I don't write reviews but I am going to make an exception this time. I am not a geek, but I knew I was going to be spending a considerable amount of money for a coffee machine so I went into research mode. I have had several coffee machines in my life,...

De'Longhi Perfecta ESAM5500 Bean To Cup Coffee Machine

 

Very flexible and easily programmable to personal taste. Espresso is v good from beans, Capuccino pretty good too but I just make a good long cup of espresso and add full cream milk and re-heat in microwave for an excellent cafe-au-lait. This saves...

You need to programme it for best results otherwise standard delivery is so-so but that depends on how you like your coffee of course.

De'Longhi Perfecta ESAM5500 Bean To Cup Coffee Machine

 

Excellent coffee

Poor quality design

 

. At first, I thought that it was a bad micro switch of both the service door and ground coffee container so I had them replaced but the issue still remained. It was such a frustration just to install new micro switches because whenever the right wires...

Real coffee taste

 

Was given a second hand unit as a gift as original owner now uses pods. Takes a while to find what brand of beans you like best but with a bit of experimentation a good cup of coffee can be obtained. After reading reports of luke warm drinks I was...

Terrible Repair history... 2 months and still waiting...

 

Diffuser has to be replaced again, the machine gets a lot of use, and i can understand it is not a commercial grade machine. We dropped the machine off early Feb 2015 to have the front door & diffuser replaced ($260) it is now April and I still don't...
