Skip your quick-stop coffee and its long lines, expensive substitutions, and confusing menus with the Philips Carina 1200 Superautomatic Espresso Machine. A spiritual successor to the Saeco Vienna Plus, the Carina offers a futuristic featureset fit for the modern kitchen. Simple operation, minimal maintenance, and good coffee are all just a quick touch away. Dedicated espresso and coffee buttons save your size and strength settings, leaving foam frothing up to you with a panarello-style steam wand. Maintenance is similarly streamlined: Add-on AquaClean smart filtration keeps track of the number of drinks you make between filter changes, a water reservoir and dump box that load from the front, and a generously-sized 10-ounce bean hopper for less refills and more ristrettos. More than a list of features, the Carina comes in at a competitive pricepoint even against capsule machines and steam-powered faux-espresso makers. Save on the coffee you love with the Philips Carina Espresso Machine.

  • All-In-One - The Carina 1200 grinds, brews, and froths—all in a compact coffee package.
  • Panarello Steam Wand - This auto-frothing wand makes the foam for you, while still giving you control over temperature and texture.
  • Programmable Drinks - Each drink button can be preset to your favorite recipe, and changed on the fly with handy dose and volume buttons.
  • AquaClean Equipped - Add Philip's smart-sensing water filter to track usage—letting you go up to 5000 cups without the need to descale.
  • Front Loading Water Tank - Oft-overlooked, the Carina's 1.8L slide out water reservoir is refillable without having to move your machine.
  • Bean Hopper - The Carina's 10-ounce bean hopper offers ample shots between refills.
  • Pros
    • Cost-Effective Cappuccinos - If you currently drink a couple of cafe cappuccinos a day, you're Carina will have you saving money in just a few months.
    • Maintenance Magic - No water worries here; easy refills and a set-and-forget water filter means less effort, more espresso.
    • Simplicity - The Carina trades microcustomizability for ease of operation—a tap or two is all you need for your morning cup.
  • Cons
    • Button Backlights - Small amber LEDs are the only indicators you get on the machine.
    • Two-Step - While the dedicated brew button gives you the option to adjust your drink before brewing, once you have it set to your favorites the extra step is largely unnecessary.
  • Tips and Tricks
    Too hot? Press and hold the coffee strength button while the machine is off to adjust temperature.
