I love my coffee machine!!!
It makes great coffee and is so easy to use. The coffee is consistently good and hot enough if you don’t have too much milk in it. I have my perfect coffee set in the machine and now all I have to do is press the button!!!
My coffee maker is indispensable
Eletta is an excellent coffee maker for the home. I find it is easy to use and maintain. Not too noisy, and produces coffee at the right strength and temperature. (I do heat my cup first.) The milk heating function, I find the best way is to not use the jug, I just use the steam function. Easy to maintain.
The worse coffee machine ever!
The DeLonghi Eletta Cappuccino ECAM45760B was a regrettable purchase. We had other Delonghi coffee machines for more than 20 years and now purchased this supposedly ‘fully automatic’ coffee making machine to make our life easier. But we’re frustrated not long after three months of use. The coffee taste weak and not hot at all, it’s like drinking off the tap, you get an error to empty the grind container while it’s not even half full. It doesn’t take French beans. I’ve contacted the customer service to fix the machine if it’s fixable at all, but...they’re the worst customer service ever. After a few days of fussing me around, they decided to take my request and send me forms to pack my machine and call them for arranging a carrier for pick up. It’s one full week now and no one still called me back for scheduling a carrier! They try their best to give up on your warranty so beware!!! Delonghi is not as good as it’s used to be sadly! I’m going to take this to VCAT and get my lawyer involved.
Purchased in April 2019 for $1,100.00.
Very easy to use and makes great coffee
The Eletta makes beautiful creamy coffee and it’s fully automated functions plus self-cleaning (including on the removable milk canister) features make it so practical and easy to use. We love it and use it every morning for our take-away coffee on the road to work.
What a work horse!!
Our machine we use for work. had it nearly 3 yrs. It has made over 34 000 coffees. Just died. No coffee coming out of spouts.Steam, water and milk still works. We descaled it every month. Highly recommend it.
Does it get any better?
Our delightful Elleta coffee machine died this morning after making 5686 coffees over six years. Without any hesitation I drove to Costco and brought home a new one tonight. NUF said.
It still grinds and make the coffee but it won’t make the milk.
Delonghi Eletta Cappuccino
I just received the machine this afternoon and the machine showing General Alarm, after turning off and on press Latte Button, it stuck there showing "Latte Preparation Underway" for more than 10 minutes and nothing comes out.
Even pressing reset back to factory default. Remove the water tank and open the cover and pressed the red button to reset diffuser also remained the same. What sort of product quality is this machine?

Has to be one of the best coffee machines on the market
Once you get the setting to your liking it makes a great coffee every time. Not much clean up required after use which I love. Just move the dial to self clean then remove the milk container and wipe the nozzle. Milk container goes in the fridge to keep any left over milk cold. can program milk and coffee levels on multiple buttons. Easily adjustable degree of frothing. Decaf is possible by adding powder to special hopper each time (once per cup) but selecting back and forth between the modes takes a little practice and concentration. Had the m...achine for about a year now - oh yeah, and you can set it to turn on at the same time each morning which also turns on the warming tray on top where you can leave a couple of cups so they are warm and ready for your brew by the time you et out of bed. I absolutely love this machine. Just to be clear - my machine is called "Eletta Top" but the model number looks the same as does the picture.
Purchased in February 2018 for $1,299.00.

Cheap & Nasty
This machine is a big disappointment, weak coffee, warm coffee, you lose the settings if the power goes off and the instruction manual is very disappointing. Have owned a DeLonghi Magnifica for 8 years has been a brilliant machine at half the price. The Eletta is not easy to setup and get the required coffee taste you will use lots of beans and milk and will have to use a microwave to get a hot coffee. Our machine broke down after 4 months of use and had to be sent away something in the milk pump failed ????? got it back and had to go through the setup again still makes lousy coffee would swap for another Magnifica.
Beans won’t autofill
I had the previous one and loved it. This one has a flawed design. The beans won’t go down most of the time! I called and they said that I couldn’t use French Roast—too oily? So I changed from my favorite beans and still it didn’t work. Then I was told to only put a very small amount of bean unlike the old one which you could fill. For $1700+ this is a regrettable purchase. wish they would exchange!
Horrible machine. Can’t wait to get rid of it
This machine is horrible. Have tried various beans and settings. We’ve given up. It’s a dust collector now. Can’t wait to get rid of it. Delonghi customer service is pretty average.
After ringing to see if we can get a Delonghi expert to see if we are not using the machine correctly, we were told to go to there service centre and would have to pay something like $100-$150 an hour for the privilege. Are you friggen serious? What, was a plumber going to show me how to use it? Pathetic
Great coffee machine
I have had the Eletta for 4 weeks now and we use it every day. The Eletta is very easy to use and maintain. The milk container is easy to clean and put back in the fridge. It makes perfect Capachinos and Lattes every time. The long black function slows down the brewing so you get a stronger coffee. I find the water temperature is just right.

