Saeco 00354 Aroma Espresso Machine Stainless steel


Does nice espresso

After 40 days steam wand stopped working

Good Machine


The handle is easy to insert and tighten and its good for mother she no longer has much strength left.

I've bought two of these. One for my mother, one for my brother. Personally I use a Sylvia (Rancilio) but I wanted something cheaper. This machine works very well. It is temperamental. You must grind the coffee fine, and pack it in the coffee basket or...

None worth mentioning. I've used many machines in the past, this is one of the best one's....just be patient with it and you will be rewarded with a very good espresso

Excellent little machine


Initial marks for appearance were very high! I'm super impressed that the construction is stainless steel throughout. The only plastic part is the panarello and the reservoir. My first panarello was missing a rubber piece that held it in place. I...

Water heats up fast ; Easy to use if you READ THE INSTRUCTIONS ; Very large water reservoir ; Plenty of crema (Much more than my old Delonghi) ; Stainless steel construction throughout

Stock panarello could use an upgrade ; Steam has a little water on initial use, easily shot out into water tray ; Replaced their old style buttons with cheap ones ; Needs a highly visible power light, roommate keeps forgetting to turn it off

Nice machine.. I used to own a low end Delonghi before but this one makes much nicer espressos, and it's more consistent. The key is to always keep it clean, and not let coffee stay in it and go stale because it affects the taste of future espressos...

We've had this espresso machine for almost a month now. It makes very nice espresso with lots of crema on top.. it heats up fast, the foamer works great and fast too... speedy machine, quality drinks

nothing I'm aware of as of yet

Great value


For the price this is probably one of the best espresso machines out there. It's solidly built from stainless steel and doesn't have a cheap plastic feel to it. My biggest complaint is the pressurized portafilter that comes with the machine. You cannot...

Good build quality, attractive, extremely reliable

Steam wand is too long which can make frothing difficult. The stock portafilter is garbage and needs to be replaced with a non-pressurized one if you want to really take advantage of this machine
