It wastes so much coffeeI love the coffee and I want to love the product but it wastes so much coffee. Every single time I go to empty the drip tray it is amazing how much coffee is inside of the machine. It has been ground but evidently the machine is not getting it into the pod and hence it just spills all over the place. I read the manual and it said that it has to do with the machines grinding setting (course to fine) and has tot do with the machine getting used to the beans you are using but that just is bull....I could fill my drip machine with the wasted grinds every two or three days

Machine arrived broken. Waiting months for replacement.Our Xprelia Evo was not working correctly when we first received it. When the bean hopper was empty, there was no alert signal and the machine kept attempting to brew. Saeco customer service had us send it to their Livermore repair center (having the product boxed up for shipping cost us about $20 -- Saeco paid for the shipping itself, but not for the packing). Livermore had it for a month, then finally said it could not be repaired and had to be replaced (we only found out by repeated phone calls, since Saeco did not initiate any communication with us). We learned this about 3 weeks ago. Repeated calls to Saeco's customer service line have been unhelpful. They initially said I need to call Livermore. Livermore says I need to call corporate. So finally today corporate tells me it will be another one month before they know when the replacement will be available. So we've been without the machine for 2 months so far. This kind of service is unacceptable. Why the delays? During the two weeks we had the machine before returning it, the coffee and espresso were both very weak, despite making all the appropriate adjustments in the settings. The strongest espresso setting yielded a beverage which could at best be called a reasonably strong cup of coffee.

Two years trouble freeThis is our second Saeco Super Automatic our first lasted about 6 years hopefully this one will as well. Like any product there are some things which could be improved but overall its a great machine and does what its suppose to do i.e. make great coffee. Although we have very few interactions with Customer Service the calls we made have been handled professionally and the staff has been very helpful.

Good MachineThe machine is more compact than previous Saeco machines that I have had. It does not remember the "individual" settings that my previous Saeco machine had. I have to adjust for variances from the one primary setting - e.g. warmer, stronger, more or less milk volume, etc. The quality of the machine remains good, however.

Would not buy againWhile it is quick and easy to use I do not like the final product taste. My major disappointment is with the automated frother. It just doesn't froth very well. It more like heated milk.

Suits my needs perfectly!I did a ton of research with many machines. My reasons for selecting this machine are below.
I'm the only coffee drinker in the house so I didn't need a machine that offered programming for multiple people. This is a great machine for one person because I can set it up exactly the way I want it, without a bunch of extra functions going unused.
I wanted the simplicity of a one-touch machine so I can press a button, finish getting ready for work, and pick up my latte on the way out the door. The self-cleaning milk container makes it really that fast and easy...and the quality of the froth is better than you get most of the time at that ubiquitous coffee chain.
I wanted the option to steam the milk myself - but I wanted a real steam wand rather than panerello. I love that, on days when I have a little more time, I can froth the milk myself and get that perfect thick foam you get at really good coffee houses (it takes practice!)
I’ve only had it for a couple of weeks, but I’m delighted with its performance so far.
