Saeco Incanto HD8911/47 Overview

Saeco is a great brand with high-quality products, and I doubt you’ll be disappointed owning one of their premium super-automatic models.

What do I love about this machine?

(Aside from the fact it’s a Saeco.)

The LCD screen is a great feature. You also get the water hardness setting unique to the Saecos on this list. The compact brew group is also removable for easy cleaning.

On the downside, this machine is not made with stainless steel. Instead it has a plastic exterior.

Aside from the couple other cons noted below, there aren’t many negatives I have to say about this machine.

Pros

  • Adjustable exit nozzles accommodates larger cups
  • Simple to use with consistent result
  • Great milk frother
  • Comes with water hardness test strips and adjustable setting for your water’s hardness

Cons

  • Adjustable exit nozzle doesn’t accommodate short demitasse cups
  • Doesn’t come with a water filter
  • Plastic exterior

Is the Saeco Incanto HD8911/47 for you?

Is Saeco Incanto HD8911/47 for you?

I’m a big fan of Saeco — their extended brew group warranty is especially great — and I’d recommend almost any Saeco espresso machine.

That goes doubly for the highly-rated Incanto HD9811/47.
