HOME APPLIANCE TRENDS: Dualit

For budding baristas, the Express-auto four-in-one coffee and tea machine from Dualit boasts café quality drinks at home for a price of £199.96.

The tea function will also boost the temperature for a hotter cup of tea, while the automatic cooling purge reduces the temperature for a smooth espresso.

An adjustable frothing arm is provided for creating texturised milk for lattes and cappuccinos. Crafted from stainless steel and aluminium, the 15-bar pump has a fast heat-up time of around 40 seconds. A programmable dosing memory can recall the size of the user’s favourite tipple.

Other features include a 1.5 litre removable water reservoir, a cup warming plate, steam control, stainless steel frothing jug and an indicator for when the drip tray is full. It can also accommodate taller mugs. After 30 minutes of inactivity the machine will automatically switch itself off.
