I make mine as a strong espresso shot (or two) and top up with very hot water. I find I get a better taste this way as well.

Supermod

Cracking price, cheers @me_lee. Same as you i've got the 4200 and could not fault it one bit.

Got one last year from Argos for about this price. Awesome bit of kit. I don't use the frother though.

On the esam 4200 you can do this, maybe same on this model
With the machine in standby/off mode, press and hold the One cup button until the row of lights come on below. You should see the default of 2 lights is showing. Now press the two cup button repeatedly to select your desired setting out of a possible 4 settings. When set, press the 1 cup button again to save your setting, and the machine will go back to off

Yeah, I find I'm making 3 shot espresso for the ideal mix but I'm sure the doctor would disagree

Put the kettle on before you start and heat the cup with boiled water before you run the esproesso into it!

I have a previous version of this, so don't know if it'll work on yours, but I just give it a shot of hot water from the frother wand, without setting the steam setting. That tip was in my instruction book.

So we had this at work...I used the espresso setting so it was quick, then added hot water from a zip tap...wish I had this super handy set up at home lol
Edit. Voted hot, it wasn't quite this model, maybe one or two up from here, but our office one got hammered daily and rarely broke down

Yes - my office machine (a 4200 which is basically the same machine as this - the numbering convention makes no sense...) has been in for a year. It gets absolutely hammered and has probably seen several years of equivalent home use. Loads of the staff use it and it simply hasn't missed a beat.

If it did ever break down I would get it repaired and if it couldn't be repaired I would definitely be buying another one.
If you do a bit of Googling Delonghi have a fantastic reputation for coffee machines. I would recommend them to anyone.

Bought this last week fantastic with beans, you don’t need to add hot water tho just turn the dial to make a larger cup job done, prob get 25 cups from a £2.50 bag of beans so saves money in long run

I've had the 4200 for almost 10 years now pulling 4 double espressos daily, cracking machine, best bean fo cup machine ever.

I wonder if DeLonghi intended to make the ever lasting coffee machine......?! I would of quite happily brought another one after 5 years if it had broke.

This is THE major drawback with this machine. The stainless steel top does NOT HEAT up any cups placed upon it and is for design purposes only.
This machine is only good for lattes and cold coffee IMHO.

Yeah, but it's a PITA and even then doesn't result in a hot shot.

Was thinking of getting one of these but this thread has put me right off warm and have to put the kettle on for £200

I have this machine and its excellent. I pop a bit of milk in the bottom of the cup first, blast in the micro for 20sec then use the machine with a double shot. Nice and hot and quicker than using a milk jug.

Had any problems with coffee grounds being spilled inside the machine? Mine's 5 years old and has started doing this. Not a huge problem, but a bit annoying.

Kettle on or microwave to finish your coffee from 200£ machine.... cold obviously

Cheers mate, I'll try it tomorrow or I won't get any sleep!!

I don't comment often, but I want to say this is rubbish.
Water is never hot enough
Too fiddly, requires alot of cleaning and maintenance.

I dumped it in the bin last month. yes, even at that price

oos and crap boiler/heating element.

Just made a double espresso - piping hot...

I know this has just been expired but these are in and out of stock constantly.

If you still want one just sign up for a stock alert.

Back in stock, just checked.

I buy and sell used coffee makers including stove top, pod machines and bean to cup and always use them first to make sure they work and even bought myself my own Delonghi bean to cup which I sold in the end as no matter what I try I always go back to Nescafe Alta Rica as its consistent, tastes like coffee should taste like and I dont have to heat my cups or warm it up in the microwave plus it doesnt cost me a few hundred pounds for the machine to be stuck in the corner taking up valuable work top space as a simple kettle does the trick but thats my opinion on having a decent coffee, some people dont like instant and some dont like the messing about of bean to cup hence pods. Each to their own I guess.

well I have had mine for a year. Dont recognise the cold coffee problem but of course you need to heat the milk to get a good temperature. I never use the steamer though. Produces good coffee. Only gripes is you are always having to either empty the grounds, fill the water, fill the coffee etc on a daily basis. great machine imo for the price

We use ours every day. It's brilliant! I always froth

Out of stock, was hoping to purchase one.

Yeah, but it's a PITA and even then doesn't result in a hot shot.


Absolute rubbish, if you set it to 4 instead of the 2 it comes out of the box on it'll produce a double shot at exactly the temp it's supposed to be. You're probably used to overheated coffee!

The steamer is very good IF you pull the paranello wand off and then surf the top to build volume and then plunge it deep to bring it up to temperature.

Two essential buys to go alongside one of these, milk thermometer and double walled glasses, this set is perfect and been a bargain price for years...

Big glasses for long coffees and the little ones hold exactly a double shot, keeps your drink hot for ages.

Changing the water temperature can have a dramatic affect on the taste of your coffee. I just changed my 4200 from 2 to 3 and the resulting coffee is significantly more bitter (I use quite expensive Illy beans). I've read about boiling water 'burning' coffee before and dismissed it, but there was definitely an effect on my machine (i'm not enjoying this cup at all!)
