  • Summary: Works great, froths milk perfectly every time. Very easy to clean and fill. My only concern is longevity. Hopefully this will last for 3+ years.

Sure its not perfect but its close.

  • Summary: Compare what you spend on this to your coffee shop bill and all of a sudden its a great deal. Exprelia beats my morning laziness. I used to use a standard manual style machine to make my espresso in the morning.

Error 05.

Mark Twain, Amazon
7 July 2014
  • Summary: Completely new machine. Turned it on, Error E05. Googled for that error. It is quite common. You will have to return it for service. For my money, a coffee machine that costs this much should just work. Just like all the other coffee machines that cost less than a tenth as much and never break.

Great Machine

GS1, Amazon
27 April 2014
  • Summary: I have owned this machine for two years now and had no issues. The coffee tastes great and the machine is very flexible through it's customizable settings in the menus. I regularly maintain the machine using the Phillips/Saeco Maintenance Kit CA6706/48 which has water filters, descaler, lube as well...

Really nice auto espresso and etc.

Ellis Conoley "Ellis C in CO", Amazon
24 February 2014
  • Summary: I have had the Exprelia for two months and cleaned it one time. The machine is nice and makes excellent coffee of all types I would want. It's a great compromise of water and bean storage for its size. Looks elegant in my kitchen also. I have used several types of beans without issue.

Great machine

Marcie, Amazon
24 January 2014
  • Summary: I live this machine. The espresso taste great. I am a latte girl, but the milk doesn't get as hot as I like it. Yes it has a temp control on the coffee which I have set at the highest setting but it still is a bit cool. I usually let the milk warm up a bit and then make my latte.

Love, love, love this machine!

Janeen Drinkard, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: I had a Saeco semi-automatic machine for over 10 years that we used on a daily basis. I loved it and so did everyone I made coffee for. When it finally gave out, I went on the hunt for the same machine. It was out of production, so I started looking for something else to replace it.
