HOW TO CREATE BARISTA STYLE COFFEE AT HOME WITH MIELE COFFEE MACHINE CM6150
I think we can all agree that coffee isn’t coffee. I think you know what I mean. After having sampled, probably more than I should, of barista coffee, you get quite picky. I’m no longer happy with an instant coffee and will admit to have become a bit of a coffee snob. Who hasn’t, with all this great choice we now have. Did you know that coffee is the most popular drink in the UK?
We had been thinking about getting a coffee machine for a while, but hadn’t quite found the right one for us. Until we saw the freestanding white MIELE CM6150 coffee machine and it’s minimal design. It fits in perfectly on our worktop and doesn’t take up too much space.
I thought that getting a coffee machine would make me drink far too much coffee, but it’s actually to the contrary. As this is like having a coffee shop coffee, I never have the coffee craving that I used to get after drinking instant coffee. So instead of having coffee after coffee, I know have one or two a day and it’s a much more pleasant experience. It’s so exciting to be able to make barista style coffee at home in our own kitchen!
‘ONETOUCH FOR TWO’ FUNCTION
The CM6150 is easy to use and has a ‘OneTouch for Two’ function, which means you can make two coffees at the same time. The machine does all the work for you, which is ideal for us with little time to spare. We both work from home and are busy all day. Coming together for a quick coffee is our little social interaction during the day before we rush off to different offices again.
MIELE CM6150 coffee machine has two coffee options. As there’s a built in coffee grinder, you can choose to add coffee beans or already ground coffee. We’ve come to love adding coffee beans, as this means the coffee tastes extra fresh. It makes the kitchen smell amazing and it kind of feels like you’re in a coffee shop. The intense coffee aroma adds to the whole experience.
A cappuccino is our drink of choice, but there are plenty of options. We add milk to a jug and the machine steams it before adding it to the cup. You can add two shots of coffee if you like, but I personally don’t think you need to.
You might think that the CM6150 is difficult to clean, but it’s actually very easy. It’s self cleaning, so all you have to do is remove the excess water from the drip tray. It’s even dishwasher safe.
If you’re looking for a new coffee machine, we would highly recommend this one. I have a promo code for you, use code HEGE10 and get 10% off the CM6150 in all colours until the end of June.
