Saeco S-TG-ST Giro Super Automatic Espresso Machine
The Saeco S-TG-ST Giro Super Automatic Espresso Machine is one of those high end whole bean to cup machines that makes sipping a great espresso a push button experience. May not be for those who prefer to roll up your sleeves and get into the process, but it can certainly offer flexibility to fine tune your cup of espresso with precision and control. The Saeco S-TG-ST Giro Super Automatic Espresso Machine offers you the ability to put whole beans into the top, push a button and the unit grinds, tamps, and pumps at high pressure the heated water needed to pull a wonderful cup of espresso.
The Saeco S-TG-ST Giro Super Automatic Espresso Machine is a stylish design that incorporates a dial up front which offers you the ability to dial up or down the amount of espresso that is pulled, from a short ristretto to a full 7 ounces. The unit can also dose 7 to 10.5 grams of coffee per pull, making for loads of combinations. The Saeco S-TG-ST Giro Super Automatic Espresso Machine has a ceramic grinder, which is apparently a lot quieter than metal burr grinders.
I have used several Super Autos and it’s actually fairly easy to dial in a good espresso with these and get a nice shot. What can be difficult is to wing it and try to deviate and get a nice 7 ounce cup of coffee when you are used to pulling espresso shots.
The unit features a 57 ounce water reservoir, and of course a grounds bin to hold the spent coffee pucks. To further improve the taste of your coffee, the unit has an integrated water filter.
