Rated 5 out of 5 by from Model CTL636ES6 - good with minor annoying thingsWe bought it over a year ago when we had our new kitchen fitted... Finally I can give an honest review... It lasted 1.5 year and is still going 5 - 8 cups of coffee per day + Milk froth for our kids :) Overall it is a lovely machine but I need to add few comments: 1. Ours is a direct import from Germany as the prices in UK were ridicules back then and they did not stock CTL636ES6 model which have Home Connect built in. I can see it in-stock now in UK so just make sure you are buying the newer model... Bosch website is still showing ES1 version which is light years behind the current model - Bosch please address it! 2. I like the idea of home connect but remote start have no sense in it! The coffee machine is cleaning itself every time it turns on or off ! This is seriously annoying as I wanted to leave an empty cup in it overnight and make myself a coffee from my phone while still in bed. I can't find any option to disable it on an ad-hock basis. As a software developer I even analysed the home connect SDK and there is no such option in the API! So I cannot program it myself :( 3. It would be good to have an option to connect it directly to water supply as the water tank system doesn't analyse how much water is left in the tank and if the level is too low you might end up with half a cup (waste of coffee beans) - it does notify you when there is less than 100ml of water).. 4. The milk container (it is basically a little thermos) is useless ( or maybe I am) as I am usually forgetting about it and after few hours I need to clean the milk system and put the remaining milk into the sink. When eventually I did remember to put the container into the fridge, as per user manual, the milk milk was going off after few hours anyway, so I am not sure what I am doing wrong... My DIY solution is a little cup of milk with exact amount of milk inserted instead of the milk container for the lovely Latte Macchiato I am big fun of , so no milk is wasted at the end... Anyway it is a lovely machine and I am pretty sure that they are missing me at my local Costa where I used to spend a lot of time and money ... :) If you decide to buy it buy also a cleaning and descaling tablets they are really important .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PerfectI bought this coffee machine to replace a 5 year old De Detrich which had given me nothing but trouble. This is a far better machine and so far so good! Happy days
