Features and Benefits:
An Italian Barista At your fingertip: Fancy a coffee? Push a button! By doing so, the machine will automatically grind the right amount of coffee, tamp it, brew it and dispense the used grounds into a dump box.
Pump System: The Vienna De Luxe features a powerful pump rated at 15 bars (217.6 psi) of pressure. The Italian coffee making tradition requires steady pressure to produce first class espresso and coffee. Only in such a way can the water plow through the finest coffee grounds, for the perfect extraction.
Conical Burr Grinder: The Vienna De Luxe has a built-in conical burr grinder with eighteen different levels of grinding (0-fine, 18-coarse). Each burr is made of high quality tempered steel, which is meant to last the lifetime of the machine with little maintenance. The coffee bean hopper holds ˝lb bag of whole beans.
Saeco Opti-Dose® Adjustable Dosing feature: The Opti-Dose® system will allow you to change the amount of ground coffee used for each beverage from 6 to 9 grams, By adjusting the amount of ground coffee you will be able to change the flavor and taste of your coffee, from weak to strong, without changing the amount of water used to brew the coffee.
Adjustable beverage Volume: The Vienna De Luxe has a brewing button and a simple dial display to determine the amount of coffee to brew. Turn the knob clockwise and you will pass from a short Italian espresso (2oz) up to a long 8oz Americano. If you want a double espresso, just push the button twice, and the machine will automatically brew two shots of coffee.
Adjustable Cup Dispensing Head: The dispensing head can be easily raised or lowered to adapt to your size cup. Small 4 oz espresso cups up to large 8oz coffee mugs can fit easily under the adjustable dispensing head.
Aroma System® Pre Infusion Makes Great Espresso: Thanks to this feature, it is possible to taste the full aroma of the coffee beans in every cup. A special programmed pre-brewing cycle injects a little hot water into the freshly ground coffee. This step allows the coffee to soak, and swell up. By moistening the grounds it maximizes flavor extraction to increase the crema of your espresso. The result: A superior cup of espresso or coffee with thick rich crema.
Saeco Easy Clean System®: The heart of the Vienna De Luxe: the patented removable brewing unit. This is the device that allows the machine to work automatically. Here is where the coffee extraction takes place. The patented brewing unit can be extracted at the push of a button, for convenient rinsing and chemical free cleaning. The brewing unit is exclusive proprietary Saeco technology and one of the things that has made Saeco world leader in fully automatic coffee machines.
Rapid Steam®: The Rapid Steam® feature allows you to steam or froth milk with no waiting time after brewing your espresso.

Steam and Hot water wand with Exclusive Pannarello Frothing device: The Vienna De Luxe has a steam wand located on the front of the machine, which will also produce hot water for tea or any other hot water based drinks. The Pannarello allows easy frothing and perfect foam with no hassle.
Removable Water Reservoir: The Vienna De Luxe makes it easy to refill the water reservoir by allowing you to add water while still on the machine, or by removing the reservoir with the easy grip handle. The reservoir is made of clear ABS plastic, which allows you to see how much water is remaining in the tank.
Swivel Base: A swivel base has been placed on the base of the machine to simplify even further general maintenance and cleaning. The machine will turn from side to side with a light push so that there is no need to lift or move the machine itself.
