Crew Review: Saeco Nina Bar

What started out as pretty darn good in theory didn’t end up very nice in practice. Saeco’s attempt at an easy-to-use single boiler automatic, the Nina Bar, leaves much to be desired. We don’t love all the plastic, the low quality metal used in the portafilter (which doesn’t hold heat very well) or the steaming power. It’s nice, however, that you can program the shot timing and if you’re looking for something a little more stylized than the Aroma, you might dig the case and design.

Watch Gail as she goes over the Nina Bar’s features, pros, cons and demonstrates how to make a latte.

    I have this machine, the steam power is amazingly powerful! u can change to a gaggia portafilter or any 58 mm.. not sure, but gaggia for sure.
    thinking maybe to change the steam wand.. maybe racilio v3 .. (cause of the round wand this machine has)
    little upgrades will make it very good.
