Rated 1 out of 5 by NoCoffeeMakesMeGrumpy As a minimum it should work
The beans don't fall down into the grinder unless you're constantly shaking the machine while it's grinding. The ease of use and design are kind of mute points: As the machine doesn't work properly, it can be as pretty as it wants, it's still a poor product. This is our second (replacement) unit, and it's hardly any better than the first.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lou2014 Good coffee maker
I love this philips grind and brew, it save time and as well as brew a very well, rich and strong coffee. Love it! However, the knob adjusted for bean and number of cups has some problem, it wasn't smooth initially and the button stay stucked, but now seemingly working fine. =/

Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer The design of Bean Inlet Is too small
I have had the same problems as the other people regarding this machine. My opinion is that the inlet for the beans is too small and makes that you have to select the correct size beans. If the manufacturer made the inlet 2 mm bigger all the worlds coffee beans would have fed into the grinder. I am not in the habit of measuring the size of the coffee beans I buy and do not wish this to become a criteria when purchasing. I am however considering widening the bean inlet to make the machine work alternatively returning the coffee machine and purchasing another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rexy Looks good and simple to use
After researching various machines for about a week I decided that this one was the best for me. I was after a non-nonsense, no frills machine that would not take up much space and no require too much work to get a cup of coffee.
Upon arrival I quickly set up the machine and followed the instructions for cleaning first use and making a cup of coffee. The instructions were easy to follow although mainly just pictures with little wording.
I have to say I was very impressed with the way the machine made the first cups of coffee. The grinding is a little loud but does not last very long. The rest of the coffee making process is very quiet and tells you when the coffee is ready with 2 beeps.
The coffee was fantastic and at a good temperature. I am very happy with this machine and glad I made the choice to buy this one.

It makes tasteful coffee in few minutes. It keeps the same taste for longer too.

Sadly, this coffee maker disappointed me. I was excited getting an all in one coffee maker with a timer. No longer would I have to stumble out of bed and fumble with my old coffee maker. I was looking forward to setting it up to brew so when I woke up every morning it would be to the heavenly smell of freshly brewed coffee. Instead I woke up to a pot of the weakest coffee I have ever brewed. Amber in colour. I fiddled with the grind seeing that the finer grind setting is suppose to produce stronger coffee, didn't make much of a difference, I made sure to set the strength to 3 bean setting, didn't work, I made sure to add the exact amount of water for the amount of coffee I programmed it to brew, still no luck, I tried a few different types of beans an no luck. I noticed each time that the filter only had a small amount of beans ground for the amount of coffee and water the machine was programmed for. I have resorted to adding a generous scoop of ground espresso beans to the filter ahead of time or brewing a shot of espresso to add to my cup of weak coffee which kinda defeats the purpose. I haven't returned this machine because. I am determined to make it work and to not give my husband the satisfaction of being wrong with my coffee maker choice as he wanted a different brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by guy1605 Didn't work
Having bought this as a Christmas present I was very disappointed with it. Having made a reasonable cup of coffee the 1st time performance then went down hill rapidly. Despite experimenting with strengths the machine appeared to be inconsistent in delivering the correct amount of ground coffee into the filter. This resulted in coloured water rather than coffee. We tried varying all the inputs with no effect so in the end it was returned. A big disappointment. Also I would say the controls are definitely not intuitive whatever it says on the description. The selection of cup numbers and coffee strength could be a lot more intuitive - poor design.
