Features of the DeLonghi EC702:
- Dual filter holder allows you to create one or two espresso shots at the same time.
- You can use ground coffee or E.S.E pods (Easy Serving Espresso – which is pre-measured espresso pods)
- Steam wand for frothing milk.
- Features two thermostats, which allows for water and steam to be controlled separately. No waiting necessary!
- Built-in tamper.
- Cup warming tray.
- Self-priming eliminates waiting for machine to start up.
If you love to wake up to a nice cup of Cappuccino, or maybe have it as a pick-me-up drink in the afternoon, you’ll love the EC702’s patented Cappuccino system. The frother in the machine mixes milk with steam to create the perfect froth every single time.
The cup warming tray, which sits on top of the machine, keeps your cups warm always – in an authentic Italian style. This is a feature you see in large commercial espresso machines, so it is definitely a feature much appreciated in a small machine like this one.
The DeLonghi EC702 is made from durable stainless steel. It will not stain, it holds up nicely with heat and it looks sleek on your counter top. Unlike automatic Espresso machines, this one requires some daily cleaning and maintenance work. However, for such an incredible price point, you do not want to miss out on this machine.
