De’Longhi BCO410 Front Loading 15-Bar Combi Coffee Machine : Makes every type of coffee you could wish for.
This is a great machine – the pot + espresso sides make it very handy indeed. The espresso side will only do one double espresso at a time if you want it at high pressure. That said, it seems to push water through the coffee after its run out of pressure quite well, so unless you’re a princess, you’ll get enough out in one go. The milk steamer seems to work really well, although getting milk frothy takes a bit of practice. The pot side seems to work pretty nicely too – it takes size 4 filter papers, but comes with about 5 of them so you can get going right away.
It’s a great machine that can give you all sorts of coffee. Cappuccino, espresso or latte. You do need to practise with the milk foamer. I get loads of froth, my husband is still mastering the technique. It’s can do filter also, although we find we enjoy the otherside more. Can heartily recommend this & would suggest hunting on the andrew james kitchen section for a milk jug & temperature probe, to ensure you don’t take the milk too far.

I wanted a combination filter/espresso machine, and this one seemed to fill the bill. The filter coffee side is excellent; i can’t fault it. The espresso side seems to be very good also, but i suspect that it wouldn’t satisfy an out-and-out espresso aficionado – but such a person would probably never think of buying this kind of machine anyway. The machine itself looks good, and, although the housing is, as you’d expect, plastic, it seems to be quite robust. But it’s a machine to be installed in the home and used with care – i don’t think it would be suitable for office use. As others have said, the instructions are not up to much. I suggest that, in addition to looking at the pictures, which seem to be incomplete and sometimes misleading, you actually read the printed words, which are much more helpful. One minor point: despite what the pictures indicate, no filter is supplied for the espresso reservoir, though a filter is supplied for the filter coffee side of things. I had this point confirmed by de’longhi’s telephone help line.
De’Longhi BCO410 Front Loading 15-Bar Combi Coffee Machine : Its a nice coffee maker easy to use and to clean up didnt give it 5 start simply because the espresso while its delicious its not as dense as some other machines make it, but stil a over all really nice item.
