Mornings are a struggle. Make them that much easier with the Saeco Moltio Carafe Espresso Machine. The Moltio features a plug-in milk carafe, removable bean hoppers and easy one touch controls to make your journey to java stress-free. And, with a quick-start thermoblock system you can get from cold start to caffeine in less than two minutes.

Features and Functionality of the Saeco Moltio Carafe HD8869/47 Superautomatic Espresso Machine - Certified Refurbished

  • Removable Bean Hopper - Removable bean hoppers make it easy to clean and swap out beans.
  • Double Thermoblock - Dedicated steam and brew thermoblocks offer unbeatable on-demand heat.
  • Removable Milk Carafe - A refrigerator-ready milk carafe makes it easy to store milk when not in use.
  • Ceramic Burrs - Heat-resistant ceramic helps preserve the delicate aromatics of espresso beans.
  • Pre-aroma - Programmable pre-infusion helps to reduce channeling and improves shot-to-shot consistency.
  • Programmable - Set and save your ideal drink temperature, coffee dosing and water to milk ratio.
  • Hot-Swap Hoppers - Two hoppers means twice the options and easier cleanup. More machines should have this feature.
  • Touch and Hold Programmability - No submenus here! You'll set bean strength and heat separately, and program each one-touch button for length of shot and milk.
  • Futuristic - The gunmetal colorway makes the Moltio look straight out of a Sci-fi flick.
  • Creaky Buttons - The buttons on the front of the Moltio are cut into the face of the machine. While it gives the machine a sleeker look, they feel pretty creaky and are potentially easy to break.
  • Oily-Bean Free - As with most superautomatics, oilier roasts will clog the grinder over time.
SCG Staff Says...

Beware, it's possible to pull steam through the removable hot water spout, and it makes a big, spluttery mess.

How Does it Compare?

A step below the Saeco Gran Baristo, The Moltio is a little bigger and lacks profile programming. It does add physical buttons and a wider trip tray however

Tips and Tricks
  • The drip tray locks in! Buttons are located on both sides at the back of the tray.
  • Like most of Saeco's automatic frothers, water condenses in the top section of the carafe. When making a milk drink, make sure to put your cup under the spout after the first burst of water is purged.

Hello how can I get my coffee rich and thick and not watery. Is there anyway to adjust it so that
The coffee is thicker.?
A shopper on Dec 27, 2017
Best Answer: The very last button on the left allows you to control the strength of your coffee. You can choose between 1 to 4 or 5 beans ( can't remember the exact number). You can change this before every cup you make, whether it's a long coffee or latte. You can also use the program seeing to control the amount of water you want with each coffee or latte or macchiato. You press and hold the button and a stop message will appear on the screen so you can stop the amount of water at anytime while it's brewing.

Am I able to get long coffee from this? I don't mean just a double shot of espresso, but like an 8 oz coffee.
EUGENIA P on Oct 13, 2016
Best Answer: The Moltio lets you program length of water, so you can make a lungo, or add hot water to a double shot for Americanos, but does not offer any pulse brew option for drip coffee. Hope this helps!

Great machine at a fantastic price!Review by Wana
I purchased a refurbished Saeco Moltio Carafe from SCG. It arrived incredibly well packed with all of the factory documentation. I was amazed at how clean the machine was, inside and out. It looked brand new! I am thrilled with the quality of the espresso and coffee this machine makes. You can adjust the strength (aroma) and quantity very easily so you can get just the cup you want. The automatic milk frother works very well and is easy to clean. The foam it puts out is creamy and delicious! I highly recommend this machine! (Posted on 10/6/2016)
