General info

1.weight

2.99kg

8.16kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.thickness

322.58mm

304.8mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.volume

26990.53cm³

24580.6cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
4.height

332.74mm

317.5mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.Uses ground coffee
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
Ground coffee, especially if freshly roasted and ground, results in much better quality coffee than the kind of results you get with pods or capsules.
6.width

251.46mm

254mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Components

1.Has a steam wand
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
2.Has a pressure gauge
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
One of the most important aspects to pulling a great espresso is the amount of pressure used. Aspects such as how tightly tamped the portafilter is can affect the pressure and therefore the overall quality of the extraction. A pressure gauge helps you to adjust your process to achieve a perfect 9 bar of pressure.
3.Has a commercial steam wand
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
It comes with a commercial style steam wand as opposed to a pannarello steam wand. These are harder to master but can allow you to produce better, richer milk froth.
4.Has a 58mm portafilter
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
A 58mm portafilter is the most common size in the industry, offering a greater range of accessories to purchase such as portafilter baskets and tampers.
5.Uses E61 group head
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
An E61 group head provides excellent temperature stability, a key aspect of producing great espresso. It also has the benefit of a passive pre-infusion feature.
6.Uses E61 brew group
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
The E61 brew group is the industry standard brew group for espresso machines, which delivers consistent, stable heat in order to help pull the perfect espresso.
7.Has an integrated grinder
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
8.Has a rotary vane pump
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
A rotary vane pump is most often found on commercial and high-end consumer machines, and offers much quieter operation compared to the more common, vibratory pump.
9.Has a display
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
The device has an electronic display to present information to the user.

Water source

1.Has integrated filter
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
2.Has PID controller
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
A PID controller controls the temperature of the boiler electronically. It offers a far greater degree of accuracy and consistency than a regular, mechanical thermostat used to control temperature. This is very important as a temperature of around 92°C to 96°C is key to pulling the perfect espresso.
3.Water tank is transparent
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
With a transparent water tank you can easily see when it needs to be filled up. This is important as attempting to make an espresso with an empty tank can damage the machine.
4.Has direct water connection
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
The coffee machine can connect directly to the water supply. This ensures you never have to refill the machine with water.
5.Has a removable water tank
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
6.Has a hot water outlet
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.

Maintenance

1.Indicates when drip tray is full
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
With a drip tray indicator the machine informs you of when you need to empty the tray.
2.Has cleaning alert
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
The machine alerts you when it requires cleaning.
3.Has dry puck feature
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
At the end of the extraction process, all moisture is removed from the puck. This allows you to easily tap out the coffee from the portafilter afterwards, reducing mess and the need to clean it as often.
4.Prevents overheating
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
It has an internal fuse/thermal sensors which prevents the machine from overheating.
5.Has sleep mode
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
After a certain period of being idle, the device will switch to a sleep mode to conserve power.

Features

1.Has a 3-way valve
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
A 3-way solenoid valve relieves the portafilter of pressure and moisture after the extraction. This produces a dry puck which can easily be removed afterwards. It also means that you don’t have to wait for the pressure to equalise, so that you can make back-to-back coffees.
2.Has a pre-infusion function
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
With a pre-infusion function you get a low pressure of water before it ramps up to around 9 bar of pressure. This gently expands the grinds to get a smooth extraction and to help prevent channeling in the cake.
These buttons can be programmed for different types of coffee such as an espresso, doppio or ristretto. This means once you have mastered a particular style of coffee, you can get it the same every time.
4.Has a shot timer
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
The time taken to pull an espresso shot is one of four key elements, and should be around 19-22 seconds. Once you have the grind, dose and tamp correct, you can use the shot clock to time the pull perfectly.
5.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Keurig K-Elite
Saeco Via Venezia
With a double boiler or heat exchanger system, you can brew and steam milk at the same time. This has an advantage over single boiler machines where you have to wait between brewing and steaming for the temperature to adjust.
