Pressurized Crema filter
Convenient design for everyday life
Produces Rich Crema and Aroma
Whether for a ristretto, an espresso, or a café crème, the Poemia Class's 15-bar pump pressure and patentedportafilter makes optimal use of the brewing pressure to produce a true Italian espresso. With every use, the Poemia Class creates hazel-brown crema and extracts the ideal flavor from the coffee. The portafilter also has an Easy Serving Espresso (ESE) pod adapter with filter basket, which enables you to use prepackaged, single-serve shots.
Pannarello Steam Wand for Frothing Milk and Hot Water
It's simple to prepare traditional frothed milk with the Poemia Class's steam nozzle--just insert the Pannarello steam wand into the milk and froth until it reaches the consistency you prefer. Control lights show when your Poemia Class is ready to brew or steam, so you can prepare a cappuccino or latte macchiato with the press of a button.
The nozzle is also a convenient source of hot water for tea, hot chocolate, and other beverages. The frothing tip can easily be removed for cleaning.
Ergonomic Design for Daily Use
This compact espresso machine features high-quality stainless steel housing for an ergonomic design you can enjoy every day. Whether you're refilling the instant coffee and water or emptying the filter and drip tray, you'll have convenient, direct access to all containers.
Cup-Warming Surface Helps Develop Flavor
Conveniently store cups and glasses right on the machine and warm them up before use. Warming the cup helps develop the flavor of your coffee and keeps crema firm. The machine uses heat from the boiler to warm cups, adding to the machine's efficient operation.
Tested and Guaranteed
All Philips Saeco machines are tested with coffee. Although they have been carefully cleaned, there might be some coffee residue in the machine. However, the machine is absolutely new, and it is recommended that you read the instructions before use.
The Philips Saeco Poemia is backed by a limited one-year warranty.

I used JO JO ESPRESSO Medium Dark Roast beans (bought at Amazon) ground very very fine with a Zass turkish hand mill which costs about $75, about the same price as my black Poema. A $10 Krupps blade blender makes a good enough grind for this machine because a non pressurized portafilter is not fussy, as long as the grind is reasonably fine. Anything finer than regular drip grind should work fairly well.
I do not agree with some of the negatives posted here:
The angle of the frother tube does not make it need a shorter cup. The tube points slight out to the side of the machine which allows for a taller cup to fit underneath, that is exactly why Saeco made it point at an angle. The tube allows the cup to sit on the countertop that the coffee maker sits on. There is the same amount of room from the frother tube to the countertop as there is from the the portafilter to the slotted grill tray. I use a standard Pyrex 1 cup measure under both and it just barely fits under both, same amount of clearance, but have to tip it to make it fit. So a frothy cup filling the Pyrex full would spill.
The top is not attached to the maker with a hinge: good! So easy to carry it over to the sink and rinse it off. The very first time used, I knew that it would be no problem doing it another 100 times in one minute: how hard is that?
The slotted tray does slide right off. This is a feature not an issue. It has a bottom on it to catch any drops that spill into the slotted grate. Slide it off carry it to the sink shake it out. I do not spill any more than with a Mr. Coffee drip maker.
I am not a coordinated person, just the opposite. Yet I find this machine a snap to make top rate espresso. If you push the tank all the way down so that the indicator line can be seen, then it will not leak. Unless you turn the 3 position main knob the wrong way at the wrong time. I don't because I read the instructions and kept them handy the first day. By the way when the instructions say to turn the knob to the "|" position it means to the center position. If the instructions do not say the knob goes to the cup (left position) or the wand (right), then the knob should be in the center.
Never drain the tank completely when it says to use all the water to prime or to do anything that has the knob left (cup) or right (wand). Leave a little bit of water in there because running a steam boiler without water blows up railroad engines! The knob should be in the center or the machine turned off or unplugged whenever the tank is removed or empty. This is why I don't mind the on/off switch located on the back. I turn on and off by unplugging and plugging in at the electrical socket. There is a light that goes off and when you flip switch off or unplug (which does the same thing). But I like to see the plug out of the socket too, no explosions !
First cup with this, best coffee I ever had!
EDIT: After using this thing a few days: you should see the wonderful foam head that came out every single time on top the perfect espresso shots, beats Starbucks hands down, the machine is very fast, easy, does not take a $200 grinder because the pressurized portafilter works with any fine ground coffee. Saeco invented the pressurized portafilter. I have not been happier with anything I purchased in my life. By the way the PF, the tank, the tray under the spout all is super easy to clean and keep neat.
A few things to take into consideration to get the most out of this machine;
-- Get a decent burr grinder. We're still in entry level territory but the rule holds you spend as much on the grinder as you do on the machine, maybe more at this level. I tried the $40 Black and Decker but it didn't grind fine or consistent enough to produce good creme. I went with the Baratza Encore after trying out a friends, Dial setting 9 for double shot, 11 for single on the settings works best.
-- Buy good beans ... no great beans. They cost the same anyway. I've tried everything at the grocery store, everything at TJs, even a couple local coffee shops/roasteries around town and nothing good came of them. Your world will change when you find a great roastery and make espresso with their stock. Currently, I buy beans online, they are shipped for free the day they are roasted, and the results are excellent.
-- Get a kitchen scale. Single shot 8g, Double 16g. Grind right before you pull a shot. If there's too much or too fine a grind, the pump will struggle.
-- Shots pull really fast on this type of machine, a little over 10 seconds once it starts flowing. This machine also doesn't require tamping. Results vary when you do from same taste to more acidic.
-- Get a 12oz frothing pitcher and a few cups from a restaurant supply store. Practice, practice, practice. Results will vary based on type of milk, brand of milk, temperature of milk before frothing. Practice, practice, practice.
-- I use the Taylor 9842 thermometer.
Trouble making foam? You'll want to steam milk till about 160F. Run the steam wand for a few seconds into a different container until steam is produced. I get better results when the steam wand is held high in the milk after 100F. Also milk has a HUGE effect on your foam. Try as many as you can from different stores and pick the best one producer. But even then you can get a bad gallon that just won't foam. Then get another gallon and it's fine.
No or quickly dissipating crema? Buy better beans. Check your grind. Use the finest grind that doesn't cause the pump to work too hard. You'll see a nice stream of espresso and this machine loves to make crema. The double portafilter will make more and deeper crema than the single shot. Remove the cup after you've extracted enough. I use a ramekin to reduce the mess.
