The last word in covetable homewares, SMEG is the go-to brand for style seekers looking to bring a shot of colour into their kitchen.

Specialising in making the ordinary extraordinary, SMEG is renowned for turning such commonplace kitchen fixtures as the refrigerator into design delights. Now SMEG has worked their trademark colourful and contemporary magic  once more, with the must-have coffee maker of 2017.

Their first ever retro style coffee maker, Smeg’s ECF01 manual espresso coffee machine is a match made in heaven for the coffee lover and style addict in us all. Coffee aficionados will be impressed by the machine’s thermoblock heating system, whose fast service delivers a double shot stat, while its 15 bar pressure ensures a coffee experience to rival your local barista.


No longer are coffee lovers forced to choose between design and flavour,  available in black, cream, pastel blue and red, the ECF01 delivers a shot of retro 50s style to your kitchen while using up-to-the-minute technology to make your perfect coffee as easy to make as it is to drink. The intuitive controller gives users the options of one or two cups and steam plus personalised settings for coffee temperature as well as  water hardness. It even has a customisable automatic shut off time, to all you have to think about is when to enjoy that perfect cup.

Can’t decide if you want an espresso machine that works with coffee ground or one that uses pre-filled pods? Then don’t! Smeg’s ECF01 works with both options, allowing coffee lovers to make the exact coffee of their choice.  There’s even an adjustable frothing wand, perfect for creating the signature rich, thick foam to top off your morning cappuccino.

Available from David Jones, Myer and Harvey Norman stores.  It retails for $499. Go to for more details.
