Quality automatic espresso doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg! The Saeco Incanto HD8911/47 brings easy espresso at an even easier pricepoint. The Incanto’s built-in ceramic burrs make short work of grinding your favorite beans, automatically dose into Saeco’s signature brew unit, and brews into your cup at the touch of a button. Looking for lattes? No barista training necessary: a self-frothing steam wand heats and froths milk for you. And, you get Saeco’s most popular time-tested features—dishwasher-safe accessories, 5 grinder adjustments, optional water filters, and time programmable shot buttons— all encased in an attractive, easy to maintain unit.
Features and Functionality
Panarello Prowess – Panarello steam wands offer better temperature control than automatic frothing varieties.
Top Tank – Water and bean reservoirs located on the top of the machine means effortless top-ups.
Easy Programming – Simply press and hold your menu options to program shot volume.
Power-saving – Programmable auto-off functionality lets you set your Incanto to turn off between 15 minutes and 2 hours of use.
Removable Brew Unit – Pop out the Incanto’s brew unit from the side of the machine for ultra-simple cleaning and maintenance.
Simplicity – The Incanto carries Saeco’s tried-and-true brew functionality, and very little else. It makes for a particularly enjoyable experience once everything is set up.
Consistent Coffee – An oft unspoken benefit of superautomatics, you can depend on your espresso to be consistent day-to-day and shot-to-shot.
Water Tank – A quick flip of the water tank lid makes it easy to refill the tank quickly.
Top Tank – However, if you’ll be putting your machine under a cabinet, the top-loading bean and water tanks get old fast.
Spout Height – The adjustable spout height is nice for mugs, but doesn’t really adjust low enough to brew into shot glasses without risking a little mess.
