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...

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...
