Surprisingly still going strong.


After reading all these reviews for the Saeco I feel the need to provide my own experience. It's probably pot luck whether your machine is a lemon or an outstanding buy and not sure what makes the difference. You'd think the technology is the same for...

Very reliable with simple design


before use. Admittedly you may have to temporarily move drip tray to fit a mug under the filter to make large cuppuccino or americana but the rewards are well worth the slight inconvenience. Provided the machine is cleaned with coffee cleaner...

Very reliable with simple design


I am retired coffee machine serviceman and can say with confidence my Saeco Via Venezia which is early model SIN006 is a remarkable piece of ingenuity. The simple design without any electronics makes it a very reliable machine provided it is used...
