It also makes a really good espresso from whole beans, can froth milk, and go from standby mode to ready to brew in roughly a minute. As far as coffee makers go, it’s the fanciest one that’s ever graced my kitchen countertop. The machine in question is the Saeco GranBaristo Avanti made by Philips PHG -0.88% . It is part of a new class of machines known as super automatics, because they do everything for you—from grinding your favourite beans to pumping water over them at the appropriate pressure to make an espresso. The machine can even rinse the entire brewing apparatus when it’s done, so all you have to worry about is keeping the machine full of water and beans to enjoy coffee at the push of a button.
