If you would like to know a little about the many types of espresso machines we sell, this would be a good video to get you started. This video covers the machines we sell and based on your lifestyle, what you like to drink, and ease of use. It will give you an overview of different espresso machines and help you determine which one best suits to your needs. I would watch the video and focus on a particular kind of machine—prosumer, semi-automatic, and super-automatic to decide which kind is ideal for you. Then, you can go and look at individual models to get a better idea of exactly what you want. Of course, if you narrow it down to a few espresso machines and are still undecided, give us a call and we would be glad to help!

My machines isn't pulling water through for the coffee/espresso part. The manual said to make sure the water tank was on right and it's on fine. The steam wand is working but I can't get the water to go through to actually make any espresso. Has anyone had this issue? And if so were you able to fix it?
Cristi, thank you for your post. DeLonghi does all of their own technical support in house-I think your best bet would be to check with them directly. They can be reached at 1-800-322-3848.
I am having a difficult time finding the instruction manual to a DeLonghi BAR 41 espresso machine that I purchased at a thrift store. I don't know how old it is, but it looks brand new. I am hoping that the instructions for the BAR 32 will be similar. Any suggestions?
For that, I would suggest contacting DeLonghi directly at 1-866-528-8323-they would be your best source of information.
