DeLonghi ESAM5500B Perfecta Digital Super Automatic Espresso Machine – Five Stars

I bought this for my husband as a christmas gift several years ago. Let me say that this has turned into our favorite investment. And i say this because of the high cost of the machine. We have not had any trouble with it— nothing and we use it almost daily.

It can made the coffee more hot but it is what it is.

Made our first cappuccinos this morning, and they were great. Machine is about as automatic as you can get. Our only concern is — can we stop making and drinking the cappuccinos and lattes.

I have no complaints about that. Taste is relative, so i can understand how some may like it less than others, but i have no complaints about the coffee. The frothed milk is perfect, the coffee tastes just like it should. We use it every day, and we all but stopped buying any coffee from espresso stands. I updated this review to 3 stars in fairness for just how much we actually enjoy using this unit. However, i’ll leave the terrible experience we had with the customer support below for reference. I think there should be more to a great product that it’s nominal performance. Quality is also defined by reliability and customer service. Delonghi boasts striving for excellence, but they fail miserably.

I purchased this machine as a replacement for another delonghi espresso maker (which is 5 years old and still works great. And my sister now loves it). The packaging it comes in is first rate and the machine arrived in perfect condition. I only make espresso with it so i can’t dispute the claims of others talking about lukewarm milk in their latte and cappuccino. My experience with the espresso is that the delonghi machines still make a great cup of espresso, no matter what your taste. I experimented with the settings until it made the cup i was looking for (double-shot, extra strong). Obviously the beans you choose have a big effect on the taste of your espresso. I have only had the machine for a couple of months so i can’t testify to it’s longevity, but hopefully it lasts as long as my previous machine. No problems cleaning or leaking so far.

I don’t know how long we’ve had this model, maybe upwards of 15 years. It’s a member of the family, as much as an inanimate object can be, anyway. It enhances your life and does so much to make you happy, that you are happy to give it the care that it demands lol. So, here’s what i’ve come to expect with the machine: it dies every two years. It was purchased at williams & sonoma with their lifetime guarantee. So for the first couple two-year cycles, i was able to just take it back and exchange it. Finally, they told me i had gotten my last exchange, and marked the receipt likewise. They had been pretty decent about it up til then. So i went the warrantee route (that particular exchange still had a few months left on the two-year warranty. ) delonghi sent me a box and directions where to send it. The repair people were, anyway.

  • Makes excellent coffee, but take poor customer service into account when considering this unit.
  • Our Favorite appliance!
  • *** 5-Star Customer service *** Delonghi fan for life ***

Our second delonghi and we love it as much as the first. Extremely easy to use and cleanup is simple. The wife and kids absolutely love the ease of the cappuccino maker and i like the detachable milk container that makes that possible. My only request would be the ability to change a strength or size setting after the start button is pushed. With the older model rotary dials that was possible. With the electronic it is not. It just means i have to pay more attention when getting my cup after someone else has gotten theirs.

I have had my machine for almost 5 years, and considering the other reviews, i consider myself lucky that it is lasting as long as it is. The machine makes decent coffee, heavy on the caffeine, but as mentioned in other reviews, it is not hot enough. The milk frother isn’t worth much as the milk is barely frothed and is very inconsistent; some days the frother works, some days it doesn’t, even though my milk (whole) always comes straight from the refrigerator. To battle this after 4 years, i bought a $100 nestle aeroccino which makes lovely froth for a real cappuccino. I cannot speak for the latte milk setting as i have never used it. As for everyday use, i find the machine finicky; error messages (including cleaning messages) will pop up mid-cycle, and the machine will not resume where it was in the cycle, i will have to start the drink over. Cleaning is relatively easy, but it must be done by hand. I used to stick the milk container (bottom only) in the dishwasher, but it warped, and i was forced to buy a new expensive container. I have also had the machine spout coffee through the bottom, but this problem was easily fixed with a shop-vac. All in all, the coffee is decent, but not worth the price of the machine.

I have one now here in the us and one in my home in germany. Makes you miss starbucks a little less.

My wife and i both work from home and love good coffee. We drink many coffees throughout the entire day from 5am until about 5pm. And the delongi perfecta is great. It delivers a consistent coffee every time it’s a great home, entry-level espresso machine. It is not a professional espresso machine that you see for $5k+ but for the price it’s perfect. We have had ours for about 6 years and have had no major issues. Standard servicing every 3rd year but that is to be expected.

Best purchase in a long time.

The best espresso machine i ever had, i had three regular espresso machines the past 20 years, i never had the quality of the coffee drink like i got from the delonghi esam55oob, i am very happy i bought it, totally recommend it.

I just love pressing a button and having a perfect cup of latte every time. I’ve read mixed reviews of this machine, but no complaints from me.

Works great use lavazza super cremation beans like being in italy.

Yes, my niece bought a nesspresso machine and says it is great. I am sure it is if you want to buy little pouches of coffee juice to make your shot every morning. The delonghi awesome takes the beans of your choice, your milk, and does all the work to make you a cappuccino, cafelatte, or espresso. For every 10 drinks or so, you do need to empty the grounds container, add water, add some beans. Between milk based drinks you should push the clean button for a few seconds (oh my, work, work, work). The one and only thing else that would improve it for my wife is to make the milk a touch hotter.

The best automatic expresso machine we have ever purchased. This is our third delonghi product and by far the best.

Expensive but actually saves money vs coffee shop. It should pay for itself in a year if you enjoy great coffee often. We caught a good deal on this and have been happy. We have had it 6 months now and put through 300 cappuccinos according to the statistics recorded by the machine. The machine easy to use and no issues so far. We use distilled water to avoid descaling which can be expensive if using their solution. We use glass coffee cups with wire like handles that we bought online and it is nice to see the cappuccino as it swirls in the cup and to see its different layers of milk, foam and coffee. Use whole coffee beans made for espresso for best taste. Know that a latte is more milk than foam and vise versa for a cappuccino. And also know that a macchiato is just hot milk with just enough coffee to leave a mark (‘marked milk’ hence the name) on top of the milk. The name cappuccino is an italian reference to a monks cap, or hat. Buy some shakers for cinnamon, cocoa etc. Know that nutmeg isn’t too good for cappuccinos as it it bitter and kills the foam. Use it for spiced drinks or maybe chocolate drinks.

Easily prepares latte and cappuccino with the patented “Single Touch” hot milk system.

Great espresso and love the milk management system.

I own 2 delonghi super automatics this one being our most recent. I make 6 or more espresso drinks per day on our house sometimes more. Two weeks ago the grinder broke or jammed don’t know. I contacted delonghi service who sent a white gloves padded shipping box and label right away. I mailed it fedex to the dallas service center unsure when i’d ever see it again. Today i was shocked to get a call from the delivery guy that my beloved espresso machine was left on my porch. Everything works great, problem solved. I know super automatics can be finicky and i’ve heard horror stories. Thankfully i didn’t have to experience one. Thank you delonghiotherwise for those looking we love this machine. Espressos and tall coffees are at the ready.

For the first 9 months life was good. Get up in the morning, press a button, and instant cappuccino. Then the milk frother started acting up. Not as foamy, not a steady stream, etc. Called delonghi, and customer service was great. We talked through the issues, and they determined it must be a problem with the foamer lid mechanics. ‘we’ll send you out a whole new lid’ they said. Awesome customer service, which it should be since it was so expensive, and less than a year old (considering the 2 year warranty). Well, 2 months later, and 3 phone calls later with lots of promises, still no foamer top.

Even ‘not coffee’ drinkers appreciate the taste.

Love the functionality and features, this is my third delonghi automatic, but after 6 weeks, the front door pops open by itself after turn-on, which stops it from making coffee, so i have to repeatedly close the door manually. Apparently, the internal mechanical tolerances are too tight.

I love this machine it is well worth the money. It is very easy to use and i get coffee that is like the coffee shop. This machine does both ground and beans. With the ground coffee you add it when you make it. With the beans their is a place to fill it up and you can use it over and over. The frothing milk is wonderful.

Easy-to-use digital control panel with programmable menu settings: adjust start time, auto off, clock, temperature, coffee strength

I’ve had my machine for approximately 2 weeks now, and so far i love it. It’s replacing my keurig rivo machine because i don’t want a pod system anymore, and i want a milk frother. This machine was easy to set up, and it’s easy to use. I haven’t changed any of the factory default settings for temperature or anything else yet, but i plan on doing so in the near future. I would like to change the water temperature, which is an available feature. I love the separate milk reservoir that cleans itself and can be kept in the fridge. The only thing it’s missing is a separate function for frothed milk only. Sometimes i like to add more frothed milk, but you can only do it while adding more coffee at the same time. But that is the only thing i’ve found so far that i don’t like. Overall great machine and i highly recommend it.

