Product Description

Simplify your morning java routine with the Saeco Intelia certified refurbished espresso machine. As you clear the sleep from your weary morning eyes, allow the bright LED display to guide your way to a delightful shot of espresso or an Americano. As your vision begins to clear, choose from three dosage levels and preferred water volume. If a latte macchiato or cappuccino sounds like it would hit the spot, effortlessly steam milk on the black Focus model with the panarello or the cappuccinatore on the stainless steel Class model. Creating a drink on the Saeco Intelia can be so simple, you’ll almost forget you made it!

The Intelia Class now comes with a black cappuccinatore that is featured in the images, versus the stainless steel cappuccinatore featured in the video.

Features & Functionality of the Saeco Intelia - Certified Refurbished

  • Large & Luminous LED Display: The simple and sizable three color display makes operation and maintenance a cinch.
  • Ceramic Grinder: Doesn't overheat the beans and preserves aroma.
  • Removable Brew Group: The removable brew group makes cleaning a breeze.
  • Energy Saver: The Intelia automatically kicks into stand-by mode after one hour of non-use.
  • Bypass Doser: Easily brew your favorite preground blend.
Pros
  • Shake it Up - As the grinder operates, the finger guard vibrates to help beans find their way to the grinder chute.
  • Efficient Yet Swift - Even when your Intelia is in stand-by mode, you are only a mere 25 seconds away from brewing a fresh cup.
  • Money Saver - Spend a little less cash with the certified refurbished model.
Cons
  • Skip the Oily Beans - Like most superautomatics, using oily beans may clog the grinder over time.

Ease of Use 5
How Does it Compare?

While the Intelia has similar functionality to the Syntia, the Intelia features a larger water reservoir, dredge box and bean hopper.

A panarello for milk frothing is offered on the Focus, while the Class model features an easy froth cappuccinatore.

Please check Height, Width, Depth. Is it really 17.3" tall?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2015
Best Answer: I've measured ours again, and these are the dimensions. I think you might have been misreading the height, as our site lists that it's just over 13" tall.
Height: 13.5"
Depth: 17.375"
Width: 10.125"
Also, please keep in mind that the depth does not include the power cord that will stick out of the back. This is approximately 1", so you won't be able to squeeze it flush against the back wall. Hope this helps!

hi - just ordered the intelia but wonder what i will need to clean it - do i need to buy a water filter or can i use filtered water? Does it come with a water filter? Thanks! Always enjoy your website and Gail & Kat !
nancy d on Mar 3, 2015
Best Answer: You don't have to use a filter in your water tank, but we do recommend using softened water. Essentially, you will just want to make sure that it's being filtered, and you can test how hard the water is, then set your machine accordingly, so that it reminds you to do descaling at appropriate intervals. If you do choose to add a water filter into your tank, then you will just reduce how often you need to descale, but even if you are using very soft water, you will still need to descale the machine, typically every 3 months for very soft water.

A refurbished machine will not come with a water filter, so if you would like to use one, you will just need to purchase the Intenza filter as an accessory. Thanks for the comments, they do a great job with those videos!

Do both the Saeco Intelia Focus model and the Stainless Steel model permit programming two beverages by adjusting the coffee strength and water volume?
Magmp on Feb 6, 2015
Best Answer: Yes, you can program both the volume (0.5 oz. to 8 oz.) and the strength (1-3 beans, or 7-10 grams). You can program both models in the same way, for volume by pushing and holding the button you want to program, and once you have as much in your cup as you'd like, releasing the button so it will remember for next time!

What is the warranty on this refurbished machine - also will buying the additional warranty options ADD to the refurbish warranty? Also - do you plant to get the Inctanto Deluxe back in?

Best Answer: The warranty and extended warranty policy is provided here: https://www.seattlecoffeegear.com/service/scg-warranty-details Essentially, the warranty, be it the one 6 months that comes with a refurbished machine or the extended warranty, covers if a component should fail internally to the machine. It does not cover normal wear and tear items like o-rings and gaskets, and does not cover external parts such as a panarello, water tank, or drip tray, etc. It also does not cover issues that arise from misuse of the machine such as using a dark roast/oily bean in the grinder that clogs the machine, or scale clogs from not descaling. The process for a warranty repair includes the parts and labor to repair the component failure, and return shipping back to you within the continental U.S., but does not include initial shipping charges or packaging to get the machine to us.

