DeLonghi Stilosa EC260 Espresso Machine
The perfect beginner's espresso machine, the DeLonghi Stilosa comes with everything you need to pull a good shot out of the gate. Single and double-shot pressurized baskets offer flexibility for fresh ground, pre-ground, or ESE pod options, while a panarello-style steam wand makes texturing and heating milk for lattes a breeze. A new and improved model on the same platform as the EC155, the Stilosa still carries its predecessor's stainless steel boiler and all-manual controls—all in a fresh-designed, cabinet-friendly layout that makes for a great introduction into home espresso.
- Pressurized Portafilter - The 51mm portafilter comes with both single and double pressurized baskets.
- Stainless Steel Boiler - A tiny but mighty steel boiler comes to brew or steam temp quickly.
- Compact Case - The Stilosa's kitchen-friendly 8x10 footprint fits almost anywhere.
- Assisted Steaming - The Stilosa comes equipped with a panarello-style steam wand for easy milk texturing.
- Water Level - Keeping an eye on your water level is easy thanks to the Stilosa's water level view; and refills are simple with a top-loading removable reservoir.
- Where it Counts - The epitome of no-frills, the Stilosa still packs in a stainless steel boiler mounted right into/above the group—meaning shots are hotter than the competition.
- Into the Spring of Things - DeLonghi has added a spring to hold their portafilter baskets in! A small change that makes for much-improved usability.
- Small Baskets - The Stilosa's pressurized baskets are on the small side, classic Italian 7g shot sizes are the norm.
How Does it Compare?
The Stilosa upgrades on DeLonghi's previous entry-level model, the EC155, with redesigned casing and an improved portafilter and drip tray.
