    We love the coffee maker .
    We don’t love the milk container. It’s HARD PLASTIC. NOT VERY DURABLE ! It broke the first month We had it. It was replaced no problem.
    I can see it’s going to be a problem as the plastic becomes more brittle over time. Too bad !
    Other wise love it !.

    My real only issue I have with this machine is the froth milk setting could be a bit warmer (even if its cranked to high in the options) . When making chocolate milk the milk comes out warm (at best) so we have to nuke the hot chocolate after for about 20 seconds.

    After almost one week, this has been a major disappointment. The coffee is so diluted even when setting the grinder at the finest setting (1) and selecting to make a very strong coffee.
    I read reviews that it takes a few cups for the machine to start producing a good cup of coffee, but at a rate of 4 cups per day in our household, we’ve now made over 30 cups but it’s still terrible.

    I will try it for another week and report back.

    – Update after 10 days of usage
    I’m happy to report that after about 10 days of frustration, the machine actually started to deliver very good coffee. It was a combination of finding the proper settings (grinder setting, amount of beans to grind and water quantity) that suited my taste bud expectations, selecting the proper coffee grains (the first batch I purchased was oily and that did not work well at all) and letting the machine “mature”.

    So the moral of the experience is that you should be patient, try a bunch of settings, experience with different coffee grains until you find the combination that works for you.

    I recently purchased the Philips 4300 Series Fully Automatic Espresso Machine and have been using it for a few weeks now. Overall, I have to say that I’m impressed with the machine’s performance and features.

    The coffee produced by this machine is delicious, with a smooth and consistent flavor that rivals some of the best coffee shops. The machine is also very easy to use, with an intuitive interface that makes customizing your drink a breeze.

    Another great feature of the machine is the milk frother, which produces rich and creamy foam that’s perfect for lattes and cappuccinos. The frother is also easy to clean and maintain.

    The only downside I’ve noticed so far is that the machine can be a bit noisy during the brewing process, but it’s not overly distracting.

    Overall, I’m very happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend the Philips 4300 Series Fully Automatic Espresso Machine to anyone looking for a high-quality, user-friendly espresso machine.

    This is our first super automatic espresso machine and it is so convenient and easy to use. There is an initial break in phase that other people have talked about where at the coffee came out super weak. But even in the instructions it advises that it will take a few cups for the machine to self adjust, which it seems to do. The LatteGo feature is a no brainer as it takes the guess work out of creating milk froth. It’s so simple and easy to use with just a press of a button. Clean up of the LatteGo system is really easy too as you can just use the quick rinse feature to clean out the LatteGo container and then put back the remainder left over milk into the fridge to store using the LatteGo container. If you want to do a deep clean of the LatteGo container it just comes apart and then snaps back together easily. I love the variety of drinks that it can make as well. Having the user profiles does make it easier between my spouse and I as we have different strengths and volumes. Having the digital display is a great feature to have also as it’s very visual and helps you create your brew to your liking while saving it to your profile for next time.

    If simplicity and ease of use is what you’re looking for this is definitely the unit to get. We debated between the 3200 and the 4300 but ultimately went with he 4300 for the additional brew varieties, user profiles, and digital display. No regrets whatsoever going with he 4300 as there is no guesswork as the digital display tells you the measurements. We’ve had it for over a month now and have no complaints so far.

    The Philips 4300 Espresso Machine consistently delivers a good to excellent cup of coffee (or espresso, cappuccino, Americano…) and is reliable.

    I’ve used my machine daily for six months before writing this review. I wanted to have a very clear idea of its operation and reliability before I wrote anything. Here are the key things to know:

    Expect to spend at least a couple of weeks playing around with the numerous settings before you get the coffee precisely to your liking. There are number of different things you can adjust using the front panel. Plus the grinder itself can be adjusted; I’ve currently got mine set at nearly the finest grind.

    I haven’t quantified it, but I believe the Philips uses quite a bit more beans to make a given amount of coffee than other methods. I certainly know I’m refilling it with beams frequently. Of course, this might just be because I’m drinking more coffee due to the extreme convenience (one button operation) of the system.

