As good as a shop bought coffee.... with practice,
This review is from: De'Longhi EC710 15-Bar Espresso/Cappuccino Maker, Stainless Steel (Kitchen & Home)
I have had more basic espresso machines before, and thought them great... but never up to Costa or Nero. Finally my old machine erupted spurts of hot water though the kitchen and gave its last puff of smoke, so I decided to spend some decent money on a machine.... people may rate this as a 'good value' machine but anything over £100 in my book is not a cheap machine, its a thing of quality!
Anyway, I was not disappointed, my first espresso from it had a lovely crema, my second was watery... not enough coffee.... each one from then on gets better and better. Its true that the milk frother is left to drip milk on your work surface but thats minor compared to ease of use, the ability to put in cold water and have hot coffee in seconds, making coffee again and again for however many people want it, just like in a coffee shop!

I took delivery of my new EC710 last week. I have been making quality espresso like mad since then. I did not try to produce my very frst Cappuccino, that is my next adventure. When making Espresso, you really need to watch your cup carefully, it does not stop dropping coffee on cup itself; you have to stop it manually by switching the ok button off. In short, I am extremely happy with my purchase. To those still addicted to Starbucks and Cafe Nero, I said bye bye to Starbucks/Cafe Nero and Costa.
