General info

1.warranty period

1

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
2.thickness

465mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.weight

10kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.height

455mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.width

355mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.volume

75109.13cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Components

1.Has burr grinder
Pronto ME 712
A burr grinder works in such a way that you can get a consistent, uniform size of grind each time, which is one of the key aspects of getting great tasting espresso. On the other hand an inferior blade grinder often leaves you with an inconsistent grind.
2.has a touch screen
Pronto ME 712
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
3.Has an integrated grinder
Pronto ME 712
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
4.Cup clearance is adjustable
Pronto ME 712
An adjustable cup clearance is useful when you wish to use larger cups and mugs, such as when making a latte macchiato.
5.Has a steam wand
Pronto ME 712
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
6.Has cup warmer
Pronto ME 712
With a cup warmer you can heat the cups before pulling your espresso so that it doesn't go cold quickly, which affects the taste and quality. It also means that you don’t have to manually heat them using hot water.

Water source

1.Has a removable water tank
Pronto ME 712
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
2.water tank capacity

2l

With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.
3.Has integrated filter
Pronto ME 712
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
4.Has a hot water outlet
Pronto ME 712
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
5.Has PID controller
Pronto ME 712
A PID controller controls the temperature of the boiler electronically. It offers a far greater degree of accuracy and consistency than a regular, mechanical thermostat used to control temperature. This is very important as a temperature of around 92°C to 96°C is key to pulling the perfect espresso.
6.Water tank is transparent
Pronto ME 712
With a transparent water tank you can easily see when it needs to be filled up. This is important as attempting to make an espresso with an empty tank can damage the machine.

Features

1.programmable buttons

0

These buttons can be programmed for different types of coffee such as an espresso, doppio or ristretto. This means once you have mastered a particular style of coffee, you can get it the same every time.
2.Has integrated milk frother
Pronto ME 712
With an integrated milk frother, the machine can automatically produce frothed milk for use in cappuccinos and other drinks.
3.Has one touch cappuccino
Pronto ME 712
With one press of a button you can create a cappuccino.
4.Has a pre-infusion function
Pronto ME 712
With a pre-infusion function you get a low pressure of water before it ramps up to around 9 bar of pressure. This gently expands the grinds to get a smooth extraction and to help prevent channeling in the cake.
5.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Pronto ME 712
With a double boiler or heat exchanger system, you can brew and steam milk at the same time. This has an advantage over single boiler machines where you have to wait between brewing and steaming for the temperature to adjust.

Miscellaneous

1.Uses ground coffee
Pronto ME 712
Ground coffee, especially if freshly roasted and ground, results in much better quality coffee than the kind of results you get with pods or capsules.
