Delonghi

Delonghi is an Italian company founded in 1902, which throughout the 20th century has expanded its activity to become one of the primary world references in the manufacture of small household appliances. It has its headquarters in Treviso (Italy) and owes much of its fame, of course, to the marketing and production of coffee machines.

It is not for nothing that Delonghi coffee machines enjoy worldwide prestige and recognition, especially in the field of espresso and automatic coffee machines (more on these later).

As well as acting as a manufacturer of coffee machines for other companies in the capsule sector, Delonghi also markets its line of coffee machines, focusing mainly on espresso machines.

Delonghi coffee machines are, together with Saeco, the most popular within the domestic espresso sector. Their main advantage is their wide range of models, from the most basic coffee machines accessible to everyone to the highest range of super-automatic espresso machines. At Delonghi, there is something for everyone.

Unlike other manufacturers, Delonghi has an extensive range of models in both manual and automatic espressos. There are dozens of options. Besides, it also markets some Moka pot types (Italian coffee machines), as we will see later. However, in both these areas, Delonghi coffee machines are always focused on making espressos.

If you would like to know more about them, I am sure you will find it useful to check all the articles and information of interest that we have published to date on our website:

We will now analyse their main common characteristics and the peculiarities of the different models:

Delonghi coffee makers: Prices and models

The price ranges of Delonghi coffee makers are very varied and logically depend on the variety of coffee makers you are interested in buying. Still, in general, we can say that Delonghi coffee makers are somewhat cheaper than Saeco coffee makers and other espresso firms such as Gaggia.

Espressos, which are the most numerous, ranging from 100-200 pounds in the case of manual coffee machines.

If we go for the automatic ones, the entry model ECAM 22.110 starts at 300 pounds, while the top of the range can easily exceed 1000 pounds in price.

There are also some drip coffee machines, which are usually basic and do not exceed 50-60 pounds in most cases.

To get you out of the way, here are the updated offers and prices (as of today) for all Delonghi machines available at Amazon:

Comparison of Delonghi coffee machines

Of course, you can’t miss our Delonghi coffee maker comparison chart so you can examine briefly all the details and differences between the Delonghi coffee makers you are most interested in buying. We are going to group them by type of coffee maker (according to the coffee brewing method) to make things more orderly.

Manual Delonghi espresso machines

And to finish, we offer you a brief extract of the leading models of Delonghi coffee machines that we have analysed on the web. You can find complete information about each of them by accessing their corresponding reviews.

Delonghi EC-145

The most basic model of Delonghi, EC-145, is for all audiences and without missing a single essential feature of any espresso machine. For a little more, you can go one step further and buy the latest model, EC-155.

Delonghi Icona Vintage

The espresso machine with the most personality and charisma from Delonghi, with a retro design, marked vintage air and several colours to choose from.

Delonghi Scultura

An updated revision of the Vintage Icona, with similar features but an even more attractive and stylish design. Ideal if you want to have a touch of pop distinction in your kitchen.

Delonghi Dedica

Without a doubt, Delonghi’s star model, a top-selling coffee maker in the mid-range segment, and surely the best option on the market for those who want to take home a “decent” coffee machine for an affordable price. The first model was the Delonghi EC-680, and today we already have the EC-685 that continues to break the mould.

Delonghi EC-820

An intermediate step between the Dedica and the top of the range of the brand, the EC-860. It is a machine of much greater size and performance than the Dedica – also more expensive, of course.

Delonghi EC-860

The EC-860 is the top of the range in the Delonghi manual espresso machines. A real wonder that has little to envy professional coffee makers.

Delonghi ECP

Delonghi’s ECP line has been very successful in the market, being slightly below the Delonghi Dedica. This is a mid-range, “traditional” coffee machine without any gimmicks and with a slightly more modest finish than the successful EC-685. Its tank is 1.1 litres, and there are already different versions on the market: ECP 31, 33, 35…

Delonghi Stilosa

Another mid-range Delonghi espresso machine, which does its job perfectly but is too similar to the others. 1-litre tank, plastic body, not very up-to-date design… in our opinion this one could have been saved. It’s good, but it doesn’t bring anything new.

