Most of these machines use the same grinder and the same brew group, so these are the differences you want to look for:
- size (from supercompact to full size, smaller machines require more frequent tending)
- separate boiler for steam (saves time if you make lots of cappuccinos)
- grinder adjustability (from fine to coarse)
- grounds settings (basic models process a fixed amount of coffee, fancier ones let you adjust that amount)
- bypass doser for ground coffee (lets you make a one-off cup of decaf, for instance)
Basic models usually come with a plain panarello for frothing milk, the "cappuccinatore" like on this Intelia Deluxe is an improvement over that, and even fancier models have a removable milk carafe you can store in the fridge and just take out and plug in when you make a cappuccino.
The Intelia Deluxe checks pretty much all the boxes:
- Large capacity water tank (compatible with water filter,) beans hopper and dregs receptacle means you don't have to refill/empty too often
- Ground coffee bypass doser
- 10 grinder settings
- 5 settings for the amount of coffee
The one box it doesn't check: double boiler, so there is a slight wait period when you switch between steam and coffee. It's very fast, just a few seconds, and double boiler models are considerably more expensive so it's still a good compromise.
I have been using this machine for a month and I absolutely love it! The ceramic burr grinder is remarkably quiet compared to my previous machines. I also appreciate the warming cycle when it powers up and the cleaning cycle when it goes to stand-by mode, however it's important to know that it runs water through the system, which means you should always leave a glass under the spout, as the drip tray has limited capacity.
The drip tray runs through the entire machine and has several connected compartments, which helps prevent spills when you empty it -- however this won't help you much if you wait until the last minute.
The machine requires access from the front for the drip tray, the top to refill the beans, and the right side to remove the brew group (you have to rinse it under the tap once a week).
Unlike earlier generations, which used the same warning light to complain of many error conditions, the Intelia has a graphic display that glows red and shows an icon to indicate the exact error (out of water, out of beans, dregs receptacle full, replace filter, decalcify, etc...)
The telescopic spout adjusts to clear mugs and lowers all the way down for espresso cups.
There are several versions of the Intelia Deluxe: this model with the brushed steel finish comes with the capuccinatore, but you can also get an all plastic model that comes with a plain panarello and costs considerably less. Since you can buy a Gaggia cappuccinatore for under $30, up to you to decide if that steel front plate look is really worth that much to you. Also, if you make mostly cappuccinos, consider spending a little more on the Saeco Moltio Carafe, which is based on the same hardware but adds interchangeable beans hoppers and a built-in cappuccino function with a convenient removable milk carafe.
I bought my Intelia Deluxe directly from Seattle Coffee Gear. They're an awesome resource and I love all the videos they put up on youtube: demos, service and maintenance, they're experts and not afraid to share.
Okay, the bottom line of this rambling review: this is a wonderful, reliable and very versatile machine, just be aware that you can save a lot of money by choosing the plastic finish, and that the slightly more expensive Moltio is a better choice for cappuccino fans. Enjoy!
and read that it was not reliable in a review. I looked for the next level Saeco which just happened to be the Intelia Deluxe. Reviews were positive and I went with this choice which cost about $900...Let me just say that I love to watch her cradle her cup of coffee with a smile and tell me she will never go back. I hit it out of the park...so much so that I got one for my daughter on her upcoming July 2017 wedding. This one will also be a Grand Slam!!! Thank you, Seattle Cofffee!!!
Of course you have to use good coffee with it,...we use Lavazza Gold. You may have one better.
