After previously having owned a capsule coffee machine (a which best buy), i bought this machine (also a which best buy). The first thing i realized is that coffee beans that are ground fresh have much more aroma than coffee pod machines. The coffee taste and aroma from this machine is just as good as it gets and is as good as the one i used to make using a manual pump coffee machine. The machine is not very loud and the entire time from pressing to button to getting a full cup (including grinding) is about a minute. There are controls for how fine you want the coffee beans ground, for the amount of coffee powder you want used each time (weak or strong coffee), the volume of coffee liquor per cup. The machine is intelligent enough to tell when the drip tray is full, when the tank needs filling, when the grounds container needs emptying. The only negative i can think of is that the machine is so loaded with sensors that, if any of the sensors develops a fault, the machine will stop working entirely.
Great machine, pity about the adapter. . I love this coffee machine, it was bought to replace a previous one i had had for ten years, this was a big improvement and much easier to clean than the last one and the menu was easier to understand. The one thing i did not like was with it coming from germanyit had a plug adapter and the plug was black and the adapter white, which didn’t work so i had to buy another one, having said that i am happy with the machine. So my rating reflects the adapter problem.
The machine is a thing of beauty, it is quite compact compared to other machines we’ve had. Not too noisy and makes very good coffee. We do use quite large drinking mugs which are difficult to fill, even the extra long coffee isn’t enough. But it is very easy to use and change the style, taste and strength of the coffee you want. We would definitely recommend this machine even for the beginner. Hier sind die Spezifikationen für die De’Longhi Magnifica ESAM04:

Good coffee, happy with my choice, but don’t order the tall latte cups. I’m pleased with this, my first automatic coffee machine. I chose between this and the esam 4200s, which appears to have essentially the same guts but has a different user interface – this one has a text lcd display that tells you what it’s doing, and when it needs more beans, water, grounds emptying or whatever. The 4200s has lights, that light up and flash in various combinations, which seemed less user friendly. S also has a slightly more elaborate frother with a two-position collar; one position for more froth (cappuccino), another for just heating the milk. You can pre-program two specific ‘my coffee’ sizes with this machine, which has a standard and a ‘long’ button. The ‘standard’ espresso button can be set to produce from 20ml to 120ml, the long button from 20ml to 250ml. I haven’t confirmed that they would both result in identical coffees if set to the same volume, but i suspect that is the case. I initially set up the long button to make 175ml for my wife, who prefers long coffees, to discover that it uses two grinds which makes the coffee quite strong. Setting the volume to 125ml (or less) results in one grind. Hot water can of course be added from the spout. There are 5 different strength (referred to as ‘taste’ ) settings from extra-mild to extra strong, which i believe influence the weight of coffee per grind. There are also 4 settings for the temperature of the water used to make the coffee.
Second time i’ve bought a de longhi coffee machine bean to cup. . Great coffee easy to use love it. Love the new display makes it really easy to use. My last machine lasted 10 years. Looking forward to a long and happy relationship.
