Summary: I don't write reviews but I will make an excepcion here: I posses the American version of this coffee maker (110V), for over a year, and we are so satified with it that we decided to buy this 220V model to be used at my second home in South America (Chile) and keep enjoying there the rich, smooth...
Excerpt: I've had many espresso machines before, but when i moved to the UK i had to look for a new one. The fact that i know the brand DeLonghi for a long time made me buy it, hoping that it would suit me and my girlfriend coffee needs and it was the best choice!
Pros: "Easy to Clean", "Amazing Cappuccino", "Amazing Coffee"
Great little machine that looks good on your work top.

Excerpt: My husband is a big coffee drinker so was keen to get himself a little espresso machine. After researching on the internet he came across this machine which seemed to have lots of good reviews for the price. We purchased it from john lewis about a year ago and it has been a great machine ever since.
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.
Summary: My wife runs a couple of coffee shops and when we were visiting UK for an extended period to stay with the inlaws we decided we couldn't live without an espresso machine. We did some reading up and reckoned that this was the best value budget machine.
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. Not too noisy and easy to clean

Excerpt: Whilst working in a bar a few years ago I won some gift vouchers, ironically for coffee sales. So the vouchers were destined from the off for my own coffee machine. I'd always fancied being able to whip up a frothy cappuccino from the comfort of home but probably like the rest of you, I didn't think...
Summary: This is an excellent machine but, until an ex-barista friend of ours showed us how to use it properly, we weren't at all successful. This is how we do it... (I've gone into lots of detail so it looks complicated but, after a couple of cups, it's really very straightforward.
