Product Description

The updated Odea Giro Espresso Machine with OptiDose II from Saeco features improved grinder functionality that automatically adjusts to the kind of beans you're using. Saeco also paid close attention to the sensor issues in its first Odea Giro iteration and now offers a choice of five different grind settings that will produce a richer shot. Saeco kept the updated Odea Giro's operations extremely basic: adjust the amount of ground coffee beans used and the brewed volume you desire, then press the brew button once (or twice for a double shot). A high-clearance steam wand accommodates your frothing pitcher without needing to tip it to fit underneath (as with some older Saeco models).

Features & Functionality of the Saeco Odea Giro with OptiDose II

  • Adjustable Ceramic Burrs: Burrs will stay sharper longer and the grinder is much more quiet. You can easily adjust to use your favorite type of bean.
  • Simple Interface: Select your shot volume and press the cup button once or twice for single or double shots.
  • Easy Clean: Removable brew group requires minimal cleaning.
  • Large Water Tank: Fifty ounce removable reservoir can be setup for the Aqua Prima water filter to minimize scale build up. Convenient side access makes it easy to refill and clean.
  • Easy Froth Wand: Panarello attachment makes frothy milk easy to produce without much skill required. It also dispenses hot water for Americanos or tea.
  • Cup Warmer: Pre-warm up to six espresso cups on the top of the machine.
  • Removable Tray: Easily adjust the tray or remove it completely to accommodate taller cups.
Pros
  • OptiDose - Choose between seven and 10.5 grams of coffee to be dosed into your shot for a richer flavor.
  • Rapid Steam - Quickly heats up for steaming so you don't have to wait much longer for it to be ready for frothing. This functionality means you'll need to pull some hot water through the steam wand after you're finished steaming so you don't burn your shot.
Cons
  • No Bypass - We wish you could make shots using the pre-ground bypass, giving you more coffee brewing options.
  • No SBS - Unlike the Talea models, this doesn't have the Saeco Brew System that allows you to change the pressure for more or less crema.

How Does it Compare? The Saeco Odea produces great shots and does not need programming. The only difference between the Saeco Odea Giro and the Giro Plus is color. The Giro Plus is silver and the Giro is gray.
Tips and Tricks The milk gets very foamy, but will subside if you let it sit.

What is a good bean for the Saeco Odea Giro machine? Just purchased machine- I used beans from a local coffee shop and espresso is not strong enough, too watered down and crema is thin.
A shopper on Nov 24, 2012
Best Answer: So far I have only tried 2 beans, Java Sunda Ambet Kasih and Guatemala Finca La Esmeralda Red Bourbon both roasted to full city. I thought the Java was especially good. I purchase the green beans from SM and roast at home.

I presume the doser was set to max, "three beans". I thought "one bean" was best for the Java and "two beans" for the Guatemala. I have not experimented with the grind yet but you may get better results with a grinder adjustment.

Regards and good luck!

I've had my machine for just under two years. For about the last month, there have just been mushy grinds in the dredge drawer. Prior to that, I got the nice little pucks. I haven't changed the grind settings and I'm using the same coffee beans that I've always used. Any ideas what's happening? I'm wondering if I need to have some parts replaced. Thanks!
Sarah S on Dec 30, 2014
Best Answer: Sounds like you just need to adjust your grind setting coarser as you're beginning to develop a clog, which is why the grounds are soupy. Try going coarser by 1 notch, then brew 4-5 brew cycles, and you'll probably have better luck. The grind setting will sometimes need to change depending on the age of the beans, a fresh bag, or just the machine developing a bit of oil build up over time, especially if you try to use a darker bean or beans with small patches of oil on them.

Best Answer: John,

I have had this coffee maker Giro Plus for 9 months now. I love it. The first one they shipped to me was totally dead, they replaced it with a new one in a week.It works fine so far. I read a lot of bad reviews from different sites and I was very hesitated to buy one, but since I tasted the coffee from my brother's home, I could not wait to buy my own. BTW my brother bought it five years ago, an old model, still working and making delicious coffee.

Anyway I am happy with my purchase and it makes amazing coffee.

