There are three main considerations in my mind regarding buying an espresso machine.
#1 it has to make a great tasting and good looking espresso
#2 it should minimize the "mess" one makes in the kitchen while making a nice espresso
I have made about 100 espresso's so far with this machine and it is excellent on all three of my main considerations.
It makes an excellent espresso. It has the minimum 15 bar pump one needs to make a good espresso and it works great.
It has an ingenious little platform inside the coffee pod that prevents the normal drips when emptying the pod. It has a very clever little lever built into the arm that holds the pod nice and firm when banging the coffee grinds out in my garbage bag. Other machines I have had also had that lever, but they didn't hold the pod firm when banging the coffee out.
Finally - I paid $88 for this machine. How can you go wrong?
It heats up fast - about 2 minutes - or the time it takes me to get the milk out for a latte and the coffee ground in my grinder.
Since I have not had this machine for very long I can't yet tell you how well it will hold up. However, one thing I have been missing when reading numerous reviews from other people on many different espresso machines is the following. Regardless of what machine you have, if its under $100 or up towards $2,000 - you HAVE TO DESCALE IT when the manual tells you to. In my case about once a quarter. The reason is that the machines all have powerful pumps, and the pipes and their connections inside are dimensioned to work for a long time at that pressure. What happens when you have build up inside the pipe is that the space that is left is smaller, while the pump is pushing the same pressure of water, it effectively creates too high pressure on the pipes and especially the connections inside, this will eventually make the pipes or a connection to start to leak and you will loose pressure and the machine will be "broken".
I strongly suggest you invest in the cheap professional descaling bottles sold by DeLongi and others. It's a cost effective way to keep your machine working like new for a very long time.
One more thing - this is by far the smallest espresso machine I have had - it takes up very little space on our counter and it still has a large detachable water tank making it very easy to fill up.
All in all - I am very happy with this product and would recommend it to anyone with similar requirements as I have.
The espresso side of things is adequate out of the box. You only get two pressurized portafilters with the machine, a single and double (just toss the single). The pressurized portafilter is great for pre-ground espresso like Lavazza and you can get by with that for quite a while if you're like me.
When you're ready to grind your own coffee, get a Baratza Encore grinder and a part # 607706 non-pressurized basket. This is the more difficult modification, though, because the basket is meant to fit in a bottomless handle. You need to drill or grind off the metal fastener just under the portafilter to fit the basket. You can choose whether to cut off the bottom with two drip holes or leave it, I left it. Be careful though: Don't buy the replacement "sump" from DeLonghi, because the replacement part they stock has slightly thinner lock tabs which DO NOT form a seal with the BAR32 and will leak ground coffee over the top when under pressure. You have to modify the sump that comes with the machine.
As for the milk: This machine puts out a LOT of steam and lasts a long time. It's great for frothing milk. But the aerator tip that comes with the machine is garbage; it only produces suds and won't give you anything usable for a latte or cappuccino. There are replacement single-hole tips available on the web which give fantastic results and you can even make latte art-quality foam. It's also nice to be able to control the amount of steam, but I use it full-blast anyway.
The machine is made of plastic, but it is nice plastic. It doesn't attract dirt and fingerprints and is rugged. The tamper built right into the unit is kind of tacky but gets the job done and you'll never lose it.
It's a shame that these modifications are needed because less than 20 bucks in parts can make this machine go head-to-head with a competing machine that sells for double the price. If DeLonghi had built this machine to support a non-pressurized PF and single-hole foam out of the box, it would be an easy 5/5.
The compacting disc/tamper on the machine is kind of awkward so I got a steel tamper from a coffee store and it works slightly better. Without some sort of tamping the coffee is not strong enough.
All in all, a good machine that makes a pretty good espresso or cappucino. Be aware that even if the "Hot Enough to Brew" light has come on, you should still wait 30-40 more seconds for the machine to get a bit hotter, other wise the temp drops a bit halfway through a 3 oz. coffee.
I wish there was a way to have the machine beep or something if you leave it on after cleaning, but that is just user error on my part.
