Saeco Renaissance XX Thermal Coffee Maker

Updated on January 26, 2010

One look at the Renaissance XX Thermal Coffeemaker and you'll immediately see that the designers at Saeco have transformed the traditional drip coffeemaker into a work-of-art. Not only is this coffeemaker sleek looking, it also has features like a digital clock stylishly set against a cobalt blue background, programmable brew time, and automatic shutoff. And with its 10-cup thermal insulated stainless steel carafe, you will be able to keep your fresh brewed coffee hot for hours.

Saeco Renaissance XX Thermal Coffee Maker Controls

With its touch pad design, the Renaissance is one of the easiest machines on the market to operate. 2 brewing buttons on the control panel give you the option to either brew immediately or program a brew time up to 24 hours in advance, and the XX also features dedicated Hour and Minute buttons to make programming even easier, and automatically shuts off once brewing is complete.

Saeco Renaissance XX Thermal Coffee Maker Performance

The Renaissance XX can brew up to 10 cups of hot coffee in less than 9 minutes. Although this drip coffee maker doesn't feature any specific settings for smaller pots, you can brew as few as 2 cups of coffee simply by altering the amount of coffee and water you add to the machine. In addition, its stainless steel retains heat and flavor extremely well, making it a welcome addition to any coffee lover's arsenal.

Saeco Renaissance XX Thermal Coffee Maker Construction

The brewing unit and 10-cup thermal insulated stainless steel carafe is solidly constructed of brushed stainless steel. There are accents of high gloss ABS plastic over the entire machine in two-tone black and silver.


The stainless steel carafe is virtually airtight when closed completely, which helps keep coffee hot for hours. Once the carafe is in place, a button is depressed to allow the machine to brew directly into the carafe.

Hot Plate

Thanks the the thermal carafe's heat retention capabilities, the Renaissance XX doesn't have - or need - a hot plate.


To fill the Renaissance XX with water, simply open the top of the unit and pour 50 oz of water into the rear-mounted reservoir. Although there are no water level indicators, simply filling the XX's carafe with water and pouring it into the reservoir will produce a guess-free full pot.

Water Filtration

The Saeco Renaissance XX does not have a built-in water filtration system. However, to keep your coffee tasting its best and the XX in tip-top shape, you should try using only filtered water in this drip coffee maker. This will help to avoid scale build-up, which keeps your machine healthy. By all means don't ever let your coffee machine get dirty as the slightest contamination of any kind with any component which comes in contact with either the coffee or the water will impart a completely unacceptable flavor and aroma to your coffee. You do so much to ensure the perfect cup of espresso, cappuccino or latte coffee, so why spoil it by keeping your coffee maker in an unhygienic condition? Keep your drip or espresso coffee machine absolutely spotlessly clean and perfectly sterilized and sanitized and you will be completely amazed at what an enormous difference it makes to both the aroma and the flavor of your cup of coffee.