Grinds beans instantly for the freshest espresso with the patented “Direct-to-Brew” system.

No waiting between preparing espresso and cappuccino with the double boiler system.

DeLonghi ECAM23210SB Super Automatic Coffee Machine – Professional Results at Home

I’ve spent the last few weeks getting to know this coffee maker and i’m extremely pleased. This being my first de’longhi, there was a learning curve. You have four options for setting this up (likely unnecessary if you are already accustomed to their machines). There’s a quick start guide, a full manual, an included dvd, and a call center. I started with the quick start guide, but moved on to the full manual. Initial set up is easy and intuitive. The water tank is easily removed, filled, and replaced and it includes a water filter as well. Using just the quick start guide, i quickly made my first cup of coffee, but had some difficulty understanding how to set the length and how to increase the heat of the coffee. However, using the included manual, i was able to customize it until i got the perfect cup. Note that you can program the machine to a specific strength and length of coffee using the ‘my cup’ function.

This is a wonderful machine. Makes the best cup of coffee i have ever had.

We have been long time french press users. This guy has changed our mornings significantly. Instead of the boil, grind, pour and rest routine i press a button at it’s done. That is what i originally thought when receiving this. The positives are that it foams milk very well and you don’t have to be a barista to make velvet foam. It also has an excellent layer of crema on every pour. You can program it to you pour preference. I have significant experience with another fully automated system that we use at work. It is made by a different italian company and uses a carafe for milk. It has much larger reservoirs for water, and grounds. Here are the specifications for the DeLonghi ECAM23210SB Super Automatic Coffee Machine:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 15 bars of pressure
  • Stainless steel conical burr grinder
  • Height adjustable coffee spout to accommodate different sizes of cups
  • MAINTENANCE: De’Longhi machines require half the cleaning time of other brands, unlike competitor machines, which require chemical cleaning tablets monthly.
  • Hot Water Spout to be used for Tea or Hot Chocolate
  • Utilize De’Longhi’s specialized call center for help in setting up and maintaining your machine at 866-528-8323 (LatteBest)

Great product, makes delicious coffeefast delivery.

This espresso machine doesn’t feel like a cheap coffee maker, but it feels overly complex and expensive for the simple task of making a hot caffeinated beverage in the morning. For years, i’ve used nothing but a stainless french press and a hot water kettle to make my morning coffee. It takes about 5-10 minutes to prepare, and about 5 minutes to clean. This delonghi, as compact and automatic as it is, requires a steep learning curve for someone who has never used such a device. There are two instruction manuals, one of which is like a quick start guide, and the other doesn’t make a lot of sense until i read it over and over again. I’m an engineer, and feel this espresso machine is overkill unless you absolutely need espresso instead of regular coffee. Being a coffee drinker, i wasn’t aware that the serving size of espresso is only a few ounces compared to 1-2 mugs. Because i didn’t have coffee beans at the time, i used pre-ground coffee. The instructions stated to only use 1 scoop per cup. So i poured it into the top funnel and followed the procedures and ended up with (to me) a shot glass sized serving of well infused espresso (even had a lot of foam on the top).

Reviews from purchasers :

  • I would buy it again
  • GREAT coffee maker
  • This is a wonderful machine. Makes the best cup of coffee I

I love good coffee and frequently drink espresso (and espresso based beverages), but have never owned my own espresso maker before. This was my first foray into being my own barista, and what can i say?. The short and sweet version is that this machine makes excellent espresso that is neither too astringent nor too bland. I didn’t find the device difficult to setup or use. The ‘quick guide’ provided along with a far more detailed manual had me up and running in about 10 minutes. The machine turns on and is ready to brew steaming-hot espresso in about 60 seconds. What takes a bit longer is learning all of the various settings. These include the fineness of the grind of the beans, how long the ‘pull’ is for the espresso (more or less coffee volume), and the water temperature. Once you have things set up the way you like, you don’t have to keep going back and making changes–the machine remembers your last used setting.

We’ve been using this daily for several months without any big complaints. I wish beans fed into the grinder better. I have to stand there and poke them in with the tool they give you. Hopefully that extend the life of the product.

Although this high-end luxury cappuccino/espresso/cocoa/tea machine won’t replace my 12-cup coffeemaker for a crowd, it’s not meant to. I did a bit of investigating and i agree that although you have to keep the instruction manual handy, this is less intimidating to operate than many similar machines (for example, jura brands). The test coffee i brewed was full-bodied, blue bottle, similar to blue bottle coffee – three africans blend (whole beans coffee), 8 oz. A little too strong because i set it to the #5 or highest strength of bean. The built-in coffee grinder (hallelujah, so civilized) squeezes the maximum jolt from the beans. I also tried the milk froth setting after watching a few barista videos online from whole latte love and steve the coffee geek. The frothy milk was perfect for cappuccinos/lattes and hot cocoa from williams-sonoma. The froth wand is a bit too short and unwieldy, so you have to dip it way down in the milk and fiddle with it to get the correct setting. However, with such a powerhouse compact machine, this is a minor gripe and just a caution.

The last time i checked, the market was literally flooded with automatic coffee machines and expresso makers from every price point. Models with bells and whistles ranging from the basic functions, to starting your car (i jest). The one thing they all have in common is that they make coffee (some extremely better than others). I bet dollars to donuts you’re probably asking yourself right about now “so why should i spend $1000 on a coffee maker, when i can get a mr. Coffee at wally mart for $15 bucks?. And my answer to that is you shouldn’t because you’re clearly not the intended market delonghi wants to sell their products to. The delonghi ecam23210sb is for those who appreciate, style, simplicity quality workmanship convenience, and class. To put my context into marketable terminology i would say, if apple were going to make an expresso/coffee maker, i would imagine it would look and function very much like this. Not only does this machine make a killer cup of ‘joe’, it also makes a mean cup of expresso that will put any milan bistro to shame. When i first unboxed the machine i was a little intimidated, however once i went over the operating literature, apprehensions i previously held soon dissipated.

This machine is a beast – and i mean that in the most positive way ever. Substantial, impressive, and all encompassing – just a few words to describe this delonghi coffee machine. At the push of a button you can grind your beans based upon your taste preference; make an espresso, cappuccino, latte, or just a coffee and all will happen automatically, with the exception of the milk frothing. Pretty slickthere is an internal water reservoir which holds 60 ounces of water which is quite generous compared to other similar models. You can use either whole beans (and grind to your preference) or use pre-ground coffee beans. You just tell the machine which. There is also a steam wand for frothing milk or cream for your drinks. The frothing wand is pretty powerful and long enough to give you a little operating room around the machine. Included also is a coffee infuser which is removable and does need to be cleaned regularly. At the front of the machine there is a drip/spill tray which is great for overfills or little drips.

 this delonghi magnifica s (ecam 23210sb) espresso machine does a great job making delicious espresso drinks, and it is really easy to use – once you get it set up. In my video i demo the process of making espresso with steamed milk and go over some basics, pros, and cons. ********pros:*the coffee is delicious and nearly foolproof once you learn the machine, and results are consistent*operation is fairly quick: it took 1 minute 15 seconds to power up & get ready, 55 seconds to grind & brew the largest espresso*unit is flexible: you can use ground or whole bean coffee; machine adjusts for temperature control, hard/soft water management, brew strength, serving size, etc. *quality grinder: the machine houses a burr grinder for precise & excellent grinding, and is adjustable for coarseness*relatively compact: for a double espresso brewer, the unit isn’t too bigcons:*there is a learning curve, and initial setup in particular is somewhat cumbersome using the buttons and icon menus that aren’t always very intuitive. Once you set it up, however, it is pretty simple to operate with a bit of practice*the machine is almost entirely plastic. For the price, i was expecting a bit more metal. Still, it seems durable and well made. ***********overall, this is a really nice machine that should appeal to inexperienced home users, or anyone looking for super easy espresso results, willing to pay for quality automated operation from a respected brand. Most importantly, the coffee consistently tastes wonderful, and getting great results requires little effort from the operator. In addition, the high quality burr grinder, flexibility, and full automation make this a really nice espresso maker with a price tag to match.

