Summary: My original DeLonghi worked for several years ok but the replacements I ordered both leaked and now I have none. I believe there is a design problem with the plumbing to the heat coil interface and it's very hard to repair.
Excerpt: I bought the Delonghi EC270 15-Bar Pump Espresso Machine as a gift to myself. My husband thought I was crazy for paying such a high price for an Espresso Machine, but I love Espresso! When it first arrived i was so excited and started right away.
Excerpt: I ordered the DeLonghi EC270 15-Bar-Pump Espresso Machine online about 8 months ago. After receiving it I tried it right away. I have owned many coffee machines and espresso machines because I like trying new products and giving them a shot. I like how easy this espresso machine is to put together.
Summary: This Delonghi coffee machine has a very weak pump. I use it everyday only for 1 espresso every morning and I have been obliged to change the pump after 1 year of use after fighting with Delonghi that didn't want to change it for free because the warranty was over (it was the 13th month).
