Nice unit for the price, just dont expect too much.

Summary: It is an ok unit for the price. You can only use tiny coffee cups, not much room. The brew is not as strong as I like either, not sure why. I have used several different coffee's in it and still weak for my taste. Unit heats up quick, cleans easily, just needs to be taller and make a stronger brew.
Summary: Pues, estoy felíz con mi espresso machine, es práctica y fácil de usar, ah además el café se hace rapidito, es lo mas que megusta. No tengo el envase que se usa para espumar la leche y deseo obtenerlo.
Summary: The Bar 32 makes espresso and cappuccino very well. Steams milk and 1/2 and 1/2 just as well. Easy clean up. Water temp is very good for all of its purposes. Only short coming is it is very light and must be steadied when locking in the brew basket.
Summary: The easiest way to a great cappuccino. The pump and filter make the most crema and the taste is awesome. Steaming is adequate but runs out somewhat quickly, don't pass this one up for that. If you're budget conscious I don't think this can be beat. I own a $200 Gaggia that doesn't work nearly as well.
Very good, simple machine. (Requires a little practice.)

Summary: This is a good machine. It is easy to operate, although it takes a little practice if you're new at it. I had a Krups machine that expired recently, and opted to try this one with happy results. It does not function as automatically as more expensive machines; it's like the difference between automatic and manual transmission in a car. You have to make it start, stop, and do other things you want it to do. Small inconvenience for good espresso.

Summary: I bought this espresso machine to have the convenience of making latte's and espresso at home without making a trip to my local coffee shop, and for the added benefit of the money saved by brewing my own. After some research I knew that I wanted a machine that would operate at 15 bar pressure and included a frother/ steamer. DeLonghi machines had good reviews and were respected by people for their ease of operation and convenience.
Summary: This is the first espresso machine my wife and I have ever owned/operated. At first it seemed a bit difficult compared to a regular drip coffee maker, however after using it a couple of times now, it is really quite simple. So far the only minor complaint is that our regular coffee mugs don't fit in without removing the drip tray (which is no big deal at all) but otherwise we have been pretty impressed... I don't know if we'll ever go back to a drip machine again.
