Miele CM 7750 Review 2022: Simply Breathtaking!

After working as a professional barista for many years, Arne Preuss founded Coffeeness.

I'll admit that I'm really excited to bring you this Miele CM 7750 review. For starters, this is one of the most impressive super automatic espresso machines I've ever seen. I won't give too much away just yet, suffice to say we're talking about a machine with three bean containers! 

I’ll admit that I’m really excited to bring you this Miele CM 7750 review. For starters, this is one of the most impressive super automatic espresso machines I’ve ever seen. I won’t give too much away just yet, suffice to say we’re talking about a machine with three bean containers! 

Given that Miele has a history of flying under the radar, the German manufacturer seems to have changed its tune with the CM 7750. I mean, this is a big, bold and flashy statement of a coffee maker, with bells and whistles galore. From where I’m sitting, it’s almost as though Miele wants to be noticed at last! 

You should be aware that this Miele CM 7750 review isn’t for everyone. Getting hold of this machine involves a pretty serious financial outlay. If money’s no object, great. Otherwise, consider taking a deep breath and skipping ahead to the Miele CM 7750 Price section. Oh, and you should probably be sitting down too.

Miele CM 7750 Review Overview

The Miele CM 7750 features the distinctive design aesthetic for which the manufacturer is known. There isn’t another automatic coffee maker that looks quite like a Miele, and the Obsidian Black finish lends the machine a refined and streamlined appearance. 

I happen to love the way Miele coffee makers look. Plus, during my Miele CM 7750 review I was particularly impressed by the machine’s high quality construction. There’s plenty of stainless steel in evidence, including the drip tray and dispensing spout. What’s more, the rugged housing appears to be pretty much indestructible. 

I should mention that the Miele CM 7750 is spectacularly big and bulky. If space is tight in your kitchen you might be better off perusing the more compact models in my super automatic espresso machine guide 2022. Still, like I said earlier, the manufacturer is determined to make a grand statement here. I guess bigger is better in this case.

Up top you have access to the three bean containers. There’s also a wonderful stainless steel active cup warmer up here. There are few things that make me happier than preparing coffee in pre warmed espresso cups!

Preparing a delicious coffee with the Miele CM 7750 CoffeeSelect

One of the things that I noticed right away during my Miele CM 7750 review was the centrally located touchscreen display. Many of you will take this feature for granted, but it’s quite the leap forward for Miele. The display is glossy and understated, with a user interface that’s as user friendly as I’d expect from Miele.

Miele CM 7750 Price

By now most of you will have cottoned on to the fact that we aren’t looking at a budget machine here. Far from it – at $5,799.00, the Miele CM 7750 sits comfortably in the sparsely populated ultra high end price category. There’s little doubt this is the German manufacturer’s flagship product. In fact, I’d say Miele is most definitely attempting to beat Jura at its own game.

Still, the question remains: does this machine’s performance justify that jaw dropping price tag? I’ll reserve judgment for now. In the meantime, let’s continue this Miele CM 7750 review by taking a closer look at what the machine can do.

Miele CM 7750 Features

Chances are if you’ve made it this far into my Miele CM 7750 review, you’re considering dropping a serious chunk of cash on a coffee maker. With that in mind, you’ll be hoping for an impressive array of features to justify your investment. I’m happy to report that the Miele CM 7750 really delivers in that regard. 

User Interface

The LCD-Touchscreen of the Miele CM 7750.

I’ve been known to gently poke fun at Miele for using old fashioned user interfaces. It always seemed as though the manufacturer was actively ignoring advances in technology. That’s all changed with the CM 7750, which features a modern LCD touchscreen display. 

Although the screen is small and you won’t see beautiful full color drink icons (that would be too much for Miele), the user interface is simple and intuitive. Plus, the menus are extremely easy to navigate. 

Aside from the touchscreen display, there’s a back button and a power button. All in all, the user interface fits perfectly with the overall vibe of a well designed and elegant machine.

App

During my review of the Miele CM 6360, I accused the manufacturer of designing a half baked app that wasn’t worth using. To be honest, I’m not really a fan of using my phone to operate a coffee maker, but I know it’s a big deal for some folks. 

I’d like to think that Miele has improved its app by now, especially seeing as the manufacturer seems to be intent on raising its profile. Anyway, the app allows you to remotely operate and monitor your machine from the comfort of wherever you might be.

Three Bean Hoppers

All Three Bean Hoppers of the Miele CM 7750.

Now we get to the part of the Miele CM 7750 review where I get to gush about the machine’s three bean containers! Seriously, this is the first time I’ve seen this feature on a super automatic espresso machine and I’m pretty darn excited. 

One of the traditional limitations of an automatic coffee maker has been not being able to switch between coffee beans. 

A choice of three hoppers frees you up to experiment with different beans whenever you feel like it. Perhaps you have a favorite bean type for straight espresso and another for milk based specialty drinks. No problem! The Miele CM 7750 has you covered. 

