5-0 out of 5 stars Pulls perfect espressos shots every time
I was a little dubious about spending so much for a coffee machine, but this little coffee robot is like a new member of the family.When I go to Starbucks, I get a decent double espresso one out of every ten or so times.This wonder pulls them just right every time and fits under the cabinets.The smooth stainless steel exterior matches some other kitchen appliances and was a big deciding factor for me since I wanted a machine with some style.

The reconditioned one I received had no scratches or other problems, and seems to be running fine!

5-0 out of 5 stars No need to go to Starbucks anymore
I purchased the Italia at Starbucks 2 years ago (for a lot more money) and have been using it daily.This machine is easy to use, and easily adjusts ground to water ratio to get the perfect espresso. Frothing works great.The newer model has a swivil steam wand that can rotate in and out and not just left to right like this model AND an additional rack on the top cup warmer to keeps cups from falling off (not worth the additional cost-I never had a cup fall off).I save money every day by not buying a Venti from Starbucks since I can make a more consistent quality coffee myself.ENJOY! ...

With the push of a button, the machine grinds coffee beans without burning them, tamps the ground coffee into the brew group, brews a cup of espresso, and then dumps the spent grounds into a container--all in about 30 seconds. For creating a cappuccino or latte, there's a hot water/steam wand with a milk-frothing attachment, and there's only a 10-second delay from brewing to steaming.

1-0 out of 5 stars Extremely unhappy
I am extremely unhappy with this product. It did work well for the first year of light use, but since then it has been a nightmare. 2 times in the shop well over $100.00 at each wack. Parts for it seem to be very hard to get as it takes well over a month for the shop to get it. Communications with factory rep and parts department are almost impossible to get through.
Stay away from this item, it is not worth the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Feature Packed, Low Price
We own the Vienna de Luxe and find it very easy to use. I would compare the espresso this machine makes with that of what I get at my local coffee bar. It is well assembled and thought out in its design. Particular interest was the fact that it gives you instant steam (what Saeco calls Rapid Steam). I like the fact it makes perfect espresso, cappuccino and lattes. I drink mainly espresso though. Just pour in your favorite coffee beans and press a button. It will start grinding the coffee beans, dump the ground coffee into the brew system, and presto - out comes your espresso. And it's not messy! It takes about 25 seconds to brew a shot of espresso from start to finish. The price is a little high, but it's worth it. It saves me money in the long run becuase I don't have to spend $3.00 at the coffee bar anymore!

3-0 out of 5 stars In Shock and Awe
I found out that a local Bath Bed and Beyond (Rockville, Maryland) carried this same machine and was allowing customers to use this machine in their store. I loved the expresso that it produced and the Saceo Vinnea is a big step up from my $200 Starbuck's Saceo Barista. However, I was shocked that it is mostly made of plastic and that the buttons have a flimsy cheap feel to it. I did expect the plastic to have a better feel; so it was dissapointing to me. Other than the lack of a cup warmer, its short frothing tool, and its plastic body it makes a good espresso. I could not over look its plastic body and and this price I think that you can do a better with Starbuck's Saceo Italia. It cost $530 and it has better buttons , a metal body, a cup warmer,a ground coffee bypass and, a better frothing wand. In my opinon if you are going to spend $600 on an espresso machine this is not the one to spend it on.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Step Up...
After buying coffee makers sometimes twice per year, and given that my recent marriage created a "she likes her coffee very strong, and I like mine regular" issue, I decided to invest the $600 in this machine. It is truly incredible (so far...). We've had it for about 4 months now. The striking features are the ease of use, quickness of making a custom cup of coffee (less than a minute), and it's heavy usage. We make 10-20 cups per day often. The coffee that comes out of this machine is truly unbeleivable. It has a slightly creamy taste, and I have never tasted coffee this good - even at a Starbucks. We have tried different types of beans (even Sam's Club's Kona beans are great..). The coffee is so good that some of my 19 year old's son's friends have taken up drinking coffee and come here often just for ours. The machine has had no problems (knock on wood...). It performs magnificently. The only down sides are the water reservoir which must be manually filled (probably holds enough for 4-6 cups depending on the size you choose). Also, you must remember to empty the grounds or you can get a mess and have to open it up and remove a large mechanism to clean it out. It does hold a lot of grounds in it's disposal basket, incidentally. The nice features about it are the fact that it can make one of two cups of coffee at the same time, and you can adjust both the amount of coffee (for the size of cup) and the strength of the coffee easily. We really don't use the steam/frothing mechanism so I can't comment on it. I would recommend this maker to anyone. There do seem to be a lot of mixed reviews on the internet related to the long term stability of this machine, but I have seen reviews posted by individuals who claim 20 cups of coffee a day for years out of this model. I suspect the real issue is taking care of it, not letting it run out of water often, and keeping the grounds cleaned out. But I will see over time. As I state, we've only had it for about 4 months, but so far it performs like a Sherman tank...