If you choose to add on the extended warranty, it is additive, meaning that if you purchase a 1 year extended warranty, the total warranty is for 1.5 years, and if you purchase the 2 year warranty, the total warranty length is 2.5 years from the purchase date.

Since the Incanto Deluxe has been discontinued, it will be less and less frequent that we will have them available. Since it has the same features as a couple other machines, depending on what you need, it may be easier to find a current model that will work for you, since these will be more available, and if they aren't in stock they will be sooner than discontinued models.

I have three questions? Is this machine durable? How often do you have these machines returned to correct problems? Is the body metal or plastic?
Ray H on Dec 17, 2014
Best Answer: These machines are very reliable. With proper maintenance, we really don't see them need much repair. Maintenance will include descaling every 2-3 months, using a medium roast and not oily beans, keeping the steam wand clean, and cleaning the brew unit once per week. Other than that, we generally expect about 6 or so years from a superautomatic like this. The main body will be plastic. The black color includes plastic on the front and top too, whereas the stainless steel color will be stainless steel on the front and top, but plastic on the sides.

Can I add regular ground coffee to the by-pass doser or it needs to be just beans?
MrFJC on Nov 17, 2014
Best Answer: The coffee hopper of the Saeco Intelia is for whole beans only, while the bypass doser is for one scoop of preground coffee only. Never put ground coffee in the bean hopper, and never put whole beans in your bypass doser, as this incorrect usage can damage your machine.

Does this machine have SBS? Thank you.
A shopper on Sep 11, 2014
Best Answer: No, the Saeco Intelia does not have the Saeco Brewing System adjustment. The SBS is actually not included with many of their newer machines, however the unit still provides great results even without this feature!

Purchased a refurbished Saeco Itelia, was sent the wrong machine - Seattle Coffee paid for return and sent the correct machine. It produces the best coffee I have ever had. As others have said remove the guard over the grinder to make coffee without any problems. I should add this is the third automatic espresso machine I have had. The first a Saeco lasted 9 years, the second a Krups lasted about 1.5 years or just after the warranty expired and it was repaired during the warranty. The Intelia is now almost a month old and we love it. (Posted on 12/27/2014)

I got the focus and at first I was a little disappointed because I couldn't adjust the temp., but once I brewed my second cup of esperesso I knew that this thing was doing everything perfect. I would have probably messed up a perfect cup. That's what this machine does...makes you a perfect cup. (Posted on 12/16/2014)

This is my third espresso machine; the first was a saeco vienna which made good coffee - not great and lasted more than eight years. Machine # 2 Krups - made better coffee but 2 repairs and out of warranty killed it. The Intelia makes the best coffee I have ever had - I have no idea about durability as I have only had it 2 weeks but the coffee is fantastic and it is very easy to use. The instructions seem complicated but they are simple and in the past if you cleaned and cared for a saeco it was very durable. We will see! (Posted on 12/16/2014)

Well I wanted to submitt a review on my Intelia Focus, but before I got to it, something happened. While cleaning the brew unit I dropped it, and it broke. CHECK THIS OUT: I called SCG and talked with Haley about getting another part, she sent me one for No Cost because I was within my first 30 days! So COOL!!
And this is being written while enjoying a nice afternoon cup (had to try the shot, too) from my new brew unit. SUPERB!
My wife tried to get a Keureg out of me, but I talked her into the Intelia Focus refurb instead. Great Shots, great Coffee, very good foam, and so easy and dependable. I actually don't drink as much coffee vs drip because the results are so satisfying.
Thank you SCG and Haley for helping me fix my baby. Great value for the money. Best customer service experience I can recall in quite sometime.
Love it!!!:-) (Posted on 11/14/2014)
Great alternative to NewReview by Allen

The unit is great. After adjusting the grind and water the unit pulls pretty consistent espresso. With strength set at 2 beans and grind fairly fine it pulls at about 20secs per oz of water and create a full body shot. Love it! However the "crapachinotore" might sound like a good idea...Don't expect any microfoam. It also doesnt come with the standard panarrelo the cheaper focus has. With that in mind we would have gotten the black model for the manual wand had we known. Side note: taking off the cappuccinotore works but takes a lot of finesse to get decent foam (Posted on 2/10/2014)