This model belongs to Delonghi’s Distinta line, a range of home appliances (also includes the kettle, the toaster…) which is characterised by a quite tasteful polished stainless steel finish. It is available in several colours.

Delonghi automatic coffee machines

We are not going to stop here for long because it corresponds to the widest range and the most important business line of this Italian firm with literally dozens of models. As a curiosity, we will tell you that these are the machines to look at if you are looking for Delonghi coffee machines for coffee beans (Bean to cup coffee machines). These are the only ones that admit such a possibility. Ditto if you need a Delonghi coffee maker with a built-in grinder.

The catalogue of Delonghi automatic coffee machines is so dense that it deserves its own guide with all the details. We invite you to get to know it: Delonghi automatic coffee machines.

Italian Delonghi coffee machines: Alicia is the reference

The extensive range of Delonghi coffee machines is completed by a very popular exponent in the Italian coffee maker sector (the traditional Moka). This is the Delonghi Alicia Moka pot, a model with a capacity of 6 to 9 cups and whose main feature is that it can be connected to electric bass. In this way, it is possible to heat the water without using the stove.

If you want to know more about it we recommend you to read its analysis on our web because it is really interesting. It is a really well-known model and a great sales success in the field of Italian coffee machines.

The Delonghi hydropressure coffee machines: EC7 and EC5

Hydro Pressure coffee machines are less popular than espresso machines, but they still have their share of the market. And, of course, the Italian company can boast of having one of the best on the market in its catalogue. It is the EC7 model, an 800-watt machine with all the safety systems typical of this type of machine. It reaches a pressure of 3.5 bars.

Previous to this model is the Delonghi EC5, which is now discontinued. Its characteristics were very similar.

Delonghi drip coffee machines: less known but competitive

Delonghi filter coffee machines are much less popular than their branded “sisters”, espresso machines. Not surprisingly, both Italy and the Delonghi brand itself are closely associated with the espresso world rather than the filter coffee world.

Nevertheless, among the range of Delonghi drip coffee machines, we find several interesting models, all of them in the medium-high range. Let’s get to know them better:

Delonghi filter coffee maker ICM 15210

This is a basic and classic model of lifetime drip coffee maker, with a 1.25-litre capacity and 900 watts of power. It is only sold with a glass carafe and black plastic body.

Delonghi ICM 14011

The small version of the previous model: a machine with the same performance but only 0.6 litres and 650w of power. Includes a button to select the aroma or intensity of the coffee.

Also worth mentioning are discontinued models, such as the Delonghi ICMI, which had a steel thermal carafe.

Delonghi combi coffee machines: BCO range

Delonghi also has a successful line of combi coffee machines on the market: the Delonghi BCO. These coffee machines offer a combined espresso and filter (or drip) coffee service in one room.

The main models are the Delonghi BCO 420 (the latest and best model to date) and the Delonghi BCO 260, although there are some other intermediate models. Both have an espresso machine with 15 bars of pressure and a drip coffee maker to prepare about 10 cups at a time.

The BCO 420 incorporates many extra details, improves some of the features of the other BCO model, and also has an attractive exterior design with stainless steel finishes. There is a very similar version, but with a black plastic body, called Delonghi BCO 411.

In short, it is a good option for Delonghi to combine two types of coffee machines in a single appliance with a compact and reduced design.

Delonghi Nespresso and Delonghi Dolce Gusto coffee machines

As you know, Delonghi is also a renowned manufacturer of both Nespresso and Dolce Gusto coffee machines. It does not market them under its own brand, but only as a manufacturer. However, many users are unaware of this fact. They are confused when they speak of ‘the Dolce Gusto Delonghi coffee machine‘ or ‘Nespresso Delonghi‘ because that is what they see on the packaging, believing them to be a more advanced model.

