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


We bought this machine for $2000 in October 2010 and it broke down 2 years later - just outside the warranty period, of course. We had to replace the motor and grinders at a cost of $400. We figured it was worth it given the initial cost. Now, less...

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

17,000 coffees / 7 years, no repairs


What could I add to that!! I service it myself but not as often as I should, I don't clean it out as often as I should, I never turn it off, I always use filtered water and it makes great coffee. What more could you expect from a machine.

Extremely happy: reliable, easy to use, good coffee


My wife bought me a Saeco Royal Digital (virtually identical to the Professional) for my birthday in 2003. Since then it has churned out over 6500 cups of coffee without any glitches. I have used several other brands of self-grinding coffee machines...

Very reliable. Good crema. Easiest to use of any I have tried.

Cannot live with out a coffee machine

18 months old, done 2000 coffees and has not missed a beat, Wife thinks it is great because of ease of use.

Full auto, easy to use, easy to clean, no mess

To be able to steam at the same time as making coffee would be the only improvement i could ask for.
