Summary: 4th Saeco Aroma I've had since 2000. Daily use +, saving $5 per $tarbuck$ not purchased. Figure it pays for itself in about 5 weeks or less. Excellent manual machine. Black this order matches kitchen, and easier to keep clean than I expected.
Great coffee but purchase a better quality machine for steam.

Summary: The machine makes great espresso but the steam wand is short and the attachment can fly off under the high steam pressure needed to properly foam milk. The more you use the machine, the sooner this will happen and it's almost $50 to replace the cheap, plastic attachment.
Summary: I bought the Saeco Aroma as a cheaper alternative to a Silvia about three years ago. I've never regretted the decision. I use it several times a week, and have had no problems. It makes excellent espresso and I prefer the lattes I make to most coffee shop lattes. I use good quality Italian coffee.
Summary: Before I talk about the specific espresso machine that arrived at my doorstep I want to say that I did hours of research before deciding to purchase the Saeco Aroma. I wanted a machine that could produce quality espresso drinks with user control.
Summary: I must start by saying you can get this product at the Seattle Coffee Gear website for only $200, as I did. No reason to spend and extra $150 here. I have been using this espresso machine for my daily caffeine fix for the last four months, and I have been extremely happy with it.
Summary: I bought this machine about 5 years ago for my husband for about $180. My husband used it occasionally to make himself espresso. In October 2012 we went to Italy and loved the cappuccinos we had everyday so when we returned home out came the machine and its been in use everyday since.
Summary: I fought this unit for a while, liked it better for a while longer, and now see this unit here, as I'm searching for a new one for our home. And I'll try to cut to the chase as to why I want a different espresso machine. The cup clearance is too small.
Summary: Is fabulous! Especially for the money; my husband greets me every morning with a delicious latte! We thought we would have to spend much more $$$ for a quality product. Is simple to use and good looking on our counter.
Summary: I was a little disappointed pulling it out of the box. I have owned a Saeco Via Venezia since 2003. And loved, loved, LOVED it. I used it every single day for 8 years. Unfortunately, as a result of a divorce, it got "lost" and I was forced to look for a suitable replacement without spending a...
Summary: I had this same maker for over six years before i gave it up due to a overseas move. i just recently bought a new one, had it mailed overseas and once agin cant say enough about how great and easy it is touse. Best coffee ever.
