De'Longhi Magnifica EAM3500 Coffee Machine

 

quality of espresso, coffee and cappuccino, easy to take apart and assemble, clear instructions on screen, ever so easy to clean, most functions are genuinely intuitive

temperature of hot water not high enough for tea or cup soups; there could be memory functions for different users

De'Longhi Magnifica EAM3500 Coffee Machine

 

It really is easy to clean and makes a cappuccino precisely to my (very demanding) spec.

Takes up quite a bit of space on the work surface but no more than other machines.

De'Longhi Magnifica EAM3500 Coffee Machine

 

Very quick and easy to make a good quality cappuccino with minimum effort due to clever design - espressos are even easier. Easy to change the 'qualities' of the finished drinks with minimum effort (i.e. quantity and strength). Easy to clean and maintain.

The water reservoir and the bean store could both be a bit larger and thus require less frequent filling - but this is a quibble rather than a criticism.

The machine is average

 

The taste of the coffee was good. However, the volume of the coffee extraction is not consistent as some glasses might have more than the other. Coffee I'd not particularly hot as expected. The stream wand don't move 360 and froth consistency is not...

Good Features But Poor Coffee.

 

as far as I am concerned. The good points - a. It makes nice frothy cappuccinos very quickly, and b. Most Australians prefer weak coffee and think those cappucinos are good or great, and c. If you have a lot of people over, it is great for quickly...

Good for when there are a lot of guests wanting cappuccinos.

Coffee is very sub-average.
