General info

1.warranty period

1

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
2.thickness

440mm

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.

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.

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

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

38297.6cm³

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

Components

1.Has burr grinder
Philips Saeco Intelia HD8751/47
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.
2.Has an integrated grinder
Philips Saeco Intelia HD8751/47
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
3.Cup clearance is adjustable
Philips Saeco Intelia HD8751/47
An adjustable cup clearance is useful when you wish to use larger cups and mugs, such as when making a latte macchiato.
4.Has a steam wand
Philips Saeco Intelia HD8751/47
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
5.dump box capacity

10

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.
6.bean hopper capacity

300g

A bigger bean hopper means that you have to refill it less often.

Water source

1.Has a removable water tank

The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
2.water tank capacity

1.5l

With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.
3.Has a hot water outlet
Philips Saeco Intelia HD8751/47
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
Philips Saeco Intelia HD8751/47
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
5.Water tank is transparent
Philips Saeco Intelia HD8751/47
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

1.Automatic coffee circuit rinse

The machine automatically cleans the coffee circuit, meaning that the machine requires a minimal amount of cleaning.
2.Has sleep mode

After a certain period of being idle, the device will switch to a sleep mode to conserve power.

Features

1.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Philips Saeco Intelia HD8751/47
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.
2.number of grind settings

5

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.
3.Has a pre-infusion function
Philips Saeco Intelia HD8751/47
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.

Miscellaneous

1.Uses ground coffee
Philips Saeco Intelia HD8751/47
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.
