Melitta Varianza CSP F57/0-102 : Great looking machine and great tasting coffee

I have only had this a week, and i love itfirst impressions – it is a good looking machine and is relatively small and compact. It doesn’t take up too much space in the kitchen and is quite discreet. Setting up the machine was very simple – it pretty much comes ready to use (just remove a few bit of tape which hold everything in place. Just fill up with water and beans, and away you go. I was initially a bit sceptical about the external milk container, but the hose is long enough to tuck it round the side. The supplied container is not insulated, so the milk very quickly warms up to room temperature – in the summer months this could be an issue. However, a stainless steel insulated container is available, and although not explicitly listed as being for this machine it seems to work fine. The default drink setting are pretty good – my only initial reservation was the amount of coffee and the temperature. However, these can all be customised to produce a full cup of piping hot coffee – i would urge anyone to read the instructions beyond the first few pages as they do give some hints on how to change the settings to suit your preferences. Mine didn’t come with any coffee beans (i am sure the listing said it did come with some trial packs.

Bought on black friday £299 cheaper. Makes great coffee, lovely and creamy. The only downside is that it uses a lot of water for making coffee, cleaning, rinsing etc so we have to fill the water tank couple of times a day.

When it arrived it was wonderful. It’s easy to use, it makes great coffee, it’s easy to (re-)program to get the strength, quantity and temperature of the beverages to your liking. It’s neat and compact and has good style. So, if i’d written this review 2 years ago, i’d have given it a 5-start rating without question. But, 2 years on, i’m not so sure. 1) it’s very picky about the type of bean you use – you can’t use oily ones as they stick to the sides of the hopper, so high-roast ‘espresso’ beans are a no-no in an espresso machine, unless you’re prepared to feed the ‘my bean select’ bypass every time. That rather defeats the object of a bean-tocup espresso machine2) the picky nature seems to extend to the size of bean as well, in my experience. Robusta beans don’t feed as well as arabica which is ok as arabica tend to be finer-flavoured, but some blends come with robusta and if that is your taste, you’re in trouble3) the machine sometimes decides not to work. Grinds coffee then empties it into the waste bin without brewing a drink. That seems to be an indication that it needs descaling, but you can waste a lot of coffee before you realise that.

Really smart machine and the smell of freshly grounded coffee in the morning – wow. The coffee tastes delicious. After few months from the purchase – i am really happy that i chose melitta.

This machine is great, easy to use (once you have it figured out) with plenty of options. Milk could be hotter but that’s not the end of the world. As it cleans itself regularly it needs a bit of attention (emptying the drip tray etc) but all good.

So far so great, wonderful coffee and a good solid machine. Pricey though – so it should be very good.

My Bean Select

The My Bean Select gives you a free choice of coffee beans from the whole variety available with every new cup of coffee. As well as the standard bean container (125 g capacity), with this innovation, you can try out different kinds of beans with each individual cup. It’s really simple with the practical measuring spoon, which is integrated in the bean container. Simply pour the required quantity of your choice of coffee beans into the bean chute, press the button and enjoy new types of coffee.

Best Aroma System Plus

The Aromasafe seal on the bean container means that the diverse flavours and aromas of your coffee beans are even better protected. The grinder runs until empty each time to prevent mixing different types of bean. The unique pre-brewing and extraction process (A.E.S.) ensures that the coffee flavour develops perfectly.
