Mr. Coffee Café BVMC-EL1 Latte Maker Review

Drink quality

The Mr. Coffee Café Latte Maker is designed to provide their customers a quick and easy way to make lattes without taking too much time and effort.

All you have to do is just a series of simple steps. First, you add water and coffee. Second step, put ingredients to the pitcher.Then, you come to the third step – choose latte function. In brief, your latte will be ready in no time after starting the machine.

However, if you are looking for a real shot of espresso, then we have to say that this coffee maker is not the one for you. Honestly, Mr. Coffee Café BVMC-EL1 is an entry-level maker and does not steam the milk, which is a cornerstone for making a traditional latte. In short, this machine makes Cafe au Lait, not traditional Lattes.

Design And Performance

Mr.Coffee Latte Maker is almost ready to use when unboxed, you only have to remove whisk from brew basket and snap into place on the inside of the lid. And that’s it, no other assembly is required.

Café BVMC-EL1 comes with a 24 oz carafe, so it could serve you up to 4 cups per one time. The machine would take you around 10 minutes to produce a full carafe, which is acceptable and within the recommended coffee brewing time.

It has no fussy design as there are only two buttons (Selection switch and Power Level) on this machine, making it easy to use. After plugging in the appliance, you only have to choose the function and pull the on/off lever to start the machine. The power light will turn off when the cycle is complete and now, we can pour and enjoy.

There is one minus point about this coffee maker. There is an electrical component to heat the milk at the bottom of the carafe, which makes it hand-wash only

Cleaning and Maintenance

As we mentioned earlier, Mr.Coffee latte maker is equipped with a heating element at the bottom of its carafe, you must not put it in a dishwasher or submerge it in water.

But, washing the carafe by hand is not too difficult right? All you should do is just follow the user guide and it will be ready to serve your next latte.

There are some reviews reporting about deposits in your latte maker affecting the machine’s performance. To solve this problem, we recommend using undiluted white household vinegar for cleaning and maintaining the coffee maker.

Make sure you clean your machine after every cycle so that the left-over milk won’t be in the pitch for too long, otherwise, you will ruin the taste of your next latte.

The coffee brew basket, though, can be placed in the dishwasher!
