CoffeeGeek - Saeco Talea Ring Super Auto - Brian Anteater's Review


With all the sophistication this unit has I was surprised it doesn't have a water level indicator.The unit only tells you when the reservoir is empty instead of letting you know to add more water before you start. To have the brewing stop half way...

Fully customizable brewing ; multiple sensors to give you alerts for things needing attention ; sophisticated grinder ; removable brewing unit ; adjustable cup shelf

proprietary water filter ; small water reservoir with no water level indicator ; shallow angled bean hopper means that you have to regularly push beans towards the grinder inlet

The Saeco Talea Ring has all of the features you want in a fully automatic espresso/coffee machine by providing all of the tools to make coffee, espre


The Saeco Talea Ring Plus is a super-automatic machine that takes all of the work out of making a cup of coffee, leaving just the enjoyment of the finished beverage.

Super-automatic machine with fully programmable settings, Saeco Brewing System regulates the water pressure to vary the consistency and flavor of the beverage, makes coffee or espresso, froths milk, BEST PRICE

Complicated cleaning cycle

Consumer review by: Alain Lapointe (

A very good Super Coffee Machine that you can count on every morning. I don't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is looking for an Espresso Machi


Before buying this machine, I hesitated between a Super auto and a Semi auto like the Expobar Office Lever. And I don't regret my choice. You can easily configure this machine from a complete menu accessible from the ring.

Ease of use. Rapidity of this machine to be ready to make a shot. Consistency of the coffee taste. Facility to froth milk. Ease of weekly maintenance. And a great design

Plastic taste of the coffee for the first shots. It is not so easy to learn how to navigate in the menu but once you know it, it's OK. The Operating Manual could be better
