Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: De'Longhi Icona ECO310.W Pump Espresso Machine - Pearl White (Kitchen & Home)
I had considered buying an expresso machine for some time, being a Latte lover. Had purchased a Tassimo machine but could not get a decent hot cup of coffee out of the thing. although it produced other drinks, chocolate etc, the tea was, as my wife said, awfull. I returned it as faulty, drinks not hot.
I decided to go for a true ground coffee machine and chose the Delonghi Icona. Have not looked back, the ground coffee is really the only way to get good results. The coffee is hot and the milk frother makes all the difference, although the temperature of the milk can be judged by feeling the temperature of the jug, I have purchased a thermometer and it does make a difference. So now I enjoy excellent coffee at the right temperature.
The machine will also accept eeze pods and, although using the pods supplied with the machine gives a fair coffee, I will not be buying any more as the ground coffee is best.
An added bonus is that it looks good too.

How long have you had it when you made this review? Mine didnt last 8 mths before developing a fault and at the 15mth point the thermostat gave up the ghost. Waste of money..and they leak from every orifice too

I can only think that you were unlucky and received a faulty unit. Mine still fine after a year.

Gee 'J', you can spell, my hero . . . not. There are of millions of people that can do many different things a whole lot better than you can. Not being an egotistical, patronizing little prick being near the top of that list.

what brand/type of grind do you recommend? Just got my and thought I'd try the pods first, but don't like them. I bought the right ones but they just don't seem to fit right as I seem to be getting watery shots. The first try work beautifully, but very watery since than. Oh and do you still have yours, still working fine?
