As most of you know, I am a Panasonic Brit Blogger, whoo hoo!
This consists of keeping up to date with the latest Panasonic products and relaying them back to you, testing the range of exciting goodies and hosting competitions. I was given the amazing opportunity to test out their Panasonic NC-ZA1 Espresso Coffee Machine Maker – I can’t express how much I love this machine, I think I love it as much as I love Coffee itself.
The Panasonic NC-ZA1 Espresso Coffee Maker is Panasonic’s first fully automatic ‘bean-to-cup’ coffee machine. It can be fully pesonalised to your taste from the amount milk to how strong you want your coffee.
So when Panasonic asked me to review one of their The Panasonic NC-ZA1 Espresso Coffee Maker I jumped to the chance. I was so excited when it arrived. Pretty heavy but nice and slim so it could fit perfectly on my kitchen counter top.
There was quite a lot to take in, I had to clean the machine, set up the milk pipe, adjust the settings so that its to my taste and liking- which was very daunting as I hadn’t got a clue what each setting meant. Not to mention I didn’t have any coffee beans or ground coffee Oops! I’m an instant coffee kinda gal … Well when you have a toddler and you’re extremely unorganised who has time for anything else. But after clarifying it with them I went out and got some Ground Coffee … NOTE: You will need either Coffee Beans or Ground Coffee – NOT instant coffee, it will clog up the machine and you will need to open it up and clean out the coffee container. The instant coffee is too smooth for the water to run though so it takes the coffee with it and clogs the filter. SUPER easy to clean though.
The only thing that bugged me about the machine was if you switched it off by the mains (which we do with ALL our electrical’s, ‘green footprint’) you would need to clean the machine each time you switch it back on. So it was a very tedious routine which took about 5 mins each time of changing the water and adding special formula. But at least you knew you wen’t drinking rotten milk so I guess it could be a pretty good thing as well.
