Sometimes, simplicity is just what you needed. The Saeco Xsmall goes a long way toward simplifying your morning cup of coffee with parsed-back programmability and easy to navigate analog controls. Its all-in-one grinder, brew unit and dosing controls make mornings easy without the hassle of navigating menus or manual brewing. Even milk-based drinks are a dial-turn away with a swing-out panarello steam arm that stretches and textures milk for you. Coupled with a small footprint and an affordable price tag, the Xsmall offers a curated coffee experience for anyone.

Features and Functionality

  • Removable Brewing Unit - Easy to remove, rinse and replace, which helps keep maintenance simple.
  • Ceramic Burr Grinder - The adjustable grinder preserves aroma without overheating the beans.
  • Energy-saving Mode - The Xsmall enters stand-by mode automatically after one hour.
  • Volumetric Controls - Program you preferred brew volumes with two programmable buttons.
  • Automatic Rinse Cycle - Before it enters and when it returns from stand-by mode, the Xsmall automatically rinses the coffee circuit.
  • Small Footprint - The Xsmall is Saeco's most compact and affordable machine.
  • Makes Great Coffee - The Xsmall manages to pack in a good expresso experience without cutting any corners.
  • No Bypass Doser - You won't be able to use pre-ground coffee with this machine.
  • No Oily Beans - We don't recommend using oily beans with this built-in grinder.
SCG Staff Says...

Don't forget! You can brew two shots at a time by taping the brew button twice.

How do I identify "non-oily beans"?
David E on Jun 11, 2017
Best Answer: "Oily" beans are usually roasted very dark and the oil rises to the surface of the bean. This oil causes fits with grinders - fouling and clogging the grinder burrs and chute. Examples are beans from Starbucks, Tully's and Peet's. Look for beans roasted light to medium with a dull surface. You will have better tasting coffee and less troubles with the over-roasted oils fouling the grinder.

Good day! Could you tell me what is the cup height that this machines allows? Thanks
Carlos S on Feb 6, 2016
Best Answer: The 4" cup is too tall. 3.5" is fine. We usually keep a small cup there and fill it a couple times for the travel cups!

Can the temperature be controlled on the frother to go hotter or colder and does the frother heat the milk while frothing or does the milk have to already be warmed in microwave before using the frother?
coffee snob on Dec 17, 2016
Best Answer: The steam temperature on the Xsmall is not adjustable, but it does a good job of heating and frothing at the same time!

Hope this helps!

Hi is making an Americano completely automatic, or do I have to do more to have the shot in hot water, basically?
Atari on Jan 1, 2017
Best Answer: For a true Americano, you'll have to hit the button for a shot, then the button for hot water and put your cup under the steam wand. Alternatively, you could try pulling longer shots to see if you like the flavor instead.

Hope this helps!

Is there enough room for a regular mug to fit under the spout? Or is the drip tray removable so that larger mugs can be placed under the spout?
mac21mbe on Dec 6, 2016
Best Answer: Cup clearance on the Xsmall is pretty small, and you can't remove the drip tray while brewing. I'd recommend picking up some regular shot glasses to use.

Hope thi helps!

Can you just make a regular cup of coffee with this or does it only do smaller espresso shots/coffees?
A shopper on Nov 23, 2016
Best Answer: You can't make a classic cup of drip like your thinking, but you can make a lungo (extra water pulled through an espresso shot) or an americano (hot water added to an espresso shot). I find that americanos have a rounder, sweeter cup than drip coffees.

Hope this helps!

On the Xsmall Vapore, can you adjust the amount of grinds? If not, will you be having the refurbished Saeco Odea Giro with optidose in soon? Thank you, Steve
Stephen H on Nov 8, 2015
Best Answer: You cannot adjust the dose. The Odea Giro is no longer made so we have no estimated time frame on when or if we will be getting any refurbished Odea Giros.

I've heard that Saeco machines grind and store the last two grinds before brewing (meaning if you drink two cups a day you are drinking day old grinds). Is this true? Does the Saeco xsmall grind then brew immediately using that grind?

Excellent Entry-Level Super AutomaticReview by
I've used this machine for almost a year now. It does pretty much exactly what it says. Yep, small water reservoir means frequent refilling. Mine is always next to the sink so I don't mind. Yep, it's definitely a drag to not be able to use ground coffee as well when desired (or needed- like when you get a bag as a gift or something). Certainly factors I'll consider when, I hope years from now, this machine starts to give up the ghost.

But for now, wow. This thing has pretty much revolutionized my life as a coffee drinker. I was just at the mall, for instance. Felt tempted to get a coffee drink. Remembered I had this at home, and knew I could not only make anything offered at the mall, I could make it to my exact preference. Certainly if the machine does indeed last a few years, and if you factor in maybe $20 a month in coffee drinks (which a person can easily do), you are talking $720 dollars versus spending 350-500 on the machine (got mine on sale for close to 350).

That said, it isn't quiet a perfect five star machine. I do find it finicky sometimes, in terms of getting red warning lights. These aren't terribly frequent, but happen enough that someone who is not mechanically inclined would get frustrated. In my experience, these warnings are either solved by:

1. Turning the machine on and off again.
2. Making sure the basket that contains the spent grounds is empty and pushed all the way in. Sometimes the vibrations of the machine cause it to dislodge just enough to cause a warning.
3. Turn the steam on, and allow some steam to pass. The manual says sometimes water needs to go through the circuit. (Posted on 1/6/2018)
Great little machineReview by Flightlover
I'll preface this with the fact that i bought this machine as a refurb at SCG, thus the 5 star price & value rating. I still think it is 4 star range price and value new. But on the important stuff....
I really like this machine! Ease of use is a 9, no fussing and no mess making your own portafilters. The coffee taste is delicious. I like being able to froth the milk to the temperature of my own liking. The one thing i would say is that you don't get coffee shop level micro froth - its bubbly....not quite like a coffee shop. Overall 4.5 stars and highly recommended. My nickname you wonder, very delicious coffee roaster in bedford, NH (no, i dont work for them....just love their coffee) (Posted on 1/4/2018)
Great machine with a great valueReview by Trevor
I used this machine for about 3 years before I started to run into a leak possibly from the Brew group. But it's easily made a minimum of 3-4 Americanos a day for it's entire life. The only complaint I have is its water tank is small but I knew this going into it. This means it will make 3 Americanos per tank before you gotta refill. I've ran everything from dark to light roasts through it dry and oily (although not recommended) and it's never faulted. I've even had room mates pour pre ground coffee into it not understanding that it doesn't take it and it still would work and make a good coffee. I've loved this machine but the water leaking onto my cabinets has become annoying. I highly recommend the machine regardless especially if you're looking for a great machine that will fit into a tight space. Would make a great gift for someone for Christmas or even a house warming gift!

The hot water out of the wand works great for teas and hot chocolate and the steam works great for whatever you want to do with it but be cautious as it's initial spray can burn you or scare you especially if you just ran hot water through it before steaming.

The auto clean function is nice but I recommend placing a small cup or bowl under it after every cup as the tray fills up kinda quickly and the little orange float sticks eventually and might not notice about to overflow, plus it helps keep fruit flys from accumulating (Posted on 8/22/2017)
