Philips Saeco HD8750

I recently bought this to replace my beloved Nespresso machine. I wanted to use whole beans instead of those little, expensive (delicious) pods as my family goes through more than half a dozen/day. I am not a complete espresso freak but I do love a...

Saeco Intuita

I bought this machine (HD8750) from The Good Guys 3 years ago. A mate of mine used to have a mobile espresso business and he helped me with the 'little things' that a novice like me didn't know. To be honest, without his help, I don't know how long it...

Philips Saeco HD8769

After doing quite a lot of research about the various bean2cup machines, we settled on the Saeco range. De'Longhi were another option but the feature set for the Philips seemed to just nudge it ahead for us. We weren't convinced by very mixed reviews...

Saeco HD8761

Got this to replace my Saeco HD8836 that had finally died. The new machine holds more water, more coffee beans,holds more coffee waste than the other machine and is also smaller. Coffee is as good, if not better. Initially I thought there was a problem...

Saeco Intelia

We wanted a coffee machine with a bean grinder built in and this Saeco was in our budget. We were happy with the results for the first year of use. However, despite following the manufacturer's maintenance tips and prompts (from the screen) our machine...

Saeco Exprelia Evo

Double boilers. Yes! One can do an amazing amount of fine tuning on this machine and once committed to memory, a consistent cup is virtually guaranteed. You can also tailor your drink on the fly for the one off cup. The final product is still dependent...

Saeco Via Venezia

I've tried 'em all, traveled to France and Italy, etc. Not only do you get the real "Crema" on your espresso (that golden coffee froth at the top of the espresso cup), but the frother wand is so strong and powerful it could steam a gallon of milk. Just...

Saeco Magic Combi Cappuccino

I think that this is a mediocre espresso machine. The water passes through the coffee grounds so fast that it really tastes more like a cup of coffee than a cup of espresso. The steamer works fine though if you prefer cappuccino or lattes.

Saeco Via Veneto

As I mentioned above, this machine is an excellent value. I originally bought this 4 years ago, and it still going strong. It makes a pretty decent espresso shot, although I've been trying to figure out how to pull a God shot on this machine. I...

Saeco Minuto

Easy to use. Purchased only yesterday & not happy! I used the coffee beans that I'm used to and using them with this machine, well for some reason makes a bitter coffee. I want to know why? I was going to purchase a Brevile. I wish I did Not happy

Saeco Vienna

This machine never worked right starting just a few weeks after purchase. It would whistle when it made coffee like the boiler (guessing the name of the part where it superheats the water to make coffee) had a leak in it when under pressure. It broke...

Philips Xelsis Evo HD8953

Coffee is good, as it is mostly dependant on the beans you use. However, when it comes to ongoing maintenance it is atrocious. It constantly requires the drip drawer and the grinds to be emptied and washed... every second use!!! Descaling is required...

Owned this for 8 years. Made over 2000 coffees when the boiler gave in. Had it repaired, but same issues soon after. Had it repaired a second time, then the grinder packed up. Decided to get rid of it. Great while it worked, but once trouble kicked, it...
