Summary: We had an older version of this machine for 8 years and love it. The Z5 is not as nice or does it work as well. The central spout does not adjust,so you can only make small cups of coffee. Within the first year we have had to send the machine in twice for repairs. They were very nice and the machine is back in a few days,but this should not happen so often. They never let us know what was wrong with the machine...and next time it will not be under warranty. .
Summary: For a great cup of coffee, the Z5 cannot be beat. However, its reliability is suspect. I am about to return my unit to be repaired for the 3rd time in as many years. Worse, their process is cumbersome and time consuming. Amazing what I will tolerate for a great cup of coffee! Its akin to owning a German car... It has a reputation of luxury, it performs fantastic, is engineered expertly, is expensive, breaks often, is expensive to repair, and slow to get it fixed.
Summary: Als langjähriger Konsument von Espresso Vollautomaten (Jura, Saeco, DeLonghi) möchte ich Ihnen vor dem Erwerb eines neuen Espresso Automaten einige Tips aus meiner Erfahrung geben. Grundsätzlich habe ich die Feststellung gemacht, dass der Geschmack des Endproduktes zu 95% von der Qualität der verwendeten Kaffeebohnen bestimmt wird. Gehen Sie nicht davon aus, dass der hohe Kaufpreis Ihres neuen Espresso Automaten eine Garantie für wohlschmeckenden Kaffee ist.
