Loud, takes up worktop space, looks amazing. This appliance looks absolutely gorgeous – i have added some photos to the top left of this page. It has quite a large footprint, so you might want to bear this in mind if you have limited worktop space. It is a very nicely engineered piece of kit. The best feature, by far, is the aroma that it produces; simply divine. This will be relished by coffee enthusiasts, but it’s not for small kitchens. When you first start using it, you have to do a bit of work experimenting with the strength settings. But once that’s done, it’s dead easy to use. I like that it has two compartments for coffee. You can set it up so that you have coffee beans in the big compartment and instant coffee (maybe decaf in the other).
This is a coffee lovers dream. Once you have got used to the set up and the flashing lights, you can honestly make a cup of coffee exactly to your requirements. I am a coffee lover but usually only have 1 cup of latte a day. This gives me exactly what i want including lovely creamy milk. I thought i would feel guilty about spending this much on a coffee machine, but i really don’t. If you are fussy about your coffee, then this will give you the satisfaction of a perfect cup every time.
- Fantastic Coffee Machine – don’t be fooled appearances – inside its the same as the top of the range!
- good customer service from Delonghi
- Quick and consistent
Great for the serious coffee drinker. Easy to set up and simple to use once you get the hang of it. Load in your coffee beans and water and away you go. The machine then warms your cup, grinds fresh beans then makes the coffee wow. Easy to adjust for all strength of coffee as well. It is a little noisy but only a little. It is large and takes up a fair amount of kitchen surfaces. So if you love good coffee and have space buy it today.
Fantastic coffee machine – don’t be fooled appearances – inside its the same as the top of the range. I have to admit automatic bean to cup espresso machines are a bit of a passion of mine. My family have various machines which i’ve been able to test out (siemens & gaggia) and i’ve had the top of the range delonghi primadonna esam6600 (the one with the milk jug that makes cappuccinos, lattes and latte machiatos at the touch of a button) for the past 6 years, so i believe i’m well placed to review the new delonghi esam 04. I’ve been using this unit for my morning coffee for the past week and i must say that i am impressed. In a head to head comparison with the primadonna (which is almost 3 times the price) it performs excellently. Pros:same pressure (15 bar) as the primadonna. Exactly the same working parts inside – same infuser (the bit that the ground coffee is expressed through) same grounds container. Faster to heat up after switching on. Energy saving – eco mode which results in better than a energy rating. Cons:mostly cosmetic – the exterior is silver plastic while the primadonna is stainless steel and chrome. Analogue display versus primadonna digital display – all the same basic functions though, including indicator to tell you when to empty grounds container and when to descale and buttons to set the temperature and water hardness. No milk jug – which means you have to manually froth the milk. Actually this is a not really a negative.

I bought this because i was fed up with the mess i always made with my manual espresso machine, and that i could never be bothered grinding beans, which i prefer. I don’t like the pod or coffee bag system as it’s a standard measure and i like different strengths at different times of the day. This machine does it all, even has a height adjuster so you can have a small or tall cup, as you desire.It can use ground coffee or it can grind beans, all at a touch of a button. You can adjust the grind easily. The only con is that the water reservoir is a wee bit small and needs to be filled – easily enough – more than once a day which is a minor inconvenience. As an entry level machine i think it’s got what it takes.
This is everything you could want for a good cup of coffee,it is effortless to use once you get in the swing of it,we found if you want more than one cup of coffee it’s best to make them first then do the milk frother,otherwise it takes time for the cooling. Very disappointed in the hot plate,it has no warmth at all. I would definitely recommend it as a good buy.
