Saeco's slimmest-ever espresso maker truly lives up to the name "Gran Baristo." Packed with big-time features, this fully-automatic machine takes charge of customized brewing with one-touch presets for an impressive 16 specialty coffee drinks – from perfect espressos, cappuccinos and lattes to genuine American-style coffee. An extra bean hopper makes it a cinch to switch to decaf or change coffee blend.

  • Thermospeed technology optimizes heating time for the fastest, most efficient brewing.
  • Patented sliding milk carafe has double chambers for perfect steaming and frothing.
