Hi,

I have had the Saeco Magic Comfort Automatic Coffee Machine for at least six or seven years in my house and never had any problems. I always used bottle water and always descaled it when the machine required it. I would like very much to find a similar quality or better machine smaller, more compact and which would allow me to warm up the milk separately just like the gran dama Delonghi machine.

I have seen sveral type of machines, Saeco Xelsi, Jura, delonghi gran dama, and it is very confusing and difficult to select one of the that would be equivalent to my saeco magic comfort plus but with milk froth separately.

Anyone there can recommend which machine and where I can buy it for the best price. This machine is to be used in spain, in andalucia.

thank you.

Margot, welcome to CG.  You have what is called, at least in English, a super-automatic machine -- one which, in effect, does everything for you -- as opposed to a semi-automatic, or full-automatic; you may want to read this so that we are all on the same page when it comes to terminology.  (Tiene una super-automática, en oposición a un semi-automático o totalmente automático.)

Most of us here do not use super-automatics, as they trade convenience for quality in the cup.  That said, there are some here who use them, and I'm sure someone will post here shortly.

ˇSalud!

Jason

thank you Jason for your promt reply.  You are correct, I am looking for a super automatic machine, one grind automaticly the coffee for for each cup. the rinse is dine before each cup, etc. The only thing I don't need are all the fifferent levels of intensity, some machines like Jura have 5 levlels of intensity and allows for 6 or more people to prgram their coffee. There are only two of us so the multiple level of intensity and multiple programms are not needed. What is extremely important, how easy to make the cappuccino and lates, how creamy the black regular coffee come out, how great the milk froth is an d especially how hot the coffee comes out.
