Very bad value for money


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...

What a piece of expensive rubbish!


I have owned this machine for a few years now and it has spent endless time being in and out of repair. I regret buying it and for well over $3000 I would expect a much better machine. Problems with leaking, steam wand dripping, steam wand not heating,...

Terrible machine: I would not go near Saeco fully automatic coffee machines.


This is our second Saeco and will forever be our last. It is a machine geared towards a SINGLE person who has only 1 coffee a day. It worked flawlessly for two years and since then has suffered the typical 'water priming error' that afflicts so many of...

Expensive Piece of Rubbish!


mments weren't such a big deal). -The milk comes out at approx. 40-43C (just 'slightly warm') so I have to microwave my 'hot' chocolate EVERYTIME! When this 'slightly warm' milk is mixed with hot coffee, it's ok (just acceptable) if you drink it...

Absolute piece of garbage.


Worked fine up until a descale. Now it's stuck on descale. I've run step 2/2 about 5 times. Filled it with maximum water. Keeps asking me to do it... Turned it off at the wall and left for half an hour. Back into descale mode... Rang the 1300 number...

Needy machine

Brilliant machine


We are coffee crazy at home and wanted a machine that produced quality coffee and milk. For true coffee drinkers the optimum beverage temp is around 55-60 degree celcius which is just what the machine does, although some like steaming milk which we do...

Do Not Buy This Machine!


th a full refund and was then foolish enough to buy another one with exactly the same problem. "Customer (I do not) Care" told me to take it back to the same local service center....... Do not waste your money on this machine.

The best I have owned


I have had automatic coffee machines before but this is by far the best. It makes a lovely hot cappachino. A lot of different strengths and settings can be individualised for various users. If I had to pick a fault I would say the drip tray needs to be...
