresso or ristretto for me, but visitors have commented favourably on lattes, cappuccinos, etc. Cleaning is easy enough, although emptying the drip tray is less easy – it’s quite small capacity, and very shallow, so easy to spill. I’m even finding the much-criticised app useful.
Fully automatic, intuitive, easy to use.
Really easy to use, via the app, programed coffees or customising your own.
The machine itself is ok but the big selling point is you can operate it through your smart phonethe reality is bluetooth connectivity is an absolute nightmareits a shame but it might have to go.
Since this is a bean to cup coffee machine, it does not generate plastic waste. It makes excellent coffee and is very versatile. It can deliver hot milk or hot frothy milk. Its default recipes can be modified to suit your own tastes which means that it is easy to get a great cup even when you are not fully awake in the morning.
Great first class coffee machine i’m very happy.
Having been shopping around for a new coffee machine for some time, i decided to finally go with the melitta over the jura and miele machines and save myself £1000+. My old machine was a nespresso gran maestria which served me well, but the amount of waste produced and the fact that all the different types taste very similar, has made me reconsider pod coffee. The packaging is suitably premium with everything included like milk carafe, water filter, milk system cleaner, and a descaling tablet. The machine itself is nicely made, and even in black looks quite large (two shoeboxes or a mini atx pc case)the most important things for me are quality of drinks, ease of maintenance, range of drinks, and technology. The melitta definitely delivers a great, feature-packed performance for the relatively small price and the milk system cleans the pipe straight into the drip tray after every drink automatically, which is a big advantage over jura as running costs are lower and it’s more convenient. The bluetooth works fine on ios but the range of about 6m and the fact that you can’t turn on or off the machine using it, makes it more of a curiosity than a daily tool unless you’re busy doing something else in the kitchen. Let’s just call that a security feature. Wifi connection and smart home integration would be nice. The coffee is very well made with good crema (the water filter helps here) and the dual bean hopper gives you lots of options, though reduced hopper size per bean. There are plenty of settings to play with for flavour, changing the amount of coffee, milk and water dispensed, coffee temperature and brew time/strength amongst others.
After 3 months of use i am really impressed with this machine, it’s easy to clean and has an amazing amount of settings and functions that you can customise. The mobile app is slightly under developed and needs more work from melitta however i’ve hardly used it, once you setup your recipes on the main touch screen you’re good to go. Highly recommend and wouldn’t look at another brand.
This machine is definitely worth the money. However, the app doesn’t work on iphone. So it’s a waste of money if that’s the main reason you are getting this one as opposed to one model down. Also, for those who really like a hot milk, this machine isn’t for you. It produces a decent froth but the milk is warm rather than hot as you would get it in a coffee shop. In the case of normal size late the temp is ok as proportions are 2:1. If you like a large latte with more milk you might find it not hot enough. Overall, good machine but take into consideration above-mentioned points.
