My Milk Island Won't Froth, what’s up with that. The Milk Islands that you find on the Gaggia Platinum and the Saeco Talea machines are extremely impressive. The Milk Islands do an amazing job, you can get the milk as hot as you want it and it creates a beautiful froth. If for some reason...
OverviewBack to Top
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.
FeaturesBack to Top
Ceramic Disc Grinder
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.
Doser and Bypass Doser
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.
Saeco Brewing System
The Saeco Brewing System (SAS) lets you control the strength and consistency of your beverages with just the turn of a dial.
Saeco Aroma System
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.
Easy Clean System
The brew group can be detached for easy maintenance; simply rinse under running water for chemical-free cleaning.
Water Reservoir and Filter
An Intenza Water Filter comes with the removable 57oz reservoir to remove scale, mineral and other impurities—leaving you with great tasting coffee.
Drip Tray, Wheel Base, and Cup Warmer
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.
