The first reason for it’s popularity, is the most obvious reason. This machine makes excellent and beautiful espresso. The DeLonghi Bar32 features a 35 ounce reservoir. Users can shut off the water moving through the grounds when they have reached their desired amount. The machine works quickly, though, so you don’t have to wait long!
The controls are simple, and very user friendly.
The silver knob on the front has four positions, left to right: preheating water for steam – off – preheating water for coffee – water flowing through the coffee. A red light indicates that the heating element is ready to go. A green light alerts you that the water has reached its proper temperature for steaming or coffee, depending on the mode you have picked. The valve/knob on the top of the Bar32 controls the flow of steam through the nozzle to froth your milk.
The milk frothing nozzle is one of the very best in this price category. The frothing begins very quickly and is a very efficient process.
As the milk becomes frothed, click the control knob over two positions and you will discover that the water temperature is just right to make coffee right away. About 45 seconds later, you’re finished.
