Why The Philips Fully Automatic Espresso Machine With LatteGo – 3200 Series?
The Philips 3200 fully automatic espresso machine with LatteGo has much to prove. That first sip will transform you. To have a quality cup of coffee available at just one touch of a button is a revelation.
The Philips Fully Automatic Espresso Machine Design
It’s an excellent, sleek design with a relatively small footprint, making it great for a designated coffee area. The fit and finish are top-notch.
Unpacking the machine
First off, Philips thought through how you get the machine out of the box and included a plastic ‘sling’ to pull on and lift the coffee machine out of the packaging. (A no-brainer!)
Setting up the machine was pretty simple. Once clean, the machine was ready to use. It is also good to know that each machine is tested before leaving the factory.
The machine also comes with ‘aqua clean’ technology, a filter placed in the water jug, and you need to run this cycle before brewing your first cup.
The water tank slides out quickly. Also, the water drip tray and grounds catcher slide out without any issue.
The motion of the adjustable dispensing spout is both pleasing and incredibly useful. It makes switching mug sizes easy.
What Can You Brew With The Philips Fully Automatic Espresso Machine With LatteGo?
The 3200 touts five different drinks at the touch of a button, and they aren’t wrong. Very straightforward!
With the coffee modes, you can choose strength, temperature, the coarseness of the grind, and the amount of coffee in the cup.
You can choose between pre-ground coffee or placing beans in the hopper on top and grinding your own. The hopper holds a whole 12oz bag of beans and has 12 grind options via a black knob inside the grinder hopper.
Coffee Choices Are:
- Latte Macchiato,
- and Hot Water.
The first three allow you to change the quantity of coffee made by pressing the button a second time. The machine heats the water and milk quickly.
The frother makes fantastic frothed milk every time. It never scorched or burned it and made the exact quantity required at the press of a button.
You can easily store the frother container in the refrigerator, full of milk, ready for subsequent use. The frother also works well if you leave it attached to the machine and make a second cup of coffee, say 30 mins later, without any clogging or issues. One of the best features of the frother is cleaning it!
Cleaning The Philips Fully Automatic Espresso Machine With LatteGo
The whole ‘engine’ of the unit comes out to be cleaned. When putting it back in after cleaning, none of the settings would work. We took it apart again and found out (after digging through the instructions) that it needed to have the lubricant (supplied with the instructions) re-applied to it. Once we did that, the unit ran flawlessly again.
It’s an absolute breeze to clean. So simple! It has a groove pressed against a silicone diaphragm. It is genius!
You must remember to clean the drip tray frequently and empty the grounds regularly. A little red nub pops out of the tray to alert you when it’s full. The tray is easy to remove, clean, and replace.
When the machine automatically turns off, it does a cleaning cycle as well, meaning that the next time you turn it on, it’s ready to go, ready for your next great cup of coffee.
