Summary: De'Longhi is the only brand I have bought for many years (back before bar pressure was available), never been disappointed. I once bought a different brand at 3 times the cost and it was not as good as my De'Longhi. I am very happy with this machine!!!
Summary: I bought this for my wife and it is really a good product. I make her a latte every morning and it's easy and fast with this machine. The directions that came with it are so so, but we looked at a couple of you tube videos and learned how to make perfect coffee
Summary: Have purchased a few espresso makers from amazon, but they all broke just after warranty and were never. Have always tried to stay under $200, which could be the reason. This one is the best I have had to date. Great product.
I'd never made an Espresso in my Life & I've Made 1 a Day for 2 Weeks, I think I'm a Pro!

Summary: This is a Beautifully made Machine that looks Incredible in My Kitchen! If you Read Up on the Operation, & you've never Used one before, It works very Well! I found going to UTube & Paying attention, helped to get the running of the System Down! Hardest Part is "The Buttons"!
Summary: This machine produces excellent coffee and rich frothing, better than much more expensive machines that I have owned in the past. If you enjoy drinking cappuccinos, this is the machine that, for its price and quality, I strongly recommend.
Excerpt: After reading many reviews and doing much homework, I ordered this. Many of the reviews I read were bad. I went with my gut and ordered it anyway. Love, love, love this espresso machine. So easy to use and clean. It takes both pods and ground coffee or espresso.
