De’Longhi Prima Donna Fully Automatic Bean to Cup Espresso/Cappuccino Machine ESAM6620 – Really Good Coffee
Great looking machine which makes great tasting coffee with one caveat. The milk dispenser/frother, the temperature of the milk dispensed is cool enough for a baby to drink, this means every time i make a latte or cappuccino i have to microwave it for 30 sec in a 1000w microwave to get it to a decent heat. This is a well known problem with this machine and looses a star from me because of it.
I bought this machine and returned next day. Great service, used pre paid sticker and company collectedsize of it is hugethe tray is flimsy and difficult to put a glass in little square even when tray is lifted. Bought upgraded model prima donna xs 36.
- Excellent machine – BUT beware of display issues!
- Getting the most from the PrimaDonna 6600.
- Marvellous machine – when it works
I’ve had this for nearly 2 years now and its is used by myself, my wife and my son. We probably drink a total of 10-12 cups per day. I tried a few different kinds of beans but in the end i settled on sainsbury’s continental roast and use the mild taste setting as recommended by some guy on here who gave a very comprehensive explanation of which settings are best to use. Its starting to make a strange noise just before the grinder starts but still works fine and doesn’t sound too serious. I e-mailed de’longhi and they offered to listen to the noise over the phone – i haven’t got round to doing this yet as i am not too worried. I follow the cleaning and descaling instructions supplied and use the de’longhi descaler available on amazon. Update – had for nearly 3 years now and it now displays ‘general alarm’ – have cleaned it as recommended and checked heating coils – they seem ok – may be mechanical fault – apparently will cost between £50 and £150-00 to repair at de-longhi – they are due to collect on monday – will update when returned. Update – turned out to be a thermal fuse failure – cost £100-00 including send and return. I mentioned the graunching noise and they said it could be the grease in the infuser having dried out.
Bought for hubby’s christmas and we are delighted with it. Will save fortune on costa coffees and is more than worth the cost- recommend you buy one now.

This is a really, really good machine. Looks good, coffee’s great and every use is a little bit of theatre.
Lovely coffee at the touch of a button. The de’longhi 6620 produces a perfect cappuccino at the touch of a button, as well as good espresso or plain filter coffee. It is possible to adjust many aspects of coffee production to your own requirements, such as the strength of the coffee, temperature and volume dispensed. The quality of coffee produced is consistently good and, as long as you follow a good maintenance regime (regular cleaning and descaling) there is no deterioration in taste over time. I previously owned the earlier model of this machine, the 6600 so knew how good a cup of coffee could be produced. When it came time to buy a new machine, i had no hesitation choosing another de’longhi. I first decided to buy a bean to cup coffee machine after spending two years working through nespresso machines and finding four different models wanting in various ways (the most significant was that their life expectancy was, according to nespresso, only about two years). We also tried a couple of bean to cup machines that similarly disappointed before finding the de’longhi whilst browsing in the high street. The 6600 was fantastic by comparison to all of the others we had used and lasted five years (it was repaired three times in the last two years) before we decided to get this newer model 6620 and retired the original. Setting up was slightly disconcerting as the manual suggested there should be an on/off switch on the rear of the machine.
