What People Are Saying:

Consumer Reports did not review the DeLonghi EC5, but it was a best-selling model on Amazon in early 2013. Top Ten Reviews called it a great machine that can produce espresso quickly. But, Top Ten Reviews noted the shorter-than-average frothing wand might make it more difficult to get the perfect frothed milk. Customers who reviewed the model on Amazon were less than enthusiastic about it: There were slightly more one-star reviews than five-star reviews (out of five). Many of the customers were dissatisfied with the functionality and the quality of the machine.
  • Top Ten Reviews: "This device will produce a great cup of espresso, latte or cappuccino and allows you to brew 2 cups at one time."
