"This is our first Espresso Coffee machine, and having considered various other models, decided to but this as it looked easy to use, and looked stylish. We have been using it for a week now, and are very pleased with it. It heats up really quickly, is easy to use, and looks the part"
"I am a complete novice when it comes to coffee. I have only just started drinking the odd espresso 2 years ago. Thought I would give this a machine a wee go. It does work, but I would recommend using the pods as the coffee making is extremely messy. The tamper thing is rubbish. The milk frother works but again it is messy. If I ever buy another one I would recommend one that automatically delivers the right amount of water rather than trying to guess it as you have to do with this machine. I would also recommend using the 2 cup measuring tool that comes included to give you a 1 cup espresso. All in all you get what you pay for."
"Tired of instant coffee and requiring the genuine article I chose the Delonghi 220.The controls are straight forward and easy to operate(one thing to watch i.e.coffee filters are properly filled) An excellent machine well worth money that does the needful!
"the instructions for this machine are all pictures and numbers to make them able to be understood by anyone . They are not very good . The machine itself is very good , my only criticism is that the steam wand thingy is set so low as to make it hard to use . Overall a very good looking well made and effective coffee maker . The ESE pods are very hard to find on the high street though 2 of the major supermarkets both stock the same single brand , which is very nice ."
"This is the third of these I have bought. The first was used throughout every day for 7 years without a problem but the water here in Leven finally caused it to pass away last week. I now have two in my house. They are simply superb and make great coffee when used with the right product (Lavazza - Black) If you don't mind cleaning out the grits after each use this machine cannot be beaten for the price."
"I bought this to replace a very good Cookworks Espresso machine which accidently broke. This is a little larger that expected and a little more complex to to use in comparison. But Makes a good cup of Coffee."
"I drink black coffee, americano as its known and espresso. This machine is perfect for this. Used with a good quality espresso it makes great coffee. As other reviews have said the instructions are very poor but the machine is easy to use and with a little experimenting comes easier. I have also made lattes and mocha using the steamer. Shame it doesn't come with a steamer jug though. All in all highly recommended for espresso and would recomend for milky coffees but you could do better by spending a bit more money."
"Mainly because the design isnt very good especially when trying to make 2 cups. First of all the group head isn't big enough for 2 shots and the tamper is near enough useless. It's almost impossible to fit 2 cups on the drip tray without the coffee missing the cups. The steamer is quite slow but you can get good milk, not too frothy but it drips everywhere afterwards so am contstantly cleaning up after using this machine. Having said that, the end result is still pretty good for the cost."
