De’Longhi EC155 Review

Share on:

In our review, we are going to explore the world of coffee and, in particular, the world of coffee makers. Taking a closer look at a coffee maker and cappuccino maker available today from the celebrated De’Longhi group, we will examine one such appliance here.

Established by the De’Longhi family in 1902, this company has a long history. The company is based in Treviso, Italy, and makes a variety of small home appliances and kitchen appliances, including espresso machines. The Italians brew coffee for a living, therefore, using a machine made in Italy assures our immediate confidence.

So, here is our in-depth review of the De’Longhi EC155, where we take a closer look at this espresso and cappuccino pump machine.

De’Longhi EC155

The EC155

Whether you enjoy a cup of coffee first thing in the morning or at the end of the day, the EC155 is a great choice for anyone who loves espresso.

Appliances like this are extremely easy to use. Unlike many other counter-top appliances, it is nice and compact, so you can place it neatly on your kitchen counter. EC155 makes beautiful coffee and cappuccinos every time.

Usability And Performance

De’Longhi EC155 Performance

As mentioned, not only is the EC155 extremely user-friendly, but you can also be assured of consistent results, making great coffee every time.

The coffee maker only offers two options without the inclusion of a wide range of features found in other models at a higher price point. Using it only allows you to make espresso and cappuccino. That being said, if that fits your requirements, then hey, here is a great option!

Having fancy gadgets and gizmos is not always the point. Keeping things simple sometimes is the way to go. Featuring a self-priming system, this is quick and simple to use. This means you can get through a couple of cups of coffee with the EC155 in no time. Because of this, we feel this is an excellent machine to keep around the house.

Design Features

De’Longhi EC155 Features

First of all, the design of the unit is very attractive and compact. It measures just ten inches by seven inches by eight inches, and it weighs seven pounds. This means you will not need to take up too much kitchen counter space. EC155 is very light and small, so it can easily be moved from one place to another or even taken outside.

Due to it being one of De’ Longhi’s most simple models, there are not a lot of features to talk about. Although it has a few tricks up its sleeve, it’s not as difficult as it might seem.

This feature allows you to remove the water tank. You can fill it up to one liter. There is a handle on the back that makes for easy removal and replacement. The machine also comes equipped with a steam wand. It enables you to steam and froth milk in the most convenient manner. It will also save you money since you won’t need to pay a lot for the milk frothers available today.

A thermostat can be found on the machine’s front. As a result, the EC155 constantly informs you that it is operating at the optimal coffee brewing temperature.

De’Longhi EC155 Design

You do need to keep an eye on things, though, when you use this machine. The machine doesn’t operate with one-touch automation like some more expensive alternatives. It instead operates simply by turning it on/off. In this case, when your espresso is nearly at the top of your cup, the brewing process needs to be halted. Without this action, the espresso will continue to pour. That, of course, will leave you in a mess!

Also to be considered is the limitation of tall mugs. Because the pump pours espresso very low, you must use a low-profile coffee cup or a single shot demitasse. A large-sized brewed coffee will need to be brewed and poured into a smaller cup and then transferred to your larger mug.

We’ve fitted removable drip trays beneath the coffee cups so any spillages can be cleaned easily. The combination of this and all the other great features make it one of the cappuccino machines available.

Filter System

EC155 uses a portafilter device that allows loading, containing, and brewing coffee grounds. A handle on one end of this filter system connects with a circular filter and a circular basket on the other. In this device, pressures and temperatures necessary for espresso brewing are withstood and operated safely.

There are two metal filters included in the DeLonghi EC155 model. De’Longhi especially patents these dual-function filters due to their simple design allowing for easy cleaning.

In one, you can handle single shots of coffee, and in the other, you can make double shots. Each single shot filter can handle seven grams of coffee. Two single-shot filters are deeper and can handle up to twelve grams.

Pros
  • Good for beginners.
  • High-pressure pump produces consistently good cups of coffee.
  • Good value.
  • Lightweight and portable.
Cons
  • Only makes espresso or cappuccino.

Conclusion

Now that we’ve accomplished our little review of this coffee maker for those of you who like to make freshly brewed coffee at home, we’ve come to the end.

In addition to providing you with all the features you need to make fresh-brewed, smooth, and delicious coffee, the EC155 is also quite easy to use. A model like this is a good choice if you need an easy-to-use coffee maker while having limited kitchen worktop space.

I thank you so much for reading this through with me. By the end of our De’Longhi EC155 review, we hope that we have better informed you about this coffee maker.
