Coffee without burnt taste thanks to 100% ceramic grinders
This espresso machine is equipped 100% ceramic grinders. Saeco uses ceramic grinders because of their consistent grind without overheating the coffee bean for an impeccable espresso. Ceramic also ensures long-lasting performance and a totally silent operation.
Play with the coffee's richness with our adjustable grinders
Different coffee blends require different levels of granularity for the full flavor to unfold. The grind granularity of this espresso machine can be adjusted in 8 settings, from the finest grind, for a full bodied espresso, to the coarsest, for a lighter coffee.
Always a clean machine thanks to auto-clean and descaling
Saeco designed this espresso machine to automatically clean its coffee circuit with water upon starting up or switching off of the machine, this delivers a great, fresh taste with each cup of coffee. Regular descaling prolongs your espresso machine’s life. This machine will not only prompt when descaling is needed, the automated descaling process will start on your machine and guides you with clear on-screen messages when you have to intervene. Descaling has never been so easy!
Hygienic milk frothing thanks to automated dual cleaning
This Saeco espresso machine comes with a fully automated dual clean function for its milk carafe. The dual cleaning uses two independent steam cycles to swiftly rinse your milk carafe after each coffee drink you prepare, for a fresh milk drink every time. Hygienic milk frothing was never this easy.

Just you need to add some fresh water and milk (if needed) press a button and wait.
When you are done, it automatically rinses and goes into sleep mode.
Also it's really fast when you want to use it, it doesn't take so much time to heat and prepare the coffee.
You can customize amount of coffee, grinding, amount of water, amount of milk, etc. It automatically saves your settings and next time you'll get right amount.
Drinks you can make: Espresso, Cafe Mocha, Cappuccino, Latte.
Also you can have almost instant hot water, hot milk and steam.
Long story short, for all who've said TL;DR: It's really amazing! I really recommend it, you'll love it. It's easy to use, it's fast and coffee tastes perfect. IMHO it worth every penny.
Update 1-Jan-14: So I have owned this machine for 6 weeks. We love it! I was a bit concerned when my wife and I drank about 2 lbs. of Illy during the first week, but we have settled back into a more normal pattern (around 4-10 espresso shots per day total). For people that are curious, I measured the coffee and milk temperatures with a Thermoworks RT600C temperature probe, right where the liquid exits the machine. We have changed the coffee temperature parameter to the "High" setting because my wife has some travel mugs that are not insulated very well (I should mention that you can remove the dual spout to fit a small travel mug under the coffee dispenser). The coffee measured an average of 175F/80C at the spout, going a little higher and lower (probably depending on the probe's position - hey, I'm not a scientist). On the milk, we keep the carafe in the refrigerator. Going straight from a 34F/1C fridge to machine, the milk is dispensed at an average of 125F/52C. If you want it even hotter, the nice thing about this machine is that you have the steam wand available to do that. I should also mention that the steam wand is handy to dispense on-demand hot water for tea, oatmeal, etc. BTW, the milk will also be hotter if it starts from a warmer temperature. You have to remember that this machine was designed in Europe where "normal" milk is UHT shelf-stable that comes in a box at room temperature (you can find UHT milk on Amazon or at many grocery stores in the organic section). When Europeans do chill their milk, they don't tend to set their refrigerator as low as we do in the US. On cleaning: I spend about 20-30 minutes once a week, usually Sunday night, where I wash the brew group, drip trays, water reservoir, carafe, etc. by hand. It is very easy. I use a vacuum cleaner to suck out any loose ground coffee, wipe down the inside with a hot washcloth/paper towel and that's it. Pretty painless. The monthly maintenance - descaling, milk circuit cleaning, coffee oil removal, takes about double the weekly cleaning time. I bought the Saeco maintenance kit, but it did not include the milk circuit cleaner or coffee oil remover. You have to buy that separately (I chose Urnex brand which was recommended by several people). On coffee beans: as I have mentioned, you need to avoid using oily beans for best results. We have tried several different brands and the Italian brands seem to be the best, which I guess is not too surprising for an Italian machine. A good bang for the buck is Lavazza Crema e Aroma - Amazon sells a 2.2lb (1kg) bag for a little over $20 with the subscribe 'n save option. This is way better than $14-$15 for an 8.8oz can of Illy beans at the local grocery store.
