Within seconds the fully automatic espresso machine CM 250 is ready and waiting to provide a whole range of gourmet coffee specialities, including espresso, latte macchiato and cappuccino at the touch of a button. A useful new feature is the personalisation function, which enables you to programme and save up to six individual beverages. Information such as beverage type, cup size, coffee strength and brewing temperature can be adjusted, and there is a hot water dispenser for the convenient preparation of tea or other beverages. Seven different lighting scenarios can be selected according to your mood and preference and add an intriguing new dimension to coffee making.
Another new feature is the grinding unit with high-quality, durable ceramic discs that grind fresh coffee beans to the required degree of fineness with a minimum of noise. The aroma brewing technology presses the coffee powder together and whirls it during the brewing process so that all aromas can develop freely. An integrated milk container facilitates the preparation of milk-mix drinks. The insulated outer wall has a capacity of 0.7 litres and can keep milk fresh for hours.
Like the ovens and Combi-steam ovens of the 200 series, the fully automatic espresso machine is available in a choice of stainless steel-backed, aluminium-backed or anthracite glass frontage. Both the large display and the control knobs match the design of the 200 series ovens. A large number of aesthetically pleasing configurations are possible: in combination with a warming drawer, in a trio with an oven and a warming drawer or in a side-by-side combination with other 45-cm high appliances such as the Combi-steam oven or Combi-microwave oven. www.gaggenau.com
