Who said that you need a big amount of money to make a delicious espresso? The new DeLonghi EC155 Pump Espresso comes at the price of 100 dollars and has the ability to prepare a satisfying espresso, cappuccino or latte.
All these delicious drinks can be prepared at home. It is true, this machine cannot compete with the high-end espresso makers, but it makes a decent job at an affordable price.
However, at the price of 100 dollars the new DeLonghi EC155 Pump Espresso also has some flaws. For example, it has a weak vibrator pump, erratic water temperature control and a single boiler that will make it tricky to have consistent results. In the end, for those who don’t have big expectations for an espresso, this new machine is a very affordable and decent option.
As for design, DeLonghi EC155 Pump Espresso can be compared in size with other small pod-style coffee makers, because it measures 10.5 inches tall, 7 inches wide and 8.24 inches deep. As for its weight, it isn’t very heavy, weighting 7 pounds, meaning that it can be carried without any trouble around the house or be moved outside.
One of the most convenient features is the removable tank. This tank can hold approximately 34 ounces of liquid and can be easily pulled out or dropped into the espresso machine due to its built-in handle. To be added that this tank has flat bottom, meaning that it can be put on tables for quick fills.
As many other espresso machines, DeLonghi EC155 Pump Espresso comes with a portafilter device to both load and brew its coffee grounds. This portafilter was built to withstand the high temperatures and pressure of espresso brewing. Moreover, the espresso machine also contains two metal filters, one for creating double shot coffeesand one to handle single shots.
As for performance, this espresso machine delivers the same quality of espresso as other brands that cost two or even four times as much. This means that the new DeLonghi EC155 Pump Espresso is a good investment especially for espresso fans.
