Espresso & Cappuccino Machines
1

Charming machine but would not heat milk sufficient. This is a compact nice to use machinehowever we uncovered that the milk was not hot sufficient for our liking.

If you like this product, buy it. I dithered for months before making this purchase and finally committed to buying it based on the design, it’s a beautiful looking piece of kit and has been well thought out. On this point alone it’s head and shoulders above the competition. If you like cappucino the automatic milk frothing container which slots into the machine is essential and beats the diy frothing techniques of comparable machines. A cappucino is produced with the touch of one button and 30 seconds of whirring and frothing. Maintenance is a doddle, the machine tells you when to fill the water tank, add the beans, empty the drip tray and empty the used coffee container. You can read the product details and see that you can adjust just about everything. I particularly like the temperature control as i like my espresso hot. I must admit that the first few cups were a bit of a dissappointment and tasted like something you would get out of a vending machine but the instructions do say that you need to make a few cups before it starts working effectively and thankfully this proved to be the case.

De’Longhi Perfecta ESAM5500.T Fully Automatic Bean to Cup Machine

  • Ultimate bean-to-cup quality espresso/cappuccino machine with professional 15 bar pump pressure
  • For use with fresh coffee beans and ground coffee
  • Built-in traditional steam pipe with plug-in milk carafe for one-touch milk frothing
  • Electronic temperature control, double boiler system, automatic shut-off, active cup warmer and removable drip tray
  • Easy one-touch operation with digital control panel, illuminated icon display and integrated professional burr grinder

This machine produces excellent coffee quickly & efficiently. It is everything that i expected & i thoroughly recommend it. It turned out to be less noisy than some reviews had led me to believe.

I bought this machine on a bit of a whim as i preferred the concept of refreshing espresso straight from the beans. I am also a bit of a gadget mani have been utilizing a tassimo that we have discovered it is pretty superior and can make a wonderful cup of latte and café crema. This is a extremely unique machine. Rather large and usually takes up fairly a bit functioning company. It does glimpse really amazing and appears to be to be incredibly effectively produced. I also invested very a bit of time examining the instruction handbook as there is really a little bit to consider in right after using the tassimo. On the plus side -it can make a really superior espresso and latte. The milk frothing is great and really simple to use. Self cleansing has been nicely imagined out and would show up to pretty productive.

My previous gaggia ceased to be (at final) and ultimately a new machine was justified. This model is so much additional innovative than my old gaggia and is a joy to use with the one particular downside that our coffee usage has greater alongside with the funds for beans. The h2o reservoirs are never ever big more than enough if you like americanos but they are all equivalent so stay with it. The advancements over my final machine are exquisite design, tranquil grinder, digital screen menu and buttons for different configurations, warnings for lower drinking water, total grinds box, descale important and. . Considerably, considerably simpler to clear. This product also has the milk container for effortless cappuccino / latte producing. We drink black so this was an indulgence for visitors but i’m not positive it was worthwhile for us. Only get this edition if you drink a large amount of milky sort coffees since the cleaning is a faff for occasional use.

Still producing good coffee 3 year’s on. We had a gaggia but it broke down and was going to cost as much to repair as this was new (deal on amazon). As other reviews say the plastic isn’t great looks wise but it looks as good now as when we bought it over three years ago. We don’t drink a lot of coffee at home but cappuccino at the touch of a button first thing is so easy – set the machine to come on so it heats up, heat a cup with hot water, attach the milk jug and press the button. Really easy to select the length and strength of your drink if the preset cappuccino is not your thing – just a few clicks and twists. The machine rinses every time it shuts down so flushes any coffee grounds through and prompts you to push the button to clean the milk spout after using the jug. All parts for cleaning are easy to remove and replace. Any issues getting the infuser back in just push from the top down and try again. It might be a chunk of money up front but it’s cheaper than trips to the coffee shop. Ours paid for itself in 3 months.

Reasonable coffee but nothing like hot enough. I bought this machine yesterday and have had a good play with it. Setting up the machine was fairly quick and easy, but you do really need to read the manual. All in all it took about 15 minutes to get it ready to use, then coffee at the press of a button. The taste of the coffee was good and it had a reasonable crème which seemed to get better over the next few cups. As for speed, the machine it reasonable. Start to finish, it takes a fraction under 2 minutes to make a cappuccino. However, the steamed milk option, for making cappuccino / latte, rather less satisfactory. While it makes a good, stable, froth, it’s far from hot enough, making the resulting drink barely more then tepid.

Dad says he has stopped buying this not so quality coffee from a corner-shop and gas stations. Unfortunately wont be able to go into details apart from the fact that they are happy with the buy. They know their coffee so the verdict for this machine could be as unbiased and genuine as possible (at least i hope).

I bought this machine on a bit of a whim as i liked the idea of fresh coffee straight from the beans. I am also a bit of a gadget mani have been using a tassimo that we have found it is very good and makes a nice cup of latte and café crema. This is a very different machine. Quite big and takes up quite a bit working service. It does look very impressive and seems to be very well made. I also spent quite a bit of time reading the instruction manual as there is quite a bit to take in after using the tassimo. On the plus side -it can make a very good espresso and latte. The milk frothing is excellent and very simple to use. Self cleaning has been well thought out and would appear to very effective.

Superb machine- especially if you can find a good price. This was a purchase to celebrate a move to a new home. Definitely an extravagance, but sometimes it’s worth paying extra for things that ‘just work’. This is one of those machines. After about 5 minutes the machine was unboxed, setup and filled with water, coffee beans, and milk. The espressos are fantastic and so easy to make allowing you a great deal of customisation for strength / volume / heat etc. The crema is wonderful, and i have had no problems with temperature. The machine isn’t exactly whisper quiet, but is certainly acceptable for a domestic setting. The cappuccino / latte function also works very well, and my other half often uses the milk steamer to produce hot & frothy milk for night time hot chocolatesoverall, this machine does exactly what you could want it to do, and currently there are substantial discounts available making this machine an absolute no-brainer. You should be aware that it is a fairly substantial piece of kit, and you will need to dedicate a substantial portion of your sideboard to house it.

Having owned a gaggia baby and subsequently a gaggia beans to cup machine, i decided, after eight years, to have a new machine. It was after a lot of deliberation and reading other users reviews i decided to buy a de’longhi esam5500. It arrived very promptly, and seting it up i found the coffee bean container a lot easier to fill than my previous machine, but the water container, which has to be removed to fill, not so convenient with the small filler hole in the top. Unlike the gaggia, the de’longhi flushes all the system on initial turn on, and when it is in standby flushes the coffee delivery pipes through on turn on, which it also does when the machine is turned to standby. The coffee strength and amount is easilly set by the centre knob on the control panel, which also allows, in position one, for your individual coffee amount to be set. The coffee machine works well and produces good coffee every time. The 5500t also makes cappuccino or caffelatte automatically, after filling the milk container and adjusting the froth density. I have used this only once, as my preference is for black coffee, but some of my friends prefer milky coffee, and it did this well.

Best espresso machine so far. I have invested in several espresso machines over the years since i can’t stand instant coffee. Most of the machines i bought had several frustrating ‘features’ which, though they didn’t affect the results (a good espresso or cappuccino), they either slowed down the process of making coffee or created more maintenance than i wished. Enter the de’longhi perfecta esam5500t – a great machine which continues to please – it is so consistent at making the same quality finished product without the frustrations of other machines. I just love the fact that when i come down in the morning, it is on and ready to deliver a great cup. It is one of the fastest espresso makers when it comes to warming up from cold, and it is so easy to manage and maintain. Full marks to the manufacturer, and a 5 star recommendation from a very delighted user.
