Capable of preparing espresso, coffee, cappuccinos, latte drinks, and more, this super-automatic 1,150-watt machine provides an array of convenient features. Its height-adjustable coffee spouts make it easy to brew directly into espresso, demitasse, or 12-ounce cups, and the instant reheat function keeps the machine at an ideal temperature, no matter how long the interval between cups. The espresso maker also comes equipped with digital programmable menu settings that allow for setting the clock, start time, and one- to three-hour automatic shutoff, as well as adjusting the water hardness and temperature of the coffee. There are five settings for coffee strength--extra-mild, mild, regular, strong, and extra-strong. Plus, three buttons allow for easily choosing the cup size--ristretto (small), espresso (medium), and large (American coffee).
The espresso machine also offers a unique beans-to-brew system that includes an integrated conical burr grinder with adjustable fineness settings that automatically grinds coffee beans right before brewing for exceptionally aromatic espresso. In addition, the unit comes equipped with a patented single-touch cappuccino/latte system, which includes a 25-ounce milk container and two detachable lids, one for frothed milk for cappuccinos and the other for steamed milk for lattes. Place the cup under the nozzle and press the button for a perfect cappuccino or latte every time. The amounts of frothed/steamed milk and coffee are adjustable, and the entire container is detachable, so it can easily be placed in the refrigerator. A unique automatic cleaning function operates with the push of a button, and dishwasher-safe parts provide quick tidying up.
Other useful features include a 7-ounce bean container, a 60-ounce removable water reservoir with a water-level indicator, two stainless-steel boilers for faster recovery and durability, a hot-water spout for tea or hot chocolate, and decalcification system lights that indicate when it's time to clean the machine. Designed and engineered in Italy, the espresso machine measures 15 by 11 by 14 inches and carries a one-year warranty.

Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.April 3, 2017Verified PurchaseDO NOT BUY. Here is why. This is the second Delonghi I have purchased. The first one lasted about six years. This one only last a year and a half. Here is the issue: I contacted Delonghi because the water pressure dropped and would not descale or fill a cup of coffee. After three phone calls with the service/support staff at Delonghi totaling about three hours to troubleshoot the problem I was told to send in proof of purchase in order to receive the Delonghi "white glove" service because the device was still under warranty. Here was the first sentence in the reply from Delonghi after all the calls I made and the proof of purchase I sent: "We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced. Based on the information submitted, we are unable to validate the warranty of your product because it was purchased through an unauthorized retailer.": I bought this item on Amazon - "an unauthorized dealer." BEWARE when purchasing on Amazon.
04062017 Update: After a couple e-mail correspondences with Delonghi and yet another phone call demanding to speak with a supervisor, Delonghi changed their mind and offered to repair the device. Delonghi is now honoring the warranty. It just stinks that I had to go through such grief to get there.December 1, 2017Verified PurchaseWe've had this machine for nearly a year and have used it nearly every day during that time. Between my wife and I, we typically pull 3-6 shots each day. It makes some great coffee! I've barely touched our French press since we received this (and I used to use it every day). It's fairly versatile, very easy to use and maintain, and it has only a few issues that bug me.
Pros: It really is pushbutton easy to use. You can select a short, regular, or long shot from their own buttons, and selecting strength only involves using another button to cycle through the 5 settings. Can't get much easier. Making a latte or cappucino just involves adding cold milk to the container, topping with the appropriate lid, attaching the container, extending the milk tube, and pressing the button. It might've taken longer to type that than to do it. The milk container fits well enough in the refrigerator door.
Cleaning is relatively easy. The brewing unit detaches simply (ONLY detach with the unit is OFF) and just rinses out. The grounds container just dumps out, although there is a corner in that container that traps wet grounds and involves an extra wiping step (not really a big deal, but it can mold). I remove stray grounds from the rest of the interior with a soft cleaning/paint brush and a hand-held vacuum. Even though we've never actually been prompted to do so, we descale on the first of the month, and that's quite easy to do. The milk container lids are not difficult to clean, but they do take some actual washing (although running the steam through via the machine does a great deal).
Regarding descaling, do take the time to test your water with the little, included strip, and then set your water quality with the machine. I understand that the default setting is the hardest water, so a couple minutes of your time on the front end could very well save you a great deal of time down the road if you have softer water.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the coffee is very good. We made only a very slight adjustment to the grind after we got the machine, but that's it (and, to be honest, we probably did not need to do so--I just have to monkey with something).
Cons: My biggest complaint (and it's not a big one) is that you cannot access any menu selections without turning the whole thing on and waiting for it to heat up and go through the initial rinse cycle. That's just a waste of time, energy, wear and tear, and water when all you want to do is set the time, turn off the "auto on" function, or something like that. The machine is either on and ready to make coffee or off and completely dormant (with the menu button just dead). If I could change only one thing, this would be that thing.
A close second thing I would change would to make the safety grill over the mill removable. I'm all for safety, but this thing is a pain if you ever want to change the coffee beans you have in the hopper.
It's a large machine, and it does make some noise, but I don't know that either issue is any different with any other machine (except the new, compact ones).
It's a pretty big machine, and you'llJuly 24, 2016Verified PurchaseIf you are looking for a reliable automatic espresso maker that is simple to use and clean this is it. Our first one lasted over ten years and stopped producing steam. We ordered a new one and it is perfect. My wife discussed the problem with our 1st Magnifica with a factory rep over the phone and they sent us a flexible seal that slides ove the steam tube and we now have two working MGNIFICA DeLonghi coffee makers. We are keeping the older one as a spare and to be sure we always have that cup of cappucciono in the morning. Finally, we have owned several other brands over the years that cost less to buy but did not last more then two to four years and most importantly didn't make as good a cup of coffee or cappuccino.November 25, 2016Verified PurchaseNice system. We are previous owners of Saeco and Jura. Jura just broke down way too often and way too costly and inconvenient to send back and forth to NJ for repairs. This machine makes good coffee but after 2 weeks, noticing grinder is getting stuck (will continue to evaluate). The latte portion is amazingly easy to use.
CONS: small water container and doesn't warn you until it is really low. No warning beans are almost empty so you could make a coffee without adequate beans. Only moderately customizable and not easy to customize. Very slow heating up and rinsing process. No water filtration option and any good coffee lover knows the water is key to a great cup.
PROS: produces a hotter coffee than Jura. Easy access to all bins and removable components easy to clean. Quiet. Small footprint fits easily under cabinetry.March 27, 2017Verified PurchaseWe owned the previous DeLonghi ESAM 3500 for about nine years before we replaced it with the same model. I shopped around and compared the models since and this one still is the best for our needs. Its a lot of money but I'd say it paid for itself in a year.November 17, 2015Verified PurchaseProduct arrived defective - it periodically would not produce coffee. An error message says the grounds are too fine, but even after adjusting the grounds to fully coarse, the same error message occurs and it will not make coffee. It only got worse with time. After 5 months, I emailed the seller, who would not help at all. Beware of the seller (cuccinabella) and think twice before you spend your money on this item.
