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.

Not perfect, but good enough for me

Tom "Happily Retired in LA", Amazon

  • 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.

  • 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.

A fairly good auto espresso machine with a few caveats

bogrod, Ebay
3 May 2009
  • Summary: After owning the Saeco Odea Go for roughly seven months, I figured it was time to offer my viewpoint on this espresso machine. Originally, my searching started at the more expensive fully automatich espresso machines. It's fairly easy to put down in the area of $1K for a fully automatic machine. I was looking for something that was a little more moderately priced.

A fairly good auto espresso machine with a few caveats

bogrod, epinions.com
1 May 2009
  • Summary: Bottom line is that this machine is fairly good for an entry level fully automatic espresso machine. The drawbacks to the unit really do not outweigh the advantages.
  • Pros: Affordable, build quality is good for the price, coffee that is made is very good.
  • Cons: Machine requires a user who does not mind regular cleaning.

Great value for an automatic expresso machine

R. Sammons, Amazon
23 April 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this machine when I returned from Asia as a replacement for the Saeco we had there. This model is the Cooper Mini of automated machines. It provides all of the quality of a Saeco automated system without the unnecessary features that drive cost on most other units. It performs consistently well making espresso or a full cup of European style coffee. It is an attractive appliance with modern styling that fits equally well in a traditional style kitchen.
