The Refurbished Odea Giro and Odea Giro Plus Espresso Machines with OptiDose II from Saeco features improved grinder functionality that automatically adjusts to the kind of beans you're using. Saeco also paid close attention to the sensor issues in its first Odea Giro iteration and now offers a choice of five different grind settings that will produce a richer shot. Saeco kept the updated Odea Giro's operations extremely basic: adjust the amount of ground coffee beans used and the brewed volume you desire, then press the brew button once (or twice for a double shot). A high-clearance steam wand accommodates your frothing pitcher without needing to tip it to fit underneath (as with some older Saeco models).

This is a Certified Refurbished Espresso machine

This video may feature a different model year. There may be variations in color, features and included items.

Features & Functionality of the Refurbished Saeco Odea Giro Plus

  • Adjustable Ceramic Burrs: Burrs will stay sharper longer and the grinder is much more quiet. You can easily adjust to use your favorite type of bean.
  • Simple Interface: Select your shot volume and press the cup button once or twice for single or double shots.
  • Easy Clean: Removable brew group requires minimal cleaning.
  • Large Water Tank: Fifty ounce removable reservoir can be setup for the Aqua Prima water filter to minimize scale build up. Convenient side access makes it easy to refill and clean.
  • Easy Froth Wand: Panarello attachment makes frothy milk easy to produce without much skill required. It also dispenses hot water for Americanos or tea.
  • Cup Warmer: Pre-warm up to six espresso cups on the top of the machine.
  • Removable Tray: Easily adjust the tray or remove it completely to accommodate taller cups.
Pros
  • OptiDose - Choose between seven and 10.5 grams of coffee to be dosed into your shot for a richer flavor.
  • Rapid Steam - Quickly heats up for steaming so you don't have to wait much longer for it to be ready for frothing. This functionality means you'll need to pull some hot water through the steam wand after you're finished steaming so you don't burn your shot.
Cons
  • No Bypass - We wish you could make shots using the pre-ground bipass, giving you more coffee brewing options.
  • No SBS - Unlike the Talea models, this doesn't have the Saeco Brew System that allows you to change the pressure for more or less crema.

How Does it Compare? The Saeco Odea Giro Plus produces great shots and does not need programming. The only difference between the Odea Giro and Giro Plus is the color. Giro is gray (graphite and silver) and the Giro Plus is all silver colored.
Tips and Tricks The milk gets very foamy, but will subside if you let it sit.

motobo asked: For the same price would you get a referbished Odea Giro Plus or a new Xsmall machine? Why?

I know the feature differences, and there are no real deal breakers, so I guess I'm really wondering about new vs used.

Pam T: Hi Bo K, I bought a Saeco Xsmall Superautomatic last September (2013) and have been very happy with it. I had a little difficulty in the beginning putting the internal parts back together after taking it apart to see how it works. On line is a very good video of how the various parts are supposed to work and how to replace them after they've been removed. Aside from that..... the only "flaw" in it's design is that if you want to change the coffee beans from regular to decaf you have to literally turn the machine upside down and shake them out. Luckily we all drink regular coffee in our household. I've only had to do this a couple of times when we have company that drinks decaf. It makes delicious cappuccino! We are very happy with our choice.

I've had no experience with the Odea Giro Plus. Sorry.

Jeff M: I am not familiar with the Xsmall, however the Odea Giro is a great machine. The design is modern, and the features are great. A refurbished machine is a super value, Seattle Coffee Gear expertly checks these machines, and back them up. Over the years I've bought 4 refurbished Saeco machines from SCG, one Cafe Vienna, and three Odea Giros; the oldest machine after 4+ years is functioning as good as the day I bought it.

In my opinion, the refurbished is the best bang for the buck.

David L: I purchased a refurbished saeco odeo and i could not be more pleased with it especially the ability to raise and lower the strength at the push of a button. I use my machine every day with a family of 4 and we all use it.. This machine has turned me into a coffee snob especially with the ease of using the foamer for the milk. It is really easy to clean and take care of that my 15yr old can do it. Jan 29, 2014

Mary G asked: Which pannarello wand comes with this refurbished model? The black plastic or the silver as shown on the picture? Is the silver wand the one recommended as an update for the Via Venezia?
Thanks
May 18, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: The Odea Giro comes with the panarello that is shown in the photo, and the type varies based on the color machine you choose. The Odea Giro in Graphite and Silver offers a black plastic panarello, while the Titanium and Silver model has a stainless steel panarello sleeve. These units use a different panarello than the Via Venezia, and so if you wanted a stainless sleeve for the Odea, then you will choose the panarello found at the link below:

Mary G: Thank you Teri for your answer. I have one more question, the stainless steel sleeve in the Titanium Silver model would produce microfoam? or it would need to be upgraded by the sleeve in the link that you mention.
Thank you again
May 20, 2014
Reply to Mary G Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: The Titamium model offers the stainless sleeve found at the link I included, so you would not need to purchase it separately. The advantage to the stainless sleeve is that it retains heat better than the plastic. The stainless sleeve produces slightly better micro foam, but you can incorporate the larger bubbles produced by either sleeve into a better micro foam by tapping your frothing pitcher onto your counter and swirling the milk. Hope this helps! May 20, 2014
Mary G: Thank you. May 20, 2014

Teri KStaff: While you can make espresso right out of box from the Refurbished Odea Giro it does not include non essential items like an Intenza water filter, a water hardness test strip, or brew unit lubricant. These items can be purchased separately, or together in the Saeco Maintenance Kit found at the link below:

