Raising the bar for the entire industry, the Saeco Xelsis Digital ID Super-Automatic Espresso Machine introduces state-of-the-art fingerprint technology to recognize different users and deliver custom-made beverages. Six different user profiles can be stored in the machine and the Digital ID, located at the top of the unit, allows this Saeco model to identify the user and recall his or her preferences.
Created upon the flagship, one-touch Xelsis platform, this machine features top-of-the-line components from beginning to end, with a ceramic burr grinder, the Saeco Brewing System as well as manual and automatic milk options. The Saeco Xelsis Digital ID has a streamlined, user-friendly design with a touch-screen interface and intuitive navigation to allow for simple programming. It also is built with to impress, thanks to a stainless steel body and stunning chrome-plated accents. The Saeco Xelsis Digital ID is ideal for tech-savvy early adopters.
A one-of-a-kind, the Saeco Xelsis Digital ID is the first home espresso machine to feature a fingerprint reader. Up to six different user profiles, complete with customized drink preferences, can be stored in the machine’s database and the Digital ID lets the unit quickly identify and access the appropriate user preferences. No more scrolling through the entire database to locate and select your user profile!
The Saeco Xelsis Digital ID can store up to six user profiles, each with six drink options. It is capable of making espresso, espresso lungo, cappuccino, latte macchiato, caffe latte, and a specialty beverage of your choice. All six drink options are programmable with the Saeco Aroma and Brewing Systems. The machine’s one-touch functionality means that the Xelsis Digital ID will dispense complete beverages into your cup. It will grind, tamp, brew, and steam or froth as necessary and deliver café quality beverages in seconds.
The Saeco Brewing System lets you take control of the strength and consistency of your beverages with the twist of a dial. You can also dictate the length of the pre-infusion cycle using the Saeco Aroma System to fine-tune the flavor and aroma of your beverages. Set the Aroma System to on, off, or long as necessary.
The Xelsis Digital ID has a durable ceramic burr grinder that delivers uniform grinds while minimizing heat transfer. It also has an automatic shut-off feature to ensure safe performance. An airtight, anti-UV bean hopper lets you safely store coffee. To use pre-ground instead of whole bean, simply switch from the grinder to the bypass doser.
The automatic milk system comes with a detachable carafe that can be stored in refrigerator to guarantee freshness. The Xelsis Digital ID will steam and froth milk, according to the beverage selected, and dispense the finished product right into your cup. It also has an automated rinse cycle to keep the system clean and free of obstruction. If you prefer to steam and froth your own milk, the Xelsis Digital ID will allow you to do so with an integrated stainless steal steam wand that doubles as a hot water dispenser.
This Saeco model has a 54oz removable reservoir with an integrated Intenza Water Filtration System to ensure fresh, great tasting beverages.
The water reservoir and bean hopper are both accessible from the top of the machine for easy cleaning and refilling. You can also access the removable brew group, dregs drawer, milk system and drip tray from the front of the machine for daily maintenance, if necessary. The brew group and dregs drawer can both be removed without disturbing the drip tray and milk system. The Xelsis Digital ID’s stainless steel body is made to be able to withstand daily use. The dimensions are as follows: 11”Wx14.5”Dx16.5”H; 37.5lbs.
This machine includes a 1 year warranty directly through Saeco and an additional limited 1 Year Extended Warranty from Whole Latte Love. See Extended Warranties.
If you would like to know a little about the many types of espresso machines we sell, this would be a good video to get you started. This video covers the machines we sell and based on your lifestyle, what you like to drink, and ease of use. It will give you an overview of different espresso machines and help you determine which one best suits to your needs.
I would watch the video and focus on a particular kind of machine—prosumer, semi-automatic, and super-automatic to decide which kind is ideal for you. Then, you can go and look at individual models to get a better idea of exactly what you want. Of course, if you narrow it down to a few espresso machines and are still undecided, give us a call and we would be glad to help!

So glad we invested in a espresso machine for home. The Saeco Xelsis makes great cappuccinos and is easy to use . The only thing I would change is the tray in the front. It is small and needs to be emptied frequently.The programming is easy to use and we were able to set up a separate button for myself and wife. Our friends are amazed when we walk up to machine and our fingerprint knows what to make! This has more features than my first car.
