We've got the previous model it gets way too much use my blood type is AB Java.. several years and it has never given an issue.... just use descaling program as and when instructed and it will be fine.
We bought this machine on sale a few weeks back, from Amazon. Really good, highly recommend, especially at this excellent price!
Aagghhh I knew I shouldn't have looked on here today. Just had to buy this lol. Great price. Bought from very for the same price bnpl 12 months
Bought it with 3 years amazon accidental damage and breakdown cover for £29.00. Does that seem worth it? Bit late for me now obviously but for other people might be worth an opinion
The RRP of this model is 829? Is this a high end model
Bought one of these on black friday and there fantastic
This is super. Had one for about a month now and gets used nearly every day as it’s so quick and easy. Sold my manual espresso machine and grinder as it never got used.

All those insurance products are a con. This is an £850 product, if it lasts less than 3 years you would get your money back under 'reasonable use' terms.
Why could they not have done this two days ago.. bloody morons.

I could have had it home for Christmas day for when everyone comes around. Suppose before everyone comes NY day will be ok.

Bought and super happy. Register with Delonghi and you get the £100 gift pack too (if bought before 31st December), which involves a free service. I think I will do any extended warranty with delonghi and not waste £29 doing it with Amazon.

Anyone that has bought this do you get any extended warranty offers when you get the £100 gift pack. Cheers in advance.

bought this machine BF and could not recommend it more. Easy to clean, maintains itself well. No fuss great coffee, the extra really makes a difference for convenience.

No extra extended warranty offer but free 1 year service.
I've been dithering about this machine but I like my coffee hot and every time I'm going to order I find a review moaning about lukewarm coffee. Argh, don't know what to do!

If you follow the instructions, it is hot.

Rinse the machine, which happens automatically when it turns on, I use this water to heat my mug, and discard before making my coffee. If you put the temperature to max then make it, it's definitely hot, enough to hurt! More milky drinks like lattes are out hot but cool quicker due to the froth.

Would love this gadget but at £400 the Mrs vetoed it. Can't be justified with one cuppa in the morning (she's a tea drinker)

It'll come back at this price again though.

Yeah, it's been cheaper.
Can this machine make non milk based coffee, like espresso, ristretto, or long?

Are there any home machines that work at 19 bar?
awesome price. I also bought on BF deal, gift for the mother!

cant recommend more.

With the industry standard set at 9 bars, do people really need over 15 bars of pressure to brew high quality espresso?

The short answer is that no, anything over 10 bars won’t really increase the quality of espresso. Though, machines that are able to push out a higher amount of pressure can, in some cases, help the user brew better espresso than that of a machine only able to push 9 bars.

It is fair to assume that many machines advertising a higher bar pressure only produce a low amount of bar when the machine is actually in use. Cheaper machines will also deteriorate more quickly and the bar pressure will drop over time as components wear out.



It is more important to be competent with a 9 bar espresso machine than to not use a 15 bar machine properly. The idea of adding more bars of pressure to espresso machines somewhat hales from the “bigger is better” mentality, tricking consumers into paying more for something that’s not necessarily needed.

For the most part, 7-9 bars of pressure is considered the sweet spot for pump driven espresso machines, which use a pump to force water through the grounds. Pump driven machines, as well as rotary ones, are known to be much better than those that brew using steam, known as steam driven.

An example of a steam driven espresso machine would be the kind sitting on store shelves that seem to cost an unusually low amount when compared to other espresso machines.

These machines use a broiler inside that heats water, and in turn builds steam pressure, which is pushed through the bed of coffee grounds by use of its own force. With the optimal brewing temperature being 200 degrees Fahrenheit (93.3 degrees Celsius), and the point at which water turn being hotter than that, the resulting coffee will taste burnt and over-extracted.

Steaming milk with these machines can also be a bit of a gamble. Not because the steam wand is lacking power, but because the transition from espresso to steaming milk, or vise versa, can take quite a while.

With a pump or rotary driven espresso machine, this is not the case. The water inside is heated with either a broiler, or heat exchanger, to the optimal temperature. Once that temperature is reached, it is pumped through with great force with the rotary motor or pump, pulling perfect espresso shots in the process.

Overall, pump espresso machines, as well as rotary ones, are able to brew much better espresso than steam driven ones, and perfect espresso can be brewed with as little as 8 bars of pressure.

On the point of frothing milk I actually find the best method is have a 1 pint plastic carton of whole milk which if you shake up and down for about a minute it froths up nice and then put in required amount in a mug, then microwave for about 10 to 15 seconds then put under espresso machine for coffee
