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: 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: 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.
Summary: Learning how to use this machine is super easy with the set up DVD. Everything is automatic. Put beans, milk and water in, pusha button and get a coffee, latte, capp (great foam) or just hot water or milk. Even tells you when to empty the grounds, fill the water, cleans the spouts itself and tells you when to do a de-scaleing treatment based on the hardness of your water. Love it!
