Also, the ECO310 has been discontinued! I wish I had a recommendation for a semi-automatic that also has a coffee brew feature, the closest would be a superautomatic machine like the Saeco Minuto: https://www.seattlecoffeegear.com/saeco-minuto-class-automatic-espresso-machine-coffee-maker
Hope this helps!
"if more coffee must be prepared after the milk has been frothed, allow the boiler to cool first otherwise the coffee will be burned.
To cool it, position a container under the filter-holder spouts (fig. 11), press the steam button and allow water to run out until the steam function light switches off: then prepare the coffee."
When the steam button is pushed no water comes out of the filter...it's not supposed to; if it did, you couldn't steam milk. I tried pushing the coffee button to start the water flow, but to no avail; the steam light stays on. I tried opening the steam knob to get water through the steam nozzle, but that didn't get the steam lite to go out either. In fact, that lite comes on when you push the steam button and stays on till you push it again. I'm trying to figure out how to cool it and it's got me stumped. Anybody got any ideas?

- A Delonghi which does NOT leak!Review by Will
Price Quality Value
But I'm impressed. Having had it for 24 hours and made 8 cappuccinos, it has NOT leaked one little drop! OK I know, given time, this might happen, and reading other reviews it might suffer other problems in the next couple of years.
It makes great coffee (as far as a newbie can tell). It's more work and a lot slower than the Dedica which could produce coffee within a minute of being switched on and was semi-automatic. This is MANUAL despite what it says!
Being around 20% cheaper than the Dedica I can put up with things that are less than perfect. It has a stupid little 'tamper' built into the machine which can do no more than level off the coffee in the portafilter. Go out and buy a proper tamper. It needs it. The water will come through too fast to make a great coffee without being properly tamped - you see, as a newbie, I'm learning!
But I'm happy to recommend this as an entry level machine to get the espresso experience into your household for the first time! (Posted on 1/12/2017)
