I like to compare the Saeco Intelia Focus espresso machine to Jaguars… Like the Jaguar, the Saeco Intelia Focus is beautiful, shiny and smart, as you can see in any of these pictures. It also likes to keep itself clean (like the Jaguar). The Intelia brews using a 15 bar pump and features a pre-brewing function (it pre infuses the coffee which means the coffee is wet prior to brewing to aid in extraction) to enhance the flavor of your favorite beverage whether it be latte, cappuccino, espresso or long espresso. This machine has a hot water option which dispenses out of the wand for tea, hot chocolate or oatmeal! The dispensing spouts on the brew head slide up or down from 2.5 through 4.5 inches. The footprint is rather heroic at approximately 10”W, 13.5”H, and 17.5” D. A grinder adjustment key & pre-ground coffee doser scoop, water hardness test strip, descaling solution, brew group lubricant and cleaning brush are all included in the box. The coffee grounds drawer, water reservoir and drip tray are all located on the front face, they pull out for cleaning or refilling water. The grounds drawer holds about 10 pucks and the water reservoir holds 1.5 liters or just under 51 ounces. The right side of the machine opens up, which is where the brew group and residues drawer are found, they come right out and rinse off. The Intelia will need to be descaled regularly as all espresso machines should be. It's really a snap! Just push the Calc Clean button and the nice control panel will prompt you for all of the steps. The pannarello wand slides off and should be rinsed after each use. The Saeco Intelia Focus is simply a wonderful espresso machine! It pre-brews, automatically cleans & descales, has an adjustable ceramic grinder and it is energy efficient. And, it sure does make drinks fast… Just like the Jaguar XKR-75!
OverviewBack to Top
The Saeco Intelia Focus HD8751 Super-Automatic Espresso Machine has a unique visual appearance with the clear plastic water reservoir and bean hopper emerging from the top of the machine giving you a constant view of the contents. The sleek flat black housing terminates in a polished full width drip tray. Operation is easy with the front mounted control panel and steam wand. You’ll be making perfect espresso in no time and well on your way to steaming and frothing milk for delicious lattes and cappuccinos.
One-Button Espresso or Americano – enjoy either one at the push of a button. Whether you want to enjoy an espresso or an Americano long coffee - your favorites are accessible with a touch of a button, and you can program the volume to remember your favorite settings. There are also controls for setting the strength of your drink.
Pre-infusion – Baristas know that pre-infusing or pre-wetting the coffee grounds for just a few seconds saturates the coffee grounds and allows maximum extraction of coffee flavor and crema during the subsequent pressurized brewing process. The Saeco Pre-brewing Technology built into the Intelia Focus automatically ensures that the coffee grounds are moistened before the actual brewing process.
Bright Control Panel LED display – you will quickly master the easy to understand control menus which allow you to customize your coffee by entering settings for coffee strength and volume. Beyond drink settings the controls also offer a guided descaling and cleaning process, a setup menu to compensate for water hardness, water filter installation, stand-by timing, and display contrast.
Traffic-Light colored User Interface – The controls feedback information to you in a readily understandable color code; that is, like a traffic light, Red requires action, Yellow means the machine is "busy" (like heating up). Green is ready to use. Simple!
Ceramic Burr Coffee Grinder – the use of engineered materials ceramic to manufacturer the grinder burrs gives you very quire operation, extreme longevity, consistent grind size, and low friction temperatures. The cool running grinder preserves the full aroma and flavor of your coffee beans.
Energy Saver – the Intelia Focus Super-Automatic Espresso Machine has a low-power standby mode that uses less than 1 Watt per hour, and it automatically goes into stand-by when there has been 30 minutes without any activity.
Automatic Cleaning and De-Scaling – Saeco takes espresso making seriously and they know that a key factor is using clean water in a clean machine for that perfect brew. That is why they built into the controls automatic cleaning and de-scaling events to keep your Intelia Focus in peak condition.
Removable Brew-Group – the brew-group is quickly removable to allow you to rinse away coffee brewing residue and get ready for the next brewing session. Saeco makes keeping it clean so easy!
