Lavazza Coffee Machine Review*

The easiest way to Italy

Every morning deserves an excellent authentic Italian coffee. Actually so does every lunchbreak, evening, weekend. But getting that authentic Italian coffee experience at home has been difficult. Thanks to the Lavazza 'A Modo Mio' system by Electrolux - that is no longer an obstacle.

Design & Installation
The Lavazza A Modo Mio Premium Mio capsule coffee machine is slick and beautiful. It’s small enough to be neatly tucked away but also beautiful enough to be the centerpiece in the kitchen. There is little set up required – essentially just removing the packaging, filling the water jug and plugging the machine is enough to get you started. The instructions are included but are not needed.

The best products are those which you can use simply and effortlessly. The Lavazza A Modo Mio capsule coffee machine is one of those products. By turning the machine on, two LED lights illuminate where the cup should sit with the machine button lights flashing. Once the button lights have stopped flashing, it’s simply a matter of putting the capsule in the machine and pressing the cup button on the top left hand side of the machine. You can choose to have the coffee served as ristretto (short) or long.

The Lavazza capsules are true to their flavour, with the tasting notes identifiable as per their trademark taste. There is a large selection of pods to try with different flavours and strength. The machine comes with a sample box – from the strongest (a high percentage of Arabica) to the decaf blend. The pods are reasonably priced around $12 – $13 mark per pack of 16 capsules. If you’re in the market to have a real strong coffee with fantastic consistency, this machine is for you.

The Lavazza A Modo Mio Premium Mio capsule coffee machine I was provided with retails at $199.99. This model came with a separate milk frother. If black coffee is your drink of choice, you can save yourself a few dollars by buying the model without the frother (retailing at $99.90). 

My top three flavour recommendations

A Modo Mio Favola is compact in size and comes in a variety of colours. All models are equipped with a steam/hot water spout to be able to prepare a cappuccino or latte macchiato.

There is a wide range of capsules for every taste. A Modo Mio comes in eight carefully selected coffee blends, from the delicately Dolcemente to the intensive and full-bodied Divinamente. A Modo Mio  machines and capsules are available in select stores and from the Lavazza A Modo Mio homepage.