A little over glorified
The machine requires constant washing and rinsing. This is quite annoying because when I turn it on in the morning I have to wait. Furthermore, it takes a while to get ready and make the coffee. The noise often wakes my wife up to so I guess it acts as a second back up alarm clock.
Respect for coffee science will get you a long way
Coffee is a science. I've discovered that bean to cup still requires the individual to respect the basic rules of coffee to get the best out of it. Nothing can be truly 'auto' in coffee land if you have a penchant for quality.
What you have, though, is a machine that auto doses, tamps, and consistently pours a good shot - once you've set it up.
So here's my story: with two young kids and no more time in the morning to spend slaving over manual coffee processes, I sold my Expobar Office Control and Macap M4D grinder and - with great hesita...tion - pounced on an offer that seemed too good to be true - an Eletta for $900 at Good Guys. I'd heard great things about these machines, and also bad things. My observation is that the bad reviews were being given by people using poor quality beans (eg, those from the supermarket) and who didn't observe coffee science. Sure enough, I was right - this is a fantastic machine, and here's my tip for a great quality shot that will serve as an excellent espresso and/or base for a milk drink:
Amazing coffee - but read the manual and reviews!
I purchased this coffee maker last week. I was hesitant, as I like my coffee very hot and so many reviewers said their coffee was cold, but I have found that after adjusting the heat settings, my coffee is hot enough to burn my mouth. No seriously, I burned the roof of my mouth after being a little too excited to drink my coffee straight from this machine.
This machine IS fiddly. It took a night of making espresso after espresso and READING THE MANUAL to get the grind and taste right for our beans, after a few days on the finest grind the co...ffee started coming out at a drip and tasted like acid. Seems the machine settled into its stride and I had to dial the grinder back from 1 to 3 which seems to have fixed everything and coffee tastes wonderful again. I suspect I will have to do this same song and dance every time I put a new type of beans in. Which is fine, the price of perfection and all. :) I like that you can calibrate the machine to make a cappucino that fits your size of cup, but it's a bit weird to do and takes more trial and error than usual because it puts the milk in first, then the espresso. I suspect this is to keep your coffee hot. In any case I had to program it quite a few times to get the cappuccino juuuuust right in strength and taste for my favorite mug. So worth it. The milk frother seems to work well, but I have yet to use the manual steam wand. I like that it has a clean function which cleans it after every cup made. The machine itself also rinses before and after every coffee, so I leave a cup on the tray to catch the rinse water. I spent way to much money on this machine so will never put anything other than bottled or filtered water through it. I am hoping that with care and attention I can get many years out of this machine.
Great coffee machine. Makes good coffee. The family love it. Easy to use. Only downside is that the milk is not heated hot enough automatically but can be heated further with the steam knob. But otherwise a really good machine. The best thing is being able to use our own beans.
I like that there is a cup warmer.The machine is really great at coaching you through the many steps in keeping things running. It will let you know when you have to reload the water tank, empty the grounds, change the milk froth settings from clean. There is quite a bit of function as well as it's share of maintenance to this machine wonderful machine, fortunately the manual is quite extensive and has answered all of my questions so far.
We are really happy
We are really happy with the Delonghi Eletta. Makes fantastic Cappucino with great froth. Simple one tough operation makes it easy for guests to help themselves. We've had this for 3 weeks and we have no complaints. During the initial setup I couldn't find the water hardness test strip. I called Delonghi Service and was pleasantly surprised by their eagerness to ensure any issues were resolved. Turned out the Test Strip was taped inside the Owner's Manual. Problem solved.
Such a great product! Easy to use, clean, maintain and makes a ripper coffee!!
Its so hard to find a machine that ticks all the boxes. I recently switched from pods as i wanted a 'proper" coffee. We did quite a bit of research and we are not disappointed. If your an 'espresso' only drinker, it may not be worth the price tag but great if you love a good milky coffee.
Can't live without it
best coffee machine in the world, number one, the quality of the coffee produced by the machine is fantastic and I love cappuccino with creamy milk on it which is produced by this machine. quality of the machine is really good because we use same one in our office since 3 years ago and wow! it working non stop there.

Questions & Answers
Descaling flashes along with standard taste. trying to descale but it just flashers. Unable to descale any suggestions?
I recently bought the elette cappuccino top machine and i am getting these weird noise right before the coffee comes out. Sort of like something is jammed but still squeezing. And then i realised now that there is a different noise that comes before coffee comes out. Like a click hit noise. Another problem is the right sprout of coffee stops delivering coffee before the left sprout. Is that an issue?
It is normal for the grinder to make some noise before the coffee pour however, if you believe these sounds are unusual please call the team on 1800 126 659 so we can identify if there is an issue.
Don’r Bother as the DeLonghi representatives no longer seem to be responding to requests for assistance
