Quick Overview

The redesigned Talea Giro Plus has a long list of impressive upgrades, including a bipass doser for pre-ground coffee and an increase of five grind fineness settings from its former three. This straightforward superautomatic doesn't have a ton of programming to get in the way, but you can expect the same great espresso drinks. It features Rapid Steam for a quick switch between brew and steam, high clearance on the steam wand and an adjustable removable drip tray — giving you some of the best cup clearance on the market.

The redesigned Talea Giro Plus has a long list of impressive upgrades, including a bypass doser for pre-ground coffee and an increase of five grind fineness settings from its former three. This straightforward superautomatic doesn't have a ton of programming to get in the way, but you can expect the same great espresso drinks. It features Rapid Steam for a quick switch between brew and steam, high clearance on the steam wand and an adjustable removable drip tray — giving you some of the best cup clearance on the market.

Features & Functionality of the Saeco Talea Giro Plus

  • Adjusting Dosing: Select from three different dosage settings to vary the strength of your shot. The new Plus model includes a fourth option that activates the preground option for decaf coffee.
  • Saeco Brewing System (SBS): Pressurization dial lets you select from more or less pressure so you can dial in your crema preferences.
  • Removable Stainless-Steel Drip Tray: With some of the best cup clearance of any superautomatic on the market, the Giro Plus can accommodate even taller cups.
  • Ceramic Burr Grinder: A quieter grinder than steel, ceramic burr grinders also stay sharper longer. You can adjust it to five different coarseness settings. The Giro Plus version has been updated to include the new Saeco Adapting System (SAS), which automatically adjusts to work with your favorite bean selection.
  • Panarello Attachment: A sturdy steam wand includes an attachment that makes frothing easy, requiring little intervention on your part. The wand also dispenses hot water.
  • 57 ounce Water Tank: Suitable for the optional Aqua Prima filter (to reduce scale buildup), the removable water tank is accessed from the side, making it easy to clean and refill.
  • Removable Brew Group: Also accessed from the side, this brew group is easy to clean and maintain — just pull it out once per week and spray it down with hot water.
  • Wheeled Base: Smoothly move the machine across your countertop without having to lift it.
Pros
  • Large Cup Clearance - The Talea Giro Plus fits a wide variety of cup sizes.
Cons
  • Plastic - Although the redesigned Plus model has a stainless-steel drip tray, we wish there were more metal incorporated into the case.

How Does it Compare? The Saeco Talea Giro Plus has consistent shots and a large cup clearance, thus we think it's a great machine. However, it does lack the programming that some users enjoy.

A shopper asked: Our coffee is not coming out hot enough, and the espresso doesn't taste very strong, regardless of the settings. Any suggestions? We love the simplicity in this machine, but are not satisfied with the product (yet). Dec 30, 2012

Sanjin S: Our machine does the perfect job for the bucks. Before we had for years semi gaggia and of course on semi machines you can always make better espresso, but "fast life" is limitation and fullauto is better choice. I believe on better fullauto machines you can get better espresso, but price easy doubles, not really worth (atleast for my budget). I would rather pay for good beans which makes a huge difference on coffee quality. For my beans I use local shop quartermains for almost 15y and so far could not find better, for my taste of course..
I hope above observation helps, and we are very satisfied with our giro plus fullauto, as we had realistic expectations set for this type of the machine..

Douglas R: as far as the temp of the espresso goes, I have not found a solution to this other than the frother, or the microwave.
as far as flavor goes, I personally use the esspresso beans from costco its a red bag).
it takes a little fiddling with the bean grind to get it to come out at a good rate with a good flavor. best way I have found is to adjust it, and make 3 cups of coffee.....the third is the way it will come out from then on.
hope this helps.

