Philips Saeco Poemia Review

If you’ve been in the market for an easy-to-use espresso machine but have no idea where to begin, I suggest taking a closer look at the Philips Saeco Poemia. This great little espresso maker comes with all the features beginners need to create their own cafe flavored espressos at home without the extra cost associated with other high end models.

If you have researched espresso machines, you know that most of them are not cheap. For less than $200, this machine offers a number of great features such as a pressurized portafilter, cup warmer, and frothing wand that are normally found on machines that cost over $300. For the number features and accessories included with the Saeco Poemia, you’re getting a great value for the price in this espresso machine.


The Crema Filter
Did you know that the crema is the most important part of any espresso? The crema is the thick foam layer found at the top of the espresso. It is important because it denotes the quality of the coffee. With a thick layer of crema on top, you know you are getting an amazing quality of coffee. As the quality and temperature of the espresso disappears, the crema does as well. The Saeco Poemia takes all this into consideration by offering one of the most unique crema filters found on the market today. The pressured crema filter found inside this machine not only ensures the quality of the espresso but also guarantees the crema is long lasting.

Pressurized Portafilter
The Saeco Poemia also comes with an aluminum pressurized portafilter. For those unfamiliar with espresso machines, most machines require the user to tamp their own grounds which requires at most 30lbs of tamp in order to achieve quality flavor. With the Poemia’s built in pressurized portafilter, one doesn’t need to worry about tamping. The heavy-duty pressurized chamber found on the machine does all the work for you allowing even the finest of coffee grounds to be extracted.

Powerful Pump
15-bar-pumpThe Saeco Poemia comes with a vibratory pump that has been rated at 15 bars of pressure. Most 15 bar pumps are only found in high end models so to find an espresso machine in this price range with this feature is nearly unheard of. The amazing pump on this machine allows for full extraction, making sure every coffee ground is saturated and that full flavor is achieved.

Frothing Wand
For those who prefer the taste of lattes over an espresso, this machine has the capability to make the perfect cafe latte. With the frothing wand found on the Saeco Poemia, steaming milk is a breeze. All one has to do is simply place the tip of the frothing wand into a milk pitcher to begin steaming milk. With a built in swivel for easy access, making the perfect latte is easier than ever.



Cup Warmer
The Saeco Poemia comes equipped with a cup warmer as well! While some of your higher end models don’t even offer this feature, the cup warmer comes standard on this model. The one thing everyone hates is a cold cup of coffee. With this cup warmer, one can guarantee their coffee is being poured into a nice hot cup, and it also gives you the ability to re-heat your cup of coffee as well.

Easy Serving Espresso
For those with little time in the morning, the Saeco Poemia is the perfect choice! This espresso machine not only lets you use ground coffee to make the perfect espresso, but you can also use what is known as the Easy Serving Espresso (ESE) pads. With these simple pads, one is able to simply put it into the machine and wait for the perfect express too be extracted. Unlike using coffee grounds, the ESE pads also require very little clean up. With a wide variety of flavors to choose from, no matter what you are looking for you are sure to find it with this machine.

With its modern stainless steel design, the Saeco Poemia will look nice on any countertop. The design of this machine also guarantees it will last longer as well! With a stainless steal finish, your machine should last for years to come. The stainless steel also helps make clean up a breeze.
