Smeg unveils its first ever Bean-to-Cup coffee machine

Smeg is launching its first ever Bean-to-Cup coffee machine – the BCC02 – which is a small but smart gadget packed with features to grind and brew your coffee to perfection from start to finish with just the touch of a button.

Adding to the brand’s line-up of coffee appliances, this latest machine packs a punch in both design and functionality. Whilst resembling the 50s style curves Smeg is famous for, coming in Black, Red, Taupe and White in a matte style, the BCC02 offers a more contemporary finish thanks to a stylish brushed aluminium and soft touch matte exterior. The controls have been ergonomically integrated into the design for a smooth finish.

In fact, it has already scooped a 2021 Good Design Award.

The company said the BCC02 has been designed to create “the ultimate home barista experience”, offering an array of coffee styles and grinding levels with a primary and secondary menu function. The machine will pour ristretto coffee, espresso, americano as well as hot water. For those after a caffeine hit, different strengths and levels can also be selected via the touch menu. Lattes, macchiatos or cappuccinos more your thing? Frothy milk can be produced at the touch of a button and the machine will grind coffee to the perfect texture, depending on your beverage of choice.

The one-touch menu grinds and prepares coffee beans almost instantly, while a Thermoblock system quickly heats water, so you can enjoy your personalised beverage in a matter of seconds.

With its 1.4-litre capacity, you can enjoy up to six cups of coffee before refills. And the BCC02 also features a convenient descaling alarm ensuring optimum up-keep of your machine.
