I just can’t keep my eyes open in the morning without a good cup of coffee, so when I saw the DeLonghi Magnifica Super-Automatic Coffee Machine I was quite interested to see what this machine had to offer.
As for its features, the DeLonghi ESAM3300 has a grinder that you can use to get your beans to just the right fineness. The customizability of this fineness is a very useful feature, one that I have enjoyed time and time again. People that drink coffee just don’t know how much the fineness of the grain can impact your overall coffee drinking experience! Thanks to the fact that this machine has a grinder inbuilt really makes the overall value go up a great deal. I loved how they used a burr grinder instead of the shredders they use on so many other coffee machines out there. I want my coffee beans grinded and not chopped up after all!
Pros and Cons
I usually drink espressos in the morning so I wasn’t looking for anything that had a great deal of versatility, but this machine certainly has some of that to offer as well. You’re not just going to get espressos here, the cappuccino setting can cook you up a nice, frothy cup of Joe in no time! One problem that people might have with it is that it doesn’t really have any other settings, but espresso and cappuccino alone are enough to tide you over. You can always go to a coffee shop to get the specialty stuff! If anything, the main con of using this machine is that you can’t use different kinds of beans. This coffee maker works best with medium roast beans that aren’t all that oily.
At a price like this one expects a little more, but oh well. The machine works like a dream and allows you to customize the fineness of your beans, so that covers the lack of versatility as far as bean use goes pretty nicely!
This is a pretty high tech machine too. The interface is easily programmable and you can enter your specifications for the ideal brew into the machine and enjoy a nice cup of coffee at just the push of a button. I work twelve hours a day, so the fact that this machine has made it so easy and quick for me to get my morning coffee is pretty amazing.
I also love how great their customer service is. The help line is open twenty four hours a day, and the people you talk to there are actually pretty helpful and knowledgeable. I was having some trouble setting up my machine when I first got it, but the people that I spoke to were more than willing to help me out and get me sorted.
DeLonghi Magnifica Super-Automatic Coffee Machine was perfect for me and it’s great for you too if you want a nice, quick way to get coffee every morning. It’s a little pricey, but I think it’s well worth it.
