Product Description

The Refurbished Odea Giro and Odea Giro Plus Espresso Machines 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).

This is a Certified Refurbished Espresso machine

This video may feature a different model year. There may be variations in color, features and included items.

Features & Functionality of the Refurbished Saeco Odea Giro Plus

  • 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 Panarello: The panarello 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 bipass, 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.
Ease of Care and Maintenance 4
Ease of Use 4
Overall Value for the Money 4
How Does it Compare? The Saeco Odea Giro Plus produces great shots and does not need programming. The only difference between the Odea Giro and Giro Plus is the color. Giro is gray (graphite and silver) and the Giro Plus is all silver colored.
Tips and Tricks The milk gets very foamy, but will subside if you let it sit.

For the same price would you get a referbished Odea Giro Plus or a new Xsmall machine? Why?

I know the feature differences, and there are no real deal breakers, so I guess I'm really wondering about new vs used.

Saeco Xsmall Superautomatic Espresso Machine
Saeco Xsmall Superautomatic Espresso Machine
Best Answer: Hi Bo K, I bought a Saeco Xsmall Superautomatic last September (2013) and have been very happy with it. I had a little difficulty in the beginning putting the internal parts back together after taking it apart to see how it works. On line is a very good video of how the various parts are supposed to work and how to replace them after they've been removed. Aside from that..... the only "flaw" in it's design is that if you want to change the coffee beans from regular to decaf you have to literally turn the machine upside down and shake them out. Luckily we all drink regular coffee in our household. I've only had to do this a couple of times when we have company that drinks decaf. It makes delicious cappuccino! We are very happy with our choice.

I've had no experience with the Odea Giro Plus. Sorry.

can you make latte art?
marie h on Jan 9, 2013
Best Answer: With this machine, I believe so. However, my latte art is poor even with the best tools. I'm not the best authority on this. Taste, however, is excellent. Our guests have nothing but praise for every cup, and we're only using 'ordinary' beans.

Which pannarello wand comes with this refurbished model? The black plastic or the silver as shown on the picture? Is the silver wand the one recommended as an update for the Via Venezia?
Thanks
Mary G on May 18, 2014
Best Answer: The Odea Giro comes with the panarello that is shown in the photo, and the type varies based on the color machine you choose. The Odea Giro in Graphite and Silver offers a black plastic panarello, while the Titanium and Silver model has a stainless steel panarello sleeve. These units use a different panarello than the Via Venezia, and so if you wanted a stainless sleeve for the Odea, then you will choose the panarello found at the link below:

when was this (these?) machine(s) built?
A shopper on Jan 27, 2015
Best Answer: Unfortunately, we don't have a specific date of manufacture for these machines. We get them directly from Saeco, after they have been returned to the manufacturer from a store, typically within a store's 30-60 day return policy. We don't, however, know how long they might have been in that store's warehouse, or how long they might have been sitting in Saeco's warehouse before they were able to send them to us.

These machines go through our refurbish department and are thoroughly tested before we clean and box them to sell, so we make sure that everything is operating properly. They may have some minor blemishes or scratches, because they likely were previously owned for a short time. Hope this helps to answer your question!

What pressure does this machine use when brewing?
Vesna N on Jan 4, 2015
Best Answer: The Odea Giro Plus, along with any other superautomatic, will pump water with 15 bars of pressure. This has been determined to be the ideal pressure to get a proper extraction based on the machine's configuration and is utilized by many manufacturers.

Got confused looking at the videos' about the Saeco Odea Giro Plus model that has the bypass for already grinded coffee. Can somone confirm that model that has the bypass.?
Ashok on Dec 26, 2014
Best Answer: The Saeco Odea Giro models (any of them) do not have a bypass doser. If you're looking for a round body style like the Odeas have, but need a bypass doser for pre-ground coffee, then you can check out the Talea Giro Plus or Talea Touch models.

I purchased a refurbished unit about 2 months ago and recently when starting up it makes a very loud squealing noise like it needs to be oiled. I lubricated the brew group per instructions but it still makes this awful sound on start up. Any suggestions as to what might be causing this noise and how to fix it? It sounds normal during brew cycles.
Zachary M on Dec 17, 2014
Best Answer: Try the brew unit cleaning video, and pay careful attention to cleaning the screen on the brew unit, as this is where that noise will come from when it is only as the machine is rinsing, and is usually just due to buildup.

