10 Coffee specialitiesWith the CI Touch® you can enjoy a wide variety of coffee specialities. As well as the 4 classics - espresso, café crème, cappuccino and latte macchiato - 6 other coffee specialities such as lungo, americano and espresso macchiato can be prepared.
Manual Bean SelectTo perfectly prepare numerous coffee specialities, different types of coffee beans are needed to ensure the best possible taste experience. Therefore the CI Touch® has a two-chamber bean container called "Bean Select" (manual selection), which depending on the recipe and personal taste allows you to select mild coffee beans or strong aromatic espresso beans for example. The Aromasafe® lid and the tinted container also help preserve the flavour of the coffee beans. The integrated ground coffee chute also gives you the opportunity to use coffee which is already ground.
PRO AQUA Filter technologyIf you use a Melitta® Pro Aqua Water filter then the CI Touch® only needs to be descaled once a year. The filtered water not only improves the quality and the flavour of your coffee, but also prevents limescale deposits building up in the water system.
(This is based on brewing six 120 ml cups of coffee a day and changing the filter six times in accordance with the appliance specifications.)
My Coffee MemoryYou don't want to set your personal coffee preferences each time you make a coffee? No problem! With the "My Coffee Memory" feature you can programme your favourite coffee specialities completely individually. The Melitta® CI Touch® saves the preference settings for up to 4 people.
Italian Preparation ProcessThe Italian Preparation Process gives you authentic flavour by ensuring that the ingredients are added in the correct order according to the original Italian recipe. So for latte macchiato the espresso is added after the milk and frothed milk and for cappuccino it is the other way round.
