Have only used coffee granules and the results are great. Will try the pods, when i can find who stocks them.
Makes a great cup of coffee. The best home coffee machine i’ve ever bought and i’ve been through quite a few. I agree with a few other reviewers, the steam arm is a little short but no problem it froths my milk perfectly and that’s what matters.
- Does exactly what you need it to.
- Works well and value for money
- Solid, simple machine that produces great shots, IF you have input into the coffee grind, dose, tamp etc.
Perfect espresso, cappuccino, latte i haven’t been to a cafe for a long time. This is an excellent coffee maker (for the price). I got it a month ago and it’s been working without any faults since then. It’s perfect for making single/double espressos, but also cappuccinos and lattes. It takes a while to learn how to make a proper cappuccino frothed milk – please read the instruction manual carefully, it explains very well how to make it correctly (from my experience it takes about 2-3 minutes to froth and heat the milk depending on how much milk or foam you want in your coffee, please get yourself a thermometer to check if the temperature is between 65-70 degrees). Once you read and understand it you will probably never go back to a cafe.
Great machine for the price. I wanted a coffee maker to replace the cafetières that keep breaking – and also to have the option to make espresso, but i didn’t want a big machine that would take up a lot of space on the kitchen counter and i didn’t want to spend too much money (only me that drinks coffee at home). This delonghi fits the bill perfectly, not too large, not expensive, a nice, simple design – and it makes great coffee. Some people have complained of the coffee being lukewarm, but this doesn’t happen if you warm the machine through first – as advised in the instructions. Another thing to consider is the type of coffee you use as this will affect the outcome. Generally, grinding your own beans will produce the best taste but you can use pre-ground coffee and still get a good result. The steamer is a bit basic but does its job. All in all, very happy with this purchase.

Bought as birthday gift – minor issues like can’t fit anything other than an espresso shot cup. Bought as birthday gift – minor issues like can’t fit anything other than an espresso shot cup under the coffee dispenser. Good value despite minor niggles.
I have only used this for espresso, but it is excellent. From what i have read, making espresso is an art form but using lavazza medium roast and timing at 11-12 secs for a single seems to do the trick. Only problem i have had is using the double holder – never seems to give an equal volume to the two cups. Besten Delonghi EC155 Coffee Maker Einkaufsführer
