  • Summary: Love the end product. I don't like that I have to take it apart to clean it weekly but it's worth the trouble.

Odea holds up well to office use

  • Summary: When I purchased the Saeco Odea Plus for our office, I was concerned by some of the negative reviews, but ultimately decided to take the plunge. I am happy to report that the Odea has become a favorite in our office, and has been reliable in its first 3 months of use. The key, I believe, is to pay attention to the error messages (out of water, full dredge drawer, etc).

Great product

  • Summary: Odea Go is wonderful. Thick crema every brew. Easy to maintain and replace coffee beans and water. Refurb unit was in brand new condition. Would buy this again. Only negative: sometimes have to flush out latte frother with steam before making espresso. Nowhere documented or explained in manual. A little annoying.

Great-tasting espresso, I wish I had bought it from the start...

  • Summary: But then again, I guess I wouldn't know how good it really is. Four stars because a) I haven't had it long enough to give it a 5 and b) I'm taking off one star for the price. I really like this machine, I was hesitant to get a super automatic because I like the process of making espresso. However, when I need multiple shots each morning for 2 drinks, this is far more practical.

Not perfect, but good enough for me

Tom "Happily Retired in LA", Amazon
16 August 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this item in January 2008 and it has very received little use. Probably too little use, and that may be as bad as too much use. Anyway, it makes a consistent quality espresso with no effort from me...and I like that. A few months back the water direction knob on top would not accurately shut off the water flow to the steam wand even though I initiated the brew cycle.

great except.....

Madelyn Grey "pendrell3", Amazon

  • Summary: My last job had a Saeco that worked great so I knew the machine itself would be awesome. It's really easy to use and set up and has some great fail safe features, like the grinder turns off if the lid is lifted. There are some crappy features though. It has a warm up cycle so if you turn the machine off and then turn it back on it runs a test cycle meaning if you have a cup ready to go it will be filled with water. This also means the drip trays fills quickly.

Excellent machine.

J. Singer, Amazon

  • Summary: I first tried the Jura Capressa ENA4 but I was disappointed by the watery finish and weak brew. Despite multiple attempts at troubleshooting, I just couldn't get the coffee from the ENA4 strong enough for my taste. Luckily, I had purchased it from a large wholesale warehouse that offers a tremendous return policy. I then purchased this Saeco Odea Giro II and I've been hooked.

  • Summary: I have the upper model Odea Giro Orange (S-OG-OG). Daily user for about a year and so far it's been awesome! Some of the Cons are: 1. small water tank to begin with. volume reduces by about 25% when using filter. 2. frequent maintenance. stock up dec ... alcifying powder. 3. coffee bean container too warm so don't fill it up. I have some recommendations/ suggestions for those who reply.
