This Smeg coffee machine uses 15-bar pressure to force the pressurized water through the coffee in the filter to make excellent coffee shop style espresso or creamy cappuccino from grounds coffee or ESE pods*, and is very simple to use. The efficient thermoblock heating system heats water as it is used by passing water through at different speed to produce the perfect temperature of water for brewing coffee without burning the grounds. This technology allows for smaller machines and are much cheaper to run that one with a conventional boiler. It has a simple control system with one-touch settings for 1 cup, 2 cups or steam, and the buttons can also be used to adjust the temperature, change the water hardness setting, or programme the auto shut-off time. Flow stop function allows you to customise your coffee length and a mug tray for latte macchiato glasses if that’s your preference.
