Too Tight


It worked though, good result, but I just cant be exerting too much effort and break my shoulder. maybe, its one of the defective ones. Im returning today and will continue using my old expresso machine.

Price, good buy

Portafilter is too tight, I had to use my mortar to try to put it to the correct place, I still couldn't.

Espresso? Impresso!


I was happy that the brew cup was easily disassemblable for weekly cleaning. I don't usually use the frother, but it works OK after you drain the first few drops of condensate.

I found the DeLonghi EC155 easy to learn and use. I bought it on sale, and have been using it daily, for almost a year. It heats up fast, and makes a double espresso in about 30 seconds. The temperature is just right when dispensed into a ceramic...

Not really easy to clean, but luckily, there's not much to clean. Difficult to remove water inside unit (except for removable reservoir) when storing unit for a long time.

For those of you struggling to foam the milk perfectly, it does take 2-3 steam uses to properly foam and heat the milk. Always make sure to properly clean the unit after use and I preferably use filtered water over sink water to prevent long term...

The beginner's espresso maker. It does everything you would like it to do to make your best version of that latte, cappuccino, or mocha you had at your local starbucks or coffeeshops. As a starter, its a great unit to be able to foam milk for your...

Fast Frother!


It completely frothed the milk in less than a minute!

Pretty, small, efficient, fast

Hmm... nothing... but it could have come with a milk pitcher and two small coffee cups. :)

Bought this given the huge number of positive reviews. My experience was not good (mainly for the filter holder issue). Feel let down a bit. Might have had too high expectations.

Small device. Heats water fast. Creates good amount of steam. Would create a good froth I think. Generates good pressure.

Only two shots at a time. Very low clearance between outlet and base. Only shot glasses can fit in (unless you remove the base, then you have more room). The filter holder takes a ridiculous amount of force to put in place. Seriously, I need two hands...

I don't go to starbucks at all anymore


I recently started drinking americano mistos from starbucks and that prompted me to purchase this machine. I've had it for a little over a month now and I really enjoy it. I really have no idea what I'm doing but I like the taste of what I make. I cut...

I make my coffee at home now.

not enough room for larger cups steam valve a bit too short kinda noisy

great machine


Although I've only had my particular machine for a few days I've used this Delonghi model extensively at a friend's home. I got it because I knew what I was getting before I bought it. I think it makes the best tasking espressos out of the lower end...

- good crema - great tasting espressos - simple and easy to use - non-intrusive design - feels sturdy

- a little too loud for my liking - cheap tamper

Solid Machine for the Price


You have to periodically clean the machine. I have twice watched my espresso maker die a slow death until it would not pull a shot at all. After running a couple of cycles of "dezcal" through it, it's running like a champ again. Overall a good piece of...

This is a great machine for the money. If you use properly ground beans, it will create espresso that is better than most of the standard coffee shops. It's small so it doesn't have a big footprint in the kitchen.

It's small, so you really can only fit espresso cups under it.

I'll write another article on the DeLonghi in a few months to see if the espresso maker still holds up.

This is a winner for DeLonghi and also suggested by other well documented espresso groups. It s rated just below the Gaggia classic and that is saying alot especially for the low low price Newegg sells it for. Makes excellent E.S.E espresso from...

None so far. It is a great machine.

Get what you pay for...


After 5 years of using cheaper steam espresso makers my wife bought me this model for my birthday - a huge improvement over steam! After 13 months - 1 month out of warranty - the heating block gave out. I was so used to how this machine works, and was...

One of the cheapest pump driven makers. Frothing wand works pretty good once you master it's use.

Somewhat weak espresso. Durability? A bit on the noisy side, but not too bad.
