    How we test

    Overall score includes:

    Taste (60%): We assessed crema colour and thickness as well as the coffee's aroma, flavour, mouth-feel and aftertaste.
    Ease of use (20%): Based on convenience of water container and filter, controls, exterior cleaning and operating the unit.
    Milk frothing (15%): Evaluated froth quality and ease of using the frothing mechanism.
    Temperature consistency (5%): Assessed consistency of temperature across four cups of coffee.

    Machines without milk frothing have been scored appropriately so their performance is comparable to other models tested.
