Designed by BMW Group DesignWorks to blend in with the contemporary decor of the modern home, the newest Saeco coffee machines, Xsmall Plus and Xsmall Steam are compact, fully automatic coffee machines, packed with all the belts and whistles normally found in the larger and more expensive models. Both machines measure under W30 x D42 x H33 cm. Saeco Xsmall Plus comes with a built-in ceramic burr grinder which doesn't heat up, lasts longer and generates less noise than a conventional metal grinder. Moreover, you will get a consistently even grind, crucial for quality coffee drinks. Saeco also equips this coffee machine with Pannarello Steam Wand, making frothing milk a breeze. The Pannarello frothing device dispenses steam in 3 different directions and makes it easy to froth milk for cappuccinos and lattes. It also dispenses hot water for making hot drinks and soups, and is completely removable for easy cleaning. Pannarello is the only difference between these Saeco coffee machines, as Xsmall Steam uses common steam tube for milk frothing. And Saeco proprietary aroma brewing system lets you precisely adjust the amount of ground coffee used to make your drink. Other features include intuitive controls with LED interface that are conveniently located in front, stainless steel boiler, removable brewing unit and drip tray, 1 liter water tank and 15 bar pump. Automatic rinsing ensures minimal build up of deposits, whenever these Saeco coffee machines are turned on or off. Prices for Xsmall Plus and Xsmall Steam are around £375 and £350 respectively.
