Problems Problems Problems
Got 2 machines from Costco.
One was working for 4 months. 2 cups per day. Start showing NO COFFEE inside hopper icon after 4 months, and it does it AFTER it mills a portion of coffee.
Another machine showed the same message at the FIRST time i tried to brew.
This is unacceptable for a machine that costs as much. Especially two in a row.
I would not recommend it to purchase.

good coffee and very easy to use
Extremely easy to use almost intuitive and makes good coffee but on the bad side, the drip tray fills up quickly, and the water container needs to be filled up every morning. I used a cup to collect the rinse water so I wouldn't have to remove the drip tray but that doesn't help as half the water from each cup goes in the drip tray and only half goes in the cup. I think they have a flaw in the design, and I can't imagine why Saeco can't figure it out.
I saw an youtube video of one handy guy who fixed the problem with a toothpick, well not really fixing the problem, but why would someone spend this much money to have to improvise? Other than that, good coffee machine. I am debating if I should buy it again and just deal with the filling up and emptying out drip tray. Not sure if I would recommend this unit.

I really like this espresso maker
Very easy to use. Auto grinder, adjustable in many ways.
The menu options could be more intuitive, as far as how much water you want in the Cafe Lungo.

does not compare to prior saeco unit we had
This product is difficult to learn how to use. Without good tech people on the phone I would have returned the product. Very noisy and drip unit fills up very fast. We only have a few cups of coffee each day and have empty the drip unit every day. It is only 1/2 inch deep and easily spills when try to get to the sink. We had a Saeco unit before for about 5 years that was great. Would not recommend this unit.
