The grinding feature is easy to use, and upon initial setup of the Saeco 4038 Vienna Plus Espresso Machine using the Quick Set-up Guide included in the users manual the first cup of the beverage of your choice can be ready in minutes.
Some aspects of the users manual can be a bit more difficult to follow, so a little patience may be needed for full operation of all features when strictly following the manual. With practice the operation of the espresso machine is easy even if the buttons that operate it are a little clunky.
Along with the ability to make a wide range of drinks it takes up less space than other espresso makers of comparable price. Plus its design makes it convenient to clean.
The end result will be a tasty beverage with a flavor that rivals chain coffee houses for a fraction of the cost. And the Pannarello frothing wand is able to create foam even with 2% milk which is not always the case for other machines in the same price range.
Overall the feedback for the Saeco 4038 Vienna Plus Espresso Machine has been positive. This product has the ability to create a strong but inexpensive cup of coffee especially designed to fit personal taste, and it is easy to set up and works as advertised.
