Skip your quick-stop coffee and its long lines, expensive substitutions, and confusing menus with the Philips Saeco Carina 1200 Superautomatic Espresso Machine. A spiritual successor to the Saeco Vienna Plus, the Carina offers a futuristic featureset fit for the modern kitchen. Simple operation, minimal maintenance, and good coffee are all just a quick touch away. Dedicated espresso and coffee buttons save your size and strength settings, leaving foam frothing up to you with a panarello-style steam wand. Maintenance is similarly streamlined: AquaClean smart filtration keeps track of the number of drinks you make between filter changes, a water reservoir and dump box that load from the front, and a generously-sized 10-ounce bean hopper for less refills and more ristrettos. More than a list of features, the Carina comes in at a competitive pricepoint even against capsule machines and steam-powered faux-espresso makers. Save on the coffee you love with the Philips Saeco Carina Espresso Machine.

Great so far! Impressive for the $ I have been wanting a super-all in one for a while but couldn’t justify the expense. I was able to snag this on black Friday and it was well worth the money. I’m primarily a black coffee drinker but I do enjoy strong dark roast fresh brew daily. This machine delivers a great cup of coffee. The machine surprisingly has a lot of settings and you can really customize it to your preferences. The instructions are good with lots of detail to setting it up. You have to give this machine some…

Very good upgrade from pods Bought this as an upgrade from Nespresso pod machines when it went on sale for a significant discount. Adjusting the settings to dial in a good espresso was pretty straightforward except for adjusting the grind setting. That required you to push down and twist a setting knob one notch at a time during the few seconds when the machine is grinding beans for a shot. Odd design choice I guess, but not really difficult. Once everything was dialed in, a bag of Lavazza Super Crema made for much better…

Great machine for the money! Fantastic value for a super automatic. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because the large amount setting for coffee only makes 6.76 oz instead of a standard 8 oz cup. I have to start the process with hot water first then add the large coffee amount to get to the 8 oz cup.
