Every automatic coffee machine has a grinder, and it tends to be very noisy. But the Siemens EQ.6 proves that you can easily make your own morning coffee without waking up the whole house. The machine has excellent sound insulation, starting from the body itself and ending with the bean tank. While they turn into powder, you can calmly talk without raising your voice.
The display of the machine is perfectly intuitive: the recipe icons are large enough and different in color, and the button functions are easy to recognize. Even if you forget where the instruction manual is, you can start a cleaning program or modify and save twelve of your favorite recipes thanks to the machine’s step-by-step guide.
Convenient milk frother
The equipment of the car is very well thought out. The tank holds up to 300 grams of grains, and manual cleaning is no more difficult than typical machines. We particularly liked the milk frother: the movable hose ends in a hard plastic tube. However, it is long enough to reach the bottom of most packs, so you don’t even have to refill the milk. For cleaning, simply insert the tube into the machine tray: minimum effort, it can only be easier when you do not use the cappuccinatore at all.
But the additional options (not least the soundproofing) come at a price, of course: the Siemens EQ.6 is very bulky. And in the kitchen, it will require quite a lot of space: as much as 25 cm (along the front edge) and 44 cm deep.
What kind of coffee does Siemens EQ.6 brew?
Coffee brewed in EQ.6 can be summed up in one word: “regular”. The machine does not spoil the taste, taking it into acidity or bitterness, but it does not give out anything special. I would like a greater variety of recipes and degrees of grinding. As in testing other coffee machines, we turned to our editorial colleagues to find out their impressions, but no one commented much on the taste of the drink. But at least the coffee from the EQ.6 will not disappoint you.
Should I buy a Siemens EQ.6 plus s300 coffee machine?
Of all its characteristics in Siemens EQ.6 plus s300 TE653501DE, we were most surprised by the good noise isolation of the coffee grinder, thanks to which the coffee machine is quieter than its competitors. However, you will have to allocate quite a lot of space in the kitchen for the device. In general, this is a good semi-professional device that is suitable for an office or a large family.
