Question about Saeco Odea Giro Plus Coffee Maker
Is there a way to adjust the strength of the coffee brew? I have tried adjusting the grind but the coffee is still weak in my opinion. When I look at the brew, it appears to be quite strong at the beginning but then becomes quite watery. Any suggestions?
I just spoke to someone at customer service. My coffee has been weak and kind of thin. We had the Superautomatica by Saceo for years and I remembered the coffee being richer.
Anyway! The person suggested that I adjust the grind but slowly. So set it to the coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. Then put it to the 2nd-coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. To the third, brew 2-3 cups. To the forth, brew 2-3 cups. Etc. Until you're at the finest grind setting. Again, brew 2-3 cups. An awfully sensitive machine. It seems to have worked although the last few seconds of brewing continue to be a kind of milky colour (as opposed to a deep black coffee colour). You can, though, press the "cup" button to stop the brew. So once, it starts running milky, you can stop the cycle.
I hope this helps. I know I've been struggling and cursing the machine for a while :)

The machine you have has a Opti Dose system, which means it senses the amount of coffee grind. If overloading the brewunit, it will automatically reduce the amount of grind by 10, it too little it will increase the amount of grindby 2.Itis controlled by the drawing of current from the gear motor.So it is important that brewunit is kept cleaned and well lubricate to get optimum amount.

Not really a coffee expert myself but if your griding your own coffee perhaps changing the brand of beans your using might give you a stronger richer coffee.
it maybe helpful to find a coffee you like in your local coffee shop / starbucks and ask them if they sell the beans that make it then have ago at recreating it at home.
if possible you may want to check and clean any filters you have in your coffee maker as these may need cleaning replacing as well?
