Saeco Automatic Coffee Machines – History
Saeco and Philips are two consolidated, global brands with a long tradition in the sector of coffee machines.
Saeco was founded in 1981 in Italy, in Gaggio Montano, near Bologna.
In 1985, it was the first manufacturer in the world to design the “bean-to-cup“, an innovative, completely automatic system for the brewing of Italian espresso. In the last thirty years Saeco has been developing machines that can adapt to the different lifestyles and requirements of its customers, in both the consumer and professional channels. The purchase of Gaggia in 1999 is further proof of the progress made by the company in trying to promote Italian excellence.
Since 2009 Philips, a leading, consolidated brand in the coffee world thanks to its drip filter and Senseo technologies, has been working with Saeco to create a universal player able to cover the whole range of demand for coffee machines. The synergy between Philips and Saeco led to the creation of a new, exclusive “Business Unit Coffee“, to bring innovation to this sector, to the benefit of the final consumer.
The “Business Unit Coffee“ is divided into three different product categories: “Roast & Ground“, for low-pressure brewed coffee, “Full Auto & Manual Espresso“, with high pressure technology for coffee extraction Italian style, and “Vending & Professional“, focusing on premises outside the home and offering solutions for vending, Ho.Re.Ca. and office.The latter category sees Saeco as one of the main players in the field, thanks to its autonomous production unit that can offer consumers “quality moments” throughout the day.
For this reason, Saeco Vending & Professional has become known as a company that can produce technological, simple and elegant machines, whose “Made in Italy” design and manufacture are a source of considerable pride.
