The Saeco Aroma in stainless steel is a machine built for simplicity and durability. A pressurized style portafilter makes the Aroma a great starter machine, reducing the amount of control the user needs to have over the grind setting and tamp pressure. In addition, its 5oz boiler ensures lasting steam power that is dispensed through Saeco’s signature Pannarello wand to take the guesswork out of frothing and steaming. Neatly wrapped in a classic stainless steel housing, the Saeco Aroma is both stylish and resilient, providing café quality espresso for years to come.
Features & Benefits: Coffee
There are two types of portafilters: pressurized style and commercial style. The Aroma uses the pressurized style, which is easier to use than the commercial as it is more forgiving. The portafilter is made up of three parts, the handle, the filter holder, and the filter basket. Under the filter basket is a small spring-loaded valve that will not open until the pressure in the portafilter has built up. A few seconds after the pump is turned on, the pressure in the portafilter is great enough to push open the valve and release the coffee.
The Aroma SS contains a food safe stainless steel boiler and heating element. The durable steel resists corrosion and ensures a longer life span of the machine. It is recommended that you do a simple process called decalcifying every two to three months to lengthen the life span of this and other internal components.
High Quality Controls with Temperature Ready Light
The Saeco Aroma has three easy to use control buttons. The machine is turned on by pressing the on/off button located on the top left of the machine. You’ll recognize it because it looks like an “o” inside a circle. The brew button is located above the on/off switch and will start dispensing the coffee when pushed. When the desired amount of espresso is reached, simply push the button a second time to stop the flow of coffee. The steam knob is located on the top right of the machine. To steam, turn the knob to the right and steam will be released. To stop steaming, return the knob to its original position.
Preheating your cups is a very important. The Aroma SS has a stainless steel cup warmer that will hold up to five espresso cups. It is passively heated, which means it is heated from the residual heat of the boiler.
Features & Benefits: Frothing & Hot Water
Hot Water Dispenser
If you want hot water for any reason, be it for hot chocolate, tea or Americanos, it is very easy to do. Just turn on the pump (brew) switch and open the steam knob. Hot water will start to stream out.
The easiest way to froth (for cappuccino) and steam (for latte) your milk is with this patented frother design.
Features & Benefits: Care, Maintenance & Other
The large transparent removable 2.2-quart reservoir can be refilled from the top any time during the operation for an endless supply of coffee or steam. The side casing is transparent so you can see the water level in the tank at all times.

Thermostat and Safety Switches
The Aroma has three temperature controls. There are two thermostats and one high limit. There is one thermostat for maintaining brewing temperature and one for maintaining steaming temperature. The high limit will turn off the power to the boiler in the event of a malfunction. This prevents the boiler from overheating.
The Aroma SS is constructed of durable stainless steel. The drip tray is stainless while the drip pan is plastic. Not only is the Aroma SS solid and easy to clean, its brushed stainless construction fits in perfectly with today's high-end kitchen appliances.
