Saeco Via Venezia Manual Espresso RI9367/47 Restyling Stainless steel
Great bang for the buck!
My 15-year old Venezia was replaced with a new unit this Christmas. After 15 years, the pump on the old one was getting a little weak. Like the old one, this new unit makes great espresso, but quicker and with more crema. The Pannarello froths the milk perfectly with lots of tiny bubbles for latte art. Makes better espresso than the automatic machines now at Starbucks cafes. I like that I can have Smatra one day and Kona the next. Once you get the grinding and tamping down, you can make better espresso than any automatic machine. My machine was made in Europe (Romaina), not China!

What was old is new again!
I had this exact machine made by Saeco for about 15 years then it finally died after literally every day use and then I was unable to find a new one. I was delighted to see Saeco was making this machine again and bought one right away! It is even nicer than my old one because it's stainless steel. Very nice looking! And what a work house!