Mark Z: After startup, dispense a cup of hot water through the wand in order to prime the line. The expresso after that will be hotter and stronger. If you really like strong expresso turn the cup size all the way to the left and push the cup button twice for each cup. Theoretically this is a double, but it will be about the same volume of water as a single cup at the setting one notch up. Also, I have had only good results with dark roast coffee. Jan 11, 2013

Jennifer K asked: I have had my machine for about 3 years now. Although finicky at times, I still love my machine. I think old age is getting to her, because I have started experiencing very weak cups of coffee. I took the brew unit out, cleaned and soaked in a descaling unit, and emptied all of the beans and remnants of beans in the grinder. The unit was just recently descaled so I didn't run that again. But it still is putting out a weak cup. Any suggestions what may be going wrong? Sep 17, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Sean M: Hey Jennifer...I had a similar experience a few months back. After looking everywhere on the net I came up with two possibilities. One was to clean the inside of the metal filter at the top of the brew group (you have to take it apart to clean it). It can get clogged over time and the volume of the espresso will be reduced. Unfortunately it did not make any difference for my machine.

You may not believe this but what actually fixed the problem was ridiculously easy.. All I did was turn the SBS dial all the way to the left and then all the way to the right a couple of times and then put it back to my preferred setting. Once I finished this process it started working again. :)

I hope this helps. Good luck!

George C: The only comment that is odd is that you soaked the brew unit in descaling powder. Soaking is done with a special powder, descaling only works under machine programming.

I had a previous Saeco, and after a few years it also began to deliver a weaker cup. I can only think the pump does not work as efficiently as it did as new, and it either needs maintenance (replacing tubes or valves) or replacement. SeattleCoffeeGear is the right place for this questions, IMHO.

Mark A: I noticed a smilar problem recently. What I noticed is that either static, or dryness prevented the ground coffee from falling into the brewer, as I looked down the pre ground port on top with a flashlight. I vacuumed the backed up coffee grinds out from the coffee grind port at the top and from the brew chamber at the bottom, after removing the brewer unit. That did the trick for me and I hope it works for you. Sep 18, 2013

Ryan J asked: I just got my machine and I have two questions I hope you can help with.

1 - What type of grind is best when using the bypass?

2 - Also what is the best way with this machine to make something close to a regular cup of coffee when I feel like it? I've used the bypass and made a large cup but it seemed to take a really long time, and then it makes me prime. Am I doing something wrong?
Jul 26, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: For this Talea Touch (or any super automatic machine) you want to use espresso ground coffee in the bypass. You need to be sure to use the proper amount of grounds along with a grind that is not too fine or too coarse, which can cause the unit to dump the coffee without brewing. You can make an Americano by either turning the volume dial to the far right to add the largest amount of liquid through the grounds into your cup, or simply brew a single or double shot and add hot water from the water/steam wand into your shots. If when using preground the extraction is taking a long time and then the machine asks you to prime once brewing is done, then very likely you are using too fine of a grind in your bypass doser. Hope this helps! Jul 29, 2014

Jim B asked: Saeco Talia Giro. Probably 4 years old (no coil button under the "drop" water button)
Unit starts, primes and then stops with all lights flashing.
Unit is clean, year old brew unit.
What do I need to clear or clean?
Jun 13, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: Unfortunately without having the machine here, I can't say for certain what is going on with your Talea Giro. If the unit stops working and then gives you multiple flashing lights, then there may be a clog in the brew unit or the grinder. If the unit is rinsing when you are given that error light, then there may be a clog in the brew unit or screen. We have a video of disassembling and cleaning the brew unit that may solve your issue, but if not, it may need to be seen for service. The video link is below, as is a link to our repair center page.

