Smeg Retro Style Coffee Maker Machine, 17.3 x 12.8 x 11.3, Cream
The SMEG Company was founded in Italy by the Bertazzoni family in 1948 and is still operated by them to this day. From their humble beginnings as a family of blacksmiths, the Bertazzoni family has grown through the last 70 years, expanding their once modest family business into a worldwide home appliance company known for their signature design of retro –style appliances. With the help of some internationally renowned architects and state-of-the-art technology, the SMEG line brings the stylish aesthetic of the 50’s to your home, but with the added bonus of modern technology, uniting the past with the present in a way that’s never been done before!
The SMEG DCF02 drip coffee machine is the latest innovation in their unique brand of home appliances. This machine comes complete with an array of functions and features aiming to satisfy a wide variety of consumers and coffee drinkers. It also includes some useful upgrades from the original model, DCF01. One of the biggest upgrades this new model features is the extended “Keep Warm” time function, which now keeps your coffee warm for up to an hour after brewing, which is a significant upgrade from the previous model that was only able to keep warm for 20 minutes. In addition to that, this newer model also has the option to turn any of the sounds on or off, we’ve improved the ease for opening the lid, and the clock can now be switched from a 12 to 24 hour clock, based on user preference.
Aside from these new features, the DCF02 still carries with it all of the customizable functions of the previous model such as the unique “Aroma Intensity,” option which allows the user to cater to their own personal preference of coffee scents, varying between light and intense and also the adjustable water hardness option to allow the user to adjust the taste based on their palate, both of which create a very personal feel. The DCF02, just like its predecessor, comes equipped with an auto-start mode so that your coffee can be ready and waiting for you before you head off to work in the morning, a de-scaling alarm light indicator to help you keep your machine clean and working properly, and a nifty 4-cup brewing option to save you from wasting time and coffee when you don’t need a full 10 cups.
Even though the look of this machine resembles something out of the 50’s, the DCF02 has all the staples and functions that you could want and expect from a modern coffee maker such as a digital LED display and clock with a simple, user friendly control panel, a reusable coffee filter, a tank water level indicator, an anti-drip system to keep your coffee in the pot and not on your counter, and lastly anti-slip feet to keep your machine from walking across your counter tops.

Advantages of using a superautomatic coffee maker over a capsule or Italian coffee maker
Super-automatic coffee machines have several advantages over capsule and Italian coffee machines:
Greater Versatility: Super-automatic coffeemakers allow you to prepare a variety of coffee drinks, such as espresso, cappuccinos, and lattes, with the push of a button. On the other hand, capsule coffee machines can only prepare the type of coffee that is in the capsule, and Italian ones can only prepare espresso and its variants.
1.-Greater control over the quality of the coffee: When preparing coffee with a super-automatic coffee maker, you can adjust the coffee grind, the amount of coffee used and the water pressure to obtain the desired flavor. On the other hand, capsule and Italian coffee machines have fewer adjustment options and do not allow as much control over the quality of the coffee.
2.-Less waste: When using a super-automatic coffee maker, less waste is produced than with capsule coffee machines since single-use capsules are not used.
3.-Greater comfort: A super-automatic coffee maker can prepare several cups of coffee without the need for intervention, while Italian ones require more user intervention, especially in cleaning and maintenance.
4.-Greater comfort: A super-automatic coffee maker can prepare several cups of coffee without the need for intervention, while Italian ones require more user intervention, especially in cleaning and maintenance.
5.-Greater capacity: Super-automatic coffee machines usually have a greater capacity for ground coffee and water, which allows you to prepare several cups of coffee without having to refill the coffee or water so frequently.
However, it is important to note that super-automatic coffee machines are usually more expensive and require more maintenance and cleaning than capsule or Italian coffee machines.
