Great machine


Looking forward to mine arriving! Only drink soya milk so been a nightmare up until now so hopefully after this I can have a nice soya latte
How easy is it to clean? I only have 1-2 coffees a day. The thing that always puts me off is the amount of time it takes to clean after each use.

I use mine about the same amount of times as you and just clean it when it says to, usually every three days
This might be a silly question but, what happens to the coffee beans after they have been used? Do you empty them out after every use?

Totally new to this kind of machine but very tempted.

Also is it easy to use soya milk with these machines?

Any advice would be appreciated, thank you

The coffee beans are ground into a powder (with every use) and compressed into circular pucks/cakes which are ejected into a collection bin. Just empty the bin when full (after approximately 10 pucks/cakes).

You can use the steam wand in this model to heat soya milk for your drinks, although due to the nature of soya milk, you probably won't end up with much foam.

I use mine only at the weekend, with easily 10 coffees before it tells me it's full and requires emptying. However, I just take out the part that contains the grounded coffee beans and then shake it to give extra space for the additional grind - before removing and emptying. Don't leave the ground beans in the machine as it will (relatively) quickly go mouldy.

It is, somewhat of a pain to clean as the small particles of coffee grind that don't go into the collector go over the surrounding surfaces when it's removed for cleaning - not too much of an issue to clean though as the majority go into the collector. I then throw the ground beans in the relevant recycling bin, but from memory they are beneficial to be used as a fertilizer on the garden. You will need to descale the machine every so often and I do it approximately every 6 months.

Overall, this is the ONE kitchen gadget that changed my life - for the minor negatives, it's brilliant and don't hesitate to get one!
Is the RRP on this normal can’t see it on any other sites

found it. Tempting but not sure how good of an offer this is. Anyone can give advice

I don’t think soya milk froths properly but the wand will still heat it up anyway.

How come the costa ones froth when I get one in there? Do there have a better frother or something (only starting my coffee journey)
Ok. I bought

I was on the look out, I was trying to wait a bit longer. But I give up. My tassimo machine tastes awful lately, I think its dead. I was trying to use the pods up before I took the plunge.

I bought my mother the 44.660 at xmas from a black Friday deal, from drinking that. It made my tassimo taste like cat pi$$.
Recommended.
Looks like a good deal. Very tempting

I’d do some reading online and then tests st home yourself. Whole fat tends to froth best. Semi and skimmed are not great. Soya was a flop when I tried it. May be it’s me lol. Generally online they tell you that soya doesn’t work well. I think it’s to do with fat content in milk that’s helps get a better result. Not sure what Costa use but it won’t be Delonghi consumer stuff!

Not a bad page to get you started:

Just my opinion guys, definitely get a model with a milk carafe as it will automatically froth the milk for you. You press a button and in 45 seconds a lovely latte or cappuccino is there waiting for you. You’ll know I’m right a month or two after buying a model like this
I've been looking for a new coffee machine to replace my ancient Delonghi Eco 310. It seems that consumer grade espresso pumps are a thing of the past and unless you want a Phillips-in-disguise Gaggia Classic your only option is to go second hand (which I'm not too hot on the idea) or bean to cup. My experience with bean to cup machines has been pretty dire in the past. In commercial settings usually. Watery bland coffee similar to every single pod machine I've tried (seriously, who is happy with these machines, the coffee they produce is abysmal). What makes this machine better. If it's only convenience then I'm not interested. I've been making coffee manually with my delonghi for close to 8 years, I enjoy the process. I'd take better tasting coffee over convenience any day of the week.
Lucky for me hate coffee prices seems rediculous to me for a machine which in a way makes a something which u can make in a pan. Although there must be some differnce if people are willing pay so much for it

On a serious note, all of these DeLonghis are the same on the inside. The only differences between models at the lower end are cosmetic. The higher-end models do automated milk frothing, but again they're the same on the inside. I've got the 4200 myself, and it's a brilliant machine. This one will be much the same, but a bit prettier and the steam wand is supposed to have some sort of funky adjustment for inept people (it's not automated).

They are very similar. My understanding with most of the Delonghi B2C machines is that they use the same tech inside but outside they can look a bit different. I've had my machine for 4 years, it's dispensed around 7k coffees and it's still working like when I first got it. With some decent fresh beans, these machines make a great espresso which is the basis of pretty much every coffee. I don't like the steam wand myself so I microwave the milk and use one of these instead = milk frother.

You must be thinking of something else entire;y, there is no way you can make espresso in a pan!
Ugh most expensive coffee is from animal poops

Ok that must be something else like this

Tempting. Happy with an old gaggia classic but an incorporated grinder and a reservoir for used coffee is an advantage. Voted hot
sold out
Looks like it’s sold out. I hope it helped some people and remember the THANKS10 works on other machines too.
*UPDATE* Back in Stock!

By "clean" you mean empty the waste bin, right? You're supposed to clean the brew mechanism weekly (or maybe it's monthly) but I only do mine very occasionally and it doesn't seem to suffer. We drink a lot of coffee.

Then there's descaling, which we probably do about every 3 or 4 months (a light comes on when it's due).

Exactly like I said.... something else, it's certainly not espresso!
Ordered Thanks... was paying a lot on nespresso pods...
I purchased the equivalent model to this from Lakeland last month at almost £50 more than this. (Now discontinued). I have previously had a Delonghi with the auto milk container. The milk container always smelt stale. The coffee from this machine comes out piping hot and not luke warm such as the milk carefe versions. I love the manual side of the milk frothing and I can totally recommend this machine. It looks very classy too in the total black finish.

My previous model was a Delonghi with milk carafe. In spite of constantly washing the carafe it always smelt of stale milk. The coffee was never piping hot as the milk was only luke-warm. I have the Lakeland version of this model, and the coffee is piping hot as the milk can be brought practically to the boil. Just my opinion, but good that you are pleased with yours.

It's one of the biggest problems with these machines, especially for people who don't use the machines everyday. It's far too easy for the grinds to go mouldy, spores of which will get released into the air each time new waste hits the old.

Then again, at least with this machine the waste container is smaller than other machines I've owned, so will be emptied more often.

I just clean out the coffee tray and spillage tray once a week. In-between just empty the used coffee in a container and put it in your green bin or garden and put the residual water down the sink when it gets full. Just a quick wipe over after each use. Its no big job.
Got the model up when doing their January offer. If is anywhere near as good would recommend.

I was going to get a ESAM 4200 for £219 on Amazon but this one has a few more features, is smaller and looks better IMO. Has single tank "rapid boil" as one of the main extra features (basically heats up and cools down much quicker). I've been in the game for a bean to cup since I took my Gaggia apart. No more messing around to make a decent coffee. I have been doing comparisons between a number of machines for around this price for about 48 hours so thanks OP no more OCD. I'm free!
