Description Detailed Specs

Saeco Xelsis Digital ID Automatic Coffee Center

Industry First Finger Print Reader

If the mere ability to store 6 individual users with a full drink menu for each weren't enough for you, the Saeco Xelsis Digital ID turns it up a notch with the home espresso industry's very first fingerprint reader. The Xelsis Digital ID will remember 6 unique fingerprints. Rather than scrolling through icons that represent each user, simply place your fingertip on the reader as shown to the right. The Saeco Xelsis Digital ID will automatically change to your user profile, which can be programmed with most any name of your choosing. The color touch panel allows each user to program their favorite drinks into each of the 6 one touch beverage buttons and then program a name for each user profile. That's a whopping 36 unique drinks in one compact appliance. If you've ever stumbled to your espresso machine, pushed your once-favorite button, and got some foreign drink, you are going to love having your own user profile.

One Touch Cappuccino, Latte, and other Espresso Drinks

What is One Touch? Exactly what we mean. On the Saeco Xelsis Digital ID, simply press the animated color touch panel once and only once and it will dispense the complete drink of your choice with no additional work done on your part. If you want a cappuccino, the Xelsis will dispense the frothed milk directly into your cup followed by freshly ground and brewed espresso. The Xelsis then cleans its Italian brewing system by dumping the spent coffee puck into a removable drawer and also its integrated milk container by blasting a purge of steam and hot water into the drip tray. The possibilities are endless and couldn't be easier.

Ceramic Grinder with Bonus

The ceramic coffee grinder is one of Saeco's most unique innovations, available exclusively in the latest generations of Saeco Super Automatic Coffee Centers. After careful research, Saeco chose this material for the Xelsis Digital ID to put an end to grinding with metal components to ensure the best results without altering the flavor of coffee. With 5 grind settings, you are certain to be able to tune you Xelsis to both the freshness and roast of many coffee blends (still not the super dark/oily ones). The Xelsis has a 12 ounce bean hopper with an air tight lid for the bean hopper that features a UV-filtering coating to keep your beans fresh for as long as possible.

Automatic Pre-Infusion Brewing

The Xelsis Digital incorporates the Saeco Aroma System® to extract the full aroma of coffee beans into every cup. A special pre-programmed step injects a small amount of hot water into the freshly ground coffee to start a pre-brewing process. The actual brewing cycle normally begins about 2 seconds afterward, allowing for enough time to fully saturate the grounds and achieve maximum flavor. The Saeco Xelsis Digital ID grants you the ability to adjust the amount of pre-infusion time for that extra bit of tweakability. Enjoy perfect espresso every time topped with golden crema that fills your senses with the rich warm aroma of truly fine coffee, all in under 60 seconds.

Dual Milk Frothing Systems

The Saeco Xelsis Digital ID features dual milk frothing technology to satisfy both types of latte lovers: those who need One Touch operation, and those who want the ultimate control. Other so-called luxury systems saddle you into One Touch only, which is fine for most, but typically restrictive for those who want the hottest milk or want to make some latte art. To make an One Touch cappuccino or latte, simply press your custom button and frothed or steamed (your choice) milk will instantly dispense right into your cup, followed by espresso. The milk container automatically cleans itself by purging with steam and hot water right to the drip tray, and is refrigerator-safe. If you prefer to try your hand at making microfoam for latte art (or just for hotter milk), you can use the stainless steel steam wand at the left of the unit.

Customizable Italian Brewing System

Beginning with the award-winning Italian brewing system, the Saeco Xelsis Digital ID adds a number of tools to help you brew espresso to your precise taste.  The Saeco Brewing System (SBS) dial allows you to actually choose how much flavor and aroma to extract during the brewing process by changing the pressure, offering a nearly infinite drink menu. In addition, the standard Saeco OptiDose® System allows you to adjust the amount of coffee to be ground for each beverage, from 7 to 10.5 grams (mild to strong).

InstaSteam Stainless Steel Boiler

The power plant of the Saeco Xelxis Digital ID is made of two stainless steel-lined ThermoBlock boilers, one for brewing and one for steam. Unlike a traditional boiler, thermoblocks offer rapid warm-up times paired with efficient, on-demand water usage. Turn on the Xelsis Digital ID, and it will be ready to brew in just a few moments. The second InstaSteam® boiler is always ready for steam on unlimited steam on demand. ThermoBlock technology channels the water through the heating element while minimizing the amount of water heated to what the user demands. This process ensures water does not become stale sitting in a boiler for an extended period of time. In addition, the Saeco Xelsis Digital ID allows you to use the manual steam wand as a dedicated spout for instant and piping hot water for tea and Americanos.

Energy Saving and Automatic On/Off

Among the many features of the Saeco Xelsis Digital ID is its ability save you money in electricity costs. If you plan on using your Xelsis most of the day but do not want to shut it off completely, set the energy saving mode activate after a certain amount of time. When you are ready to brew espresso again, it will turn on much more rapidly than it would from a cold start.

Brewing Pre-Ground Coffee

Do you want to try a decaf roast or perhaps a different blend without having to empty your bean hopper? A lid on the top of the Xelsis Digital ID can be lifted to reveal an opening for ground coffee. Just choose the "pre-ground" option on the touch panel, then deposit a scoop ground coffee into the opening on top of the machine, then press the brew button. When you are ready to brew again, the Xelsis resets to using the beans in the hopper.

Water Filtration

The Saeco Xelsis can utilize the included Intenza water filter to not only improve the taste of your coffee, but also protect the internal components of the machine. Regular replacement of the Intenza filter ensures the removal of chlorine, lead, aluminum, and copper for a better tasting coffee. It will also reduce the formation of limescale and protect the Xelsis Digital ID from the corrosive nature of tap water. The standard 54 ounce water reservoir can easily be refilled by removing it with the easy-grip handle and filling it at the kitchen tap.

Solid Construction

The Saeco Xelsis Digital ID features a solid stainless steel body for supreme durability, which is then chrome plated for a brilliant luster. The oversized chromed stainless drip tray allows you to fit various cups under the spouts. Integrated water tank and bean hopper are easily accessible from the top of the machine, perfectly complementing the Xelsis"™s design.

Easy Cleanup

The patented Saeco Easy Clean System® removable internal brew group has been tested millions of times throughout the world. It only takes a simple gesture for it to be quickly and easily removed from the machine and cleaned. Just rinse it under running water to remove all traces of dirt and coffee residues, which when left inside the machine, change the flavor of the coffee and interfere with the correct functioning of the brew group. This simple cleaning, when done in conjunction with the automatic descaling, brew group cleaning, and milk cleaning cycles, ensures the Xelsis Digital ID will produce consistently delicious espresso every time you turn it on.

For Use with Superautomatika® Blend

It's a little known fact that Super Automatic espresso coffee centers brew the best coffee when using only a special kind of bean. While it's true that the Saeco Xelsis Digital ID can be filled with most kinds of coffee beans, the greatest flavor and tallest crema are achieved when brewing Superautomatika® Blend, the only coffee crafted specifically for super-automatic machines. The beans that make up Superautomatika® Blend are picked, roasted, and blended solely for use in super automatic coffee centers. When you purchase a new Saeco Xelsis through J.L. Hufford, a sample of this exclusive blend is included.
