Question: What is the difference between this machine (Philips Saeco Carina) and the Saeco 3200? They seem very similar Abram F on Oct 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Carina (1200) does not have the chrome bezel, and it is missing 2 buttons: Americano & Espresso Lungo. I bought the 3200 and am thinking now I would have been fine with the Carina since I don't see myself ever making an Americano of Lungo, though I don't regret my purchase at all -- I just have 2 extra buttons.
