As you’d expect from a coffee machine that just gets on with the job of dispensing the black stuff there’s little in the way of features and functionality. A one-touch Play and Select button manages drink selection, while the machine switches itself off after one minute. That’s excellent news if you don't have the time, patience or inclination to find out more about the little coffee maker.
