According to the tealeafjournal tea water temperatures should be about:

  • White teas: 160–185°F (71–85°C)
  • Yellow teas: 175°F (79°C)
  • Green teas: 140–190°F (60–88°C)

I have this coffee machine bought for £360 1 year ago so this is good price. Hamper looks good too.

The water is at the back of the machine. It is more slimline than others such as eletta. The spout does not move so I cannot put long flasks underneath to carry my coffee. There is no heat cup area. Other than that it still looks good after a good clean and coffee is still amazing

That's a shame. I got old cappuccino rapid and i can just fit a small contigo cup under so i dont have to hold it while coffee is made

Have to agree... So much more convenient and if this machine rinses as regularly as the eletta, you'll be topping up the water often!

Mind you the eletta is £150 more currently.

Heated the deal.
End result not warm enough. Cold for me. Returned mine

The coffee should not be really hot, as it actually burns the coffee. It’s just we have all got so use to drinking a hot drink to the brink of scolding our mouths. With this model the milk is also heated so will be hot enough.
I have the delonghi primal Donna and have never looked back. Only real problem is you will never drink instant or pod type coffee again.
I have this and its a PITA. There is a small water container at the back which is a pain to take off particularly if the unit is placed under a kitchen cupboard. You’ll end up splashing water all over the plugs. Plus the milk spout doesn’t extend over to where the coffee comes out-if you’ve got the wrong shape cup some of the milk or coffee is going to miss the cup entirely. Plus you have to remove the milk dispenser to empty the coffee waste. Do yourself a favour and buy the machine that is slightly wider and has the water tank at the side (it’s often this sort ofprice).

I have the Delongi Magnifica and find it far better, as I can heat the milk separately and have the drink at the temperature that suits me.

Did you adjust the temperature in the settings?

With the early Delonghi fully automatic machines I also found the milk based coffee not warm enough. As a result when JL refunded me on my Magnifica (delonghi kept returning it un-repaired) I ended up getting another manual machine (ECAM 23.420).

But my inlaws have got one of Delonghi's newer fully automatic machines (same series as this). And there is a temperature setting. As a result if I was buying again i'd get a fully automatic machine.

Additionally the Magnifica is not superior from my experience. Firstly the interior design has more nooks for errant grounds to hide in. Making it a pain to clean. The ECAM's are better, although still not perfect. Secondly the boiler design on the ECAM's is better and you can switch between steam/brewing within a few seconds. The Magnifica took ~20-30 seconds switching and sometimes still wasn't upto temp fully, resulting in milk not frothing properly.

I think next time around I'm going to get the Sage Barrista. Tried it a few times at JL and the coffee is a step up from any Delonghi I've tried. (As is the price ).

Buy a Lelit or Gaggia classic instead, with a separate grinder


Ive been doing this for the last 5 or 6 years. It's cheaper and gives you more control but it's a lot of faffing about compared to this machine. I've just bought a refurbed delonghi bean to cup machine from another deal and I'm hoping for an easier life now.

The classic was good, but it needed constant cleaning, portafilter inserts replaced or deep cleaned, and gaskets replaced etc. In the end its not pouring strongly, but I've done everything I can except replace the pump following videos on the Internet. I'm not sure if that would help or not as my flow is weak but the pump noise hasn't changed or got quieter/weaker.

Also if you buy a decent grinder, then it takes a while to 'dial in' the right grind for any given bean. To begin with it was all part of the adventure timing the flow of different grinds. I did get annoying though. I'm prone to try a different beans when I can find them, and often get given gifts of small packets of beans, but the work involved in recalibration everything for each bean got soul destroying.

A fresh bean on a well calibrated grind on a well set up classic gives a lovely double shot, pop in some other beans and the same setup gives horrible brown water like diluted filter coffee.

I'm not arguing a bean to cup is better, but I'm hoping the lack of stuff to play with helps me with My zen calm, instead of getting stressed about running just one more grind, finer, but with the machine dialled so tight the burrs might get damaged.
must admit great machines but the milk attachments reportedly break a lot and the water machine is a pain in the arse to reach. i got an eletta with the tank at the side for about £300 on very a year or two ago and never looked back.

