Summary: This machine worked just as promised. Good coffee, delivered quickly and with a minimum of fuss. If I have a criticism it is that the long coffees could be delivered a little hotter and that the water reservoir could be a little larger. This is the best of three espresso machines that I have had and certainly represents good value for money.
Summary: I have waited to post a review for a month as I was trying to perfect my coffee-making skills. I have now succeeded and am able to recommend this machine to anyone who wants excellent coffee in quick time.
Summary: Very elegant machine with conveniently small footprint. Take time to set up the machine to your liking and you won't be disappointed. I suggest keeping a receptacle permanently under the flow pipes to catch the purged water. A stainless steel jug matches very well. Thoroughly recommended.
Summary: Had Delongi ESAM04 bean to coffee machine under extended warranty cover, after 2.5 years the machine developed internal problems which were not able to be resolved, and John Lewis replaced the machine with a like for like specification unit.
