Pretty good but not without some problems

 

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...

Work horse

 

Had machine at work for years. It was poorly maintained but kept on working. Every few months the forced cleaning cicycle would pop up and we had to keep pressing cancel every time we used it until someone could be bothered spending the 45 minutes...

Best Best Coffee Machine

 

This is the best coffee machine. It grinds coffee beans, froths milk and does a self clean after use. It has some draw backs but it is well and truly worth the draw backs. Biggest drawback is the tube that froths the milk must be kept extremely clean -...

Not Fit For Purpose

 

$1,000 we would have expected better from such a reputable brand. We now face another trip to the repair shop and imagine it won't be cheap if at all repairable. Clearly an item as costly as this should last more than 4.5 years and not have had so many...

Great Machine!

 

Great tasting coffee once I found good coffee beans! Easy to use. Cleaning is simple enough (I clean the brew group regularly) and descaling is easy, once I realised I needed to put a huge bowl underneath, to stop the water going everywhere! It's my...

Really happy with this coffee machine

 

I like making my own coffee but not necessarily with all the fuss of grinding and packing my own beans! This automatic machine makes it easy but still makes me feel like a home barista. Consistent flavour and adjustable strength works well. Descaled...

Great machine especially if you get it for a good price!

 

ve not paid more than this which I think is a fair price for what it does, etc. And I think a lot of the disappointment comes if you pay over $1000 for sth and then have issues. The only pain with the machine is the cleaning which is really messy. The...

Good machine but bad service support

 

User manual was not included in the box, so we didn't learnt the many controls that we could have used and missed doing a lot of the regular daily maintenance steps. The cal-clean alarm lit up after about a week in use and the water was definitely soft...

Good machine while it worked but after 4 years it is a lot of trouble

 

en the water would not come out of the coffee spout. After the last service the water is pouring out of the machine in areas it should not be coming from. For this price I would expect not to have so many issues with the machine and for it to last a...

My best mate

 

I have owned this machine for a number of years without any issues. It is important to follow the cleaning time frame for the best brew. The coffee beans you use will influence the taste so do not be afraid to move out of your comfort zone. I am...
