cant live without a coffee machine


If makes the perfect coffee and it is so easy to use. It is not always easy to clean and the only fault I have with it is when i have given it a big clean and descale etc the light is still staying one but it still makes a great coffee.

Not bad


The machine is making a so nice coffee at all the time but it is now leaking water and needs service. It is out of warranty and I need to check its service. I haven't contacted the service yet but I'm worried if it is expensive. Other than this the...

No regrets getting it second hand


Didn't pay much for our Saeco Talea ring coffee machine. The previous owner said that it didn't pour full espresso anymore. All I had to do is go into the settings and tell it to put more water through for that coffee type. It's been a trooper since...

Saeco Talea, a new species of lemon tree !!


If you buy a Ferrari you can obviously afford high maintenance . The Talea is the same. It requires A LOT of maintenance . I recommend one to either of 2 groups people ; Saeco technicians and coffee / coffee machine fanatics , otherwise STAY AWAY . Buy...

required regular repairs


cult enough, the staff were unhelpful and unfriendly. I sent them feedback regarding this experience, and they came back with a defensive email justifying their processes. So we found a local repairer ourselves. They've since advised that a valve needs...

This Is An Expensive Unreliable Machine. It Needs Professional Repair Every 3 Months


Bought January 13, 2013, had it in for repairs 4 times so far. Very poor quality badly supported. I will not buy any Saeco product again.
