Patience needed

Julie1962, Amazon
6 January 2013
  • Summary: If you like espresso you will love it. Very quick and easy. You need patience as every time you switch it on and off it runs a cleaning cycle so you need a spare cup to catch the dirty water. I find the panarello the most annoying.

  • Summary: After reading many reviews about bean to cup machines and also the 'famous' capsule machines- I decided this was the better option for me. It was simple to set up and has made a perfect cappuccino every day since I brought it home.

Makes great expresso - capuccino could be hotter

Jack of all Trades, Amazon
25 February 2012
  • Summary: All who have had a cup from my machine have said it was great coffee! I've had my Saeco Syntia Cappuccino system for about 8 months now and am well satisfied. Agree somewhat with the below comments but accept the limitations of an automatic machine in this price range.

  • Excerpt: По капучинатору действительно надо наловчиться - сопло и трубочка должны быть обязательно чистыми без присохшего молока. И да - молока в капучинатор надо наливать больше половины.
  • Pros: Хорошая машинка!
  • Cons: Моется часто, воду доливать постоянно забываю, но зато всегда отменный вкус напитка!

  • Excerpt: Люблю пить капучино. Только для этого её и покупал. Все недостатки старался не замечать, пока в итоге не сломался дисплей.
  • Pros: Обычная кофе-машина.
  • Cons: 1.После года нечастого использования (один человек) перестал светиться зелёным цветом дисплей. Соответственно пропал и оранжевый, т.к. он образуется двумя цветами (зеленым и красным). Остался один красный. Почитав отзывы, понял, что эта проблема распространенная. Машина на гарантии, поэтому понес...
