Saeco Vienna Plus Super-Automatic Espresso Machine

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

If you want to decrease your visits to your local barista, consider buying an automatic espresso machine for your kitchen counter. With a super-automatic model like the Saeco Vienna Plus, you will have your latte ready in less time than in takes to order at the coffee shop counter. To master the directions, it is important to study the instructions carefully and watch the included video. The first few times I used my Saeco Vienna Plus machine, I had a few glitches, but I'm not the world's most technically savvy person. After a few false starts, I had the process down to an art, however. The Vienna Plus makes wonderful lattes, cappuccinos, and even American coffees. It has some great features, including a built-in grinder for grinding your coffee beans right before serving (for the absolute freshest flavor and aroma), a frothing wand for adding foamy warm milk to your drink, programmable functions for brew time and cup size, and a large water tank. Clean-up is relatively easy. There are a few features missing from the Vienna Plus, but I preferred to stay in a more reasonable price range. It would be nice to have a timer, so that the whole process could start before I even got out of bed. And a cup warmer would have been nice, as is available on some other Saeco models. The Vienna Plus is an attractive machine, but it does take up a lot of space on your kitchen counter. Allow plenty of space for moving it around to put water in the tank. These are minor quibbles, however. Overall, the Saeco was definitely worth the price. The coffee it makes is simply great, and it's wonderful to have a machine where all I have to do is push a few buttons, then stand back and let it do all the rest!
