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

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.

Good Machine when it works!


ooking at a possible $500 for repairs is not attractive, a new model DeLonghi Magnifica costs $699 but is it as good? We may just go for a cheaper option as its quite a bit of money. At the moment we are using an $80 ALDI machine with capsules and its...

Excellent of ease, wanting on quality


s very good and makes using and storing considerably convenient. As far as the coffee is concerned there is little to say. Unfortunately while it does grind and filter the whole bean quite well, and I have used a variety of beans that it manages to...

Excellent of ease, wanting on quality


We have had this machine for just on a year now. It makes approximately 3-5 coffees per day. The build of the machine is entirely plastic, so it does feel and look very cheap. It is not too intricate in the design so it is easy enough to keep clean and...

The Way To Go If You Live in Brisbane


The machine has been in for maintenance and repairs a couple of times, but completely covered by the warranty and will be covered by the extended warranty in future. The convenience and quality of the fresh coffee bean coffee every day is well worth...

Biggest piece of rubbish


Had this coffee machine for 12 months and 4 days when the milk refused to draw up any more. Prior to this the only warm coffee control was latte and even then the froth was half a cup. All the other controls resulted in cold coffee. We packaged it as...

Bad service, cold coffee, no control to heat milk more.
