4.0 out of 5 stars De'Longhi EC220. CD pump espresso coffee machine, 22 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: De'Longhi Coffee Machine EC220.CD (Kitchen & Home)
A good machine which I purchased at a very good price. This is my 2nd DeLonghi machine, the first one just made espresso with steam option for milk frothing and eventually broke after a descaling!! This machine uses standard fresh coffee (I use Taylors) and ESE pods, which are a nightmare to find in my local supermarket. In fact when asking at my local ASDA they didn't have a clue what I was asking for. Seems the only make I could find was Illy. I ended up buying them with a "ESE pod" search on Amazon from a company that sold a variety pack of 4 x 4 different blends. Not cheap but very easy and moreish.
Back to the machine - I did read others reviews regarding leakish of the water tank, so I leave mine in situ and refill it with a jug.I did find the milk frother being on the left of the machine a bit inconvenient for me (on my previous machine it was on the right), but guess it is just what I had got use to. The new machine heats very quickly and I use the 2 cup hopper for the coffee which I dispense into a small metal jug, which has been previously preheated with water only from the machine. I can then dispense the coffee into 2 mugs. I repeat this once more, sharing the coffee between the the mugs again, before heating and frothing the milk. 2 perfect cups of coffee, my friend has most of the milk and I have most of the froth.

Waitrose own brand pods. Much cheaper than Illy and, I find, excellent!

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. Unfortunately there is no Waitrose in my area, best we can manage is Asda, Aldi and Iceland!! Guess that a penalty for living in the Somerset countryside. Thanks again.
