Espresso drinkers enjoy their coffee brewed to more exacting standards than most. The beans must be ground just right and the brew made at the correct pressure and temperature to provide the crema, or foam atop the brewed coffee.
The DeLonghi ESAM5500M can do this for you. However it is not as simple as all that. First, there is a DVD of instructions that accompanies the machine when you buy it. This makes the process of understanding the controls easier, and should definitely be studied before using the “DeLonghi ESAM5500M”.
I have found Delonghi products to be well made and long lasting. My previous very well used espresso cappuccino maker from them worked reliably for over ten years. There are some reviewers who differ with this opinion, but I would trust this brand name again.
If you want a machine that will serve a great cup, and do so automatically with the push of a button once some presets have been made, this DeLonghi ESAM5500M will do it for you.
It is a bit more expensive than some other brands that may offer comparable quality though, so it is recommended that you compare before choosing.
