Bean Container and Grinder
Another great feature of this Saeco espresso machine is 500 gr coffee bean container. Most of the similar priced bean-to-cup coffee machines has 250 gr capacity bean container. Saeco Lirika’s capacity is twice of this capacity. This is also great. You will refill bean coffee container less frequently.
Besides 500 gr coffee bean capacity, Saeco Lirika has ceramic blades. This is also a big plus compared to stainless steel blades. Ceramic grinders are superior to stainless-steel type grinders. Because, stainless-steel grinders easily heat as it is used. After a while, coffee beans start to burnt and you get ruin flavor from any coffee you made. But at ceramic grinder you will not meet such a thing.
This Saeco one touch has 0,5 Liter drip tray and 15 portions coffee grounds capacity which are higher than similar machines.
Lirika has a 80 db noise level, while grinding. Similar home bean-to-cup coffee machines has 65-70 db noise level. 80 db is higher than others, but acceptable. If you want a more silent automatic coffee maker, Siemens EQ3 might be a better choice.
