Summary: it was a bit more difficult as it looks, but then again, we are old, and don't know, most likely, how to work it well and efficiently. We will give it away,but the espresso was ok, the trouble was for us the cappuchino. It certainly is pretty.
Summary: Initial review two weeks in: Wonderful machine, especially considering the price! I use mine about 3x daily. It produces a great crema and the frother/steamer works very well.

Excerpt: I absolutely love how the Delonghi coffee machine looks out on the work top, definitely an eye catching design as well as a practical piece of kit. Disassembly / taking parts apart for cleaning is intuitive.
