Summary: machine in new box with coffee Infuser jammed in and unable to operate sent to Delonghi for repair after some haggling we'll see how it works when it returns 2mos.now and Delonghi hasn:t returned
Summary: I wanted to upgrade my espresso machine & when it stopped working at Xmas I started looking. I couldn't believe it when I found this for the same price as machines that were much earlier models. It's bigger than I expected but I love it! I can't believe how easy it is to use & how fab the coffee is. I tend to warm my mug first but I think I only need to because the kitchen is so cold. My son was so impressed he bought one too.
Summary: I thought long and hard before spending this much on something to make coffee, but have not been disappointed. It makes lovely espressos and if you heat milk in the cup, then make a coffee straight into it a pretty good latte too. Have a play with different beans and strengths - well worth it to get your perfect cup.
Summary: After putting up with watery filter coffee for years I decided to invest in a bean to cup machine. The manual is a little scary but once you have sorted out what goes where, you can have excellent quality coffee at the push of a button. I was primarily a tea drinker but now I find myself drinking coffee most of the time. It's not cheap, but it will save you a fortune in Starbucks.
Great Coffee machine but silly manufacturing fault and poor quality control

Summary: De'Longhi Perfecta ESAM5400 15-Bar Bean To Cup Espresso/ Cappuccino Machine - Black This seems to be a great coffee machine apart from 1 weakness. The water tank on my first machine leaked from around the bottom of the float level indicator. It wasn't noticeable for the first few days apart from there seemed to be a lot of clean water collecting in the drip tray but I just put it down to the machine carrying out a self clean each time switched on and off.
