As always, the first impressions are with the eye. This is then confirmed by the all-round sensual experience – everything has a high-quality feel, just as it should. Operation follows an intuitive logic that makes putting the A200 into service child’s play. Even the mechanical sound of the ceramic bean grinder builds confidence. Then comes the aroma of freshly brewed coffee! This is followed by the first sip of the perfect crema and the rediscovery of an authentic aroma. This machine is a Franke from start to finish!