This is a not cheap coffee makers. I have always had cheap coffee makers. But if you can justify the expense, this will make some great coffee. I am still working on what i can do with it, but it is dead easy. Cappuccino/espresso in barely more time than it takes for a k-cup. The water container isn’t huge, so that needs to be filled about once every 2 days for me. That isn’t a big deal, but if you have a number of coffee drinkers you will have to re-fill more often. But it does seem small compared to the coffee bean and used grounds storage, which have enough space for about a week or so. This is also a pretty compact machine. So i think the size of the water container makes is a trade off to size.

I admit that i have had several years’ experience with espresso machines, so it did not take long for me to get this delonghi machine up and running. I did, however, ask a friend with no experience whatsoever to try it out and she had no trouble at all making us both lovely cappuccinos using the instruction booklet that comes with the machine. If anything, this machine is easier to use that most i have had experience with. I did not have any previous experience with an automatic coffee bean grinder, and have always ground my own beans in a separate grinder. This delonghi does an absolutely superb job of grinding beans just prior to brewing and is much less noisy than my old grinder. This makes the coffee as good (if not better) than any fancy coffees you can buy at your local coffee shop. The water reservoir is large, easy to fill and refill, and is simple to clean. The steamer creates a lot of steam fast to froth milk , and you are able to set the brew strength from mild to strong to make coffee to suit any number of users. I use a very strong coffee (french roast), and i make either a latte or a cappuccino for myself every morning. After using this machine for several weeks, i have had no problems whatsoever.

The only complaint is the water reservoir needs to be larger but is easy to fillif you love a great cup of coffee this is your machine.

This makes a delicious cup of coffee. When first setting this machine up, i was worried it was going to be too complicated to use. It seemed to have so many controls and buttons and ways to configure things. But, once i started to play with it, i found it much, much easier to work with than my first impression of it. Along with an instruction manual, this also comes with a dvd (just like some of the high end vehicles) which is basically a set of videos of the instruction manual spoken by a beautifully articulate female voice. Both the instruction manual and the dvd are easy to follow and understand. The machine comes with a built in bean grinder, so i can use my favorite whole beans and the machine will grind to order, each cup of coffee is freshly ground. Very easythe water compartment is large enough to be able to make several cups of coffee. And it’s easy to fill, just remove the container, fill with water and it pops back in the machine.

There’s no other way to say it. Put whole coffee beans in the top, press a couple buttons, and out comes a cup of espresso just the strength and size you like. Press another button and you can perfectly steam milk and creamer to make a yummy latte. So far we’ve made espressos, cappuccinos, and lattes. I stock it with full-strength whole beans, and then there’s a little area in the top where with the twist of a knob i can tell the machine to use the already ground beans and make a decaf cup if i like. Frankly, there’s no need to go to starbucks. I can easily make a magnificent cup of coffee at home. I hope this video review helps you know what to expect. It does take a little longer to make a cup and then froth the milk, but the quality of what is made is amazingupdate: service so-so.

 if you’d like to make at home some of the best coffee this side of twin peaks, then you’ll want to check out this new coffee maker from delonghi called the magnifica s. In my video i go over the main features, show what’s included, and even demo making a cup of espresso so you know exactly how long it takes and how loud the grinder sounds. I also give a tip on how to easily remove the infuser so you can clean it. There’s a lot to love about this machine:* grinds coffee beans with a stainless steel conical burr grinder and an adjustable grind dial* also takes pre-ground coffee* hot water and steam spout for making tea or frothing milk* removable, large 60 ounce water tank with water filter* removable coffee infuser for easy cleaning* removable water drip tray and coffee grind bin* control panel for making coffee choices and settings* adjustable coffee spout for different cup sizes* warming platform for cup/saucer storagethe coffee it makes tastes absolutely wonderful, with crema, and the additional steam wand for frothing milk allows you to make lots of different coffee drinks. Everything is accessible and easy to clean. The only trouble i’ve had with the unit is that soon after setting it up, the machine kept telling me the coffee grind bin was full — even when it was empty. I think the sensor must have been confused because after i cleaned the coffee infuser, the machine went back to proper operation. This is a great coffee maker. If you want a fantastic cup of coffee that’s super easy to make — pour in beans, place cup under spout, and press a button — i can’t think of a machine that will make you happier than this delonghi magnificent s. I hope this review and video are useful.

I never would have considered a home espresso /coffee machine due to the price but this one is pretty nifty. First of all, it doesn’t take any more counter space that the two keurigs that i’ve had. It’s a very attractive, stainless steel machine which just looks cool. I love fresh ground coffee so this fits the ticket. I don’t usually take the time to grind my own coffee unless it’s the weekend but this will do it for me. I’m also a big tea drinker so it’s very nice to have the 60 oz water well with hot water dispenser whenever i want it. And then there are the many adjustments as to strength of the coffee that i wouldn’t have paid attention to until it was an option here. And i really love that it will adjust to my favorite mug size. I admit that i’m stuck in a rut and always like to use the same mug. The downside is that this is a pretty expensive machine to have hanging around ‘just for coffee.

Philips Saeco Pure Automatic Espresso Machine : If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again

I love the flavor, i love the community that comes with it (‘how about we meet for a cup of coffee?’), i love to find small independent roasters and try their bean. I own a french press and a toddy cold brew system, and am looking into a filtration system for pour-overs. I’ve even been considering roasting my own beans. If i spend a lot of money on a monthly basis on one consumable item, it is coffee – from independent shops and beans (no folgers for this girl). So when the vine program offered up an automatic espresso maker, i didn’t hesitate one bit. The pre-review:day 1: i open the box, delirious with excitement. I check the instruction booklet, which is very simple: pull out water tank and fill.

Saeco Pure Automatic Espresso Machine

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Delicious milk froth thanks to the classic milk frother
  • Coffee without the wait thanks to the quick heat boiler
  • Every bean ground perfectly with our metal grinders
  • Save your favorite coffee length
  • Fully automatic rinsing and descaling

Several months in, and it works like a champ. Brewing 5 or 6 arabica lattes/day. Costs a lot less than my local coffee shop. The brew might be a bit too mild for some. Depends on how long you’ve worked as a barista, i guess. For most people, this brews a delicious cup.

One of the things that prevents people from making espresso drinks at home is complexity. A traditional espresso maker requires the user to grind the beans, tamp them, brew the espresso and dump the ‘puck’ of spent coffee grounds. Well, this machine takes most of that complexity away. You simply put beans in the hopper on top of the unit, press a button, and a few seconds later you have a perfectly brewed cup of espresso, crema and all. After a dozen cups or so, you empty the bin full of spent coffee grounds into the trash. There really isn’t any more to it than that. The other difficult part about making espresso drinks is frothing milk. You really need a machine that provides sufficient steam power to froth milk effectively. And in all honesty, the technique for milk frothing is not simple and doesn’t easily lend itself to automation; this machine doesn’t attempt to do anything to automate that part. The unit provides ample steam power for frothing (something you cannot take for granted and machines of this type), and there are plenty of on-line resources to help you learn the proper technique.

I’ve had mine for about 500-600 shots. Great coffee but super-auto espresso machines aren’t for everyone. For example it won’t continue to crank out tasty shots without frequent, simple maintenance. I encourage you to start with early familiarization and youtube videos. Even roomba needs to be cleaned every few uses. Maintenance consists of emptying the drip tray and rinsing and greasing the brew unit. The drip tray slips right out, the brew unit pops in and out and is located behind a door on the right side. The guy on yt demonstrates cleaning and lubing and it takes less than 5 minutes.

Saeco Pure Automatic Espresso Machine : Makes a good coffee, but looks super cheap. With this price, you will not have too many options. If you want a espresso machine, you either buy a real one or keep going to starbucks.

The saeco pure automatic espresso machine is a great espresso machine. What i really like about this super automatic is that there are no digital menus to scroll through. What you get are large buttons displayed with what it is you want. Press the button that has an espresso symbol on it (cup half full). Press the lungo button (cup completely full). Listen to the grinder grind the beans and wait about 30 seconds and you have your satisfaction. The unit is made of plastic and i was apprehensive about this at first, thinking it may be cheap, but it’s not. The plastic is quite thick and i think will last the test of time.

