About this deal

In terms of durability and performance for the life of the machine, the Melitta Caffeo Solo is a step above the competition — even some of the high-end machines that are out there. The clear range of functions and components makes it perfect for singles and small households that only require frothed milk once in a blue moon. A short, sharp, strong espresso in a tiny cup to give a jolt to your day, just the way the Italians love coffee? Let’s face it: when it comes down to it, there really aren’t discontinued models in the fully automatic coffee machine world.

Though the cleaning, water tank, pump pressure of 15 bar and such are still the same, the Purista seems more sophisticated overall and more ‘target-group oriented’. Melitta made a design choice about the placement of the lever to adjust the coarseness of the grinder on the Solo that’s a bit cumbersome. This review was originally written back in 2016 for their E953-101 model, but has now been updated several times for the current E957-103 edition. So, of course, the question remains as to whether the Melitta Caffeo Solo could replace your classic filter coffee machine? Even so, pouring an espresso took around eight seconds, which is far too quick; around 20 seconds is the right amount of time.One of the best features of all is the milk frothing nozzle that allows you to add just the right amount of creamy froth to your coffee, enhancing the appearance as well as the taste of your drink. That’s why the Melitta Caffeo Solo is perfect for individuals who live alone or who simply don’t need the luxury of frothed milk.

It doesn’t take long to rinse it under running water, and doing so will prolong the life of the machine.One great thing about the Melitta Caffeo Solo is that even beginners will have no problem getting great results out of the machine. The espresso part is the same in each, and when I talk about the milk based drinks I will make it clear which option I am referring to.

A selection of our bean to cup coffee machines also include two bean chambers, this function allows you to fill your coffee machine with two types of coffee bean so you can easily select between bean types without needing to empty and refill the machine. Whilst this is a lot simpler than doing it yourself, I personally think the quality of foam it makes is not as good as what even a novice barista could achieve. You can also adjust the amount of coffee you get up to 220ml, and with the option of brewing two cups at the same time. Take your coffee personalisation to the next level with the Melitta® Connect App, a selection of our bean to cup coffee machines offer app connectivity. The machine came back from being "repaired" and it looked scruffy, coffee all over, didn't look good.What does this mean, not much to the average coffee drinker, but for more experienced baristas it means the Crema was a little thin and dissipated quite quickly. When it comes to black coffee, however, you can’t expect the same results from the Melitta Caffeo Solo as from a full-sized fully automatic espresso machine.
