Product Description

When saving space in your kitchen is key, go with the ultra compact and easy-to-use Refurbished Saeco Focus Superautomatic Espresso Machine. Saeco's Focus includes a built-in grinder for whole bean coffee plus a bi-pass doser for making decaf or preground coffee. With easy access to both the water tank and the coffee grounds, this espresso machine is a perfect fit for those who need to be a bit more space-conscious, or who just don't want a giant espresso machine taking over their entire kitchen.

Features & Functionality of the Refurbished Saeco Syntia Focus

  • Three Color Display: With simple and intuitive icons for brewing and maintenance the Focus is very easy to operate.
  • Ceramic Grinder: The Focus has Saeco's ceramic grinder design for more consistent grinding of coffee beans.
  • Removable Water Tank: 40-ounce removable water tank includes Intenza water filter.
  • Rapid Steam Feature: The Saeco Focus has Saeco's Rapid Steam boiler system that ensures there is always water at the right temperature for brewing, steaming, or dispensing hot water.
  • Preground Coffee Option: When you want to brew a quick batch of preground coffee, you can use the Focus' bipass doser located on the top of the machine.
  • Aroma System: The Saeco Aroma System pre-wets your coffee grinds to ensure the best possible coffee extraction. This feature, also known as pre-infusion, can be turned off or on, or lengthened to suit your taste.
  • Energy Saving Functions: Your Saeco super automatic can be set to shut down after a certain amount of time, so you never need to worry about wasting power.
  • Protective Bean Hopper: The large coffee bean hopper has an airtight sealed lid with anti-UV coating keeps the bean fresh longer.
  • Compact Size: The Saeco Focus is much smaller than many other espresso machines without sacrificing features, meaning it will easily fit under your cabinets.
  • Pros
    • Easy to Use Controls - The Focus has simple button controls and a three-color graphic interface.
    • Compact - The Saeco Focus is designed to be more compact than most superautomatics on the market.

    The panarello looks to be plastic. On a video for the Saeco, I think this panarello was identified as not very good. Is that true? Can you switch out panarello's?
    A shopper on Oct 5, 2013
    Best Answer: I do not believe that you can switch out panarello's. I have had no issue with mine, it's more learning to work with the one you have, the more you use it the better at it you become. Hope that helps!!!

    I currently have a Odea Giro Plus. It has the ability to control the length of the shot from very short through a very long. Does this Syntia Focus have this capability?
    jimbezdan on Jul 4, 2015
    Best Answer: Yes, the Syntia allows you to adjust the amount of brewed coffee according to your taste and/or the size of your cups.

    Just bought a refurbished Saeco syntia focus and upon taking it out of the box, get a red slow blinking triangle/exclamation point warning. I have tried to clean the brew unit and prime the water, but the error persists. Does anyone know if there is something else I can try to get the machine working?
    Ryan S on Sep 21, 2014
    Best Answer: If your Syntia Focus is slowly blinking the error light, then there could be a few reasons. With the machine powered on, first make sure that your brew unit is fully inserted and locked into the machine with the service door closed. Then be sure that your water tank and dredge drawer are fully seated in the machine. Finally, make sure that your knob is directed to the center and not pointing toward the steam or hot water function. This should clear that sensor for you!

    Excellent product, we use it every day (Posted on 12/29/2014)
    Excellent small espresso machineReview by DIGuy
    The small Saeco machine makes excellent coffee and has a very small footprint. If you make large cups of coffee you will have to refill the water reservoir often due to the limited size of the container. But overall it is just what I expected. (Posted on 10/28/2014)
