This new Saeco Syntia machine is fully automatic, making an excellent cappuccino or shot of espresso, with minimal effort.
The key point here is “minimal effort”.
Everything is handled within the machine. Add water to the reservoir. Add whole beans to the grinder hopper at the top. Add cold milk to the milk café and plug it into the side.
Now all you need to is press one button and watch the Syntia make you a perfect cappuccino. Or a shot of espresso.
There are two things that make this a stand-out machine.
First, you can keep making one cappuccino after another, on and on until the water, the milk or the coffee beans run out. No cleaning between brews required. This makes it great if you are entertaining and want to make a number of cappuccinos with the minimum of effort.
Second, there is no external steaming wand. In other words, no mess or splashes, and no tough clean-up job once you are done brewing.
The Saeco Syntia won’t be for everyone, because the price is quite steep.
But if you have the budget, this is a great way to make high-quality cappuccino quickly, cleanly and with minimal hassle.
You can choose from a variety of automatic Saeco espresso machines at Amazon.
