My family recently purchased the Saeco Xelsis Digital ID Automatic Espresso Machine. It is a one-touch automatic coffee maker that can brew most any type of gourmet coffee beverage. It has the ability to quickly produce any preprogrammed coffee, or can be customized for individual settings. For us, it is the ultimate super automatic espresso machine. Recently, my family calculated just how much money we were spending at Starbucks and the local coffee shop every day. Adding up the numbers, it quickly made sense to consider buying an automatic espresso machine for the house so we could make our coffees exactly when we wanted them at a fraction of the cost.
Doing research on all the different espresso machines available, we settled in on the Saeco Xelsis Digital ID, as our coffee maker of choice. The machine simply had every feature we were looking for, plus a whole bunch more.
One Touch Interface
I like that it has an Animated Color Touch Interface that provides six unique user profiles, and each one of those can have its own six programmable beverages. That is 36 programmable drinks in all. It has an easy-to-read widescreen that provides preprogrammed beverage selections and has an intuitive set-up.
Digital Fingerprint Reader
I also found the Digital ID Fingerprint Reader to be an easy way to make a cup of coffee. When we first got the machine, I thought the fingerprint reader was more of a gimmick than an actual feature, but soon realized what a timesaver it really is. All I need to do is wipe my finger across the reader, and the front panel board lights up with all of my preprogrammed drinks. I can select my cappuccino, latte, espresso, or any other of the three beverages I have preset, with the simple touch of a button, and the machine instantly makes the beverage exactly the way I like it. It is hardly a gimmick at all.
Advance Brewing System
The Saeco Xelsis Digital ID has a double boiler system, containing two stainless steel boilers to ensure that there is always water at the correct temperature for brewing or steaming, and can even just dispense hot water. The coffee machine has the SBS (Saeco Brewing System) which provides the ideal coffee strength and consistency by simply turning the dial.
It is certainly an upgrade from less expensive models, because the Saeco Xelsis Digital ID has a removable Milk-Frothing Carafe with an automatic cleaning cycle. As an external container, I can simply remove it from the refrigerator filled with milk, and attach it to the machine. It allows me to either dispense the milk directly into the cup during the brewing cycle, or swing it out of the way to have it automatically rinse itself out, clearing out any of the milk that might clog the tubing.
“This machine is Awesome. It is so easy to use, and so easy to customize, that everyone here at home is now a coffee (espresso) addict!” – Marcio B., Amazon.com
“This coffee maker is probably one of the best super automatic espresso machines on the market today.” – Eliott M., Amazon.com
With its one touch programmable ability to produce the ultimate cappuccino, latte, espresso, or other hot beverage, along with its alternate steam wand and digital ID fingerprint reader, the Saeco Xelsis Digital ID comes highly recommended. It is also suggested to purchase the coffee maker directly from the company’s official website.
