User Manuals for your DeLonghi Pump Espresso Machine
Great choice for the moneyReview by Marc
Quality Price Value
Nice machine capable of producing excellent results once you get the grind, tamp and frothing down.
The wand is a proprietary design and I recommend you read the included frothing instructions as the best technique is somewhat different than what would be used with a "normal" wand.
My only criticism would be the wand location. Depending on the frothing container If it protruded further it would make use a bit easier for frothing different quantities/depths of milk. Even with that flaw decent results are possible with a bit of trial and error.

Good espresso, easy to use, little messyReview by Ryan
Quality Price Value
This espresso machine was given to me as a gift. I've worked as a barista for 2 years using both fully automatic and traditional semi--automatic machines. Obviously no entry level machines is comparable to a commercial machine. But, I have enjoyed being able to make great tasting shots and decent lattes and cappuccinos at home.
Pros: The machine is easy to use and easy to clean with 3 simple buttons (on, espresso temp, steam temp) and a lever to activate steam. The removable drip tray is large enough to capture a good amount of water and coffee mess before it needs to be emptied. The unit heats to espresso temperature in about 5 to 7 minutes (shots come out about 180 degrees). Once shots are pulled, the unit can heat to steam temperature in just a minute or so more.
Cons: portafilter head is smaller than commercial and I haven't found a tamper that fits other than the one that comes with it. The steam wand is weak, but from what I've read on entry level machines this is not unique to the Delonghi. The coffee grounds are loose and wet rather than forming a nice dry puck., making it difficult to knock clean. To get a good froth from the steam wand you have to purge the wand for 2 or 3 seconds to rid the water in the line and get a nice steam. You'll also have to swirl your milk quite a bit to get smooth cream foam rather than big bubbles.
Final note: worth the money for no frills machine, especially if you want to enjoy straight espresso more so than lattes and cappuccinos. With some practice you'll be pleased.

Operational anomalies; poor customer serviceReview by fred
Quality Price Value
Coffee was great but lots of operational anomalies; indicator lights blinking on and off, steam giving out. We returned the machine finally after several attempts to query De' Longhi customer service about these issues. Completely non-responsive and unhelpful. Very frustrating.