Update 02-Mar-14: In mid-Jan, I replaced the Intenza water filter. Coincidentally around this time, the machine began taking longer to start up in the morning, going through several water priming cycles which was unusual. I thought maybe I had a bad filter that was somehow introducing air into the system (when installing a new filter, don't forget you are supposed to submerge the filter in a bowl of water and squeeze out the air). As stated above, I have been religiously following the maintenance schedule as stated in the user manual. We could "fix" the problem by first making a cup of hot water which would prime the system for the rest of the day. Yesterday I did another descaling maintenance and replaced the filter again. Same priming problem existed. Then I noticed that the maintenance kit had a couple of o-rings. I had never read the instructions that came with the kit, because I assumed they were the same as the manual. I was wrong! Apparently you are supposed to replace the o-ring on the brew group after 500 cycles. This is not stated in the normal user manual! It was fairly simple to replace the ring. I re-install the brew group and voila - problem solved. As an added bonus, the espresso was more tasty and way hotter - I measured it with my probe at 190F/88C. If you remember from high school chemistry, pressure is a variable on temperature, so I'm guessing that air was leaking out as the o-ring became worn, reducing the pressure and thus the temperature. So, for the people who are not satisfied with the coffee temperature after making a lot of espressos, you have probably worn out your o-ring.

Update 08-Aug-14: Even with diligent maintenance, the startup priming problem returned (turn machine on and it endlessly repeated the priming cycle). We used the hot water workaround that I described above, but it began to get worse. The pump was really starting to sound weak and doing a lot of sputtering. I called Saeco to arrange for warranty service. It was a pretty painless process: they e-mailed me a FedEx label and I packed the unit back in the original box. I should note that I purchased my unit from a gourmet kitchen store and it was interesting that there was a "if you purchased from..." phone option specifically for that retailer. The machine went off to a service facility in NYC and was returned to me fully repaired in about a week. They replaced the pump, cleaned, calibrated, and tested the machine. It works like new - maybe better than new, since it seems a little quieter. The repair company even included a complimentary bag of coffee beans. While owning this machine hasn't been a perfect experience, I still think it is worth the money and I am a satisfied customer.
Update: 30-Dec-2015 - the machine is still going strong and we haven't had any more issues. Some people have asked about oily beans and I have added a picture. I think it is self-explanatory. The "dark roast" beans on the left were a Christmas gift bought by someone from a local roaster. You can visibly see the oil (and I found that the paper towel had absorbed a lot of it after I removed the beans). The beans on the right are Filicori Zecchini Gran Crema Forte - not oily and typical of most Italian/medium roast beans. Obviously I will not be using the oily beans in this machine.
1. Setup and operation is virtually the same as the old Incanto.
2. There's no clock in the display (I miss it!)
3. Water tank is MUCH smaller (too small!) and water level can't be seen without opening a cover. That will be an annoyance.
4. Saeco recommends MUCH more daily/weekly/monthly maintenance than before. If I do everything the way it's recommended, I'll be spending a lot of time cleaning!
5. First espresso I made was not hot enough (even though temp is set to "high"). Have to research that...
6. Construction, materials and fit/finish are better than the Incanto. Machine looks like quality (it should, for the price).
I'll re-visit this review after I've used the machine more; for now it's OK, not perfect.
UPDATE after 10 days:
1. Although the dreg drawer is supposed to hold 11 used pucks, the "empty" message comes on after only 7 cycles. The small, internal, drip tray is nearly full after making 7 coffees, too. So, despite the "full size" of this machine, the actual capacities are only about 1/2 what Saeco advertises. So the fact that the water tank and bean hopper are both small is really irrelevant because you have to service the machine more often, anyway! I used to go for 10 days without touching the Incanto (just added a bit of water) -- this new machine needs pretty much full attention twice a week. (and it's just me, a single person, using it).
2. The machine is quieter than my old Incanto. But it seems to take about twice as long to make a coffee, too.
3. The espresso is really, really good. Easily as good as anything from a professional coffee shop.
PS The espresso (and coffee) is hot now. Not sure what the problem was before -- maybe I had something set wrong. But it's fine now.
UPDATE after 5 weeks use:
1. Machine needs service every other day (and I only make 2-3 cups each day). Serviced parts are not supposed to go in the dishwasher so this has to be done by hand -- a real nuisance.
2. If dosage is set on the maximum (3 bean logos) ground coffee collects inside the machine case and needs to be cleaned out. Setting on '2 beans' cures the problem (but results in weaker coffee!).
3. Start-up cleaning cycle sputters and spits as though the pump is not primed. This happens both with and without the water filter installed. Not sure if this is a precursor to a future problem.
4. Contacted Saeco and, after two attempts, was referred to their "Presidential Escalation Resolution Owner" guy (really, that's the title!). Although he at first said "Saeco will do ANYTHING to solve your problems" (I have it on tape) it eventuated that he said I could only return the machine to Amazon, if Amazon would take it (I'm outside the return window). So Saeco basically told me 'tough, you're on your own'. So much for "customer support" on a $2000+ product!
NEEDLESS TO SAY, I'M SORRY I BOUGHT THIS ITEM AND I WOULD NOT BUY IT AGAIN.
