It’s a mid-priced superautomatic espresso machine from Philips Saeco. Made with the best craftsmanship in Italy, this espresso and latte machine allows you to make a perfect coffee drink — every time. You don’t do manual grinding, measuring, and tamping because the machine does it all for you.

What’s more interesting, you can also use your pre-ground coffee in this machine. It has 11 customizable drink options, no user profiles, though. But, why worry about user profiles when you can get consistent and great-tasting coffee from this well-priced superautomatic coffee machine?


  • Extracted coffee or milk-based drinks are hot enough
  • Nice milk foam and automatic frothing and steaming
  • Integrated ceramic grinder for fresher and tastier coffee
  • Has just enough grinding settings of 10 grind levels
  • Offers 11 programmable coffee and milk-based drink options
  • Compact body with the front and top made of brushed aluminum
  • Nice digital readout coupled with easy to use programmable buttons
  • Doesn’t have cumbersome maintenance


  • Some water will fall into your cup before steaming begins
  • Can save preferred settings, but no profiles to assign it to
  • Need to insert the hot water dispensing spout if you need hot water
  • Remove the milk carafe if you need to remove the drip tray system
  • No cup warmer, you can only heat cups by running hot water
  • Unusual shape of the bean hopper, kind of difficult to funnel beans in


Design and Specifications

The first thing you’ll notice in this coffee machine is it’s compact. Period. There are not many protrusions and excess parts. What we mean by this is that, instead of a separate container, the milk carafe can be easily latched in front of the machine.

Compare the placement of the milk container between Saeco Xelsis and PicoBaristo. If you have seen both, you will agree with us that this model has a more compact design than the more sophisticated Xelsis.
