Product Description

Never again will you have to wait a 'minuto' for a fresh espresso, coffee or cappuccino. The Saeco Minuto Carafe provides a freshly brewed caffeine jolt with just a touch of a button. Simply adjust the coffee lever down for espresso or keep the lever in the upright position for coffee. Navigate the home screen by choosing from five different coffee strengths ranging from extra mild to extra strong. When a milk-based drink is a must, remove the hot water spout and attach the milk carafe for a one-touch cappuccino.

Features & Functionality of the Saeco Minuto Carafe HD8773/47 Superautomatic Espresso Machine & Coffee Maker

  • Coffee or Espresso - Much like the original Minuto, the Minuto Carafe features a dual pressure system that brews coffee or espresso using each brew's ideal pressure. All with just a flip of a switch!
  • One Touch Cappuccino - The removable milk carafe allows you to create a frothy cappuccino with just a touch of a button. Remove the milk carafe and attach the water spout when it's time for tea or hot cocoa.
  • Bypass Doser - Available for your favorite pre-ground blend.
  • Grind Settings - Adjust the fineness of your grind using the provided grind adjustment key.
  • Accommodating Spout - The adjustable spout can be removed for a little extra cup clearance, allowing you to fit a travel mug just under 7 inches tall.
  • Ceramic Grinder - Ceramic burrs guarantee fresh, never overheated coffee which is essential for a delicious cup.
  • Programming - Not only can you program the length of your drink, but also the coffee temperature (max, medium or min), length of time until stand-by mode, display contrast for easy viewing and the descaling cycle.
  • Brew Strength - The Minuto Carafe is helping you brew your ideal cup by offering five different strength settings.
  • Carefree Carafe - The handy addition of the carafe system makes one-touch cappuccino making possible on a Minuto!
  • Dealers Choice - With just a flip of a switch you can decide if it's an espresso or coffee kind of morning.
  • Loud - Much like the original Minuto, this machine is noticeably louder than others.
  • Awkward - The exterior port for the removable water spout and milk carafe is located on the left side of the machine, which makes removing and reattaching the spout and carafe a little awkward. However, this may be perfect for left-handed espresso lovers!
How Does it Compare?

While the Minuto Carafe underwent rigorous SCG testing, we recorded the following temperatures:

  • Espresso - A shot of espresso was around the 150°F temperature range.
  • Coffee - A cup of medium and long coffee was around the 170°F temperature range.
  • Steamed Milk - A cup of steamed milk was around the 130°F temperature range.

Does the milk carafe need to be manually cleaned after each use?
A shopper on Jun 20, 2015
Best Answer: When you're not storing milk in the fridge with it, yes, you'll want to clean it after each use. This helps it perform optimally and is also the most sanitary way to keep your milk fresh and free of old milk residue.
