Summary: We absolutely love the coffee from this machine. We have a real hard time drinking any other coffee! We are spoiled by the ease of operation and the flavor of the coffee! We like so much we have purchased a DeLonghi for each of our kids to enjoy!
Summary: This unit worked fine for a little over a year, but failed well within the two-year warranty period. Delonghi did not have internal repair or service facility so had to wait almost three weeks for them to send packing instructions and material for shipment to third party repair center. Many emails and phone calls later, to both Delonghi and the third party repair center, finally had the machine repaired and returned to me, about two months in all.
Summary: I have progressed over the years from basic brewed, ground coffee to fresh ground, brewed coffee, then to burr mill ground, brewed coffee, and finally, to this Delonghi Rialto Automatic Espresso Coffeemaker. Wow! This machine is the ultimate in enjoying a cup of coffee. I have to ration myself now to drink in moderation. It is hard to go back to even burr mill ground, brewed coffee now. I have owned this machine for 6 months now.
Summary: Making a cappuccino with this machine is so easy, even a Caveman can do it!! We lived in Italy for three years and grew to love real Italian espresso and cappuccino. This machine makes it!! The machine it replaces in our house used Starbuck's coffee pods ($4.95/box, 10 pods per box!) and required us to stand at the machine to steam/foam our milk by hand in our own container - NOT FUN.
Summary: This is a great automatic espresso machine!! What more can I say? I have to admit it is my first machine, but I could not be happier. Coffee is a big part of my day, and on a recent cruise, my husband was introduced to espresso (we had a Lavazza machine in our cabin) and he very quickly learned to like it. That was all the excuse I needed to make this purchase "for him"! After much research I chose this machine because of favorable reviews.
Summary: It works great and the coffee is delicious. It is easy to use. I had done some research this model has great features. I have since bought one for my daughter and a friend also bought one after seeing ours.
Summary: The DeLonghi Rialtois is an exceptional automatic espresso machine. One push of a button and I have a delicious frothy wet cappuccino. You figure out how you want your drink made and the machine memorizes your preferences. Instead of frothing the milk yourself, it does it for you and you can set it to latte - which is just basically warmed up milk, or cappuccino, which gives you some nice froth. Three weeks after the purchase an o-ring broke.
Summary: After having suffered thru the likes of a Sulton 2 for all and a Krupps xp2070 coffee/cappuccino machines, I have discovered one thing, the combination machines dont do either coffee, espresso/cappuccino very well. Me wife almost killed me when I told her that I wanted to by a $1,000.00 espresso machine, but after explaining that I had already spent more than that on 2 machines that didnt work within a few months of getting them, and that I found one on eBay for $499.00,...
Summary: Just bought this machine and delivers the best tasting coffee ever. The only drawback, is that for regular and latte, the water could be hotter, however the cappuchino comes out just great. Easy use and setup, just push the right button, and BAM you get your cup of coffee. Mill is a bit lound when grinding, but you must expect this of any machine.
