Very positive

  • Summary: The coffee machine was everything I expected it to be. This will give me time to have the original fixed. Only a O ring change. Again it is nice to a back up for our original coffee machine. Thanks for the service. My wife is happy!

Great do it all espresso machine

Jefferson Davis, Amazon
10 March 2012
  • Summary: I have been looking for an all-in-one coffee machine and finally found it! Of all the ones in the market I decided on the Talea Touch for a couple of reasons: it's more compact then others and in the past I had good experience with Saeco's smaller espresso maker that worked well for a long time. Fortunately, I didn't read these reviews before I purchased mine from a store or I would have missed the opportunity of a great purchase.

Delicious coffee

educator, Amazon
7 April 2011
  • Summary: This machine makes wonderful coffee that can be adjusted to the drinker's preferences. The only disappointments I have had are that the beans don't flow down into the hopper smoothly when it gets a little low, so you need to scoop them over manually and the water resevoir is small so it needs to be refilled frequently. Those are minor problems that are quickly overlooked once you taste the delicious espresso drinks!

gangbusters

  • Summary: This is my third Saeco machine and it is the best. Easy to operate and delivers a great product. I have it with the milk island which sure beats the steam wand for ease of use. Because of the talea's more compact size it has a smaller water reservoir and rinse/puck container, but a fair trade-off for a great machine.

So far very glad I have it

  • Summary: Maybe it is a little premature and I admit I was spooked by the negative reviews, but so far I have been very happy with Talea Touch. I bought it refurbished, not from Amazon but from an auction site (you know which one) and took out an extended SquareTrade warranty. It took little to no time to prime the water circuit, make custom adjustments to the grind and strength of the shot but it resulted in amazing espresso.

Don't buy

  • Summary: The Talea Touch makes terrific coffee and has functions that are well thought out and easy to use. The only problem is that they can't make one that works. I bought mine in Dec. 2009 from Seattle Coffee Gear. By March 2010, I had returned my third defective machine to Saeco. All three had different problems; the first leaked all over the counter when brewing (an internal hose defect), the second could not be programmed or hold a date and time; the third has a steam wand...
