Endless problems...terrible service


Bought this machine and initially loved it....nice style, easy coffees (especially if using the smaller tubes which make hotter milk), good coffee. However, it started making random coffees or pouring out hot water/steam..without any button being...

Worst coffee machine ever and terrible customer service!


Absolute waste of money. The temperature of the coffee and milk doesn't get above 50 degrees so when we have to warm it further in the microwave. When we rang customer service they basically couldn't care less didn't want to help and were just laughing...

We love our Saeco Xelsis coffee machine (s)!


We had a series of dud coffee machines (Delonghi - don't get me started!!) before we switched brands and came to Saeco. We LOVE our coffee machine so much. It never breaks down (unlike the aforementioned brand) and makes fab coffee, fast and hot! Loved...

Saeco Xelsis


Purchased mine in 2010, what a great machine with auto programming & manual programming for up to six people. I adore my Saeco Xelsis. I keep it clean both internally & externally. Yes does make some spatters but that's expected during the process. But...

Easy to use & good looking machine

Small holding for rinse water

VALUE = Nuisance


BIG DISLIKES: * spend more time doing stuff for the machine than getting coffees. * wastes a lot of water. It uses about 1/2 the water tank in the self-clean and the other 2 or 3 cups for a coffee. * water and milk spits everywhere * high cleaning...

Sales pitch, size and colour

Efficiencies, wasteful of water, beans, power and time

Bought this machine after having previously owned a different saeco machine for 9 years and it was fabulous. So disappointed with this machine. The box was missing the cleaning tablets and water filter, did a live chat on the saeco site and was told to...

Good looking machine and does make a nice cup of coffee

Expensive. Everything is too small, dip tray, milk jug, water container. Makes a mess when dispensing milk.

I LOVE My New Xelsis in My Kitchen ... Perfect Cuppa Every Time!


How wonderful to wake up knowing there is a great coffee waiting to be drunk. The machine is warmed up and ready to go thanks to the timer. The instruction manual is easy to follow, with photos. I'm glad I read it, as I would have stuffed my machine...

Reliable, clear instruction manual, variety of options available, easy to program, automatic rinsing, easy to maintain, helpful customer service team

Milk carafe spatters when using finer tubing, no stainless steel milk carafe included to heat milk with the steam wand.

worst coffee ever and bad customer service


Had for two weeks and tried 5 suppliers of beans. Taste like it been drained through my socks! Have tried Evey grinding setting as well as Evey setting on the pouring spout. Dreadful. When stirred coffee is cold. I am not microwaving at this price....


horrible taste, cold milk, worst service
