Still a great machine

G. Reon, Amazon
2 July 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this machine as a replacement for another DeLonghi espresso maker (which is 5 years old and still works great! and my sister now loves it). The packaging it comes in is first rate and the machine arrived in perfect condition.

perfect

Josh, Amazon

  • Summary: Previous setup: I used to use a Rancilio Rocky grinder and a Lelit Espresso machine. Making me and my girlfriend a latte with 2 shots in each cup and frothing milk was very time consuming and messy. The Rancilio Rocky grinder spit grounds out side of the portafilter.

  • Summary: My only 2 complaints, after owning this for about 2 year it is too easy to overdose on caffeine. The other is over time it seems easy for coffee grounds find there way at the bottom of the unit.

Constantly broken due to o-ring

Larry Conly, Amazon
25 November 2012
  • Summary: Frothing attachment o-ring wears out after only a few dozen uses, and it costs $3 + $7 shipping to replace each time. I'd highly recommend avoiding this overpriced and poorly designed machine in favor of the more more economical and functional Saeco machines!

I Love It! But Time Will Tell?

Watchdog507, Amazon
25 November 2012
  • Summary: I spent a considerable time checking reviews on Super Automatic Espresso Machines. They all seem to have issues. Agree or not, when I did a shortlist the ESAM 5500 came out in front. So when I got my annual rebate check from a Big Box retailer recently, I decided to buy this machine.

Great and few problems

Ken, Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: My wife and I have been making 6-8 cups a day for 6 months. We only ever make cappuccino and the 'fire and forget' button is priceless. The froth is good albeit with slightly larger bubbles than from conventional froth.

Good coffee machine, but horrible customer service

Sinisa Trajkovic, Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: So my machine would not recognize the water spout and would not dispense water intermittently. You'd have to re-insert the water spout repedeatly and it would eventually be recognized. I decided to take it to service (under warranty). That was 4 months ago. Still don't have it back.

perfecta review

Jonathan W. Hallman, Amazon
23 November 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this baby about six months ago and have already brewed 2,000 cups of cappuccino. I have settled on Illy beans and it is a real luxury to wake up, press one button, and have such a tasty treat. It does not create true coffee-house foam but it is close enough.

Love the Perfecta

Denise H., Amazon
23 November 2012
  • Summary: Our little Delonghi EC155 espresso machine sprung leaks after two years of heavy use and constantly being on (it stayed on all day long and some nights). Since my husband had become such a fan of espresso over the past two years, instead of replacing it with the same simple model type we thought we...

Good and not so good

TNutt, Amazon
22 November 2012
  • Summary: The Good - This espresso machine is very easy to use but can be intimidating at first. My husband and I use it several times a day and we have had no problems with it since we bought it at least 6 months ago. The Bad - It doesn't make a hot cup of coffee. It makes a warm cup of coffee.
