Super-automatic espresso machine
Brews 18 coffee varieties Integrated milk jug & frother, Steel/Silver, 5 step adjustable grinder
5-steps adjustable grinders
A hot coffee in no time
water consumption for its rinse cycle by up to
80%. This means you can now prepare more
coffee drinks without having to refill the water
18 drinks at your fingertips
When it comes to the fineness of the grind, this
machine never fails to satisfy. Different coffee
blends require different levels of granularity for
the full flavor to unfold. So the grind granularity
of this machine has five adjustable settings from the finest grind for a full-bodied espresso,
to the coarsest for a lighter coffee.
Enjoy perfectly hot, coffee without the wait,
thanks to the powerful boiler with Saeco
Thermospeed technology. The Thermospeed
technology will flash-heat the coffee circuit
when the machine is turned on and prevents
the loss of heat ensuring perfect, hot coffee
from the very first cup.
100% Ceramic grinders
Effortless clean with 1 finger
Your perfect coffee is now at your fingertips.
Download the Saeco Avanti App on your
tablet or smartphone and set up a secure
connection via Bluetooth 4.0 with the
GranBaristo Avanti, the first connected, superautomatic espresso machine. Choose from 18
irresistible drinks and brew it directly from
your smart device, or use the OneTouch
buttons on the machine itself.
Ultimate customization
The robust 100% ceramic grinders guarantee a
moment of pure coffee indulgence for years to
come. The ceramic material creates the ideal
grind, which allows the water to flow through
steadily, extracting the purest essence of the
beans. And unlike other ‘regular’ grinders’, the
ceramic material prevents the coffee from
overheating and tasting burnt.
The Saeco GranBaristo is the only fully
automatic espresso machine to offer a brewing
group that can be removed using just one
finger for an effortless cleaning.
No-fuss coffee experience
The Saeco Avanti App offers an abundance of
indulgent options that will guide you towards a
perfect result, customized exactly to your
taste. You can easily personalize and memorize
strength, length, temperature and taste for
each drink. Explore, experiment and dream up
any number of delectable drinks from the
comfort of your chair, and store an endless
number of drinks in your App.
