Philips is a company best known for its breakthrough innovations in consumer electronics. The electric razor, cassette tape, VCR and CD were all invented by Philips, to name but a few.

Meanwhile, Saeco is an Italian company that is world famous for creating premium quality coffee machines. So when Philips acquired Saeco in 2009, you’d be forgiven for asking the question: what has coffee got to do with electronics?

More than you’d think. The coffee machines of today are highly intelligent, making it easier than ever before to prepare fresh espresso coffee at home regardless of your barista skills. The merging of Philips and Saeco is one of the best things that could have happened to the coffee machine market as it means outstanding coffee for absolute minimum effort.

Launched in 2010, the Philips Saeco Xelsis is the celebrated offspring of Philips and Saeco’s union. The Xelsis has received many glowing reviews, largely thanks to its unique time-saving features:

Bean to cup

With the Xelsis there’s no need for a separate grinder – your machine grinds whole beans fresh for every cup, giving you the freshest, most flavoursome espresso possible.

User profiles

This machine allows you to program up to 6 unique user profiles, so every member of the family can have coffee exactly how they like it at the touch of a button. You can customise the strength, crema level, and milk froth volume to suit your unique tastes.

Automatic cleaning

The Xelsis has automatic cleaning and de-scaling cycles, saving you the effort of cleaning the interior of the machine. The cleaner your coffee machine, the better your coffee tastes.

Integrated milk function

For perfect milk just the way you like it, simply fill the milk carafe and let the machine take care of everything. Alternatively the Xelsis also has a milk wand so you can manually froth milk if you prefer.

The Xelsis is just one of many fantastic Philips Saeco coffee machines available at Appliances Online. If you’re looking for an espresso machine that gives you the authentic taste of Italy at the touch of a button, a Philips Saeco coffee maker is an investment you won’t regret.
