Bosch is a large multinational company that is well known as a manufacturer of household appliances. Hard to find a house that doesn’t have an appliance from this long-established German firm, right? The company was founded in Stuttgart (Germany) in 1886 and has reached our days as one of the absolute leaders in the market of engineering and electronics applied to the home. Refrigerators, kitchenware, washing machines, dishwashers – the tentacles of Bosch extend almost to infinity.
We will, of course, focus on your coffee machine production. We will go through the different models on sale, and explain their fundamental differences so that you can make the right choice between them.
Bosch Automatic Coffee Makers
Three machines mostly make up the Bosch range of super-automatic coffee machines. The three models fit perfectly into what would be an essential, medium and premium range of this type of coffee machine, so it is easy to see which of them is the best suited to what we are looking for.
We are going to present them briefly, and we will stop especially in those aspects that differentiate them. If you are planning to buy a Bosch automatic coffee machine, be sure to read the following reviews. Remember that you can get more information about any coffee machine by clicking on the links in the text.
We start with the TES51523RW, the most basic automatic from Bosch. It corresponds to the model TES51523RW and includes such exciting functions as the automatic cleaning of all the pipes and the also automated decalcification program, the Aroma Whirl System Plus (that allows us to get an extra taste and intensity in our espressos) or the solvent water tank of almost 2 litres of capacity.
The coffee storage capacity is up to 250 grams (always of coffee beans), and the brewing unit can be removed from the interior of the coffee maker without difficulty.
One step above is the Bosch VeroCafe Latte. In addition to the virtues and features of the TES51523RW, it has a separate input for ground coffee, ceramic (not steel) grinding wheels and a cappuccinatore system that allows cappuccinos and lattes (i.e. milk froth drinks) to be prepared automatically at the touch of a button.
It also has a digital display on which we can read all the steps and actions of the coffee maker as they are produced. None of these features are to be found in the previous model.
The water tank of the VeroCafe Latte is similar in size (1.7 litres), but the compartment for storing coffee is more significant: it holds 300 grams of the product.
Finally, we have the option of getting the incredible Bosch VeroAroma, which improves on the previous ones in almost every aspect – and is also more expensive, of course. The main differences between the VeroAroma and the VeroCafe are the Aroma Double Shot function (extra strength espresso), and a more complete and entirely tactile control panel, as well as other details and more secondary features.
It is also available in two versions: Bosch VeroAroma 300 and the more advanced Bosch VeroAroma 700. You can read about the differences between the two in the Bosch VeroAroma analysis that we carried out at the time in the portal.
These three Bosch automatic coffee machines work at 15 bar pressure, except for the VeroAroma 700 model, which has a unique 19 bar pump.
Drip coffee machines from Bosch
The other significant segment of coffee machines where Bosch works is the filter or drip coffee machines. Here, the Bosch TKA8651 is undoubtedly worth mentioning.
It is a high range drip-coffee machine, built with stainless steel. With a thermal carafe (it keeps the temperature of the coffee much longer), a timer to start it when we are most interested, and the extraordinary capacity of more than one litre in the water tank. It works with disposable size paper filters and has an automatic decalcification program.
All in all, the Bosch TKA8651 is an option that should always be considered if you are looking for a good drip coffee machine.
Bosch Built-in Coffee Machine
And finally, there is the Bosch CTL 636 built-in coffee machine. It is a built-in coffee machine that can be integrated into your kitchen furniture without taking up more space than necessary.
And it behaves like a real One Touch coffee machine, with all the features worthy of a top-of-the-range coffee maker.
