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. Jul 22, 2013
BTW - we're very pleased with this machine. It makes a nice cup, and it's holding up well to office use. Jul 23, 2013

Saeco is a fantastic machine and we would never have another brand now that we've owned one.
Hope this helps. Jul 22, 2013
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. Jul 22, 2013

They are organized alphabetically. Please let me know if you have any further questions! Mar 8, 2012
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. Mar 9, 2013
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
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! Mar 6, 2013
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. Mar 6, 2013
Hope this helps with your decision.

Quality Price Value
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.
