Works reasonably well with some inconveniences

LarryWx, philips-store.com
12 September 2013
  • Summary: The saeco syntia makes reasonably good coffee, comparable to another brand's super-automatic espresso/coffee machine we had previously. There are some issues with it, though: 1) The water container is way, way too small. Should be twice as big. 2) The bypass for adding pre-ground coffee has too small a doorway, making it almost impossible to avoid spilling grounds on the top of the machine, and the doorway won't stay open without holding it.

  • Pros: nice compact. well made and durable, easy access to water tank for refilling
  • Cons: water tank small but easy access, adjusting grind of beans did not make difference

Instructions are a bit complex to start with. Once you "get it down", then it becomes simple.

  • Summary: It would be great to be able to continue to brew when you have to dump the waste bin. Also, the waste water storage is too small.

Great Machine!

MSBerg, philips-store.com
21 February 2012
  • Summary: Nice little machine. Have had it for 2 1/2 months and make 4 to 5 cups a day...works great. Just need to drain the tray daily and rinse out the mechanics weekly. The two negative things I have are: A larger water container would be nice and the steamer hangs a little close to the back, causing me to put a couple scratches on the back when steaming milk (not a big issue). Overall...great machine. I use bottled water in it...and have not had to declassify yet..

  • Summary: Ein echtes Schmuckstück in der Küche. Funktion und Handhabung vorbildlich. Es gilt die Produktbeschreibung zu beachten dass der Wassertank max 5 Tassen enthält.

geweldig apparaat

Jan van Someren, koffiediscounter.nl
5 December 2013
  • Summary: Alles is wat mij betreft boven verwachting. De kleur is mooier dan op de foto. Volledig aluminium. Uitstekende espresso. Opschuimer werkt erg goed. Schoonmaken is zeer eenvoudig. Gecombineerd met de no-nonsense service van Koffie Discounter een aanrader!

saeco syntia red hd8837

david van den eijnde, koffiediscounter.nl
5 November 2013
  • Summary: eerste paar kopjes waren wat minder maar na een aantal kopjes eruit gehaald te hebbeen kwam de goede smaak die deze machine geeft goed naar boven en het grootste voordeel is dat saeco altijd keramische maalschijfen gebruikt waardoor de maling optimaal gemalen wordt ! ik werk zelf ook met koffiemachines en de koffie die ik van het bedrijf krijg komt zeer goed tot zijn recht dus al met al een topmachine voor absoluut niet teveel geld !
