This machine is best when used with coffee from illy
Saeco S-TG-ST talea Giro Super Automatic espresso machine.
I purchased this machine for my wife before we moved in our new home and I know that she loves it more than any other gift she has received.
We have had it for some three months now and we both agree that the quality of the espresso is as good as we tasted in Italy, especially when using the coffee from illy.
All of these machines need to be taken cared of and cleaned on at least a weekly basis, so if you are looking to treat it like a regular coffee machine and not ever maintain it, it may not perform up to your expectation.
However, this has been a blessing to me and my wife and I actually look forward every time to making our treat espressos every morning. I love it because my wife is always up and about every morning for our morning coffee. Recommend you try the Arabica Beans for a true taste of coffee. Thanks!
