De’Longhi Delonghi EN520 – Fantastic product with a few niggles

Great little machine, highly recommended. This is my second coffee machine the first being a krups dolce gusto melody 2, which was fine for 18 months, but so difficult to clean that we eventually had to throw it away. Delonghi hardware appears to be better designed and built from higher quality materials, which helps to explain why it is times the price, and the fact that it uses real milk unlike some pod based rivals means that lattes and cappuccinos are in a completely different class. If anything espressos are better too and if like me you like your lattes nothing beats a one touch coffee machine that makes the whole thing from scratch to coffee shop standards in about a minute.

And it was great to feel like a proper barrista but it broke. I used to have a rancillio silvia – the most professional of the proper italian espresso makers for the home, and it was great to feel like a proper barrista but it broke down all the time (maybe needed repairing six times over four years). So i was a bit snobby about pods and also about supporting nestle as a well-known unethical company but this product really is fantastic – it’s so great to have a reliable creme everytime, and the milk frother is ideal. I’m now trying to persuade my office to get one.

  • very happy with this product
  • A well designed coffee maker
  • Great Coffee Made Easy

How to get the temperature right. Replaced my old magimix with one of these recently and yes indeed, if you use milk straight out of the fridge, the end result is definitely not hot enough. There are however a few things you could try:1. Dispense the espresso first. Makes it quite a bit hotter2. Warm the milk up in the microwave oven for 30 seconds before pouring it into the milk container. You could also just leave the container filled with milk on the machine all the time therefore keeping it at room temperature but i appreciate some people may consider there to be health or hygiene issues associated with that solution so adopt this at your own risk. You will have to wash the container daily if you do this.

We’ve had about 3 cappuccino machines and after using them a few times they have been stuck in a cupboard never to be used again. This is a fantastic bit of kit and so easy to use. It cleans up very easily and the removable milk ‘tank’ is a great idea. Out of the 16 assorted coffee capsules that came with it, there was only about 2 we didn’t like. We are quite fussy about our coffee but have not found a reason to complain once with this machine. We would highly recommend this machine.

Merkmal der Delonghi EN520.W Nespresso Lattissima Plus Coffee Maker – White

  • Compact Nespresso pod coffee machine in white with powerful 19 bar pressure
  • Fast 40 second heat up time
  • Patented single touch froth dispenser with removable milk jug
  • Automatic controls with illuminated programmable keys to chose your favourite drink (espresso, long coffee, cappuccino, latte macchiato)
  • 16.7 x 31.9 x 25.3 (L x W x H in cm)

I bought this machine about 1 months ago and i can’t praise it enough. Looks great on my counter top and takes up hardly any room. We drink mostly milk based drinks in our house so first think i did was change the settings for the latte macchiato as this only gives you an espresso size shot of coffee. We use the lungo pods and i set it to dispense a lungo shot, then i adjusted the amount a milk. I now get a nice big cup of latte each morning. Some people complained about the coffee not being hot enough. I always prime the machine before the first use of the day. This means running just the lungo shot through without a pod in it, i then press the clean button on the milk container, this warms the cup before i press the latte button(obviously discard the water first). Coffee comes out nice and hot.

Wouldn’t be without this great machine. We’ve had a lattissima plus for over a year and we love it. My husband wasn’t keen to go the capsule root as he loved the whole process of making the coffee with our gaggia, however he was an instant convert. It makes the best coffee, cappuccino and lattes i’ve ever had anywhere with the thickest foam (it’s adjustable if you prefer thinner). I love the fact that the best coffee i can get is in my own kitchen. There are lots of different capsule choice and i’m happy they have added the flavored ones (caramel, vanilla, chocolate, and the new chocolate/berry which has a fab raspberry flavor) and you can also add cocoa powder, flavored syrups and warmed up eggnog which was a favorite over the holidays, if you like the flavored ones. The muddy, burned coffee i used to get at coffee shops is the a thing of the past. It’s a no nonsense no fuss sturdy machine easy to clean and heats up quickly. I would agree with some, the lattes and cappuccinos are not quite hot enough but 20 seconds in the microwave is a small price to pay. You should empty the drip tray everyday as water does accumulate more than you would think also the capsule holder. Besten Delonghi EN520.W Nespresso Lattissima Plus Coffee Maker – White Bewertungen

I have has this a couple of years now and it still works fine every day (2 -3 cups a day). My only complaint is that to get a strong cup you really need to use 2 pods per cup which is expensive. Tip – try lidl pods – my favourite & the strongest ones i have found. The milk frother is just fab, making a nice cup of foamed milk virtually every time – sometime after cleaning it doesn’t make the milk quite as frothy (tip – do a cleaning cycle before making your first cup after the container has been cleaned). It does seem to want to be de-scaled quite often which is a bit of a pain to do, but nothing serious. Basically for a quick cappuccino it is fine, but maybe not for coffee connoisseurs, but almost as fast as making a cup of instant.

Bought as a gift for my husband. Who loves it, makes great cappuchinos. We have had it for a year now, still works really well. All the “bits” go in the dishwasher which is a bonus.

Fantastic machine which i am still learning about. Fantastic machine which i am still learning about. Still trying to reduce or eliminate the abundance of froth but i will get there hopefully.

I love this machine so much. I love this machine so much, so easy, decent flavours of coffee, although i only really like the strongest coffees nespresso do. The lattissima plus is very convenient and easy to use.
