The Philips EP2030LatteGo makes three drinks, in fact two: espresso and cappuccino. Well, you should agree that it’s silly to make coffee without foam in a coffee machine, for this there are more budget options of equipment.

The perfect espresso. The coffee machine “sucks” everything out of the coffee beans. A drink is strong enough even at the lowest setting.


Philips EP 2030 Cappuccino Maker

Automatic milking with LatteGo milk dispenser.

The process works like this: first the machine grinds the coffee beans, then it pours the milk foam into your cup, and after that comes the espresso.

Milk, coffee, crema distributed in clear cup.

The amount of both milk foam and coffee increases when you change the serving volume.

Small beverage

Cup capacity 120 ml, brewing time 1 min. 15 s.

Medium batch

Volume – 170 ml, brewing time 1 min. 22 s.

The milk is frothy, stable and dense. Temperature and fat content don’t matter as much, we’ve tried it with different kinds of popular milk from the lowest-priced supermarket chain and always get good foam.

Philips Coffee Machine EP 2030: Fill Water

On an emotional level, the coffee machine




– Such a taciturn man in a black suit. A man of action, without showing off. It does everything clearly, quickly, quietly, without fuss and unnecessary gestures. An excellent specialist, even a perfectionist, offers only the best, but without any frills. No latte or hot chocolate, just a classic recipe. Not fussy, but he appreciates cleanliness – you have to pour out the liquid from the tray more often than the coffee grounds compartment is filled.

Noise level

Philips EP2030LatteGo is quiet. And this is very important for home use.

Maximum noise level – up to 80 dB during rinsing and grinder operation.
