Severin KA 4805 4-Cup Coffee Maker : Good coffee but no integral filter and dripping jug

Bought this particular coffee machine as it works well with a smart plug. This means you can leave the power switch flicked to the “on” position and as long as you remembered to fill it up with water and coffee granules the night before, just activate the smart plug via the app on your phone to have it make coffee for you when you’re ready for it. In terms of its coffee making abilities it makes nice hot coffee very easily and keeps it hot on the hot plate, which then turns off after about 30 mins. Please note paper filters are required (size 2). I found this much easier to clean as a result of not having to remove and clean a permanent filter. The used paper filter just comes out taking the used coffee with it and goes in the bin leaving nothing behind. It is advertised as being a 4cup coffee machine, but i’m sure you know by now the cup sizes are always ridiculously small when they measure these things – realistically you can get 2 good sized mugs of coffee out of it. Perfect then for a household with 2 coffee drinkers – probably need a bigger one if there’s more or you than that. The machine looks nice and is also quite compact, build quality of the machine and the jug are both good. This coffee machine is also extremely quiet when making the coffee – we are switching from a tassimo machine which can be heard all around the house, you can’t hear this at all unless stood right next to it.

Great product good hot coffee. Let down by a poorly designed lip on the jug so it’s impossible to pour coffe without it spilling everywhere, the fuller the jug the worse it is.

This coffee maker does a good job, it doesn’t take up a lot of room and i would say its perfect for two people. It only takes a couple of minutes to finish (less than 5 minutes). For a perfect “two mugs of coffee” fill just below number 4 so you can add some milk. Be careful when you’re pouring (hold the lid down) as it can spill. There’s no filter included but its a small price to pay for a perfect cup of coffee.

Just the right size for a couple of cups of coffee. Will recommend this product.

  • Great little coffee machine.
  • Lovely little compact coffee maker
  • Just my cup of tea, Ups sorry Coffee!!

Severin KA 4805 4-Cup Coffee Maker, 0.46 Litre, 650 W, Black/Stainless Steel

  • Swivel filter 1×2 with non-drip valve
  • Automatic switch-off
  • On/off switch with pilot light
  • Hotplate
  • Water level marks on the glass jug

It looks elegant but it is very small. While it says it is a four-cup coffee machine, i was surprised to discover that the coffee jug can accommodate only two mugs of coffee. That is not much for filter coffee.

Love this little coffee maker. Simple to use and easy to clean.

This is a perfect 4 cup coffee maker. It makes just the right of coffee for 1 person.

Excellent, just my cup of tea, ups sorry coffee. Ideal for my requirements and area of the work bench top as i use it in my workshop to save me going to the kitchen which is upstairs. Gives me two decent (1/4 litre big cups) although rated as a four cup model. Paper filter easily discarded and coffee granules recycled onto the garden. Thank you for excellent customer service reply too susan.

I bought this item because it was a smaller capacity and i am extremely pleased with it. I drink 2 x 250 ml cups of coffee in the morning and that’s me for the day. There is still capacity for at least another cup. The filter papers needed are size 2. I buy melitta brand size 2 from tesco – about £1. The machine itself is small and compact yet looks more expensive. The hot plates stays hot but the coffee needs a few seconds in the microwave after adding milk. A thoroughly worth while buy.

Gave it 4 stars was very happy with it but after only 5mths it’s stopped working.

Love this little coffee maker. It’s compact and works like a dream. Yes it can spill if you pour quickly when it’s full. I just pour gently (finger on lid) and a little slowly and voilà- problem solved.

It’s what i need, small and easy to use.

This was bought for a gift so can’t comment truly.

Best cup of filter coffee i’ve had.

Delighted with my purchase, used as a bedside coffee maker.

Very good, small-scale coffee-maker.

This tends to make superior coffee but- the jug drips when you pour- it does not have an integral filter you have to purchase papers. The types amazon recommended are too large and you have to trim about 2cm off.

Does just what it suggests on the tin – very little fancy, makes coffee, retains coffee warm for a although.

Outstanding device, does what i have to have it to do.

Fast and extremely uncomplicated to use, so straightforward and simple to cleanse toodefinitely truly worth the cash and a terrific purchase.

1st class minor device, appears to be like high-quality.

Great worth for cash, does precisely what it should, and switches off following the alloted time. Discription could have provided dimension of filters, it didn’t, so i guessed. . Wrongly, but i am reducing them to measurement.

    Perfect size and easy operation, makes great coffee. Great to have ability to fill water from either side – as a south paw that’s been useful.

    Excellent little coffee machine for personal use. Just what i wanted, there is only me in our house that drinks coffee this is perfect, glass jug pours well and is good thick glass, this is opposed to the cheaper machines, worth the extra few quid. Update now six months old and the filter door will no longer stay shut, the catch is worn out already so reduced to three stars as a result.

    Excellent small coffee maker. Most filter machines are far too big for one person and this is ideal for smaller kitchens or just for making a couple of cups. The coffee is served hot and it is easy to use. The only thing that has stopped me giving it five stars is that the holder for the filter paper is just not quite the right shape. It takes number 2 filter papers but unless the filter paper is fitted very precisely the water and coffee grains can spill over the side and some coffee grains can then end up in the jug underneath. Do not however let this put you off because this is an excellent machine at a good price. Just be careful when fitting the filter paper.

    It’s compact and does the job, but i do have two minor grumbles – the jug drips unless poured slowly and carefully, and condensate from the lid of the water tank drips down the back when this is opened.

    1. Water reservoir lid corner was broken when received. Too bad, i had to tape it from both sides to keep the lid in one piece.

  14. Good value for money, does exactly what it should, and switches off after the alloted time. Discription could have included size of filters, it didn’t, so i guessed. . Wrongly, but i’m cutting them to size.

    I am disappointed because the coffees maker filters the coffee very quickly and the flavour is therefore very weak and there is no smell of coffee in my kitchen. I used two filters to see if the water stayed longer in contact with the coffee, even though it improved the flavour is still weak for me. Using the same amount of coffee in the french press (cafetière) makes a much better coffee.

    Excellent with exceptions – no filters included to kick off using this and the jug has the very annoying habit trait of dribbling coffee when pouring into a cup. Shame otherwise a tidy piece of kit.

    The unit is compact and easy to use making good coffee. It is reasonably well made but any purchaser should be aware that there is no filter supplied. I have bought many coffee filters over the years and of late everyone has included a “permanent” filter or a few paper ones to get you going. In fact for the last few years the “permanent” filter seems to be supplied as standard and had i realised one was not included would not have purchased this item.
