Great machine, but what's up with the pods

 

This is my third DeLonghi espresso machine over a period of about ten years. I work at home, so my espresso machines get a workout. I've had this one for about a week now, and have been totally satisfied thus far. This makes the best espresso and latté...

Great espresso, thick crema, beautiful to look at. Best machine I have ever owned.

Confusing instruction manual, useless "pod" holder for people who don't know how to scoop coffee.

DeLonghi Bar 32

 

No problems with box, bottom didn't open up accidently. No leaking from water basin. Delivery was a day ahead of schedule and everything that was suppose to be in the box, was.

I made my first cuppuccino this morning and WOW!!! I will be enjoying the DeLonghi Bar 32 for many years to come

None, completely happy with it

Nice looking pot, Easy to Use, But!

 

Should have a shutoff feature when someone pulls pot (for people who can't wait) during brewing time.

Large Pot ; Stylish

Coffee Doesn't Stay Hot ; Limited Features ; Long Brew Time

Easy to use.

 

I got a real bargain on this at NewEgg, and received it promptly.

My first espresso maker. It's easy to use & clean. Just take a little time to understand what it takes to make a good cup. Selecting the proper grind, tamp, machine pre-heat, and run time are all you need. Search on Espresso Guy for a good guide to...

None

Inconsistent but pretty good

 

Have been using Italian ESE pods only, and from pod to pod of the same type, the crema hasn't been consistant. Flavor usually excellent though. Will experiment with running water shots thru first - maybe temp with the pods is even more touchy. Have...

Easy to use, sometimes an excellent crema

Frother gets in the way, moves 'back' to an annoying place. Crema has been inconsistent (considered sending it back, but wasn't sure if it was the machine or the pods.) Portafilter when using any pod is pretty darn snug. Really have to get a grip to...

Great little machine

 

Don't need a cup warmer being I do shots. So I do not miss the fact it does not have one. Grounds cake is also hard to remove. That 15 bars really packs them in.

Been making perfect cremas since day one. I have not messed up a shot yet. I add 1 tsp of sugar to the bottom of the shot, then filler up. Perfect. For the money this thing can't be beat. I fill it up from the back. I never remove the water holder

The frother gets in my way. I move it out of the way, but it slowly moves back. I do not use it. Not my style either

I use Lavazza Crema e Aroma coffee beans that I buy online. Nice crema, taste and aroma.

Have been using this for 6 months. Very happy with it. Low maintenance, easy to use. So far only had to clean the check-valve once. Easy to do. This only has to be done when flow slows down ; Have owned anything from a full blown commercial unit to...

None so far

better than you could expect

 

you will love this machine according to your patience

great espresso

takes a long time to heat

Consumer review by:

Best machine for the price. Crema galore!

 

Here's a big tip: the green "OK" light only means the coffee is ready to begin -- it doesn't mean it's ready to brew a full cup quite yet. For the strongest pull, you need to wait for the water to heat a few minutes longer (some folks wait up to 15-20...

If you're coming from a department store steam espresso maker like I was, this thing is going to blow your mind. Obviously it doesn't compete with thousand-dollar-plus commercial machines, but only deluded snobs would make that comparison. Very simply,...

People wanting to switch from steam (or drip) should know beforehand that you're just not going to get the same volume of drink as you did with that Mr. Coffee. Of course, this fact just comes with the espresso territory ; That said: the pump lets you...

Great

 

Pump is the way to go

Great Deal for a great machine

none that we have found so far. Besides that lack of espresso cups and milk container that most come with
