We have a super automatic with a wand and never use it as we stick to americanos/expressos for the most part. So we purchased a separate purpose-built frother (Secura through amazon), and have to say its amazing. We always get compliments when guests ask for a latte, etc., and it is super easy to clean. So I would recommend a separate frother to anyone interested.

Definitely genuine. I was sold on the 3200 for that option but I couldnt pass this up. i thought iced coffee was brewed at cooler temperatures and came out lighter

Great machine. I have the cheaper version 1200 from Costco with steam wand. Going strong for 2 years. Very little maintenance and easy to clean.

I have this from the amazon deal last month for 807. Use it every day. We couldn't care less about the lattego because we drink it black and ice 99 percent of the time.

Fair enough. Cold brew is brewed at cold temperatures, long brew times, and large grind size for a more mellow flavour. This is basically putting cold water and ground coffee in a container/jar, and letting it sit for a while (overnight/24 hours)
All the Phillips machines (or any espresso machine for that matter) brew based on high temperature / high pressure / fine grind size. DIfferent flavor profile in general.
Iced coffee is typically just coffee brewed over ice / with ice added. You could do something like this, to do an iced pour over which would give a more mellow overall iced coffee if you were so included. but you would then need to purchase a grinder separately (or buy pre-ground coffee)

yah i already have a pour over setup. i can do it that way... but I'm so very lazy... just wanted something easier. I'll give the double expresso or ristretto a shot though.

Thanks!

just bought 4300 with lattago. machine gets better within a week, puck is forming finally and best coffee ive ever had. (not saying much as i'm normally a kcup/starbucks drinker)


so far we had around 50 drinks between 2 of us, i think we'd break even within a year easily.

I love lattego, sure it doesn't do fancy art, but it's simple press and go and cleaning is so easy.

yep, that's one of the better ones. currently on special at costco for 20 dollars 1kg. it's designed for espresso machine. if you aren't sure, just rub it against your hand and see how much oil is on it

Apparently, the iced coffee feature on the 3200 brews at a lowered temp and with a slower flow rate. Don't have this model just what I read...

I have a Philips 1200 and ice coffee is amazing with it. I do a double espresso (max strength, medium volume). 6 ice cubes and some milk and sugar
