So Happy with this machine!!

 

I have had this machine for a couple of years now and while I don't use it everyday, I do use it quite often and when I have company, we make a lot more than just the initial two cups. It makes excellent hot chocolate with using the pannarello/frothing...

Easy to use and compact. Makes great hot chocolate

A bit noisy and the tamper/measuring cup isn't the greatest

Darn good espresso

 

After my cheap Mr. Coffee espresso machine packed it in, I was in the market for something pump driven, good quality, but for a reasonable price. After doing some online research, I narrowed it down to this machine and a Delonghi. I started reading ...

Simply put, once you get past the price, this is the best machine I have ever purchased. It has a $300 price tag, but I bought mine at Costco and paid $99! The invention of the pods is genius! Put a pod in the portafilter, attach to the machine and...

The coffee is good when the machine works

 

I bought the Gran Crema machine in January 2002. Although I found the machine to be somewhat noisy, the coffee was good and the machine was quite easy to use. However, this lasted only 6 weeks. One morning, just like that, the coffee does not drip well...

Product Specifications

The Saeco Gran Crema is a machine built for simplicity and durability. A pressurized style portafilter makes the Gran Crema a great starter machine, reducing the amount of control the user needs to have over the grind setting and tamp pressure. In addition, its 5oz boiler ensures lasting steam power that is dispensed through Saeco's signature Pannarello wand to take the guesswork out of frothing and steaming. The Saeco Gran Crema is both stylish and resilient, providing café quality espresso for years to come. There are two types of portafilters: pressurized style and commercial style. The Gran Crema uses the pressurized style, which is easier to use than the commercial as it is more forgiving. The portafilter is made up of three parts, the handle, the filter holder, and the filter basket. Under the filter basket is a small spring-loaded valve that will not open until the pressure in the portafilter has built up.
