"Morphy Richards 47076 Coffee Machine....."

We had been talking in our household for sometime about getting a coffee machine in our household. I must admit that I am not a big coffee drinker and do love my cups of tea but when having friends around rather than going to the jar of instant that sits in the cupboard we thought it would be nice to have a machine, we even worked out where a new appliance would go in our kitchen. My other half did the research for the coffee machine, being the coffee drinker in the house and he decided on the one that he wanted and we ended up with the Morphy Richards 47076 Coffee Maker and here are my thoughts on the project.

We set about by having a rough budget of paying no more than £50.00 for the coffee machine and this model cost us a total of £39.99 so at least it was within the price scale we had set and also met all of the specifications that we wanted. We made the purchase from the Amazon website, we do a lot of buying from the store and I had no worries about placing the idea with them. We had however spotted the coffee machine in Comet and so we were able to have a look at it before we made the purchase from Amazon. Amazon was a couple of pound cheaper as well.

The coffee machine arrived and it was in a well packaged box. Upon opening I saw that there was a detailed instruction manual as well as a one year manufacturer’s guarantee. What I liked was that there was a detailed booklet on getting started with some diagrams. I have never used a machine before, well years ago when you had to use filter papers. There is basically the coffee machine and then the wires that need to be plugged in to give the device power.

The coffee machine consists of chrome and black design as well as the jug which is clear so you can see the coffee brewing away. The coffee machine has a sleek look and sits well in the kitchen. There is a large dial on the front of the machine as well as the Morphy Richards name; this is discreetly placed at the top.

The main advertising for this product is that it claims to make 12 cups of coffee in 10 minutes, not bad! There is a thermostatic plate that the jug sits on and a heat resistant carafe. I thought that the coffee machine looked fairly easy to use and in all honesty it was. There is a side flap for the water to be added, clear water level measurements are on the side as well as there being a measure on the jug. There is just the addition of the coffee that needs to be added then. The coffee that we brought was just standard filter coffee and there was a scoop that came with the machine that allows you to add the coffee in. All that you really need to do then is switch the coffee machine on and you are ready to go.

The coffee machine is quite quick and you hear it gurgling away whilst it makes the drink. There is also the lovely scent that fills the house when making this drink. All that was left was to taste the drink. I had a coffee, even though it is not my preferred drink and I have to say that I wish the drink was a little bit warmer. For me the coffee should be piping hot and in this it just wasn’t piping. My other half said he didn’t really notice it but when I gave my Mum a coffee she also said she would like to see her drink a little bit warmer.

The coffee machine is easy to clean, the jug just needs a rinse and there is no messing around with the filter paper like I used to remember so it is a really quick processes.

In summary, I have to say the temperature issues did leave us a little disappointed, we do use the coffee machine on a regular basis and for most it is fine, its just a little annoying that I have to explain this and offer to warm a drink up in the microwave!

3 out of 5 from me on this one

Thank you for reading

    It might be prudent to point out that this machine is a filter coffee maker and not an espresso machine. A handy review but the bit about wires being plugged in has me worried - does it just have a detachable cord with a plug on the end or something more complicated? Also, is there a mesh filter at the top that can obviously be re-washed after use? What about the main carafe - the coffee jug - can it be put in a dishwasher, is it glass or a mix with metal so it can't be put in a microwave for reheating?

    We find that with most coffee filter machines, the jug has to be left about ten minutes after making, before pouring, so that the temperature gets a bit hotter.
