1 month in - home barista heaven

Only reason for the 4 stars (and not 5) was advised that the machine was a double boiler when in store. However discovered that we cant brew coffee and steam milk at the same time.

Even though the price point is high, we knew we were getting a manual machine with some automated abilities and not a completely automatic machine, thus our expectations have been more than met with this.
The smart tamping takes some getting used to as well as adjusting the temp, grind setting and levels between beans. However we have managed to go through 4 ish kgs in the 5 weeks with minimal wastage.

Manual steamer does the milk well as does the auto milk device.

Temperature and consistency of coffee is reasonably consistent.

Purchased in April 2021 at The Good Guys for $1,750.00.

Hi Straps, thank you for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate it. We thank you for your feedback and will be more mindful in advertising and teaching of retailer staff. But we are glad you are loving your machine :)

Love it, but

Have had my Maestro for 2 months and love using it. It’s everything I love in a machine. Finding that my coffee (tried all my proven blends) is more bitter than with previous machines and can’t seem to reduce the bitterness.

Purchased in November 2020 at Myer for $1,900.00.

Is it normal for a new machine to have coffee grinds on it and smell strong of coffee in the grinder?

Yes straight from the box I brought it today opened it and it has grinds near the tamp and the grinder smells like coffee

Take it back and ask for a new machine as paid for, not a 2nd hand one as received. Unacceptable on every level from any retailer.

Hi Renny, for this particular machine, yes the cappuccinos are hot. Since this is a manual machine you can heat up the milk with the steam wand to however hot you would like.
The best places to look around for the best price would be at https://delonghicoffeemachines.com.au/ and this will also tell you which stores near you are selling the Maestro :)
