Summary: I was so glad to find this. I have owned several of these espresso makers. I wore them out. This is an excellent, inexpensive espresso maker. Don't ask me why DeLonghi has changed its design. The new ones are not nearly as good. Thank God for ebay!!
Summary: It's my own fault but I was not prepared for the footprint size this takes on my limited counter space. It now resides on the top of the refrigerator when not in use, which is daily. It makes great coffee but the pot drips like crazy UNLESS YOU POUR SLOWLY. Then it works just fine. For ~$20 - it's certainly worth that to me but probably would buy separate units if I were to do it again.
Summary: i like this DeLonghi Caffe Nabucco BCO70 Espresso Machine & Coffee Maker it does all tea,espresso, coffee,all my favorites, it is a great product.five stars for me again.i do agree with the folks it dose need timer for machine, but great machine thanks so much christian, i have done all these great job.seller was wonderful and neat clean and great job on packing.
Summary: I have had this coffeemaker for over 2 years now, and I can honestly say that I haven't had any of the problems described by other reviewers. It's simply a fantastic coffee/espresso maker with no bells and whistles. It brews a great cup of coffee, and the espresso isn't too bad either. When I brew plain old Folgers coffee, guests rave and ask me what kind of coffee I'm brewing, thinking it's some specialty brand.
Summary: I just bought a BCO 70 coffee maker at our local thrift store for $5.00 because they said the steamer didn't work. Seems to work fine for me!! Now I have two espresso machines, one in the house and one in my garage/workshop. What a deal!!
Have used this coffee maker since 2002 and it is still working

Summary: I purchased this model from Fry's in 2002 and today I'm still enjoying my morning cup of joe today like I have for 7 days a week for 7 years. There have been some issues like the water leaking out of the basket, but the fix for that is to clean the spray hole and the problem went away. We use the espresso side about 4-6 times per month and never had a problem with it.
Summary: I bought this product about a month ago because I really enjoy coffee and I thought an espresso/cappuccino maker [...] isnt bad. when I received it in the mail I was really excited. About a week later was the first time that I actually had time to use it. The espresso part of the machine didnt work. The knobs to adjust the how strong of coffee you want didnt turn. It just looks nice in my kitchen. So basically I paid [...] for just a regular coffee maker.
Summary: This is the second exact coffee maker I purchased. I love to have a coffee lattee every morning and this maker provides that with ease. I loved mine so much I purchased the second one as a birthday present for my daughter. The fill tank is convienent and clean up is a breeze. I don't drink expresso so this part of my machine has never gotten used.
Summary: overall, i like the product. some drawbacks are that the milk doesnt froth up as much as expected, but it does make it hot. it also makes a horrible sceaching sound when making the cappacino and tends to spill over quickly. if i had to choose this one again i'd think twice for me.
