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!

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: 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.

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.
Summary: I have had the EC152 for 2 months now. I am working my way towards a great espresso coffee experience at home, and the EC152 was my first step. I researched a lot before selecting it, and I must say I have not been disappointed.
Summary: My wife bought this for me for Xmas and I couldn't be more pleased. I drink a lot of coffee at professional coffee shops and I think that the coffee from this machine is right up there with the stuff I buy at Costa etc. You get a good strong espresso with an amazing crema.
Summary: We think this little coffee machine is amazing. It is compact and easy to use and extremely good value for money. There is nothing cheap about it mind!! I would recomend it to anyone wanting to make decent coffee at home.
Summary: I make coffees at work in a restaurant, and if i do say so myself - i'm very good. I love it, have been accused of being obsessed, and contracted to create a training manual for it. So you understand, to own a coffee machine at home has been something i have wanted very much for a few years now.
