Saeco Intelia Espresso Machine

With just the touch of a button, this fully automatic machine not only grinds and brews delicious espresso with a thick, rich crema, it also froths milk for coffee-house lattes and cappuccinos at home. Brews rich espresso and froths milk via a simple user-friendly menu display. Customize the coffee strength and serving temperature with the press of a button. Pre-brewing system moistens grounds prior to brewing to maximize the espresso's flavor and aroma. "Traffic light" color-code system guides you through the brew process: Red indicates some action is required, yellow indicates the machine is busy and green lets you know the machine is ready to use. The pannarello frothing wand allows you to manually froths and steam milk for lattes and cappuccinos. Built-in ceramic burr grinder is quiet, durable and provides consistent results. Water filter removes impurities and ensures fresh-tasting coffee. Automatic cleaning and de-scaling cycles take the guesswork (and grunt work) out maintaining your machine at peak performance. Stainless-steel and durable ABS plastic construction. Generates 15 bars of pump pressure for superior espresso flavor. 17 1/4" x 12 3/4" x 21"; 19 lb., 8 oz. 10.5-oz. bean cap. 50.7-fl.-oz.-cap. removable water tank. 1850W. This product is intended for use in the United States and Canada and is built to United States electrical standards. Made in Italy.

August 4, 2013
I replaced a Saeco Vienna Plus with the Intelia. I loved the Vienna Plus, but there were some features I always wished it had. Coffee temperature, automatic standby (time select-able), and the ability to use grounds if wanted were things missing in the Vienna Plus. The Intelia has all the features I wanted in the Vienna and still makes the great coffee I expect in the morning. The look of the Intelia is also a step up from the Vienna. The metallic finish gives it an upscale look, which works better in my kitchen (all stainless steel). The quality of the coffee is excellent. I wanted a unit that didnt have a milk container (had one of those with my Nespresso, and found it to be a pain). I used the tube to make milk froth, but found that the froth made that way was not of the same quality as manually frothing. Other than that (and it is not a function I purchased it for) it works perfectly for my household. I hope I get some longevity with it, as it is a great machine.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, Size, Speed, Design
Cons: Loud
