The Electrolux A Modo Mio, Like Your Own Live-In Barista

The Electrolux A Modo Mio, Like Your Own Live-In Barista

For many, coffee is a ritual that they would rather not than tamper with. There are set rules not to be messed with: what coffee to drink, where to get it and when to drink it. The Electrolux A Modo Mio Barista will make you want to break all these rules and break up with your local barista.

The most important thing for a coffee connoisseur is the flavour of the coffee and, even though espresso aficionados might scoff at the fact that the A Modo Mio is a capsule machine, it definitely doesn’t disappoint in the taste department. The coffee is the real deal: piping hot and full of rich flavour. Lavazza have created eight delicious capsule blends for the A Modo Mio that range from strong, dark and full-bodied to smooth and balanced.

On to the functionality, there’s an integrated “plug & play” milk frother that gives you hot and cold options for a satisfying, creamy froth. The buttons are clearly labelled so you’re not left standing there scratching your head figuring out funny symbols. Have a penchant for making coffee with the lights off? One fun feature is the cup illumination, which lights up so well you could make coffee in the dark.

Design-wise, it also doesn’t hurt that the Electrolux A Modo Mio is easy on the eye and super quick. The machine is compact enough that it’ll seamlessly fit into your kitchen. You’ll have your caffeine hit in an instant and you can pretty much start making café-quality coffee with it right out of the box. With simple, minimal settings (espresso, cappuccino or latte), this is the machine for those who like their coffee straight to the point.

When it comes to the less fun part of the whole process of making your own coffee – cleaning the machine – it’s relatively easy with the A Modo Mio Barista. There are few parts to the machine and these require not much more than a quick rinse out or just pop them in the dishwasher.

All in all, the Electrolux A Modo Mio is like your own live-in barista: attractive, straightforward and offering delightful coffee.
