De'Longhi EC702 15-Bar-Pump Espresso Maker, Stainless

The sleek, Italian-made De'Longhi EC702 is a fantastic buy for any espresso devotee. It stands out from its competitors due to the dual function filter holder, which gives you the option of using pods or ground coffee. The Sempre Crema Filter, best used with two measures of ground coffee, boosts the brewing process to produce an ideal crema. If you want a straightforward espresso shot, use the E.S.E. (Easy Serving Espresso) Filter, which can be used with pods or one measure of ground coffee. If you are exacting when it comes to temperature, you will appreciate the two individual thermostats, which allow water and steam pressure to be controlled separately. Other advantages include the 1,100-watt stainless steel boiler (which allows for a quicker warm-up time) and the easy-to-use “Cappuccino System,” which comes with a special chamber that mixes steam and milk to frothy perfection.
