Coffee culture has taken over the world and made coffee aficianados out of all of us. You can now make your very own gourmet coffee without having to leave home. Miele introduces two  new countertop coffee makers. The brand new CM7 models, which are able to prepare up to 20 different beverages, including various types of tea. The top-of-the-line model, the CM7500, even descales automatically”.

“Long black”, “Flat white”, ‘Espresso macchiato” and much more – in choosing from a wide range of specialty beverages, lovers of fine coffee can slip effortlessly into the role of barista. The range comprises 16 different coffee variations alone. And, if you fancy a cup of tea instead, the new Miele freestanding coffee machines are more than willing to oblige – black, herb, fruit and green tea can be brewed at their own ideal temperatures respectively.

Compared with Miele’s previous CM6 series, Mercia de Jager from Miele notes that the new CM7 models feature larger containers for water, beans and coffee grounds. She says that another new convenience feature is the coffee and teapot function: “When visitors arrive, the unit can deliver up to eight cups into a pot for optimum convenience.”miele coffee-machine

Thanks to a removable brew unit and the automatic rinsing of milk lines, Miele coffee machines set standards when it comes to hygiene. And the CM7 now even dispenses with the irksome chore of descaling. Notes Mercia: “This loathsome task can now be done automatically overnight when the machine is not in use. The descaling agent required is dispensed from a cartridge, which lasts for approximately a year.”

In terms of design and user convenience, Mercia explains that the Generation 6000 built-in models were the inspiration for the new countertop units, “This pedigree starts with the design of the fascia with its colour TFT display (C Touch), which guarantees a simple and intuitive user interface, and continues with the CupSensor that enables the central spout unit to automatically height adjust.”

Further convenience features include the One Touch for Two functionality for the simultaneous preparation of two coffees, the BrilliantLight LED spout unit lighting, and up to 10 customisable user profiles. The CM7 range comprises the CM7300 (black). The higher-end CM7500 boasts the additional automatic descaling functionality, a heated stainless-steel cup rack, as well as a chrome-plated recess liner.

There are so many incredible functions and thoughtful touches to these machines, making them the ideal coffee companion. These are just a few of our favourites…

Dishwasher-friendly: The ComfortClean system makes hygiene very easy. Many of the CM7 coffee machine parts, such as the water container and the waste container for example, can be easily removed and cleaned in the dishwasher.

Consistent quality: The brewing component is the “heart” of automatic coffee preparation. It can be removed and easily cleaned to ensure a hygienic brew unit, consistently high coffee quality, as well as increasing the longevity of the machine.

Pleasantly quiet: Miele coffee machines grind coffee particularly quietly, boasting impressively low noise levels and consistently perfect results.

Two for one: All Miele bean-to-cup coffee machines are equipped with the new OneTouch for Two function, as well as with the already familiar OneTouch feature. This function allows you to make two delicious coffee specialities at the same time by simply touching a button.

Perfectly heated cups and mugs: The integrated cup heater featured in Miele’s CM7500 model provides extra convenience: pre-heated cups available at any time. Coffee needs to be at the correct temperature for perfect coffee enjoyment. Only then can the aroma unfold and a wonderful crema form

Truly energy-saving: In the Eco mode, the coffee machine does not heat up until just before the first beverage serving for optimum energy savings. The Eco mode is a freely selectable optional function and can be activated or deactivated via the basic settings.

Perfect milk froth: With the Cappuccinatore, you can prepare hot milk or milk froth in no time at all. In just a few seconds, it heats and froths the milk directly into the cup or glass. Afterwards, it can be easily cleaned in the dishwasher.
