Miele Espresso Machines
Although the Miele espresso machines are Swiss-made kitchen appliances, the models that Williams-Sonoma offers have specific design features that cater to American standards and consumers. While Miele espresso machines are pricier than the usual coffee makers, they provide the luxury of enjoying café-quality coffee, espresso, cappuccino and latte right out from kitchen countertops.
Miele espresso machines have eye catching designs that mixes elegant style with functionality. Available Miele espresso makers are fully-automatic, which means that the machine is completely autonomous when it comes to regulating water pressure, temperature and measure; in grinding coffee beans and in disposing of them at the touch of a button. This ensures that the machines churn out espresso and other coffee brews with the same consistent quality. High water pressure coffee bean extraction and proper timing enhances the flavor and aroma of a cup of espresso. Miele fully-automatic espresso machines minimize errors and guesswork in these areas of espresso making, which results in a fine cup every time.
Among the function features of Miele espresso machines include the DirectSensor interface that is a standard in the brand's line of built-in kitchen appliances. The espresso machines has programmable settings that allow four users the option of setting their brew preferences including water temperature, coffee grind to water ratio, the fineness of the coffee grind and even the amount of froth. Instant serving programs of espresso, coffee, cappuccino, café latte and café macchiato are also available at the touch of a button. Among the machines' other features include 6-cup capacity cup warmer, cup illumination, dual universal nozzles and economy mode.
As far as cleaning and maintenance is concerned, Miele espresso machines have specialized designs that make these tasks simple. For instance, the milk system within the espresso machines has an automatic cleaning program that rinses its own piping network before excess milk dry up, making specialized cleaning agents unnecessary. Some of their parts such as the drip tray, brew unit and cappuccinatore are removable, which makes cleaning of these components easier.
The daily maintenance for Miele espresso machines are easy and runs autonomously with its automatic rinsing function. Weekly cleaning maintenance, on the other hand, requires light washing the unit and drying with paper towels. Miele espresso machines do also require thorough maintenance cleaning approximately every after 200 uses. Sensors within the machines send out an indication whenever the machine needs descaling and apart from the descaling tablets that came with the machine, Miele Descaling Tablets are also available for purchase separately.
