Bought an ecam22.360 the other day. Far better than this POS....


I'd hope so at £500

If you imagine a clock face on the dials, set the cup size to just below 9 o clock. This will give the correct size for an espresso. (You may need to tweak slightly. I fired off several double shots and measured until it came out at 60ml.)

I set the strength to just after 3 o clock, and the grind I set to number 3.

Normally I use Lavazza Super Crema beans.

Hope this helps.

I have this one, this is a great deal
The buttons look just the same as the £179 ESAM2800 I bought last week. What's better about this, apart from the aesthetics?

Exactly that. Aesthetically different.
Fantastic machine. Had mine 2.5 years and use it non stop.
Bought this on Black Friday from Amazon (£199.99)... Fantastic machine!
Bought mine many years ago now and still going strong. Only thing that bugs me is it's quite noisy in operation but you can't fault the coffee it produces!

How long did you own an Esam 4200 for?

If not, your comment is a waste of space and holds no value.
i also have this machine, still going strong after 3 years! It makes great coffee. Good price
Great little machine. Heat added

I've had one for 3 yrs, it's given me no trouble whatsoever. Great coffee and it paid for itself (given what I would have spend on pods) AGES ago.

I just Googled the other model mentoned. It can be had for £315 (350 less 10%) for Currys which looks like a good price given its RRP.

I have this machine for 2 years. Use it every day. It is not a POS! It’s FQ!
I paid £250 for mine...stand by what I said.
Why the black model of this rarely drops below £300 I don't know

Thank you, I’ll be trying these settings tomorrow morning!
The argos deal from the other day is now the same price as this. Would this be a better deal

The other setting I changed on my older model ESAM was to crank up the heat level to max.

I also keep an empty cup in place to catch the warm up fluid and the shut down fluid, to avoid cleaning the drip-tray. This cup is periodically emptied into a pot plant (which has perked it up no end).
Good Price for a top class machine in this price range. I have owned mine for 18 months and use it every day. Best everyday beans IMO - Starbucks cost between £2.50 and £3.50 with a free Latte on every pack to use in Starbucks.
The "mellow beans" pack at Aldi are very good, imhe, at £1.49 a pack.

Interesting. Will set up accordingly. I use the same beans which are a tenner delivered from amazon. Thanks for tips.
If we ever get our kitchen finished (Wren are a joke frankly) I'd love to get one of these. I've got all sorts of coffee making solutions but never bought a bean to cup
Got a delonghi bean to cup a month ago, fantastic bit of kit, proving very popular, has already made 150 coffees according to the counter :-O
Great deal! For those of you using supermarket beans I would suggest trying out freshly roasted beans which can be had for around £12-14 from Amazon or directly from the roaster. You wont go back!

I Used to buy "rave" fresh beans from Amazon but found they could only be bought in 1kg packs. Which usually would last me about 3 weeks , by that time they've lost their freshness even tho stored in a air tight container in the fridge.

Are there any decent beans that can be bought for a reasonable price in smaller size packs ?

Even 3 week old beans are a lot fresher than anything found on a supermarket shelf. If you order from rave direct rather than amazon prime they roast on the day they send out which should prolong the freshness. I think the code WELCOMERAVER takes 25% for new accounts. Try the Chatsworth Blend we really like it.

It's not just his comment that's a waste of space.... another HUKD helmet
If anyone wants to try a good bean: Pelican Rouge Blend 1863. Usually under £10 for 1 kg on Amazon.

I prefer it to Lavazza and Rave Signature blend.

Try Revelation from Union Roasted Coffee Co here unionroasted.com/rev…tml Free postage this weekend £5.25 a pack. Roasted a couple of days after you order so really fresh. Can be bought off the shelf in Waitrose but beans not so fresh.

Can someone recommend a double walled cappuccino cup that will fit this machine with a capacity of 250ml+?
I also have this machine (abt 5 months). I switched from a Tassimo after they changed the milk formulation for the Lattes, and tbh am really glad I did. We also use the Lavazza Crema, which gives a lovely cup of coffee. My only observation (slight grumble) is that you really have to do a cleaning cycle on it before you make the first cup of coffee if it's been standing for a while as the pipes cool down quickly and the resulting coffee doesn't come out quite hot enough imho (although tbf I like my coffee very hot to start with). I know I can warm the milk with the steamer, but if I'm honest I rarely bother as I'm always in a rush. All of that said, it is a cracking little machine for the price, and anyone who buys it at this price won't be disappointed.

Try hot and wet, all these coffee snobs coming out of the woodwork when we get a coffee machine on HUKD's, worse than the wine buffoons. Oh I prefer the Lavazzooo 1836 myself.
