Product Description

Product Description

A pump machine is the most traditional and well-known way to make espresso, using the filter holder and ground coffee. This simple but effective 15 bar pressure machine will make both espresso and cappuccino and is the ideal introduction to the world of coffee, as well as a hands-on Barista experience at home.

The De'Longhi EC270 can be used with both ground coffee and ESE (Easy Serving Espresso) pods, for added convenience. It is simple to use, with just three buttons required for operation (on/off, coffee and cappuccino), and there is no limit to the number of cups that can be made.

The cappuccino system involves a built-in manual steaming arm that mixes steam, air and milk to produce a rich and creamy froth.

The EC270 includes a self-priming system that keeps the machine ready for use at all times and two separate thermostats to control the water and steam temperatures. The transparent water reservoir has a capacity of 1 Litre.

The machine has a cup warmer to pre-warm your coffee cups as well as a Crema filter holder, a removable metal drip tray and an incorporated coffee tamper.

Box Contains

  • 1 x EC270 Pump Espresso coffee machine
  • 1 x Crema filter holder
  • 1 x Measuring spoon
  • 1 x Full product instructions

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great coffee/espresso 12 May 2008
    By Mr. K. P. Rogers VINE VOICE
    I am very impressed with this coffee maker. The coffee is exceptional the machine looks good, too.

    It is important that proper ground espresso coffee is used if you want the best results. I have used mine for about three months and have made coffee on an almost daily basis. It's quick and if you're really pressed for time use the ESE (Easy Serving Espresso) sachets (I got a packet of 18 free inside the box with the machine, worth about 4,50).

    The price of the machine is very reasonable, too.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!! 19 Aug 2008
    I was looking for a reasonable espresso machine with milk frother for making lattes/cappuchinos at home. I work in a coffee shop and know what good coffee tastes like. I did buy a cheaper machine but it was terrible so it went back. I am very impressed with this machine, you get a lovely crema on your espresso, just like the proffesional machines, and the milk frother works splendidly, gives a very nice firm froth that lasts.

    I would recommend this machine to anyone, its very simple to use, and not noisy at all like some others, yes you hear the pump for a few seconds but its quite quiet, would have been nice to have gotten a jug with it but can pick these up cheaply!

    By Nicole
    I was delighted to get one of these last Christmas, and found that as well as looking good, this machine makes very nice coffee indeed. However, after a few weeks it started to leak, so back it went to the shop (it wasn't bought from Amazon) for a replacement. The replacement smelled of new plastic, which I didn't think was a problem, until the coffee started to taste of plastic - and the taste got worse and worse over a month or so. No matter how much I washed the receptacles and bits and pieces, it got worse, and tainted the coffee. Back to the shop, where I got a couple of machines out of their boxes, and gave them a good sniff. One had the same plastic smell, the other didn't, so I asked for that one as a replacement.

    This was all a bit of a faff - although the machine is very solidly built, there does seem to be a quality control issue at DeLonghi so really I should take more than one star off - but like I said, it does make extremely nice coffee.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Get me a towel!!!! 7 Sep 2009
    By geedee
    I bought the DeLonghi Ec 270 for espresso, cappuccino etc and it looks and feels great.
    I loved the finish and weight. It made good coffee but right from the outset water leaked copiously from the reservoir seal and flooded the worktop. After a few such floodings I assumed it to be a one-off faulty machine. . No trouble in getting it replaced but exactly the same happened with the new one. I checked everything, got others to look at it just in case it was me (I'm technically competent usually) but the conclusion was (in our humble opinion) it could be a design fault. Such a pity, because it looked like a great piece of kit at the price.....and rendered 'unfit for purpose' by one dodgy seal. I called DeLonghi customer support and spoke to a very nice girl who said that there is no note of a 'known fault' with this machine. Funny that, when I'm reading several similar experiences on the reveiws!! Potential buyers beware, no use asking DeLonghi because they don't seem to be aware of the issue. I'm now thinking 'GAGGIA'. At this point I would have gone and made myself a nice cup of coffee.........sigh

    4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasing coffee machine 31 Dec 2008
    We are on our third machine, the first was passed to a member of our family, the replacement machine was problematic, too much pressure built up and it threw coffee everywhere, after discussions directly with De'Longhi it was eventually agreed to supply a replacement machine which operates so much better than the previous 2 machines. Makes great coffee, easy to use, looks good, excellent value for money.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good coffee, Good machine! 4 Nov 2008
    When making up our wedding list, my wife and I felt that a good coffee machine was essential to a happy and long marriage, so we opted for a gaggia cubika. Unfortunately, the cubika felt really cheap and badly put together when we got it out of the box, so it went straight back in. I can't comment on the coffee 'cause we didn't try it but we decided to go for this delonghi instead. It's very easy to use, the coffee is good (comparable to 'the in-laws' much more expensive Gaggia) and the frother is very effective. I use it every day and so far have no complaints. It also looks nice in our kitchen!!

    1.0 out of 5 stars Disaster! 27 Mar 2009
    By bali
    I have purchased this machine few months ago. At first, it looked ok. However, after I started using I noticed that the steeam maker was spraying so much water. Then the water tank started leaking. I have replaced it with the same model. The replacement's steam hose was also spraying loads water instead of steam! I returned the replacement and gladly received my money back.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Good but not as good as i thought 9 Jan 2009
    This coffee maker looks good left out on the kitchen worktop, but beware when you next go into the kitchen you may find a puddle on your floor and the worktop. After filling the water tank then making just one cup of coffee, i went back to find that water had leaked all over the place. Therfore i have now got into the habit of making sure i empty any remaining water out of the tank. Not that ideal when it is supposed to hold ample supply. Its not a hardship refilling it everytime i use it and that is everyday. but i may as well have just bought a hob top coffee jug. As i said it looks good though.
