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.
Built In 80 oz. Water Tank
The 80 oz. 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 Aroma 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 stainless steel, 950-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.
Additional Product Information & Maintenance:
In order to keep the inside of your machine healthy; it must be periodically cleaned. Scale buildup from naturally occurring minerals in your water can build up on sensitive components like the inside of the boiler, which left unchecked can cause considerable damage to the machine. By descaling your machine every two-three months, your machine will be trouble-free for years. Saeco espresso machine cleaner can be purchased from us or by calling the support number in your user guide. Descaling and general cleaning is important even if you have a sophisticated water filter system, and especially if you use well water.
