This machine is coffee heaven. I absolutely love it.
13 April 2018
This is the second De'Longhi machine I have owned. I bought my first which was the DeLonghi 5600 Perfecta over 5 years ago and it still makes a great tasting coffee, however the temperature of the water wasn't as hot as when new so when I saw this new ,machine on offer from amazon I just had to get it. My first machine has found a new home by the way and is still making great coffee. When I passed it on it had produced nearly 6000 cups of coffee.
This machine is stunning to look at, I just love the black which compliments my kitchen and other appliances. My old machine was great but this one is a huge step up in terms of performance. It holds more water, it is quieter, it heats up quickly and holds nearly twice the amount of beans. It also has a replaceable filter so great for hard water areas and the splash tray and coffee grind container are massive compared to the old one which means less emptying. The milk carafe has also been redesigned going from a round container to a slimmer rectangular shape making it much easier to store in the fridge. Setting up is so easy, even if you have never used one before as the instructions are clear and easy to follow. Of course the quality of coffee produced is entirely based on the quality of beans used and it's worth shopping around as there are some wonderful beans about at very low prices.
Cleaning is very easy, it comes with all the tools you need and a free bottle of descaler. If this machine lasts as long as its predecessor then I will be very happy. An excellent coffee machine and I'm in coffee heaven.
