Saeco Aroma Espresso Machine - Stainless

A new model from Saeco, the handsome Saeco Aroma espresso/cappuccino machine fits in any décor and is the perfect size to place on a kitchen or bar counter top. A compact size, yet it contains an 80oz. water reservoir and a sizable boiler. The Aroma was designed as a medium price espresso machine that excels at making espresso drinks including lattes, mochas, cappuccino and all of your favorite coffee house drinks.

Saeco’s key to consistent quality coffee production is their patented, stainless steel boiler and pressurized portafilter system. Whether you are an expert or novice you will love the reliability of this system to pull flavor rich espresso shots with thick crema, time after time. This system also lets you use single serving espresso pods! Your lattes, cappuccinos and mocha’s will always have more than enough steam due to the Aroma’s efficient heating element. For classic performance and reliability, we recommend the Saeco Aroma!

The Saeco Aroma features simple to use controls, a powerful pump and pressurized portafilter for great crema, an espresso pod adapter, an efficient heating element for steaming milk and making hot water, special milk frothing tip, a removable water tank, a cup tray, cup warming surface and a removable drip tray. All this in beautiful, compact, stainless steel housing.

Detailed Product Description:

Simple Brewing Features - The Aroma begins great coffee with the simple flip of a switch. The semi-automatic switch starts the flow of espresso and continues until you have the desired amount, and then you switch it off. Durable rocker switches comprise the control panel and all the controls are logically arranged and simple to use.

Frothing Tip for Perfect Foam - Like magic, your Aroma stainless steel steam wand will make beautiful foam just by slipping on the Pannarello frothing tip. In an instant, the steam wand converts the milk in your 12 or 20 oz. frothing pitcher to lovely foam for lattes and cappuccinos. Mounted on a swivel joint, the wand conveniently swings aside and clean up is a snap.

Perfect Espresso No Matter What The Consistency Of The Grind - It stands to reason that the correct texture of the coffee grounds and the right pressure used to pack them (know as tamping) makes a huge difference in the quality of espresso produced, a problem for novices on other machines. The Aroma’s heavy-duty pressurized portafilter does away with that concern by pressurizing the brewing chamber to improve extraction from the ground beans, promoting the perfect brewing conditions. The heavy-duty portafilter on the Aroma is made of cast brass that has been chrome-plated.

Adapter for Espresso Pods - Do when you love espresso drinks but don’t love the mess? Espresso pods are the answer. It’s a pre-ground, pre-measured single shot serving in a permeable biodegradable paper pouch! Phew, that’s quite a mouthful but so will be your first taste of rich espresso from a pod. Simply insert the pod adapter and special filter basket into the portafilter. There’s no fuss, and no muss to clean up, except for throwing away the pod. You may find espresso pods at many large coffee shop chains and online stores that sell coffee equipment. Click here for our ESE Coffee Pods

Built In 80 oz. Water Tank - The 80 oz. Aroma water reservoir is prefect for home and entertaining. You can brew a number of espressos and then refill the reservoir right where it’s at, even if it is still brewing. Simple to remove, the reservoir can also be carried to a faucet.

Powerful Pump System - The Aroma boasts a powerful vibratory pump rated at 15 BAR of pressure, the same pump found on top of the line Saeco espresso machines to pull maximum flavor from the coffee beans.

Removable Cup Tray, Drip Pan & Cup Warming Shelf - This removable cup tray and plastic drip pan make clean up simple. The polished steel construction makes it simply stylish. A cold cup can pull the heat and heart right out of an espresso. If you’ve ever had a tepid espresso you’ll know how important a warmed cup can be. The Classico provides a stainless steel passive heat cup warmer that cleverly eliminates the problem.

Safe, Rapid Recovery Boiler - No hot water, no espresso. The Aroma keeps hot water coming with a large, 1250-watt quick recovery boiler of stainless steel. This boiler also has burnout protection; a thermal fuse to shut down the heating element should the machine run dry during operation.

No Special Plumbing or Electrical Requirements - Just plug it in, fill it up and it is ready to go. All accessories needed for immediate operation of the Aroma are provided with purchase. They include: single and double stainless steel filter baskets, a measuring spoon, and detailed instructions on the care and operation of you new Aroma.
