Saeco Odea Go II
Saeco Odea Go II

On the Specs page, you've listed model this as having variable dosing from 7 to 10.5 grams per shot, but marked 'NO' for adjustable dosage (which makes sense: the Go II lacks OptiDose). Is the dosage in fact variable on the Go II, and if so, how does it vary? Is this part of what the Saeco Adapting System (SAS) controls in addition to grinder speed?

Second, what exactly is "Aroma / Flow Control", and how/where on the Odea Go II is this controlled?

Thanks!

mjackson ♦ It actually can dose up to 9 grams of coffee per serving, it does have a variable output of up to 8 ounces for brewing. The SAS is all about the grinder adjusting to different kind of beans to get the best espresso possible with that kind of bean. The better Saeco machines also have the SBS - adjustable créma and body structure The Saeco brewing system is a unique feature that allows you to adjust the flow speed of the coffee delivery thereby influencing the richness and body structure of the créma. The Aroma flow has to do with preinfusion and it is automatic.

Is the expresso very hot when it comes out of this machine? My Delonghi ESAM3300 Magnifica Super-Automatic Espresso espresso was not hot enough.

mjackson ♦ Scott,
Great question. It will be about the same as the Delonghi. If you go out to a good cafe and get an espresso it will be hot. If you order coffee it may be burn your tongue hot. You can always drink an espresso right away. That being said if you get a machine that has temperature settings you will be able to make it hotter. Say a machine like the Gaggia Titanium or the Gaggia Vision. They will make your coffee hotter so you may want to consider those machines.

mjackson ♦ Scott,
To be honest it probably will be about the same. Espresso if you order one at a very good shop can be drank right away. It is not as hot as a burn your tongue drip coffee. If you want to have more control over the temperature of your coffee then get something like the Gaggia Platinum swing up or Vision as they do have adjustable temperatures in the programming.

DanielCulver I would like to add, that if you like your coffee hot but don't want to increase the brew temp to the point of burning it, try preheating your mug or cup, and even your shot glass.

I have a Saeco Odea Go coffee machine. I use a water filter and descale the machine regularly. The descale warning light was flashing so I descaled the machine (with seaco descaler) but the light continues to flash. I have tried descaling again, switched the machine on and off and run hot water and steam but the light continues to flash. The machine still works.

mjackson ♦ Jill,
I am not exactly sure what is going on. You may have not completed descaling completely. You should call Saeco as they provide all the technical support for that machine. You an reach them at 1-800-933-7876 .

I am having a problem with this machine. When I turn off the steamer and try making another cup of coffee, the water won't stop pouring out of the steamer spicket. Usually this lasts only about 10 seconds, and then the coffee will start grinding/pouring again. But not anymore. Am I doing something wrong?

mjackson ♦ Mani,

It could be a few things. I would try doing my coffee first and then let it heat up to steam temperature. This may help. You may also want to try and run a descaling cycle with cleaner especially through the steam wand. You can do this by using the hot water feature. If this does not help I would try calling the Saeco technical support line. You can reach them at 1-800-933-7876. I hope this helps and thanks for the question.

Hi. The Saeco Odea Giro Plus will accomodate a 7.5 inch tall Starbucks insulated to go cup. The Odea Go will not. Do you know if the Go II is a bit taller like the Giro?

What are the primary differences, if any, between the Saeco Vienna Plus and the Saeco Odea Go II ??

Mike Russo ♦ Larry...Thank you for your interest in the Saeco Odea Go II. Here are some differences between the two machines. The cup height adjustment for the Odea is done by moving the drip tray up and down. To make a cup height adjustment for the Vienna you need to move the dispensing head up and down.
The Odea grinder has ceramic discs with five adjustable settings and the hopper holds 6 ounces of beans. The Vienna grinder has conical burrs with 18 adjustable settings and the hopper holds 12 ounces of beans.
The Odea does not have a optidose, while the Vienna does. Optidose allows to adjust how much coffee is used (ground).
The Odea water reservoir holds 50 ounces of water and the Vienna water reservoir holds 57 ounces of water.
The Odea discard bin holds 14 extracted espresso pucks. Compared to the Vienna discard bin holds 15 extracted espresso pucks.
The dimensions for the Odea and Vienna are as follows:
(WxDxH) Odea 11.5x15x14.5
(WxDxH) Vienna 15x14x15.5
I hope this information helpful, but if you have any further questions please feel free to contact us at1-888-411-5282 option 1. Happy brewing.

Does this machine use a "perfect crema" device like other Saecos? Why is that necessary? Do shots with "artifical crema" taste the same as shots with real crema?

How long does it take for this machine to heat up from completely cold?

I like my espresso strong so that it stands up to milk. If anyone's using this machine for cappuccinos or lattes, please let me know if you're satisfied with the strength.

TechMilanoItalia David, this is considered a 'super-automatic' machine, so normal rules of espresso brewing tend not to apply. The machine will produce a good shot, and you can adjust the water quantity down low so you can get a shorter shot which will be stronger and more concentrated. The initial heat-up time is quoted at about 3-4 minutes. If you are more concerned with the quality of the espresso and real crema, you may want to consider a semi-automatic espresso machine (found here: http://www.wholelattelove.com/espresso_machine.cfm?cid=1&scid=1 ) paired with a good grinder (found here: http://www.wholelattelove.com/grinder.cfm?scid=34 ). Give our knowledgeable Sales Team a call at: 888.411.5282 option '1' for the best solution for you.
