The Gaggia Carezza De LUXE is a semi-automatic machine with a vintage, Italian look, designed to capture the atmosphere of retro cafes. The intuitive push-button interface and pressurized portafilter make for an introductory machine that’s easy to master in no time at all.
The DeLonghi EC155 Espresso Machine is the most affordable pump-driven semi-automatic espresso machine we offer. This little powerhouse packs 15 bars of pump pressure, so getting a good extraction is simple and fast. Delonghi’s patented Sempre Crema Filter helps ensure you’ll get a layer of rich crema on your shots, and the EC155 also comes with a filter basket designed for use with ESE (Easy Serve Espresso) pods to make brewing even simpler. A dial on the front of the machine controls all of the functions on the DeLonghi EC155, from brewing to steaming to hot water. For making cappuccinos, lattes, and other espresso-based milk drinks, the EC155 features a steam wand with an attachment that makes steaming and frothing milk a breeze. Maintenance is also easy, thanks to a removable 35 oz water reservoir, drip tray, and straightforward cleaning cycles.
A dial on the front of the machine controls the EC155 and it features 5 different settings. From left to right, they are steam, power off, power on, coffee/hot water dispensing. Indicator lights are also located around this center dial and will illuminate when the machine is on and when the machine is at proper brewing or steaming temperature.A dependable pump means consistent, well-extracted espresso shots and lots of steam. The DeLonghi EC155 features a powerful 15 bar pump to create a consistent extraction every time. It’s also self-priming—a rare feature for a machine at this price point. This feature means you don’t have to worry about complicated set-up when you first get the machine or after a long period without being used. The DeLonghi EC155 lets you create delicious espresso 2 different ways. You can use the Sempre Crema Filter to brew using your favorite ground coffee beans, and depend on a smooth layer of crema every time you brew. The EC155 also comes with a special filter basket for use with ESE pods for added convenience—no grinding, dosing, or tamping needed.If you love cappuccinos, latte, and other café-style drinks, you’re in luck. The DeLonghi EC155 has a special frothing attachment that helps you steam and froth milk with ease, so you can create almost anything you’d find at your local coffee shop. To steam, turn the knob to the steam icon and wait for the temperature ready light to illuminate (next to the word “OK” on the control panel). Once illuminated, the EC155 is ready to steam. Just immerse the tip of the steam wand in a pitcher of cold milk, turn the steam knob located on the top of the machine, and froth away. Make sure to clean the wand after every use, once it has cooled down.
