Are you someone who is a big fan of ground coffee and cappuccino? If you are then I’m sure you’re considering using the new De’Longhi Bar 14 Café Treviso espresso cappuccino maker. But I’m pretty sure you have already used several espresso cappuccino makers in the past, and you are probably wondering what makes this one so special. Well I’ve had a chance to look it over and see what it has to offer. Hopefully by reading this short review you will be able to determine whether or not the De’Longhi Bar 14 Café Treviso espresso cappuccino maker is for you.
Firstly I was glad to see that this particular espresso cappuccino maker used traditional means to create cappuccino and ground coffee. It uses a pump machine; this is known to be one of the more conventional ways to make espresso.
Secondly I was glad to see that the De’Longhi Bar 14 Café Treviso espresso cappuccino maker would not require me to be too technologically savvy in order to operate. This espresso cappuccino maker is extremely effective, and what is better is that it only requires three buttons in order to operate.
Thirdly I was able to make coffee and cappuccino very easily, getting coffee that is as good as I would receive in a lot of trendy coffee houses. I would say this one benefit alone is a good reason to add this espresso cappuccino maker to your kitchen.
Some people may be a little bit confused at using some of the extra features that come along with it. I looked it over and found that I was a little bit confused about the filter storage department, and the built in coffee tamper. I was also somewhat confused by the steam thermostats, but was able to get a hold of it quite quickly.
A removable reservoir holds about 1 liter of water, which I would say is a little bit too much. But I am sure for some they will be satisfied with this seeing as how it will allow them to produce more coffee.
In order for you to get an idea of what this coffee maker is like, lets take a look at what some other people who have used it had to say about it.
Followed the instructions, and felt like I was in cafe. The espresso comes out thick and black (or lighter if you prefer) and the steamer actually makes really good froth. (Remember to use chilled milk). First cappucino I made was good – now just getting better at it and making better and better coffee.
The machine is also REALLY easy to clean. – Negative points – it’s slightly noisy when the pump is going – but that’s only 30 seconds so who cares. Well done Delonghi.
This machine simply does what it supposed to do. Pressure is enough to make foamy and nice aroma espresso. Water tank is a bit small, so needs to be refilled quite frequently, the other thing – cups are sliding off the surface because of vibration, so I have to hold them back and pod holder is tight to insert into machine. But anyway really good ratio price/quality.
I’ve owned this coffee machine for a few days now.
it does heat up quicker than its states in the instruction manual. which is a good thing.
the only thing worth mentioning, is that when heating up the milk, rather a lot of water enters the cup before the steam. to get around this i allow the water to run into an empty cup until steam appears before heating the milk.
but still gets the thumbs up from me, as its makes a very nice cuppa coffee.
All in all I found that anyone who is serious about making quality coffee and cappuccino should definitely consider the De’Longhi Bar 14 Café Treviso espresso cappuccino maker. Whether or not it is the best espresso cappuccino maker on the market is debatable, but it is a wonderful introduction for those who are serious about quality coffee on a daily basis, but without the expense of having to get it from trendy coffee shops.
