A powerful superautomatic without the hefty price tag? Introducing the Saeco Odea Go, a straightforward, simple to use and affordable espresso machine that's been updated to allow for more choice in beans and grind settings. Saeco's Odea Go Espresso Machine is the ideal option for those who'd like to upgrade to automated shot extraction without breaking the bank.

Features & Functionality of the Saeco Odea Go

  • 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 Maintenance: Removable brew group requires minimal cleaning.
  • Large Water Tank: Fifty ounce removable reservoir can be set up 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
  • Ceramic Burrs - Updated grinder operates more quietly, staying sharper longer than its steel counterparts.
  • Simple Functionality - Select your shot volume each time you pull your shot and hit the cup bottom once or twice for single or double shots.
  • Easy to Maintain - Removable brew group is simple to maintain: Just pull it out and spray it down once a week.
Cons
  • No Rapid Steam - It takes a little longer to switch between steam and brew because you have to wait for the boiler to change temperatures.
  • No SBS - Unlike the Talea models, this doesn't have the Saeco Brew System (SBS) that allows you to change the pressure for more or less crema.

Swords asked: I'm interested in buying the Saeco Odea and can't decide if I should get the model with the optidose feature that allows you to adjust the amount of coffee brewed. Can the base model brew strong espresso or this feature more for people that want weak coffee? Thanks! Jul 19, 2013

Albert L: John,

I have had this coffee maker Giro Plus for 9 months now. I love it. The first one they shipped to me was totally dead, they replaced it with a new one in a week.It works fine so far. I read a lot of bad reviews from different sites and I was very hesitated to buy one, but since I tasted the coffee from my brother's home, I could not wait to buy my own. BTW my brother bought it five years ago, an old model, still working and making delicious coffee.

Anyway I am happy with my purchase and it makes amazing coffee.

George E: We use our machine in an office of 8 people, so I went with the Optidose model. I don't think it's necessary if you're only making espresso, but several of us use the machine to fill a mug where being able to pack more grounds into the puck helps make a stronger cup.

BTW - we're very pleased with this machine. It makes a nice cup, and it's holding up well to office use.

Swords: How often do you have to clean it? Jul 30, 2013
George E: We empty out the puck bin once every few days and give it a light rinse. I believe best practice is to give the innards a wash every now and then, too. But we've had the machine going-on 6 months and haven't done that yet. There may be consequences, but not so far. Jul 30, 2013
Swords: Great, thanks! Jul 30, 2013
Teri KStaff: We recommend rinsing out the brew unit to remove loose grounds and coffee oils once a week and then descaling the machine with a product like Dezcal every 2-3 months to remove mineral build up from your water. You can find Dezcal below:

Cynde V: Absolutely LOVE being able to adjust amount of coffee brewed. We can make espresso for our friends who enjoy Italian style coffee. It also works great for iced coffee brews. However, not everyone likes the strong brew so for just a regular morning coffee we often opt for a little milder brew. The option is worth it as each cup is brewed to the taste of the person for whom you are making it.
Saeco is a fantastic machine and we would never have another brand now that we've owned one.

Hope this helps.

Donna F: Hi John,
I would recommend getting the optidose model due to it's versatility. Depending on the type of coffee beans I'm using, this model is handy since it affords one selection of stronger or lighter coffee. There have been times when a tiny espresso would not suffice, so I brewed a cup on the strongest brew, and it was fantastic.

Good luck, it's a nice piece of equipment.

Carma J: I have the one with OptiDose and love it!!! I have such a variety of company, from very weak to espresso, that I've found it to be very beneficial. Plus, there are some coffees that because of their taste I have to weaken or make stronger to get the flavor and taste I want. Jul 22, 2013
Reply to Carma Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Milan P: Hi John, I would definitely get Saeco Odea Giro with OptiDose since you can choose 3 settings with the strength of your brew. I don't think you get the same coffee flavor and strong espresso with the basic unit. Jul 22, 2013