I received this espresso machine about a week ago, and have already made over 20 espressos and cappuccinos with it. Since this can also do regular coffees in addition to espressos, i have officially replaced my 4 year old breville keurig coffee maker with this one. I love the fact that it has a grinder. This allows for the freshest possible coffee taste. For now i’m using mayorga organic café cubano (whole bean, of course), and the taste is sublime. There are multiple grinder settings, but i’m using the default one (middle setting). After receiving the package, i set up the coffee machine on my kitchen counter. There isn’t any assembly, other than plugging in the power cord. I found it odd that the coffee container/grinder had coffee residue in it (and also smelled like coffee), but a piece of paper inside the package explains that philips does complete tests with actual coffee before packaging the machine. I skimmed through the manual, just to make sure i did everything properly. I started by adding bottled spring water and some coffee beans. At first the machine wouldn’t power on properly (a warning led light would turn on instead). The manual suggested that i should check the brew unit. So i pulled out the brew unit (there are instructions on the manual, and videos for similar models on the internet), and reinserted it.

This looks like a well made machine. It is simple to use with dedicated buttons for espresso, lungo (regular coffee), or hot water. It also has a button for steaming and another to run a cleaning cycle. It has indicator lights on the front for the various functions, including low water, empty coffee grounds, no coffee and a general warning light. The 43 page manual makes this machine look complicated but it’s not and it includes a 4 page quick start guide to get you started pretty quickly. The first time start-up is a bit of a pain but i’ve never had one of these before so they may all require the same priming and rinsing. First, you fill the machine with water, run an espresso cycle to prime it. Then run the coffee cycle 3 times. Next, run the steam wand until it runs dry. Then refill the machine with water and coffee and brew 3-5 cups of coffee and discard.

Like how it’s self-cleaning, the coffee is hotter than our previous saeco, quieter also.

I meant to buy another (more expensive one) saeco automatic espresso machine from a store, but at the very last moment i was told that was is sold out and the only saeco machine in the store was this one, i just decided to give it a try since it was on sell for only $399. 95, so i bought it and it turned out to be the best espresso machine i’ve ever seen. It is easy, simple and powerful. The only cons may be the buttons of this machine. You should press them all the way in to make it work, but it’s nothing in comparison with the price and the quality of the your espresso and froth milk.

This machine makes perfect espressos- soooo much better than the breville infuser that i just returned. Just push a button and it grinds, tamps and brews your coffee exactly the way you set the machine. It froths milk in a snap (but use a bigger pitcher- the frother is a little strong). Pros: makes a perfect cup with beaurtiful crema, and it really does adjust itself to the type of coffee and grind you use; froths milk really fast with lots of foam. Cons: the frother is a little strong. Use a bigger pitcher to hold all the foam. Caution: the machine needs to be ‘primed’ before it can be used. Read the instructions all the way through before you start. The instructions are not well organized and sometimes the information that you need to start is at the end of the section of steps that you are preparing for.

Ones we adjusted the amount of water per cup for espresso and coffee to our taste, it’s been a great morning every morning. It’s easy to operate, fun to watch and the quality of beverages are very high. Thanks to saeco and to the person who returned it to the store without a box and manual (easy to find online). Because of you, we got it for $200 less than a price.

Nespresso Citiz C111 Espresso Maker : Best gift I ever bought myself.

We found out this nespresso device and espresso just after my moms and dads got a single as a reward. Right after the to start with flavor, equally my wife and i ended up hooked and we bought our individual a single to change our keurig. Even though the keurig was a cheaper way to have everyday coffee swiftly, it didn’t even start to assess to starbucks, and we nevertheless usually have been tempted to go there. With the nespresso, when we go to starbucks locally, we provide our individual nespresso coffee with us. Be informed that the latest models with the larger sized canisters are not excellent. But this more mature design that employs a distinct mechanism to make the espresso is wonderful, and nespresso’s coffees are outstanding. Not for persons who like weak coffee.

I just love coming downstairs in the morning, urgent a button and having fun with a fantastic cup of coffee (or two or 3). We experienced taste-checks (it comes with an assortment) and arrived up with the kinds we like ideal. Of course, it’s additional pricey than drip, but oh so worth it.

Just after a approach to decide which nespresso was appropriate for me, i settled on the citiz and i have not been disappointed. It was paired with the milk frother and both have worked as marketed. The citiz presents a wonderful cup of espresso, both of those from the nespresso pods and from refillable pods i acquired by amazon as nicely. I use the machine pretty much every day – usually more than as soon as per working day. I have produced espressos, americanos, lattes and cappuccinos – all of them delectable. I have also made use of the frother on the chilly placing with good success. If there is a slight downside, it would be that each models could deliver a hotter temperature. Total however, i have no regrets and have been really joyful with the results.

I’ve experienced my nespresso citiz for about two months now and i truly like it. I haven’t been to starbucks considering that i have obtained this. It makes a gorgeous espresso with a wonderful crema. The milk frother is excellent, too. Regularly great benefits.

Not certain how we survived just before this detail, pretty much paid out for alone with our lowered outings to starbucks.

Nespresso Citiz C111 Espresso Maker with Aeroccino Plus Milk Frother, Chrome : The wife was dropping an average of $150 a month at our local starbucks (i don’t drink coffee). Picked this machine up and she couldn’t be happier. She enjoys the variety of flavors, caffeine strengths and ease of use. It doesn’t hurt that there’s a nespresso store located in a nearby mall (capsule prices in store are the same as those on nespresso. Com and the stores also carry the limited, holiday flavors). If the wife drinks three espressos a day that totals approximately $65. Sometimes she’ll just have one or two a day. We clean the drip catcher and capsule catcher every two to three days. Very easy removal and rinse process. The milk frother also works great. We couldn’t be happier with this purchase.

Nespresso is fantastic for serious coffee fans that want great expresso in an immediate with nearly no mess. Perfectly created machine looks wonderful & the froth maker is remarkable. Superb merchandise at a good value.

I am a mild espresso drinker, commonly a couple of cups in the morning and that’s it. The citiz is good for getting the working day started, specially if you are not a espresso nerd and just want the consume as speedily as doable. The machine works wonderful after a yr and the supply of espresso pods variety is suitable. Only gripe is it is a bit noisy for the 30sec when producing the espresso, and normally in advance of commencing it i experienced to near the doors to other upstairs bedrooms if individuals are continue to sleeping.

Incredible warm espressos, with purely natural crema, at the contact of a button. The only draw back is that i am drinking a great deal additional espresso than i was with the grind & tamp machine i experienced ahead of. Capsules are however a little bit steep, nevertheless, so i attempted employing a person 2 times. It’s a bit considerably less intense, but still great. I wouldn’t endorse using it a 3rd time, unless of course you might be looking for a tiny cup of weak brewed coffee. Oh, and best of all (for me), if you want to make a tall iced drink, you can simply remove the drip tray and place your glass right under the spout to pour straight into it. 25′ tall and they fairly a great deal max it out. The aerofrother issue is astounding, all by alone.

This was a reward to me for all my hard get the job done as nicely as all the income give to espresso stores, i am going to consume so substantially coffee with this . Super rapid delivery, and in wonderful shape. Effectively packaged and effortless to begin using. I already knew i wished this and experienced made use of one ahead of. So i was in a position to locate it in the problem i desired, with the extras i desired, in the color i desired, all for the price i desired, and experienced it shipped the working day i desired. Also, individually requested more pods and discovered they ended up equipped to ship the device and the pods in one particular box. I used the early morning obtaining jacked on best lattes and espresso before perform.

Execs: little footprint, nice crema, fantastic selection of coffeescons: loud, does not make as well scorching espresso, no other reliable coffee pods than nespresso which is about 85 cents a pod.

I have had this espresso maker and frother for 6 months now and they the two nevertheless perform wonderful even after two times day-to-day use. I get great crema each time, and with the frother, i get accurately the froth/foam i want devoid of fail (i use 1% milk). All i have to do is retain h2o in the tank and keep up my stock of nespresso capsules (decaf and typical).

This will make a fantastic espresso. The machine will come with a good range of coffee pods to see which you like finest. Individually i like them all but i have not experimented with the decaf. The milk frother is quick to use and can make for a great cappachino.

