As most of you know, I am a Panasonic Brit Blogger, whoo hoo!

My thoughts: 
I am a lover of coffee, funny thing is this wasn’t always the case. I would hate the smell and the taste so much growing up until I started working in a cinema which had a bar and one of my best friends till this day who I met at the job introduced me to coffee from a beautiful old school espresso coffee – Fell in love since then.

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.

I have to admit, I needed the manual – the machine was bloody expensive and there was noway I wanted to mess it up!

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.

After I got through the basics and figured out which settings suited me best It was so easy to set the timer so my coffee was waiting for me at 8am every morning and it even has a light for in the night or early hours if you don’t want to switch the main light on.

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.

The price tag is pretty hefty for your everyday person but its a fregging awesome machine which I’m pretty sure will last with you for a really LONG time.