Stainless Steel Grinder

Having access to three bean containers is all very well, but if the machine’s grinder isn’t up to snuff there’s no point to any of it. Fortunately, Miele has designed a pretty special slanted grinder with stainless steel conical burrs. 

From what I can gather, this is one of the quietest grinders around. Miele has also gone to great lengths to soundproof the CM 7750, making it impressively quiet during operation. 

You may be wondering why the grinder is slanted. Well, it’s all part of Miele’s AromaticSystem, which also includes a dynamic brewing chamber. Apparently, the grinder’s slanted position makes it more efficient at dosing the brew chamber. 

In my opinion, what’s even cooler is the impeller, which removes excess grounds from the burrs. That cuts down on cross contamination when you’re switching between bean hoppers. Nicely done Miele!

Ground Coffee Bypass

I can usually justify the inclusion of a ground coffee bypass doser as a way to easily enjoy the occasional decaf. However, may I remind you that the Miele CM 7750 has three bean hoppers! Surely one of those could be used as a dedicated decaf coffee container. 

Anyway, whether or not you see the ground coffee bypass as irrelevant, it’s located behind the side mounted service door and has a nifty integrated scoop.

Specialty Drinks

As you might expect from a machine at this price point, the Miele CM 7750 can deliver just about any specialty drink you can imagine. Preset drinks include espresso, flat white, cappuccino and espresso macchiato

You’re also able to tinker with a variety of parameters for coffee, including shot volume, temperature and strength. In combination with the infinitely adjustable grinder, this means you can really dial in your espresso. 

The fun doesn’t end there, either; the CM 7750 is fully equipped to make tea, offering different water temperatures and steep times for black tea, green tea and others. 

My only complaint is that the CM 7750 is only equipped with one thermoblock. That means the machine could potentially have a hard time maintaining a consistent temperature during heavy use. 

Milk Foam

Delicious Milk Foam from the Miele CM 7750.

If my previous experience using Miele super automatics is anything to go by, you can expect any chocolate notes in your coffee beans to be accentuated to the max. And yes, this chocolate-forward espresso makes for extra tasty milk based espresso drinks. 

The Miele CM 7750 produces sublime steamed milk, thanks to the cappuccinatore which is integrated into the dispensing spout. 

The included milk flask attaches to the spout via a milk hose, making milk frothing easy and convenient. Needless to say, you can adjust the amount of milk froth and hot milk for each beverage then save your creation for next time. 

Incidentally, the Miele CM 7750 passes my latte macchiato test with flying colors. Then again, I never really imagined it wouldn’t. The perfect blend of hot milk and milk foam is delivered first, followed by rich espresso. Really, is there anything better?

10 User Profiles

The Miele CM 7750 allows for 10 user profiles, which is generous to say the least. Some might say this is overkill, but I think Miele is trying to appeal to office workers with this feature. In fact, I’d be willing to bet there are teams of office workers across the country begging their bosses to shell out for one of these machines! 

Anyway, each of the 10 user profiles can store up to 10 separate drinks, all of which can be programmed to the user’s specifications. That’s pretty incredible in my opinion!

Brew Group

The CM 7750’s brew unit is where all the magic happens during espresso preparation. As I already mentioned, the brew group contains a dynamic brewing chamber which expands during the extraction process. This is meant to improve espresso quality by allowing water and coffee to mix thoroughly, therefore maximizing aroma and flavor. 

In any case, the brew group is fully removable, so you should take it out and rinse it on the daily. After all, something so sophisticated should get the care and attention it deserves!

Cup Height

It’s almost always the case that you’re able to adjust the height of an automatic coffee maker’s dispensing spout. However, the Miele CM 7750 does all the work for you. 

I love this feature – once you’ve placed a cup or travel mug under the spout, it automatically adjusts, using a sensor to detect the size of the vessel. Heck, the thing even moves up slightly after it’s dispensed milk to keep itself clean during espresso preparation! It’s little touches like this that get me every time.

LED Lighting

I’m a sucker for low level ambient lighting, which is why I appreciate this feature so much. The CM 7750 has a soft LED light that illuminates your drink as it’s being prepared. 

Some might see this as needless fluff, but I love the idea. Plus, it’ll only make your kitchen look more sophisticated in the evening.

Pot Function

On the face of it, Miele’s pot function is a pretty cool addition. You’re able to make up to eight coffees at one time, which might be handy for dinner parties or particularly sleepy mornings. 

However, I’d say the least Miele could do is throw in one of their coffee pots as part of the deal. I mean, we are talking about a machine that costs thousands of dollars. Charging an extra $119.00 for its Miele Coffee Pot strikes me as a little unfair. 

Child Safety Lock

I just trashed the manufacturer for being mean with its coffee pots, so I’ll get back on track by congratulating Miele on its child safety lock. This is a feature you don’t see on many bean to cup machines, but it just makes so much sense. 

