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.W 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.W 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.