How is the coffee temperature?
Heidi D on Jan 21, 2015
Best Answer: It's just comfortable to drink immediately - not sure what that is in degrees. I tend to use a fair bit of milk, so for me the temp depends more on how hot I make the milk. Trick for the foaming wand: attach it loosely so you can pull it off and rinse it after each use. Takes seconds, and the calcium never builds up. So it's not a pain to clean, so you don't hesitate to use it, so you make the milk hot, so the coffee's hot... Overall, we're very happy with this machine. Serves an office of 10 and it's flexible enough for all our different coffee preferences.

How many years can I get from this Saeeco Odea Giro? I make 3 espressos per day. Thanks
A shopper on Aug 19, 2014
Best Answer: Typically super automatic machines like this Odea Giro will last somewhere between 5-8 years with normal use, but maintenance should occur regularly. Of course there are exceptions to every rule, and so a repair could be necessary during the life of your machine, and your unit may last longer or shorter than this period.

Water drips into a dreg drawer and forms a pool. Is this normal?

can this machine handle making up to 15 espressos a day?
Sera C on May 22, 2012
Best Answer: Brewing up to 15 espressos per day would be on the heavy side, but the machine should be able to handle it. You may find that some of the normal wear and tear items such as o-rings and gaskets will need replaced more often than for less frequently used machines, since these are correlated to how many brew cycles the machine goes through.

This macchina is so good and small we take it with us sometimes when traveling. Don't use overly oily beans. the dump box light goes on after so many shots NOT necessarily when it's full! Rinse the brew group every few days and descale monthly. Our main machine is an older Vienna deluxe which we prefer, slightly, the coffee produced and it has much larger capacities. But we do love our beautiful orange giro. You won't be disappointed. (Posted on 3/25/2015)
Really a great investmentReview by NWaldman

I've had this for almost two years now and it's still going strong. I am very particular about coffee, to the extent that I can't drink most coffees at major chains. I have been very, very pleased by this machine. The crema it produces is perfect; the temperature is perfect; the convenience is perfect.

My only gripe is, in the grand scheme of things. a minor one. Sometimes the machine tells you that you need to empty the sludge container, when in fact it doesn't, so what you have to do is the container out and then wipe the floor of the space which contains the sludge container. That can be a bit of a pain. It happens quite often.

Still, for the price and how good it's holding up and how good the coffee is, you can't go wrong. This is one of my best little investments! (Posted on 1/21/2015)

I bought this for my husband *wink* for Christmas. Makes wonderful coffee and performs like a champ. We occasionally have the errant flashing red light and have to unplug and reset the machine. But 99% of the time this little guy is flawless. We descale once a month (don't drink tons of coffee through the day, so once a month works well). My only complaint is the price. I'd like to buy one of these for my dad for Christmas this year, but that price really hurts! But overall, one of my best purchases in my kitchen! (Posted on 12/3/2014)

(I thought I already reviewed this...oh well...age does that to a person. However...) My Solis Master 5000 bit the dust after 6-7 years, and I did the traditional internet search which left me thinking about instant coffee. But I found Seattle Coffee Gear & the Saeco Odea at a great price. Suspicious still, I called and a great young woman spent a lot of time with me explaining the machine and assuring me it was comparable to my Solis which would probably cost twice as much to replace. I also checked out the videos which were great.

I've had the machine for about three weeks, and it's everything I hoped! Great espresso with thick crema, easy to make cappuchino (however you spell it,) and good American coffee. It's also very quiet. Also, if you run out of beans while making coffee, you can fill the canister & it continues where it was. Take that Solis!

A few minor cons: small water container and no easy way to see how much is left. Also, the instructions for steaming milk in the manual are wrong! It says to turn on the water button...which gives you hot water. Keep the water button off & you get great steam. Finally, the machine stops when you lift off the coffee cannister; would be nicer if it kept on going. But these are all minor complaints.

I also called about the right kind of coffee and so far, the recommendations have been excellent.

Hope they get it back in stock at this price. Definitely worth the price. (Posted on 9/24/2014)

I spend way too much money on coffee because it only works every third or fourth grind. The machine grinds the coffee, but doesn't make the coffee. So I have to grind again, and again, and again.

Hi I wrote a review three months after I bought this machine. Now it has been one year, I like to write a new review. The machine is still working and making good coffee. It isworth every penny. I ordered many different coffee beans. The more expensive one does not mean better taste. I used illy, Lavazza, Eight O'clock and Starbucks. My best choice is Lazazza and Eight O'clock. Starbucks is OK. Illy is expensive but does not taste as good as Lazazza or Eight O'clock. My best choice is Lazazza and if I want to buy more economic beans, I go for Eight O'clock. Enjoy!

