Found 9th Feb
I can never fault a De'Longhi machine! Got one last year and would never change.
Always looking out for good offers on a strong machine.

Found this on for £269.99 but use code CS15 for the extra £15 off. Next best that I could find was £349 at HoF.

Heat because it reminds me of Darth Vader
This has actually been posted direct from delonghi. Using the code it's £242.99 delivered. I had mine delivered last week and am actually making a coffee with it now. Lol. Code is THANKS10 if it still works. It did last week
Hmmm, slightly different model numbers but they appear to be the same unless anyone else can see otherwise?

I see what you mean. I'm sure there was a white De_Longhi coffee machine posted on here that looked like R2-D2. This one reminded me or Vaders chest.

I know this is a ridiculous question, and almost impossible to quantify, but what would you say the average cost-per-cup is using whole beans? I'd love a bean-to-cup machine, but I do like the convenience of my Tassimo. I'm just wondering if there's a cost-saving per cup so I can justify buying it to myself

I was sad enough to look into this before.

Refill nespresso pods cost 25p each (I use starbucks pods which are good)

Bean to cup is approximately 8p per coffee

1,000 cups of coffee therefore £80 vs £250

Factor in machine costs and youll be making a savings on coffee after 1,200-1,500 cups
I got one of these a few days ago on the delonghi deal (all black). Great machine. Highly recommended

Just on the convenience point. I think the bean to cup is the same if not more convenient. Beans go in every few days. Turn it on, press the button, coffee comes out. I guess actually it's pretty much the same. Rather than taking the pods in and out. You put in beans and take out grinds (it holds 13 pucks).
Really good machine with self-clean function. Takes beans or ground coffee. If you or someone else in your house likes coffee, you will not regret buying this. Please note it is very loud so not for everyone, especially if you share a small studio/flat.

Ha, that's ace, thanks! I reckon I'm paying nearer 20p a cup with Tassimo at the moment (I moved to Spain but still order them from UK). Right, I need to look into this I think

I have both machines, the quality of the coffee from the bean to cup (with decent beans) is far superior to the Tassimo

Yeah, I always appreciate a proper coffee. I think the Tassimo is way ahead of granules, but still short of the real deal. The price of the machines has always put me off (well, the price of a decent one), but when you do the maths it looks like it's better in the long run, and you're getting a proper coffee to boot.

I think AO are still doing the ESAM 2600/2800 bean to coffee de longhi machines for around£179 with free delivery - sorry I’ve not got the link but it was posted on HUKD a few days ago & it’s the top-rated machine on WHICH ! It’s a great machine, I’ve got 1.
Delonghi are quality machines. I've had one(can't remember which model) for years. It's like one you see in a coffee shop with the handle filter that you put your coffee in and a marinello steam pipe..... I've even got your a steel jug with thermometer.... All for the perfect cup of coffee

Agreed. I bought a bean-to-cup machine in the summer last year and put my Gaggia Classic into semi-permanent retirement. The DeLonghi is an outstanding machine.
I've had several nescafe dulce gusto machines which have always ended up dead as a result of scale buildup (I live in a hard water area). Once they get clogged it's nearly impossible to fix as there's no way to get the descaling solution through them. Would love one of these but just worried it might suffer the same fate.
Great machine, picked up an ESAM4000 a few years ago for £104 and been working daily without skipping a beat! Thanks to HUKD - hotukdeals.com/dea…285
To add to the comments about the price comparisons, I usually have a double coffee from a bean to cup machine, but who prepares two capsules for their coffee? and then the prices stack up twice as fast.
Does anyone know if de'longhli do a bean to cup whereby you can hold normal and decaf beans? The wife is on decaf. Thanks

Not sure but I’ve often thought that would be handy too. You can get round it as they’ve got a slot to put preground coffee in, although you miss the benefit of freshly ground beans (unless you buy a separate burr grinder)
I compromise by mixing normal and decaf beans together.
If the delonghi offer is still on it’s cheaper direct from Delonghi.com with THANKS10 really glad I went for it in the end after using a manual espresso machine for a long time. So glad I did. Less mess, quicker to make several coffees at a time and the coffee is just as good as the manual machine. The only draw back is that water reservoir is pretty small. Especially considering it needs to clean itself at start up and shut down so don’t put it somewhere that makes it difficult to get the reservoir out (it can’t be pulled out directly from the front your need to pull it from the right hand side). Other than that. Great machine.

different machine. I got the one from delonghi, its the ECAM 23.120.B (fantastic machine, thoroughly enjoying it, albeit I might be twitching a fair amount from my blood being 10% coffee) , this is the ECAM 23.123B

I couldn't work it out, I tried googling but didn't get very far and I gave up. I like mine and would recommend is all I can say. Im sure the other is as good!

I couldn't figure it out either. I don't think it's any major revision, might even be a third party vendor SKU for tracking in that the one from delonghi is 120 and everyone else is 123. The machine is identical otherwise.
Delonghi make great machines, I have owed 2, either end of the price range and all I would say is the price difference just adds electronic displays and pre set Latte etc, some even come with Auto Cremas, the inners are pretty much the same across the range. If it's your first machine I would go for the 2600, 2800 or 4200 they range from around £170 to £230. Do everything you need and make fantastic coffee, far far better than any Dolce Gusto or Nespresso. Depending on the Beans you purchase it costs approx 10p per cup for a single espresso shot, 12-15p with milk. Buy one you won't regret, just think coffee shop and more.

I must recommend lavazza rossa beans. It makes a beautiful cup of coffee in these machines. Costco sell 2kg for £15, its definitely worth it

I'm currently using the Costco 'Starbucks custom roasted' Kirkland Signature House Blend. Very nice espresso. Smooth but rich with a nice caramel flavour.
I think the main difference between the de Longhi machines is the colour - one is black with some chrome bits on it & the other is mainly chrome/ stainless steel. I think that the inside of the machines is the same on both, & they both produce great coffee

I'm doing the same as you but only just ordered the machine so not got it yet. Classic became too much effort but I had a great affair with it whilst it lasted. Great to hear you rate it being a Gaggia man.

Yeah the Classic was a bottomless money pit. Always something needed repaired or replaced. The last straw was when the steam valve went, because descaling doesn't clean the valve, so it needs replaced every couple of years at almost £40. Plus labour if you don't have the knowledge or skill to replace it yourself. And £35 for the plastic knob for the steam valve on its own?

Plus the mess making coffee. Needing a grinder or using fine ground. Heating it up to get going. The time to make a couple of coffees. Walking away in the middle of flow and running back to the machine with coffee everywhere! £35 for plastic that is robbery! A guy bought mine on EBay and got it working again but I'm glad I let it go. Can't wait to just press a button. This model only takes 10 seconds to heat up as it has what they call rapid steam. I've already got over the fact that it is a cop out. I went for Gaggia looks mainly and then became very good at doing the job but started to get carried away with the details

The grinding and cleaning up afterwards didn't annoy me in the slightest. Nor did descaling and back flushing. But when trying to make coffee for more than 2 people, it was taking upwards of half an hour. With this you can have it done and dusted in 10 minutes. Enjoy.
