built-in coffee maker / Smeg BUILT-IN BLACK COFFEE MAKER / / The Smeg CMSC45NE built-in compact coffee machine is completely automatic, very simple to use and is perfect for preparing delicious coffee and cappuccino, just like the hot drinks that you would enjoy in a coffee shop, yet from the comfort of your own home. The CMSC45NE from Smeg has an LCD display that clearly and intuitively supplies multilingual information. Coffee can be prepared using either beans or ground coffee and it is possible to prepare one or two cups at the same time. With the steam function built-in the Smeg CMSC45NE Coffee Maker, milk or cappuccino can be prepared with a generous topping of foam, and there is a hot water function for tea and other hot drinks. The useful rinsing function added to the Smeg CMSC45NE can be employed to clean the machine after use or to heat the cups before pouring a coffee, a technique used by connoisseurs to exalt the aroma and taste of the coffee. The Smeg CMSC45NE coffee machine is extremely versatile, allowing you to prepare different strength coffees (from extra-mild, to mild, medium, strong, or extra-strong) and quantities (from espresso, to medium and long). Even the temperature of the coffee can be regulated on three different levels so that you can customise it completely to your personal tastes. The CMSC45NE automatically carries out a rinsing and a descaling operation every time it is switched on or off. It can be easily programmed to switch itself on - meaning that the machine will be ready, for example, in the morning for you to immediately prepare a fresh coffee as soon as you get up, whilst the stand-by function allows you to save energy. The CMSC45NE Coffee Maker includes a removable 1.8 litre water container, a 200g capacity container for coffee beans, a separate compartment for ground coffee and a drawer for the grinds (used coffee). The CMSC45NE also has two lights, telescopic guide rails for ergonomic access to the coffee container and can be adjusted for different height cups.
