After a good meal we can intensively enjoy espresso or macchiato with lovely frothy hot milk. Since we have the Delonghi ESAM 5500 Perfecta at home we do not have to get out the door for such a delicious cup, but we can have one whenever we want to make one yourself. There are basically three types of espresso machines. There are fully automatic espresso machines, semi-automatic espresso machines and Nespresso machines (with cups). Our espresso machine is a semi-automatic espresso machine. This means that you have a few options and so do you have thus somewhat effect on the taste of your coffee. You can obtain the amount of coffee, the pressure of the device (bar) and the water you use self-adjustment and control. This gives everyone the coffee he / she likes it.
The device has intrigued a coffee grinder, but works with both ground coffee and beans. The grinding of the integrated coffee grinder is adjustable, so you can change the strength of your espresso according to your own taste. The device has several automatic features so you can control the amount of coffee, water, frothed milk and the desired temperature. So prepare yourself a delicious cappuccino, caffe latte without a complex and lengthy preparation.
The cappuccino system of the device mixes steam, air and milk in the right proportion to make a creamy froth. It goes through a stainless steel nozzle which has a foam regulator, which you can determine the thickness. What I love about this machine is that you can also make just a simple cup of hot water for your tea.
Delonghi ESAM 5500 Perfecta is black and has stainless steel accents. Atop the unit is a metal-cup platform where you can warm the cups too. The reservoir for the beans has a capacity of 250g. It can take up to 1.7 liter of water.
We are very pleased with our espresso machine. We still have to think as well, whether it was worth our money. But we can enjoy every day our delicious espresso or macchiato. The machine is very easy to operate and it didn't took us long to figure everything out. You get instructions were everything is explained but the machine has a handy display with instructions of what to do making it a piece of cake. The machine costs around 400 pounds.
