  • Panarello Steam Wand: This auto-frothing wand makes the foam for you, while still giving you control over temperature and texture.
  • Programmable Drinks: Each drink button can be preset to your favorite recipe, and changed on the fly with handy dose and volume buttons.
  • AquaClean Equipped: Add Philip's smart-sensing water filter to track usage—letting you go up to 5000 cups without the need to descale.
  • Front Loading Water Tank: Oft-overlooked, the Carina's 1.8L slide out water reservoir is refillable without having to move your machine.
  • Bean Hopper: The Carina's 10-ounce bean hopper offers ample shots between refills.
    • Pros
      • Cost-Effective Cappuccinos: If you currently drink a couple of cafe cappuccinos a day, your Carina will have you saving money in just a few months.
      • Maintenance Magic: No water worries here; easy refills and a set-and-forget water filter means less effort, more espresso.
      • Simplicity: The Carina trades microcustomizability for ease of operation—a tap or two is all you need for your morning cup.
    • Cons
      • Button Backlights: Small amber LEDs are the only indicators you get on the machine.
      • Two-Step: While the dedicated brew button gives you the option to adjust your drink before brewing, once you have it set to your favorites the extra step is largely unnecessary.
  • Tips and Tricks
    Too hot? Press and hold the coffee strength button while the machine is off to adjust temperature.
