BUYERS' GUIDE STATE OF PLAY With over 20-million coffee machines sold annually in Europe, the trend is going towards fully automatic espresso machines (portioned capsule machines, with high pressure), with an increasing number of consumers looking at design and added functions as important purchase criteria. There are many variables in the process of making good coffee. The temperature of the water, the pressure of the water, the fineness of the ground coffee and how tightly the coffee is packed are just a few. The management of all of these variables enables the production of quality espresso. While one of the main variables is of course the coffee itself, on this page we look at what makes a good high-end machine.

Small kitchen appliances will become more and more integrated into the living surroundings while at the same time offering maximum functionality and user-friendliness. Energy efficiency will play an ever-greater role. KEY SELLING POINTS TEchnologY Energy efficiency Energy efficiency particularly has been enhanced in recent years with measures such as autopower-down, better insulation of hot parts and low or zero standby consumption. One striking development towards super efficient coffee machines in past years is the application of flow-type heaters - the current best available technology (BAT). Brewing temperature control If the temperature of the water is too low, under-extraction occurs. Since acids in the beans are the first substances to dissolve, the coffee will taste weak and have a sour flavour. If the water temperature is too high, then over extraction occurs and the coffee tastes bitter. High performance grinder In machines that include a grinder, a key USP is the efficiency and quiet functioning of the latter. A high performance grinder can reduce grinding time and noise grinding results throughout the lifetime of a machine. INNOVATING @ IFA inTElligEnT TECHnology For inDiviDUal inDUlgEnCE By MEliTTa The Caffeo Barista easily adapts to the individual preferences of up to four users: Thanks to the "My Coffee" function, coffee strength, temperature, coffee amount, milk and milk froth quantity as well as other parameters for any coffee specialty can be easily saved in the personal profile and retrieved upon request. » HALL 4.1 / STAND 208 BRAND 1 BRAND 2 BRAND 3 BRAND 4 » HALL X.X / STAND XXX » HALL X.X / STAND XXX » HALL X.X / STAND XXX » HALL X.X / STAND XXX COFFEE MACHINES FEATURES Ease of Use Self-explanatory operation due to individual programmability on an LCD display (see below). High-end machines include the choice of coffee strength and length. Energy Saving Mode or “eco-mode” is factory set but may also be programmed by the user This mode lowers the temperature of the heating element after a few minutes from standard 90°C to about 60°C. The coffee machine then is no longer in a real ready mode, but requires less heating time before dispensing coffee than heating up from cold state. Milk frothing device The foam produced should be both fine and compact, giving a creamy consistency with a subtle sweetness. Different kinds exist, but high tech frothers can now produce milk foam of unprecedented quality.
