Best Reviews – Philips Saeco Exprelia …Extraordinary

 

Often overshadowed by its flashier sibling, the Xelsis, the Philps Saeco Exprelia is no shrinking violet. Simple, stylish and compact, Exprelia has all of the best features of the top Saeco models without all the extra fuss.

Rubbish-do not touch it!

 

Loved it before it started telling us to empty the drip tray and beans after making 1-2 coffee when they were both completely empty; then no coffee was made. Many trips to repair centres under warranty but died lately. Asking $400 for just cleaning it...