1-0 out of 5 stars We are going to make a planter out of IT!!!
Do not buy this machine. For a "super-automatic", it the most high maintenance machine I have ever seen. It made great coffee for about 9 months and then the grinder broke. Luckily it was under warranty, although I had to negotiate with Saeco to actually get it fixed under warranty. It cost $50 to send it back and another $40 for a temp espresso machine for my husbands espresso addiction. We got it back and one month later it quit working again. So once again it got sent back to Saeco and it really hasn't worked right since. It is not worth the cost. REALLY. To spend this much money and only have it work for a year is ridiculous. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Great product - UNTIL IT NEEDS SERVICE
I purchased this machine two years ago, after extensive research on espresso machines (which you are probably doing now, if you're reading this). I decided specifically on the vienna "superautomatica" and felt justified in when it ran strong for the first year. We're talking 2 cups a day for both my husband and myself, I drink mine with two shots and he drinks his with three, so 10 shots/day - IF we didn't have company! The machine makes great espresso, a nice crema, easy to clean, yada yada yada. All the stuff I thought was important.

Then one day the machine didn't heat up. I'm waiting... and waiting... and never again does that handy blinking light tell me my machine is heated up and ready to brew. No big deal, we were bound to break it with all our "espresso drinking". I was just glad I had sent in the special card that extended my warranty to 18 months. We're in the 16the month. Cutting it close. I'll just call the 1-800 # provided in my paperwork. And I'll call again and again. And still I will not speak to a real person but rather leave message after message to be returned by nobody.

So, here we are after the warranty's expiration. No biggie. I'm not broke and I LOVED this machine. I'll get it fixed, right? Nope. I live in a fairly populated area and yet there are no repair facilities for Saeco machines. Okay, I'm handy enough... pretty sure it's the heating element, I'll just order parts!! Nope. After much research, I have realized that the only people who repair OR provide parts for Saeco machines are... you guessed it! The people on the other end of that mysterious 1-800#.

The moral of the story is: before you buy this WONDERFUL machine (or any other) from this RESPECTED company (or any other) do a handy little internet search for repair facilities and availability for parts for that partical brand. Otherwise you'll be buying ANOTHER wonderful machine every couple years!

5-0 out of 5 stars thinking about buying a second before I can't get another
I am confused about all the bad rap this machine is getting. I decided to wait until I had my machine for about 2 yrs to give a review based on all the bad reviews...I love my machine. I don't like Peets coffee or Starbucks and have found that Peets coffee does give the machine trouble, but goes away as long as you clean the machine (which I do on a weekly basis). Where I live we had a little coffee shop that I feel had the BEST coffee (Mr. Espresso), when it closed, I tried Peets, etc. Since, I have purchased Mr. Espresso coffee beans and have NO problems with my machine and feel that my espresso are consistant and almost as good as my old coffee shops. I would recommend this machine to anyone and am thinking about buying a second (thinking they will stop making this model).

