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.