    The machine also uses other consumables at a fairly rapid clip – namely the AquaClean filter and descaling tables. Normally, I would write all these off as a scam, designed primarily to contribute to Philips’ bottom line. But the first time I used a coffee oil remover tablet it had an immediate positive impact on the taste of my coffee. And, the machine will nag you endlessly if you don’t change the AquaClean filter, so I think there’s no escaping that.

    I clean my machine out quite thoroughly once a week, and lube it. This takes about 20 minutes. I think it’s worth the trouble.

    Within a short time after purchasing it, I noticed that the two o-rings on the boiler nozzle had already deteriorated. Others reported having the same problem.

    I tried to contact Philips to have these replaced, assumedly under warranty. I got absolutely nowhere with that; and I would say that might be a real weakness in purchasing from Philips. Their service appears to be nonexistent.

    However, the one thing I did extract from Philips’ pathetic excuse for a service infrastructure is an “exploded view” drawing of the entire machine which lists the part number for quite literally every single part in the system. This allowed me to track down replacement parts from a third party which set me back all of a couple dollars.

    I haven’t had the same problem since I replaced those original o-rings. And, now, I’m thinking that I created this problem with over-aggressive cleaning; namely I was cleaning off the lubricant from these o-rings, which possibly then caused them to rapidly wear out (because this nozzle pushes into a receptacle every time you turn the machine on, so there is frequent motion and wear on them).

    When I first started using the machine, I would frequently get the “Empty grounds container” message, even though I had already emptied the container. I thought I might have a faulty sensor, but eventually, I stumbled on to the reason for this in the manual. The machine only knows that you’ve emptied this container if you remove it while the machine is switched on, and you let at least five seconds elapse before you place it back. If you empty the container with the machine off, or do it too quickly, it doesn’t know you’ve done it and won’t reset.

    The water reservoir really isn’t large enough. I’m filling it back up all the time. You get used to it.

    The beam hopper isn’t really big enough either. You’ll find yourself replenishing that quite frequently. And, the seal on the lid for the bean hopper rapidly becomes loose after use. You might worry that your beans will get stale because of this; but if you drink anywhere near as much coffee as my wife and I do, I can tell you they won’t be in there long enough for that.

    The system is quite noisy when grinding. Live with it. It lasts all of about 30 seconds.

    I also don’t believe the Philips 4300 is entirely consistent. Either in the quality/taste of the coffee it produces, or even the volume. But, there can be variations in your beans, and maybe your water. So, it’s hard to pin this stuff down. But, bottom line, I always get a good cup of coffee, and frequently a great one. Sometimes it seems like my first sip of a cup, which is full of crema, can be a bit bitter, but then the rest of the cup is fine.

    Obviously, the Philips 4300 Espresso Machine is expensive (and I was lucky enough to purchase it when the price briefly dipped to $900). Maybe there’s a payback on it your alternative is Starbucks, or buying prepared coffee anywhere else. But, I’m sure it’s substantially more expensive to use than most other home brew methods, like a French press. But, the convenience factor is very high, and it’s wonderful to be able to wake up, stagger downstairs into my kitchen, press a couple buttons and be served a very good cup of coffee before I’m even entirely conscious. I have no hesitation about recommending the system, and I imagine it’s a relatively good value compared to its competitors.

    6 Month Edit: Still going strong! I love this thing. I can’t remember the last time I bought a latte from a store (except maybe during travel). It’s definitely going to pay for itself in the next couple months. This thing sparks so much joy in my life! My only small complaint is that the milk froth option only goes up to making a 12 oz latte. The carafe holds enough to make a 16 oz, but you have to run 2 separate milk froths to get there. It’s a very small thing but for the future it would be nice. Also for some reason it doesn’t “remember” that I usually do 2 espresso shots, so I have to select that each time. Basically my biggest complaints are software complaints ha. The machine itself works so well. It is easy to clean, easy to maintain, and our water is fairly hard but I haven’t had to change the water filter yet even though I use it everyday.
    Still great! I’ll try to update at a year 😊

    Original Review:
    I have spent actual years of my life trying to find the cheapest way to make espresso lattes at home. I started simple with an aeropress, a moka pot, upgraded to a cheap espresso maker, bought a grinder, etc, etc. And yet I still found myself buying coffee at coffee shops. I personally didn’t have the patience to find the exact right grind and the exact right tamp to get a store quality espresso.

