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.

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...

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...

  • Pros: This machine is elegantly designed, the best part is its all automatic. Grinds the beans, taps it in, brews, taps it out, and I can use the cup I'm going to be drinking out of instead of having to dirty up shot glasses. This device has a lotThe milk island that it comes with would be a very handy...
  • Cons: Am very dissappointed with the fact that this item is suppose to come with the Milk Island, but mine didn't. When this item was still on the Saeco product pages it stated that it is suppose to, along with the newegg site, and even the quick start instructions says "The Talea Touch comes with a Mi...

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.

Best Super Automatic Espresso Maker

George S., Newegg
30 November 2010
  • Summary: For the price (including the milk frothing island) this is a winner. Saeco makes exceptional products and they are one of the biggest espresso machine manufacturers in the world. I own a Talea Giro which is just as good, but has all manual knobs on the front instead of the digital screen/interface...
  • Pros: This particular line of espresso machines is one of the best out there. It ranks amongst the most expensive Super Automatic Espresso makers in regards to espresso quality. The milk island also ranks amongst the best in terms of milk frothing quality. This particular line is also very easy to clea...
  • Cons: The Talea Touch's only drawback, from what I've been told by resellers (I have not experienced this personally), is that the touch interface is the only reason it gets returned for servicing, which is not that often. Otherwise, its a very reliable and user friendly machine.

  • 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.

  • Summary: This machine makes very good coffee, however, I found that the plastic water reservoir does not come in and out easily. I returned the machine due to this feature . . .
