with 15 Bar Pump Pressure and Stainless Steel Espresso Boiler

The DeLonghi EC155 is classic espresso maker in black. Though it doesn't have all those advanced buttons of a high-end coffee machine, it has the basic features needed for a hot, good-tasting cup of espresso based drinks. It can make a good blend out of ground coffee or "Easy Serving Espresso" pods. The Cappuccino System of the espresso machine will give you a nice froth by expertly mixing air, milk, and steam.

Interior Features

  • As with other espresso and coffee makers, the EC155 also features the self-priming system. This means that the machine can easily be used any time and with much convenience. You also have the option to use coffee grounds or ESE pods, with the 2 in 1 crema filter holder.
  • The adjustable steam emission will make sure that you can enjoy warm, and flavorful blends as you pour yourself a cup. The 15 bar pump pressure also makes servings easy and fast.

    Unlike other espresso machines, the EC155 is fairly easy to use, minus the overcomplicated buttons and programs. You can enjoy espresso cups with short waiting periods, as it heats up pretty quickly. Aside from coffee grounds, ESE pods is also compatible with the machine. It even has a 2 in 1 filter holder. It is easy to clean. The black finish also makes stains from leaks and spills less visible. It gives off enough steam, once you get used to using the wand.


    Compared to other coffee machines, it is cheaply built with plastic components. There's not enough space or clearance for the cup, which means you can't use taller cups or serving may be difficult. The steam can be clunky, which requires some getting used to. The wand is also short.
