Summary: I have had a Miele Coffee System for about five years. It makes excellent coffee, but it has several problems over the years. However, at this price point, one expects the customer service to be excellent, and it's most assuredly not. (I would rate the service to be one star.
Summary: We have had the CM5200 for almost 2 years, and it has worked reliably. I did not want to spend over $2K on a coffee maker, but my wife wanted it... and over the time we have had it, I have gotten quite comfortable with it, and now I think it was a good decision.
Summary: WOW, This spaceship of coffee machines, 2500$, but worth it. Lets say 2500$ is a lot of money, this is Luxury of Coffee machine at home. If you want to get the best get it. Otherwise Jura for 1000$ will make you same coffee.
Summary: Had one of these for just over a year. The coffee is inconsistent from the same beans and it has now broken down. So far it is over 4 weeks after being sent in for repair and I get nothing but promises that it will be back by X day and it doesn't arrive.
Summary: Definitely the worst coffee machine that I have ever owned! Actually, it makes good coffee, but it is a nightmare to manage. On many occasions I have been half way through making coffee for guests, when the warning light comes on "Clean Brew Unit".
Summary: I own several Miele household products. The coffee machine is a big disappointment especially considering the $2500 spent on it. I've owned the 5200 for 5 months. The espresso is weak even at the finest grind. (I even took it in for service after several cups because I thought something was wrong.
Summary: we have had this for about 9 months - so far it is great. Expensive but worth it especially if you like milk added drinks a few comments in re the other reviews oily beans are stick and will not always fall into the grinder causing the "out of beans" error message.
Summary: Next day machine stopped working. It shows message "fill the coffee bean container" and it doesn`t make any coffee. Nothing helping. Randomly shows some errors. It looks like the grounder is not working.
