Saeco Minuto One-Touch Espresso
Price: $629 – check
The 2016 model. Capacity 1850 W, pressure 15 bar, water tank for 2.5 liters, container capacity for grains 500 g, waste container for 15 portions. Advantages – compactness (21.5 cm wide) and cappuccino preparation with one touch – in fact, two, but the manufacturer had to call the model beautifully. But in general, everything is very good: there is a coffee grinder with ceramic millstones and coffee grinding adjustment, you can also choose the temperature of the drink, the strength, the volume of the cup. The machine is “smart”: it can remember your favorite drinks: press “remember” if you were satisfied with the result.
This model is for big cleaners. You can lower the dispenser as low as possible so that nothing spills without hitting the cup. But the main thing is that all the details that need to be cleaned are easily removed, and there is automatic decalcification. Management – the simplest, all intuitively clear – the display, inscriptions, icons. The kit includes a replaceable dispenser for hot water: you can make tea.
With an understandable control there is no button adjustment of the fortress, it is necessary to program.

The usually high price for this model is now significantly reduced in many stores. In this machine, you can adjust everything from the strength of coffee to the water hardness level. Device management is classic not overloaded with “smart” functions and is carried out with the help of buttons. Bean to Cup provides grinding and cooking the right amount of grains, preventing over-consumption of coffee, and you can also program economical energy consumption. Pre-wetting and extraction guarantees maximum opening of the taste and aroma of coffee.

Capacity 1450 W, pressure 15 bar, adjustment of strength and temperature of coffee, adjustment of the portion of hot water, preliminary moistening of coffee powder, timer and auto shutdown. There is an auto-cap and a 600 ml milk container for making cappuccino. Features: auto-preparation of cappuccino, espresso, ristretto, lungo – just by pressing one button, the inscriptions on the display prompt all actions. You can adjust everything for yourself: the volume, strength and temperature of coffee. The dispenser is adjustable in height. Built-in timer allows you to turn on and off the coffee machine on a schedule: both to save energy, and for convenience. The system of self-cleaning and decalcification does not eliminate the need to sometimes clean all the “insides”, but everything is arranged so that it is not difficult. The kit includes a filter cartridge that prevents the formation of scale and reduces the hardness of water.
It is often necessary to empty the waste container: it is only 9 servings. 3 degrees of grind – also not everyone likes. A filter cartridge is an expendable material, but you can use purified water.
Jura E6 Automatic Coffee Center Platinum
Цена: $1299 – check
The cheapest coffee machine with automatic cappuccino preparation in the model range of the Swiss brand Jura – “trendsetter” for coffee machines. The manufacturer’s recommended price is $ 1299, sellers are not yet reducing the price, because the model is relatively new. The peculiarity of this year’s models is a very short time, which ranges from the choice of a drink to its appearance in a cup: it takes seconds to grind and prepare coffee. From branded “chips”: impulse extraction for full revealing of aroma and taste of coffee, simple push-button control in combination with LCD display, which helps to understand the control and settings without instructions, convenient water tank with the possibility of filling in front, six-stage grinder coffee grinder. And you can choose one of the eight modes of coffee strength and prepare milk foam according to a special brand technology. The water filter CLARIS qualitatively cleans and softens water, and also prevents the formation of calcareous deposits inside the machine. Rinsing and cleaning programs are activated by pressing one button.
The most expensive model in the review, expensive “chemistry” for maintenance and cleaning.

Saeco Intelia Focus EVO2 Deluxe Super Fully Automatic Espresso Machine HD8758/57
Price: $750 – check
A fairly compact model that demonstrates one of the best price-performance-quality combinations in the coffee machine market. I think it is the best inexpensive coffee machine. It makes 6 types of drinks at the touch of a button: espresso, cappuccino, Cafè Créme, milk foam, espresso macchiato, latte. So it can simply pour hot water, there are 3 temperature settings. The coffee machine is equipped with a built in coffee grinder with ceramic millstones (it is especially appreciated by coffeemans) and five degrees of grinding. The machine can make coffee very saturated and soft: for this there are 5 degrees of strength and the function of memorizing the selected level. You can easily remove and rinse the working unit under running water. The kit includes a 500 ml milk container. You can use not only coffee beans, but also ground – for speed. In general, the model is very pleasant to handle: a bright display, the menu is very understandable, it is very easy to choose and configure. Additionally, you can install a Brita water filter to soften and purify water. There are modes of auto-cleaning, decalcification and auto-shutdown – too.
The maximum height of the cup is 11 cm, which means that high glasses for lattes can not be used. The waste container is designed for only 10 servings.
