    The frothed gets pretty messy. It splatters. The placement is not the best. Overall the coffee taste great it brews well. The frothed should have come with a frothing carafe. That may make a difference in the mess. Our did not have a carafe and they are not easy to find. One last improvement would be for this to have a built In coffee grinder. Then it would be a ten star product. Overall I like it.

    Great way to make great coffee at home

    The Delonghi All in One is quite a machine. It’s attractive, feature rich, easy to use, and helps you save money on coffee filters. If you’re looking to switch back from pod based coffee makers, this is a solid choice overall. In the box, you’ll find a small pod like anti-chlorine filter, 3 espresso filters (one pre-installed), espresso portafilter, a measuring scoop with a tamper (to press down on the coffee for the espresso), the 10 cup carafe, a descaler solution for cleaning, and a permanent gold toned filter. Preinstalled in the machine, at least in my case, are the anti-chlorine filter holder, the water reservoir (holds about 10 cups) for the espresso side of the machine, and the drip tray. Some important things to note, before you start making coffee make sure to follow the instructions on initial cleaning and initial brews. This helps eliminate any “plastic” like taste or chemical smell. You will notice this during the initial cleansing brews, but wasn’t an issue once I started making coffee. The drip side filter housing is also where you pour water, from the carafe, for coffee brewing. Just make sure to clean the accessories with soap and water. The water filter also needs to be rinsed prior to installation. The water reservoir (on the espresso side) easily slides in and out for filing and cleaning. Just make sure that you push it down all the way to avoid any issues. All of the prep work only takes a few minutes, thanks to the quick heating of the drip and espresso side of the machine. Starting a drip coffee, with the carafe, only takes a few minutes; similar to other coffee machines. If you’ve never owned an espresso machine, the included owners manual does a great job of explaining all the prep required, and even walks you through the basics of making espresso, cappuccino, and lattes using the machine. On the machine, you’ll find a knob on the left side which turns on the cappuccino system, allowing water to flow through, and can be rotated out of the way of the drip tray when not in use. A clock, which is easily programmed, the espresso on/off button along with the appropriate use buttons for this setting; while the “touch” screen has the drip coffee on/off button and the “bold” coffee button. The touch button for the drip coffee also allows you to set the duration of the warming/carafe heating plate. The default setting worked well for my use at 2 hours, but can be adjusted to fit your needs. You can even set it to “0” if you don’t want the warming plate to stay on after brewing. I’m by no means an expert in coffee brewing, but I found myself watching tutorials and reading the manual to become one. After several tries, I can honestly say this machine makes me wonder why I spend so much on coffee shop visits. The espresso portafilter also accepts the use of “espresso pods” for those that want an even easier option. This was the filter that’s initially installed on the portafilter, and pops out easily to replace with the 1 or 2 cup filters. Making espresso at home is one of the most rewarding experiences, especially when you get it right simply following the basic instructions in the manual. The “pre-heat” process is also much quicker than most single pod brewing machines. After getting a quick walk through of the guide, and from a friend of mine with a similar machine, I was cranking out great tasting espressos, cappuccinos and lattes in a matter of minutes. On the drip side, the included permanent filter makes brewing coffee easy. There is no paper filter to throw out, and emptying the used coffee is easy. The filter even has a nice, easily tucked away, handle to pull the filter out. The carafe has a nice wide opening which also makes hand washing super quick. The filter housing also easily disassembles for more in-depth cleaning. Brewing coffee is a similar experience to other drip coffee makers, which allows for up to 10 cups of coffee. The reservoir on the right side has an easy to see fill line. Filling to the max had the carafe full (at least in my use), at the 10 cup line or just short of it (like 1cm) depending on how much ground coffee you use. Overall, I’m incredibly happy with making coffee from home again. This machine, while at a premium, will have you making coffee like a pro, from the comfort of your own kitchen, bar, or office space. The easy to follow instructions also do a great job instructing you on the basics, and the machine is one of the easiest ones to clean (in my experience).

    Perfect combo for casual espresso drinks and drip!

    |
    Posted .

