With the De'Longhi BCO 421, you get a espresso machine and a filter coffee machine all in one. As well as a delicious espresso, you can also easily make a whole pot of filter coffee with this coffee machine, which is useful for birthday parties. Thanks to the permanent filter, you won't need to buy paper coffee filters to make filter coffee. With this espresso machine, you can make 1 or 2 cups of espresso at the same time. Preheat the cups on the heating plate, so your espresso doesn't cool down as quickly. For lovers of cappuccino and latte macchiato, this machine is equipped with a steam pipe that you can use to steam milk in a jug yourself. This makes this espresso machine a real all-rounder.Note: don't forget to buy a separate coffee grinder for making coffee with freshly ground beans.