Update: if you depart the frother on the black holder while it is really plugged in it will die swiftly. You want to unplug the black holder when it can be not in use. I will say, this product is gorgeous. My main challenges with ordering on the internet is in some cases items search smaller/even larger than you consider, but this product or service looks just like the picture. They definitely went all out on the packaging, producing certain it did not get damaged. It arrived in this massive box, you open it to obtain a further box, you open up that one particular to obtain the actual merchandise box surrounded with paper as cushion. Then, of study course, in the merchandise box is the genuine products and when you open up it you are going to see the espresso machine shielded by styrofoam. Inside the item box you get 18 samplers, guidelines/manual, milk frother (if you obtained it), consume recipes, and how to signal up for their cargo pods. I adopted the guidelines on how to established it up, quite smooth established up. I observed a single reviewer complain that you have to hold the button to extract a shot each and every time you want espresso and that is not accurate at all. You can established every single button for a brewing time (if you like over extracted pictures, or shorter shots, whatever floats your boat) and the unit will try to remember that for following time so you you should not have to hold the button. I’m a barista at my families cafe and this espresso taste so substantially improved. I can’t hold out to attempt the other samplers to see what they all have to offer you in phrases of taste.

I have utilised these equipment for years when traveling by means of europe and normally guarantee myself i will get just one when i return house – i have lastly done it. I read through extensive opinions for weeks just before choosing on this design and the two primary reasons i did were being the bigger drinking water reservoir and the potential to put entire sized cups underneath the spout. The device is beautiful, effortless to use and the milk frother was a actual bonus. If you like latte’s and use milk substitutes, this frother does the best position ever.

The ideal xmas current at any time. Just just one working day after sampling espressos and cappuccinos in our new citiz with aerocino milk frother, my partner rapidly purchased about $400 value of coffees, 4 distinct dimensions cups and saucers (who realized??) and a capsule storage tray.

Do not use the ‘compatible’ espresso pods.They will crack your device. This is the best reward i have ever acquired for myself. Chrome is a minimal difficult to preserve clean, but i really like appreciate appreciate the espresso beverages i can make with this.

I have a extensive commute to do the job and are likely to be rushed in the early morning. Normally takes fewer than a moment to turn it on and make an exceptional latte. This in fact incentivizes me to get out of bed. Fantastic tasting espresso, way too (and i usually spoiled myself to sightglass or four barrel).

Brew a great cup of espresso in about one minute. They even despatched me a bag with absolutely free ups pickup for me to recycle the pods.

Performs well but no on off swap. The drinking water container leaks conveniently except if aligned precisely.

Purchase this nespresso equipment from amazon by january 31, 2015 and you can get a $a hundred voucher from nespresso which you can use for buying capsules from their nespresso club.

Espresso arrives out scorching and powerful and time for brew time period is quick. Many compliments from all who have found it.

  • Great price. And for the price

Utilized in our church coffee store.

Terrific price for an simple espresso device. I definitely appreciate how simple this espresso device is. My only criticism is the frothing pitcher is also tall for the equipment. The froth steamer on the machine is effective fantastic and will make yummy steamed milk for the best latte/cappuccino. This bundle pack is value the extra charge. I hope you get pleasure from this equipment as a lot as i have so significantly.

Other individuals have expressed problems with the metal frothing cup getting also tall. I have adressed the difficulty by relocating the equipment to the edge of the counter. This way i can froth milk for a person or two cups. I have not experienced a problem with applying pods. I use the two typical and decaf expresso.

Terrific replacement for my previous worn out espresso maker.

I completely love this espresso machine. I completely adore this espresso equipment. It is easy to use, and the bundle saved me income. I can make my have latte, now.

Makes the most scrumptious espresso – way far more delicious than. Helps make the most delightful espresso – way extra delectable than the $1500+ espresso device my father has. He in fact went and purchased just one of these soon after using mine.

I’m quite delighted with the merchandise. It will make pretty good expresso. I would endorse this merchandise to somebody that failed to want to spend a ton of funds on a equipment, but required a person that worked. Coffee expresso equipment and neither just one if them worked as excellent as this a person.

It really is fantastic and fullfil my expectation.

Only complaint is that the minimal white mugs vibrate off the system whilst the coffee brews. My spouse has to maintain the mugs in put whilst brewing. He’s eager to do this, but i’m not. So except if he is producing me the coffee, i will not likely use it. All round while, it will make great espresso. I give it a 3 star, but my spouse would most likely give it a four star.

It will make really superior espresso, that is the superior part. But, as has been mentioned by other folks, there is no peak to spare below the coffee cartridge. On my aged equipment (which died) i could place my latte cup below there, but it will not in shape this delonghi. And, the steaming wand is stupidly brief. And, just a slight nit, when you place demitasse cups beneath the dispenser the vibration helps make them transfer, quite possibly far ample to escape the stream of espresso. I use a little bit of paper towel to quit this. It does make superior espresso even though.

You have to obtain the accent kit. You have to acquire the accessory package with the pitcher and cups if you want an straightforward espresso. The steamer is near to the counter but i positioned it on the edge of the counter so i can use the pitcher with no problems.

Have had cappuccino devices in advance of. Have had cappuccino devices ahead of. Undoubtedly well worth the place on the counter.

I would advocate having a individual tamper. A number of notes on this espresso device as very well as the bundle:the espresso machine:the device capabilities perfectly. The basket is pressurized so if you’re a correct coffee snob this is not to your advantage. That currently being stated, it can be de-pressurized and re-pressurized if need be. (theres a attractive youtube movie on that approach). The tamper thats built on to the facet of the equipment isn’t really the most intuitive way to tamp your beans. You have to keep the equipment down on the back (over the water reservoir) due to the fact the metal all over the steam knob gets incredibly hot. I would advocate getting a independent tamper. (shocked that that failed to come with the bundle. I would have desired that to a scooper or the frother wand.

Will work good–can make good expression correct absent.

It truly is so a great deal quieter than our previous espresso device. We use this strictly for espresso so i are unable to remark on how the other options of the device are. It isn’t going to take lengthy to heat up, easy to use and will take up minimal house in our smaller kitchen area. We’ll see how the heating factor retains up.

Delonghi ec155 15 bar pump espresso and cappuccino maker bundle. My husband and i are obtaining a good time applying the delonghi ec155 15 bar pump espresso and cappuccino maker bundle. It operates wonderful and have experienced no issues utilizing it, quite simple to use.

Jura Ena Micro 1 – Great machine! Fantastic coffee every time, from beans, with one touch. Easy to use, self-cleaning. No milk steamer.

This espresso maker is a-maaaazing. We obtained this as a birthday gift for my partner. It is really quite simple to use (it could not be less complicated) and it will make amazing espresso. We bought the cinammon dolce syrup (starbucks) and we make the cinnamon dolce lattes at house now, as properly as the white mochas. This is surely really worth each and every penny. We are pretty satisfied with our order.

This espresso equipment is superb. Needing to lower the two times-everyday cost of getting americanos and lattes, i used a number of months exploring a range of devices. The $500-600 assortment equipment all experienced troubles, all seemingly have been destined to working experience mechanical failure. Right after broadening my research to contain some finer manufacturers, i came to this jura ena. The critiques ended up brilliant, the youtube movies have been great, and the other net sources couldn’t come across a great deal wrong. Out of the box, i discovered there was a surprising quantity of customizability for this kind of a very simple espresso maker. Set up took a couple of minutes and just after some take a look at cups and photographs, i was earning gorgeous americanos in seconds. Ready to decide on my personal beans, the beverages i’m now earning at dwelling are greater than my typical espresso outlets. Even though i am unfortunate for the local espresso economy, i have my day-to-day espresso value down to about a dollar which features all around six shots value of espresso.

Just after an initial doaall is nicely. My device was dead-on-arrival. There was essentially an inside hose that was disconnected. Rather than heading the amazon route, i determined to speak to jura united states of america right. The sent me a alternative device with a pay as you go label to mail them back the faulty unit. . I actually like each the benefit of the unit as-nicely-as the espresso it produces. Even my son, with the individual grinder and espresso device makes use of the jura. This unit is absolutely for dwelling use.Here are the specifications for the Jura Ena Micro 1:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Simply espresso, the ultra-compact 1-cup coffee machine
  • Designed to make the perfect espresso
  • Bean to cup in a compact design; User defined cup sizes
  • Aroma preservation cover keeps the coffee beans fresher longer
  • Automatic energy saving mode with the intelligent preheating system

The best machine for your morning cuppa joe. It will make a wonderful cup of espresso (or an americano), with no muss or fuss. It really is super uncomplicated to clean up, reasonably tranquil, and it can be pretty brief to make espresso from total beans. The spout moves up and down and will accommodate a thermal espresso mug. There is no milk steamer on this model, but because i just consume coffee, that’s not a difficulty for me. The design is a minor little bit much larger than devices that take iper and other kinds of ground coffee modules, presumably to accommodate the inner grinder. The jura turns out to be just as practical and mess totally free, as the spent grounds close up in a hopper which is simple to remove and empty into the trash with no mess (and you you should not have to waste all the packaging from making use of modules, and you can use whatsoever coffee beans you like). If you want to have the occasional cup of decaf, there is a small hopper on the aspect wherever you can pour in floor espresso.

