    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)

    I’m going to make reference to the older DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM3300 during this review. I’ve had that machine for quite a few years, and it has served me well. I was fortunate enough to get this new version via Amazon Vine, so I feel I can compare the two in case anyone is looking to upgrade.

    First off, this one has a few more bells and whistles, e.g. the self-contained milk frother, rather than just the milk spout. This means it’s super easy (and cleaner) to make frothy milky coffee drinks, which will definitely be a bonus for many potential customers, but also means one has a little less control over the process.

    The new Magnifica takes up almost the same footprint, but is perhaps a little slimmer and sleeker while being a tad deeper. It’s also a bit quieter. Set up was easy, and it primed quickly and efficiently and I was ready to make coffee instantly. There is a water filter if you need it, and a handy paper strip to test your water hardness. There is a full instruction manual and a simple color easy-start guide which makes this machine very straightforward to operate.

    So first off, the pros: Well, the espresso shots from this machine are as good if not better than from the old one and produce a nice amount of crema once I got the grind a little finer and the pour a little slower. I’m gonna say this straight out: while this machine makes a decent, serviceable espresso drink, it’s still no way as good as hand-pulling a shot yourself using a manual machine, nor as good as you’d get in a proper espresso bar, being aware, of course, that both those require good skills and training. It might not even be as good as the Nespresso machines out there, but it makes up for it in cost over time and flexibility, and it still beats out many coffee shop offerings for both cost and often taste, especially as you can buy beans from anywhere and use them in the machine. Best of all of course, this machine is simple to operate and extremely convenient, and I still drink a couple of shots before work rather than forking out $4+ a day at any of the chain coffee shops.

    As mentioned, the self-contained milk frother is a bonus, but I wish it would allow the ability to just heat and add milk without the froth — but still, froth is easily dissipated with a quick stir. The way the machine can clean the milk nozzle after use is nice, too. Where the coffee beans go is now sealed — yay! The old Magnifica had a flip lid, this new one is relatively airtight (though I still keep most of my beans in a BeanVac anyway).

    Some minor negatives (and not deal-breakers by any means): when I first switch it on and the machine does its little rinse cycle, the hot water pools on the grate whereas on the old Magnifica it would always shoot down the holes. This means I always need to wipe the tray/grate before I put my cup under. I guess the holes are either a little too small, or the nozzles are just not as precisely aimed (and yes, I have put the nozzles at low as they can go). Second negative is cleaning the main brewer. The old Magnifica let you pull out the brewing unit for clean-up from the front, this new one is behind a door at the side behind the water tank, so that has to be removed first. This is a minor hindrance because you only need to clean that out once a month or so, but it’s still a little different. On the positive side, I’m seeing less dust and better puck disposal than in the old Magnifica which had a strangely-shaped tray that wouldn’t always catch the pucks. Also — see update below for more on this.

    The machine also auto-shuts off rather quickly. I guess this is good for energy savings, but I wish it stayed awake a bit longer. If you’re using the milk frother, I recommend doing the clean cycle straight away as the machine switches off after a few minutes. Then again, if you try and use the milk frother with the dial in the “clean” position, it will prompt you to clean it anyway. I guess I got used to the old Magnifica staying on for a few hours at a time.

    I still think this is a good machine and a nice upgrade on my previous one. That one, with its analog dials really helped me dial-in the perfect set up for precise taste/strength/amount, while this one has fewer settings. However, it does such a good job straight out the box that I’m OK with the additional automation and the extra ability to create very nice cappuccino or latte drinks simply.

    I’ll update this review if I discover anything else as I’ve only had the opportunity to use it for a few days so far.

