Bosch TCA4101UC Barino
Pump Espresso Machine

Waking up without coffee gives you a sleepy and dull feeling throughout the day. In a movie, renowned quotation spoken by the actor was “I don’t want anything better, I want Coffee” simply meaning that he drinks only coffee. Many persons are addicted to coffee and drink it compulsorily at specific times of the day. Making the popular brew is very easy with the help of coffee makers, which instantly gratifies craving individuals.

I purchased the Bosch Barino Espresso coffee-maker, an elegant and simple machine of silver-black colors, to fulfill the never-ending demand for coffee in my family. I bought it at a very reasonable price through discount offers. It didn’t need installation but can be setup by connecting the machine to a plug and switching it on to make coffee to your specifications. The coffee maker’s quality is highly commendable and features adorable. The power consumption is very reasonable considering its usage. The plastic body and steel unit present inside makes it very gorgeous and user-friendly. Even a child can operate it without any assistance from adults.

After automatically heating water or milk, coffee is ready by mixing coffee powder and sugar instantaneously. After it gets filtered, on the press of a button, many cups can be obtained and you can drink blazing hot, frothy coffees. The machine is refilled by adding milk or water simultaneously. It’s a machine that works hard and prepares infinite glasses of coffee at the touch of button, provided milk, water, sugar and of course coffee powder is filled to your requirements.

Cleaning is the easiest part in my coffee maker and is preferably done once the daily requirements are fulfilled with detergent, water and chemicals provided by the company, which provides 24-hours guidance through its toll-free number.

General advice and maintenance by experienced people is provided to customers to solve common problems faced by them with regard to the coffee maker. Some of my friends bought this model after they tried and reviewed the machine's capacity.

I love everything about it
by: Momchil

Oh, I love my coffee machine! I don’t drink alcohol, I don’t gamble, but I can’t imagine a day without my morning buddy. My machine is a Bosch TCA-4101 and I love everything about it. I’m a big fan of simple, clean design, nothing unnecessary, just simple and slightly futuristic shapes. This may sound strange to you, but every time I look at it, it reminds me of the film “2001: A space odyssey “. I guess it’s because of the sphere in the middle and that grey metallic color.

The best coffee I’ve ever had was in a restaurant in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. It was about five years ago and it was from one of those Italian coffee machines, the really big ones, that they use in places like that. I asked what kind of coffee they use, but the waiter just smiled and told me it’s a secret. Anyway this place doesn’t exist anymore so I can’t have any more of that coffee. And my Bosch is the closest I’ve ever gotten to that kind of coffee since then. Maybe that’s why I love it so much? It’s just that smell in the morning, mmmmm!

Have you ever read one of those articles about the power of smells? They use the smell of coffee to sell houses. There is something deeply comforting about that smell. That’s what I like about my mornings with my coffee machine – everything is still calm and quiet and it’s like my own tea ceremony, only with coffee  I put some coffee and water in it, the process is simple and ergonomic, I turn it on and let it work its magic, with that distinctive sound. That is a very important part of the ceremony, a coffee machine should never be too loud, because that ruins everything. And my Bosch isn’t, you do hear something going on inside, but it’s just not intrusive.

The thing that I don’t like about my machine is the way the plastic looks. Don’t get me wrong it’s well built, but the plastic panels feel cheap. Considering I paid nearly $ 200 for it, there is no excuse for that. When you put that aside, it’s easy to clean, which is very important to me. It can even make very good cappuccino and I do like variety.

Once I read, that Bosch is the corporation, which has the biggest number of patents every year and I can easily believe that. They’re not exactly famous for their coffee, but I don’t care. My machine is affordable, made by a brand that I completely trust and it makes great coffee and that’s all I need in my special quiet mornings.
