I really don’t know a lot about espresso makers. Well, truth be told, I knew nothing about them before I started looking for one to buy. That might seem odd, wanting one without understanding them, but I was not buying it for myself. I wanted to surprise my girlfriend with one because she loves drinking espressos. I have tried them in the past, but I just prefer a cup of very strong and very black coffee. I knew she would love to have one though, and I ended up getting her a DeLonghi EC155 espresso maker after learning about it online.
I figured the only way I was going to learn about these machines was if I actually researched them. I looked at a few different ones, but I really liked reading the review about the DeLonghi EC155 model the most. I knew she would not want me to spend a fortune on one, and that is one of the reasons why I liked this model. It cost me less than a hundred dollars, though I would have spent more if it meant making her smile. I knew she would appreciate that price tag too though!
I also liked that it is pretty quiet, but that is not the best thing about it. My girlfriend is not the type to be civil until she has had a few cups of caffeine in the mornings. With this particular espresso maker, she would be able to have two cups in under 30 seconds. While she would never drink that fast, it is nice to know that it can produce that quickly, especially if she has one of her friends over who would like to share a cup with her. All of the reviews were just really good on this particular espresso maker, and I can see why. My girlfriend loves having it. I think when I give her my next gift, a diamond ring, she might be even happier!