The one touch safety lock means little hands won’t mess up your drink settings or get burned accidentally. Not only that, you won’t end up with caffeinated kids bouncing off the walls!

Warranty

During the course of this Miele CM 7750 review, I’ve had nothing but good things to say about the machine’s high quality design and build. However, things do go wrong once in a while, and a “lemon” super automatic coffee machine isn’t unheard of. 

Fortunately, Miele offers a fairly standard two year warranty and will take care of anything that isn’t working as it should.

How To Use the Miele CM 7750

Just because the Miele CM 7750 has an intimidating price tag doesn’t mean it’s difficult to use. On the contrary, this machine has been designed for maximum ease of operation. I know that sounds like advertising sweet talk, but it’s really true!

Before using the Miele CM 7750 for the first time, you’ll need to load up at least one bean container with quality coffee beans. Once that’s done, fill the removable reservoir with filtered water and you’re ready to go. Well, not quite – you should prepare a couple of coffees and throw them out first. That’ll season the machine nicely.

By the way, now’s as good a time as any to let you know that you’re able to assign a specific hopper to any specialty drink. If you’re happy with the way it turns out, you can save the settings for next time. Pretty cool eh?

As I mentioned earlier in this Miele CM 7750 review, the machine’s user interface is really intuitive and easy to navigate. That’s why I recommend you dive right in and start to make drinks. 

Drink Preparation

Miele CM 7750 Coffee Drinks Overview.

Keep the user manual handy; it’s super detailed and thorough. However, don’t read it cover to cover right away. I mean, do you really want to spend an hour putting yourself to sleep when you could be playing with your new machine?

Just remember that the CM 7750 has been designed so that just about anyone can quickly start achieving great results. After that, it’s simply a case of experimenting with different grinder settings and adjusting parameters for espresso and milk foam. 

I’d recommend starting with a fine grind setting and adjusting the coffee strength to the highest value. As for the pre brewing setting, do yourself a favor and ignore the option to turn it off. Pre infusion is an integral step in the extraction process, so why Miele would allow you to bypass it is beyond me.

Once you’re feeling comfortable and in control of your destiny, try making coffee in Expert Mode. This allows you to get all spontaneous and adjust settings while the machine is in operation. Trust me, you’ll be making the specialty drinks of your dreams in no time!

Miele CM 7750 Cleaning

In my experience, cleaning and maintaining a Miele automatic coffee maker is about as easy as it gets. Especially in comparison with some other machines. I can see the CM 7750’s various automated cleaning programs appealing to a lot of you. 

Still, don’t think you’re off the hook as far as daily maintenance goes. You’ll need to empty and rinse the drip tray, used grounds container and water tank at the end of each day. This is also the time to remove the brew unit and rinse it of any stray coffee grounds. 

As for the milk frothing system, it has an effective self rinsing function. However, it’s a good idea to take the whole thing apart once a week and unclog the milk pipework using a cleaning brush. Again, once a week you’ll want to remove the main dispenser before taking it apart and cleaning it thoroughly. 

Miele loves to talk up its AutoDescale function, but I see it as gimmicky overkill. This function involves inserting a Miele Descaling Cartridge and setting the machine to descale itself every day. 

It’s a good thing the cartridge is optional, or else there’d be steam coming out of my ears. Suffice to say, I’d ignore that altogether and just descale once a month using Miele Descaling Tablets.

The CM 7750 will let you know when deep cleaning tasks need to be performed. Most notably, the machine will ask for a brew unit degreasing program after a couple of hundred coffees. 

The manufacturer recommends using Miele Coffee Machine Cleaning Tablets for this, and the process only takes around 10 minutes. Ignore the prompts at your own risk – the CM 7750 will simply lock you out if you don’t play ball.

Miele CM 7750 vs Other Super Automatics

I don’t feel like this Miele CM 7750 review would be complete without throwing a couple of other machines into the mix. Let’s take a look at how the CM 7750 stacks up against two of my all time favorites.

Miele CM 7750 vs Jura Z10

Costing $3,799.00 on Amazon, the Jura Z10 is substantially more affordable than the Miele CM 7750. Not only that, the Z10 is a magnificent machine that blew me away during my hands on review. 

The Jura Z10 is a thing of beauty, and its huge full color touchscreen display is a marvel. What’s more, thanks to Jura’s Pulse Extraction Process technology, the espresso you’ll get from this machine is simply excellent. The Jura Z10 might not have multiple bean hoppers, but it’s definitely worth considering.

Miele CM 7750 vs Miele CM 6360

If the CM 7750’s luxury price tag is just too much to swallow, you might want to take a look at the Miele CM 6360. At a much more realistic $2,381.05, this automatic espresso maker won’t break the bank in quite such a violent fashion. 

However, you’ll still own a machine that’s capable of giving the competition a run for its money. I was particularly impressed by the quality of espresso and milk foam I got from the CM 6360, and I wasn’t even too bothered by the machine’s outdated user interface.
