Haven’t used it yet but read all the instructions and stroked it a lot.
Excellent coffee, drip tray gets scratched. . Great coffee, easy to clean. Hot coffee (must say to highest setting). Only issue is that the drip tray gets scratched even though it has been used carefully. For such a high ticket item this is not good.
- Brought this for my husband’s 60th – good price for this model and he has used it
- Convenient and consistent frother! Minimal cleaning required. Worth the premium? -Depends on your preferences.
- Fantastic machine
This is a must for a bean to cup machine. If i was a coffee bean i would want to be made into coffee in this great bean to cup machine. It makes fantastic cappuccino’s consistent every time, fully user custom menu for milk and coffee strength, once you have got a grip on its workings this is probably the best coffee maker for the money on the market. Its quiet for a coffee maker and has great features, we love it and make around 12 cups a day every day and it is totally consistent and reliable. Excellent value for money, easy to use, quiet, makes perfect coffee and cappuccino every time, the milk unit is brilliant.
Had it for a few days now and like it. Had intended to get the cheaper delonghi but thought what the heck, certainly not cheap but bean to cup machines aren’t. It’s straight forward to get started although the manual perhaps makes it seem more complicated than it is and could be better. Everything’s customisable, strength, temperature, amount produced. But if you’re used to having a full mug/cappuccino cup (300ml’ish) then by default even the extra long doesn’t fill it as it uses standard servings (i think) so an extra long espresso is 120ml. Some aren’t happy with the cappuccino/milk temperature. I’ve been warming the cups using the kettle so they’re nice and toasty and using milk straight from the fridge. It seems hot enough to me as long as you’re intending to drink it straight away. Not tried nuking the milk so it’s luke warm yet to see what that’s like.

Having had this machine for a few weeks, i could not be more happy with it. It arrived with a water filter and one packet of descaler, although it’s not advertised as coming with these. I also joined the delonghi coffee club and they sent me another two packets of descaler for free and also the option to have a free service of the machine after a year. I have been trying different beans and i’ve yet to have a bad coffee from this machine, although some beans are better than others so you’ll just have to experiment with your own taste. I like americano coffee and if you put a mug under the coffees dispenser and set it for extra long coffee and press two cups it fills the mug to the perfect level and the resulting cup is as good a coffee as you will get anywhere. The milk carafe makes perfect cappuccino’s, latte’s and flat white’s, although i’m not into these myself. Filling the water tank is easy, emptying the grounds container is easy and filling the beans hopper is easy. In fact if i had to sum this machine up in one word, it’s “easy”. Just press the button and it makes a perfect cup every time, easier than boiling a kettle, in fact our kettle is only used for making gravy now, but i could even let the machine do that with the hot water dispenser if i wished.
Excellent replacement for old magnifica model. Having owned a de’longhi magnifica automatic cappuccino machine for 7 years i find this new machine to be an excellent replacement. We well and truly ran the magnifica into the ground and it unfortunately got to the point where all parts were obsolete so it was no longer possible to fix. It pretty much did everything we needed from a machine so looked for something similar and the eletta ticks all the right boxes. As others have said, it’s a tad slimmer and taller than the magnifica but thankfully still (just) sits underneath our kitchen wall units. Interestingly, the bean hopper takes more beans than the magnifica which is great because this represents the greatest faff as it’s housed at the back of the machine, but the milk container holds less which obviously means it needs to be topped up more frequently. I like the option to alter the density of froth as i prefer a “flat white” style froth rather than the fluffier cappuccino option. As others have said, the milk isn’t steaming hot but it’s perfectly acceptable, especially if cups are pre-warned with hot water or using the “rinse” facility on the machine. Using a digital thermometer the milk reached 57. 5 degrees c when using a cup straight from the cupboard and when using a pre-warmed cup.
