Parts missing.....

Debbie, Amazon
17 April 2014
  • Summary: The machine came in the original box but you can't make espresso without the 3 filter pieces. Hoping everything works after the $22.00 additional cost of parts are delivered.

Awesome machine

  • Summary: I've had this machine for many, many years. It's one of my most prized possessions and still works fantastically. I have used it almost every single day since I bought it and have never had a single issue.

Basic model with basic performance.

  • Excerpt: This espresso machine is pretty basic - you can pull a shot and froth some milk. But it does perform those functions pretty well. There is always a trick to doing espresso in any machine, and each machine is a little different, so once you get used to this one, you shouldn't have any real problems.

Good for the money

J. Zabolotney, Amazon
19 March 2011
  • Summary: You get what you pay for. The machine does have a 1100w single boiler and 15 bar pump. It is plastic but seems built sturdily enough. The brew group is also very sturdy with a heavy construction design. It is a small machine so it tends to vibrate quite a bit when in use.

Plan to use a pound of beans to figure out your mojo

S. J. Becker, Amazon
4 March 2011
  • Summary: I read a review on this machine from a buyer who loved the machine, but warned that you should plan to go through about a pound of coffee beans until you figure out the combination of pre-heating/fineness of grind/amount of coffee/tamping pressure/etc... that results in your preferred magic.

You don't need to pay a lot to make a great espresso

Phorapples, Viewpoints
6 October 2010
  • Excerpt: The Delonghi Espresso/Cappuccino maker is one of the absolute best espresso makers I've ever had. I've had mine for years while I've seen other people go through two or three units. Mine just keeps pulling one great shot after another.

Good Little Machine

Texas Mom "Texas Mom", Amazon
21 March 2010
  • Summary: I've had this machine for a couple months - wanted to get comfortable with it before writing a review. Overall, I'm very satisfied. My only qualm is that I have to turn off and run the milk steamer about four or five times before it heats my milk to 160 degrees.

AVOID THIS MACHINE!

Jeff Moco "NYmagical", Amazon
18 February 2010
  • Summary: I got this product at a ridiculously cheap price, so I thought I might as well try it since I had had an inexpensive Krups machine years ago and was pretty impressed with it at the time.

Review from Italian user (born and raised in Italy)

Alex B "Alex B", Amazon
18 September 2009
  • Summary: Although the latest trend in Italy is oriented to the fully automated computerized espresso makers (EVERYBODY needs to have one in Italy) I really didn't want to spend well over $ 1,000 for a coffee maker (call me cheap, but with a thousand dollars, plus the money you need to add for a good coffee...
