This is one for the coffee lover and style addict in us all!  Smeg has just released its first ever retro style coffee machine – and it’s a winner!

Showcasing its iconic 50s styling in a choice of four colours, Smeg’s ECF01 manual espresso coffee machine will certainly appeal to all the coffee purists, and the smarts under its beautiful housing are sure to keep the techno lovers very happy!

A thermoblock heating system delivers a fast service while its 15 bar pressure ensures an excellent coffee experience.  The user-friendly control gives options of one or two cups and steam plus personalised settings for coffee temperature (low, medium, high), water hardness (soft, medium, high) and automatic shut off time (9 min, 30 min, 3 hours).

One of the standout features of this new coffee machine, with its conveniently slim dimensions, is the ability for coffee lovers to make the exact coffee of their choice.  It has been designed to take both coffee grounds and pre-filled paper pods – thankfully the plastic pods have been eliminated in favour of minimising landfill!

Other benefits of the Smeg appliance include an anti-drip system (with an indicator alerting when the drip tray is full), a warning light when de-scaling is required and the ability to fill both cups and taller mugs.

The adjustable frothing wand will create a perfect rich, thick foam for cappuccino, and a super-smart feature will ensure you get your favourite coffee every time: by holding down the coffee button until the cup has been filled to the desired level, the ECF01 will store the knowledge and produce exactly the same amount of coffee the next time – unless you tell it otherwise!

The Smeg ECF01 50s style coffee machine is available nationally – in black, cream, pastel blue and red – from David Jones, Myer and Harvey Norman stores.  It retails for $499.