Have had this about 1 year and just returned it for warranty service for third time. Make 5 cups of expresso per day, do a descale and full clean once a week (takes a lot of time), Every other day deal with error messages (disposal full when it isn't). Water pump just failed for 2nd time - spent hours diagnosing first alone and then with tech support. Grinder seized last time. Service complained that we should not use oily beans or very fine grind!
When it works it makes great expresso and cappuccino. I would never get another. Will go back to separate grinder and simple expresso machine (previous Gaggia Classic lasted 8 years with rarely any fuss).

Makes excellent lattes. Simple to use, love the automatic functions.

The warning light is a bit excessive, very tempermental and must watch carefully the waste water and coffee grounds bins, empty them constantly. Getting used to managing it but still annoying, the warning light will go on with extremely little water in the waste bin.

Removed the pannarello from the wand and just use the bare wand. the pannarello is too clumsy to use. (Posted on 3/15/2013)

My brother has this machine in an old model. Every time I went there, I enjoyed the coffee. I want the machine so bad, but after I read so many reviews from Amazon.com, I was so afraid of a lemon product. Finally I decided to take a chance to buy one. I had this machine for three months now. I am waiting this long just want to make sure it can last at least three months.

I received the first machine in a week after I ordered, and it was dead. I was very disappointed. After calling the SCG Company, they sent a replacement in a week. The second machine works just like they promised and it makes great coffee. I leave the ‘dial button’ in the middle and use ‘two bean’ button. It makes great 'every day' coffee. I cannot wait to the morning to make myself a fresh coffee. The second machine works nicely so far. I hope it can last for years to come. I love the coffee it makes, and I love to make cappuccino in front of my guests. SGC has the cheapest price for this model 'Saeco Odea Giro plus Opti II' on the market.

The machine makes good coffee, and if you are a coffee lover, it is worth to buy it.

My wife and I decided on this machine after the great reviews from SCG. The videos are fun to watch. I bought it for x-mas gift to my wife and I and we used it all day for our family dinner and evening party x-mas day. We used up two bags of beans through it the first day !! Everyone loved our cooffee service. The opti -dose adjustable coffee strength is really a must have feature. We also purschased the milk to perfection frothing pitcher. It works super for any beginner and creates great froth, just be patient with it.
The machine is very easy to operate, just read the instructions... step by step.... and you will be happy. We love our new machine. Our son bought one exactly like it the very next day after x-mas from SCG. You will not be disappointed ;-)

This is my first high dollar coffee maker and I absolutely LOVE it!! It's an early Christmas gift. I like the espresso shots and my husband likes the regular cup of coffee with cream. I was amazed at the tastes I can now taste. Just ordered some pumpkin spice syrup to make lattes. It is well worth the money! And speaking of money, Seattle Coffee Gear has the best price around. I shopped all over the internet, and they were at least $100 cheaper. I love their videos and all the info they have on their machines. I was a little worried about cleaning it, but it much easier than expected. Considering buying one for my 82 yr old father-in-law. Very impressed with my machine, and with SCG!!

I have purchased three of these machines. I have had one for two years now. I love it. I know there are better machines, but they are also three time the price. I bought one for my son and we had to sent it back twice. SCG made it right the first time. The next time we dealt with Seaco and they sent us a new machine with many appoligies. The new one is fabulous. I just purchased another one for my new son-in-law as a Christmas gift. He won't drink any other coffee now that he has had coffee made in these machines. It is really worth it if you are a coffee lover. Easy to use. I use french roast beans. Love that you can set the amount of beans you want ground. From a regular but spectacular morning cup to espresso shots to cappucino. It is great. (Posted on 11/21/2012)

It took me a while to work up the courage to spend $500 on a coffee machine. However, after finding the good prices on SeattleCoffeeGear.com I made the leap. I've had the machine for a little over a month now, and I'm loving it. The shipping was super fast, the item was well packaged, and it arrived as described.

With 2 kids, a dog, and full time jobs, this coffee machine has made it a breeze for my wife and I to get an excellent cup of coffee during our hectic mornings.

I love the lazy susan design, as it makes accessing the water and dredge trays super easy.

The item is well designed and easy to use. After selecting the strength of espresso with the 3 levels of coffee grinds, and choosing the amount of water with a dial, you just press the coffee button once or twice for one or two shots of espresso, and voila.

