The Saeco Via Venezia is beautifully constructed from solid steel and has a stainless-steel casing. Employing some of Saeco's most time-tested features, the Via Venezia produces creamy, robust espresso each and every time. How? You'll find a frothing tip for perfect form, a large water tank, a powerful pump rated at 15 BAR of pressure and a safe, and a rapid recovery boiler that keeps the hot water coming.
Features & Functionality of the Saeco Via Venezia
- Simple Brewing: Fill the portafilter with finely ground espresso, tamp lightly and secure in place on the machine. Press the brew button to initiate brewing and then press again to stop.
- Frothing Tip For Perfect Foam: Like magic, your Via Venezia steaming wand will make beautiful foam just by slipping on the Panarello frothing tip. Mounted on a swivel joint, the wand conveniently swings aside and clean up is a snap.
- Perfect Espresso no Matter what the Consistency of the Grind: It stands to reason that the correct texture of the coffee grounds and the right pressure used to pack them, (know as tamping), makes a huge difference in the quality of espresso produced. The Via Venezia's heavy-duty pressurized portafilter does away with that concern by pressurizing the brewing chamber to improve extraction from the ground beans, promoting the perfect brewing conditions. A non-pressurized portafilter is also available for those that are into tamping their own grinds.
- Big Water Tank: The 98 ounce water reservoir is prefect for home and entertaining. You can brew a number of espressos and then refill the reservoir right where it's at, even if it is still brewing. Simple to remove, the reservoir can also be carried to a faucet.
- Powerful Pump: The Saeco Via Venezia 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.
- Removable Cup Tray, Drip Pan & Cup Warming Shelf: This removable cup tray and plastic drip pans make clean up simple. One of the two layered designs can be removed during brewing to provide additional clearance for taller cups. The Via Venezia provides a stainless steel passive heat cup warmer that cleverly eliminates the problem.
- Safe, Rapid Recovery Boiler: No hot water, no espresso. The Via Venezia keeps hot water coming with a large stainless steel, 950-watt quick recovery boiler of stainless steel. This boiler also has burnout protection; a thermal fuse to shut down the heating element should the machine run dry during operation.