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Satisifed
I've owned my Saeco Superautomatica for almost five years and am very satisfied. I make about a pound of coffee a week, or a little more, so I'm probably a typical home user. I clean it every week and use a tank cleaning solution monthly. It does use more coffee than a drip coffeemaker but it produces a much better cup of coffee. I seldom use the steamer/frother feature, so really can't comment on it. I replaced the pressure tank this year (about $100 parts and labor). That's the only service it has needed. I would certainly buy another and would recommend it to friends.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful coffee Easy use
I have a simple morning routine. I go into the kitchen, turn on my Saeco Vienna, wait about a minute and turn press a single button to make wonderful coffee. Some people have had problems with the machine but it's ease and simplicity are fantastic. I put water in it about twice a week and coffee about once a month, and apart from cleaning out it's coffee grounds disposal there is no other messing about. I've had many coffee machines before and trying to grind beans and tamp the shot first thing in the morning is just not what I want to be doing. I was hesitant to spend the extra money at first on this v's a normal non automatic machine but once I've been down this track there is no heading back.
It's simply the best and easiest coffee machine I've ever owned.

5-0 out of 5 stars This Does It All.... except feed the dog
After spending weeks reading reviews and comparing features on SuperAutomatic espresso machines, I picked the Saeco Royal Exclusive.

The SuperAutomatics grind the beans, tamp the grounds, adds the amount of water you have preprogrammed, and disposes of the used grinds in a box inside the machine. And all of this is done with just a push of a button.

When you first get the machine you set 2 leavers. One is for course to fine grind. The other leaver is for the amount of coffee grinds to be dispensed. Then you program the amount of water (volume) for your espresso, café Americano, or whatever. You can program each of the 3 buttons for different water volume amounts. Obviously, the more water, the weaker the drink. Tip: Use the factory default settings first. Then adjust the various settings to your personal taste.

I do not use the frother because I have a separate froth machine, Froth-au-lait. So, I do not know how well that part works.

This machine has a digital display that will warn you if the water tank is empty, or the coffee beans need to be added, or the brew group is out of place, or it needs decalcifying, and much more. You and even set the temperature of your drink and the time you want it to go into stand-by mode. It even has a cup warmer. The features on this machine are just too numerous to list.

Cleaning is a snap. Every couple of days just slide out the drip tray and dredge box, where the used grinds are dumped, and rinse them. About once or twice a week remove the brew group and rinse it. Decalcify about every 3 to 4 months depending on your water hardness.

I was unsure about spending that much money for such a machine, but I am glad I did. I love it! And thanks to Aabree.com for all their help.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good
Just to start off, this is a good machine. It is not overpriced, and has a lot of features. It can produce the same quality espresso as any other super automatic in this price range. It is no better than any of the machines from the Saeco Viena Series, and no worse then Jura Capresso's S9. The crema coming out will be EXACTLY the same.

Now my complaints - the housing on this machine is awful. It is basically painted plastic which easily chips off. Next, like all the other Saeco machines, all of the parts are made from plastics or cheap metals, which reduces the reliability significantly. This does have the best record in terms of reliability in the Saeco line, but still is lacking. The automatic frother is nice, but produces bad quality foam. The panarello want is SO BAD!! When compared to froth produced by a commercial quality machine, you can taste and feel the difference. The nice thing about the panarello wand is it injects the air for you, but produces lower quality. Again the comparison comes up between quality versus ease of use. That is one of the major things that one should go over before buying a super automatic.

The semi automatic machines produce higher quality espresso, and when equipped with a commercial style steamer, the frothing quality is much higher. So as super automatics go, this is a pretty good machine. The Gaggia Syncrony has about the same features (you can buy the cappacinotore attatchment for the gaggia for automatic frothing) and is 600 dollars less. It is a good machine, but is comparable to other machines that are less money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Crema Coffee
As my mother said to me, You spent [$$$] on a espresso maker!" Ah, but it is worth every penny. Have you been to europe? Italy or Germany? While there did you try the Espresso/coffee at a resteraunt? Then you would know that coffee in America does not compare to european espresso/coffee. Look no further. It's the creama. Creama? Yes, Creama, that thick foam at the top of a european coffee. This espresso machine gives rich, flavorful and powerful espresso with creama.

