A truly amazing coffee machine

Scotty-boi, Amazon
21 January 2014
  • Summary: Expensive, but worth every penny, as you can customise absolutely everything, from pre-brew, coffee temperature, length of milk and coffee and so much more. The milk carafe is also ingenious, milk never enters teh machine so NO cleaning required, the milk carafe also self cleans after each batch of coffees so can go straight back ion the fridge. If you like coffee, you'll love this machine!

Not So Hot...

NT101, Amazon
26 May 2013
  • Summary: I have not been able to make a hot cup of coffee with this machine. It was suggested that after making a coffee you use the steam want to heat it up! This defeats the purpose of paying all that money for an automatic machine! Also, I'm not even sure it's working properly. I'm not get any consistency, sometimes the coffee is watery and bitter and other times too strong - without changing any of the settings. I would like to return it.

Broke down after 14 months

Nicholas Francis, Amazon
1 May 2013
  • Summary: Broke down after 14 months. Now I have to go through Amazon's support hell and figure out which jurisdiction of consumer this falls. Apart from that, the machine was OK - but it never made the coffee properly hot (warm would be a better description), and the overflow tray was too small leading to having to empty it constantly.

Fantastic Unit

Bad Boy, Amazon
12 April 2013
  • Summary: I used to have the Cappuccino X2. Just upgraded to this model. I had a choice between the Gaggia academia or this one. They are both own by Philips (Saeco and Gaggia). I went for this one because of the Digital ID. It's really useful. A big improvement from the 1st Gen X2 automated coffee machine. acoustic reduction and the rinsing process is not tedious. Not cheap but this is high end machine.

  • Excerpt: Кофемашина отличная, умеет делать все возможное и невозможное. Своих денег, в принципе, стоит.
  • Pros: 0. Готовит хороший эспрессо 1. Проверенные временем технологии Saeco 2. Автоматический капучинатор, отлично взбивающий молоко 3. Качественная система автоматической очистки молочного тракта 4. Кастомизация настроек для различных пользователей
  • Cons: 1. Длительное считывание отпечатка пальца 2. Неряшливость ряда процессов приготовления, усугубляемая полированной металлической поверхностью, на которой очень заметны следы кофе и молока 3. Повышенная задумчивость по сравнению с более ранними моделями