A shopper asked: Can I use the Starbucks Christmas blend bean in this machine? Dec 16, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: I am not familiar with their Christmas Blend, but generally Starbucks roasts all of their beans very dark, and so they have lots of surface oils. We recommend staying away from anything with a shiny surface and sticking with a nice matte finish bean for whatever roast you choose in your super automatic machine. Dec 18, 2013

A shopper asked: How do I increase the water temperature coming out of the machine? Dec 4, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: Unfortunately there is not a way to increase the temperature on this Saeco Talea Giro Plus. If you have a scale build up, then the temperature may be lower than it should be, and so the best thing to do is to try descaling with a product like Dezcal. Hopefully this solves the issue, but if not, we may need to take a look in our repair center. Check out Dezcal below:

Stephanie R asked: I've owned the Talea Giro Plus for a little over a year now and love it. Unfortunately, we've recently started to experience issues with it taking an excessive amount of time to brew a full cup or not omitting enough water to even make a full cup. Several times in recent days it will stop and present the warning light as if it requires priming. After dispensing water through the wand, the warning light will go off, but the issues persist with not being able to brew a full cup of coffee. I've disassembled as much of the brew group as possible and soaked its parts in vinegar after reviewing other posts online suggesting to do so. That has not helped either. Any suggestions? Thanks! Jul 18, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: We do not recommend using vinegar as a cleaning/descaling agent for any superautomatic machine. Instead, I would suggest descaling the machine with a product like Dezcal, and then also soaking the brew unit in a coffee cleaning product like Cafiza dissolved in some hot water. The Dezcal will remove any mineral and scale build up in the boiler/internals of the unit, and the Cafiza will clean any coffee oil build up on the screens of that brew unit. You can also brew using some of that Cafiza in the bipass doser of the machine. Brewing with the bipass will let the unit brew a cup without grinding any coffee, so the machine runs hot water and cleaner into the brew unit. Just be sure to rinse out the cleaning agent and maybe toss the first cup after so you don't end up with cleaner in your cup! Hope this helps! Jul 19, 2013

AnaTorres asked: the frother worked very well on this machine for the first month, and then I noticed it started frothing less and less and now all it does essentially is heat the milk but does not seem, does cause some bubbling but that's all, can you help??? Jul 13, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: If the steam arm is heating and not frothing, be sure that the insert in the panarello is peaking out about 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch from the end of the metal sleeve. If this piece is too far into the sleeve, you may need to push it further out with something narrow like a pen. Also, be sure the small pinhole at the top of the panarello sleeve on the Talea Giro is clear of any blockages. Hope this helps! Jul 15, 2013

I just received my machine last week. It produces the best cup of coffee a non-professional machine would ever hope to produce. If it had a water tap instead of a resevour I believe it could be considered a Professional machine. Quick, convient, easy to use, and clean. Perfect for me.

Once you have experimented with it for a few days, you will be making an outstanding cup of coffee. A couple hints:
1. Let the frother spit out some water first, then put your milk in to be steamed.
2. Use a thermometer every time, can't judge the temperature by the foam.
3. It has several sensors so when the light is red, check water first, ground waste second, and beans third. The water tank is a little small although I am not sure how I would design it to be bigger.
4. The water in the waste door seems abnormal but it is some kind of overflow so don't panic.

Pros:
Great Taste, Simple but not too simple

Cons:
Small Water Container, Quirky

Easy to use, quick, quite; however, I would like the ground coffee inlet to be larger. One issue I found was if the machine is turned off & I remove the catch tray or water container; once I turn the machine on I receive an error forcing me to reset the machine. Now, I just leave it turn on when I clean out the catch tray or refill the water container. The little wheels on the bottom are a great touch--all appliances should have those--simplifies cleaning.

Overall, it is a great little machine.

We fell in love with expresso and other strong/smooth coffee base drinks when we lived in Italy. When we came back to the US, it was impossible to find a commercial coffee house that made a brew we could swallow. I knew what the good coffees were (Italian Expressos of course). I just had to find a machine that was worthy of them. I bought this machine as a referb from SCG (Thanks Victor) in May 2010 to replace my manual one. I figure I've made a minimum of six brews a day (sometimes more) everyday since then (you can add up how many this machine has made). I love this machine. It is basic, simple and that makes it awesome. If you don't like fancy gadgets, and you just want good coffee, this is your machine. It does 'spit' into a perfectly good cup (too often) sometimes, but I can live with that. I wake up to this machine every morning, and if I forget, the wife reminds me. Family and friends get snippy when they come over and aren't offered a sample. People who love coffee know what good coffee is, and this machine makes good beans better, and makes the best beans truely worth getting. Keep this machine clean, and run only reverse osmosis water through it, and it will serve you well.

