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

    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!

    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.

    Recently purchased the EC270 from Amazon UK following numerous problems with an old coffee machine (well known Italian manufacturer starting with 'G'). The EC270 arrived last Monday and has been performing extremely well ever since. Excellent coffee with a superb 'crema' that matches anything you will see in top High Street coffee houses. The steam nozzle also produces good quality foam on the milk.

    I would like to stress the importance of washing all components and the water container etc before you use the machine - also ensure that you 'flush' the system several times before making your first coffee - the instructions guide you through this procedure.

    A previous owner reported leakage problems from the water tank - just make sure that you locate the base of the tank correctly and ensure that the base seal is secure and you should not have any problems - my unit has not leaked at all.

    A final piece of advice - make sure you 'tamper' the coffee correctly and then make sure the filter holder handle is pushed well over to the right when you prepare coffee - this will ensure a great 'crema' every time.

    Top marks for this machine - it performs better than some machines 2 to 3 times more expensive.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!!

    Before buying this coffee maker, I read all the reviews and I narrowed it down to the ec270 or ec330s. My budget was up to around £130, so my options were reduced, but this looked like excellent value for money, despite the negative comments from some. I noticed the negative comments were pretty much all based around 2 problems that I'll comment on below. I paid £88.97.

    I realised all the current Delonghi machines in the price range have the water tank with a valve at the bottom, so could all be potentially prone to leaks if the seal fails. However, I always fill with filtered water from a Brita jug, so I never remove the tank, (even on my old, and now sadly dead, Cafe Treviso, which didn't have the value at the bottom) therefore I don't think this will be a problem for me. However, just in case, I have for now placed it on a folded tea-towel and it will be sent back immediately if it does leak. So far so good, no leaks after 3 days and I'll update here if it ever does.

    The other problem often mentioned was the strong plastic smell. Although the instructions for the ec270 don't mention it, I ran 2 full tanks full of water through the heated machine, through both the boiler outlet and the milk steamer, before making coffee. I haven't experienced any odours at all.

    Regarding cup size, it's an espresso machine, it'll easily take espresso cups and anyway, the coffee shops use espresso shot cups and pour into the larger cup afterwards. However, we measured them clearance under the filter outlet in a shop and the EC270 is higher than the ec330s. To get a latte mug under, just remove the drip tray, easy.

    So what about the actual coffee?
