Overview

Sticking with one bean is so 2011! These days, it's all about easily switching beans to try a new blend, that unique single origin or, and this is true, sometimes even decaf. Here to enable your ever-changing bean needs is the Saeco Gran Baristo with removable bean container. Just pull out the container housing your current beans and swap it out for the latest and greatest (and then swap again to go back to your traditional favorite)!

Features & Functionality of the Saeco Gran Baristo with Removable Bean Container - Certified Refurbished

  • Profiles: This machines stores 6 users, each with the ability to customize their drink preferences to their heart's content and have them saved for easy replication.
  • Programmable: Customize your brew with the ability to tweak the following: coffee strength (aroma), quantity (amount of water used to brew the coffee), coffee temperature, pre-infusion/taste and milk quantity.
  • VeriPresso Brew Chamber: The Gran Baristo's variable pressure brew chamber will brew at 15 BAR of pressure for espresso and 3-4 BAR of pressure for coffee.
  • Swappable Bean Container: The 9.50 ounce removable bean container makes switching beans a breeze! Flip the bean container lock to release the Gran Baristo's hold, lift the container and either dump out your old beans or switch it for the extra container to try something new!
  • No-Hands Milk Frothing: The removable milk carafe allows you to make milk-based drinks easy peasy!
Pros
  • True Espresso (and Coffee!) - With its VeriPresso brew group chamber, the Gran Baristo automatically adjusts the pressure to brew true espresso or coffee.
  • The Great Bean Switch - Changing the beans in a superautomatic espresso machine has never been easier!
Cons
  • Get The Ruler Out - The Saeco Gran Baristo is slim but quite deep. Be sure to measure the depth of your counter top prior to purchasing to ensure a good fit.
  • A Bit Messy - A little louder and spurtier (maybe it's not a real word, but it gets the point across, yes?) than other auto-milk frothing systems.

Does this have the ability to make regular coffee? Can you use a travel mug on this model?
Richard S on Oct 7, 2017
Best Answer: Yes, sort of! The Gran Baristo is one of the few superautos with a brew unit designed to brew at lower pressures that simulate drip coffee. For travel mugs, you can remove the spouts and fit a mug up to 6.5 inches.

It's worth noting that you'll probably want to brew a couple of shorter coffees into your mug, since the brew unit can only fit ~16 grams of coffee at full doses.

Does it clean the milk carafe ? After each use?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2016
Best Answer: Yes. It will ask if you want to clean it or not after you select a mode that requires the milk dispenser and it has poured your drink.
