Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stevo Nice design but...
We just unpacked this machine and ran it through it's paces with just water, no coffee, to clean any industrial residue.
We chose this one for the front loading feature and it is very cool. Easy to use and they even offer the permanent filter as well as a paper filter option.
However, there are a couple of things to consider. The digital window is not back-lit so good luck reading it in less than bright light. Makes no sense to us. Also, it takes forever to brew. Find a book to read while you're waiting because you are looking at 20 minutes for a full pot. One more thing; they don't tell you that because of the warming plate (useless in my opinion,) you need 8 inches of vertical clearance.
First pot of coffee tomorrow morning. Will let you know how it tastes.

I've had this unit for more than a year. NO more moving the coffee pot to add water or coffee. It stays put under the counter with the handy pull out. We like the coffee to.
We are buying another one to take to our business. Also buying another DeLongi for a gift. Italians know how to make coffee!
No leaking problem if you keep the black plastic liner in place. A guest recently left it out and the coffee and water leaked all over....Not the fault of the unit. GOTTA LOVE IT!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lovemycoffee Best coffee maker I've ever owned!
I purchased this after much research and reading of reviews. This coffee maker is super simple to use, the carafe doesn't leak or spill a drop when pouring and it makes wonderful coffee. I love the frontal fill and the access in the back to hide the cord.The auto shut-off and programmable start was a must have and I love its size and the way it sits under the cabinets. I can't find one fault with this maker......it even arrived earlier than expected.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pleased55 Attractive, yet practical coffee machine
I love this coffee machine due to several features that make it stand out. It fits nicely underneath the kitchen cabinets and because the basket and water dispenser swing out horizontally, you don't need to pull it out first. Secondly, it has an aroma button that makes for more flavourful coffee. Thirdly, it has a warming tray on top for warming your cup while the coffee is brewing. And lastly, it sells at a reasonable price.

We purchased this several years ago, well during a move the unit was dropped and broken. We just bought a different coffee maker. i am so glad I found it now at Home Depot the coffee is not the same.I believe the longer brewing is the seceret coffee is delicious from this pot and the features are convient especially for a shorter person,

This is my first DeLonghi product. I'm hoping it lasts longer than Mister Coffee and the similar manufactures. I don't use the auto timer but wanted the auto off feature. I'm playing with the "Aroma" feature to see if it really makes Better coffee. With it it does take a long time to make coffee

An excellent coffee maker with a really classy style. Looks like diamond plating on top and the easy access water fill that is right in front. Wish it made a pot of coffee a little faster, but other than that, I would recommend it to everyone.

We had seen this product at a friend's house and wanted one. We are pleased with our choice. We like the front loading water well especially. We also like the permanet filter. It has worked well for us. Makes very good coffee.
