Great coffee, impossible to keep clean
This machine, purchased 2.5 years ago, makes great coffee... consistently, but it’s down fall is that it’s terrible to clean. We have had the descale light not switching off issue like a few others but after about 2years of use.
The ‘cake of grounds’ bursts when being automatically collected in the container and they go all over the inside of the machine, they have gotten into the internal parts that I can’t reach as it’s not a sealed compartment. This makes cleaning the inside a very frustrating and tedious chore. It seems like a really badly...

Great at first.... however
Great machine at first! I'm a barista and self confessed coffee snob. Brought this machine due to reviews at time and reputable brand. Loved it at first, coffee was perfect every time. Then started tasting filthy, even after scheduled cleans with recommend product. That would help for a day or so (daily use machine), then required cleaning again. Water harshness and minerals tested, that's fine.
Extremely disappointed DeLonghi. Would have been better off with a simple pod machine for reliability.
Purchased in August 2017 for $599.00.
looks good on paper but not much good
The unit is advertised as a two cup machine but it can only fit skinny cups if you want to use this feature. The machine is flimsy but no different from most low end machines. My biggest problem was with the people at Harvey Norman who refused to give me a refund within an hour after I purchased the unit to make two cups at a time (I have standard tea cups and they don't fit) After heaps of bad emails
Purchased in February 2020 at Harvey Norman for $200.00.
A good performer so far after 4 months
Purchased from Harvey Norman for $600 NZ pesos. Unit has not had any issues, though grind a little awkward to adjust. Takes fine adjustment to get the best extraction form your coffe, so trial and error was applied here. The brew prcess is quick an efficient with a preinfused shot. Coffee quality is acceptable as long as you use fresh coffee. Easy to empty and refill.

Easy to Use, great tasting Coffee from this machine
I bought this machine to avoid using pods and I have been happily surprised with the ease of use and the great taste of the coffee it produced at the press of a button. Of course, one must choose quality beans, and I had a few trial & errors. However, once I had found the beans I like, enjoying my coffee at a fraction of the price of cafes, is very satisfying! Easy to clean, warnings for full bins and empty water tank. Includes an Eco cycle, which turns off the machine if not in use after 30 minutes.Simple instructions means you only need to read the instruction book once!
Exceeded my admittedly low expectations
I had been feeling really guilty about using pods and decided to reduce my carbon footprint.
Myer had a sale and I bagged the black one as they did not have the silver finish on sale.
I am told that this is their entry model and I was looking for something that was not too large as the Nespresso machine only occupied a small portion of my kitchen counter.
Setting up wasn't too difficult, but as the product guide and certainly other commentators here have said, it takes a few tries before you get the right setting. It took me more than 6 tri...es before I got the blend that I liked and it hasn't disappointed so far. I haven't used the frother as my little one wouldn't afford me that luxury. If one were pedantic, my only complains are that the water canister is just a tad too small and the bean storage could also be a little more generous in size - but then again it's a necessary trade-off that suits my circumstance.
Purchased in June 2019 at Myer Online Store for $529.00.
Does the job
Great machine, upgraded from a manual DeLonghi. Great for making espresso, easy to use, grinds the beans from scratch. Also allows for use of pre-ground coffee (though why would you?) I don't use the frother much so can't vouch for that, but for anyone who likes their coffee black this machine is great.
Replacement for a much loved Saeco
With the sudden death of our old reliable Saeco machine we needed a new one quickly with a house full of visitors descending for a few weeks. Some quick research and a limited budget led us to this model. Very impressed. Makes excellent coffee once you have your favourite settings and beans sorted, Doesn’t need filling or emptying as much as the old one, but does require descaling regularly. Sturdily built, efficient and the coffee tastes good. Can’t ask for more than that.
So Easy to use
Very satisfied with the ease of use and the quality of coffee for an automated machine. Consistent results and simple to maintain. The only issue we have had is the in-built grinder has blocked on the finest setting and needed to be run a few times on the course setting to clear. Enjoy!
Convenience and great
I bought a second factory coffee machine and I am happy with it. It might not be the best but it's great, easy and convenient to use. I have heard that Delonghi service wasn't good but it's pretty good for me. The machine is a bit annoying when I stream milk and have to wait for a while to turn to espresso mode again which I thought it was defected so I emailed them about it.They contacted me and arrange to pick it up within a week but it took 2 weeks to check and drop off which wasn't bad.
I took in my 15 years old magnifica for repairs then checked the showroom to find the new upgraded model on special. Rather than risk more repairs, i decided to invest in a new machine and what a good investment having an upgraded model!
