Really enjoying this coffee maker.
Anyone looking to purchase this product be aware that it does not come with the Aqua filter. I was quite relieved that I’d ordered the filter as a “backup” so could use the machine after unboxing.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Review by Mark K. on 15 March 2023

I bought this product a few years ago and not via this website. For Philips, this is a great entry product from the SAECO stable of Italian coffee machines.

Easy to clean and maintain and makes consistently good coffee.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
