I have had two of these machines. Makes good espresso, but unreliable product. First machine blew up: internal short- circuit burned out the electrics. Second machine pump failed just outside warranty. No doubt the very expensive DeLonghis are reliable...

Good for one or two cups at a time, but no more

  (Rating Hidden)

I use this occasionally (although I'd expected to use it more) because the whole process is a bit long-winded. By the time I've set it up to make a cappuccini I find I drink the coffee pretty quickly and then have to clean the machine. It takes twice...

I previously had a very cheap (and cheerful) Russell Hobbs espresso machine which was a bit slow but otherwise good. Thought the De Longhi would be better. It was awful. To get enough coffee for two cappuccinos I had to fill the large holder twice to...

Good Flavour, Temperamental Machine

Purchased in December 2011. The machine produced a very rich, frothy coffee however our machine in particular seemed to be fairly faulty. The drip rate was inconsistent at best and non-existant at worst. We have now returned the machine and wait to see...

Nice value for money and pretty design

 

"Very nicely designed coffee maker. Good value for money. I haven't used the foaming function yet but the coffee tastes great and machine is very easy to use. The only thing to mention (I actually don't mind it but like it) is that that it doesn't stop...
