The IMPRESSA C5 comes equipped with a Dual Frother PLUS, which makes it easy to froth or steam milk like a barista into any sized pitcher or directly into the cup. There is also a dispenser for hot water.
The IMPRESSA C5 has a small footprint (11 by 14 inches) to save space on the countertop, and it features a 7-ounce bean container and a 64-ounce water container.
The IMPRESSA C5 features a stainless steel Thermoblock heating system and a 18-bar pressure pump that guarantees fully aromatic high pressure brewed coffee and a strong layer of crema. A Clearyl Water Filtration System purifies water and eliminates the need for decalcification.
A separate coffee funnel can be used with different varieties of pre-ground coffee, such as decaf, when there are regular beans in the bean container.
The commercial quality conical steel burr grinder with six fineness settings has a special design to maximize the flavor and aroma of the coffee. The machine alerts the user to add fresh coffee beans when needed.
Self-monitoring rinsing, cleaning and descaling programs make it easy to keep the IMPRESSA C5 in top condition. All setting and activities are permanently stored in a built-in memory system.
