You like cappuccino but he prefers filter coffee... here's the machine to keep everyone in the household happy.

  • Steam nozzle heats and froths milk for creamy cappuccino.
  • 'Flavour saver' feature increases the brewing time of filter coffee for a full, intense flavour; your glass carafe of freshly brewed coffee stays hot on the warming plate.

"Perfectly fine for a coffee novice"

star star star star star

I bought this after reading reviews and finding another DeLonghi coffee machine was among Which's best buys.I should own up here and say that I like my coffee very milky and with sugar so I can't give an expert opinion on how the coffee tastes, except to say I like it very much. It's easy to use, though takes a while to remember the knacks to each setting. I will say that this coffee machine, unlike others does need a new filter in each lot of filter coffee (not expresso) unlike other coffee machines with a mesh filter. Though I have just seen a permanent coffee filter on this website which might fit?The downside is the steamer function, which is one of the main reasons I chose this model. It works fine and froths up my milk like a charm, unlike the complaints I read about for different coffee machines. The problem is that the nozzle doesn't extend down far and that in the manual it says that milk can triple in volume when frothed. This means you need to find a container where you have enough room for the milk to expand, and enables the nozzle to actually reach the milk pre-frothed. Sorry if I'm not explaining it properly!! Also, the frother doesn't heat the milk up brilliantly (it might do if I stood there for a few minutes holding the jug up) so I whack it in the microwave for a minute or so and the milk froths in seconds.Another note to compliment Lakeland, without going into too much detail, about getting this product to me in time for Christmas. A massive 10 stars for Customer Service to them.

"DeLonghi BCO255 Coffee Machine"

star star star star star

Bought this machine 5 February 2009 and to date I am very pleased with this purchase. I have put it through its paces and for the money it performs very well indeed and both the drip and espresso give good coffees. I bought this machine after looking at a large number of coffee machine reviews, I was initially going for a more expensive Krupps but was disappointed by the lack of good reviews on the Krupps. Our previous machine was a £30 Russel Hobbs drip machine which we had for six years but was not used very much on account that it did not make or keep the coffee hot enough and produced clouds off steam. This DeLonghi is a proper coffee machine and I would certainly recommend it. Lakeland is also worthy of mention. A minor problem sent to them by email was promptly dealt with BY PHONE first thing next day. Good customer service.

My immediate disappontment with this machine is that it needs and endless supply of PAPER filters.I suppose I should have read the reviews, had I done so, I would have been warned and I would not have purchased it. I think the catalogue should make this clear.I may yet return it.

support_agent A note from the team

I'm sorry that on this occasion the product wasn't as expected. We'll be in touch shortly. Please note: the reuseable universal my kitchen coffee filter (ref: 12292) is compatible with this machine.

"Fabulous machine !"

Read the reviews here but also some other websites which had better reviews than here - I didnt want a pod machine as I enjoy tasting then buying coffee from different places and the flexibilty that brings, so have gone from a cafetiére, percolator and others to this which does it all. It is perfect, feels and looks great it's easy to use with easy to see water measures, accessories and great instruction booklet too. Whilst it is quite large in size compared to the pod machines it gives such variety it couldn't really be much smaller and is much more of a professional I think. All units work at same time if required. Milk was plenty hot enough for me, coffee steaming hot from both sides, and I don't see it a problem to use paper filters or the Lakeland reusable currently in the sale, in fact paper is easier and less messy actually. Very very happy - read some other reviews from other wesbites if in doubt, we dont regret buying this at all.