Marco M: I would get the Optidose. My wife and I drink varying strengths of espresso depending on the time of day. ITs nice have the option to choose. Jul 22, 2013

mcraw m asked: Can you use oily beans (not flavored)? I actually like the taste and prefer it with a little more bitterness. Would I just need to clean it more often or will oily beans dramatically reduce the life of the machine? May 8, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: Yes, using an oily bean would clog the brew unit and grinder of this Odea Go or any superautomatic machine. It is the case that if you use them, you will see clogging and can definitely have problems with the machine, so we don't recommend using them. Sticking with a matte finish is really best! May 9, 2013
Reply to Teri Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Clarissa J: Oh, so no flavoured beans either? Oct 7, 2013
Reply to Clarissa Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: Correct, you cannot use flavored beans in a machine like this Odea Go or any super automatic, as those beans generally have a flavoring sprayed on them that will coat the interior of the grinder as well as the brew unit itself. Over time this coating can harden and clog up your grinder and brew unit and present a lot of issues. For these reasons, we always suggest an unflavored matte finish bean. Oct 8, 2013

David I: I have used it daily for two years with out any issues. The pump is starting to go (in that it is making noise), but considering how often I use it, I am not surprised. It is a great unit, and when the pump does go, I will simply get it fixed as it is relatively inexpensive. Mar 9, 2013

A shopper asked: I have the Odea Go Plus. The creama is very thin and doesn't last. We've tried half a dozen different coffee beans, all more or less the same result. Is there an adjutment I can make to thinken the crema? Thanks

Teri KStaff: Unfortunately crema does dissipate pretty rapidly on any machine, including this Saeco Odea Go, and there is not a way to thicken it or increase it's life. Sep 18, 2013

George E asked: Trying to decide between this unit and the Odea with the OptiDose. http://www.seattlecoffeegear.com/saeco-odea-giro-plus-espresso-machine-with-optidose-ii It's for the office. But we only have about 6 coffee drinkers, so the use will not be too heavy. Any recommendations as to the better choice? Many thanks. Mar 6, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (1)
David I: I have the Optidose version and love it. It allows you to adjust the amount of coffee ground for each shot, which is really good if you like stronger shots, but other members like weaker shots. One thing the OptiDose does not have is a crema enhancer, which for some people is a big deal. I have found however, that you get great crema with the OptiDose as long as you use fresh coffee.

One thing to consider.... with 6 drinkers you will be cleaning (really rinsing) the machine quite often. I do it once a week and I am the only one who uses the unit (though I use it every morning). You will likely be emptying the puck bin once a day with six drinkers, and rinsing the unit at least once a week.

Also, while the steam wand is pretty decent compared to others, I have found the best way to get nice warm milk with "Micro Foam" is to not use the steam wand, but to use a heated frother... like the "Nespresso Aeroccino Automatic Milk Frother and Steamer". To be clear, the wand does a fine job, but the automatic frother does it better and faster (quieter too).

Hope this helps.

George E: Hi David. Thanks for the info. Another question if I may: why so much rinsing? Emptying the puck bin, I get. But we have a Saeco Syntia at home and never rinse that. It has some sort of automatic cleaning cycle, 'cause it spits out rinse water when it starts up and shuts down. Does the Odea not do that? Many thanks. Mar 13, 2013
David I: There is also a rinse cycle with this unit as well. The key thing here is that the brew group is removable (might be in yours as well). You should rinse it for two reasons:

1. Coffee residue will build up on the unit, resulting in the less than perfect shot.
2. Coffee can grow mold fast, especially in the presence of a lot of moisture. Every time the coffee is ground, coffee dust will find its way into the inside of the brew chamber (this happens with any super automatic espresso machine). If you don't rinse it out weekly, you risk mold. It is just good hygiene. Mar 13, 2013
George E: Got it. Many thanks. I will check on that with the machine. If my wife thought for a second there was mold in the coffee machine, she'd never drink another cup, which would have consequences I'd prefer not to consider. Cheers. Mar 13, 2013
sean f: George,

I've been using the Odea Giro II for about two years now and had a similar decision to make when I purchased the Giro II. In my opinion the extra cost for both Opta Dose (being able to go from 7g to 10.5g of ground coffee) and Rapid Steam (extra heating element allows to go from brew to steam in about 30-45 seconds) are useful features. First with Opta Dose if I am using a coffee that is less refined (Starbucks, for example) I can lower the dose to allow it to taste less "bitter" which is nice. Though I do not use the steam function often. When I do the reduced wait to go from brew to steam is greatly appreciated.

As a side note. I purchased a Odea Giro II refurbished model from Seattle Coffee Gear with their extended warranty. I've had a couple of hiccups that I attribute to user error and their customer service has been top notch. I'm fairly critical of things like customer service due to my background in a similar service industry. Rarely do I have the pleasure of not being worried about when a question will be answered from SCG.