That's true. These machines are pretty great with their ease of use, I just wish they'd put a bit more effort in and use a burr instead of blade grinder.

To be honest the more expensive semi-auto machines might take a lot more maintenance to keep them happy, but they're definitely built to last several lifetimes of the cheaper Breville and Delonghi machines.
My Magnifica died after nearly 11 years use. Been trying to decide if it’s worth paying for service and repair or purchase another. The Magnifica has been great but is a bit of a tank do these compare well as it’s over £100 more or is the milk frother tank just a gimic?

So I don't own one of these but surely the milk tank is a little pointless unless you're making many cups at once. How long can you keep milk in it? Surely not very long before it'll go bad.

I can’t really comment as such on this, but the one I have the prima Donna , the milk jug is quite clever. You fill the jug with milk and keep it in the fridge. Basically the milk is drawn up and heated via the machine. You then press a button to clean the residue away at the top of the jug then put it back in the fridge. (Hope that is clear)

Ahh I see. That is quite cool (literally).
Good luck getting the freebies, I bought this last November and it was supposed to come with £140 of gifts. I’ve complained by email multiple times with no response and got them on the phone twice and still nothing.

The the machine itself is really good, the size of the water tank is a bit of a pain a small it needs regular refilling but it’s nice and slim which is what I needed. There is a cup heater on the top although I don’t bother using it, the milk carafe is stored in the fridge and connected when used, the temperature can be adjusted but some may find the hottest setting is not enough but the drinks are ready to drink right away.

The milk milk spout is a bit annoying as it only has a tiny bit of movement and the preset coffees in the milk menu are too milky so I tend to dispense a coffee then use the milk option to add as much as I like. You can set up custom coffees too but I haven’t yet.
We have Delonghi 23.460 for 3 years and just after year and a half started to get an error ‘Insert Assembly Infuser’. Goes on and off but sometimes we can’t make any coffee. Repair might cost around £200
Has anybody had this problem with their Delonghi? Not sure whether to buy a new one, repair this one or just get another brand all together

Unfortunately not. I have the older model with actual buttons not touch screen but this one looks great. The noise from the grinder is never going to be quiet but mines not bad.
The milk jug looks very similar, I would say go for it.

My old Delonghi broke last week and have had no joy finding someone local to repair and a collect/delivery type will likely cost best part of £100 or even more.

I've wanted one of these for a while and was prepared to buy at whatever the price was so happily surprised to see it at it's lowest. I drink flat whites regularly so this is perfect, no longer will I need to schedule 10/15 mins to make one on a morning - I can set this machine to wake up and be ready to use and press a couple of buttons instead. Perfect,

EDIT - Oh, the disappointment. It came yesterday and it I'm arranging a return for full refund today. The coffee is tasteless and watery despite being on extra strong taste and the grinder on the right settings, this could be made better with a darker roast bean but the main issue is the milk temperature which is completely unacceptable. It is just warm enough to drink the second it comes out, any longer and it is luke warm at best. Completely disappointed, I had really high hopes. Now looking into repair of my old machine again or if I can't do that, the better rated Delonghi 4200 with manual frother.

People comment how you can improve the temp of the drink by warming the cup up first using the water it cleans with but that's dirty water. Now I've looked there are loads of comments about it. Bought the less aesthetically pleasing but more functional ESAM4200

Thank you! Shall try it. Haven’t come across this page before
My hamper arrived today so wanted to say a big thanks to @Orbdemon for making me aware. My purchase was slightly outside the days too but they didn't seem to mind

Also on what you've said @jimpom23 about the temperature. I found the same with mine. Before I was leaving just enough milk for a cappuccino in the fridge in the carafe which was getting pretty cold and I give my cups a quick blast in the microwave to warm them through thoroughly and it definitely keeps the drink warm enough to enjoy it without needing to gulp it down.

I actually took a temperature of the finished drink and it was only a couple of degrees less than what i'd consider perfect. So not ideal but certainly not a disaster for me. I'm using a PrimaDonna S Evo ECAM 510.55.M.

From what I gather, the more expensive primadonna model doesn't suffer as badly with the milk temp...
