A compact coffee machine with a sleek, ergonomic body that is designed to occupy minimal space. The coffee maker features a clean and simple interface and makes for an ideal appliance for those on the lookout for an uncomplicated espresso maker. The 0.6 liter water tank capacity of the Philips HD7450 translates to 4-6 cups of espresso. The coffie maker features a high funnel type filter that allows for even distribution of the coffee powder. This ensures optimal contact between the powder and water, thereby lending a full-bodied flavor and aroma to your coffee. The thermostat controlled hotplate in the machine can keep the decoction warm for extended periods. This is a useful feature for late afternoon lethargy where you desperately crave for an espresso, but too lazy to actually go brew a fresh cup.
