A pump machine is the most traditional and well-known way to make espresso, using the filter holder and ground coffee. The De’Longhi EC820.B with professional-level 15 bar pressure offers the ideal introduction to the world of coffee and a hands-on Barista experience in your own home. The EC820.B Pump-Driven Espresso Maker, in a contemporary black and chrome finish, can make coffee using both ground coffee and ESE (Easy Serving Espresso) pods for added convenience and makes both espresso and cappuccino. The cappuccino system, based on an in-built manual frothing arm, mixes steam, air and milk to heat and create a rich and creamy froth. The self-priming system keeps the EC820.B ready for use at all times. Easy to use, with just two control dials needed for operation: one for steam/hot water delivery and the second to control coffee delivery. This machine has a front loading 1 Liter water reservoir with a water level indicator and optional water filter for the perfect coffee result and can extend the life of the machine. It also comes equipped with a deep, removable dishwasher safe drip tray. The EC820.B also features separate thermostats for the coffee and steam, a cup warmer tray, and a coffee measurer with built in tamper.
