Excerpt: I was concerned about reviews I'd read about broken machines delivered, complex setups, and overly complex user experience.What I found was a setup that was complex but not impossible, a machine that walks you thru most things, and an interesting language system that is clearly European. It's important to actually pay attention to the instructions on screen and read. Once you get it; it's simple and effective.
Pros: Automatic Espresso, Bean To Cup, Best Coffee Ever At Home, Capresso, Coffee Path Cleaning, Ease of Use, Jura, Miele, Reasonable Temp Control, setup instructions
Cons: Cup Size Chabges, Customization On The Fly, Setup process, Size Setup In General
Excerpt: This machine makes great coffee, but it consistently says its out of coffee beans about every two cups brewed. Simply push the beans into the hopper and its happy for another two cups. For the price, this just should not be the case. It appears that the sensor is too sensitive or the hopper is not steep enough to keep the beans moving into the grinder. I'm disappointed in this machine and would not recommend it.
Excerpt: I love this machine. Had it for about two months now, and it works great. I make Breve Lattes Everyday. The quality is equal too or better than all the fine coffee shops I've been too. Easy to maintain. You can choose your favorite coffee beans instead of only having the choices of the fine coffee shops. Everyone that comes over and tries a cup of expresso,coffee or a latte loves the taste and complains when they go back home to make their own cup from their machines.
Excerpt: After 20 years of grinding coffee and pulling shots on an semi automatic, I opted for this super automatic. With a push of a button, this product brews the perfect cup everytime...couldn't be happier! Programming is easy and allows one to control all of the variables necessary to achieve consistent results. This is a highly engineered machine easy to use, clean and maintain; hopefully its as durable as other Miele products we own.
Summary: This is a great coffee maker. You can preset the size of the cup you want. The expresso is excellent and the container for frothing the milk is well thought out. I would highly recommend the fully automatic machine over the mess and fuss of a hand operated system.
Excerpt: Just got our Miele CM5100 and Love it. Makes the best tasting coffee that I have ever had. I travel alot and am a big coffee drinker. I've gotten spoiled by the unbelievable taste. Guess I'm going to have to fill the thermos for the road. Very user friendly with variable temperature and strength settings for my whole family. Easy to clean too. Well worth the money.
Excerpt: I purchased this machine Dec. 19th and returned it Jan 16th. Fist off I couldn't get the coffe temp pass 135 degrees even with the setting at high, also kept getting code 72 errors and also even with the coffee beans in I was getting an error to fill. I called Miele over 15 times and not one of their reps had any knowlegde on this machine, they told me it was new to the market and that they were learing.