Advantages in this machine over others are the digital display which makes setup and maintanence easy. Adjust the strength and courseness of your coffee with manual levers. The entire machine is automatic from grinding to disposing of your grinds.

So if you long for european coffee and espresso as I do, you will spend a little more money to get this great machine. ... Read more

Made in Italy, this 1,250-watt machine eliminates the fuss of creating espresso and espresso drinks at home by automating the entire process. It grinds coffee beans without burning them, tamps the ground coffee, brews, and then dumps spent grounds into a container--all in about 30 seconds. For creating a cappuccino or latte, there's a hot water/steam wand with a milk-frothing attachment, and there's only a 10-second delay from brewing to steaming. This model also permits precise adjustments for variables such as water hardness, water temperature, the pre-brewing process (moistening coffee grounds), the amount of coffee ground per dose, and the type of coffee (American style, medium strength, or espresso). The LCD screen warns when the water system requires descaling, which can then be performed automatically, as can the rinsing of the coffee-dispensing system.

Selection for one or two cups is also possible, as a button allows different-size cups--up to 10 ounces--to be filled; a "standby" function saves energy; and English, Italian, German, Portuguese, Spanish, or French can be displayed on the screen. For safety, the machine shuts off if the grinder runs out of beans or the water tank is empty (the screen specifies problems). The machine measures 15 inches high, 13 inches wide, and 13-1/4 inches deep; weighs 19 pounds; rotates on a swivel base; and, with a gleaming, taupe plastic exterior, looks great on the counter. The bean hopper holds about 12-1/2 ounces (8.8 ounces of espresso beans are included), the removable, transparent water tank holds 57 ounces, and the grinder adjusts from fine to coarse. For cleanup, parts remove easily. The machine comes with an exceptionally thorough and clear instruction booklet and video and carries a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Great, when it works
I've had the machine for a little over a year now. It makes great coffee, so I'm even more frustrated when it is broken again. I follow the cleaning instructions religiously and make an average of 2 cups a day. After 3 months I had the first brew unit block that couldn't be resolved with the help of support. So I had to send the machine in. The machine has been at Saeco or in transit for more than 2 months and I have paid about $120 in shipping to get it fixed. The machine broke 2 weeks ago for the 3rd time with exactly the same problem. I'm currently waiting for a response from their customer service. Based on other reviews it seems hit or miss if you get a high quality machine or a lemon like mine.

4-0 out of 5 stars Update on my previous review
I have owned the Vienna Deluxe for over a year now. I have not had any problems with it. I liked it so much that I bought one for my girlfriend for her birthday.

It appears from some of the postings, that if the machine breaks down, the customer service is not so good. Since I have not dealt with customer service I have not had any experience with them. I do know however that when I called them to ask a question their office was closed on the weekend.

All in all if you take care of this machine it should work just fine.

Make sure before you use the machine, that the water reservoir has water, grounds are emptied and you have enough beans in the hopper.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cappuccino's so good you will be spoiled
Having owned regular Espresso machines from Solis, I was skeptical about the so called SuperAutomatics. But I hated the mess the regular espresso machines made (grinding the coffee, dumping the grounds etc). I was also skeptical whether you could tune the superautomatics to the point where you could get a good shot of espresso since thats the most important part of a good drink.

I got the Saeco Superautomatic and I was very pleased with it, there are 18 grind settings so you can get the right grind. A good shot of espresso should take between 12-14 seconds. If it comes too fast its weak or too slow its bitter. With the Saeco you can adjust it, you can also adjust the amount of coffee that comes out.

The Steaming wand has this plastic sleeve called the Panerello, it really helps in getting the thick velvety foam thats so important to making a good Cappuccino. As any true Cappuccino lover knows you don't pour milk and scoop foam over it like all the dummies at Starbucks do (they do need lots of training, all they do is push buttons and act yuppy), you actually scoop the foam and the milk combined to make a creamy cappuccino.

