Reviewing Starbucks espresso machine: 3 reasons on why you should get Sirena. 

Updated [6th April 2020]. Currently, doing a quick search of Starbucks Espresso Machine will give you the Nescafe Dolce Gusto (with Starbucks Coffee Capsules of course). 

This collaboration comes about from the 2018 Nestle acquisition of the rights to sell Starbucks Coffee globally outside of its stores. Nestle paid $7.5 billion for this right. At that point in time, this business is worth about $2 billion dollars to Starbucks. 

And this should be a right decision because in 2019, Nestle makes a quarter of billion dollars from it.

But, at the time of this article first writing, we were talking about an espresso machine that belongs to Starbucks: Starbucks® Sirena™ Espresso Machine. In our opinion, is one of Starbucks greatest contributions to the coffee industry. 

There are many great features about this Starbucks espresso machine, which includes: 

  • the high-quality portafilter
  • the sturdy all-metal housing
  • the huge 57.5 oz removable water tank 
  • and of course the famed Rapid Steam™ boiler that allows one to switch from frothing to brewing in a matter of seconds.

But, this article would like to highlight only 3 pointers that make the Sirena™ Espresso Machine stands out among the rest of the espresso machines.

Although, many would argue that Starbucks is not even a coffee maker producer, so why would I say that they are having great coffee machines? Well, this is the first pointers why I think that this espresso machine is worth the purchase: The Partner. 

The Partner (Saeco) 

Starbucks is great in identifying and forming partnerships (case in point, Nestle). While, Starbucks do not make espresso machine and that their partner in this deal, Italian coffee machines maker, Saeco is one of the best coffee machine manufacturer in this industry. This is also the reason why you have a proprietary element, the Rapid Steam™ boiler inside this starbucks espresso machine.

So, although sold and branded under the Starbucks name, the technology actually came from a world renowned coffee machine maker - Saeco.

Aesthetics 

When you look at this starbucks espresso machine, you might have this thought that it looks like another coffee machine. Yes, there is a slight resemblance to the FrancisFrancis espresso machine (it comes with a very retro look), however, it is more elegant than the FrancisFancis and it can fit into any kitchen.

Designed by the BMW group, the whole idea of this espresso machine is to fit into any kitchen or dining area. The design is to be elegant yet applicable in any occasions.

The Starbucks Experience

The last pointer, which I personally find is the most important of all, is the idea behind the whole machine - the Starbucks experience. You can see the 3 P’s of their Starbucks Experience embedded within the machine DNA. 

  • 1st P | People (Connection with the Customers): The ease of use of it builds a instant connection with their designated customers. 
  • 2nd P | Place: The “expensive” designer look meant that this espresso machine is attractive enough to be a feature piece in a cafe or coffee shop. 
  • 3rd P | Product: This is a brewer that serves great coffee. An important variable in delivery the whole Starbucks experience. 

The whole concept of a Starbucks® Sirena™ Espresso Machine is inspired by the coffee drinking culture of Starbucks.The whole idea is to deliver a good coffee even in the comfort of your own home. 

And in case if you are wondering if this is better than the Thermoplan that baristas in Starbucks use to make their lattes and cappuccinos, we can only say that it is different, but home use, the Sirena™ more than suffice.
