I'm looking at Saeco Xelsis and also looking at Gaggia Academia. The price difference is significant and I see the features that are available on Xelsis specially the personal profile. But, my question is, is there any significant difference in the quality of espresso or durability of these two products. I don't mind paying extra for the Xelsis, but the feature difference does it worth the price difference?
i.m stuck between the esam 6700 and the Xelsis. all reviews seem to suggest the Xelsis produces better coffee, but looking at the machine i think the build quality is terrible, i also do not like the fact you need to apply grease monthly to the mechanism. I am searching for a long latte over expresso. any comments would be appreciated
I have the Gaggia Academia and LOVE most of everything about it, especially the very HOT coffee. My biggest complaint is the size of the internal drip tray...I'm forced to dump it every three/four cappuccinos. Do either the Xelsis or Exprelia offer a larger internal container? Is the coffee as hot as the Academia? If so, I may look at a swap. Thanks.
I am shopping for a super autho expresso machine. What would you say the biggest difference is between the Gaggia Academia and the Jura-Capresso Impressa Z7 ?
Is this pricing for a new or refurbished?Also is the only difference between the 2 xelsis the fingerprint thing?
What are the differecnes between this saeco and the saeco exprelia?
How hot will the Saeco X heat the milk? any desired temperature or does it have a limit?
Do we have to descale if we use distilled water ?
Do you recommend the Saeco Xelsis as one of the best Super Automatic machines? I was looking at the DeLongi and Jura, but now I see this one.... it looks awesome! Is there plastic on it or is it metal? Can you froth your own milk or use the auto frother? If I order it, does it come with any free items? Looking forward to your reply.....