Russ M asked: From the video demo by Gail & Kat (sp?), the time it took the machine to 'pull' the single shot was only 10 seconds. My understanding is a quality espresso 'pull' should take between 20-30 seconds. I have a Delonghi Magnifica and it does it in 22. Am I all wet on this? I have to admit I have no idea of what a 'proper' espresso shot tastes like. I wouldn't even know where to get one to compare (not Starbucks, I'm told). I only know what mine tastes like. So what's up with the 10 seconds? Thanks... Jan 17, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: The 20-30 second timing is for a semiautomatic machine with your own grinder, and does not apply to the super automatic machines like this Odea Giro with a built in grinder. The timing on these machines will end up being a bit quicker, and is not really going to fall into the standard 20-30 second bracket, unfortunately. The DeLonghi machines do have a higher dosage of coffee ground, and so your extraction time might be longer, and the shots will be a bit stronger than this Saeco. Hopefully this helps clarify!

Michael S asked: Can you use this machine to make a regular cup of coffee ("Americano") automatically? Jan 17, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: Yes, you can make an 8oz americano with this Odea Giro by turning the cup dial to the right to brew, which will allow more water to flow through your dosage of ground coffee. Jan 17, 2014

A shopper asked: Since this machine is refurbished, should I use the old or new descaling process described by Saeco? Oct 6, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: I am not sure about old or new descaling processes from Saeco, but you can descale this Odea Giro machine with the instructions for descaling a superautomatic that are found below:

A shopper asked: what type of coffee do you recommend for use with this machine? I read that typical espresso beans might be too oily... Nov 27, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: For any superautomatic machine, we recommend using a matte finish bean. Generally the darker roasts are oily, and so it is best to go with a medium roast or anything that is drier. Dec 6, 2012

Finally, a Espresso and Cappuccino at home. We have a manual Espresso machine from Aldi which works great but it's manual.

We purchased this Saeco Odea Giro Plus Espresso Machine with Optidose II - Certified Refurbished with a 10% off coupon with the 2 year optional warranty.

It makes great Espresso and with the Wand I make great Cappuccino.

The body is plastic and appears a little fragile. Handling with care is advised.

The machine had been working flawless. Yes, it is a little sensitive, the red Exclamation Mark comes on really easy. Make sure there is enough water in the tank, the bean hopper has beans in it, the dump tray was emptied when the machine was on (otherwise it does not know you did it, it just counts the portions of coffee made), and the steam knob is turn all the way to the desired position.

The only problem is that we drink way too much espresso now :-)

Great espresso and froth for less than 2 months before complete failure

I really loved this machine- great buy, wonderful espresso, great froth- until today. I have been fastidious on keeping it clean and well maintained. Today when I went to froth some milk, I heard a horrible noise. There was no steam or water. Red alarm light came on and went solid-checked dregdrawer, water reservoir, bean hopper-no problems, red light remained. Then I powered it on and tried to froth again. Noise returned and I powered it off since turning the switch to the off position did not stop the noise. I unplugged it after turning it off, and after replugging to known good outlet, there is no more light, no sound, nothing. It is completely dead. It has lasted me one month and 3 weeks.
That is not good. It is under warranty still, but it must be shipped and then repaired, which will take time and money. I am very disappointed in the short life of this otherwise great machine.

We purchased this SuperAutomatic on sale and could not be happier. It makes great coffee, keeps us out of Starbucks, and allows me to make a fine latte or americano every day.

The machine had been flawless. Yes, it will give multiple warnings (low water, empty drip tray, replace beans), but that is easily fixed and back to work it goes!

I highly recommend.

My old Odeo Go started leaking all over the counter and I was trying to find information on should I have it repaired or replace it. Living without an espresso machine was not an option.

SCG kept popping up in my searches and I decided to check out their site. WOW, I could get an upgrade for half the cost of my original through SCG's Certified Refurbished. No hesitation. It arrived quickly, looked like new and works great.

Wish I found SCG earlier. Great Site...Great Deals...Very Satisfied Customer!

I bought my Saeco Giro Plus because of the SCG's video reviews. I was a bit unsure that I would be able to produce good coffee with this machine. I was wrong it was simple to set up and use. The key is to find good beans that are not caramelized. One has to remember that if you are looking for an espresso shot you must set the water volume to 1 oz or no more than 1.25 oz. I always use the highest amount of beans to brew my espresso. Also I always dump my water and start with fresh each day. This way I know the machine has enough water.

That said I love my Odea Giro Plus it has exceeded my expectations. I get a great cup of coffee when I want it. I don't go out to a coffee shop any more. It's great to save money and have a (in my view) better cup of coffee than you get in the coffee shop.

Buy this machine you will not regret it. The SCG team is really a great resource for getting into the world of coffee. I had questions and concerns that were addressed quickly and with great customer service. I loved my experience with SCG and if I need another espresso machine it will be SCG all the way baby!

We bought this unit for our vacation home. The refurbished machine is like new. It has worked perfectly and produces a great coffee shot. We liked it so much and it was such a good deal that we bought a second unit.

We have a Saeco Incanto Deluxe in our main home and it is also a great machine. This machine is a higher grade stainless steel machine with a little more flexibility, but at a higher cost. You can't go wrong with either one.

A very strong advantage to the Saeco machines is the Rapid Steam feature which allows quick succession brewing/steaming.

I really like this machine - it is my first one at home and it is very simple to use and makes great espresso. My wife found it very easy to use and she's not one for complicated things, which was nice.

I've only had this for about a month and I've had no issues, and so far the machine seems high-quality and well built.
