Must read

TURIN, Italy – Designed by Matteo Bazzicalupo and Raffaella Mangiarotti of deepdesign, SMEG A Modo Mio Lavazza is a coffee machine with an unmistakable 1950s aesthetic and design with rounded lines and prominent SMEG and Lavazza branding across the front.

The outer is made of plastic, as is the removable drip tray, and the overall footprint sits large but comfortably on the countertop.

This unique collaboration between two well-known Italian brands delivers iconic design and advanced technologies combined with the excellence and tradition of the world of coffee.

The pod load and releases the lever lift vertically. It only adds about 15cm extra in height but could be tricky under very low cupboards. However, it has a lovely soft lift and a lower mechanism that makes loading the pod an enjoyable part of the process.

The drip tray really is only for espresso cups.

Any standard-sized cup needs the drip tray removed and that leaves nothing to catch the drips if you remove the cup. This can prove frustrating for lungo drinkers.

Compatible with Lavazza’s eco pods and containing its A Modo Mio brew technology, both the espresso and lungo drinks produced were packed with flavour without any bitterness and topped with a hazelnut swirl of crema.

This is in part thanks to the tampered grounds within the pods, unlike others which contain loose grinds. The espresso is noticeably hot.

The product is available in 3 different colors. Choose your favorite and enjoy barista-quality espresso from the comfort of your home, whenever you wish.

From Lavazza’s experience and passion for coffee, A Modo Mio comes to life: a system made of blends, single-origin selections and machines suitable for every need.

If this new Smeg A Modo Mio Lavazza pod coffee machine doesn’t sway you in the direction of the capsule coffee arena then nothing will.

It is quite simply the most elegant-looking pod machine on the shelves and a cracking espresso maker it is, to boot.