Pleasant machine and would make fantastic coffee. Good device and can make terrific coffee. My only grievance was that it would have been wonderful to at the very least get the house owners manual with it. It wasn’t really hard to figure out how the machine labored, but nevertheless. The touch pad is nice, but you have to make absolutely sure you find your placing you want, the colour of the choice is in red define and the logos are red as well, acquiring the contrast would be improved. Little aspects on it is why i gave this a 4 star score. I will say it really is a very little on the pricey facet, but the style and aroma of the espresso is what can make jura stands out the most for me compared to other espresso devices.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Best coffee machine for caffeine addicts
  • Great improvement in the ability to fill the water tank over previous units
  • Great for home use with no extra bells and whistles to drive the price up.

This espresso maker is a dream. Tends to make delightful espresso instantaneously, so it truly is all set whenever you want a cup. Holds enough beans and h2o for various days, building 2-three cups a day, but this will range dependent on the size of espresso you pick. We purchased a frother to go with it, so we don’t have to fear about the milk clean up-up in this equipment, but can even now have froth when we’d like. The cleansing tablets usually are not too costly, and are also simple to use we’ve had the unit a number of months and have only been prompted after to operate the cleansing cycle. A bit noisy in the morning, but it’s grinding fresh new beans, so nothing unanticipated.

Excellent advancement in the potential to fill the water tank around prior units. Have applied the even bigger version of this for decades and it however functions. Moved to a scaled-down place and preferred a little something a small downsized. As well as i never used the steam etc. Functionality on the larger device. It is nevertheless new so extended expression duribilty is but to be observed. But mechanically it seems like the bigger device. I did not elect to use the filter and this unit does involve some added set up to convey to it if u are making use of the filter or not and i suspect that variations the time involving cleanings. One particular characteristic i really like about this a single is the drinking water tank has a pop up lid that makes it possible for u to fill it without the need of pulling the tank all the way out. Considering the fact that the organic placement on your counter is beneath a cabinet i have in no way noticed a cabinet large adequate to make it possible for u to pull the tank out.

So considerably i have had this for about three months or so and it works pretty well. I had been using all those k-cup programs for about a month and made the decision that they’re awful in the truth that the espresso output is extremely weak in comparison to the ena micro 1. I in no way was a big coffee drinker but now i have a few cups a working day and this device is very successful at building a terrific cup of espresso. I purchased a made use of device from amazon which to be genuine it experienced a several scratches on it and was probably never cleaned or descaled prior to shipping and delivery but i have accomplished all of these and it operates flawlessly. I kind of desire the drinking water tank was a little bit greater as i experience like i have to fill it incredibly often. Also, the device is relatively loud and it vibrates but i am not going to fault it for that. I suggest at least striving this matter out just before you go and expend $1000+ on some thing ‘better.

Great machine for 1 or 2 people. So i do actually really like this machine but a be aware of warning. Buttons are pretty sensitive so a gentle touch is needed, if not the machine thinks you want to program the h2o degree and will continue on to brew ( mixing way much too substantially h2o) right up until you manually stop it. And if you do not ‘reprogram’ the brew, that degree will brew once again future timei do like this equipment much better than the former micro machine due to the fact you can brew a cup of espresso as well as espresso and a risesso brew that is tremendous deliciousfinally, mainly because of the dimension. Drinking water, beans, and so on, you actually would not like this equipment if you on a regular basis make beverages for much more than a pair persons.

Taste like you introduced from a coffee store.

We have this equipment for about a calendar year now. So much the encounter is almost 100% positive. Professionals: consistent coffee excellent straightforward strength/drinking water quantity adjustments superior coffee temperature convenience of procedure wonderful structure complementing our kitchen household furniture. Negatives: it is loud, and the pump alone is a great deal louder than the grinder tough to healthy in a smaller (nyc dimensions) kitchen area since it needs entry from the front, back again and top rated to get started the cleaning cycle you want to read the instruction manual first given that it is not intuitive. The machine is not inexpensive, and i was surprised that all the shiny sections were being not steel but quickly scratched plastic2. Judging by the different hissing/clicking noises device will make throughout procedure, it should contain a ton of compact mechanical areas and valves, so i am curious to hold out yet another 12 months or so and see how properly it stands the test of time. We are acquiring anyplace involving two and 8 cups of coffee a day, so the coffeemaker is not overworked. Yet the device is hugely recommended.

The best machine for your morning cuppa joe. It will make a wonderful cup of espresso (or an americano), with no muss or fuss. It really is super uncomplicated to clean up, reasonably tranquil, and it can be pretty brief to make espresso from total beans. The spout moves up and down and will accommodate a thermal espresso mug. There is no milk steamer on this model, but because i just consume coffee, that’s not a difficulty for me. The design is a minor little bit much larger than devices that take iper and other kinds of ground coffee modules, presumably to accommodate the inner grinder. The jura turns out to be just as practical and mess totally free, as the spent grounds close up in a hopper which is simple to remove and empty into the trash with no mess (and you you should not have to waste all the packaging from making use of modules, and you can use whatsoever coffee beans you like). If you want to have the occasional cup of decaf, there is a small hopper on the aspect wherever you can pour in floor espresso.

My particular beloved correct now is wholefood’s allegro organic gentle roast breakfast. I recently moved from nesspresso after over five several years of experiencing that procedure. The enthusiasm to drop a quite huge chunk of alter was twofold. To begin with, i was starting off to get worried about the capsules in phrases of the environmental influence of using them (although nesspresso does offer you a recycling method) as effectively as typical issues about the chemical substances etcetera probably used in production them. Next, likely this route will allow me to pick my have beans based on preference but also centered on resource. My personal preferred correct now is wholefood’s allegro natural and organic light-weight roast breakfast blend that is also shade developed and rainforest certified. I have uncovered the transition to be quite clean, this equipment is just as simple to use as the nessprsso. The original outlay is of course much larger but the on-likely expense lower. I continue on to use the nesspresso milk frother but the consume is not warm plenty of for my spouse. I may perhaps have to appear at yet another solution there.

Taste like you introduced from a coffee store.

Excellent, compact coffee device, wonderful tasteperfect sizing for my demands.

If you want excellent espresso get it. I acquired one of these back in november of 2015 and have experienced troubles with it so considerably. Acquired another just one for the boat simply because we delight in it so much. No other coffee maker compares. Well worthy of the cash, so a lot greater than any keurig, espresso maker etcetera. I have normally changed the filters and used the cleaning tabs when prompted which is quick to do and have utilized excellent coffee.

Total a good choiceif you really don’t need to have a frother. . I have had this espresso device for nearly 4 a long time now, and it is my fourth equipment more than the past twenty years. As lengthy as you do not head not owning a milk frother, it is a terrific selection. (and do not trouble acquiring one particular of the ‘spinner’ frothers the outcomes are dreadful. ) the only challenge i have experienced is the adjustable shot dimensions occasionally goes rogue and forgets when to cease. Nevertheless, it is quick to reset this when it transpires.

I had keurig device for a couple of a long time and hated the bizarre watety taste. I genuinely required to purchase a wonderful espresso equipment but they are all very pricey. I was debating amongst this and breville espresso machine but determined to get this a single mainly because producing espresso is pretty cumbersome in the early morning. I am soo happy with my selection. I will not go to starbucks any more. I appreciate this device and advise it to everybody.

This is our 4th expresso equipment. We experimented with delonghi esam3300 magnifica, breville bes870xl and philips saeco xsmall. Every created weak expresso until eventually we did alot of tweaking. Each lasted only weeks right before malfunctioning. Our jura ena micro 1 created potent, best expresso on the to start with shot. It is quieter and uncomplicated to use. It is attractive to search at- simple. For milk we procured a secura computerized milk warmer and frother which silently makes great frothnow we appreciate quick, early early morning great cappuccino and macchiato that style superior than starbucks devoid of sounds waking up our younger kids.

