The first of two household gadgets I’ve received this week – an Espresso-maker is not the kind of thing I normally write about (and to be fair there’s not much you can say about a coffee maker to the general public – though I have been reading up on the intricacies of Espresso coffee on YouTube) but I like Blitzwolf products, I don’t think I’ve had anything from them yet that is duff. My wife is a recently retired food technology teacher so this is more her thing – I just like drinking coffee.
Anyway, below is a short video we took and I put together when the Blitzwolf BW-CMM2 arrived. The machine is claimed to produced up to 20 bar pressure (WELL above that needed to make traditional Espresso) and certainly makes a rich crema for the cup of coffee. The built-in steamer is easy and efficient to use and clean. The unit has an easy-to-read display and an easy-to-use manual (in several languages).
Coffee is one of those things most of us think little about yet drink every day – I do – often at local cafes, maybe 4-5 times a week. I guess marketing people would say that this machine instantly turns you into a latte-making Barista 🙂 and, as a bonus, it can also be used to make a frothy and creamy hot chocolate.
Other things Maureen likes about this device – it comes apart easily for cleaning and turns off automatically after 25 minutes. What she was not so keen on – the unit does not have the ability to use a pod – and the amount of coffee made automatically in single and double cupmodes is a tad small so she used the manual setting – but that’s down to personal preference.
UK viewers should be aware that at the time of writing, the link I’ve provided to the coffee machine may suggest that the product is not currently available in the UK. As soon as I get an updated link I will amend.
