Description

Capable of preparing espresso, coffee, cappuccino, latte drinks, and more, this super-automatic machine features a unique beans-to-brew system that grinds coffee beans right before brewing for exceptionally aromatic espresso. The appliance comes equipped with two stainless-steel boilers that provide excellent heat distribution, as well as an instant reheat function, which keeps the machine at an ideal temperature, no matter how long the interval between cups. In addition, its quiet burr grinder automatically grinds beans and can be set to a specific grinding level, but the unit can also be used with ground coffee if preferred. The unit's front panel offers easily accessible controls for the on/off switch and cappuccino system, as well as for adjusting the quantity of water and coffee to suit individual tastes, from long or short to weak or strong. Its patented cappuccino system rotates 180 degrees to allow for any size milk container, plus the coffee spigot height can be adjusted to accommodate all different cup sizes--from a classic espresso cup to a tall mug. Even more, the unit’s exclusive cup tray keeps cups warm before use, and its three-hour automatic shutoff provides added safety. Other highlights include a 60-ounce removable water tank, a handy water-level indicator, a 7-ounce bean container, an electronic steam and coffee thermostat, rinse and decalcification auto programs, and a removable drip tray for easy cleanup. Made in Italy, the 1,150-watt espresso/coffee machine measures 17 by 13 by 18 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty. From the Manufacturer Capable of preparing espresso, coffee, cappuccino, latte drinks, and more, this super-automatic machine features a unique beans-to-brew system that grinds coffee beans right before brewing for exceptionally aromatic espresso.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Proven Performer For Over 8 Years!, June 12, 2016

This review is from: DeLonghi ESAM3300 Magnifica Super-Automatic Espresso/Coffee Machine (Kitchen)
My absolute love of the Delonghi Maginfica ESAM3300 is hard to describe. It has been a faithful crema steeped friend and morning ritual for at least 8 years, and the current unit I bought as a replacement last week (another ESAM3300) is a testament to why I give this well built Italian Stallion "super automatic" espresso dream machine a SOLID 5 star rating.

Yes - my old unit finally gave out it seems. But 8 years of duty + the fact that I am ordering the exact same model should provide a clue as to the reliability and proven quality engineering of this model. Yes there are many newer models - but for this price point, the ESAM3300 is a champ all the way.

Bottom line: with very few adjustments and some good Italian or locally roasted whole beans, the Magnifica consistently puts out shot after shot of delicious espresso that will FAR exceed anything you could get at most coffee shops. I always used many of the yummy Lavazza beans including the "Super... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Well-designed and makes great Americano, December 10, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: DeLonghi ESAM3300 Magnifica Super-Automatic Espresso/Coffee Machine (Kitchen)
A terrific machine-- nearly five stars, but has a few relatively minor drawbacks (see below)
PROS:
Makes perfect espresso and Americano (the only reason for buying an elaborate machine like this)
Ability to make a double cup with just one touch of a button
Relatively quiet operation (compared to prior machine)
Compact, attractive styling
Balance of water and grounds is infinitely variable, as both are controlled independently by knobs
Easy to clean and de-scale

CONS: Smallish water reservoir, needs refilling often if you drink Americano rather than espresso
Grounds bin is lightweight plastic and has tabs that stick out around the edges. They could easily be broken off, an invitation to future annoyance, as the tabs are clearly there to perform some crucial function.

This review is from: DeLonghi ESAM3300 Magnifica Super-Automatic Espresso/Coffee Machine (Kitchen)
Great little investment if you enjoy good espresso frequently at home. This machine paid for itself already compared to buying at Starbucks everyday. I never thought I'd prefer my own homemade coffee beverages over the big chain either... but now I do! So not only am I saving money but they taste better too! No complaints about this espresso maker,, it puts out 16-24 beautiful and delicious shots a day between my husband and I without a problem. My friends love coming for coffee too! Lattes, cappuccinos, mochas, americanos, macchiatos, frappucinos, iced, you name it I've made it. Simple as can be to use and operate as well. We're very happy with this purchase and highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great espresso with crema! With answers to others negatives, August 29, 2011

This review is from: De'Longhi EC155 15 BAR Pump Espresso and Cappuccino Maker (Kitchen)
I am Italian, born and raised. Moved to US at 30 yrs old. Moved to an area where there's no Italian-American influence, no chance of going out for an espresso. Only Starbucks... no thanks. Thought I could go by without espresso for 6 years (what was I thinking??? I don't know). Then sudden espresso cravings made me buy this espresso machine. De Longhi is a very common brand in Italy for any type of home appliances. I've had this machine for 6 months now, using it every day. It's awesome. Like the espresso cup you'd get in Italy "al bar". It gives a thick layer of "crema" on top of each cup.

Here some answers to other reviewers' cons:

* somebody wrote the water was not coming out and returned the machine: you need to bang the water tank real hard in position, otherwise it doesn't connect. It happened to me first time using it... I thought machine was defective too because coffee was not coming out. My husband banged it in there and started working... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Affordable, Reliable, and Semi-Long Lasting Espresso Machine - Ideal for the Coffee Enthusiast, May 6, 2017
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: De'Longhi EC155 15 BAR Pump Espresso and Cappuccino Maker (Kitchen)
I'm coming up (or just passed) about the three year mark using one of my EC155 machines (one is used much more than the other) and I can say that I've just about reached the end of the machine's lifetime. For the first two years of use, I pulled 18g shots two to three times a day and this past year has been an average of one pull a day in the morning (16g of coffee). If I compare the performance of the machine I use much more often and the machine that has about half a year's worth of use on it, I can definitely say that my three years of heavy use have just about knocked my EC155 out of its full capacity. The power of the pumps in the two machines have a night and day difference - I have to be very careful with how much coffee I load in the portafilter in the machine I use more to make sure it can still push out anything. As a side note, I can still achieve proper crema and pour lattes in both.

Seeing as it's time to replace the dying EC155 I've reached a crossroads that... Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars This is a cheap machine that will almost definitely break down on you within a year. BEWARE!, November 16, 2017

This review is from: De'Longhi EC155 15 BAR Pump Espresso and Cappuccino Maker (Kitchen)
BEWARE!!! This machine does make decent espresso... WHILE IT WORKS. Over the course of about 2 1/2 years, I owned three of these machines. I had been advised that at this price point, about a year is all you can expect so each time there was an issue, I purchased another. The third time, I added the extra three-year insurance plan and figured I would have a decent espresso machine for three years without any further expense.

However, about 2 months into machine #3, metal shards started shaving off the machine and going into the tray - and my coffee! Also, I was having minor leakage problems as well as a lot more noise (like a straining motor) that I'd never experienced before.

DeLonghi customer service was among the worst I have ever dealt with. I was on hold for hours over at least 5 different phone calls. I was promised by more than one rep that they would take over the case and call me back with any updates and you guessed it, that never, ever happened. Each... Read more