    I finally caved and bought this 4300 series latte maker. This thing is going to save me so much money over the next year. I’ve only had it about a week but I’ve already used it every day and it’s perfect.

    It’s SO easy to use. Set up is a breeze. It basically works right out of the box. It comes with a water filter which was nice. Once you get the beans in there, it takes 2-5 shots to “load” the mechanisms and actually put out a shot of espresso and not just water. I did need to adjust the grind to a finer grind (setting 3) to get a good crema. If you adjust it after beans are in, make sure you do it WHILE the grinder is working (you’ll have to brew a shot to do this) and be ready to work quickly. I guess if you do it while it’s off and there are beans in there you can damage the grinder. I would make sure to read the instructions all the way through, and get familiar with the machine. Once you do, the whole process is a breeze.

    Once you have your settings dialed in, making a latte is as easy as put a cup underneath, press a button, and go. It takes approximately 1-2 min for a latte. It grinds beans fresh for every shot. If you set everything to the largest settings, you get about a 12 oz latte.

    Cleaning and maintinence is super easy. The machine steps you through most of it. It tells you the steps to take to install the water filter, tells you when to empty the waste grounds contatiner, gives you multiple cleaning settings. I rinse out the lattego container twice and it takes less than a minute. I feel like this machine is so well thought out and it feels pretty well put together.

    Overall I have very little to complain about. Once I dialed in my settings, I found the coffee I get out is as yummy as any latte from a coffee shop. My biggest complaints are:
    – You only get about a 12 oz coffee automatically, if you want a 16 oz or 20 oz, you’ll have to do multiple milk froths and espresso runs
    – The machine is rather loud. It’s not a deal breaker for me by any means, but in the morning it can be a little jarring and it always spooks our cats.
    – Adjusting the grind setting is a bit of a hastle. You have to do it while the machine is running and while it does that , the grind setter wants to move in the opposite direction of which direction you’re trying to go so you have to have a pretty decent grip on it. Luckily you should only really have to do this once.
    – The latteGo carafe leaves about a cm of milk on the bottom even if you’ve put the right amount in. If you dump and clean it out every time, you’d end up wasting a decent amount of milk.
    -I’ve heard people have a hard time using the pre-ground coffee slot and I haven’t tried it. But it does get pretty steamy each time it runs which I imagine would make it rather hard to clean.

    Some tips and tricks I’ve learned since using this machine:
    – This thing likes to rinse itself out a lot. (Which is good) but it’s a little more hastle to clean out the water catcher on the bottom. I just keep an old coffee cup nearby and let it rinse into that and dump it out every time. It’s a lot less cumbersome to clean out.
    – If you have leftover milk in the latteGo, I do 2-3 automatic rinses to get milk out of the milk tube and then put the whole container in the fridge for the next day. It cleans out the frothing mechanism enough that milk doesn’t go bad in there and you don’t have to waste the little bit of milk in there.
    – A lot of regular espresso beans might be too oily for super-automatic espresso machines. Apparently that oil will eventually gunk up the grinder, so it’s recommended to buy medium roast beans. You can google some beans that are safe for the machine and find the best ones for you. I like the lavazza brand.
    – If you’re like me and enjoy a flavored latte, invest in some syrups with the pumps. It really really completes the whole “barista at home” thing I was going for. Even better if you can get a tiered holder for all of them!
    – If you want to be a little extra, get yourself some disposable coffee cups with lids. They’re definitely worse for the environment but if you’re drinking everyday it can get a little cumbersome making sure you always have a clean travel cup. Or just invest in a bunch of dishwasher safe travel cups!

    This thing is pricey for sure. But I’ve definitely spent a long time and a lot of money before this to try to replicate what it can do and it is so worth just spending the money on it. It sparks a little bit of joy for me every time I use it and gives me the quality coffee I want everytime. It is easy to use and maintain. It also makes making multiple lattes a breeze if you are a multi-cup household. As long as it doesn’t die within a year- it’ll be so so worth it!