There are some minor annoyances, you will find that the water reservoir tends to be a bit small and you have to check to make sure you have not run out of water. It also makes a fairly loud noise when its making the espresso (the tamping and the dumping etc).

Check the following each time you make an espresso:

1) Check the container holding the used coffee grounds to see if its time to dump it, it can get full pretty quickly depending on how much you are using the machine.
2) Check the water level
3) Check the coffee beans to make sure there are enough.

I liked it so much I bought one for my sister, she likes it a lot as well. We use coffee from a private roaster, anything other than Charbucks coffee would work fine. Peet's is a good alternative.

Please buy Fair Trade coffee, that way the poor farmers are getting a decent price. Did you know that coffee farmers get 10-12 cents for every dollar, and the chains like Starbucks who also roast and sell the coffee make 80-85 cents per dollar.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Spend this much- not worth it.
This machine worked great for the first 10 months we had it and it has been downhill ever since. After two repairs, it only works when it wants to now. It is extremely high maintenance for a "machine that does it all for you". All the parts have to be cleaned several times a week and it's very easy to get coffee grounds in the water supply of the brew group.

First the grinder went (duh- isn't the grinder the first to always break!) and luckily it was still under warranty. I thought the customer service was really friendly and helpful until I was told me it was my fault for not maintaining it properly. Of course, the grinder maintenance wasn't even in the book that came with the machine so they finally fixed it. But is cost me $40 to send it back and another $30 for a Melitta machine for my caffiene addicted husband.

Now the brew group is acting up. For a $700, it should last longer than this and not be so frustrating. There are just too many things to go wrong on this machine. Boy I sound whiney, but I have spent HOURS cleaning the machine and trying to trouble shoot it, not to mentioning cleaning the mess it makes all over the counter when it isn't working.

1-0 out of 5 stars disaster
after my last review they wrote me a nasty letter. they then fixed the machine and it lasted another 9 months and died completely. the customer service person tried to help and then told me it was out of warranty. 14months total is crazy for a machine this expensive. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars THREE YEARS AND GOING STRONG!
I purchased my Saeco Classico in April of 2001 after getting hooked on espresso on a trip to Europe. I chose to buy a pump driven machine because of a bad experience with a cheap pumpless electric model. Since then, I have had consistently high quality espresso daily for three years and counting. This is a well built machine from a leading manufacturer that I recommend most highly.

The steam (while not as powerful as commercial machine) is more than adequate for home use and allows you to go straight from steam to espresso. It really works as advertised. This machine is also built in a semi commercial fashion in that each part is replaceable and Saeco USA will send you any part you need. (I have not needed any to date.)

This machine also does very well with espresso pods. You may be a die-hard coffee grinder and if so ignore, but I strongly recommend pods (made from high quality espresso of course) if you are into daily use. They are tamped perfectly, are mess free, are packaged to stay fresh for along time, and give you a highly consistent draw each and every time. This machine, with Segafredo or Lavazza pods, has consistently produced espresso shots with a rich crema and mellow roasted flavor that is much better than most professional products I have had in the past three years. If you buy pods in bulk they are currently only about $.35 each.

