The WMF Presto is a fully automatic, bean to cup coffee machine, which is ideal for the home or small business as it has a very small footprint. It makes fantastic drinks as you can see from the photos. The extraction time for a large espresso is a very nice 22 seconds at 30ml with crema.
It makes great Americanos and milky drinks (helped vastly by pre-infusion) a delicious hot chocolate or even both - Mocha! I highly recommend Luna Chocolate Powder. Use good quality beans too! All drinks can be fully adjusted from water time, milk time, quality of froth, coffee throw amount, chocolate powder amount etc, etc, etc. I have taken very good care of it, and always put it through a milk/chocolate/coffee cleaning cycle every time I used it.It has a brand new fresh water tank and lid, front left fascia cover, plus milk and chocolate pipes with restrictors - never been used. I've tested all the valves, motors and elements individually via programming and of course making drinks and all works well. Anyone who knows the WMF brand knows all the parts are of quality. I've included an instruction manual and a hopper/grinder adjustment tool. I've also included a length of John Guest water pipe and waste pipe plus fittings in case you wanted to plumb it into the mains and/or have the waste pipe into a stand pipe. (It's set up so the removable drip tray is closed and the water feed is from the tank).
There's also a brand new unopened water tank softner if you live in a hard water area and a tub of cleaning tablets. There's a USB port on the underside behind the front left panel that you can plug a cable into and run that into a laptop with the WMF software to change settings that way but I never got round to it.I just adjusted the recipes etc via the display on the coffee machine. The access code for the extra settings in the menu - Press MENU, select the SPANNER icon, enter the 5 digit code according to that day's date (for example - if the date was 13/04/2018, you'd enter the date backwards missing out the 201 - 84031). The extra hidden icon will now appear at the top middle row.
One of the settings I especially like is the On/Off Timer which is perfect for a morning brew. Just fill the bean and chocolate hoppers, fill the tank with fresh water, plug it in and enjoy! It is in a very good and clean condition. The only defects are the black fascia sticker is ripped from the back bottom corner and a very faint mark on the right casing, both are cosmetic and can be seen from the photos attached.
