UPDATE 3: I have now had this Espresso maker for almost two years and it is still going strong. No problems at all since I replaced the water tank. The coffee quality is still excellent. I use the machine daily and descale about once every six weeks or so. I still love the coffee that this machine makes - I get freshly-roasted beans from Peace Coffee online and grind a week's worth at once. This coffee is so good - much better than any coffee house can make. I'd definitely buy another of these machines if this one died. It is easy to use, foolproof, and makes wonderful coffee.

UPDATE 2: I found a replacement water tank fairly cheaply online. It totally fixed the leaking problem. The through-flow problem and pump noises that made me think it was dying seem to be down to the fineness of the grind. I made the grind a little coarser and stopped tamping it so hard (apparently you don't need to tamp the coffee so much for these pressurized portafilter machines). Now it is working again just like new! So I am upping my rating to 4 stars, as the tank may need replacing every so often, but this is very easy if you know where to look ([...] - just search on brand and model number EC 210). It was very easy and inexpensive (10.95) to replace the tank. The new tank had a tighter fit than the original - perhaps it will last longer. I'm a happy bunny again, now I am getting my daily fix of espresso once more ... :-)

UPDATE 1: Seven months of wonderful coffee, but now getting floods all over the counter, with a distinct lack of flow/throughput from the espresso head.

I am somewhat of an aged coffee drinker, I admit. I have had years where I would go to work and consume maybe 15 6 oz. cups of coffee. Even now, I don't have a problem drinking a triple or quad shot latte. I just have a hard time watching the money flow out of my wallet when I frequent the espresso stands. But I do like a tasty cup of java. I know what I like and I'll likely pay for it if I have to buy coffee at an espresso stand, but I won't be buying any $200+ machines for home use any time soon. Nor any expensive burr grinders or $30 tampers. And no ESE pods. I want the coffee experience. Coffee pods are made for those who want automatic machines and that is NOT what I want out of a coffee making machine experience. That being said, I did some research to upgrade my current 20+ year old Krups espresso/latte maker (hardly any crema and way too much airy foam in the milk). I found the DeLonghi EC-270 on sale and specifically researched it for comments. Yes I have read all the reviews here on Amazon and I'm honestly scratching my head in wonder. Are we all talking about the same machine? I am absolutely IN LOVE with this unit and have been since I opened the box. It has a small footprint compared to many of the higher priced ones, It is manually operated, which I want....I like the experience of being my own barista, I do not want an automatic machine where you push a button for a latte and out comes your complete drink. I don't want a grinder added to my machine, I'll do that on my own. I just want an honest machine that will consistently pour(or pull or steam) a great cup of espresso or cappucino or latte. This one does it with 3 buttons and one twist knob.Read more ›

We had high hopes for this machine, and it was well reviewed and very reasonably priced. The first time we filled the water reservoir a few minutes later we were stepping in water (oh, it leaks.) We cleaned up, filled it up again, and this time carefully ensured it was seated properly. Then we waited. Yep, it leaked again.

After a couple of additional attempts (push it firmly in, gently rest it in place) I decided to turn on the machine...maybe running a cycle or two would fix things. As it warmed up, water started leaking out of the steam nozzle! (first time it was ever used) followed by leaking from the water reservoir.

The manual says nothing about troubleshooting leaks. I think we got a dud, and I'm very disappointed.

This machine is nicely heavy and strong, normally with every pump espresso machine you have to wait like 5 minutes or more to let it warm up, well this one is ready in seconds, the pump is not noisy at all, the steamer works very nice mixing perfectly the milk with the steam without making boiling the milk before you get a firm foam and that is a good advantage because you can froth directly into your cup instead of using frothing pitcher (less clean to do), the water reservoir can be remove to fill it or it has a lid too, and it comes with two kinds of filters one to use with ground coffee for 2 cups, and another one that can be use with ground coffee for 1 cup or with E.S.E pods( which although they are bit expensive, once you use them you love them cause they are super practical) and at last but not least the fact that this has stainless-steel boiler is a plus since all the small espressos use aluminum which is not that healthy. In general it is very easy to use and to clean machine.
