Good reliable machine.

 

Had it for about 5 years at the office. Over 32,000 coffee. Serviced it once (new grinder, electrovalve, and clean-up, 350$). I do a wash for calcium build-up maybe 2X a year. But that's it! It works well and is easy to maintain. Only wished the "long...

A great workhorse, but now experiencing ongoing problems that we are trying to fix.

 

Our coffee machine has worked hard in our guest house for the last few years, but has been in and out of the workshop 6 times recently for various issues. Have just got it back with a new grinder and a message is coming up 'ventilate' and we can't get...

Solid Performance

 

Our workplace has had one of these for about ten years. Absolutely rock solid performance. Sure, it has had to be cleaned out every so often. I think even a couple of times it was properly serviced. But overall, easy to use, easy to maintain, and an...

This is a true work horse

 

Well this machine was in use in the company I worked for, for many years and had achieved 15000 cups of coffee. The machine then started to leak water so the company, in its wisdom decided that it should be thrown away and a new machine purchased. As...

Absolutely brilliant machine.

 

We were given the machine in 2008, it was almost brand new. We have made over 6000 coffees in machine. It has had a new grinder and power board( around $600) in repairs. We service every year or so. It makes a wonderful coffee. We buy our coffee from...

Wonderful machine as good as my commercial grade machine

 

At work, we have a wide variety of coffee machines from dripolaters through pod machines and on to barista coffee from the onsite cafe (at a cost). We lease one a Saeco Royal Professional and have done so for at least 7 years. At home I have a VBM...

THE WORST. Broke down twice in 4 years, had to chuck it

 

an 4 years (Oct 2010 to June 2014). Despite the machine having a brand new motor and grinders we have decided that cost is too much, and will have to ditch it. Utterly pathetic product, waste of money, waste of time. DO NOT BUY SAECO.

Expensive, broke down twice in 4 years, massive repair cost.

One of the Best

 

We have had our Saeco Royal for 6 years now - it is a seriously great machine! It does everything you could ask for! Lots of our friends have the Nespresso machines and I understand thats an easy machine with an OK result but if you are seriously about...

Good alternative to cafe quality

 

Working from home, good coffee on hand is essential. I love my coffee so didn't wanted something more than nespresso quality. I only ever use the manual milk frother which works great and the coffee quality always comes out nice. I only ever use the...

Quick to use, quick to clean

The espresso's are not really espresso's but have too much water. This is no prob when mixed with milk
