The all new Saeco Syntia SS Super Automatic Espresso Machine offers coffee and cappuccino lovers a compact and simple coffee center that is both quiet and capable. This Syntia stands at less than 13 inches high and features a premium stainless steel body that is not only robust, but also has a modern and stylish look. The Saeco Syntia's intuitive 3 color display, paired with simple coffee, steaming, and hot water controls have turned the once-daunting tasks of brewing an espresso, Americano, or Cappuccino into a delightful experience. Single touch drink buttons can be programmed to your desired size, and the stainless steel Rapid Steam is ready to brew or steam in a hurry. A first for Saeco, the Syntia has a concealed front-access water tank. New quiet operation features include a magnetically secured drip tray and a sound-insulated ceramic grinder with an air-tight bean hopper lid. As an added bonus, the Saeco Syntia SS also allows you to brew espresso from pre-ground coffee, a fantastic feature for the occasional decaf.
