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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
Great Machine, upgraded from the Vienna Plus machine ( which was also great, now my son's).ease of operation and quality & variety of brews are GREAT!

Pros: ease of use, quality of brew, ease of cleaning, great looking
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.
