Flash machine, very robust, press the button and get heaven in a cup. Never thought I'd get a programmable machine, but this one is worth it
Positive Product Points
Fully automatic, built in grinder. Both are fully adjustable. does everything Big steam tank and nifty frother.
Negative Product Points
programming machine a bit of a hassle, bloody big unit to have on your benchtop.
Love this machine.......for a progarmable machine, it is very nice. I love the fact I can make shots and steam away to heart's content at the same time, last dinner party I had I made 7 coffees on the trot, all perfect. none of this grind, tamp, pour, froth thing..just shot, shot, shot. Now, if I had my way, I'd still love to have a manual machine like a little Pavoni, but with this, my wife can make her mates heaps of great coffees with no dramas, and seeing as I'm in pole position in the mornings to make the morning cuppas, it makes my life much easier.. The only negative is the programming thing, I had my machine come set up, I attempted to change the shot time,but ended up just leaving it alone, it's good now, I thought I could improve on it, ah well....it's bloody good as it is...
Lucked out at the Saeco dealer, this unit had come back from a solicitor's office due to a blown fuse, ended up with a bargain at $350 AUD, plus 500 gr of excellent beans...aside from hefting it out the door, it's been all good.