When nespresso elevated the price of their espresso to $. 70 for each capsule i stopped to work out how much i am paying every single 12 months for coffee – and it was very well more than $1,000. Time to find an different. I don’t like the inconvenience and mess of grinding, tamping, and cleansing up with a semi-automated so went with the jura ena micro 1. (we have a individual milk frother/heater so did not need to have that feature on our equipment. Aside from, just yet another portion to crack. )it’s been pretty much a month, and so much so fantastic with the jura. Easy to use, seems sharp, and i love staying able to use regionally roasted coffee.

It should really shell out for by itself in about 9 months and frankly it tends to make way much better espresso than the baristas downstairs. I acquired a refurbished micro 1 for my office environment. It really should pay for itself in about nine months and frankly it helps make way greater espresso than the baristas downstairs. I can’t completely endorse this espresso equipment one hundred% due to the fact i have only experienced it for about 12 several hours, but so significantly i like it a great deal. It helps make a great cup of coffee and the moment set up it works like a appeal. I have figured out a few factors that are worthy of recognizing so read through this prior to you determine you have a challenge. To start with: read through the instructions and abide by them. You can screw up the machine if you never. Second, will not freak out if the device would not prime by itself the initial time it attempts (web site 11 of the manual). When i initial filled the tank and dropped it into the device, it didn’t fully key and went into mistake.

DeLonghi ECAM22110SB Compact Automatic Cappuccino – Very easy to clean/maintain

Espresso top quality is quite good. The sum of crema is good. A single of the greatest items about this machine is it is really absolute comfort. You could finish up ingesting far more espresso since it is so quick to incorporate an extra shot to your early morning plan. I also just love to enjoy it operate. It will take about a moment to warmth up to working temperature which beats the 15 minutes of another preferred machine. As the recommendations say it can take a couple attempts to get the machine dialed in for your favored energy and temperature.

Amazingly compact and fantastic brewing. . It is essentially a operating substitution for our aged saeco emphasis (which is also an outstanding machine). It will not make pretty the exact depth of coffee but it really is very close. Be aware:by ‘depth’ i am hoping to audio all espresso aficionado. What i truly signify is it would not have as significantly punch-you-in-the-intestine caffeine. This can be solved with a superior roast or a bag of coffee grounds that has a skull-and-crossbones on it. My wife is also a evening-shift rn so she *desires* the coffee. The most spectacular matter about this machine is the sizing – it’s far more compact than even my outdated compact saeco. This matter would be ideal for a motor household, mobile dwelling, or even just the space-conscious and delivers fantastic final results every single time.

We have now had the delonghi ecam for four months now and have experienced a very beneficial encounter with it. The high-quality of the espresso and the coffee are both equally fantastic and much better than most coffee stores that we employed to acquire from. The dimensions is fantastic for constrained house on a countertop with the caveat that you will need some depth. The steam wand works pretty effectively for frothing milk and is effortless to clear. We have long gone by way of two descaling cycles, and the process is uncomplicated. Execs: superb brewing (avoid oily beans), reliable outcomes, straightforward-to-usecons: agree with other reviewers that the heating pad on best does not have considerably outcome, but its requirement is questionable. Overall, i remarkably advise the product or service.

  • Best in class, but took a lot of research
  • I like to start my day with a latte
  • Really Nice Machine So Far

For superior robust brew, browse the guide. Critical to working this excellent machine correctly is examining the manual meticulously. Fundamentally i just want to brew solitary cups of espresso and espresso once in a while without making a entire pot of espresso. The delonghi does this completely. It is much additional compact than my past saeco machine, which actually lasted ten years. The delonghi is also considerably a lot easier to clean soon after each use. I have owned it considerably less than a thirty day period so haven’t accomplished far more in depth cleansing yet. So significantly, i have not adjusted the manufacturing facility settings for coffee and espresso strength. I can’t say this usually plenty of go through the handbook.

It isn’t going to arrive without having flaws even though. I was fortunate sufficient to modify the options to make my 1st cup of coffee properly, besides for the point that i have attempted around 10 periods to modify the amount of money of espresso the significant cup serves (4oz) to a more substantial serving with no avail. I followed the instructions, but it just does not function. A different compact complaint is that a smaller quantity of h2o arrives out when turning on the machine. That would be no difficulty, but the drinking water does not go into the holes offered for the h2o. Except if you wipe the drip tray right before making your very first cup soon after turning on the machine, the base of your cup will be extremely damp. I study lots of evaluations right before shopping for.

Wonderful espresso maker. On the next consider. We are 2 grownups that consume on average one-two cups of espresso a day, predominantly in the mornings, and we do appreciate a excellent cup of espresso. So right after striving nespresso cups, keurig and several other much less expensive espresso machines resolved its time to commit in a genuine espresso/ espresso machine. Immediately after shelling out a very good quantity of time carrying out online research we have occur to the conclusion this is the greatest machine for our desires. Put the buy, waited full of enjoyment for the delivery working day, unwrapped the machine with terrific warning, plugged in, put some espresso beans, filled the drinking water tank and waited for the magic to come about. Very well u can only picture the disappointment observing there is energy in the machine since the gentle to notify about the vacant tank of drinking water are coming on but this is wherever the magic stops considering that the relaxation of the machine is lifeless as a door nail. A pretty damn high-priced door nail. . Of study course this happened on a friday night and delonghi client assistance is m-f frequent enterprise hrs. Thank god for the awesome amazon client assistance and so the following monday we experienced a brand new machine at our door. This 1 labored from the first attempt.

Good price for a great cup of cappuccino, but requires finding out curve. This was an enhance from a ten calendar year previous ‘magnifica’ that died. I realized on that older machine how to use cold skim milk and a unique-sized pitcher to foam the milk, which this machine handles about the identical. It helps make good espresso/cappuccino. I use pete’s italian roast, and have to guidebook the beans only on celebration. The ‘cup warmer’ on both my equipment do not work — i use it as a shelf. The litmus paper to test water ‘hardness’ is meant to established reminders to ‘descale’ the machine. Neither the litmus paper, nor the pre-options worked on this machine. I did not have time to fuss, so i check out to don’t forget to descale the machine each individual one – 2 months. I respect the more compact sleeker layout of this product, and that the motor and pump is quieter than on the more substantial and older delonghi equipment.

The frother is effective wonderful – i truly favor the 2% around the 1%. It took me a little observe to find the suitable ratio of milk and coffee, but the lattes i am in a position to make at house now beat everything i have experienced at coffee outlets. The frother works great – i actually desire the 2% in excess of the 1% milk – but both way, the coffee preferences good. A single of the reasons i went with the delonghi is that it has a detachable brewing device, not like several other makes – so that i can thoroughly clean it an likely steer clear of highly-priced repairs.

This was a major obtain and i labored over it for weeks. And, of training course, read loads of evaluations, checked a lot of internet sites, watched lots of movies, and repeated the system over and in excess of. My spouse is the coffee human being and i take pleasure in about 1 cup a working day, but i love a real cup of coffee. For most my adult lifetime i have tried using all forms of coffee makers, french press you name it – just to get one particular descent cup of espresso. Following failing, i went with the keurig. I did this more than comfort much more than everything, because pretty much all the coffee’s for keurig devices flavor rancid, but i settled. I hated the truth i was destroying the ecosystem with the non-recyclable k-cups. So, i went for it, a xmas gift for my spouse.

This our 3rd thoroughly automatic machine in about 20 a long time. It has loads of terrific characteristics and is simple to use besides for a person problem. The coffee beans will not shift from the ‘hopper’ to the grinder with out getting nudged, in accordance to delonghi, this is an difficulty without a fix apart from for manually pushing the beans into the grinder. Delonghi promises this is due to the use of ‘oily’ beans these as french roast which is probably the most well-known style of beans employed for earning espresso. If not for this concern, i would have given a five star rating. It is not a ‘fully automatic’ machine if the beans you should not circulation to the grinder without having an help.

Terrific merchandise if your a coffee drinker. Pro: more compact and significantly quieter than previous version. More quickly and far more dry warmth for frothing. Great product if your a coffee drinker. Negatives: the bean basket could have a stronger incline to the grinder unit. Bean are inclined to lay aside if you do not retain it a lot more than thirty% total of beans. Glazed beans will have challenges, starbucks beans tend to be large and glazed, you will have problems. African, cuban, italian beans are great if unglazed. You can get a superior obtain on coffee beans from dwelling-products, tj maxx when they acquire overstock. Bag of italian specific beans: smaller and dry.

