Saeco Talea Giro Plus super automatic espresso machine
13 February 2012
Summary: I love this coffee maker. I have one in Canada and ordered another for my winter vacation home. I would recommend this machine to anyone who likes to have a fresh cappuccino or espresso within seconds. Always hot and fresh !
Summary: Before buying this machine, I looked around for a long time, and was not very impressed by the mixed reviews out there. However decided to buy it anyway since i was tired of making coffee with my old manual espresso maker and also tired of buying coffee in the morning from chain stores, also my job...
Summary: We loved it, but it died after about two years. And, of course, warranty expired. Brew group got stuck, there is a link on the web on how to fix it, took about an hour - you have to basically take it apart. But it wouldn't work anyway..
Summary: Expensive product, Saeco Cynthia coffee machine, I purchased this machine in August 2010, very limited use, 1 to 2 cups per day. Machine broke in January 2011, and I had to send it our of State to repair. Te Company paid for all the charges, but 2 1/2 wks without coffee major inconvenience.
Summary: I researched super automatics for quite some time before purchasing this model from Saeco. Pronounced 'sai-eh-co' link: [...] The machine is easy to use in the morning when you aren't awake yet. Read the manual once when you get the product and you will be happy.
Summary: I can't believe I spent almost $1000.00 on this piece of junk. I used it one time and it ceased to function. I did everything the instructions said. No help. I tried to find online help. No luck. Don't waste your money. Avoid it like the plague. I give it a negative 5 stars.
Summary: What a dissapointment. I have had the this machine for 5 months. I have sent it back for 1 month for repairs and it is broken again. When it works it makes a nice espresso. Frustrating calling customer service all the time. Would rather have my $$ back and buy something else.
Summary: Bought mine at costco, great deal. Works well, Takes a little figuring out, but now is old hat. I agree it could hold a bit more coffee and water for this thirsty americano, but the output is very tasty.
Summary: I have had this machine for over 3 months. I use it every morning and it has worked very well! No problems at all. Good looking machine. You do have to add water and empty grounds weekly or bi-weekly (depending on use), but that is expected for any machine.
