The Saeco Syntia Focus is a mid-cost automatic espresso machine geared toward home use. The built-in ceramic grinder prepares whole bean coffee for brewing. With a 1.18 liter removable water tank, this machine can make about five cups of coffee at a time. The three color LED display lets you check the status of your brewing cycle, as well as select your beverage. If your coffee requires froth, the included Pannarello wand provides. Though they have many of the same specs, this model lacks the Rapid Steam boiler, bypass doser and stainless steel housing of the higher cost Syntia Stainless Steel model, having instead a metal/plastic hybrid for its housing.
