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.
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.
Tasty espresso; a hint; probably wouldn't buy this again.

Summary: UPDATE: (10/15/14): This review began as 5 stars; I am now beginning to regret this purchase. I don't think I'd buy it again if I had the choice. Having said that, it DOES produce a tasty espresso.
Summary: This product is most suitable for individuals who have a significant amount of time and patience, when it comes to their coffee or expresso. The machine requires constant maintenance and the buyer should be prepared to regularly address the water level without a clear indication it may require more,...
Summary: C'est ma 2eme Saeco et toujours pas déçu. Peut être le prix quand même que je trouve excessif. Le café est excellent à la condition d'avoir un bon grain fraîchement torréfié. Comme pour la 1ere machine ne pas oublier les entretiens qui sont important pour la durée de vie de la machine.
Summary: mes parents possèdent la saeco talea ring, je voulais un modèle comparable, moins encombrant avec un réservoir à café plus grand afin de pouvoir mettre un sachet entier de café en grain : tout bon !
