This is a wonderful machine and I highly recommend it.

Summary: I decided to buy a fully automatic espresso machine after visiting a friend that served wonderful coffee on his Saeco Odea Go Plus. I been using the Krups XP2070 Programmable coffee maker that brews both coffee and espresso but after seeing how easy it was to use the Go Plus I decided to switch.
Summary: Awesome machine. I now only drink homemade lattes. This machine has totally changed mine and my wife's morning and afternoon routines with the simple ease at which we can make homemade espresso drinks. Paired with a vitamin blender, it's like my kitchen has been transformed into a coffee bar.
Summary: I experience this machine at work place. I love the foamy coffee taste. Also I realized making one mug coffee will help us save big time. We are two people at home and every morning we were making a pot of coffee and just drink one or two cup. Now we enjoy our perfect brewed coffee.
Great espresso every time. Fully automatic so anyone can use it.

Summary: I love espresso and this machine makes it very simple to get restaurant quality expresso every time. This is my second Saeco machine; I also own a Vienna Plus. Over the past couple of weeks I have been able to compare the two. They both make excellent coffee, day in and day out. The Vienna Plus, which retails for much less than this machine seems to be aimed at an Espresso fanatic while this machine is aimed at someone who likes Espresso but also has several other...
Summary: I already own a Saeco Aroma that is four years old and was refurbished when I got it. That one is still going strong. I've kinda been on the lookout for a full automatic machine when I stumbled upon this. I got this because I go to work at 2 am and sometimes don't like fumbling around with the other one and figured I could use this with my eyes shut. Basically you turn this on with one button and make an espresso with another then turn it off. Easy-peachy.
Summary: I've had this about a week or so and I think it's a worthy replacement for my old Saeco Deluxe that bit the dust a couple of years ago. I got mine as a factory refurb for under $400 and it works fine, delivers a very satisfactory cup of coffee, and is smaller than my old one. Counter space is always at a premium. Its capacity is smaller, holds less water and fewer beans but I have not found this to be a problem.
Summary: This superautomatic is an excellent purchase. It makes very good espresso with a nice crema. Once you find a coffee and roast that works well I would put this up against any other auto or super auto. It is easy to clean and service and when you compare it to any other appliance the reward is greater than the work you put in to maintain it. It makes about 6 pulls of espresso before you have to empty the pucks, and usually I need to refill the water every couple of days.
