The new Saeco Talea Giro Plus II features a very stylish exterior and all housed in a very compact footprint. The two tone silver and titanium finish blends well in any decor. Packed with features and with an available "Milk Island" auto frothing attachment, the Talea Giro Plus II is sure to deliver great coffee at a great value in your home.
The Talea Giro Plus II is the value leader in the Talea lineup. Where do the savings come from? Instead of a nifty motorized drip tray that raises and lowers with the touch of a finger - simply raise and lower the same drip tray with your hand. Instead of an i-pod like ring control or a touch screen, the Giro has a twist dial and coffee push button system - like the Saeco Incanto Easy and Saeco Incanto Rondo without a digital screen. The Giro does have the optional bypass doser and metal drip tray plate. Other than that, the Giro Plus has all the great features of the entire Talea line - styling, SBS, Rapid steam, optional Milk Island and more.
The SBS (Saeco Brewing System) allows you to prepare all kinds of coffee - from an espresso to a "cafe crem" coffee always with the signature crema on top, simply by turning the SBS dial. The SBS dial on the front of the brewing dispenser regulates the pump output pressure of the machine. In the full clockwise position you get the intense and flavourful espresso experience. The more the SBS knob is rotated left, the more pressure and brewing water are bypassed and the the coffee becomes more like an American style long (drip) coffee, but with more flavour and crema on top! The Saeco Talea Giro Plus solves the dilemma of different household members wanting different styles of coffee.
At the touch of a button, the Saeco Talea Giro Plus grinds each serving from whole bean, automatically dosing and tamping the coffee, brewing through high-pressure adjustable (SBS) extraction, and dispensing into the cup. The push-button allows you to choose 1 or 2 coffees. The twist dial allows you to select the desired water volume from 1.5 oz to 8 oz. long coffee. The Talea Giro Plus II has coffee pre-infusion for maximum flavour extraction. Used "coffee pucks" are ejected into an internal "dregs drawer", which is accessed by opening the side door. A light warns when the dregs drawer should be emptied.
One of the benefits of the Talea Giro Plus II is the by-pass doser. This allows the user to use 7g of decaf, or any other blend of coffee without having to empty out their existing beans. The true value of this feature comes when having to entertain guests who may only drink decaf, or for a couple who like different coffee blends.
More Features: The innovative, exclusive ceramic grinder, first introduced on the Incanto line, is both quiet and long-lasting. New features include a dual stage long-life Stainless Steel boiler, improved metal pannarello frother and a drip tray which raises and lowers easily with your hand to accommodate your various cup sizes. The ceramic, conical burr grinder has 6 different grind settings. Hot water for tea, etc. is available at the twist of a knob. A swivel base allows easy positioning. The Saeco Talea's Giro Plus II water reservoir can easily be refilled by removing it with the easy-grip handle and filling it at the kitchen tap. The reservoir is made of clear ABS plastic so checking the water level is a breeze. When the water runs low, the display light will remind you to refill the water reservoir.
Maintenance: The Talea Giro Plus II features a patented and industry leading easy-to-remove coffee brewing group, now improved with a 10.5 gram capacity. A main benefit includes being able to quick-rinse the whole coffee-brew in the sink. We recommend rinsing once a week or each time the bean hopper is filled. With the included brew group key the coffee screen can be removed periodically for a more thorough cleaning. The Talea has an automatic cleaning cycle and decalcifying cycle, which can be programmed according to the local water hardness. The new Talea Giro Plus II is a trouble-free and automated way to enjoy all your favourite espresso and milk drinks, teas, and now Cafe Crem and Cafe Americanos at home or at the office!
