DeLonghi Espresso Maker

 It seems that wherever you go today you can find espresso-based drinks. What used to be found at only upscale bakeries and Italian restaurants, can now be found at gas stations and convenience stores. With such a surge in popularity, it makes sense that there are now many options for making lattes, cappuccinos, and espressos at home.

Having become a fan of lattes, I received a DeLonghi Espresso Maker a year ago. I found this to be the perfect home model for me. It was very reasonably priced, taking about 20 barista-made lattes to equal the price of the machine. Its size is not cumbersome, fitting perfectly in a corner of my kitchen counter.

My DeLonghi Espresso Maker also is very user friendly. It comes with espresso pods, which make cleaning quite simple. However, I have also used ground espresso and have had the same results, though a little more cleaning is needed. This machine produces hot, perfectly strong espresso. The steam nozzle quickly heats and froths the milk to make a delicious cappuccino or latte at home.

In addition to using the espresso maker for making these delicious beverages, it can also be used to make my kids’ favorite hot drink, moos. Moos are simply steamed milk with any flavored syrup added: chocolate, caramel, vanilla, etc.

For the price, size, and convenience of this machine, it’s the best buy on the home market.

    I was never a big fan of coffee as a younger man, but as I get older I like coffee more and more and nothing is better than a Vanilla Latte.
