Delonghi EC702 Espresso Machine: High Quality Yet Affordable Brewing at Home
Ranging in price from less than $100 (EC155) to over $1400 (Perfecta). But let’s take a look at the one I purchased just recently, the Delonghi EC702 coming in at about $200.
When it comes to finding the perfect home brewing machine for your coffee beverages, a few key features come to mind for most people. These features are affordability, ease of use, and quality.
If these are the top features you are looking for in your home brewing machine, you certainly will want to consider the Delonghi EC702 espresso machine as one of the top contenders for your upcoming espresso maker purchase.
So just what makes the Delonghi EC702 so wonderful? This is a truly versatile machine that packs in the benefits of a pump espresso maker with a cappuccino maker, too. You can choose to use either the convenient ESE pods or brew your own fresh espresso grounds too. This allows you to adjust the flavor of your drink in a simple and easy way.
However, I’ve found that I can’t get a decent brew from the pods. Not sure why – the espresso just seems to come out really thin.
The Delonghi EC702 espresso machine is completely fast and easy to use, and it is also fast and easy to clean up too. Many of the components are dishwasher-safe and it even has a removable 5.5-cup water tank, so when you are done using it in the morning, afternoon, or evening, you can easily clean it so it is ready to go again the next time you want one of your favorite coffee drinks at home.
This machine is loaded with some features that you will find in machines that are priced two, three or more times higher than this one, so this Delonghi model is truly an affordable yet completely functional machine that you will definitely want to consider.
At the end of the days, it fits on my kitchen counter, heats up quickly and makes a good espresso. Job done 🙂
