Saeco Coffee Machines Review: Description
Some may say that the Saeco machine is much too big for a house; but not really. If you consider all the features that it provides it’s actually quite small. It has a large 82 ounce water capacity. If that’s not enough for you, it can tap directly into your houses water line for unlimited water use. The machine has the capability to froth two separate containers of milk at the same time. It also has a turntable that assists in the automated capacity. The turntable moves freshly brewed cups out of the way and cups ready for brewing into place. The built in burr grinder allows for an all in one coffee machine. All you have to do with this machine is make sure that it has beans and water and it’s ready to go. Ready, even, for multiple cups.
It grinds the coffee beans, moves the cup out of the way after its brewed and everything in between. It does have a myriad of programmable options, but an LCD display and simple user interface make it much easier for the home connoisseur to operate. The patented burr group is a serious multitasker. It grinds, doses, tamps, brews and discards used grounds without the user having to do anything. It is removable and usually only needs to be dumped and rinsed and it’s ready to go again. Speaking of doses, the dose is adjustable for a stout cup, or mild cup depending on the customer. It also has a Cappuccinatore which will draw milk, either cold or frothed, into your coffee. They even make refrigerated containers for your milk! This machine is the essence of convenience.

Saeco Coffee Machines Review: Consumer Reviews
Most consumers who have bought this machine are ecstatic about it. Many are excited about the fact that it’s so automated. Some days you don’t even have to add coffee or water, just press a button and go. The other feature that is topping the reviews is the ease of cleaning. The machine pretty much cleans itself and dispenses the grounds so users love the fact that they just have to dump the old grounds and rinse it. The price is a frequently discussed topic. The fact that it is a grand and a half is not so attractive to some. Also, those who want to move the machine often do not like the fact that it’s heavy.
