Founded in 1981, The Saeco International Group, now part of Philips Electronics, is a world leader in the manufacture of fully (or super) automatic espresso and coffee machines for both household and commercial use. Each Saeco super automatic espresso machine holds true to its heritage and brews as closely as possible to a true Italian espresso. Each Philips Saeco machine precisely grinds, doses, tamps and brews espresso and coffee from freshly roasted whole beans. Many machines offer the option to use pre-ground coffees as well as One Touch Cappuccino functions. JL Hufford is proud to be a long-standing authorized dealer of Saeco equipment such as the Odea, Syntia, Intelia, Royal, Exprelia and Xelsis lines of fully automatic coffee centers.
