RUN AWAY FROM THIS MACHINE! Buy something, anything, else instead...

Summary: This is a truly terrible unit. If you're reading this now, you should run far, far away from this machine. I'd love to give a full review of this unit but I cant--because the one I received was DOA. When I called DeLonghi support, I immediately knew that I would never, ever, ever, purchase anything from this company again--or should I say AFTER I waited on hold for an hour to speak to an unhelpful, rude support rep that apparently had no concept of the fact that as the...
Summary: If you are looking for a super-automatic, this is an excellent choice. I has all the features you desire in a machine; multiple single-touch drinks, cup warmer, intuitive UI, etc. but yet is quite affordable. The one downside is that it is quite difficult to program the machine to create a perfect macchiato - dispensing such a little amount of milk is impossible given the mechanics of the frothing device.
Summary: We have been after a bean to cup coffee maker for about 8 months especially this brand and make. Great product takes a bit go getting used to, but we love it especially that you can do the milk also.
De'Longhi Perfecta ESAM5600 Graphic Touch Bean To Cup Machine - Great piece of kit

Summary: We have always been coffee lovers and the time arrived to splash out on our own bean to cup machine. Friends rave about these but to be honest I've always thought - How Much. Anyway, the order was placed and arrived in the usual efficient way by Amazon and all the while I'm thinking "is this going to be too complicated to use" Well, for anyone unsure all I would say is - place your order today.
Summary: Used to use a 'proper' coffee machine. A lovely Italian job with a portafilter. Was very dubious about this product. Don't know why, probably an element of coffee snobbery. Don't know why. This machine delivers an espresso as good as I've tasted. A great crema and a great temperature. Brilliant.
Summary: bought this machine as we thought it would be nice,wrong took it out the box turned it on,done everything we should do to start it up,the infuser then got stuck and it snapped something inside,which by the way is all made of plastic,we are now waiting for it to be picked up,not happy at all,not worth the money
Summary: I totally LOVE this coffee machine! We have been using daily for last 6 months and it makes the best coffee, consistently. It looked as if it might be daunting to use at first but not so; once set up (which wasn't difficult, just follow the manual), it's a doddle to use and fast. Cleaning and descaling isn't a problem either - we have hard water and it tells you when to descale. Would wholeheartedly recommend it - worth every penny.
