Lovely coffee

Absolutely love this machine - I've been using A Sage Barista Express for the last few years which made pretty good coffee but i found it was always a bit of a mess and the grinder stopped working.

This De'Longhi is a definite upgrade. The auto milk frother is great for ease of use and i love the no-mess tamping mechanism but it's the quality of the espresso and the steam wand that really set this apart.

Velo were top class with shipping speed and updates and they supplied some very very nice beans FOC.

Overall I'm very happy with the machine and Velos service. Thanks!

Not had it long

Looks lovely and modern. Switches and controls are easy to use. Good long creamer nozzle.

Don't likes. The wider coffee holder. Heats up very slowly.

It's hard to get the mug or cup under the coffee flow. Even a normal 10oz cup doesn't fit.

When waiting for the steam to build up there is a constant drip of water.
