Features & Functionality of the Refurbished Saeco Exprelia One Touch Superautomatic Espresso Machine

  • Removable Milk Frothing Carafe with Automatic Cleaning Cycle: External container automatically froths milk into your cup. The top portion of the handle swivels to the left to dispense steamed milk directly into your cup during the brew cycle. When the handle is swiveled back to the container it automatically rinses itself to keep the container clean and clear of any milk clogs.
  • Alternate Steaming and Hot Water Wand: The Exprelia has a dedicated hot water and alternate steaming wand with dedicated second boiler for strong steaming power. The stainless steel wand does not include a panarello and is perfect for creating your own micro-foam.
  • Removable Water Tank: 1.5 liter removable water tank
  • Double Boiler System: The Exprelia has two stainless-steel boilers that ensure there is always water at the right temperature for brewing, steaming, or dispensing hot water.
  • Saeco Brewing System (SBS): Allows you to choose the strength and consistency of your coffee by turning a dial.
  • Aroma System: The Saeco Aroma System pre-wets your coffee grinds to ensure the best possible coffee extraction. This feature, also known as pre-infusion, can be turned off or on, or lengthened to suit your taste.
  • Auto-Clean: Your Saeco superautomatic will automatically clean and descale for you leaving you with a well-maintained machine that will produce flavorful drinks every time.
  • Customization: Each beverage can be set to your personal preference. It allows you to program the quantity of coffee to grind, coffee temperature, size of your drink and quantity of milk or water.
Pros
  • One Touch - The Exprelia has true one-touch technology for cappuccinos, lattes, and other beverages using Saeco's removable milk carafe.
  • Steam Wand - The Exprelia has an alternate steaming wand with more steaming power (and no panarello) than any other superautomatic we have tested.
Cons
  • No Oily Beans - Oily beans really gunk up superautomatic grinders and the Exprelia is no exception. Try to stick to a medium roast for best results.
  • Milk Carafe Hot, but not Extra Hot - In testing the automatic milk function, we found it was not as hot as a one-touch models from Jura or DeLonghi. If you are looking for an extra hot latte, use the alternate steaming wand to get the milk as hot as you like.

Mark G asked: The specs indicate that the height of this unit is just over 14 inches. On Saecos web site, it appears to be about 16.5 inches. Would you pleas clarify the height? I have a small area under the cabinets and the height really matters. Thanks. Dec 3, 2013

Teri KStaff: The Exprelia machine is about 14 1/4" high. However, keep in mind you access the water and beans with two doors at the top of this machine. So, unless you want to pull the machine out or be creative when filling these up, the doors need an additional 6" to open. Dec 4, 2013

Arash M asked: Hi,
Which super automatic would you recommend? Saeco Exprelia or Jura S9? Based reliability and ease of use/maintenance.
I would very much appreciate a response.
I have been read in about these two products and I like certain features of each one.
Thanks,

Teri KStaff: There are definitely pros and cons of each! The Exprelia has the convenience of the auto-froth carafe as well as a traditional steam arm, giving you flexibility to create different levels of froth. The carafe system of the Saeco machines is much easier to keep clean than the tube system of auto-froth the Jura machines use, as the Saeco carafe can be "cleaned" with some steam from the machine. The Jura S9 allows for a higher dosage of coffee in each drink, so you can potentially create stronger shots and milk based drinks. The Jura machines require using their cleaning and descaling products, which can be a bit more expensive over the lifetime of the machine. The Saeco programming is pretty straight forward and easy to use and navigate, where the Jura machine is a bit less intuitive where programing is concerned. Hope this helps! Apr 28, 2013

Arash M: Thank you very much Terry,
two things about exprelia. I have heard that there are issues with water leakage and rapid filling of the drip trays, and also issues with the display going bad. have you heard any of those issues? I really like the easy cleaning option of the Exprelia and the wand, but the on line reviews have made me concerned about this machine.

Thanks again,

Arash Apr 29, 2013
Teri KStaff: It is true that the drip tray does not have a super large capacity, so you will need to empty it on a regular basis. I have not had customer's complaining that their display is going out, and so I would not be concerned or expect that this would be a problem you might encounter should you purchase the Exprelia. Apr 30, 2013
A shopper asked: Has anyone tried retrofitting the new milk carafe from the EVO? I am curious if it is compatible and if using it results in an increase in the temperature and quality of the froth? Mar 4, 2014

A Great Machine When Paired With Reasonable Expectations

I have been a super automatic owner for about 5 years now. My last machine was a De'Longhi 3300. It was a great machine and ran great for just over 4 years before having a catastrophic failure. Returning to the market, I initially looked at De'Longhi again but nothing in my price point really struck a chord with me. We decided to return to Seattle Coffee Gear to peruse the refurb possibilities.

Coming from that machine I just wanted a traditional super auto with a steam wand. When I saw that I could something like the Exprelia One Touch for only a little more than my De Longhi would otherwise run we decided to take the plunge. More than anything else I was really drawn by the perceived built quality of the machine. I say perceived simply because I won't know for at least 1-2 years the reality of my immediate impressions.

People have "complained about temp" when using the one touch for milk drinks, it's not going to be 160 degrees. I suspect even the newer Evo won't get hot enough for those who want a piping hot cup. The one touch is all about convenience, not temperature and control over the final result. If I want to take the time or I have guests it's the steam wand. If it's 10 minutes after I woke up and I want a quick cup before I rush out the door, the one touch does the job. Pre-Warming your cup will help and so will drinking immediately. It's not hot enough to run a cup and then sip slowly over the next 15 minutes. Keep in mind the coffee comes out of this machine *very* hot, we are talking specifically about the milk. Thankfully with this machine if you WANT that kind of temp you still have a steam wand unlike many comparable machines that sacrifice the steam wand for the carafe. If I want to make a latte for someone I can run milk and then steam it for a boost in temp. The key thing for me is the Exprelia (and also the Evo) give you options that most machines don't.

I knocked off a star for price and value simply because though out of stock it appears SCG sells the newer model Evo for $100 less as a refurb despite that machine actually selling for $100 over the original exprelia. My Refurb looked new, I saw no signs of wear/tear even in areas where I would expect to have seen some marring (such as the plastic cover of the LCD screen). Can't say everyone's unit will be like this but I walked out with a unit in better cosmetic shape then I would have suspected.

One other "knock" that doesn't really matter. The genius designers put a bright red LED light in the power button. Not so that you know when it's on, nope.... This light FLASHES about twice a minute while the machine is in standby. Our coffee bar faces our living room and I ended up putting a sticker over it. Not the end of the world but definitely one of those "what were they thinking" moments.

Spent countless hours researching this and similar machines. Came across this refurb and bit the bullet. Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised at the size. Guess I spent too much time zoomed in when researching. Fits nicely on our countertop. Being a refurb it had everything needed but did not have the water filter, grease, and cleaning agents you get when buying new. No biggie just ordered some and was still WAY ahead of full price. No blemishes or scratches of any kind. I eagerly crafted my first cappuccino after initial set up. I was a little surprised at the tempurature of the milk based drinks which was my main reason for buying. Not very hot. Easily fixed with 15 seconds with the steam wand though. Espressos, Caffe, and Cafe Lungo's are very hot if you set them on the hottest setting. Easy to clean and the machine tells you when to.

I have had it for about 2 1/2 weeks now and do not regret spending the $$ on it even though it was a stretch for me at refurb price. Planning on making it up on efficiency with my business! Overall this is a quality machine that has been well thought out. Seattle Coffee Gear was great to deal with. Site made purchase easy, they give you tracking info, and they were friendly when I called in on the temperature of the milk based drinks.
