Quick Overview

You can't help but think of KITT (if you don't get that reference, you didn't watch enough television in the 80's) when you see the Minuto, but there's a reason for that...It manages to be a superautomatic espresso machine and coffee maker, without sacrificing anything for either option.

You can't help but think of KITT (if you don't get that reference, you didn't watch enough television in the 80's) when you see the Minuto, but there's a reason for that...It manages to be a superautomatic espresso machine and coffee maker, without sacrificing anything for either option. A clever lever on the adjustable spout allows you to switch pressure settings to provide optimal extraction for both coffee (3 bar) and espresso (15 bar). So, if you oscillate between your love of lattes and drip coffee, the Saeco Minuto is your one-stop shop.

Before you make the final decision, keep in mind color is not the only difference between these versatile machines. If you’re a one-touch kind of person, let the silver Minuto Class automatically froth fresh milk with the cappuccinatore. If you like a little more control, select the black Minuto Focus and effortlessly froth milk with the panarello. Either way, you’re a winner in our book!

Features & Functionality of the Saeco Minuto Automatic Espresso Machine & Coffee Maker

  • Dual Pressure System: With the ability to switch brewing pressure at the flip of a switch, the Minuto ensures you get the best coffee or espresso, depending on your preference of the moment.
  • Adjustable Spout: The adjustable spout is the highest we've seen yet, making it the perfect size for a travel mug if you're taking coffee on-the-go.
  • Ceramic Grinder: The ceramic burr grinder guarantees fresh coffee, which is the hallmark of a delicious brew.
  • Programming: You can program the 3 drink options (espresso, coffee and large coffee) for length, allowing you to brew at the push of a button.
  • Dosing Options: Choose from 5 strength settings, creating everything from a mild to a bold brew.
  • Steam & Hot Water: The panarello steam wand allows you to easily steam up some milk for lattes or cappuccinos. If you're in the mood for tea or an Americano, it can also dispense hot water.
Pros
  • Two Birds, One Stone - The Minuto stands out with its ability to make both true coffee and true espresso, something other machines haven't quite pulled off yet.
  • Ease of Use - Cheaper than capsule machines but with all of the convenience, the Minuto gives you fresh ground coffee without all the cleanup of traditional coffee makers.
  • Retro - Some people may not be fans of the Knight Rider vibe this espresso machine gives off, but retro is in!
Cons
  • Loud - It probably won't wake up the family, but the Minuto is louder than other coffee makers.
  • Adjustable Spout - While the spout does adjust and goes high enough to fit travel mugs, it doesn't quite go as low as we'd like for shot glasses.
  • No Oily Beans - This is still a superautomatic, so the Minuto isn't a fan of super oily beans that can clog the grinder over time.

How Does it Compare? The Saeco Minuto provides the superautomatic espresso functionality of machines like the Xsmall, but also successfully pulls off a coffee preparation. If you're a fan of both drip and espresso, the Minuto can help pare down your kitchen appliances.
Tips and Tricks Ready to program the length settings? Hold down the button for the drink you wish to program until it says "Memo." Let it brew your desired amount and press the drink button again. Ta da!

A shopper asked: How does the silver model frother differ? Looks like you have to stick something in a milk carton? I like cappaccino and take a small drip thermos for work so this could be my perfect choice. Thanks. May 24, 2014

Teri KStaff: The Black Minuto offers a basic panarello for standard milk frothing. With this model, you will need to place your milk into a frothing pitcher and hold the pitcher under the panarello until the desired level of froth and temperature are achieved. The Silver Minuto offers a cappuccinatore for automatic milk frothing. This means that with the silver model you can simply insert the tube into a container of milk and place your mug under the spout. The cappuccinatore pulls up milk and froths it automatically, then dispensing this hot frothed milk into your cup. Either model will make a latte/cappuccino for you on the go, the silver model with cappuccinatore will just be a bit more automatic. Hope this clarifies! May 26, 2014

A shopper asked: Can anyone comment on how loud the machine is while grinding and producing coffee compared to other super automatics? May 9, 2014

Todd T: I don't have another superautomatic to compare it to, but it doesn't seem excessively loud to me. Besides, I know when it's done making it's noise, they'll be a wonderful cup of caffeinated goodness waiting for me... May 12, 2014

Nora C asked: Since this is such a new product, I'm hesitant to pull the trigger without some feedback from people who have used it... any feedback from your staff? My husband and I put espresso machines through the ringer and drink between 10 and 30 shots a day, so I need something that will really stand up to lots of use. Also considering the Syntia, at a similar price-point, but love the idea of the coffee option. Thank you! Mar 28, 2014

Teri KStaff: The Saeco Minuto is a very nice machine, but 10-30 shots a day is quite a few, unfortunately, and you will not have a shorter life from this machine. For that volume, I would recommend moving up to a machine like the Saeco Royal One Touch, or even to a Jura machine like the Impressa F7. Both of these machines will be better at handling a larger volume, and the taste of an Americano from them is fairly similar to the coffee feature of this Saeco Minuto. Hope this helps!

carroccio asked: Which machine do you recommend between the saeco intelia and the Minuto?
I'm Italian and I love very short espresso coffee.
Thank you very much!

Teri KStaff: The Minuto and Intelia brew similar shots, but the advantage to the Minuto is that it offers the ability to pulse the pump during extraction and provide coffee brewing rather than the same extraction you have for espresso shots. If you drink espresso only, then I'd go with the Intelia, but if you want coffee brewing flexibility, then the Minuto would be a better bet. Hope this helps! Mar 25, 2014
