Crew Review: Saeco Gran Baristo Update
In case you didn't already know, we love our Saeco Gran Baristo with Removable Bean Container. In fact, we love it so much that we made an updated Crew Review just for kicks! Well, we actually wanted to showcase this machine again because we found the more we used it the better our experience was.
What are some of our favorite features of this machine you ask? Well the first one is in the name, "removable bean container"! This comes in handy if you find yourself with a couple types of coffee just waiting to be brewed. Perhaps something different for the evening? We also love the programmable user profiles. Since everybody likes their coffee a particular way, the Saeco Gran Baristo makes it easy for up to 6 different users to customize and save their drink preferences. Another feature that really rocks our world is the adjustable spout. You are able to adjust the spout so you can have up to 6.5 inches of cup clearance. Quad-shot cappuccino anyone?
We did few tests as well to see just how well the Saeco Gran Baristo functions in real world environments. The results of our temperature tests are as follows:
- Espresso - During testing we were able to get both of these drinks up to 171°F on more than one occasion.
- Milk - After three rounds of automatic milk frothing we were able to get the temperature to 144°F.
- Hot Water - The hot water generally stayed around the 160°F mark.
We give this machine a thumbs up for functionality, performance, and quality of the drinks it makes. Watch the updated Crew Review below and then head over to our YouTube channel to see what else Gail has been up too.