When this machine finally gives out, I will definitely buy another if it is still available. It's a BIG bang for the buck.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Purchase
About three years ago I purchased a Krups Novo espresso maching and I've been dissapointed with it's operation almost from the first day. Early on it took about 15 to 20 minutes to foam a picture of milk for two cups. There were times that steam stopped and, what I believed happened, a vapor lock developed and I had to prime the system before the steam started again. This may happen two or three times during foaming. About a year later nothing seem to work properly and I took it to an approved/official Krup service shop. I found that the heater and both thermostats had failed. It took four months for the service shop to get the necessary parts. The service personnel said that this was typical for Krups. After repairs the machine worked for a while but, again, it was slow. Then it started leaking which were repaired. After about eight months the heater failed again. I wrote to the CEO of Krups with my complaints but never received an acknownedgment of my letter. Subsequently I junked the Krups machine and bought the Saeco 30054 Classio machine. At the very beginning I was surprised how fast it foamed the milk, about three minutes, and how much the coffee flavor had improved over the Krups. So far after about two weeks of service I'm very pleased. My only complaint, although minor, it that the water reservoir is awkward to replace after filling. I've resorted to filling the reservoir with a pitcher without removing it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Happy Ending
The first Saeco Classico that I received was defective. The brew head would only produce a few dribbles of water (it took 60 seconds to get 1 ounce of water directly from the brew head when the brew switch was engaged). Dispite this bad first impression, I went ahead and gave a second machine a try. Mostly due to the fact that a good Italian friend of mine has had a Classico for several years and it has proven to be a steady, reliable performer under daily use. I am happy to say that the replacement arrived quickly and performed beautifully!

It heats up quickly, the espresso is just the right temperature, and it produces plenty of steam from the frothing attachment. Almost straight out of the box, it produced shots of espresso that were half crema! It seems to perform best with a finer grind of coffee.

I was a bit leary about the "Rapid Steam" feature. I don't understand how this machine can go instantly from steam to brewing and not burn the coffee with water that is at too high of a temperaturefor proper brewing. So, I actually put an instant read thermometer in the cup and discovered that the coffee actually comes out at just the right temp...

5-0 out of 5 stars Love this machine!
I am very happy with this espresso machine, which I received as a gift. It is sturdy, aesthetically attractive, easy to use and maintain, and makes heavenly coffee, with a thick, rich crema and not a hint of bitterness. It heats up fairly quickly, and is ready to use within one minute of turning it on. It comes with a video and instruction book which are quite helpful for getting started. I can highly recommend this machine to anyone looking for good value and quality in an Italian espresso machine. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars so far, so great...
it's been a month, but a well-used month.
easy to use.
good crema and esspreso flavor.

now we're nearly spoiled: our own brew's better than even from Peets or from Starbucks (we'll resort to Starbucks when a Peets joint is not near).

our only feeling is how long can this last...we'll keep up maintenance, by cleaning & descaling, and keep our fingers crossed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great espresso and a solid machine
I've had this machine for 2.5 years and use it every day (sometimes a couple of times/day). It makes great espresso, and I have had no problems. My only complaint is that it's a bit noisy. The only maintenance is de-scaling a few times per year, but I imagine all pump-driven espresso machines would need this. I've used pods and ground espresso (usually Illy), and while the pods are expensive (around $0.50 each), I prefer using them to ground beans. The espresso from pods is as good as from the best ground beans and the cleanup is much easier. I've previously used a steam driven espresso machine, and the quality of espresso from the Saeco is much better.

5-0 out of 5 stars A definite 5 star espresso machine
I bought a Saeco (Black chassis version) over 6 monts ago, and it turned out to be an outstanding product. I definitely recommend it. It's a great deal for around $....

2-0 out of 5 stars Makes great espresso... for the first 3 months...
I bought this machine after reading a few positive reviews. I got mine and it worked perfectly well for 3-4 months (using bottled water, descaled once a month). First problem happened- it started to leak. I 've shipped it back under my 1 year warranty, got it back 5 weeks later. It worked for another 3 months after which it started to release steam at all times when mashine was on. I sent it back for repairs, got it back 4 weeks later ( I spent on average $2 a day on espresso :). I worked for another couple months and now it's at the point when my pump is not pumping water through coffee (like not enough pressure). My warranty has ended and I am looking for a new Espresso maker. It is not going to be SAECO. My advice is to get something with longer warranty and maybe more expensive but reliable.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love it -- makes a superb cup of coffee!
I've had this model for about a year, and I love it. It is easy to use, easy to clean and makes a beautiful cup of coffee with a thick, rich crema and not a hint of bitterness. It steams milk beautifully and quickly, too. I very much enjoy using it, and would highly recommend this machine to anyone looking for a high quality machine at a mid-range price. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great machine, but...
My Saeco Magic arrived in time from Amazon, but opening the box I had first surprise, Pannarello ( steam addaptor) came broke, an take me few days until get in touch with representative from Saeco, and after a week the part arrive.
This machine is making a great espresso. the problem is: no matter what king of coffee ground I used, still retain water under the coffee filter, and continue to lick water. I used the pots, the same results.
Amazon can do a better job here, giving full disclosure of technical data.....

