Yes, but it's double the price. I have the esam 4200 and it's been so reliable, and for me it makes good coffee.

...and you need to spend £200+ on a grinder.

You don't have to buy their grinder, sure you could find a cheaper one.

Their model numbering can be a bit misleading. Often they are the same with a few cosmetic differences. Or even the exact same machine, but an exclusive for a large retailer (assume so they can avoid price matching).

I would suggest a quick google of the two model numbers and check the inside as well if you can find some pictures.

I've had an ESAM 3500 (I think), which was manual control buttons and now have an ECAM 23.420. If its just you using the machine, the LCD panel of the ECAM doesnt offer to much benefit. On the other hand if other people in the house will be using it (or you'll often be making coffee for guests) the LCD panel/controls make life a little easier.

The one area I definitely found the ECAM better was for cleaning. The older ESAM's had lots of nooks where the collection bucket is housed. It meant it was a pain to clean as invariably errant granules of coffee don't make it into the bucket. The ECAMS are much better in this regard and also come with a filter, which is handy for me as I live in a hard water area (I suspect this may have caused the failure of my ESAM, fortunately John Lewis refunded me even after a few years of usage). The filters aren't cheap mind you but even with that and the descaler its still cheaper then sachets or the local coffee shop

Also the ESAM version I used to have, took a while to change temp before I could switch to making foam. Despite it supposedly having two boilers to prevent this. The ECAM doest have this issue. Again some of this might have been changed on the newer ESAM machines (I don't understand what ESAM/ECAM denotes in their model nomelecture).

In terms of performance, both make decent Espresso shots (crema, good temp, taste, don't burn the beans, etc). Across the two machines, its approaching 8 years of a couple of cups daily and i'd happily buy another on the strength of the coffee produced. My only complaint is the milk frother, its adequate but not quite coffee shop micro foam I understand this is a common issue with home machines, as very few if any can achieve this feat.

Costco do a Kg of the Lavaza Beans for about £8 if you're a member. I find those a good backup (as I go through quite a few beens).

But the best is to find a local supplier of good beans.

Harrods is a good place to try some different beans and find what you like. Expensive, but they have a good selection and tend to be reasonably fresh. So just grab several varieties in small quantities. Then once you've narrowed down to what you like find another cheaper supplier.

I was a bit late finishing work the other night, so had to go to Asda this week

On a serious note, picked one up from Argos tonight, £184.99 but with £10 voucher offer (very useable this time of year) made the price the same really, and I've already tasted the goodness, no waiting for pesky delivery men.

Cheers OP.

£389.99 now

I jumped on the £159 flubit offer

Excellent deal :). Been thinking about one of these for a while but always felt it was just a bit too expensive. At this proce though it would be rude not to buy one.

Ordered - Early xmas present

On subject of coffee beans I use cheapest Tesco beans 250 gm bags. Better and cheaper per kilo than their kilo bags of expresso £9.99, and better than lavazza. Dark rich beans. Returned to using these cheap beans tonight and guests commented on incredible quality of them.

Anybody have an opinion re whether it would be worth upgrading to the ESAM4200 for £229...

I have this machine and can honestly say it's excellent and can't see it being beaten on taste

That's filter coffee machine, there's a reason you don't see them in coffee shops.

It's all down to personal taste, we've tried all the different beans in the supermarket with our delonghi but keep coming back to these. http://www.waitrose.com/shop/DisplayProductFlyout?productId=7981

Beans: Avoid the big company beans as they always have to be preserved for months if not years and lose all subtlety by the time you get them- Lavazza isn't terrible as beans go but try amazon.co.uk/Rav…ans or http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rave-Coffee-Signature-Winning-Roasted/dp/B005G3T33Q/ref=sr_1_2?s=grocery&ie=UTF8&qid=1447586555&sr=1-2&keywords=rave+coffee+beans
these are roasted to order and the freshness is the difference between OK coffee and great coffee .
Also Redber amazon.co.uk/Red…ans fresh roasted and the website has a huge range of coffee and multipacks redber.co.uk/col…cks

I have this machine, was top in "Which" testing, when around £300.
Makes great coffee, depending on beans. Spending a little time trying different grind sizes and strength settings, and you will be well rewarded.
Only problem I have had was, when descaling for the second time, the machine would not exit from the cycle, despite many attempts and advice over the phone from De'Longhi.
De'Longhi arranged to collect the machine, and deliver it back.
Not had the descale light come yet, since returned to me, hopefully it will work correctly when the time comes.

small batch coffee beans are the best I've tasted

How loud is it? Would it wake the rest of the family up making coffee at 5 AM ?

It is quite noisy but you wouldnt hear it on another floor of the house.

you can try 1 bag for £1 from pactcoffee (using my personal ''marek-ftj4fa'' code). I found them here on HUKD a year ago and I'm still a customer