Recently, I got this machine at home. I just have a question when starting up and I am not sure that it is a standard process or not.
Whenever I presse the power button, the lamps are changing to another quickly.
Then it starts draining a bit of hot water from the nozzle which the coffee comes out.

It happens to same machine? or just mine?
It seems that it is circlating the hot water and clean but please help me with this issue.

I really cannot find the process in the manual.

Thank you!!
YG YOON on Sep 28, 2014
Best Answer: What you are describing is a rinse cycle, and this is absolutely a normal process with a machine like this Odea Giro. The lights will flash and a small amount of water will dispense from the brew spouts to rinse older coffee from the unit and preheat the lines. Everything sounds normal with your machine!

What is the visual condition of a Refurbished Odea Giro Plus with Optidose II? How likely am I to see scrapes , ships, marks on the unit when I get it in the mail?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2014
Best Answer: There could definitely be scratches and minor imperfections on a refurbished machine, however larger dents would be replaced on the unit. Part of the reason that the refurbished units are offered at such a deep discount is that there could be some cosmetic imperfections. More information regarding refurbished machines can be found at the link below:

What is a Refurbished Machine?
Generally, it's equipment that was used as a demo model in our retail store or was returned to us or the manufacturer. These machines could have had a fair amount of use.
Our in-house refurbishing team takes the machines apart, rebuilds and replaces parts as needed, repairs, tests and then thoroughly cleanses the equipment.
Refurbished gear will most likely not include the original manufacturer packaging and may not include any non-essential manufacturer-provided accessories. Consumable items included with new equipment (such as water filters or hardness testing strips) will not be included.
Because this equipment is used, there may be aesthetic or cosmetic blemishes that cannot be repaired during refurbishment.
Manufacturer Info
Breville: This equipment is refurbished at Breville's factory and supported by a 6 month warranty directly through them.
Jura Capresso: These machines are factory refurbished by Jura and are covered by a 1 year warranty directly through them.
Seattle Coffee Gear: We refurbish an array of machines at our refurbishing center and offer a 6 month warranty on them directly through us.

Is this refurbished package ready to make espresso right out of the box or separate purchase is necessary such as filters to make it work?
A shopper on Jan 18, 2014
Best Answer: While you can make espresso right out of box from the Refurbished Odea Giro it does not include non essential items like an Intenza water filter, a water hardness test strip, or brew unit lubricant. These items can be purchased separately, or together in the Saeco Maintenance Kit found at the link below:

From the video demo by Gail & Kat (sp?), the time it took the machine to 'pull' the single shot was only 10 seconds. My understanding is a quality espresso 'pull' should take between 20-30 seconds. I have a Delonghi Magnifica and it does it in 22. Am I all wet on this? I have to admit I have no idea of what a 'proper' espresso shot tastes like. I wouldn't even know where to get one to compare (not Starbucks, I'm told). I only know what mine tastes like. So what's up with the 10 seconds? Thanks...
Russ M on Jan 17, 2014
Best Answer: The 20-30 second timing is for a semiautomatic machine with your own grinder, and does not apply to the super automatic machines like this Odea Giro with a built in grinder. The timing on these machines will end up being a bit quicker, and is not really going to fall into the standard 20-30 second bracket, unfortunately. The DeLonghi machines do have a higher dosage of coffee ground, and so your extraction time might be longer, and the shots will be a bit stronger than this Saeco. Hopefully this helps clarify!

Can you use this machine to make a regular cup of coffee ("Americano") automatically?
Michael S on Jan 17, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, you can make an 8oz americano with this Odea Giro by turning the cup dial to the right to brew, which will allow more water to flow through your dosage of ground coffee.

what type of coffee do you recommend for use with this machine? I read that typical espresso beans might be too oily...
A shopper on Nov 27, 2012
Best Answer: For any superautomatic machine, we recommend using a matte finish bean. Generally the darker roasts are oily, and so it is best to go with a medium roast or anything that is drier.

