Home appliances are designed to make our lives easier. Some espresso coffee machines don’t quite do that. Unlike the Tecnora Classico 107M and the Cremiere TCM 106A, they don’t have detachable water tanks, so you have to first fill a jug from the tap and then bring to it your machine to fill it. Not the most economical use of your time.
Detachable water tanks should be easily removed, not tricky to extract and replace. They should be durable, made of strong stuff that can stand wear and tear in the kitchen or office. And they should have capacity, be able to hold enough water to make a decent number of coffees before needing a refill.
Take the Cremiere TCM 106A as an example. It comes with a durable, easily removable water tank that takes 1.5 litres of water. This is enough to make about 30 cups of espresso. That’s a lot of coffee.
