"The Lavazza A Modo Mio Premium coffee machine was manufactured in cooperation with Italian coffee machine manufacturer Saeco and offers very good espresso and cappuccino"
A slightly more up-market version of the Lavazza A Modo Mio Extra, the Lavazza A Modo Mio Premium coffee machine offers an extra steam arm for milk frothing and the ability of customising and saving the amount of coffee in your cup.
Outwardly, this coffee machine is similar to the A Modo Mio Extra – the round and compact shapes, the smooth feel of the handles, the stylish combination of black and silver all have remained (although the Lavazza A Modo Mio Premium features a black strip down the front, as opposed to a silver one). It is, however, slightly thinner and has a larger water tank.
The Lavazza A Modo Mio Premium coffee machine was manufactured in cooperation with Italian coffee machine manufacturer Saeco, and offers great functionality and very good espresso and cappuccino. The way it does this is by imitating the highly pressurised brewing process of professional machines and relying on Lavazza’s own coffee capsules.
This means that if you have a different favourite brand, you’ll have to settle for an alternative – but since the Lavazza A Modo Mio Premium comes with about 30 coffee pods of different flavours, there’s a high chance you will discover a new, similarly tasty option.
To avoid below-temperature espresso, you might have to let the hot water run a few moments before you brew the coffee, which, if you’re in a hurry, might not be ideal. But, as mentioned before, the Lavazza coffee is so good that this is a negligible flaw.
With the Pannarello steam arm you have the option to go for a cappuccino or a latte instead of that instant hit of espresso, and there’s also a hot water function if you’re in the mood for a tea.
Is the Lavazza A Modo Mio Premium worth paying those extra pounds? Probably not – despite holding more water and looking a tad slicker. The main functions and features (such as water pressure, wattage and the electronically controlled temperature control) are the same. But if you want a new coffee machine, you might as well plump for Lavazza’s newest model – it comes with a 2-year warranty, after all.