    This machine is close to having it all when it comes to coffee-based beverages. You get the ability to make delicious drip coffee on a programable auto schedule and to make reasonably good espresso all in one 14” wide, 13” tall, 11” deep counterspace-saving machine! Allow me to start to break down some of the features I appreciate. This machine has a dual heating system so you can be pull espresso shots while actively brewing a fresh pot of coffee. I appreciate this multi-tasking ability as it makes for some nice hosting with guests over-everyone gets their preferred beverage! The drip coffee reservoir and espresso water/steamer wand water are in two separate containers so that you manage and refill the water on each separately as your needs dictate. I am no expert in the making of espresso specialty beverages, but here are a few tips I have picked up in my research that help with this machine. First, the flavor and body of your espresso shot have everything to do with an appropriate grind of the coffee beans and appropriate tamping of the coffee “puck” in the filter basket. Do not be fooled into buying expensive boutique “espresso beans” your first go arounds with this. Learn how to properly grind (or choose good coffee grounds for espresso) and how to properly tamp first—even Folgers taste delicious when done right! There are some great YouTube tutorials on how to accomplish both of these tasks appropriately to pull proper shots. As the frothing wand goes, it works great and is another item I learned on YouTube how to use appropriately. With enough practice, you can make some great Lattes, Cappuccinos, etc. etc. with this machine; certainly good enough to satisfy the cravings of a daily espresso drinker and to entertain and wow your guests! The drip coffee system on this is quite cool and straight forward. It includes a reusable “Gold” filter that I find to be great but can use disposable paper cone filters. It has capacity to make about 12 cups it looks like, but the carafe is demarked “10 cups”. It has a programable timer for when to initiate the brewing, a warmer plate, bold setting, and has an auto drip-stop as most brewers do today to let you poor a cup of coffee mid-brew. All in all, those are all the features I personally care about with a coffee brewer and does justify it as a replacement for a standalone drip coffee brewer! The coffee it yields by the way is delicious; not all drip coffee makers are alike. How they introduce water through the grinds and the temperature the water is heated at maters, and this machine produces some incredibly delicious drip coffee! Altogether, I think this is an excellent package that De’Longhi is offering here. In my opinion, it is an excellent gateway drug into the world of handcrafted espresso beverages; I am already researching higher-end coffee bean grinders, specialty serving glasses, etc. thanks to this machine! De’Longhi is a titan in the industry of coffee and espresso beverages, you will not be disappointed spending your money on this!

    Great all around; complicated at first

    |
    Posted .

    When I first received this coffee machine, I was a bit overwhelmed as it seemed like a really complicated device (and it was a bit at first). Firstly, it is simply GREAT and once figured out is a huge step up from even my Keurig, but also an awesome conversation piece for company — whenever we have any these days…I digress. It also makes cappuccino, lattes, hot chocolate — I even used the brother to make a copycat pumpkin cream cold brew with it and it was sooo good! Just like the real thing! Here are a couple of pros and cons to focus on: PROS Can make more than one cup of coffee at once Metal filter is reusable; no paper filters that are bad for the environment is a plus Around the clock programming to start brewing coffee Coffee taste for each person can be customized Comes with a frother that coffee shops use to make that sweet foamy cream! CONS The frother, while great, does not come with it’s own cup The instructions are a bit confusing (at least for me) at first You may have to go through some trial and error to get good groove going with your espresso/coffee making Overall, while I do looove this machine, I will say, if you’re not an avid coffee drinker, I’d pass on it. It’s great, but you will need to dedicate some time to it, keeping it clean, especially if you’re making lot of cream with the frother (like me!)

    Svelt space saving brewing/espresso machine.

    Pros: * Form factor. I've owned similar machines and I have to say that I quite like this machine's footprint. It doesn't take up too much space and is something that I don't mind keeping out on the counters. * Sleek appearance. This model features nice lines that update the more traditional boxy -but-rounded-corners look. * Touch-screen controls and stainless steel back-lit buttons. The controls are easy to use and easy to clean. This makes for a happy kitchen. Having coffee brew kick off at a preset time also helps. * Great stainless to plastic ratio. The whole machine is not stainless steel. And it doesn't need to be. There is stainless in the right places - high contact zones. This makes cleanup easy as well. * Traditional carafe. The carafe looks like a traditional container. But it does seem to live up to its promise of being spill-free. * Milk frother is a functional attachment that easily froths up your milk-based product of choice and is easy to clean. * WATER RESERVOIR. The reservoir is in a clever spot. If you pull out the front right faceplate which houses the chamber for coffee grinds for brewed coffee, you'll see a channel running along the front. This means you can easily fill the machine with water for brewing AND you can place this machine under your cabinets (as I have done). * Familiar. Basically, it's a traditional brewing machine with which you're already familiar but with the ability to make espresso. Cons: * Top warming plate. Unusually, there is no topside warming plate. Not a deal-breaker, but I was surprised it didn't have one. But you can still place your espresso cups atop and they will get lukewarm from use. Use: We use the coffee brewing portion of the machine most. Daily, in fact, and it works great. Queue up a brew for the A.M. and wake up to the smell of coffee. Espresso, on the other hand, we use less frequently because our schedules have been a little hectic. On weekends, however, we're able to enjoy a nice cup in the A.M. while watching the sunrise from our patio. We also cold-brew coffee and quite enjoy it. But we tend to drink it iced since making the cold-brew (which takes fridge space), diluting it, and re-heating seems to take more time cumulatively than having coffee automatically brewed and ready in the A.M. If you're looking for a machine that makes coffee unpretentiously, this machine can do it. If you need the extra jolts of joy that espresso offers, this machine can do that.

