Summary: I'm not going into further detail already available online, but this is the state of the art in the search for consistently great espresso. The build could be made from stronger materials, but it couldn't be easier to use and clean.
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.
