Delonghi Espresso/Cappuccino Maker with patented “sempre crema” filter holder. Used with ground espresso, this unique filter mixes air into the brewing process to produce a perfect crema. Distinguished by its caramel color, the crema is the seesnce of authentic espresso.Savor a burst of true Italian flavor at home with this DeLonghi espresso and cappuccino maker. With a durable stainless-steel boiler, two thermostats (for water and steam), 35-ounce water reservoir (which removes for easy filling and cleaning), and two nozzles, this self-priming pump machine brews up single or double shots of espresso in just minutes. As for taste, the machine’s ‘sempre crema’ filter holder produces a perfect, caramel-colored crema, the essence of great espresso. Before brewing, a built-in tamper levels and presses the grounds before use; some practice is usually required to tamp at just the right pressure. After brewing, a lever on the filter holder flips up to hold the metal basket in place in order to knock out the used grounds. Three switches make the entire brewing process intuitive: on/off, espresso/water delivery, and steam: the machine preheats cups and filter holder with hot water and also froths milk for cappuccino using a swivel steamer and adjustable steam control knob. An “OK” light illuminates when the machine is fully heated and ready to go. A drip tray under the nozzles holds two espresso shot glasses or cups (not included), and removes for dishwasher cleaning. The machine measures 11-1/2 by 8-1/2 by 7-1/4 inches, and is covered by a one-year warranty against defects. –Ann Bieri

Excellent combination of low price + high quality When i read the opinions of the “experts” about the needed of heat exchanger espresso machines to obtain good espresso at home and see the price of this machines in the range of $600 to $1000, i think it hurts to spend this quantity of money in a machine for your home, then i asked to an Italian friend who owns a caffé near to my house about:

You’ll need a good grinder I owned the maker for a while. It’s far better than many of the Krups and other models typically for sale at department stores. If you want an espresso, you’ll need a pump machine. Many cheap machines will say “steam driven” or otherwise have “steam” in the title: what this means is that they lack a pump and merely use steam pressure to get now overly superheated water to flow through the fine espresso grinds. (By the way, “espresso” is, for all intents and purposes, a grind, not a roast…

great as long as it lasts I bought my Delonghi machine in August and as of yesterday it has died. While it was working I was quite happy though – great coffee latte. The only thing was that it was leaking through the steam wand and made a big mess on the counter but I took care of theat by moving the wand above the drip tray. I’m disappointed that it didn’t last longer. I’m upgrading to a Gaggia.One thing I learned: Don’t write reviews right after purchase and don’t trust reviews written right after purchase
