- Basic Programming: Sticking to the theme of keeping things uncomplicated, the Inuita allows basic programming of espresso and long coffee volume.

- Warning Lights: The Inuita will let you know when it’s time to refill the water or beans, when the dump box is full and when it could use a good descaling. One might say this is an intuitive machine.
- Easy Clean Brew Group: The brew group is removable and can be rinsed under the sink for a super easy clean-up.

This my second saeco. The first one lasted about 3 years.
Then the repair wasn't worth fixing it.
During that time we loved the machine. Since it had been pricey and they seemed to break pretty regularly we didn't replace it. With regularly breaking, I mean exactly that.
I first used a Saeco in Switzerland in the eighties. Several people in my extended family had them. All owners loved them and all machines were delicate and broke too quickly imo. So my hope now is that Phillips ownership has improved the quality.
Time will tell. The coffee it makes is good. Pleased so far!

This is my second machine. First one did not function at all, this one produces little to no crema and weak coffee at any setting. I want a refund

Great Machine!Review by rhk4360

I got a refurb from a fire sale and I've been really pleased with the machine. It came with an instruction manual in French, but you can easily find an English version on the Saeco website. The machine looked like it was hardly used. I know this isn't the superautomatics do not achieve the ultimate espresso, but honestly I'm too lazy to manually make espresso every morning, so this works for me.
This is my first superautomatic and it works great. It is mostly plastic so a bit flimsy, but for the price that's fine. I just wanted something to make iced coffee during the week and some cappuccinos, lattes and americanos on the weekend. I use Lavazza super crema beans and haven't had any problems. The cleaning is pretty easy and the light indicators let you know when something is wrong. Overall, I'm very pleased with the product and hope to get a few years out of it.

Arrived in perfect condition and was easy to setup. We use it primarily for coffee. Daughter commented on how it doesn't flare up her heartburn like old coffemaker. Absolutely love it.
