Melitta Barista TS SMART Bean-to-Cup Coffee Machine F860-100 5 "After much research, we chose the right machine..." Mr Bates 10 May 2019 At first glance the build quality disappointed, with a lot of touch controls rather than buttons to press and a lot of plastic, even if there were also many more coffee options than our much loved de Longhi Prima Donna. Now, a few weeks on, that seems a dinosaur. The Melitta TS Smart is superb: it really does make the sort of coffee you get in the best coffee bars and it does so much more: we design coffee to suit our tastes. The dual bean hopper is a real plus. Negatives? Perhaps the automatic washing out that leaves a tray of water to clear rather frequently. Well worth the £950 price.
