Lavazza’s Retro Mio Modo Coffee Maker

Posted on 24 February 2010 by Chris Ford

We certainly don’t think coffee is dull and it seems that the good people over at Lavazza are in agreement if their new range of fabulously funky coffee makers are anything to go by.

Take your pick from traditional black or  add some brightness to your kitchen with one of these six bold limited edition colours.   It should make a tasty coffee too as it’s made by Seaco (who acquired Gaggia in 1999), who know a thing or two about making coffee, and uses pressed coffee capsules and cutting edge extraction technology to produce a full-bodied and creamy espresso.  It also boasts a steam arm for cappuccinos and lattes and a hot water function for the tea drinkers.

I hope to have some money left over at pay day to treat myself to one of these beauties which are a comparative steal at only £119 from the Lavazza site and if you’re quick they will throw in an exclusive gift set to make your Modo Mio complete which includes espresso cups, cappuccino cups, spoons and a sneak preview of two new blends.

    Hello Mr.Black, I would like to ask your advice or the advice of your reader’s about the following.
    I have recently become a fan of coffee after drinking ‘Caffe Espresso Arabica’ which is a lovely boost in the morning but at the moment I’m using a coffee percolator and although the taste is very good I am now interested in achieving a greater taste. I have been looking at a lot of different coffee maker’s and I must say that this page has been very useful to my search.
    I have come across 2 similar makers and both look very cool. One reason I like these is becuase they are easy to transport. I would like to know this pages opinion on these.
    “Handpresso” Mobile Espresso Machine
    “mypressi” TWIST

    Not sure if these links works

    Well John Im a bit of a Coffee nut and have several different machines at the moment, for everyday use at home I use a Nesspresso machine which you will find my review of on the site, its drawbacks are you have to use the pods from the nespresso website but its quick, clean and requires not messing about so wins for me most of the time and makes a fantastic espresso.

    If you are looking for something portable I would suggest the Aeropress here : http://tiny.cc/oz7c7 , I know lots of people that use them and speak very highly of them. The Handpresso I have considered before but to be honest is too much messing about for me but certainly looks cool.

    Cheers for that I’ll have a longer look at it but it does seem a bit bulky. Did you know that you can get reuseable pods for your machine, therefore you can use any type of coffee

  4. Mr Black Says:

    Indeed I do John but Ive had less than favourable results with the re-usable pods, I will stick a review of them up and tell all shortly!
