Can this be used in superautomatic espresso machines?

I have a Saeco XSmall and am having trouble finding something dark enough to suit my tastes that will hold up well in a latte. I bought 1 kilo of Lavazza Super Crema and couldn't be more disappointed with these beans.

Are these beans too oily to be used in a superautomatic espresso machine like mine? If so, can you make a recommendation for a darker roast bean that can be used in the superautomatic machines?

Illy's beans are fairly super-automatic friendly, and these are no exception.  You should have no problem using these with your machine.  As far as alternatives are concerned, I would suggest Filicori Gran Crema Forte--It's fairly darkly roasted and liked by those with similar tastes.