    Updated July 30: OK, the water spilling from the nozzles onto the grate instead of down the little holes every time I switch this on is still happening. As no other reviews mention it, I don’t know if it’s just my machine, or something to do with my particular settings. Admittedly, it’s a minor thing as all it takes is a paper towel to clean up…

    Sleek machine, consistently delicious drinks, easy to use (after you read the instructions). Feeds my coffee addiction!, July 19, 2015

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
    First of all, let me state that I received this machine for free so I could use it and review it. I am in no way affiliated with the company, so this is my honest review of the item. Secondly, note that this a review from the point of view of a barista- I have about 5 years of experience between working in a coffee shop in college, and again, most recently, during some weekends throughout the school year + during the summer (I am a full time teacher otherwise!). Finally, when I make lattes and cappuccinos at home, I use a Moka pot to brew espresso on the stove and an Aeroccino machine to froth milk. It’s been a fine way to make my favorite drinks, but can take awhile and sometimes it would be nice to have something a bit more automatic (it’s easy to burn espresso on the stove/with the Moka pot if you’re not careful! I find it difficult to make consistently good coffee with it).

    My first impressions of the machine- it is very sleek, somewhat heavy (not a problem for me, but just an observation), not too big, and it was packaged well. The various compartments are intuitive to put back together if you take them apart, but you definitely need to read the instructions before using the machine for the first time. That part was a little obnoxious- the instructions are quite detailed and lengthy- and I’m the type of person who would rather have someone just SHOW me what to do. It would be nice if the company had the manual PLUS access to visual instructions, like a link to a YouTube video or a DVD of info that would come along with the machine.Needless to say, I figured it out and eventually had my machine running. Note that in the instructions, it does say that it takes 3-4 brews before the espresso tastes the best.

    Other things:

    – WATER HARDNESS: When you first set up the machine, it will have you do a hardness test on your water. The machine “knows” how often you need to descale it, based on your water hardness, and will notify you as needed (cleaning fluid comes with the machine).

    – WATER FILTER: I like that the machine also comes with a water filter (it says you should replace it about every 2 months, but if you do not use the machine often, you’ll have to replace it after about 3 weeks).

    – ADDING COFFEE: I LOVE that you can either add whole beans to the machine, and it will grind them as needed (and yes, the grind can be adjusted if the machine tells you it’s too fine), and you can also use pre-ground coffee. I have some espresso already ground for my Moka pot, and I’m excited to be able to use it in the machine.

    – COOL FEATURES: the machine has neat features like changing the brew strength of the espresso; there’s a 2x feature to brew a double shot or increase the amount of milk in your drink; it has a “clean” feature for the froth wand and steams it clean, like a barista does with the big espresso machines; the top of the machine has a cup warmer; you can adjust the espresso nozzles to come down closer to the cup, which helps make the espresso creamier; and so much more.

    – CLEANING: I haven’t had to do a full cleaning of my machine yet, but after I brewed a couple shots, it was simple to take out the bottom tray and rid of any water that it caught + clean out the espresso grounds. The milk container is dishwasher safe and can be washed as needed (and should be washed often, it suggests).

    Overall- it’s an awesome machine that makes great coffee shop-quality drinks. The froth is great, the shots are delicious….the mechanization of the machine makes it so easy to use (once you get the hang of it). While a Moka pot and an Aeroccino (my old way of making fancy drinks) are definitely easier to clean/maintain than this machine, I do like the automation and consistency in the taste of the drinks. On the con side, the Moka and Aeroccino have fewer parts and are less likely to break (or are at least not too expensive to replace)- this machine has so many working parts that if it breaks, it might be hard to fix (it does have a warranty with it, of course).

    I find that with having experience as a barista, it was easier for me to understand how to work and clean the machine; if you are not as familiar with “fancy” coffee drinks, it might take you a bit longer to get the hang of it. But once you do, it will be smooth sailing! I can see this machine functioning in a home (if you can afford it….it *is* quite expensive), in an office, or even in a restaurant. I can see small restaurants using a machine like this to make some good espresso drinks. It wouldn’t do well in a place with super high coffee demand- you would want a bigger machine for that for sure. But for personal use/small business use, it is quite perfect.

