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 EC250.B 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 steam), 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 EC250.B 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 a coffee tamper on the ground coffee spoon.

however it is outside of the 30 day return date, every time I make coffee it leaks water over the work surface from underneath

Machine seems to work OK but instructions could be better. I believe we are now using it correctly. The coffee so far has been good but I would prefer it a bit stronger. Read morePublished 9 months ago by ray
sIMPLE TO USE, VERSATILE AS IT TAKES PODS AND GROUND COFFEE, AND QUICKER TO MAKE A REALLY GREAT CUP OF COFFEE THAN YOU WOULD THINK.Published 9 months ago by Stella Sidoli
Really impressed with how easy it is to use. Instructions could be clearer and base a bit heavier for stability but otherwise excellent.Published 9 months ago by Euan J McLeod
I've had this product for about a year now and it's getting quite leaky. There is also a minor electrical fault which makes the lights at the front go a bit random occasionally. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Kevin Buzzard
