How Does it Compare?
The Intelia Cappuccino is the one-touch version of the Saeco Intelia Espresso Machine and does not offer manual steaming.
I check if you can make latte macchiato with the model intelia?That model we recommend the exprelia or intelia? What are the main differences?Thank you.
A shopper on Feb 20, 2014
Best Answer:If you're looking for more programming and specific amounts to alter for your foam and espresso levels, then I would recommend the Saeco Exprelia over the Intelia. The advantage to the Exprelia is that you have the ability to froth a specific amount of foam with the traditional wand, which makes latte macchiatos easier. Otherwise the Intelia Cappuccino just allows you to set in an amount of milk to foam and is not as specific for foam level as you can be with the manual wand on the Exprelia. Hope this clarifies!
The frothing apparatus on top of the milk carafe that came with my machine has a horrible rubbery smell that not only transfers to the milk but also strongly affects the taste of the steamed milk. Is there any way to remove the smell and taste of the rubber? It totally ruins any milk-based drink that I try to make. Thanks!

Best Answer:I'm answering my own question here. I purchased this machine on a whim from a kitchen store even though I would usually go to Seattle Coffee Gear for this type of purchase. After searching the Internet to see if anyone else had encountered this problem and found a solution, I then contacted the seller, but they told me that I had purchased the last one they had in stock. I finally broke down and called Philips/Saeco customer service. Wow, what a pleasant surprise! A very helpful gentleman patiently listened to my problem and immediately arranged to send me a new machine and also emailed me the labels I need to ship my machine back to them. I had read some horrible accounts of customers trying to deal with this company shortly after Philips acquired Saeco so I just had to share my wonderful experience with you all. I certainly won't hesitate to purchase another one of their products...next time from Seattle Coffee Gear.
Best Answer:I don't think that answer is accurate. With the one bean, two bean, three bean button you only change the strength of the coffee or in this case the cappuccino, but you don't increase the volume. Is there a way to increase the amount of beverage dispensed?
I actually meant the liquid volume. I received an answer... press the cappuccino button for 3 seconds and it will enter the memo mode, where you can teach froth and coffee amounts. Also works for other coffees.
Hi, Actually it has a counter.. this is the replay that I got from philips: "Hello Oren, Thank you for contacting Philips. Unfortunately, it is not possible for a customer to check this even though the machine itself has a coffee counter built into it. This can only be accessed by service centre staff." So there is a counter but I assume you need some kind of a service code to access the counter, do you know it? Thanks, Oren.
Best Answer:No, unfortunately it does not. To clean this container, you can disassemble the carafe to make sure that all of the hoses get cleaned well, and we also recommend soaking these pieces, and using a pipe cleaner to clean through them. You can also run water through the machine with a milk cleaner like Rinza, as if the solution was milk, but it will come out of the spout, not drain into the drip tray.
Two questions: 1. Oily beans. I'm in the Bay Area and drink Peet's--muy oily but not a problem with my Solis. Do I really need to pass on this machine because of the oily beans? 2. Should the bean jiggler be removed as so many say?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2015
Best Answer:Absolutely, if you're looking to use a dark roast or oily beans, you will only find clogging and headache using those beans with any superautomatic. If you don't want to change your beans to a medium roast, then I would suggest looking at a semi-automatic where you can use whatever kinds of beans that you'd like!
The bean jiggler does not always need to be removed. Some find that having it in place is helpful to jostle the beans, but others will find that it creates more of a blockage or hinderance. Either way, try it with it in place, but if you end up seemingly to "run out of beans" often when there is beans in the hopper, you can then remove it. It doesn't harm the machine to operate it with or without it.
Does the Saeco Intelia One Touch have the SBS system?
A shopper on Dec 19, 2013
Best Answer:No, the Saeco Intelia One Touch does not have the SBS brewing system. The Saeco Brewing System (SBS) is a crema adjustment that actually just reduces crema for an americano or long coffee. It is not a feature I miss with the Intelia, and so I wouldn't let the lack of this adjustment steer you away from the Intelia.
Best Answer:This Saeco Intelia One Touch will make an espresso shot or a short or long coffee- like an Americano. This is the closest you will get to regular coffee, but is still a shot of espresso with more water pulled through and not drip coffee.
Does this machine make regular drip coffee (americano) as well?
A shopper on Aug 19, 2013
Best Answer:Yes, you can make an Americano, a shot of espresso with additional water, with this Saeco Intelia One Touch. It will be a bit different than regular drip coffee with this machine, but is a close option.
Best Answer:This is my second Saeco in 8 years, last one broke, when I was moving it & dropped it...I immediately ordered this model the silver, Intelia . and LOVE it, I really like that it flushes itself and auto shuts down saving on energy as well
We have had our Intelia One Touch for about a year now and it has been absolutely trouble free, consistently making a great cup of coffee. Easy to use, easy to clean. I especially like that the water resevoir, etc. can all be accessed from the front of the machine. (Posted on 7/6/2015)
TAKE GOOD CARE OF ITReview by SPARTY 047
Really like this machine after 3 months use (my first super-automatic). Have attached two labelled arrows, and my 92y.o. father can easily get his own cup of 'cafe americano' in the morning after I've gone to work; as long as I leave the water tank and bean hopper full and have emptied the puck bin! I have been home roasting for some 3 years and obtain excellent creme from the espresso and cappuccino settings.
It does pay to purchase maintenance supplies and carry out the weekly and monthly care routines (maintains excellent tasting coffee). I did remove the bean shaker as others advised. I also have been able to mix up to ~15% "oily" beans into the top hopper with no grinder issues. Lastly, when you remove the water hopper be sure to support it from the sides and bottom after filling! The clips that hold the front fascia in place will easily break (mine have) and cementing it back in place (I did -LOL) requires that you use just the right amount of acrylic adhesive to maintain the spacing that allows the tant to fully engage the water inlet.

I like it.Review by Scott
I bought this machine to replace a Capresso C1000. The Saeco is much quieter and makes better tasting coffee. I particularly like the milk dispensing container, which I've used for regular coffee and cappuccinos. I always put milk in my coffee, but I never used the steam frother on the old C1000. This unit, however, makes great, frothy hot milk for your coffee, which doesn't cool down your cofffee like cold milk, and is easy to use. The downside, compared to the C1000, is that everthing is smaller: the water container, coffee bin, and puck container. Also, the recommended cleaning intervals are more frequent. I haven't had it long enough to do a descaling or major cleaning, nor to comment on reliability or costumer service. However, so far, I am very pleased with it. (Posted on 10/5/2013)
