Not worth the money

published

We have had a few coffee machines and this is the worst we have had yet. I managed to get our old Sunbeam Toronto repaired after being so disappointed with this machine.
It got one star because hubby liked it frothing they milk for him. We have had the magifica, we have a small travel delonghi we use for travelling so i have had a few delonghi coffee machines to review on experience. This machine will now become an emergency machine.

Purchased in October 2020 at JB Hifi Home for $1,999.00.

Love it, but

published

Have had my Maestro for 2 months and love using it. It’s everything I love in a machine. Finding that my coffee (tried all my proven blends) is more bitter than with previous machines and can’t seem to reduce the bitterness.

Purchased in November 2020 at Myer for $1,900.00.

Fantastic coffee machine

published

Bought this machine a couple of weeks ago when my old pod machine died. Felt real beans was the way forward....and I’m so glad I did. We had a zoom session with Heather who was awesome and gave us some barista tricks to functions, menus and making the perfect froth.
This machine is so user friendly, my 7 year old can still make coffee with the automatic milk frother.
Everything you need to get started and work through to set your coffee machine up is in the manuals or easy to view YouTube clips online.
Cleaning and maintenance appears to be easy as well.
We got it at a great price, with bonus gift pack making this a difficult deal to pass up.
I will give updates as we move along to see if this machine holds up.

Delonghi La Specialista Maestro

published

I am most impressed with this machine. Great results in making my various coffees with great taste and consistency. I have never experienced a true coffee flavour until I received this coffeemaker and made my own drinks, Lattes and Cappuccinos regularly. Most enjoyable even the way the temperature is set is perfect. Absolutely rapt with this machine.

Purchased at The Good Guys Online store.

Best of both worlds

published

I purchased this recently because I currently have a Delonghi fully automatic but I’ve always felt that the milk was not quite hot enough. This machine gives me the best of both world because I can now froth the milk myself or the machine does it for me. I was shown by Suzy, Delonghi QLD rep the in and outs of the machine. Very happy and I’ve always trusted the brand De’Longhi.

Purchased in November 2020 at Harvey Norman.

DeLonghi Maestro - Awesome Machine!

published

This machine does it all! It has the automated functions we need to make high quality coffee fast, with little effort, as well as the option to be used manually for more customised brews.

I had Suzy Harper, the DeLonghi QLD Sales Rep, demonstrate all the great features of this machine in a one-to-one lesson at Harvey Norman. The Maestro is easy to use and has a wide range of options to personalise each setting to get the coffee you love every time, remembering your preferences the next time you use it.

Love this machine, would recommend to anyone.

Hi Renny, for this particular machine, yes the cappuccinos are hot. Since this is a manual machine you can heat up the milk with the steam wand to however hot you would like.
The best places to look around for the best price would be at https://delonghicoffeemachines.com.au/ and this will also tell you which stores near you are selling the Maestro :)

Lynsey asked

The coffee is hot enough how can I make it hotter without using the Manual streamer?

Hi Lynsey,
You can customise your length of pour for both coffee and milk with the "MY" button if your using the auto milk carafe. If you want to learn more about your machine you can book a one on one with a coffee expert who can go through how to customise your coffees at: https://www.delonghi.com/en-au/live-coffee-expert#

We have looked in the manual and there is no option to increase the temperature it’s is set at 5 also out coffee being dispensed into the tamper is not working correctly now when we got it it was fine at 15 now it’s down to 9 and still to much coffee so we have to scrap it out every time

DeLonghi
DelonghiDeLonghi

Hi Lynsey,
The best way to increase the temperature on the automatic milk would be to customise your drinks to have around 40% coffee and 60% milk. The temperature of the coffee will increase the temperature of the milk. The way to customise is linked below for you, and if you are having trouble you can book in a one-on-one with us, the link is above. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFDmmeKTjEQ

As for the ground coffee. You will need to adjust the settings for the bean as the same settings will not work properly on older bean or newer beans. If you have the dose level on 9 and it is still too much for your basket, try decreasing the settings.
