I purchased my machine following 2 faulty Gaggia coffee makers 3 years ago.
On the rare occasion the machine works properly the coffee is excellent with good crema. Most of the time it decides to block itself resulting in seriously high pressure build up that prevents the handle from being removed from the machine until some time has passed. I have tried many different types of coffee specifically designed for espresso makers and found no difference in the frequency of blockage.
A friend bought a delonghi from a car boot sale for £5 and his machine makes a perfect brew every time with any coffee espresso or otherwise!
It would seem that I am not alone in this respect which would seem to suggest that the machine is seriously flawed and potentially dangerous.
I will not be recommending this machine to anyone and feel that Duallt are still riding on the success of their toaster - it doesn't get blocked!
