Summary: I have had this espresso machine for two years now and have been extremely satisfied with the quality of the product. I have used two other super-automatic espresso machines and this one is faster and quieter than the competition.

Summary: I've had this machine for 1yr, it makes a fantastic cup of coffee (I use lavazza super crema) my only complaint is that it doesn't drop the beans most of the time I need to agitate the hopper as it's grinding. I do this daily as I'm making coffee, otherwise I would rate it 5 stars
I advise you to keep looking. This is not the machine to buy.

Summary: The maintenance on this machine is just crazy. Only two people use this machine, it makes about 3 cups a day, and it seems like we constantly have to lubricate the brew group. There is also descaling on regular intervals which is a bit of a pain as well.
Summary: When the product works, it does a fine job brewing custom coffee. Maintaining the machine (adding water, tossing out used pucks, cleaning) is not a big issue. We have 3 adults making 1-2 cups each daily.
Very good, but not as good as previous Saeco machines...

Summary: Man, when this things brews a good cup of coffee it is excellent. The problem has been (in the first 6 weeks) the occasional cup of brown water with very little brewed into it. It appears to be grinder or grinder feed-related and occurs infrequently.
Summary: We use to have a Saeco Vienna that made perfect coffee and good espresso and now we have the Intelia which is better at the espresso than the coffee. I still love this and the cappuccino is great and it frothed the milk well. So far so good but we have only had it a couple months.
