Saeco Xelsis Digial ID - Custom Drinks via Fingerprint Reader
Coffee is a very personal thing and everyone enjoys "their" special brew. Well the folks at Saeco have taken things to a new level and not only offer you the ability to customize your drink, but they also give you the ability to get that drink at the swipe of your finger. The SuperAutomatic espresso drink center can grind, tamp and brew your espresso while steaming your milk to create a great espresso drink, but maybe you want a larger sup, a stronger shot, more or less milk.
Features and a video after the jump…..
The Saeco Xelsis Digital ID allows you to create that personal drink and remembers up to six custom drink profiles that can be called up by a touch of the finger on the top of biometric reader.
The machine has typical high-end SuperAutomatic Espresso Machine features:
Adjustable ceramic burr grinders,
An integrated milk carafe that can be stored in the refrigerator, then hooked to the machine to automatically steam milk into your cup when selecting your drink,
Adjustable height on the brew head to accommodate talker mugs/cups
A large whole bean holding bin for your favorite coffee beans
Bypass chute to brew directly from ground coffee - think nightly decaf latte
Dual Boiler design that allows you to brew and steam, and a large capacity 1.6 liter water reservoir.
The Saeco Xelsis Digital ID also has the ability to adjust the crema level with a quick-adjustable knob, and a removable brew group to just rinse under the faucet to clean it.
This Super Auto will set you back a bit, just like other ones - at around $2,500.
The folks over at SeattleCoffeeGear put together nice walk through video. Here you go.