    Satisfying 2 coffee drinkers from One machine

    I have always wanted to buy a espresso coffee machine but was looking at something which can give me option of both Espresso as well as drip coffee as my wife is more of drip coffee drinker. So rather than having 2 machines we kept on researching for last 2 years to have a combination machine. We finally came across this and bought about one month back. Till date can say easily its agood investment keeping both the users happy. The machine has shown good performance till date with just one complaint on espresso side. You have to be somewhat an expert to get right espresso as machine just does not automatically stop once right amount of espresso is dispersed. So if you are not to attentive , the espresso can become diluted or be too strong if you stop dripping too soon. It would have been great if machine had a pre-programmed espresso dripping for one spoon or two spoon coffee powder. Also not sure how difficult or easy it would be once the time for its deep cleaning comes in but as of now satisfied with the product at the price paid.

    My fiancé drinks coffee, and I only drink lattes. This machine not only does both it looks awesome. The coffee maker lets you make regular drip coffee or concentrated “bold” coffee. You can program it to start in the morning. It only makes 10 cups which may not be enough for some (4 cups fills one of my fiancé’s coffee mugs) but it is perfect for us! Unlike other reviewers, we did not experience any issues with the coffee not being hot enough. I took away one star because there is definitely a steep learning curve with the espresso maker. If the espresso is too finely ground (most I tried were) the machine will not push it through. You can remedy this by grinding beans yourself, or using pre-ground ESE pods. I found some on Amazon and am a convert, it makes clean up SO much easier. No tamping or messy grinds! The steam want is also overly complicated , I don’t use it because I have an electric steamer that I LOVE, but tried it out to test the functionality. You have to follow all the steps exactly or water will shoot out of the wand instead of steam. Definitely a design defect in my opinion to have the same wand relit hot water and steam. I personally only use it for hot water... it is just faster cleanup, easier process, less risk of ruining your drink... to just buy an inexpensive stand alone milk frother... love the rest of the machine, especially that you can make espresso while the coffee is brewing with no wait time.

    Awesome dual purpose coffee machine!

    Posted .

    The De’Longhi Digital All-in-One Combination Coffee and Espresso Machine is the perfect add-on for my kitchen. This beautiful black and stainless steel machine fits my need for a regular espresso in the morning and an occasional pot of brewed coffee. The included instruction manuals are very clear about the first time use and regular usage. I use two whisky shot glasses for the espresso pour and my wife likes to use her half height coffee cup directly under the pump. The espresso is very smooth and I appreciate that the manual mentions the importance of tamping the grounds into the portafilter. The portafilter is solid and stands up to the hits for removing the used coffee grounds. I do recommend hitting at a slight angle to prevent popping out the metal pod. My only slight complaints are the leaking under the machine from the espresso drip tray and the frothier could have a little longer reach for my milk container. I also recommend getting some lessons from your favorite barista if you’re not used to using a portafilter and frothier. Pros • Italian 15 bar pressure pump • Dual heating systems for pump and frothier • Dual purpose measuring scoop and tamp • A quality espresso portafilter with one cup, two cup, and pod holders • Ten cup drip coffee carafe • Gold tone drip mesh filter • Antichlorine water filter • Programmable auto start for brewing • Separate water tanks for espresso and drip brewing • Swing arm frothier • Button lights indicate when boiler pump and frothier are ready • Adjustable steam knob for the frothier • Espresso drip tray with float level indicator • Water level indicator for drip brewing • Bold setting for drip brewing • Included descaler package Cons • Small leak from the espresso drip tray • Frothier could be a little longer • Including a couple shot glasses would have made this a complete package Summary Aside from the occasional leak from the espresso drip tray, I am very pleased with the De’Longhi Coffee Machine.

    My husband wanted a drip coffee maker that he could set up the night before to automatically brew in the morning, and we both wanted to be able to make fancy espresso drinks at home. This is perfect so far: makes a great pot of drip coffee, and the espresso part is quite user friendly enough that I was successful my first time out. My only complaint is having to eyeball the volume of espresso: you press the button to start pulling a shot, and it just keeps going until you turn it off yourself. I guess that's good for being able to personalize it to my preference for strength, but it would be nice if it would determine the volume itself. I love it, though, and I love being able to steam milk myself!