Pros: The new machine is slightly more compact, the steam function more powerful with a number of attractive added features.
I am now able to set the water temperature used to make coffee, select strength of coffee by adjusting the taste and quantity of coffee beans the appliance will grind. I can also adj...
Disappointed with the coffee from this our first fully auto machine .
Our first fully auto machine. As dedicated espresso drinkers the morning shot is disappointing and nowhere near the quality we get from our old delonghi machine now at the shack. Temperature is variable and at times almost tepid. Volume of shots varies considerably and we get nothing like the crema the old machine produces even at the finest possible grind. It just doesn’t seem to “pack enough in” and this reflects in the flavour and texture which could be described as “wishy-washy. I also agree that the way of putting pre-ground coffee in is very awkward and can result in ground coffe being spilled into the inner workings. Looking to revert to a manual to take more direct control over what’s delivered.
This coffee machine is just great, but they could have a few spots improved like the water tank could be a bit bigger so people don’t have to fill up the tank every second day. The other one is the space you put the ground coffee in is ridiculously small...can’t even put the spoon in straight without turning am angle.
Good, once I worked it out
I am satisfied with the quality of the coffee produced by the machine. I had trouble setting it up and working how to use it properly, which did take a while and alot of YouTube videos. The coffee is consistent a d tasty and the temperature is good too. I would say that it does take some patients though. Overall it is ok
Two in one is great!
I love how you can make multiple drinks in the one go very simply to use and simply to take apart and store away under the kitchen bench. The coffee taste very good and the milk taste very fresh and fluffie. Bought this as a gift to my wife and I use it way more
Good Coffee Machine but DeLonghi backup is terrible
The machine is easy to set up and makes good coffee but the backup from DeLonghi is worse than useless.
After following the detailed instructions to set the machine according to our measured water hardness I enquired with DeLonghi how often I'd need to descale.
They advised that the instructions in the User Manual should not be followed and that I should be setting on maximum Hardness Setting no matter what the result was from using the provided DeLonghi test strip.
They then sent me out a water filter which they advised should have come ...
Just Ok with a LOT of room for improvements
I purchased this machine due to becoming tired with the hassle of making coffee with an espresso machine.
This machine works ok but I would not rave about it.
The coffee is weak compared to espresso if you set it to fill the cup with more than 25% water.
The variable height of the coffee spout is only useful for tall mugs - it does not reach down to low/wide coffee cups which means you need to reduce the coffee fill setting to avoid overflowing the cup.
The two coffee spouts are too close together, you can't put two low/wide cups under the...
A good quality coffee machine
The machine easy to operate and provides good quality coffee. The only issue in the machine is the descaling error light. I have descaled as per the instruction but the error light keep flashing. We are not bothered that much as it is still in operating condition. The more we use the machine the quality is getting better compare to the day one. Recommended to everyone, whoever planning to spend that much of money in the coffer machine.
we love it
OMG makes a great coffee, you can set the temperature and we enjoy hot cappucinno every morning with breakfast. It was a little difficult to first use when we brought this item, but after the initial confusion it was straight forward. Very happy with our purchase and def recommend this product
Questions & Answers
Our coffee tastes terrible. We changed the beans, but no improvement. We've cleaned it (twice in one week) to see if it would make a difference, but no. It used to make such lovely coffee. Any ideas? Thanks. René
Your brewing unit may need a clean. It is located in the front where the grounds container is. You will be able to take this out and rinse it with cold water (do not use soap or hot water). While you are cleaning it check if it is still greasy, if it isn't then you will need to get food grade grease to grease the brewing unit.
Also check your grind setting, if you are changing beans then the setting you've previously had it at may not be the best settings for the new/fresher beans. If it is coming out quite watery on an extra strong espresso shot then you may need to decrease the coarseness. This is located within the bean container.
Hi Rene, cleaning the brewing unit did help but I used mild detergent as water didn't clean the horrible taste. In the end I did sell it, its been a huge disappointment and waste of money. Good luck
Thanks for your response. I'll try that.
Dose the machine fit a large cup under the filler?
That depends on the size of your large cup all of our machine have adjustable spouts so you can fit a pretty big mug under there if it is an extremely tall cup it may have to lean in.
will the milk frother as in the eletta fit this model or is there a similar attachment available please. regards steve
Hi Steve, thanks for asking us a question. This model does not fit a container type frother, it only has a wand. So no, it would not fit. Best, De'Longhi
