Product Description
Why have two separate machines when you can make coffee and espresso at the same time? You set the brew strength and size, the machine does the rest. You can even pour yourself a cup before it finishes brewing with the handy Pause 'N' Serve feature. Ten-cup carafe. One-year warranty. Model BCO70. Review
Both a regular coffeemaker and espresso machine, this 1,500-watt appliance has separate water tanks for simultaneously brewing drip coffee and espresso. The espresso machine side has a milk frother for creating cappuccinos and lattes. Separate knobs select the strength of both regular coffee and espresso. Making espresso follows tradition: tamp coffee into a filter basket inside a filter holder, twist the filter holder onto the machine, pour water into the machine's boiler, and press a button. Depending on the amount of water, up to four 2-ounce cups then flow into an 8-ounce glass carafe. Making regular coffee also follows tradition: put a filter in the filter basket, spoon in coffee, add water to the coffeemaker's removable tank, and press a button. Up to ten 5-ounce cups of coffee then flow into a 50-ounce glass carafe on a warming plate. (For five and fewer cups, the brewing process can be sped up to provide full flavor.) The brewing process pauses if the carafe is removed from the warming plate for a mid-brew pour. Encased in both bright and matte-finish black plastic, the machine measures 16 inches wide, 13-1/2 inches high, and 9 inches deep and carries a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack

Great value for the cost

Our teenage son worked in a cafe' for the summer running a major multi-thousand dollar machine, and became a self-styled expert. This machine is as much as we were willing to spring for as a gift, and it's been non-stop espresso, latte & whatever for 48 hours. He's extremely pleased, which says something to us about the machine. He's found no fault with it after testing all the features...

It delivers on its promises! Awesome machine

What a superb machine this is. It delivers on its promises! We admit to being well traveled coffee aficionados, who grind our own coffee, and appreciate a fine machine that creates the coffee one will find in France, Italy, Greece as well as the best food cities here in the states (NYC, New Orleans, Seattle, San Francisco, Miami). And what a versatile and easy to use machine this is and for the price a real gem.We like the black colour as well as the ease of use. The water container lifts out so easily for filling with easy to read measuring levels in large print. The buttons are elegantly designed and labeled for easy reading even in poor light or when not quit awake in the wee hours of the morning. Which is handy when one has odd hours. The carafe is beautiful and looks classy enough for ones dining table. The only suggestion I have is buy a second carafe so that one pot can be brewing as the other is being used. This is a machine we will also be giving as a gift. And talk about a machine that makes an awesome Espresso or Cappuccino. WOW !

Great Coffee and Lattes

After a couple weeks of use, I'm very impressed with this. The coffee maker makes great coffee (water brews at proper temp.) and has the tapered-style filter, which helps quality, especially when making less than a full pot. Does NOT have auto-off feature. The Espresso side of the unit is equally impressive. It offers good control of water flow rate, or the water can be turned off while steaming milk. Does NOT come with a frothing pitcher, so consider one of these as well as a thermometer (unless you have a calibrated finger to hold to the side of your frothing pitcher).

I really like this machine!

I think it is a shame that this coffee maker is getting such poor reviews. This is a good machine that does what it is supposed to do. I have been using this machine daily for two months and have no complaints. The Brewed coffee is excellent, even in small batches, and the expresso maker does a terrific job. At $50 you can't find a better deal then this machine.

DeLonghi Listened

I am happy to say this company listened to the consumer. They have fixed the caraffe that dripped so badly. This coffee pot is great! My original coffee pot was purchased for me 6 years ago. The heating element finally went out. I purchased a less expensive one and hated it. I bought a new one of these and discovered that DeLonghi listened. On the steamer side I heat my water to use as steam for hot cocoa or a latte and can use it as I need to. It does not drip out as the water does in cheaper models. This is one product that you definitely get what you pay for. I can say 6 months of the local coffee shop costs will be saved if you buy this and use it at home.
