Miele Coffee System Grinder Bypass
I am looking at this machine for my husband and son. One likes American coffee and one likes espresso and cappuccino. I don't drink coffee at all but it would be nice to use the machine for hot water for tea. I understand that flavored coffee beans such as hazelnut (which is my husbands favorite) are not allowed in the coffee grinder. Can ground flavored coffees be put in the grinder bypass section of the machine? How much coffee can be stored in the ground coffee container? Can this machine make a large 12 ounce mug of American coffee in one shot? Are these machines as repair prone as I am reading, or is it just a matter of proper maintenance? I have a place to store this in a wall next to a built in beverage center and this would keep my counters free of clutter.
