This Package Includes:
An effortless fusion of form and function, the Saeco Talea Giro Plus super-automatic espresso machine delivers modern aesthetics backed by sophisticated brewing technology. Redesigned from the Talea Giro, this model has been upgraded to include a bypass doser and an additional two grind settings to accompany the integrated ceramic disc grinder. With more choices, you’ll be able to better adjust grind fineness or skip the grinder altogether in favor of pre-ground coffee.
The Talea Giro Plus comes standard with Saeco’s Brewing, Rapid Steam, Aroma, and Cleaning systems to ensure consistent and efficient operation. A trademark for Saeco espresso machines, the Giro Plus retains a simple, minimalist interface that allows for easy programming. Creature comforts including a sliding wheel base for increased mobility and accessibility, as well as Touch Lift Technology that allows users to adjust drip-tray height to accommodate a variety of cup sizes make the Talea Giro Plus a solid choice for espresso lovers.
The Saeco Talea Giro Plus has a durable ceramic disc grinder with an auto shutoff safety feature. This model has five grind fineness options, as opposed to the Talea Giro, which only had three grind settings.
With the Saeco OptiDose feature, you’ll be able to take advantage of the adjustable 7-10.5 gram doser to regulate the amount of beans ground per serving and customize your dosage. The Talea Giro Plus has been upgraded to include a bypass doser to accommodate pre-ground coffee; this is also a great option to have for decaf coffee drinkers.
The Saeco Brewing System (SAS) lets you control the strength and consistency of your beverages with just the turn of a dial.
The Saeco Aroma System is a programmable pre-infusion process that infuses coffee grounds with hot water prior to brewing to ensure maximum flavor and aroma extraction. You can activate, deactivate, or prolong the pre-infusion cycle to achieve the desired results.
Saeco’s Rapid Steam lets you go from brewing to steaming in a flash. The steam wand has a Pannarello attachment to perfect milk texture; it also doubles as a hot-water dispenser. For those who indulge in a lot of lattes and cappuccinos, the Talea Giro Plus is compatible with the Saeco Milk Island.
The brew group can be detached for easy maintenance; simply rinse under running water for chemical-free cleaning.
An Intenza Water Filter comes with the removable 57oz reservoir to remove scale, mineral and other impurities—leaving you with great tasting coffee.
The Talea Giro Plus has a removable drip tray that can also be manually raised and lowered to cater to different-sized cups. In addition, this model has a sliding wheel base, allowing users to swivel and rotate the machine with ease. A passive cup warmer, located atop the Talea Giro Plus can accommodate up to six espresso cups.
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!

Once you figure out what all the flashing lights mean - excellent product, great customer service and delicious espresso.
Do not buy this machine it will waste half of your coffee. There is a major flaw with this product, for some unknown reason when it grounds coffee it determines that the batch of ground coffee is unacceptable so it’s immediately dumped (wasted), unfortunately it does this about 50% of the time, a little less with less oily beans. If you don’t mind having half your beans wasted this is a good machine.
What power supply is required? Will it run on a standard 120 outlet?
Also, what fully automatics are available that run on US 110 outlets and have a by-pass for pre-ground coffee?
Thank you for your assistance.
My wife would like an automatic espresso maker that has the steam wand with side access. We have a Saeco Magic and she doesn't like the limited access that the front location provides.
Does this system have a side or front access to the wand? It's hard to tell from the pictures. I realize that the milk pitcher provides an alternative for latte and cappucino, but she also steams other concoctions and doesn't like the Magic's design.
