Saeco Technology in Three Espresso Machines

100Saeco is a leader in the espresso manufacturing industry. Once known as Estro, it is now produces top-of-the-line espresso machines and coffeemakers that are aesthetically eye pleasing, are easy to use, and are all top quality. This trend is seen with the new Saeco Xelsis Digital ID, the Royal Professional and the Vienna Plus, which is a newer version of the Vienna Digital. These three top of the line espresso machines will be discussed here.

The Saeco Xelsis Digital ID is built to impress, thanks to a stainless steel body and stunning chrome-plated accents. It is one of the best high-end super automatics with top-of-the-line components from beginning to end. An airtight sealed lid hopper with anti-UV coating keeps the beans fresher before being ground by the ceramic burr grinder. The Saeco Brewing System allows you to choose the strength and consistency of your coffee by turning a dial. It also has a pre-infusion, which can be turned from off to on or lengthened to suit your taste. A 54 ounce removable water tank includes an Intenza water filter has two stainless steel boilers ensure there is always water at the right temperature for brewing, steaming, or dispensing hot water. The Saeco Xelsis Digital ID has a streamlined, user-friendly design with an animated integrated fingerprint reader touch-screen interface for 6 user profiles for 6 personal custom beverages. Six cups can be stored on the metal drip tray as well. An automatic turn-on and energy save function keeps the Digital ID from wasting power. Included accessories are a manual and a removable milk carafe, lubricant for the brew group and a variety of helpful cleaning tools. The removable milk carafe automatically froths milk into your cup and will automatically clean itself after each use. It can also be used to keep milk in the refrigerator between uses. For micro-foam it has a separate steaming/hot water wand (with no panarello) that has strong steam press. The Saeco Xelsis Digital ID is ideal for business or home use for those who have simple technological skills and is backed with an extended two-year parts and labor warranty.

The Saeco Royal Professional can also be used as a professional espresso machine without any problems. It is made to run on standard 120 volt current and is a super-automatic espresso machine. That is, you can select how much espresso to dispense with three buttons that program it to grind the coffee beans to a pre-set size of grind from coarse to very fine or by-pass and use pre-ground coffee. It then measures the right dose of ground beans and tampers the grounds, creates a thick crema espresso and deposits the spent grounds, called a puck, into an internal dump box. You can also use the LCD display that indicates when to add beans, water, decalcify, and when to adjust the brew group. For an individual taste, you can select how much espresso to dispense with three buttons to program exactly how you want your espresso. If you prefer to have a cappuccino you can immediately steam with the Panarello wand for frothing milk in a pitcher or cup while the Cappuccinatore extracts milk from a container, froths it, and then dispenses it into a cup for you. The Cappuccinatore comes as an accessory to the Royal Professional, but is a must for cappuccinos and frothed espresso drinks. One other important feature allows you to adjust the temperature of your coffee with 5 different settings: maximum, minimum, high, medium, and low.

The Saeco Vienna Plus is a super-automatic espresso machine that uses a system of sensors and lights to help you monitor the brewing process and signal when the machine needs to be re-supplied with water or coffee beans.It has a special pre-infusion program that increases the flavor and aroma and will extract espresso and steam milk in about 7 seconds. It also has a conical type burr grinder that grinds whole beans from 6 to 9 grams,which is controlled by a knob in the bean hopper. However, it does not like oily beans and it does not have a by-pass doser like the Royal Professional. Strength and volume of your coffee or espresso is controlled with a dial.This less expensive super automatic espresso machine has a 57 ounce water tank and offers hot water for tea other coffee beverages like that of the other super automatics. The Vienna Plus has an integrated dump box for spent coffee grounds, which can hold up to 20 expended coffee portions.

Each of these super automatic espresso machines offers a different level of making espressos, coffee and more. They also require different levels of technological skills, but with the more advanced skills come more commercial value, more help and longer warranties. Each one also exemplifies part of a progression of advanced technology in the art of making espresso machines starting from the top.
