I have a brand new niece today. I tiny, baby girl who I’ll get to love and spoil and host tea parties with for the rest of my life. I am completely ecstatic. Being a first-time-aunt, all I can see are those rosy cheeks and sweet head of hair…even her crying would just be something else to love. Being a first-time-parent, however, is a very different experience.
You hear lots of stories about those first few months at home with a new baby. A combination of anxiety, uncertainty, and the complete absence of a REM cycle leads to an existence resembling that of a zombie horror film. What can you do for these helpless, sleep deprived, parental newbies? Offer to babysit or bring them a latte.
The Miele CM5000 Coffee System is a fantastic addition to any kitchen. Just as a baker would own a standing blender or a chef would own a good set of knives, every coffee enthusiast deserves a quality, whole bean system to prepare their favorite drink.
And we do mean all your favorite drinks. The Miele CM5000 can make coffees, espressos, lattes, macchiatos, or cappuccinos. It’s like having your favorite barista every morning at your kitchen counter!
Let’s Do The Math: If you order a $4.00 latte from the local coffee shop four times a week for a year, that’s $832.00 annually! And let’s be honest, you’re stopping more often than four times a week and sometimes buying a snack, too. And what about your spouse? How much are they spending? Your household coffee tab could be closer to $1,500 a year! When you run the numbers, it just makes sense to cut the middle-man and start brewing gourmet, designer coffee drinks at home.

|The Miele CM5000 Coffee System has an intuitive interface that uses a 2 line LED display. Using simple prompts, the user interacts with the machine and makes their selections.

Featuring 4 programmable cup sizes; espresso, double espresso, coffee, and double coffee, you’ll be able to make coffee exactly the way you want it.|
|The key to making designer drinks is properly steamed milk. Once selecting the steam button from the control panel, open the CM 5000 manual steam/hot water valve and begin to froth milk for cappuccino’s, latte’s and much more.This same valve can be used to heat water for specialty teas. The machine is both exceptionally quiet and includes an energy saving Eco-mode to save energy. The system includes automatic prompts to do guide you such as prompts to empty the waste container and drip tray and to replenish coffee beans or water.|
|The height-adjustable dispensing spout accommodates an array of cup sizes, from the classic petite espresso cup to various American mug sizes. The machine has two spouts so you can make two portions of coffee at the same time. The removable water tank makes it easy to re-fill the machine with water. The machine will hold 9.1 ounces of beans and 61 fluid ounces of water, the same as a 10-cup coffee machine. The selectable grind feature allows you to choose the fineness of the ground coffee. You can also choose the amount of coffee ground each time, giving you two controls to vary the strength of the coffee.|
|Of course you can make coffee from the beans of your choice but one outstanding feature is that the traditional, fresh grind and brew process can easily be bypassed by opening the top of the coffee system and pouring ground coffee into the designated chamber. This coffee bypass chute makes the system more versatile since you can choose to make a decaf coffee or another selected coffee of your choice whenever you want no matter what types of beans you have loaded in the coffee bean chamber. When you have guests, you can serve a variety of coffee choices and simply load the bypass chamber with each guests selection.|
Steel Milk Flask
|Miele’s insulated milk flask, made of double-walled stainless steel keeps milk cool for up to 12 hours without any loss of quality, and guarantees uniformly perfect steamed milk for cappuccino, latte or macchiato. The flask connects directly to the steam valve so you can make the perfect frothy milk for your favorite beverages. In order to allow the flavor of the coffee to develop and be retained, the cups should be preheated. The smaller the volume of coffee/espresso and the thicker the cup, the more important it is to preheat the cup. This cup preheat feature is built into the coffee maker.|
|The brew unit is easily removed and cleaned. With direct access via the service door, simply remove the brew unit from the coffee system, then rinse under running water to keep your system clean and prevent build-up. The following accessories come with the system; a measuring spoon, cleaning tablets to clean and degrease the brew unit, descaling tablets for descaling the water pipework, test strips to determine the hardness of the water and a milk flask (see below) for storing and preparing milk.|
