Russell Hobbs Retro 28251 review
Test scoreShow Context
- Milk frother
- Ground coffee
The striking red and chrome design of the Russell Hobbs Retro 28251 ground coffee machine is definitely eye-catching. This coffee machine comes with a 15-bar pump pressure, a steam pipe for frothing milk to create creamy cappuccinos and a thermoblock heater that Morphy Richards says will speed up the brewing process. The simple control adds to the sleek looks. We’ve put this retro coffee machine through its paces to find out just how fast it is. Read our full test review to find out.
