It is easy to grind the coffee. I like that I don’t have to carry water from the sink to coffee maker, I just take the removable tank to the sink and refill it there. The machine makes demi cups of espresso though not large mugs. Many of my friends enjoy the wonderful flavor of the rich frothy brew. It makes a great beverage for its affordable price and I can just relax at home without having to spend extra money at a coffee shop.


What I do not like is that the steam comes out of the top of the machine and it can be quite hot. I sometimes have trouble getting the tray back into the machine after cleaning it. It is hard sometimes to get the cup position properly because of the overhead placement. I personally find the taste of the coffee too weak sometime though my friends do not have a problem with it.

Problems encountered with the DeLonghi EC155 Espresso Maker

The problems of the DeLonghi EC155 Espresso Maker include its inability to meet a user’s expectations given its good reviews from its various users. Another complaint is the tendency of steam to spew out at the top, making a few numbers of users to replace it with other brands or types of coffee machine. Another problem is when you fit the coffee basket into the machine, it can cross threads easily. This can be redesigned by putting the steam wand into a higher level. Other users also complained about the taste of the coffee, that the coffee you made from this coffee machine is not decent at all, that it is too weak.


  1. I’ve just got it to be used with E.S.E. pods but seems the pump is too week. I used Illy pods but the result was a big disappointment – no taste at all. The brewd coffee goes very slow through the nozzles (almost dropping).

  2. I bought this about 10 months ago, and used it daily. It has now failed, unable to deliver water, the same problem as many others have reported. I have maintained it as instructed, cleaning out with vinegar every 2 months or so. This is an unacceptable life for any kind of commercial product. I liked the great espresso, with good crema. It easily makes frothed milk, and the steamer is very easy to clean (just wipe it and let steam for half a second). It has height limitations for cups but espresso cups and shorter cups all fit fine. If you can accept that this thing will last about year, go ahead. If not take my advice, don’t buy one. Build quality has to be suspect (cheap materials in the pump construction?).

  3. I bought the DeLonghi EC155 espresso maker for my mother a while ago, and have now just bought one for myself, taking advantage of a half-price discount.

    This is a pump-driven machine, which can achieve pressures which are considerably higher than steam driven coffee machines, and what this means is that the extraction of the coffee is much more efficient, hence giving coffee with more flavor.

    I am not sure why some people say this machine does not make decent coffee. I have used this machine (my mum’s!) for quite a while now and all my family and friends always comment on how good our coffee is!”

  4. I just got my DeLonghi EC155 Espresso Maker today! I was so excited that I opened it right away and made my first latte tonight! I thoroughly read the instructions and washed and prepped everything the way it said to. The design of the machine looks nice and is a good size. The frothing wand is a little oddly shaped and positioned, but I was aware of that going into it because of the other reviews on here. I was still able to make a good foam and steamed milk for my very first latte ever! I hopefully will get better at the latte making process, but overall the espresso was great and did not take long at all! I am very satisfied and I agree with all of the other good reviews on this product. This is a good quality machine that is easy enough to use for a novice first time espresso maker like me.
