Philips Saeco Exprelia review: 33 facts and highlights

1. Has burr grinder

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.

23. number of grind settings

A higher number of grind settings gives you more flexibility when choosing the fineness of your ground coffee. The particle size is important as a grind which is too coarse can produce weak tasting espresso, whereas a grind which is too fine can lead to a bitter taste.

24. Has a pre-infusion function

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.
