Summary: The best gets better. I can't believe this is already upstaged by a newer model. I'm glad it got a sort of gimbaled stream and water spout. I wish the warranty was less conspicuous on the side of the machine (a piece of tape saying do no remove).
Summary: Ahhhh just me and my Longhi in the early morning dawn. Truely a great machine and the coffee..... well for the sake of common ground it will send the "mermaid" squiring back out to sea. Fun to use and easy to clean.
Summary: I had read some reviews on this machine and was a little hesitant to purchase it based on some of the reviews by folks that were not able to get it to work like they wanted. After making some espresso and some cappuccino with it now, I have to say, this is a very good machine and easy to use.
Summary: I ordered this machine off amazon.com after reading the very positive reviews on-line about it. The best part was that amazon had it available for just $72 plus shipping (for a refurbished machine).
Summary: I have used my machine now for nearly 2 years. Its been 100% reliable. The coffee is simply superb, and I often show off to my friends my home taught Barista skills. Useful things to note the unit is very noisy and vibrates when pumping water through the coffee grounds. This is totally normal.
Summary: I purchased this machine after lots of research. I have had a cheaper version of this type of machine a couple of years ago and the milk frother was rubbish, not a problem with this great little machine! It froths milk beautifully. I love the froth so pile loads on top of my coffee.
Summary: Bought this to replace my previous De longhi coffee maker, they've obviously been busy in the last few years as this is a big improvement over the last one which I thought was pretty good. The EC330s heats up quickly, is much quieter than the old one, and above all makes excellent coffee!
Summary: I have had mine for 2 months now and I must say that I've perfected making a Latte, using my Costa ground coffee and skimmed milk. The only downside is the steamer isn't quite powerful enough to make a medium Latte or two small ones at once.
