Super fast delivery and everything works as expected. Really like the product and the seller.
Would have given it 5 stars except i have 1 minor occasional issue. When using the spout for frothing in a pitcher, if you bump it occasionally it will pop off and stop delivering steam. Not major, just push it back in. Just had for about a month so don’t know about life yet, but very happy.

Very pleased with this machine. I’have owned many different espresso maxhine but this is top notch. Easy to use a makes excelent espresso and cappuccinos. Saved yourself money and buy one of these.
It makes espresso much more tasty than starbuck. I can enjoy coffee in cheapest price at home with it every morning.
I am really enjoying this machine. It took me quite a few cappuccinos and lattes to dial it in for my flavor preference, but this is my first home espresso machine, and after upgrading from a bosch tassimo machine, i’m learning a lot. The automatic milk frother is wonderful. I tend to leave it on the maximum foam setting and it makes perfect, fluffy foam. On the lowest setting, you pretty much just get warm milk, no froth at all. Setting up the machine was easy, although i am lucky that i am the only coffee drinker in the house. I have personalized the cappuccino and latte settings for the amount of milk/coffee i like. There is only 1 setting for those. If my husband liked either of those drinks, we might have a problem. I would recommend for anyone that has multiple coffee drinkers is to leave it on the default settings and tweak it from there by either brewing extra shots or something.
I haven’t had to experience too many myself so i don’t have much to compare it to, but i will say that although i do not regret this purchase, i do believe i would have been satisfied with a less expensive machine. There is nothing absolutely astounding about this machine that i would recommend others to purchase it for. I was conflicted between several machines, one of which included a machine for under 100, and im beginning to think i would have been happy with just that. Theres nothing wrong with the machine persay, aside from the programs being confusing at times – sometimes i get a full cup of coffee, sometimes i get a thin layer. Not worth the money i payed for it. Beautiful machine, too bulky and quality just isn’t to parr for the quality i would have expected for the price i payed.
We have had this machine for about a month now and are finding it to be a suitable replacement for our older starbucks sirena which made great coffee but was nothing but trouble mechanically from the start. The delonghi makes a good latte, is attractive, seems solid and is easy to use after you figure out how which the instructions do not describe well. We found a youtube video from a store in seattle that had a gal demonstrating it to a t which was way more helpful and told us things we would have never found out from the manual. It comes with an instructional dvd that would not play in our player. The delonghi has great stream power but you have no control over that power which was an adjustment for us. It makes decent shots and is quick and efficient. We have been making our own lattes for almost 30 years and have had a few machines in those years. This one is going to work out just fine. We purchased it at sam’s club for $299 which looks like a great deal comparatively speaking.
I would’ve been very hesitant about purchasing this item after having read the reviews. A client made me a latte one night and i commented that it was much better than what i could get from my 10 year old starbucks machine. I liked making espresso or lattes, but usually used it about once a month because it was such a hassle. I went home that night and decided to have another and my starbucks machine was totally dead. I asked my client which she had and decided to purchase one. There were so many mediocre and poor reviews that i almost didn’t order it. My client had hers for two years, used it several times per day and loved it. I went ahead and ordered, knowing that i could always return it if there was an issue. Perhaps it’s too early for a review, but after over two months i have been using the machine 4 or 5 times per day. I will agree that the ‘steamed milk’ is a bit different with the frother on here, but i have no complaints about it.
I look forward to using it every single morning.
Love this machinei always wanted a great fancy coffee machine and this one does it’s job without breaking your banklove my foammy cappuccinos and lattes❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️.
There will be better, more complete technical assessments of this unit than i am prepared to write tonight, but i will say that i am delighted with it. I have tinkered with inexpensive espresso makers in the past and never had as much satisfaction as i have gotten from working with this. I am 67 and had my first cup of coffee in 1949 when i was a 18 months old. But this unit has opened up a whole new world of coffee for me.
Excellent price-quality ratio. Yes, you can’t use coffee mug with this machine and this is right. Drink espresso with small espresso cups and americano from coffee mugs.
I have used this unit for over a year without any problems. I do agree with one of the other users that the instructions were somewhat cryptic. This is not an apple product. The initial set up is not intuitive. Read the instructions more than once and go for it. The price is reasonable and the performance is as expected.
Didn’t buy mine here, but will pitch in. Lovely machine when it’s running properly. A pig of a machine when it’s not. Bought mine nov 2013 and have replaced three double shot basket and one milk hopper. As for the latter, you need to be scrupulously clean. Blast it with steam after every use and soak the black part of the unit in hot water often to keep it working. Mine’s been papmered and descaled regularly. The pump appears to work ok, but the machine really struggles if the coffee is too fine a grind. Currently talking to an ace coffee provider whi is going to send me samples of different grades. Machine is easy to strip and clean.
First espresso machine and it does exactly what it’s says it suppose to do. Makes a mean cappuccino👍👍👍👍👍. Get the coffe beans you love and you’ve got a winner.
I was hesitant about giving 5 stars as i never do, but we love this. After living aboard we decided that we couldn’t drink regular coffee in the mornings. I started looking for an espresso/cappuccino maker. I picked this one out but after reading some reviews i was hesitant. I looked at other machines in the same price range. I ended up buying this one and love it. We make 2-4 cappuccinos every morning. We haven’t had any problems yet. I did carefully read the directions and make sure the settings we right for us. I did take about 3-4 days to start making great cappuccino but the manual does say that.
I’ve been using this de’longhi ec860 espresso machine for about a month. We use it daily and it’s so easy to use; my husband can just do his own now. . It’s very easy to program to your own liking. I also like the fact that you can use it manually if you want to get creative. I’ve read negative comments and i’ve not had any problems. One of the issues was the espresso wasn’t hot enough but i just preheat my cup and it’s very hot. I highly recommend this machine.
I have had nothing but a great experience with this machine. I have had none of the problems some reviews complained about. It is super sad to use but read the instructions and follow the setup procedures and options before beginning. At the touch of the button i can automatically make capuchinos and lattes with the attached reservoir. Likewise i can use the manual steamer to steam my own milk and make latte artthis unit goes from off to hot and making great coffee drinks in under 15 seconds. It will make several drinks in a row with the large water reservoir. With the adjustable removable tray it fits and cup i choose to stick under it.
This is an extremely well-built piece of equipment for anyone wanting to become a home based barista. This machine was created for all those individuals (myself included) intimidated by the complexities of using a traditional espresso/cappuccino machine. The instruction manual is well written and easy to understand. With a little practice, you’ll be creating your own homemade cappuccinos in no time at all.I use my machine daily, and i really love it.
It was exactly what i was expecting.
I purchased this machine last summer when my very old estro profi espresso machine bit the dust. After some trial/error with this product (the instruction manual was not very user friendly) as well as watching you tube videos of a local coffee shop that tested the product it works great. The espresso can be adjusted to taste (shorter flow of water for a stronger shot) which i do like as my spouse tends to like his espresso drinks more potent than i do. Overall, a good machine and delivers decent espresso shots.
