Getting to know my Saeco GranBaristo

Edited:  Occasionally I will update a post on a product review, after some time and use. These updates are to let you know what I think a year or even years later.  While I have LOVED my Saeco GranBaristo, my machine stopped working after just over 2 years.  This is a pricey machine and should last longer than 2 years!  Sadly, I CANNOT recommend it.

Now that I’ve had our Saeco GranBaristo for a while, I have gotten it to know it much better, so I thought I’d share some last thoughts I have about it in this last blog post, as well as some tips!

Saeco GranBaristo Review

  • A great aesthetic feature of the Saeco GranBaristo is how compact it is, and that it can easily fit on your kitchen counter.  It doesn’t take up much more room than a regular coffee maker.
  • And we also like that it is very easy to use.  The touch pad menu is easy to navigate.
  • We especially love that this machine grinds fresh coffee beans!  Best. Cup. Of. Coffee. Ever.
  • The Saeco GranBaristo comes with 2 interchangeable coffee bean compartments, so that means you can have 2 different kinds of beans on the go.  For example, I drink decaf and my husband drinks regular.  So we each have a compartment for our own beans that we just switch out when we want to make our own coffee.  And to make sure the bean grounds don’t cross contaminate, there is a special grinder cleaning option!  They’ve thought of everything!  Love it.

  • Another great feature is that the GranBaristo can also make 2 coffees at the same time.

  • One of my favourite things about this espresso machine is that it makes the most delicious and creamy foam.  When I order a drink at a coffee shop I always ask for extra foam, so I like that this machine makes great foam.
  • This machine can make almost any kind of coffee you can imagine:  Regular Coffee, Americanos, Cappuccinos, Espressos, Lattes, Flat Whites, Ristrettos, Macchiattos.
  • And not just coffee, you can also enjoy steamed milk or plain hot water for tea.
  • I also like that you can make coffee in different cup sizes.  The spout height easily adjusts to fit different sized cups.

 

Tips!

  • We have found that the best foam comes from using whole milk.
  • The machine will self clean and descale, so it’s very easy to keep clean.  Just make sure to keep up with the weekly and monthly maintenance for great tasting coffee!
  • Set up individual profiles so you can have the perfect cup of coffee for you!
  • Keep the milk carafe full and in the fridge all ready to go at all times.  You never know when a latte craving is going to hit!  😉
