Just received this new DeLonghi espresso machine. It is wonderful. Easy to use and the espresso tastes delicious! Great product!

This small poppy make a job.
As retired R&D professional I made side by side test for this poppy and Sirena (Starbucks designed by BMW espresso machine, $500). DeLonghi looks much less professional not so convenient and more primitive (sure, it cost five times less). But it makes espresso and cappuccino “testier”, richer.

Good for the price!

We just got our first cups of nice espresso and capuchinno on this machine. You have to follow the instructions TO THE LETTER, so it needs to warm up, you need warm cups, and DEFINITELY need to tamp down the coffee into the filter. The unit is made of plastic, so don't expect a sturdy, heavy weight. It does the trick if you are careful with it. Make sure to hold the unit down when using the tamping device, as you need some pressure to compact the coffee, and just pressing up with the filter without holding the whole machine will not be enough to get a good, even layer of coffee for the pressurized steaming water to flow through. This is the key to good espresso. Nice crema on both coffees, but we decided to do one cup at a time, instead of using the double spout. YOU control the amount of coffee going into your cup, so be careful to pour just enough for the 1.5 ounces needed in a good espresso. Pour more and you end up with regular coffee, not the strong, aromatic, crema rich espresso. The frother worked also as expected, and we did a "steam cleaning" by allowing steam out into an empty cup prior to using it to froth the milk container. We used 2% fat skim milk and it came out very nice and fluffy, with plenty of thickness. Be careful also to not use to much milk. The instructions indicate 3.5 ounces, but I would recommend 3.0 ounces as the optimum amount. Be sure to have a frothing container shallow enough to let the tip of the frothing spout to touch the surface of the milk, and wide enough to allow the frothed milk to expand without spilling.

Good value for the price
We have had some issues getting good crema on this machine. We are using freshly ground beans from wholefoods, so we are unsure whether it is the coffee, machine or the barista! Don't like the plastic frother on this, but can get around it by purchasing a 6mm stainless steel tip. Other than the above dislikes, it performs as it should, and is good value for the price.

This unit doesn't make enought espresso for my large iced latte. I have to do it 2x for a strong coffee
I am probably going to be returning this item. Not that great of flavor for the $100 ticket price. If you are not there watching the coffee going into the cup the vibrations will make the cup go off the tray.
