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.
