SCG Tech Tips: Saeco Superautomatic Brew Groups

Saeco Superautomatic Brew GroupsThere are many things in life that have been attributed to such nebulous sources as ‘science’ or ‘engineering’ that are actually deeply rooted in magic. The chromatophores of cephalopods, gelatin-based foodstuffs, magnets — these are just a few examples of magic being passed off as ordinary. It’s unfortunate that their provenance isn’t more keenly celebrated, but we understand why: It’s far easier for people to get their head around these experiences if they disregard their obvious mojo.

And while it’s tempting to add the brew groups of Saeco Superautomatic Espresso Machines to this list, these are actually not operated by tiny magical beings inside your espresso machine; they truly are the result of some fine-tuned mechanical engineering. But don’t take our word for it! Learn all about them with Brendan — what they do, how they work, how to care for them, troubleshooting tips and more.

    What Rack do you put the brew unit on in the dishwasher, top or bottom?

    I have an odea go, and there does not seem to be a way to extract the screen screw from the top. I took the entire piece holding the screw off of the unit, and am trying to remove the screw from the front (screen side). am i missing something? thanks.

      Apparently, some of the older Odeas didn’t have the brew screen screw, but you can release the screen from the top part using an allen wrench (our techs think it’s a #5) and then, once you unscrew it a bit, you can continue to remove it by hand. Let me know if that helps :)
