This Delonghi Pump Espresso maker makes a wonderful cappuccino. I bought this espresso maker based on many internet reviews, for the price you can't beat this machine. I would recommend buying a different coffee tamper, the one attached is not practical, just like most reviews said. Also the space for a coffee cup is small, I use a 10oz size and it fits well. It took me about five tries to make the cappuccino just the way I like it. It helps to follow the instructions! In no time you will have a cappuccino the you can be proud of.

Worth every cent
Posted by: GimpyKat from: Long Beach, CA on
I got this for Christmas and I absolutely love it! I've used it every day since I got it, enjoying multiple cups of coffee throughout the day.
Sets up in no time and is a cinch to operate, taking very limited counter space. The milk steamer isn't as powerful as industrial size machines, but it gets the job done.
A must have for anyone who enjoys espresso drinks. It'll pay for itself before you know it.

I really like the espresso which this machine makes. It is easy to use. Two complaints, I had to remove a loose piece of plastic from the frothing tube which was left over from manufacturing. Once I removed it I was able to froth milk easily. The other issue I have is that it takes two runs to make the two cups of espresso. I have to let it warm up, run the pump, wait after the light goes off and run it again. Even if I make more than one set of shots in sequence I still have to follow this pattern.
These may be significant issues to others but I do not mind, especially for the price. Anything competitive to this in espresso quality is more than double the price.

I bought this espresso machine 4 months ago and I could say that this was a very good investment. :) Since the first day I have it I make espressos every day, at least twice a day. The coffee comes nice and strong. I normally use the Lavazza Aroma Creme ( or something like that...). Just an excellent little gadget. :)

decent expresso maker
Posted by: tcochuck from: elmira, ny on
after reading reviews by others and their various issues i decided most problems were user created and would give it a try.
preheats quickly and it makes good espresso's and has plenty of steam power to froth milk easily.
the pucks come out almost dry if loaded and tamped properly, and emptied promptly.
my only complaint is in the length of the steam wand, i have to hold and tilt my frothing cup way up there to get the tip of the wand into the milk well and completely.

We have a very expensive machine that is being serviced and needed something to replace it in a hurry. This machine is incredible. The directions are easy to follow and all you need to do is practice if you are not happy with your results at first. This foams so great that stiff peaks form in the fat free milk. It is worth more than the money we paid and we have saved more than that by now. Use the proper size items and you won't have any problems LOVE IT!

Can't Beat It for Even Three Times the Price.
Posted by: bb916 from: Roseville, CA on
Had it for three months now. Have been using it 2-4 times a day. Works perfectly. Makes a wonderful espresso. The frother is a little weak but for $80 who cares still manages to make a nice cappuccino. Just make sure you use espresso ground coffee; Illy is wonderful! A+++.

Great value for the price

I bought this espresso machine a week ago and I'm amazed by the espresso it makes; it comes with a lot of foam on top and all you gotta do is follow the instructions.

Decent for the price
Posted by: CEL6 from: oregon on
I did alot of research prior to ordering this espresso maker. I tried to watch my money I spent on coffee every week. This has helped although took awhile for me to get comfortable with it. The directions did not help. The two negative aspects of this machine is the frother is not as high as i would like. I tend to spill it my drink because I have to tilt the machine back to removed my cup. The second thing is there is not much room between where the espresso comes out and the base of the the machine. If you have the shot glasses then it is no problem but a mug doesnt fit so I end up putting a little dish. Overall for a beginner I would recommend it but if you are picky with your espresso I would not.

Nice and easy to use
Posted by: Brooklyn9292013 from: Brooklyn, NY on
I love this little guy. I use it almost every day and have had it about 3 weeks now. I still haven't mastered the amount of foam versus steamed milk, but I have gone through three gallons of milk trying. It is fun making my lattes, mochas and cappuccinos though.
Overall, it's a great value for the price, and I have saved ample money from otherwise going to a big name place for my mocha.
I have taken it apart a few time to clean, but after the initial cleaning and taking off of the milk steamer knob, it seems the mojo that made steaming and frothing milk is gone. Perhaps not gone, but it seems that the seal isn't perfect, and thus it seems more difficult to easily choose to make frothed milk or steamed milk. Disclaimer though, it could easily be operator error, and I have had a lot of fun practicing. Whether it's a lot of steamed milk or a lot of froth, I have enjoyed this little device and it's ease of use (and ability to clean easily).
