Great Coffee & Easy to use

 

I took a risk and purchased a refurbished unit from Graysonline for less than half the new price. The unit was perfect. Just like brand new and the machine performs brilliantly. I used this site to read reviews and then decided on this unit so I...

I love this machine!

 

I would marry this machine if I could. I wake up early mornings and with a few presses of the buttons I have hot coffee without blinking an eyelid. The machine is sleek and stylish and unlike most bulky coffee machines it fits snuggle in the corner and...

Quick and easy to use, reasonable price, great compact size

Cleaning machine is a bit of a pain.

OK

 

My wife and I purchased this machine as a Christmas present for ourselves. So far no issues. After months of research through this site and watching web videos we decided to take the punt and we are glad that we settled with the Syntia Focus. The one...

Just try and get replacement parts!!

 

Had mine 5 months the silver paint is coming off the elbow and steam wand. There are no parts to replace it after 4 calls to and fro the Saeco customer service centre. TVSN have agreed to take the applicance back for a full refund. Small water capacity...

Simple smart and good looking

 

This is a compact size, very smart looking, and very easy to operate, fill, clean, care for. This replaced my Sunbeam Intuitive and I cannot believe they do the same thing, dinosaur versus sophistication. I adore the Saeco. I like the coffee hopper,...

The steam wand - going to follow the advice found here in other reviews

Perfect :)

 

Just bought my Syntia Focus yesterday. Bare in mind it's my first coffee machine. But I did used to work in a coffee shop making coffee manually. The espresso produced was very good. I haven't needed to adjust any settings at all so far. (ie grinding)....

Energy efficient, inexpensive, looks pretty

Doesn't come with frothing milk jug, coffee bean compartment not very big

Very impressed with my new purchase

 

I was looking to upgrade from a Manual Sunbeam Coffee Machine that I'd had for years (and was starting to play up a little). I had been looking at many options and after months of researching I walked in to Harvey Norman with the intention of...

User Manual easy to follow and seems to have most information required to help make changes. With good beans and the right settings it makes a great espresso shot at the press of a button.

Small water and waste capacity - I don't really like the Pannarello, (and as mentioned above froth without it) but for thos that like bubbly and frothy milk you will probably like it - I prefer mine dense and find it easy without the Pannarello...
