Excerpt: What a great device. My coffee has never tasted this good! The machine is a little large, and since they recommend not putting it next to a stove or sink, it took me some time to find an appropriate place for it in my kitchen. But I am very pleased with my purchase.
Excerpt: The DeLonghi Compact Automatic Cappuccino, Latte and Espresso Machine is a must have appliance for any household. I bought this model because the black and silver look of it matched the rest of my kitchen appliances. My boyfriend is an avid coffee drinker and enjoys a good latte so I decided to buy this and impress him with my brewing skills.I am not a fabulous coffee brewer but with this machine no one needs to know.
Excerpt: I make rich,premium tasting coffee with this even without having high quality coffee or purified water.I use tap water and cheap coffee and it tastes the same as Starbucks.The flavor is the fullest I have ever gotten from making coffee at home.It is because of the method used to brew the coffee.Letting the water gradually saturate the coffee instead of dripping it quickly.I have never seen this method before,but it obviously works the best.My favorite thing to make is...
This has completely replaced my trips to Starbucks!

Excerpt: We just got this machine a few weeks ago, and we LOVE it! We already have a Keurig for regular brewed coffee, but I found that I was still making trips to Starbucks 3-4 times per week for lattes and cappuccinos. When my husband suggested we get a machine to make specialty coffees, I was skeptical that we could find one that would make coffees as high-quality as the ones I was purchasing at the coffee shop. But we did!
Summary: Excellent - easy to use, great coffee (once you have found your favourite beans), easy to clean. I found it much cheaper on-line than in the shops. I am using Lavazza Red Espresso beans and getting a very good result. Hugely cheaper to own than Nespresso.
