    Pros: Compact; does a great job for its price; cleanup is easy; simple operation.
    Cons: No water filter (not a big deal for most of us)

    Summary: Background:This is the first espresso machine that I have ever purchased.  We received an espresso machine as a wedding gift earlier, but were not into espresso back then.  My criteria for an espresso machine was that it needed ... read more

    Pros: Delicious espresso/cappuccino/latte. easy to use and clean up. Durable.
    Cons: A little noisy, water tank could be better quality, frothing arm could be higher.

    Summary: I have NEVER made espresso, cappuccino or latte before and this was my first attempt. I couldnt see paying the prices at the coffee shops when you can make it at home. so i started researching the machines and I ended up with this product after ALOT of ... read more

  • Great Cappuccino

    Mar 14, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Makes great Espresso and Cappuccino
    Cons: Little loud

    Summary: We always owned an Espresso machine. We had a very expensive Krups but the durability isn't so good so after 3 years it didn't work as good as before and I got my husband this one for Christmas since he loves to drink his Espressos twice a day. The ... read more

  • It's everything I wanted in an espresso machine

    Nov 26, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great espresso, easy to use, great froth, great bargain.
    Cons: The warmup time, short frothing arm, need to take plastic base out for larger cups.

    Summary: I had been making espresso with a Moko expess for quite a while and when it came time to make a change, I studied for months for a machine that was inexpensive yet versatile. The Bar32 came at a GREAT price ($30! on Ebay) plus it works every bit as ... read more

    Pros: easy to use, great espresso, ESE certified machine
    Cons: none considering the price

    Summary: After I finally grew tired of my Mr. Coffee espresso machine, I decided I was going to own an "ESE" certified pod machine. This is a trademark managed by the Italian government and there are restrictions and standards that must be followed before a ... read more

  • Amazing for it's size & price

    Sep 15, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use & clean Clear reservoir Impresses friends & relatives
    Cons: Plastic parts feel a little cheap Other machines were cheaper larger mugs won't fit

    Summary: I bought this little machine after doing a lot of research. It produces wonderful shots of espresso (if you tamp the grounds down with the right amount of pressure) with a lot of crema. There is no timer on the espresso, so you can judge for yourself ... read more

  • Great machine, but what's up with the pods?

    Feb 7, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great espresso, thick crema, beautiful to look at. Best machine I have ever owned.
    Cons: Confusing instruction manual, useless "pod" holder for people who don't know how to scoop coffee.

    Summary: This is my third DeLonghi espresso machine over a period of about ten years. I work at home, so my espresso machines get a workout. I've had this one for about a week now, and have been totally satisfied thus far. This makes the best espresso and latté ... read more

  • Good, nice and cheap

    Oct 4, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Good coffee, Nice look, Reliable and best relation value, quality and price
    Cons: Scratch fast Exaggerated foam Noisy Fragile

    Summary: To begin, I'm a "Québécois" who likes espresso and with time, like other things, I'm getting more demanding. I own a DeLonghi Bar32 and happy with it. It's not the best, but it does its job. However, if you planning to buy a real espresso machine, look ... read more

    Pros: easy to use and clean
    Cons: noisy, water tank

    Summary: My wife and I purchased the Bar 32 about five months ago.We chose DeLonghi based on our positive experience with our first DeLonghi, which served us well for many years. Like the first model we use this one every day. The Bar32 give excellent crema and ... read more

    Pros: Makes a wonderful latte.
    Cons: A bit noisy and vibrates when pump is in use.

    Summary: I received this machine for Christmas from my Dad. I was quite impressed with it from the beginning. I have never owned an espresso machine of my own, even though I am a huge coffee lover. I have two coffee makers in my kitchen to keep up with me and ... read more

    Pros: Quick and easy to use. Makes a great capo and espresso.
    Cons: It's a little loud.

    Summary: This is a wonderful machine which I cannot believe I lived without it for so long. I buy Starbucks Italian roast coffee and fill up the holders instead of using the expensive pods. I like it much better because I can adjust just how strong to make ... read more

    Pros: Good coffee.
    Cons: Dead after 18 months.

    Summary: I've had this machine 18 months and have used it a lot. It made fine coffee and excellent cappuccino. But the rubber gaskets don't last well. I replace the one in my two-cup filter with the one from the on-cup filter (which I don't use), but now some ... read more

    Pros: Good, strong espresso with rich crema. Steams milk quickly.
    Cons: Noisy pump. Reservoir lid rattles when pump is operating.

    Summary: Bought this model in June 2007. Used it 4-5 times a week. Espressos were rich and creamy and tasted great. Making lattes and cappuccinos was a cinch with the steam wand - had hot milk in around 30 seconds. The system worked well until recently when it ... read more

    Pros: Pods or Grind, Great Espresso Foam, Fast Process
    Cons: Frothing arm doesn't rotate up or down, only side to side

    Summary: Fantastic *foam* as far as espresso (NOT the milk froth) I have had numerous espresso machines (cheap ones) and this is the first one to consistently have the espresso foam. Overall the whole process is quick, especially heating the milk. (I don't like ... read more

    Pros: Great coffee, excellent crema, easy to use.
    Cons: Tank leaks and hot frothing arm gets in the way.

    Summary: Though I use this machine every day and the coffee is delicious, I wouldn't buy it again. It makes a good strong cup with lovely crema, and the frothing arm works well. I don't froth milk very often and I was really bad at it on our old machine but this ... read more

    Pros: Great delicious espresso coffee
    Cons: The pump makes some noise, but not bad. Would love to find a silent machine.

    Summary: This model looks exactly like the 42Bar and other retro machines. It makes creamy coffee 200 times better than the same type model from Krups (my sister has Krups, I gave it to her for Christmas but overpaid for it considering the type of coffee Krups ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive, makes a quality espresso, easy to use
    Cons: a touch loud

    Summary: I picked this us just the other day and have'nt gotten my hands off of it since. I am by no means a coffee buff, but rather someone who was tired of spending upwards of $5 for something I could make on my own. I chose DeLonghi on its reputation, as ... read more

    Pros: Getting 2 shots at once, large water reservoir, good milk frother.
    Cons: It took me 3 weeks of trial and error to decide to keep this machine.

    Summary: I almost returned this machine, but my persistence forced me to figure out how to get decent espresso from it. Here are my instructions, using the ground coffee filter. Buy beans and grind them, or have them ground to a #3 grind. (By Starbucks ... read more

    Dec 1, 2004 by

    Pros: Cheap (price), Easy to use, Tasty espresso
    Cons: Cheap (poorly manufactured machine), obtaining service, Frother

    Summary: I purchased this machine earlier this year for a great sale price at Lowe's Home improvement. It is very easy to use and does a fine job with espresso but the frother spits out hot water, making for a watery cappuccino or latte. PLEASE NOTE: I had to ... read more
