Steam-driven, the DeLonghi EC5 can serve you a cup of flavorful espresso or rich and creamy cappuccino.

It has all the basic features that ensure safety when pouring or serving a cup, faster brews, and easy cleanups.

  • The EC5 has an adjustable steam emission to ensure safety and make hot and flavorful cups readily available. Made in Italy, it comes with all the essential features to make those good Italian cappuccinos and lattes.
  • The 4-cup capacity is good enough for personal use or sharing with a bunch of workmates or friends who are also coffee lovers.

    Exterior Features

  • With a 2-cup adaptor, you can pour yourself a cup of espresso or cappuccino at once. The swivel jet frother will give your cup a frothy top that's mess-free.
  • The espresso and cappuccino maker also has a patented safety cap, drip-free spout, and stay-cool handles to make pouring yourself a cup easy and safe. Cleanups won't also be a chore with a removable drip tray.

    It comes in a not-so-complicated design that's easy to figure out. It doesn't have all those buttons, which can be so confusing at times. Though simpler compared to other machines, the design is nonetheless well-thought of.

    The swivel jet frother and its handles allow for easy serving without making too much mess or risking yourself to burns. The heat-resistant handles, drip-free spout, and safety cap make it very convenient to use even for those who are on the go.

    The common complaint involves the frother of the EC5, which, according to some consumers, do not always work well. Some have even bought a frothing pitcher to replace the inefficient frother. The steaming wand can be a bit difficult to use, though after some time, users may finally figure it out and get used to it.
