330mm

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

245mm

215mm

Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
2.Has burr grinder
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
A burr grinder works in such a way that you can get a consistent, uniform size of grind each time, which is one of the key aspects of getting great tasting espresso. On the other hand an inferior blade grinder often leaves you with an inconsistent grind.
3.Has an integrated grinder
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
4.Cup clearance is adjustable
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
An adjustable cup clearance is useful when you wish to use larger cups and mugs, such as when making a latte macchiato.
5.Has a steam wand
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
6.dump box capacity

14

15

The machine automatically deposits the used coffee grounds or pods into the dump box after extraction. The dump box capacity shows how many drinks you can create before it is full.

Water source

1.water tank capacity

1.8l

1.8l

With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.
2.Has a removable water tank
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
3.Has a hot water outlet
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
4.Has integrated filter
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
5.Has PID controller
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
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.
6.Water tank is transparent
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
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.

Maintenance

Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
The machine automatically cleans the coffee circuit, meaning that the machine requires a minimal amount of cleaning.
2.Indicates when drip tray is full

3.Has sleep mode

Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
With one press of a button you can create a cappuccino.

Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
With an integrated milk frother, the machine can automatically produce frothed milk for use in cappuccinos and other drinks.
3.Has a pre-infusion function
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
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.
4.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
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.

Miscellaneous

1.Uses ground coffee
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Philips Saeco Minuto
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.
