Including them, here is the full list of potential users of DeLonghi EC First time users with espresso coffee makers.

Non-commercial, household uses. Frequent, regualr uses in corportate or business spaces. The DeLonghi ec occupies a small footprint Being made of a sturdy and attractive stainless steel outlook, the appearance is also praiseworthy.

So, you can brew your favorite coffee shop without any worry about the pitcher getting in the way. On top of that, the frother is able to produce a nice foam as well.

To control the steaming and espresso brewing functions, there are two different thermostats. What it means is, you can prepare a coffee shot and steam for another one at the same time. Makes sense, right? Because of the same reasons, the chance of over-extraction with this machine is almost zero.

If you want to serve coffee from this machine for any guests and events, this feature makes quite some sense, right? There is a patented technology of dual-function filter holder, which is another thing we loved about this maker.

Throughout it, you can choose both convenient ground coffee or pods at the same time. As the boiler is made out of stainless steel, the heating capacity is pretty fast and uniform. The water tank is of a size of 44oz, with visible water level indicator. But one tiny precaution is there- you should keep around a place where the temperature is more than degree Fahrenheit.

So, if you need to get a coffee maker for short and narrow housing space, you might go for ECP But if you have enough space, you might go to the other one. Both of the models come in a stainless steel structure, and that is quite rugged and sturdy. Both models use 15 bar pressure, and both models have separate thermostats to control the steam pressure and water temperature.

Advanced Controllability The EC uses an automatic self-primer which lets you use pods or ground coffee with the patented filter holder design. Both of the models have manual fothers, which is pretty helpful when making espresso through the machines. There is a one-touch controlling DeLonghi EC So, making cups after cups of coffee is way easier and faster with this machine. The one-touch control will stop the coffee flow automatically.

There is an energy saver design to give you some but in the electricity bill. The reservoir capacity of EC is 44 ounces, where the other one has 37 ounces in total.

So the refilling frequency will be more in case of ECP Our overall feedback is, the Delonghi EC is a way smarter and better pick if you consider the functionality and controls. Cleaning as an espresso machine is a must to do part of its maintenance.

IN this way, no grounds or build-up can go on inside the chambers. Also, remember that no parts of a coffee machine are actually dishwasher safe. Now, here are the steps- Step 1: Descale the machine To begin with the process, you need to learn how to descale the machine in the first place.

Also, there are some other recommendations while descaling the machine- Make sure to attach the portafilter when running the descaler. Prevent the water from preventing all over. Clean the group head when descaling the basket. Step 2: Clear out the water condensation In EC, water containment and water condensations are very likely to take place.

Do deal with that, purge the frothing wand before using it to diminish the steam. Make sure to cover up your hands, as the steam can cause burn on your hand. Do that until the gurgling sound is stopped. Now, clean out the nozzle of the steamer with soap water. Make sure to take out the nozzle before cleaning. Finally, rinse out the portafilter handle after every shot. Make sure to connect each part securely, as Delonghi EC has quite complicated setup inside.

After looking up several brands and models, I am pleased with what am getting now with this model. Starting from the packaging to the design, the controls, and the service- everything seems to be up to the mark.

Then, we decided to go for an extra mile and purchase Delonghi EC
