In the last ten years coffee has exploded into a massive trend that is exploited by chain stores charging you extortionate prices for a small cup. I decided to cut out the middle man and invest in a machine that delivers high quality coffee for a fraction of the price, I went on the look out for the Best Espresso Machine. The machine features all of the fancy gadgets that the huge shop machines have all contained within one unit.
My previous experience of coffee machines have lacked the technical superiority of a machine like this. The factors of the perfect coffee house cup was never delivered and we would still purchase the majority of our coffee elsewhere. The lack of control of the previous machine made us move forward. As far as coffee machines go I have been recommended De’longhi Expresso Coffee Machine numerous times and had used one at a friends and was very impressed by its sleek design and ultra fast delivery of a spot on coffee.
Personally I am a fan of roasting high quality beans ready for drinking. A great feature here is that the machine offers numerous grades of how fine or coarse you wish to drink to grind your beans. The strength of the coffee is also an imperative feature so I looked into the more complex functions and began to learn how to tailor the coffee each time to my desired strength and creaminess. As a consumer I never knew the complexities of the creation of a perfect cup of coffee the dynamics are quite vast, the ratios of water, coffee, temperature and how the froth is made, this really is a science within itself! When we have ran out of beans it is very easy to convert the machine to using grounds and it functions straight away no hassles and complications it just works.
Compact and High Performance: Because DeLonghi’s One Cup Coffee Maker new patented boiler is so compact, the excellent heat distribution guarantees a perfect espresso at the ideal temperature every time.
Timeless Reliability: Thanks to the stainless-steel removable double boiler, the inside can be cleaned easily. Regular cleaning of the machine is essential for maintaining the best flavor possible and for minimizing the need for service.
A Perfect Aroma, Guaranteed: The beans-to-brew system guarantees an espresso with a delicious aroma as the coffee is freshly ground. No traces of stale grounds are left in the machine.
Instant Reheat: This special function heats the core of Magnifica, ensuring the machine is always at the ideal temperature for espresso, no matter how long the interval between cups.
Removable Water Tank and Bean Container: Magnifica knows that the counter space in your kitchen is always at a premium. Magnifica is the only super-automatic machine that allows you to fill the water tank and empty the coffee grounds without moving the machine. All of the controls are at the front of the machine, from the on/off switch to the cappuccino system.
Integrated Burr Grinder: A space-saver container for beans is fully integrated into the DeLonghi Best Espresso Machine. You can set the grinding level to customize your espresso. Magnifica can also be used with ground coffee. DeLonghi recommends the use of illycaffe for the best tasting espresso. Rich, smooth, balanced, and never bitter, illy provides the same consistent distinctive taste cup after cup.

Front Panel: Magnifica allows you to customize your coffee by adjusting the quantity of water and coffee to suit your taste: long or short, weak or strong.
Practicality and ease of use
I am always dubious when any company makes statements of instant use and from coffee bean to cup in seconds but for once I was pleasantly surprised and delivered a fresh cup within the time it takes to pour more or less. Time can always be a concern as the wife and I work full time so a cup of quality, high strength coffee gives the mind that needed boost in the morning times. Another pleasant feature in the colder months is that the appliance warms your cup prior to drinking and in turn keeps your drink at optimal temperature for a longer time. The Magnifica Delonghi Espresso is easy to use and with time you can customize your preferential coffee by playing around with the settings.
