Summary: This is a great machine. I would recommend you froth the milk before doing the coffee as it takes a while and the coffee gets cold while you do the milk. You get good tasting latte's very professional. It looks like you can have a double shot but really it's just 1 so not really strong enough for 2 coffees I recommend using the 2 shots for 1 cup. This is great value good tasting coffee for the money and would recommend this to buy.
Summary: for the price this is a very good machine. I have more expensive machines but often find I prefer the coffee from this machine. Only down side I can think of is it only has one size filter for the coffee, so no double shot in one!
Summary: Read reviews that recommended de longi ec152 and decided it was worth trying. Am so glad I did as it's nicely priced for a coffee making novice like me plus the instructions are so simple and the coffee was superb. My family love the cappuccinos as well.
Summary: this is my third espresso maker and without doubt it is the quickest and gives the most authentic crema. It can make a latte or cappuccino in the same time as the kettle boils to make an instant coffee.
Pros: Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Great Taste, Quick Brewing
Summary: The only problem is the Steam pipe needs to be a bit longer. Had to put this on top of bread bin for some height. Only used to drink one cappuccino a day (ready made) but quite addicted to them now LOL. Suppose the novelty will wear off plus will have to get my hubby to show me how to use this machine.
Pros: Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Great Taste, Large Water Container, Quick Brewing
