How To: Installing the Saeco Panarello

Whether you’re looking to upgrade the stock plastic panarello on your Saeco Via Venezia or Aroma with the stainless steel version or you just need to replace a well-loved panarello on your Sirena, the most important thing to keep in mind is: Do not lose those compression fittings! These aren’t sold separately, so if you lose one, you’ve gotta pick up a whole new assembly.

Watch Gail as she walks us through how to install a panarello on the Via Venezia.

Blind Taste Test: Rocket Giotto vs. Nuova Simonelli Musica

Crew Review: Mahlkonig K30 Vario Commercial Grinder

If you’re going to do it, just do it, okay? No half steps! No ginger movements! No quasi-commitments! If you’re serious about making great coffee at your home or business, you seriously have to consider Mahlkonig’s K30 Vario. What? You don’t have an extra $1800 to drop on your grinder alone? That’s no excuse! Okay, maybe it is.

Nevertheless, even if you’re not willing to pick up one of these exceptional grinders because of mortgage payments or your child’s college fund, you can still enjoy watching the lovely conversion of form and function as Gail walks us through features and functionality, then demonstrates how well this baby grinds. Enjoy!

Crew Review: Saeco Incanto DeLuxe Superauto

This is one of our crew faves (from !!!Bunny!!!) and we realized the only video crew review we had done on this machine covered the refurbished models we work on and carry. So we thought we’d take you through a brand spankin’ new model — which performs exactly as a refurb, it’s just a little bit shinier. Watch Gail take us through her usual lecture on the Incanto Deluxe’s features and functionality, then demonstrate making a latte.
