I am considering buying one of these to replace my deceased DL. Given my age, it could well be the last coffee machine I buy.

 

Does anyone have any information or experience that could assist me in making an informed choice?

 

Many thanks

Same internals, cheaper and I think more flexible, I've tried both.

I got my mum this same model for Christmas. I’ve had a bit of a play with it and it seems pretty decent. Having had it for a few weeks she’s very happy with it. It’s obviously a world apart from a proper manual set up but it makes a tasty cup and is very easy to use, refill and clean. The most stark difference to a manual set up is how coarse the grind is. The app is a bit rubbish but just about work. The customisation is a really good feature. One thing that really struck me was the drinks come out at a proper temperature, where as most B2C reviews talk about them being on the cold side, you can also adjust this.

For some reason I can't get your link to show anything except a blank page.

 

Link had a preface that seems incorrect it's: https://coffeeequipmentreviews.wordpress.com/ - it must be the melitta from that page.

Thanks to all for taking the time to respond. DavecUK your review and videos are most helpful.

 

On the Melitta website one of the main differences between the Barista TS and T models and the rest is the feature called IntenseAroma.

Does anyone know if this is a significant feature producing better flavoured coffee?

It's a slower extraction with a longer pre infusion and less flow.

 

It can give a lot more flavour than other bean to cup machines or it could just make your espresso extra bitter. Definitely a useful feature to have.
