descale disaster

 

Daily clean is easy but the descale takes 2 hours to perform. This is an absolute waste of your time every month or so. Needless to say the unit loses so much water into the overflow tray you are forever stopping to empty. Engineering here is quite...

Ok, not amazing.

 

We use it daily, it is far from perfect but fairly solid. The coffee grind is pretty solid and the controls are fairly solid as well. The cleaning of the device is a bit tedious and the water tank is pretty quick to empty (that might be that we are...

Too Unreliable - Not Recommended

 

ot water comes out the water spout when that is selected, but steam comes out the side of the machine and no coffee comes out. So the machine is out of warranty by four months, and I am faced with a bill of $125 plus parts, and parts will cost anywhere...

Piece of Rubbish

 

We sent our back because the coffee tasted too hot and burnt. The machine asked to be cleaned fortnightly and the cleaning process took too long. After it was returned we were told there was nothing wrong with the machine. The coffee tasted better and...

OK Now

 

The Cal-Clean eventually began to work well with our Minuto. Since the machine has worked really well and we are very happy with it. It makes a good cup of coffee dispensing about 8-10 cps per day for our team. It extracts a good amount if coffee from...
