IMPRESSA C9 Automatic Coffee Machine, Black
With an exceptionally compact design and user-friendly front-panel controls, this automatic coffee-and-espresso center creates cafe-quality coffee drinks without ever having to move the cup. Simply push a preprogrammed beverage button for one or two coffees, one or two espressos, cappuccino, milk, or hot water. The countertop appliance comes equipped with an insulated 14-ounce thermal stainless-steel milk container, which stays right next to the machine and keeps cold milk cold for up to eight hours. The machine will steam and froth the milk grind, tamp, and high-pressure brew coffee or espresso then dispense automatically into the cup. Its commercial-grade conical burr grinder offers six fineness settings for any type of bean--from light to dark roasts, while a separate funnel for pre-ground coffee allows for making no-hassle decaf or flavored coffee drinks. The unit features an 18-bar power pump with a 1450-watt stainless-steel-lined ThermoBlock heating system, and its two-step pre-infusion cycle moistens and conditions ground coffee for maximum flavor extraction with perfect crema topping. For added convenience, the appliance offers easy-to-use programming functions. Choose from two temperature settings, three strength levels, and volume--one or two cups at a time, from 1 to a full 16 ounces. Turn the rotary dial to make changes during brewing without changing the programmed setting. Plus, the steam output can be set to a certain time for filling cup after cup with the exact same amount of hot steamed or frothed milk, which means no more wasted milk. Even more, selecting from "continuous-on" or "auto-off" from one half-hour to nine hours in one-hour increments makes it possible for the unit to turn on at the programmed time and ensures it stays on for as long as it's needed. A bright 10-digit LED display dialog system gives short, simple instructions like "ready"; "heating"; "fill water"; and "clean unit". Other useful details include a 64-ounce removable water tank, an 8-ounce bean container, a five-level water-hardness selector, an automatic hot-water rinse cycle that cleans and pre-heats all vital brewing parts, a height-adjustable coffee spout, and an electronic water-level sensor that makes sure the machine never operates without water. Moreover, its Clearyl water-care system removes chlorine, lead, aluminum, and copper for better-tasting coffee, and a special organic additive removes almost all calcium and eliminates decalcifying altogether. The unit also provides electronic sensors that indicate when water or coffee beans need to be added, an automatic cleaning cycle indicator, a "full" indicator for the used coffee container, seven language options in the dialog system, Energy Saving mode to reduce power consumption in stand-by mode, and a separate main power switch. Accessories include a Clearyl water filter, cleaning tablets, a measuring scoop, a water-hardness indicator strip, and a DVD with detailed tips on brewing, frothing methods, and cleaning. UL listed for household use, the coffee-and-espresso center measures 16 by 11 by 13-1/2 inches and carries a limited warranty for two years or 6,000 cups, whichever comes first.
