Life changer for coffee lovers. I’ve been using this machine for a good 4 months now and i love it. I roast my own green beans, and this machine brings out plenty of magic from them. It’s simple to use and you can set it up to make coffee just the way you like it. Then it’s just a button press for perfect espresso. The milk frother works great too and is easy to keep clean, again with the press of a button. This is a life changing machine as there is so little to do in terms of cleaning and maintenance, but do shop around as the prices vary quite a bit.
If you really like your coffeeits a good machine. If you really love your coffee and only the best will do, this ‘bean to cup’ machine is the one to aspire to. Initially the set up seems daunting but persevere. Once completed it is amazingly quick and easy to use. The simple to use graphics just require one touch to deliver a superb cup. No lengthy wait for water to heat up and no irritating need to clean out after every brew. If you want cappucino or latte, the milk dispenser is simple to attach and creates a perfect foam. Easily on a par with coffee purchased in any costa or starbucks. You can even experiment to get exactly the strength and amount in your daily brew.
Having owned a delonghi for about a year, i realised the old method of grind and twist the portafilter was too much effort when you wanted to make more than one decent coffee. Having also used gaggia i realised you could get our very wrong very easily. So, this came along and wow. Puts the coffee snobs to shame. Is not an art, it’s clearly science, defined, with a pushbutton. Impressive machine, the ‘old way’ just seems so primitive. Customise your shot from long to short, fine to coarse, is up to you, and wow without a 1900 design. Enjoy coffee, not the snobbery.

Brilliant, compact machine. . I agonised over buying this. 350 model and was perfectly happy with it. This model was reduced in price during a sale (i paid £399), making it very tempting to upgrade. Part of the reason the decision was so difficult is that i couldn’t find much information online highlighting the difference between the models. Having taken the plunge, i’m noting my findings here in case anyone else is faced with the same dilema. The main difference between this and the esam model appears to be size. When comparing the specifications i had noted the difference in measurements, but this doesn’t really tell the whole story – this unit really does look significantly smaller than the ecam model. To my eyes (and i accept that this is subjective), it looks a bit more modern too.
I totally love this coffee machine. I totally love this coffee machine. We have been using daily for last 6 months and it makes the best coffee, consistently. It looked as if it might be daunting to use at first but not so; once set up (which wasn’t difficult, just follow the manual), it’s a doddle to use and fast. Cleaning and descaling isn’t a problem either – we have hard water and it tells you when to descale. Would wholeheartedly recommend it – worth every penny.

Good but eventually stopped working. I bought this back in may 2009. By 2012 the milk frothing no longer worked and finally today, february 2015 after 7917 cups of coffee according to the statistics, i’ve had to give up on it as the amount of coffee beans it grinds has gone random, sometimes grinding about 4 beans and sometimes grinding far too many resulting in a ‘less coffee’ warning. Between 2012 and it finally dying i’ve had to use a separate milk frother which was fine as it made good espresso perfectly. Thankfully i live in a soft water area as it requests descaling seemingly every 2 weeks (i don’t recommend it but i pretty much happily ignored the warnings for the last 5 1/2 years)i wouldn’t recommend this machine however the replacement i’ve just ordered is the delonghi easm 4200 that just does the coffee side as i much preferred the milk from a separate frother. Hopefully it’ll last at least the same amount of time. Besten De’Longhi Perfecta ESAM 5500.M Bean To Cup Coffee Machine
