Zanussi's built-in coffee maker


Kitchens were once such simple places; a cooker, a sink and a fridge. What else did you need? Well, following on from the flip down TV, you can now fit an integrated coffee maker into your ever-shrinking space.

Zanussi’s ZCOF636 certainly looks the part with its modern brushed steel finish, it has a hot water dispenser for long coffee drinks or tea making and steam spout for frothy milk drinks, a built-in bean grinder and an accessory drawer for your cups and supplies underneath. And unusually for these machines, it can make two cups at a time. So no-one has to have the cold one.

If you desire an endless supply of espresso or cappuccino, it might appeal. But before you dash down to the kitchen showroom, ask yourself when was the last time you used your existing coffee machine? Exactly.

  • I was looking for information on this unit, but all the sites that seem to come up are from the UK. Are they offering this machine in the USA, OR is it stricty for Europe?

  • Actually, robotic coffee machines rock. I used to barely use my espresso maker, preferring drip coffee as the espresso process was a bind. Now I’ve a fully automatic one, it’s at least two cups a day – imagine if I’d spent all that money in a well-known high street coffee shop instead!
