If you’re in the market for a great quality cappuccino and espresso machine, at an affordable price, then the DeLonghi EC155 Manual 15 BAR may be just what you been looking for. This high quality De’Longhi coffee machine allows you to make both very easily. It’s very difficult to find a machine that does both so well, at such a great price.
The De’Longhi EC155 15 BAR pump espresso and cappuccino maker allows you to use ground coffee, fresh coffee, pods, cappuccino, and even hot chocolate! You can do basically anything you want to do with this machine, to make the perfect drink of your choice. This unit has a special patent dual filter system that allows you to do many varieties, even make separate drinks at the same time. That is a cool feature, and one of the big selling points for me. The frothier allows you to create rich creamy cappuccino or latte, and also works great with hot chocolate for the kids.
The De’Longhi EC155 also has a dual thermostat feature, that allows you separate water temperatures. This feature seemed important, but I didn’t realize just how important it was until I tried it. I quickly found out that the main reason that this machine allows you to create so many different drinks is because of the dual thermostat feature. Another great feature worth mentioning is the self priming technology. This feature allows you to make your espresso or cappuccino extremely fast. I was surprised at the speed that this machine operates at, in no time you’ll have your drink ready. It’s way faster than say, a regular auto drip coffee maker.
Another really nice feature of this machine is that it has a large water capacity, allowing you to make up to 10 espresso shots before you need to add more water. The back is clear, so it’s easy to see when you need to add more water. The unit is small in comparison to other machines that I was looking at. This De’Longhi EC155 15 BAR, is such a space saver, at its largest point, it’s less than 12 inches! That is somewhat amazing to me, because most of the other machines that I researched were much larger. The outside finish is beautiful stainless steel and black, which fits in great in my kitchen with my other stainless finished appliances.
If there is one thing I would change about this machine, it would be the frothier wand. It’s a great feature and I’m glad that it has it for sure, but it is a little low to the counter. I had to find a special cup to fit under since its so low. This isn’t a big deal, and you can pick up cups that fit the clearance pretty easily, its just lower than a normal coffee cup size.
The main selling points for the De’Longhi EC155 15 BAR (15 BAR is the pressure that it pumps for those who wondered) are the following:
Its economical, well constructed, and by far the best machine that you can find in its price range. There isn’t another machine that is even close to this one for the price. The DeLonghi EC155 Manual 15 BAR’s instructions are very accurate and descriptive, and should answer any questions that you may have. I found operation of the machine to be very easy, and this is my first machine that isn’t just a plain old auto drip coffee maker. I’m sure you’ll fall in love with it, just as I have. Tons of fantastic reviews sold me on this machine, and I’m glad they did! Great job De’Longhi for building such a good machine, at a price that we can actually afford.