Finest in class, but took a ton of analysis. I really don’t drink espresso so it took me about six months to exploration just about every automatic coffee maker out there. I acquired this as an anniversary present and so i had to discover a lot about espresso promptly. I am amazed at how complex the choice was and how several distinctive solutions are out there. I needed a thing that was strong, trusted, experienced a good status, and was straightforward to thoroughly clean and sustain. Ideally i needed 1 that i could hook to the kitchen area drinking water supply like the fridge has, but that proved to be a very costly choice so i gave it up. I grew up with my mother creating folgers in a big glass pot that boiled drinking water up a stem that dripped down via grounds. I experienced no concept what i was obtaining into when setting up this quest. From the begin i realized that what i did not want want was to be locked into some drm scheme like the kureg at the place of work does. I dislike that i have to buy espresso from a single supplier for the business machine.

We have now had the delonghi ecam for four months now and have experienced a very beneficial encounter with it. The high-quality of the espresso and the coffee are both equally fantastic and much better than most coffee stores that we employed to acquire from. The dimensions is fantastic for constrained house on a countertop with the caveat that you will need some depth. The steam wand works pretty effectively for frothing milk and is effortless to clear. We have long gone by way of two descaling cycles, and the process is uncomplicated. Execs: superb brewing (avoid oily beans), reliable outcomes, straightforward-to-usecons: agree with other reviewers that the heating pad on best does not have considerably outcome, but its requirement is questionable. Overall, i remarkably advise the product or service.

I owned the esam3300 prior to purchasing this. I had to use the instruction manual to set almost everything up. Even so, when established up, it is easy to use. It takes up significantly less place on the counter than the esam3300 and it is quieter. I set it to switch off routinely immediately after thirty minutes of no use. My only grievance it that the chrome cup hotter on top rated does not get warm at all. This is not a significant deal to me as i really don’t heat up cups in any case. Advert on amazon states origin is italy, but box mine came in suggests ‘made in romania’. All in all i am delighted with this order.

Simpler/much less expensive nespresso machine. . Initial i will start by saying i’m no coffee/espresso connoisseur, in simple fact very a beginner, as i bought this to change my nespresso pixie, as nespresso did a good occupation of hooking me on a double, double-shot each and every early morning. I have been applying the ‘s’ for a minor above a thirty day period now, and about all i can say is that is is on par with nespresso, not any much better. So it truly is up to you on the price tag justification. At the price i was consuming those people little pods, this will be compensated for in shorter get. If you purchase this in hopes of it earning as great of a shot from your area high-$ coffee shop machine, you are going to be rather disappointed i suspect. The up for me is the simplicity of employing it fill the h2o chamber, and the hopper with your preferred blend of beans, and drive a button. The disposal of grounds is just about every ~seven cups or so, and the spill tray fills somehow on it’s personal, so preserve an eye on it. In any other case, it is a uncomplicated and stylish very little machine. We’ll see how it holds up very long expression.

The equilibrium of selling price and quality. . I really weighed the professionals and downsides of this buy in advance of-hand, and with this type of product it really is pretty really hard to know how substantially you should really spend for fantastic high quality. I am happy to say i discovered the sweet location. I enjoy coffee-shop top quality espresso from my dwelling daily. As an austin espresso snob who turns his nose up at starbucks espresso in favor of more refined notes and proficient baristas, my ‘coffee in a pod’ machine just was not slicing it anymore. The delonghi is the holy grail for me: i can get locally-roasted beans new each 7 days and grind them on-demand from customers, manufacturing a thick and flavorful crema and robust brew. Some quirks and notes:i have my machine set to grind the most beans feasible in a shot and use the most popular h2o, and i would nevertheless describe the espresso as delicate (however amazing). In other text, it is best at its strongest location, but i wouldn’t ever brew it weaker. I also go as a result of beans quite immediately, typically brewing a combination of limited and extensive pours totaling three-four photographs in the morning. The water reservoir isn’t going to hold a lot, so be geared up to fill it with filtered h2o rather often.

Fantastic espresso, nicely developed be watchful from whom you get it. This machine makes excellent espresso and is truly effectively developed: we would fee it a ‘five’ if the initially machine we purchased worked as well as the secondthe ideal issue about this coffee maker is the coffee: it is flavourful and extreme, and it makes use of much less coffee beans per shot than its swiss predecessor (as a consequence, the somewhat smaller hopper for the beans does not have to have way too-frequent filling). There are numerous very well-intended functions: the steam cycle voids almost all the h2o in the process just before the steam is turned on there is a rinse cycle when it powers off, as effectively as when it powers on the drinking water container has a tab to assistance the considerably stop of it when filling it there are pre-programed buttons to make solitary or double photographs of espresso or for a longer time ‘americano’ cups of coffee. Having said that, the to start with machine that was shipped failed fully the very first day we had it soon after generating 3 or 4 photographs of espresso. Thankfully, amazon sent a substitution instantly, before we returned the unsuccessful machine. Unfortunately, delonghi identified that due to the fact it labored for 10 minutes it experienced not ‘failed out of the box’ and would not switch it, instead they desired us to pay out to ship it to them for a repair service: what an idiotic protocol they have created for their customer support reps.

We experienced a delonghi magnifica for nearly 7 a long time until eventually it began leaking. We decided to improve to this product. This device is superior than the primary magnifica in nearly each and every way. The device alone is scaled-down and thus needs considerably less room on the counter. The device is appreciably quieter when grinding the beans and brewing the espresso. The unit enables significantly bigger espresso cups/mugs to be stuffed. Last of all, the steamer is on the opposite facet of the drinking water container and thus will allow much easier entry to the drinking water. Having said that, our device performed nicely right until the unit unsuccessful to permit beans to ‘flow’ to the grinder. Even though the bean container would be total, no beans would be sent to the grinder and therefore no espresso would brew.

Espresso top quality is quite good. The sum of crema is good. A single of the greatest items about this machine is it is really absolute comfort. You could finish up ingesting far more espresso since it is so quick to incorporate an extra shot to your early morning plan. I also just love to enjoy it operate. It will take about a moment to warmth up to working temperature which beats the 15 minutes of another preferred machine. As the recommendations say it can take a couple attempts to get the machine dialed in for your favored energy and temperature.

Good shots, beautiful, quick to use, beans get trapped. . This machine replaced our jura impressa f7 which we experienced for about 10 years. This machine is a little smaller, and much more peaceful. It helps make a really pleasant espresso, i like the truth that the stregth can be easilty managed. Also like the alternative for applying floor beans. Have manufactured a couple of lattes for guest, which they seemed to take pleasure in. The only downside, as others have noted, is that the beans will need to be contstantly prodded to go into the grinding chamber. I use pete’s major dickason’s blend, which is somewhat oily. I could check out fully dry beans, but then the taste would not be to my liking.

All of these forms of machines appear to be to have a problem with the beans having trapped so just make positive to force them down. I use it to make cappuccino, espresso, and lattes each individual working day.

Execs: would make really very good coffee and lattes. Sleek, excellent-seeking equipment. Drawbacks: (quite insignificant) chrome ‘heating’ plate isn’t going to get heat enough to warmth everything (who cares?). Beans on the ‘oily’ facet really don’t generally feed smoothly from hopper to the grinder. I have owned various automatic devices about the yrs from saeco and delonghi (most lately the delonghi esam3300 magnifica tremendous-automatic espresso/espresso machine) that have acted as our go-to smaller place of work espresso makers. (i’m a latte-holic myself, 4 to 5 a working day, and admitting that is the first action towards restoration i am advised. ) i have a tendency to dress in them out in 2 to 3 yrs since they get a large amount of use, five days a week. But that is to be predicted, at minimum by me, as these truly are meant as house-use equipment.

Working fantastic soon after 3 months. . This was our christmas gift to ourselves, and after a few months we nonetheless really like it. My wife helps make a few cappuccinos each and every morning, and i’ll make a longhi. Perfectly definitely an americano soon after i incorporate some additional scorching drinking water. It can be a bit noisy, which since our kitchen area is suitable subsequent to the bed room implies i have to hold out right up until my wife wakes up prior to i can make espresso. And if i was heading to nitpick, i’d say the water reservoir could be bigger – but i can’t genuinely complain about getting 10 seconds to fill it each and every 2nd or third day. Nice hunting machine, and most importantly the espresso is quite excellent. We’ve probably paid for it previously by averting the area starbucks.
