Near perfect pod-type coffee machine
This is our second Creatista purchase, after buying the Plus for a holiday rental - this one is for our personal use. The key factor for purchasing the Pro instead of the Plus was the touch screen, which is simpler and easier to use than the Plus unit's select-and-click dial. But having used both, the dual boiler does make every flat white quicker and easier, since it does both the coffee and milk simultaneously.
This machine has displaced my old faithful Sunbeam 6910 (also a dual boiler) and a flat-burr grinder, freeing up quite a bit of s...pace on the kitchen sideboard. There's no doubt that the traditional cafe-style machine offers more control and flexibility over the coffee produced, but I'm not really missing it so far - I do tend to use 2 pods for each brew, as I'd generally do a double-shot in the Sunbeam. The coffee is very consistent, since the entire process is automated - and both temperature and duration of coffee extraction can be customised. I haven't needed to use the optional personalised recipe settings as yet. I've noted a concern on my review for the Creatista Plus that so many others have had reliability issues with that very similar machine - both these reviews (Plus and Pro) are only a month into ownership, and I'll update it if anything busts loose.
Purchased in January 2021 for $1,000.00.