    I am pleased! My machine will definitely be used often!

    and feel I got a great deal ($1050), December 20, 2015
    By 
    Bob

    This review is from: De’Longhi ECAM23260SB Magnifica Smart Espresso & Cappuccino Maker, Black (Kitchen)

    I purchased this machine through an Amazon seller, so my verified purchase will show under a different product, but in the event my review is overlooked there, thought I would share my comments here, as I found the reviews here to be helpful, but wanted to add perspective of someone who was in the market for a fully automatic machine, and did a lot of research on amazon and elsewhere.

    I find it incredibly challenging to accurately use a star rating for this product because there are features, and there is value. I purchased this coffeemaker around Black Friday, and feel I got a great deal ($1050), most places I have seen this for sale it’s between $1300 and $1500; and for the price point I got it at, it is a great value and worthy of a 5 star rating. Now, the other side of this is that I very nearly returned this machine, because despite doing all of the things it promised to do; after researching many brands, and many price points for fully automatic makers; I wasn’t sure this did everything I wanted, and it doesn’t do everything I want; but I ultimately decided that paying another $1400 to get a couple of additional features wasn’t worth the money. I’l try to explain below; I should mention that this was a drastic switch for me; as we have used a French Press for many years; though through this process, I’ve discovered my wife has a love for lattes; and a strong opinion on what makes a good cup; I am less discerning on specialty drinks, as I mainly drink coffee; though, with this machine I am enjoying more of these specialty drinks now. I mention this, because while I did a lot of research, my taste buds may not be as refined as some. I will not exhaustively review this machine, as you can find many reviews on amazon and elsewhere that meticulously cover every feature and benefit, I’d rather focus on the issues that influenced my decision.

    What I liked, and what the machine delivers:

    This machine has all of the features I wanted, and did so at a lower price point than any other brand. These features include: Ability to make coffee, cappuccino latte machiattos (frankly not sure if there is a difference between latte and latte machiatto or if it is just terminology), and theoretically I can make hot chocolate too (I’ll discuss later). There are some user controls which include height adjustment, which is the cheapest machine to carry this feature and I like being able to accommodate my tall 16 oz coffee mug (many makers cannot accommodate this because it lacks height adjustment); grind adjustment (though manual says only adjust grind while it’s in use and it takes two drinks before changes will be made); there are 3 coffee strength settings; and through a trick, you can increase the heat of the coffee, if you want it a little warmer. It is easy to clean, reservoir was big enough both for water and milk, the cup warmer merely conducts heat produced from the machine so does not appreciably warm cups, but it is okay.

    What it doesn’t do:

    When I purchased this maker, I loved all of the controls it stated it gives the user; and they are the ones listed above, but I have realized there are many controls that are out of my hands.

    1. Temperature – as I stated, if you want the coffee to be warmer than normal brew temperature, the manual states you can do a hot water flush, the effect of which will raise the coffee temperature; and it does, and for me it raises the coffee temperature enough to make it acceptable, but it does add 20 seconds to brew time. There is no user temperature control for the milk and I find the temperature of cappuccino and machiatto to be acceptable when the coffee is added, but if you are steaming milk on its own (like for hot chocolate), it is not warm enough. Given there are other machines that allow you to set the temperature to your own preference, this is definitely a compromise that we have made with this machine.

    2. Frother – There are no user controls for the froth. On the plus side, the frothing is good, and certainly acceptable for our needs, but I would like to have more controls, as other models and and brands do have this feature. It says skim milk produces the best froth, and we have tried skim, 2% and Whole milk and found the whole milk actually worked best for us. I’m not sure if this will become a more significant issue throughout the year. We get grassfed milk through a local dairy farm, and because the cows eat different types of grass throughout the year, the fat content changes; so I’m not sure if this will become more of an issue when we get into fattier milk in the summer.

    3. Hot chocolate. Somewhere I read that you can make hot chocolate with this machine, and you can, but there are 2 issues. The first, as I stated before is that the temperature is not quite where I’d want it, so I’ll either need to heat the milk slightly before steaming, or after it has been frothed to get it where…