Pros:
Great Taste, Easy To Clean, It workseverytime, Easy To Use

Cons:
Needs lots of attention, Small Water Container, Messy

The Talea Giro Plus makes good coffee, but you need good nervs in order to love it. First of all the error warning is the same for all 4 types of errors (no beans, no water, full disposal water tank and full trash tray). If the warning signal turns on, the machine wants you to take action but you have to search for it's needs in order to have it working again. To make it clear: Warning signal turns on! You don't know what's wrong. You check the water, but water is ok, You look up the been container but it's not empty and then you have to open up the right lid and pull out the trash tray and water disposal tank. This would be less of a problem if it would happen once a week, but some of the containers are empty/full every day and this is more time consuming then operating a decent manual espresso maker. That's why it's cheap too. I ordered parts to improve it; I will install an automatic water filling device and I will also mod the trash tray and used water tank so that I will never touch it again.
Like I said, the coffe is good!!! I use the Espresso Vivace beans.
Unfortunatly these problems are not limited to the Giro plus only...

Pros:
Easy To Use, Great Taste, Quick Brewing

Cons:
Small Water Container, Small used water tank

I've always had my eye on the Talea, but it's 1300$ plus across the border, so when I found it here for so cheap (25$ plus a week at Starbucks)- I jumped!
I liked the look of this one, but wanted to make sure I was getting the best for my needs nad easiest to use... the videos were amazing. They cleared up so much for me and made it clear a super automatic was the clear choice for me.

The only pitfall is the noise. It's not killer loud- if you bought one without a grinder, you'd have the quiet. It does it all, easily.

My only complaint is that, if you put the water filter in teh container, it seems to need filling a lot. Don't install it! :)

This is our 2nd machine. The first was a Gaggia. We are very pleased with this Saeco. You can customize your coffee in ways to satisfy everyone. Grind, crema/aroma, quantity, dose, strength. No wait time from brew to steam.
Coffee is hot! Not lukewarm. For us it does it all. Very versatile.

The red warning light can be touchy at first but just get in the habit of emptying the bins every couple days before it asks you to. Takes a seconds or two.
The steamer wand works very well but range of motion is somewhat limited.

Gail was a great help! We enjoyed the vids and demos.
I considered MANY different units.We have no regrets about choosing this one!

Pros:
Great Taste, Easy To Use, Customizable, Nice looking, Large Water Container, Hot coffee, Easy To Clean

I researched super automatics for quite some time before purchasing this model from Saeco. Pronounced 'sai-eh-co'link: [@]The machine is easy to use in the morning when you aren't awake yet. Read the manual once when you get the product and you will be happy. Make sure the water is full, the bean hopper is filled and the waste container is empty, then brew your favorite drink with the touch of 1 button.The quality of the machine is nice and well designed for it's use and your eye. If you want a stainless steel unit this one is not for you. The housing is made of quality plastic that is easy to clean.As far as the brew quality goes... use only good quality espresso beans for your drinks and adjust the amount of water, aroma, etc before complaining about the Saeco unit. I had read many reviews stating that the brew was weak or bitter which had very little to do with the machine. The instructions tell you how to adjust the coffee brewing process to your tastes and to use quality coffee beans and water.The quality of the hardware is good. One of the many reasons I purchased a Saeco unit was because you can find parts for it after the 1 year warranty runs out. If the brew group fails you can buy one online easily. I like Jura machines but they don't sell any parts to consumers.I hope this helps.
