Summary: awesome machine - only complaint is coffee / espresso doesn't get as hot as i'd prefer - really top notch construction. beautiful machine. conical burr grinder works well and efficiently. Nice yummy crema. Milk drinks served really efficiently with froth or steam and the feature that milk container can be taken easily removed and placed in fridge is very nice. Easy machine to clean.
Summary: it is perfectly fit for my purpose as I am only need one cut at a time, you can make your own amount of coffee, cappuccino, latte and quickly hot mike, clean up is easy too. Energy saving also add hi-light to the machine.
Summary: I was concerned by some of the negative reviews about this machine however I had no need to worry. Easy to use and set up make great tasting hot coffee, the milk system is first class delivering a perfect cappuccino or latte. Just make sure you use a quality freshly roasted coffee and you will love the result. Why not 5 stars?
Summary: Machine arrived on time and was well packaged. Makes excellent coffee of all types and can be programmed to give the strength and quantity to suit taste and cup sizes. Automatic switch on really useful to have the machine warmed up and ready to go when you get up. Easy to fill up/empty and prompts user when it is time to clean, descale etc. Did a lot of research before buying this machine and glad that I made this choice.
Summary: All excellent. I read a few comments about this item with one person giving it a low rating and be honest they are petty and dont know what they are talking about. I have upgraded from a gaggia brero and this machine beats it in every way. Coffee lovers will not be dissapointed with this item it is fantastic. You have to do a little setting up when you first get it but after that is great.
Summary: The De'Longhi Prima Donna Avant ESAM6700 arrived this morning and I love it. I'm wired from all the coffee, but it had to be done. The build of the machine is very solid and what you'd expect in a restaurant. Very hard wearing stainless steel - everything feels well made. I was initially disappointed by the temperature of the Latte but then made a Cappuccino (which is very similar) and that is very hot - I am very fussy about hot coffee.
Summary: cannot heat the milk it does not come out hot enough it makes the coffee cool down complained got nowhere for paying over £900 pound and to be told nothing they can do heat the cup with hot water cannot sent it back as there is no fault in it i think the makers could have been a bit more helpfull
Summary: I don't usually write product reviews but this product costs a lot of money and so it may help to read about users experiences. It was quite a decision to spend this much on a machine to replace an old and much used previous DeLonghi bean to cup machine. My experience with the previous machine, and with De Longhi customer service when I had a problem early on, encouraged me to look for another De Longhi. This machine does not disappoint.