Nothing really negative to say about it so far; however, I only gave 4 starts for quality due to it being mainly built out of plastic. However, so far the plastic seems durable, and probably keeps the cost of the machine reasonable.

I would recommend this product, and SeattleCoffeeGear.com! (Posted on 11/2/2012)

After many months of research, we purchased this machine a month ago. It is the best!! So easy to use and makes excellent espresso. It is perfect for us because we are too busy with our children to spend time preparing and cleaning a semi automatic machine and separate grinder. With everything built in there is no mess and clean up is a snap. There is a lot of talk about the milk frother and I think it does best with small amounts of milk at a time. When we do it this way we get great foam every time. (Posted on 9/9/2012)

We have not had this machine very long, so I can't talk about reliability but the machine itself is phenomenal. We had a Vienna Plus before and there is NO comparison. The Giro with the rapid steam allows you to froth milk and go right into brewing without having to get the temperature down first. The adjustments for the optiDose are easy to do and work great. It just gets a much better cappuccino out of the same beans than the Vienna Plus.
Love it. Hope it will prove to be reliable. (Posted on 7/13/2012)

Great Crema - And R2D2 Too~Review by Java Jive Talkin'
Quality
Value
Price
In one day I have pulled all different sorts of shots on the Odea Giro...short intense espressos with great cream....longer fuller cups a la Americano. In no time I was able to set up and begin using this wonderful and attractive machine. It takes a short introduction to "kicking the tires" of the form, function, and parts on this lovely machine both with the manual and test drive...but from there I can see we are both going to be very happy. Note: I am primarily an espresso drinker, not capuccino or latte. I have no doubt it will make lovely froth for milk. The cup warmer surface and feature could be improved (seems to take a while to heat up cups - maybe that's why it's "passive") but this is a small quibble. Great control and intuitive interface. A lot of features at a great price and in a very attractive package - R2D2!

Pros:
Design, Easy To Use, Easy To Clean, Great Taste

Cons:

This was a gift for friends whose old Odea just broke down. I got them the refurbished, and at a recent visit, they proudly displayed their new, and much better machine. Even though i've only owned Juras myself, I have always been impressed with the great coffee quality, and the easiest milk froth maker ever. It was a great gift, for a very low cost, and looks/works like brand new.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Best milk froth ever, Quick Brewing, Great Taste

Cons:

Excellent improments...Review by quantum

Because I deal with physics/chemistry/mathematics around the world, hours awake not desired. This updated version is the best for the $$$. There were concerns that needed to be addressed, and they did, Saeco does want to be in the mix with other name brands. It has been very dependable and all previous reviews last year as of today do not apply to this model.

Pros:
Commercial Grade

Cons:

I owned a Saeoc Vienna Digital for a few good years until it became unrepairable lately. Was a bit sceptic when I purchasedthe Giro Odea.
I am very happy now. Simple machine, great form factor, and my esspressos are better than ever.

Pros:
Form factor, Easy To Use, Great Taste

I've wanted a superautomatic for some time and when our manual espresso machine started having issues...I had my chance. My wife and I only use it for a double in the morning to start our day and it has been great. Great coffee...great crema...easy. Thanks Saeco (and Seattle Coffee Gear) for a wonderful product

Quick Brewing, Easy To Use, Easy To Clean, Great Taste

I'm impressed...Review by Griff the Business Owner

I bought this unit to satisfy my coffee cravings. I'm impressed with the quality I received for the money. My only critiques are ones that knew going into to the purchase that face a lot of super automatics; that is, the taste won't be world class (but certainly fine for my tastes) and weak milk frothing capacity (it can't warm up 20 oz of cold milk to 150 degrees without overheating). Overall, I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. I think I'll probably shop here the next time I need a coffee toy fix.

As a side note, I bought it for my office and everybody loves it. It's a nice (and cheap) way to boast moral and productivity.

Pros:
Quick Brewing, Easy To Use, Easy To Clean, Great Taste

Cons:
It can be slightly buggy (Posted on 9/2/2010)

There are two coffee drinkers in this house and we both love it. It is easy to use and the coffee is fresh, hot and has a great taste. Also like the ability to choose the size and strength of the coffee you are wanting at that time. Would definatly recommend it to a freind. also would recommend Seattle Coffee Gear as well.

Pros:
Easy To Clean, Quick Brewing, Easy To Use, Great Taste

Cons:
