Love Your Coffee, Your Way

Introducing the Philips Saeco range of Espresso machines, designed to help you achieve your ideal coffee at just the touch of a button. There's no need to learn the skills of a barista, we'll bring the barista to you in the form of these stylish bean-to-cup machines. Whether you're looking for an espresso shot to kick start your day, or a latte to help you relax and unwind, Philips Saeco delivers in-cup excellence every time.

Advanced Features for the Perfect Cup

Philips Saeco Coffee Machine
SBS: intelligent adjustable crema and body structure

Philips Saeco allows you to adjust your espresso's intensity, altering the crema and body structure as it is dispensed. Simply by turning the knob you can prepare the crema exactly according to your taste. A little knob that makes a big difference.

Full bean-to-cup customisation

All aspects of your drink exactly how you like them: Choose your favourite coffee blend and adjust coffee length, intensity, temperature, crema and body structure until they all meet your personal taste perfectly.

Double boiler for instant steam

A double boiler means your Philips Saeco is always ready to produce both coffee and steam, so no need to wait for your favourite drink.

Integrated automatic milk function

With the integrated milk carafe, all you have to do is fill it with milk and select your favourite coffee drink. Your drink will be served in seconds - milk, espresso & froth - directly into your cup. The advanced milk management system includes two automatic rinsing cycles, and for thorough cleaning the whole carafe can be easily dismantled.

Built for Convenience

Automatic cleaning and de-scaling

Easy to use includes easy maintenance: Thanks to the automatic cleaning and de-scaling cycles, you are guaranteed the best quality drink every day as well as increasing the life of your machine.

Removable brewing group

The brewing group is at the heart of every fully automatic coffee machine and as such should always be kept clean. A task that doesn't get any more convenient than with a Philips Saeco: remove, rinse and re-insert - done.

One touch beverage selection

Whether you want a cappuccino or an espresso, with the immediate beverage selection you can enjoy your personally customised drink at the touch of a button.

Ergonomic in day by day operations

Philips-Saeco is synonymous with convenience: refilling beans or water, emptying the coffee dump box or the drip tray, all compartments are easily accessible.

Passionate About Coffee? How to Enjoy Your Espresso

Philips Saeco Coffee Machine
Fascination for the Nose

Before you  take a first sip, inhale. With a good espresso, you should notice a rich ensemble of aromas interacting in harmony, plus a toasty note that comes from roasting. After tasting, exhale. Look for a lasting aroma - of butter, warm bread, puff pastry, and chocolate.

Philips Saeco Coffee Machine
Inspiration for the Eyes

With espresso, the crema says a lot about the quality. Look for a smooth, sometimes streaky, hazel brown crema about 3-4mm thick. The crema should last a while- to seal in heat and the aroma.

Philips Saeco Coffee Machine
Delight the Palate

The temperature of espresso itself is crucial. When it first touches your lips, it should be around 65C. You should notice a pleasant, slightly velvety sensation below your palate, too.

Philips Saeco Coffee Machine
A Feast for the Tongue

People can perceive five different tastes: sweet, sour, bitter, salty and savoury. After your first sip of espresso coffee, you should taste a range of nuances in all five directions.

GOOD FOR ESPRESSO
====================
Because it's a bean to cup machine you choose how fine or coarsely the beans are, even before your first cup is brewed. The fineness of grind is important. Coffee beans which are too fine will expose too much surface area to the heated water and produce a bitter taste. But a very coarse grind can produce very weak coffee.

Because it grinds the coffee then brews there should be no deterioration of the beans. (Ground coffee starts to deteriorate because it's exposed to oxygen.)

Sorry for the waffle...

I GOT PERFECT RESULTS
======================
Designed, I think, for simpletons. It's impossible to go wrong. I'm a simple man and I got perfect results from my first cup. I didn't need to read thousands of pages of a manual or go on barista course.

Fill. Press. Wait. Voilà. Coffee.

JUST ESPRESSO ?
===============
Nopes. It makes lattes and a rather nice cappuccino. (superb steam)

LOOKS NICE TOO
===============
The machine look beautiful in our kitchen and looks well made and not too noisy.

RECOMMENDED
==============
Yes. I love it. Feel free to post a comment for any query

First usage has been good. I am used to a Bean to Cup system for many years and this is good. The coffee and milk are hotter than my last machine and it is easy to use. It may be a little slower than my old Delonghi but so far the milk foam for cappuchino is very good.

After the retirement of my old Saeco espresso machine that kept me supplied with fresh coffee almost every day for nearly 35 years I am the proud owner of a Phillips Saeco Exprelia. WHAT A GREAT Machine this is. Okay the water chamber is smaller but this for is me no problem. It brews from Bean to cup the most wonderful coffee. One thing I really like is the automatic rinse that cleans out the most important parts before and after use. Start up time is a matter of just a few seconds. Like I said before, it makes the perfect coffee or Lungo and a Super Cappuccino.
