Detailed Commentary

This is the first espresso machine I've owned, so my experence is in making expresso is limited.   Nor do I consider myself to be an expert in the taste.  But I do like coffee.  I generally, purchase my coffee at regular chain coffee houses, like Starbucks, Seattle Best, etc.  

I was considering only a fully automatic coffee machine for the simplicity.  I looked at the Jura S-9 and the Saeco Sirus.  I would have purchased the S-9 because it made  pretty good espresso, but the espresso and coffee latte was not hot and $2400.00 cost was a little more than I wanted to pay at the time.  So I looked at the Saeco Sirus made regular coffee, espress and coffee latte.  Also, the Saeco has three temperture setting so I get hot coffee.  

I also, prefer manually frothing milk (saeco) as to the auto frothing on the Jura S-9.  That was something I did not consider in my initial thought process.  

The bottom line is that I really like the Saceo Sirus, it makes much better coffee (espresso, latte) than any of the coffee houses that I've been too.

Buying Experience

I purchased the machine on line.
