The Good: This Espresso Machine by DeLonghi serves you with a highly authentic, good-tasting coffee prepared in an easy and convenient way. All it asks you to do is to simply add freshly ground coffee to the filter to get an authentic espresso made just the way you like it. This steam-driven espresso coffee maker is an ideal choice for creating espressos, lattes and cappuccinos at home. It is overall an excellent machine that handles heavy everyday use much better than other espresso makers in the market. The best part about it is the quality of espressos and it’s pretty darn quick. Moreover, it is easy to use and easy to clean. It looks very attractive in the kitchen that also makes it a great price for the quality.

The Bad: This Espresso maker has nothing really bad about it. However, the frother is short so you will need to look out for a short, stout cup to froth with. Note that it takes about 3 minutes for the coffee to start dripping after you turn the machine on. If you don’t give your EC-5 espresso maker enough time to build up heat and pressure, it might look like it is not working.To get some extra steam, run it through an extra cycle just for steam. Another point that you must remember is that this device does not have a water storage capacity so you will have to add enough water each time you use it. Also, the fresher the water, the better your espresso will taste!

The Bottom Line: DeLonghi EC-5 4 Cups Espresso maker is an efficient steam coffee maker that treats you and your guests to a fantastic espresso in minutes.