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfetto! Just plain great.
This is a really good machine for those who want some seriously good espresso but can't quite bring themselves to spend 800 dollars+ for a fully automatic machine. It heats up quickly and produces FANTASTIC espresso with thick crema. Only a few minor problems:

Frothing milk is difficult- but if you only drink espresso its well worth it.
Plastic Case- I love metal.
Pump- works great, but its a *tad* noisy (only a tad)
Instructions- worthless. Like italian translated to japanese translated to farsi translated to english. But easy to use.

Dont pass this great great machine by! Im so happy and caffeinated now its like a different person. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Finally!
If you are searching for an easy way to enjoy delicious espresso, cappucino & regular coffee at home look no further. I will admit, my first machine was defective and I had t return it, so needless-to-say I was scared to exchange it for the same item. Well, I did, and boy was it worth it. It's a lot of money for a coffee machine, but if you are like me and keep buying lower priced items, eventually you realize you are wasting money. The machine is really all it is cracked up to be. If you like cafe crema, this thing is definitely for you! I doubt you will ever use a drip machine again.

My advice - before you do anything, WATCH THE VIDEO that comes with the machine. The instruction booklet stinks, but the video really helps you get started. After viewing the video, unpack & fire up your machine. Be prepared to have to ventilate the machine, if you watch the video first it won't be a problem.

Get ready for the best tasting coffee you have ever had, oh and remember, don't skimp on the bean you use. I went with Illy espresso beans. They are great and make a terrific "regular" coffee too! The crema it produces is like velvet. ... Read more

Made in Italy, this 1,250-watt espresso machine automates theespresso-making process, eliminating the fuss involved. It grinds coffee beans withoutburning them, tamps the ground coffee, brews, and then dumps spent grounds intoa container--all in about 30 seconds. For making a cappuccino or latté,there's a hot water/steam wand with a milk-frothing attachment. This MagicDeLuxe model has a number of features not available on Saeco's Vienna models: abutton to select a triple espresso in addition to a single or double; a funnelseparate from the grinder that permits the use of any preground coffee (decaf,for example, when everyone else wants regular); a heated surface on top themachine for keeping cups warm; illuminated function buttons; lights that followthe brewing process; and an indicator for when the drip tray needs emptying.

Users can select the amount of ground coffee per dose (6 to 9 grams), and havethe option of filling cups of several sizes--up to 10 ounces. The machinemeasures 15-1/2 inches high, 13 inches wide, and 16 inches deep, weighs 30pounds, rotates on a swivel base, and, with a silver and black exterior, looksgreat on the counter. The bean hopper holds about 12-1/2 ounces (8.8 ounces ofespresso beans are included), and the removable, transparent water tank holds 82ounces. The grinder is adjustable--from fine to coarse. Parts remove easily forcleanup. The machine comes with an exceptionally thorough and clear instructionbooklet and an instruction video. It carries a one-year warranty againstdefects. --Fred Brack ...

4-0 out of 5 stars The lowest price super-auto that works well
I own a Saeco Magic DeLuxe for work, and a Capresso C3000 (ASIN B00004SU1R) for home (actually, it's a Jura S90, which is the same machine with a different label). While the C3000 is a far better machine, for 3 times the price, it had better be. The Magic DeLuxe, though, is a nice, reasonably solid piece of equipment. Mine has been running almost continuously for about 2.5 years, producing and average of 10 cups a day for me and a few of my coworkers.

