When you have looked on you tube for decent instructions this machine make good coffee. The Instructions are small and incomprehensible. It would be quite easy to rip barcode off cleaning disc by assuming paper should not go in your coffee. This is the start. The so -called instructions don't give a clear picture on how to insert discs - it becomes obvious when you try one upside down but this shouldn't be necessary. The led instructions are either hopeless or I have a faulty machine that makes coffee. Mention is made of green led - I have only seen orange ones. No mention of whether to plug in before inserting disc. No mention of being able to dismantle head to clean. I will write clear instructions, with 2 or 3 simple diagrams at no cost if Bosch would like help - they need it.
I will give it a week or so to continue behaving else it is going back to Amazon.
This was bought to replace Tassimo machine with rear reservoir. The reservoir on this machine is in the side and holds enough for two cups of Americano which is very small. If you drink more than two cups a day you will quickly find having to constantly refill it a bit of a pain. The instructions that come with the machine are probably the worst i have every seen on any electrical device. I had used similar machine for many years but how to flush the machine initially was guess work as graphic instructions really difficult to use It uses capsules with bar code which gives consistent results but restricts which ones you can use
my last Bosch Tassimo finally packed up so needed a replacement. Bargain price but slightly smaller then i expected but does the job and coffee is just delicious . Highly recommend
update ... need help Put a pod in and got few drops of coffee and then it has stopped and now cannot even open to get the pod out. Looked online for support and did everything it suggested and still 3 hours later cannot open it so needless to say now extremely disappointed. Please help before I have to send it back
the company are having lots of trouble with the pods and they kind of explode in the machine so had to send it back, so only 3 stars but its not the coffee machine that's at fault however daren't get another Costa machine, faults with pods being reported all over the internet
First day I would have given it 5 stars. Coffee and hot chocolate was fantastic if a little expensive for a small cup. But didn’t take long before warning lights came on and it refused to work. This was possibly due to user error but I thought I knew what I was doing! Unfortunately it wasn’t long before this went to the recycling centre.
Bought to replace a bosch machine iv'e had at least 10 years Now there's 10 or so to choose from ! went a bit away from the cheapest so it will last its okay ,all it has to do is take a pod and make the coffee water tank is smaller than my original and it feels like it wants to break as you push the lid down onto the pod
This matchine is the best loved it ever since I bought it and now when I use it, everyday every time I want a drink it’s got to be cleaned? Over the past week I’ve had to clean it at least four times for me to get the rest of my drink... so obviously it’s broken and I’m going to have to get another which I won’t be doing if they only last a month.. they’re not worth it at all I’m really upset.
It does the job, I thought I was going to Love this product but I think it is not as great a deal as portrayed, I bought it because the Tassimo products are the brands which I like. I have had it only a few days and the pods have leaked a few times making a bit of a mess. It is Noisy !!! Which doesn’t bother me but isn’t in keeping with its classy look. It was stated to be reduced from around £100 to £39.99. I think I would be returning it if I had paid full price.
Easy to clean, easy to operate, however is incredibly loud and costs a lot compared to simply brewing your own coffee. A worthwhile investment if you particularly enjoy the more "modern-style" coffees such as lates, mochas, etc. Just don't be fooled by the price of the machine, it's the overpriced pod refills that make up the price overtime. ;)
