So i recently renovated my house and decided to splurge on a built-in coffee maker. After a lot of research, I decided to go with the Bosch Coffee Machine. Yes this is a bit pricey, but when compared to the competition, this is about $1000 cheaper.
Like most other built-in coffee makers, you need to talk to your cabinet maker before installing this. But once you do, it's awesome! The machine grinds up the perfect amount of coffee beans. There's tons of different coffees to choose from (espresso, cafe late, macchiato, etc.) You can also control it with the Home Connect app and download other types of coffee brews from around the world. The machine itself is not plumbed so there's tons of flexibility if you can't run a water line to the system. Instead, it has a water tank that you refill. It stores 1lb of whole coffee beans. It also store milk for a few hours (though I always take the milk canister out after I use it).
My one love/hate characteristic of this machine, is that it needs to clean before/after each use. Cleaning itself is great, however, when it cleans its pipes, it runs water through the spouts. So, if you want to use the Home Connect app to make coffee and you already have a mug in place, it will spew residual water into your mug before it brews the coffee, which of course, is not ideal. You can remove the mug and let it drip into the tray before you make coffee, but doesn't that defeat the purpose of using the Home Connect app to make coffee if you are away from the machine? This annoyance, however, does not take away from the machine as a whole.
I renovated my entire kitchen but I have to say, this is the thing I am most in love with! It looks great in my kitchen and works wonders!
