I'm surprised at some of the ntageive reviews of this product. Perhaps the reviewers ended up with the occasional lemons. I've purchased two of these one I bought for myself, and the other as a gift, and they've worked beautifully. The milk steamer is very effective (but as noted, the wand is a bit short, which would be my only complaint). It would be nice to have a separate bypass switch between brewing and steaming modes, but the lack of one is common in machines in this price range. Overall I'm very happy with mine and have had no problems at all. At the current price, I'd highly recommend purchasing one. If you want more features and better construction, then spend another $100 or more for a steam pump model, but for fast and easy coffee drinks from a functional, affordable machine, this is hard to beat. January 2010 update: It's been over four years since purchasing two of these coffee makers, and both are still going strong. The one I purchased for myself is used almost daily, and still works perfectly.

How long does it take for the machine to warm up before being able to make espresso? I have read some manuals that specify 30 minutes or so, that's CRAZY. One or two minutes is about all I can wait...

BaristaCorner Hi Polly...you are right, that is crazy. According to our testing, the machine will up to temperature (106 degrees) in 63 seconds. I hope that this helps. Thank you, Eric Black

"Delonghi combination espresso machine"
I love extra foam on top of my cappuccino. Many machines don't provide adequate frothing ability. Can you assure me that this machine provides this feature? I'm looking forward to your response.
Thank you, Jeanette

TechMilanoItalia If you like a lot of foam on your cappuccino, you may want to look at getting something like this: http://www.wholelattelove.com/Capresso/cap_frothexpress.cfm That way you won't "run out of steam" as it were. Then you can just go with the Caffe Nero or a similar machine for brewing the espresso and get the best of both worlds. Hope this helps. =)

ToddS Hi Erika, you said you were looking for a "combo coffee/cappuccino/grind machine". There are combo Coffee/cappuccino machines but none of them have a built in grinder in them like you asked for. If you want a combo machine I am afraid to say that there are not a lot of choices. For a combo machine this is a good choice since it is easy to use and will take up less space than two separate units. You can also get two units for the price of one.

ToddS David, Espresso by definition is coffee brewed under pressure and there are few methods to build up this pressure. The "pump" driven machines are the best and easiest type to use. They use a pump to build up around 130 pounds of pressure for brewing. Other methods of building up the pressure are with steam or with a lever. The Lever machines do a nice job but require much more physical effort and are more difficult to use. The steam machines do not build up the proper pressure and produce the lowest quality espresso. You will find that most of the machines on the site are pump and almost always what we recommend.

I have a Delonghi IFD coffee maker....type: BCO-130T

I would very appreciate to receive from you the french instruction manual. If you don't have the french version, it will be fine to receive at least the english one

Thanks in advance

TechMilanoItalia Sally, are you interested in just making espresso or do you need the dual functionality of Caffe Nero to make drip coffee as well?
