I purchased the Delonghi PUMP espresso machine for my dad for FATHER’s DAY. He will go to a well known coffee establishment every morning and get a LATTE. I thought he could use this machine to make his morning LATTE. Now, he had been talking about doing this for a while, but I wasn’t sure he was serious. This item is a bargain a $199. I also got some really good coffee for him. The one thing I wasn’t sure about was what grinder would work for that model. This is a really cute machine and he thinks that if he gets this process down, he would like to get a “better” model and put this one and take it to the fishing cottage.
