Subject: Which Saeco machines have brass boilers?
 

I assumed all Saeco machines had steel boilers, but while looking for grouphead gaskets online I noticed that most parts suppliers have 2 different Saeco grouphead gaskets: one for steel boilers and one for brass boilers.  I've searched around a bit and it seems like some of the Estro machines, perhaps even the Vapor which eventually was rebadged as the Starbucks Barista, but I haven't been able to find any definitive answers.

I'm hoping the collective knowlege here can answer my questions:

  1.  Which machines made by Saeco have/had brass boilers?
  2.  Is there any way to tell if a particular machine has a brass boiler without taking it apart?

Thanks.

According to Seattle Coffee Gear, the Aroma and Magic Cappuccino semiautos both have steel boilers. Whole Latte Love has detailed specs about most of their machines; you may be able to find an answer there if you do some digging.

as far as I know, older Saeco machines had brass boilers, recent production is 100% steel boilers (actually developed for Saeco...)
Ciao, Pietro