    Great combo coffee and espressso machine. Easy to use, doesn't take up a lot of space. Highly recommended. My husband like drip coffee, I like cappuccinos and lattes; great for us both without having to buy separate machines. We have a separate De'Longhi burr grinder for different grind sizes so that's also a must with this.

    I love both having a pot of coffee to have multiple cups of coffee and lattes and cappuccinos through the day and evening. This seemed like a great way to have both with minimal counter space. The idea is great. But... It is a generally good drip coffee maker. It has better than normal accessibility for the water which pours in from the front swing-out on the right side of the machine. The swing-out also houses the filter which can use either the included above-average gold mesh filter or a paper cone filter. It has a "Bold" brew mode which helps for smaller amounts of coffee by slowing down the brew speed. Overall, the coffee brewer is similar to a better-than-average drip machine, but does not compare to higher-end brewers. The Espresso side is completely manual. That means that it pours your shot for as long as you hold the button. This can be both good and bad - you choose your shot size. It steams for as long as you hold the steam button. Hot water is available by pressing both buttons. The included tamper is flimsy plastic and seems like it would be easily broken with normal tamping. The filter cups are double-walled cups which are very forgiving of imperfect dosing and tamping as they will control the pressure quite well for under-dosed shots (but do not compensate for over-tamped/over-dosed shots). The first drawback is that it truly is two separate machines in one housing. While that seems like an advantage at first - you can brew coffee and make espresso at the same time, the problem is in the power limitations. A normal household socket can only supply about 1600W total power. To meet that power maximum, both machines are lower power than a good standalone machine, meaning that they take a longer time to heat up. This shows somewhat on the coffee brewing where it's a bit slow and can be a bit under-temperature during brewing, but really hurts the espresso side where the heating time for water and steam is quite long, and unpredictable. As others have noted, the espresso control lights are supposed to blink until the unit is heated up and ready. Sometimes they do. Sometimes they don't. So you pretty much end up guessing if you've given it enough time to be hot enough. It's easy enough to tell if the steam is hot enough, not so much for your espresso shot. If the light decided to not give proper indication (which seemed to be most of the time), you just have to give it a nice long wait to be sure you're not pouring the shot too cool. The frother is a complicated mess. It has an outer metal-wrapped plastic sheath sealed with an o-ring around an inner plastic nozzle. While this arrangement probably helps make frothing simpler, it also makes cleaning a chore. You need to twist off the sheath, clean the inside of the sheath, clean and wipe the plastic nozzle and put it all back together every single time to avoid nasty old milk going sour inside. I've used simple frothing wands like on a Breville Express or Bambino, with no problems getting good foam, and are *much* easier to clean with a simple wipe-down of a wet cloth. This overly-complicated frothing wand seems to gain little while creating a lot more work. Others have mentioned the drip tray and spills. A tremendous amount of water ends up in the drip tray from over-pressure releases or something. There's a spout into the back of the tray which pours water into it. If you try to dump the drip tray too quickly after making an espresso, it will keep pouring out onto your counter. Because it's a small drip tray, it will easily overflow and pour dirty coffee water all over your counter if you don't dump it after every espresso. Or perhaps it will overflow just enough to pool underneath the unit and make nasty stains. Regardless, you're probably going to end up with spills. I ended up returning this - it's a great idea, but just does not work well and neither side works well enough to justify the price.

    We really like our De’Longhi all-in-in-one coffee and espresso maker. It is attractive on the kitchen counter, easy to use, and makes great coffee drinks. The only improvement we note would be to make the coffee side coffee carafe cup measurements more accurate (filling the carafe to “X” number of cups will yield about 60% of the planned amount using a normal six ounce cup). Making espresso and cappuccino drinks is easy and fun, especially when we are entertaining. We purchased a burr coffee grinder for about $60 to use along with the De’Longhi machine to savor the full drink variety experience and saved hundreds of dollars versus the more expensive “all-in-one” machine on the markets.

    I was going to buy the model that’s a little more expensive but this slightly lower priced model has a better rating. Coffee maker is very nice to look at and makes excellent tasting coffee. Love that it has a permanent filter which saves money on paper filters. The water fill is super easy being loaded from the front. Coffee temperature is perfect which I was very impressed. Lastly, I read a review on BB that a guy stated he never gives anything 5 star but really likes this coffee maker. This maker isn’t a perfect five but it’s not a bellow four star either. This product is a solid 4.5 stars and a Best Buy!
