Features & Functionality of the Saeco Poemia Espresso Machine - Certified Refurbished

  • Easy to Make Espresso and Coffee: Fill the portafilter basket to level with finely ground espresso and twist onto the brew head. Depress the brew button to start brewing and then press again to stop. Easy Serving Espresso (E.S.E) pod friendly for easy clean up and accessiblity.
  • Frothing Wand for Easy Foam: Simply place the frothing tip (panarello) into a milk pitcher and open the steaming knob to begin steaming milk. The specially designed wand will automatically froth the milk to the desired temperature and foaminess. The wand is mounted on a swivel for easy steaming access.
  • Saeco's Patented Aluminum Pressurized Portafilter Design: Typically a very fine grind of espresso (from an expensive grinder) and 30 pounds of tamp are required to achieve and ideal shot of espresso. The Poemia's heavy-duty pressurized portafilter does away with that concern by pressurizing the brewing chamber to improve extraction from almost any fineness of ground beans, promoting the perfect brewing conditions. A non-pressurized portafilter is also available for those that are into tamping their own grinds.
  • Powerful Pump For Consistent Shot Extraction: The Poemia boasts a powerful vibratory pump rated at 15 BAR of pressure, the same pump found on top of the line Saeco espresso machines to pull maximum flavor from the coffee beans.
  • Safe, Rapid Recovery Boiler: The Poemia has a large stainless steel, 950-watt quick recovery boiler. And the boiler also incorporates a thermal fuse to shut down the heating element should the machine run dry during operation.
  • Cup Warmer: Allows you to store your cups and glasses on top of the machine and it also pre-heats them to keep your brewed beverage toasty warm.
Pros
  • No Need to Tamp - There's no need to tamp with the Poemia Espresso Machine and a pressurized portafilter.
  • Removable Water Tank - The Poemia is easy to clean because of its removable water tank.
  • Mon Petit - Made of metal and plastic, this ultra compact design easily fits into most places.
Cons
  • Non Articulating Steam Wand - The design of the steam wand can make it difficult to fit larger milk frothing pitchers underneath.
  • Messy Portafilter - When using the pressurized portafilter, the puck will be a little messy after brewing.

How Does it Compare?

This little machine is in the same league as the Aroma and Venezia, but takes design cues from the Saeco Xelsis, featuring a compact metal and plastic casing. It inherited a panarello wand from its superautomatic cousins, making microfoam a breeze, however with mobility limited to left to right motions, larger frothing pitchers are difficult to maneuver.

Tips and Tricks

When you place your water tank back in your machine, make sure that you place the filter below the water line or else you'll find water leaking everywhere.

Amman, Jordan asked: How many continuous shots can i pull with this machine? I mean can this machine function for 2 hours straight? Apr 6, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: The Poemia is made to produce 10-15 drinks per day for home use. The machine can stay powered on throughout the day however running shots and steaming continuously may burn out the heating element or the pump pretty quickly, unfortunately. You might consider a heat exchanger machine that will allow you to brew and steam at the same time. Heat exchangers also have larger boilers which will allow you to brew and steam for a longer amount of time. The Nuova Simonelli Oscar machine would perform well and produce consistent shots within a two hour period.

sally b asked: Is this a steam or 15 bar pump pressurized espresso machine? Apr 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: This Poemia is a 9 bar pump espresso machine. 9 bars is the rated number of bars for espresso pressure, and more bars than that, such as 15 or 17, are generally at peak pump pressure, and not the pressure on the grounds during extraction. This machine is definitely capable of producing a shot with a good amount of crema! Apr 29, 2013

Crew Review: Saeco Poemia Non-pressurized Portafilter Upgrade

I purchased what was supposed to be a "refurb" but ended up doing a descale after having to bend the brew head filter back to where it should have been (flush against the gasket!) and seeing how dirty the back side was. I also had to request a replacement for the stripped steam knob. The machine's now making me some mighty fine Americanos and cappuccinos. My portafilter basket also doesn't sit flush against the holder so I have to scoop the puck out with a spoon, but I haven't noticed it having any impact on my shots, which I'm happy about. Unfortunately, I'm inclined to believe that MY machine was never really given at least a "once over" before shipping it out :(

This machine is my first step up from a steam machine. What a difference in aroma, flavor and color. I used the machine as built for a few weeks. (Auto frothing wand and pressurized portafilter) The machine performed well but I felt it could do better. I first looked to purchase a latte art frothing wand, but after days of research decided to just remove the auto frother entirely from the metal wand. It took some getting used to, but even though the wand is short, it's fine for a 12oz pitcher; and, now I'm getting pretty close to a nice white paint consistency with the steamed milk. The next step was purchasing a refurbished Bratza Encore grinder and removing the pressurization from the portafilter. I found that the Encore can choke the Poemia on its lowest settings but I can pull a 23 second shot on a 5 or 6 setting, depending on the beans. With this machine I'm well on my way to outperforming many of the baristas at Starbucks.

Pros:
- Machine heats up fast for those times that I just feel like having a latte or espresso.
- Although it is made mostly of plastic it looks good and fits on the counter.
- As far as my limited experience allows, I believe that this machine is capable of great shots.

Cons:
- The machine is light and does require placing an arm over it to tighten the portafilter.
- No 3-way valve so the puck can be soupy. But it usually is not, if I unload the portafilter after preparing the drink.
- The drip tray does not clip into position and easily comes loose when wiping. I'm used to it now and no longer have any issue with it.
- The cover is not hinged but I have not had any issues with it.
- Water reservoir is small, but I'm not making lattes for a large crowd.

I was looking for an inexpensive way to step into the real world of espresso. This machine fills that requirement. I am very happy with this purchase, and when I retire this machine I'm sure my next will be a step up.

After doing lot and lots of research I finally decided on the Poemia for my first espresso machine. I didn't need all the bells and whistles on the expensive machines but I still wanted to to control some of the aspects of my espresso. The pressurized portafilter is a great starting point for someone who has not made espresso before. While the overall construction is a bit "cheap" being plastic, I can't complain because I only paid $89.00 for it. I think if you take the time to learn about the machine, it's limitations and its strengths I think anyone would be happy with it. Having used many different types of beans they all seem to work great. If you are looking to upgrade down the road you can always get the non-pressurized portafilter to practice with. Make sure you get a tamper as well, because the scoop/tamper that comes with it is useless. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and would recomend it to anyone.

Essentially the filter handle was so difficult to make seat properly and remove that the great price of this machine made it not worth the hassle for me to own considering the fact i would be performing this act 6X/day. Its nice and compact but the reservoir lid only sat on the machine instead of snapping on, the drip pan is the same, and overall felt a bit cheaply made. All of these issues could have been overlooked if it were not so difficult to use. i have used and owned several machines. It sucked that I had to return it, but what made it worse is the return shipping for me was $30 plus i incurred the original shipping price of $12 so i got a $42 lesson not to purchase a $99 espresso machine. Sad.