A great machine at a great priceReview by I'm loving it

This machine is my first super-automatic and I think I'm in love. Getting a refurbished machine was the only way I could afford this kind of luxury in my home and I have to say I feel very happy for what I paid. Fresh, hot coffee at the push of a button!

The thing works like a charm. I'm not very good at steaming the milk but it does the job. Brewing coffee couldn't be easier. You can select the strength and vary the water amount to your specifications. But when brewing larger cups I find the first sip is watery if you don't stir it first. (Not a problem if you're adding cream or sugar but I drink it black.)

I called SCG before buying and they were very helpful over the phone. They told me to ONLY use the lighter to medium roasted beans in the machine. I've always preferred darker roasts so I was concerned about how the coffee would taste. I have to say, I don't miss the dark stuff at all. A great machine at a great price! (Posted on 2/20/2015)

No more burned Starbuck Coffee !Review by Thomas

Finally, a Espresso and Cappuccino at home. We have a manual Espresso machine from Aldi which works great but it's manual.

We purchased this Saeco Odea Giro Plus Espresso Machine with Optidose II - Certified Refurbished with a 10% off coupon with the 2 year optional warranty.

It makes great Espresso and with the Wand I make great Cappuccino.

The body is plastic and appears a little fragile. Handling with care is advised.

The machine had been working flawless. Yes, it is a little sensitive, the red Exclamation Mark comes on really easy. Make sure there is enough water in the tank, the bean hopper has beans in it, the dump tray was emptied when the machine was on (otherwise it does not know you did it, it just counts the portions of coffee made), and the steam knob is turn all the way to the desired position.

The only problem is that we drink way too much espresso now :-) (Posted on 5/31/2014)

Great espresso and froth for less than 2 months before complete failureReview by JRM

I really loved this machine- great buy, wonderful espresso, great froth- until today. I have been fastidious on keeping it clean and well maintained. Today when I went to froth some milk, I heard a horrible noise. There was no steam or water. Red alarm light came on and went solid-checked dregdrawer, water reservoir, bean hopper-no problems, red light remained. Then I powered it on and tried to froth again. Noise returned and I powered it off since turning the switch to the off position did not stop the noise. I unplugged it after turning it off, and after replugging to known good outlet, there is no more light, no sound, nothing. It is completely dead. It has lasted me one month and 3 weeks.
That is not good. It is under warranty still, but it must be shipped and then repaired, which will take time and money. I am very disappointed in the short life of this otherwise great machine. (Posted on 3/30/2014)

We purchased this SuperAutomatic on sale and could not be happier. It makes great coffee, keeps us out of Starbucks, and allows me to make a fine latte or americano every day.

My old Odeo Go started leaking all over the counter and I was trying to find information on should I have it repaired or replace it. Living without an espresso machine was not an option.

I bought my Saeco Giro Plus because of the SCG's video reviews. I was a bit unsure that I would be able to produce good coffee with this machine. I was wrong it was simple to set up and use. The key is to find good beans that are not caramelized. One has to remember that if you are looking for an espresso shot you must set the water volume to 1 oz or no more than 1.25 oz. I always use the highest amount of beans to brew my espresso. Also I always dump my water and start with fresh each day. This way I know the machine has enough water.

That said I love my Odea Giro Plus it has exceeded my expectations. I get a great cup of coffee when I want it. I don't go out to a coffee shop any more. It's great to save money and have a (in my view) better cup of coffee than you get in the coffee shop.

Buy this machine you will not regret it. The SCG team is really a great resource for getting into the world of coffee. I had questions and concerns that were addressed quickly and with great customer service. I loved my experience with SCG and if I need another espresso machine it will be SCG all the way baby!

We bought this unit for our vacation home. The refurbished machine is like new. It has worked perfectly and produces a great coffee shot. We liked it so much and it was such a good deal that we bought a second unit.

We have a Saeco Incanto Deluxe in our main home and it is also a great machine. This machine is a higher grade stainless steel machine with a little more flexibility, but at a higher cost. You can't go wrong with either one.

A very strong advantage to the Saeco machines is the Rapid Steam feature which allows quick succession brewing/steaming. (Posted on 12/4/2012)
