With its classic styling and striking black and silver housing, the DeLonghi Retro BAR32 makes quite a first impression. And as you discover this machine’s other elements you will continue to be awestruck. This heavy duty, yet uncomplicated semi-automatic simplifies the brewing process so you can expect this machine to produce a superb cup of coffee time after time.

The stainless steel boiler in the DeLonghi Retro BAR 32 heats up in a flash, and its pressurized style portafilter provides you with the option of using ground coffee or ESE certified coffee pods. Also, you can depend on this machine’s patented Sempre Crema Filter to produce perfect, caramel-colored crema, and its swivel jet frother is ideal for making lattes and cappuccinos.

Additional features of the Retro BAR32 include two thermostats that control both water and steam temperature and a removable 1 liter/35 oz plastic water tank and plastic drip tray that make the maintenance of this machine hassle-free.

The DeLonghi Retro BAR32 includes a measuring spoon and a detailed instruction manual.

The stainless steel boiler contained in the DeLonghi Retro BAR32 heats up in no time and maintains a stable temperature throughout the brewing process, resulting in a great-tasting cup of coffee.

Sempre Crema Holder

This patented Sempre Crema filter enables the Retro BAR32 to produce delicious caramel-colored crema to top off your espresso time after time.

Features & Benefits: Frothing & Hot Water

Swivel Jet Frother

Frothing milk for cappuccinos and lattes is a simple process thanks to the BAR32’s swivel jet frother, which utilizes dry steam and results in a product with a thick, rich consistency.

Temperature Control

A special feature of the DeLonghi Retro BAR32 is its ability to control the temperature of both the water and steam since it has two separate thermostats.

Features & Benefits: Care, Maintenance & Other

Removable Water Tank

The1 Liter/35-Ounce plastic water tank can be refilled from the top anytime during the operation for an endless supply of coffee or steam. This tank is also easy to remove which allows you to fill the tank right at the sink, avoiding spillage on the counter.

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?

Answer by Maggie:

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.

MLH asked:

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?

Answer by Maggie:

For that, I would suggest contacting DeLonghi directly at 1-866-528-8323-they would be your best source of information.