Good luck with the machine!

Nancy V: George, I am now on my second Saeco Odea Giro Plus Espresso Machine with Optidose II. Note that when the first one played out, I chose to buy a second one exactly like the first.

It has served us well and makes GREAT tasting coffee, latte, espresso. We make 5-6 mugs of coffee/day with it. You'll no doubt have to refill water & dump grounds every day with 6 people using it. As long as varying users don't have a gripe about only having one type of coffee available in the hopper (can't select between caf and decaf as there is only one hopper), everyone should be pleased to be able to easily select their dose strength and cup fill amount.

Obviously I can't comment on the Odea Go, but I hope this helps reassure you about the Giro Plus.

Tomer Y: Hi George. In short, you can't miss with either one - they both are great machines. I have the Odea Go and I love it. To my mind having this machine in the office where, at best 2 out of the 6 of you will know how to really operate it, and the rest will just "make coffee", I'd go with the simpler to operate device, in this case the Odea Go. Seems to me with other people throwing in whatever beans they find in the office cabinets and so on the OptiDose is an awesome feature that is more likely to be set wrong than right in your environment. My Odea Go is for an office of 3 and everyone just makes their own without any real trouble, but I'm still left to maintain the unit. So, keeping it as simple as possible is probably the way to go. Mar 6, 2013
Reply to Tomer Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
George E: Words of wisdom. Thank you Tomer. Mar 6, 2013
Teresa H: I have been very happy with the Odea go super automatic machine. We only use ours for iced lattes , so I can't give any rating for steamed milk coffee drinks. We use our machine almost daily. I make mine with 4 shots in the morning to drink on the way to work (45 minute commute). I've had my machine close to 2 years. I just sent it back in to be repaired 2 days ago. Don't know what is wrong yet, but as much use as it has seen I'm still happy with it and can't wait for it's return. The machine is easy to use and reliable.

Hope this helps with your decision.

Donna F: I hope this answers your question, there are only two coffee drinkers at my house. I like the added feature of having the grinder working with the machine, it brews creama that is dream-worthy. I am very particular about my coffee and have been obtaining it from Europe for years, this machine brings out the best taste and aroma. On the downside, I wish the water container were larger. This machine brews coffee as good as any more costly italian model. I recommend it. Mar 6, 2013

J Gregory N: I absolutely love this machine. I use it every day, multiple times. I did not descale my first machine and locked it up. totally my fault.
I then bought a refurbished Odea Go 3 years ago and have been using it daily.
This time I listened and perform the descaling as directed. What a great machine. I love it..Can U tell?..lol

My 2 sons now purchased the same ones and love them

Diego B: Hi, I have the Saeco Odea Giro Plus Espresso Machine with OptiDose II at the office and I'm very happy. Before I had the Saeco Vienna Plus but the Odea Giro is much better and less messy and better coffee. For not that many coffee per day the Giro Plus is a good machine, The use at the office is about 12-15 espressos per day. Mar 6, 2013

Aviv E: Im using the Saeco Odea Go Superautomatic Espresso Machine at home and its working perfectly producing great coffee every time. I adjust the coffee grinned when I'm using different coffee beans, its probably a matter of taste, but my machine produces great coffee with beans from Vivace and Caffe Lieto, both in Seattle Mar 6, 2013

Mario M: Sorry for the late response but if you only have 6 coffee drinkers I would go with the odea go it is reliable and in 3 years I have never had any issues I have the same amount of drinkers in my house as well Mar 26, 2013

After participating in a coffee group at work, sharing this machine, I realized I missed the quality when I was on vacation and every weekend. Additionally, any all-in-one coffee/espresso machine that could stand up to 25 cups/day, month after month and never break down was worth the expense. Therefore, I purchased my own for home use and I couldnt be happier.It even passed the test of a family member who is a CPA and barista of several years who gave it a BIG thumbs-up. Purchase, maintain and enjoy. And remember, no flavored beans. Stick with quality grade espresso beans.

After drooling over my parents saeco for the past two years, we finally got our own. The updated model has a much larger water container, swivels, and can fit larger coffee cups. We are very pleased with the product and love the crema on top. All our guests have been very impressed with the quality.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Commercial Grade, Great Taste, Easy To Clean, Quick Brewing

Cons:
Small Water Container
