Our second Saeco Auto coffee machine

 

fi. A couple of complaints though, the steamer knob is difficult to grasp and turn, and the drip tray does not project far enough to forward and the steamer spout just manages to drip and splash over the edge.Small problems for such great tasting coffee.

Continually breaking down

 

The coffee tastes good which is definitely this machines saving grace as it continues to break down one way or the other. We've had one at work for two years and it has been sent for repairs numerous times and replaced twice and still continues to be a...

Best 2k spent ever

 

Produces could quality coffee with very little issue. The twin boiler is a godsend and provides flexibility of use. We've used it in our office since 2006ish. So for 10 years we've only ever had a couple of minor issues which were fixed during the...

My second machine after 14 years

 

k yourself, that's why it comes with a frothing wand. If this is not what you want then manage your ecoectations accordingly. Good luck and buon café!

Saeco Royoal Cappuccino

 

mum this helps as well. A tell tale sign if the machine needs a de-scale is the cappuccinore will not froth the milk. Only use de-scale solution that is designed for these machines (Not home made remedies). Use filtered water ALWAYS, if you can't use a...

Good Coffee, No Mess but Unreliable

 

l has inherent faults. This time around if the repair costs more than $250, I will have the machine put down and would never consider purchasing another Saeco.

Good coffee, no mess

Unreliable and costly to repair

Our guests love the coffee this machine produces

 

no problems. I always use a good coffee, descale the machine when needed and clean it regularly. Overall, I always receive good comments about the taste and quality of the coffee it produces.

Easy to use, has an energy saver option, adjustable coffee grinder and a choice of three coffee cup sizes.

Automatic coffee frother could be better.

Workhorse of a coffee machine

 

was not a wedding present, I would consider trading it for a newer, probably cheaper machine.

Reliability, consistency, easy to use

Big heavy machine, cleaning cycle can take a long time, maintenance is a pain, dreg drawer sensors are a little faulty, causing me annoyance when I am in a rush in the morning and it won't brew a coffee till I reset the machine.
