My Review of the Cheapest Among Pump Espresso Machines

I bought pump driven espresso machine that costs under $100. It seemed like a bad idea, but I read some reviews about it and it did get positive feedback from experts and customers. So I gave it a chance and decided to give some of my experiences with it here.

The DeLonghi EC155 --- probably the cheapest pump driven espresso machine out there today. Espresso machines that cost under $100 are usually the steam driven ones.

Rarely do we see a pump driven one for that price. And it does make better espresso because it's pump driven. On top of that, the espresso comes out very well. It produces decent crema, too.

The unit itself doesn't take up a lot of counter space but its reservoir can hold around 10 shots. It's easy to refill because it's removable, and the water level indicator is easy to see.

It does have limitations, though. You can only put a cup under the spout. Anything taller than a cup won't fit. The holder for espresso grounds can only contain enough for 2oz at a time.

Nevertheless, I find myself drinking more espresso now than ever before.
