I got to say that my experience with Delonghi EC155 has been great. It's been one and a half year since i'm using it with no complains. I got my expresso machine for $91.70. Earlier I thought I wasted my money but after its use I realised that the cost is worth buying.Its convenient features are aimed towards those who do not want to spend in cafe. All we need to do is to scoop in the coffee, add some water and flip it on and what comes out is strong and nice coffee with frothy layer of milk.
This Delonghi EC155 is a compact good looking machine.It looks more expensive than it really is because of the metal accents on it. It is a 15 bar pump driven expresso machine. It has stainless steel broiler which is durable so the machine can last for years. The machine has 35-ounce water tank which is big enough.The water tank is removable so we do not need to carry water to the tank. This also makes cleaning easier.
Unit has automatic on/off switch and we come to know when the coffee is ready.It measures 7-1/2 by 9-1/2 by 11-1/8 inches. This combo machine has 2 thermostats for separately controlling water and steam pressure. This machine is packed with self priming operation for fast brewing.This feature helps to save time in preparing the coffee.
The design of the portafilter is such that it has the plastic nob which produces back pressure giving break crema. There is also a portafilter basket holder hidden in the back of machine which helps to keep the kitchen desk clean.
The unit has adjustable swivel jet frother for topping your drink.Now we do not need to stand in queue at coffee shop.Rather we can enjoy a warm,cup of delicious coffee sitting at our home.The coffee tastes better because the pressure which provides for better extraction through the expresso grinds is 4 times higher as that of steam driven machine.