After that much continuous use, my Magic Deluxe has definitely seen better days. The seal on the boiler started to go about a year ago, though it still doesn't leak too much, and it produces an acceptable head of steam. The espresso it produces is still as good as ever - not as good as I get from the C3000 or the (semi-automatic) Gaggia Paros I used to use, but still, far better than Starbucks, as long as I use good beans.

The heating element holds up well to being left on continuously, steam generation is good (when the seal on the boiler is intact), and the water temperature is adequate, though not quite as hot as I'd like.

It's easy to adjust the quantity of water for your espresso, the level of grind, and the amount of beans. I recommend maxing out the quanity, leaving the grind one or two notches off the finest, and drawing only 6 or 7 seconds' worth of water, in order to get the best quality espresso.

It's a single boiler machine, so you have to either wait for it to get up to steam temperature after you make your espresso, or force-cool it after steaming by running water through the steam spigot. As a result, cappuccino takes a bit longer to make than I'd prefer for a super-auto, but then again, a second boiler would add at least [money] to the price.

Also, the auto-frother is the typical sleeve-with-a-tiny airhole job. I never use it, because it really doesn't do that great a job. Once you learn the technique of frothing with the pointed nozzle inside, you won't want to go back.

If you're looking for a super automatic machine, I'd definitely recommend the Magic DeLuxe as a good entry point. There are some slightly cheaper machines that aren't as good, and some slightly more expensive ones that aren't a lot better. This one hits a point on the price/performance curve.

2-0 out of 5 stars Service?
In a nutshell...........makes good coffee while it works.
Customer service is none existing. If you have a problem it will
take half a day on the phone and then 4-8 weeks to get it fixed.
They really don't seem to back the product. Suprised Amazon is pushing the product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!
If you love coffee and espresso and instant gratification, this is the machine for you. This machine gives you just the amount and strength of coffee/espresso that you want if just minutes. The hot water feature is great for soups, cappuccino and for steaming milk.

2-0 out of 5 stars Saeco Magic Deluxe
I bought one of these last fall and have had reasonably good results until a few weeks ago. The grinder has ceased to put coffee into the system for brewing, resulting in a "bean out" warning light even when the hopper is full. Now I grind the coffee and use the bypass chute to make coffee - less than "SuperAutomatic". I am finding that the system sometimes simply dumps the coffee grounds without making a cup of coffee for no apparent reason.
My wife also dislikes the positioning of the steaming wand; it should be on the side with a greater separation from the body of the machine.
I sent an email to Saeco's US Warranty station a week ago asking about a fix for this problem and have heard nothing. If there is no support for the product, it is not worth buying, even at a good price.
Caveat Emptor

5-0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get any better than this.
We've had our Saeco Magic Deluxe for about two months now,
and use it at least twice a day. We love it, and give it
4 1/2 stars.

First and foremost, it makes *great* coffee. You can choose
espressos, tall espressos or regular coffee, and all are
consistently excellent. The milk frothing attachment is
also very good, although we've found that it helps to heat
the milk a little first.

Secondly, it's very convenient to use. With one push of
a button, the beans are ground, the coffee is made, and
the grounds are dispensed into a waste container. No coffee
grounds to deal with, no cleanup. There's also a separate
coffee receptacle for ground coffee, which we use for
decaf, to save having to empty the regular beans.

Indicator lights show you when the beans or water have to
be refilled, or when the waste container needs to be emptied.
Occasionally, you have to remove and rinse the interior unit,
but it no big deal after the first couple of times.

There are a few things about the unit that dropped our rating
by half a star:

* the lever for adjusting the amount of coffee to be ground
per cup is inside the machine, which is quite inconvenient.

* the ground coffee receptacle only holds enough for one cup.
If you try to put more coffee in, the mechanism gets clogged
with ground coffee.

But these are minor points. If you enjoy coffee, and can afford
the extravagance, we highly recommend this coffee maker. You'll
enjoy excellent, convenient coffee from it every day. ... Read more