To complicate matters further, several of these models are manufactured jointly with Krups.

And… Are there any other Delonghi capsule coffee machines?

No, the only capsule coffee machines available from Delonghi are those made for both Nespresso and Dolce Gusto, as explained above. Nothing else.

Delonghi vs Krups coffee machines

In line with the previous question, the comparison of Delonghi vs Krups coffee machines is very common among inexperienced users or those who are taking their first steps in research to decide on their purchase.

Both Krups and Delonghi share the manufacture of Nespresso and Dolce Gusto pod coffee machines, but there is no difference between them if we look at specific models. That is: you can look at the Inissia, for example, and although aesthetically the one manufactured by Krups and the one manufactured by Delonghi have some differences, in functional terms, they are identical machines. No brand is better than another in this aspect.

On the other hand, the two manufacturers also share fierce competition in the field of superautomatic coffee machines. Krups’ automatic machines are similar to Delonghi’s in the enormous variety of their offer in the mid-range. This means that in the range of approx. 300-500 pounds both brands have excellent options.

However, if we already go for the high range there, Delonghi clearly takes the lead over Krups. So, as is often the case, the decision between Delonghi vs Krups depends largely on the type of machine we are looking for.

Delonghi coffee grinders

Delonghi grinders are the perfect complement to such an extensive range of espresso machines… that they naturally feed on ground coffee. The variety is also enormous, although the offer consists only of electric grinders.

The KG49 model is the most basic option.

The KG79, KG89 and KG210 models are mid-range grinders (milling machines).

The Dedica grinder (KG520 and KG521 versions) is representative of the professional mills, only for the most demanding users.

Here you can find the review we have done of some of them:

And finally, we leave you with the direct links to buy Delonghi coffee grinders in case you dare to look at them on Amazon:

Spare parts for Delonghi coffee machines

When we go to look for spare parts for a Delonghi coffee machine, we will find a very wide variety depending on the type of machine we have at home.

Filters for Delonghi coffee machines

As this brand specialises in espresso machines, filter holders or loose filters are undoubtedly one of the most common Delonghi spare parts. In many cases, they are available with the exact dimensions and diameters, so check well which model you have at home to choose the right replacement. At Amazon, they all look the same, and sometimes the diameter is not completely specified.

Delonghi spare jugs

Carafes are not exclusive to drip coffee machines. In the case of Delonghi, the Alicia model also has a small transparent jug in the upper body, which may need to be replaced in the event of an accident or breakage.

Please note that the jug is different depending on which Delonghi Alicia model you have (the normal or the plus).

Water tanks for Delonghi coffee machines

Replacement water tanks at Delonghi are quite common, and not only because of the number of espresso machines in their catalogue, but also because of the Delonghi capsule coffee machines (the ones they make for both Nespresso and Dolce Gusto).

Practically all of them have their own Delonghi tank refill, as each machine model has a different tank shape and size. These you see here are just a small sample.

Which are the cheap Delonghi coffee machines?

Well, faced with such a wide range as that offered by this brand, the answer to this question must be carefully considered. Naturally, of all the machines we have presented on this page, the cheapest Delonghi coffee machine is the EC7 model. It is a hydro pressure coffee machine, and although it is top of the range in its segment, its price will always be lower than that of espressos or super-automatics.

In any case, we are going to review all the cheap Delonghi coffee machines according to their typology so that you can have a reference:

  • In the case of the Italian ones, the cheapest is the Delonghi Alicia… more than anything else because it is the only model that exists in the brand.
  • In hydro-pressure coffee machines, the Delonghi EC7 is more or less at a slightly lower price than the previous one.

  • If we go to the filter coffee machines, Delonghi’s most economical is the 1.25 litre ICM 15210. The most basic one.

  • The field of manual espresso is where we find more to choose from. In this case there can be several with a similar price, but the most economical is always the EC-145 (or the updated version EC-146).

And if we go to the most exclusive, the cheapest automatic Delonghi coffee machine is the ECAM 22.110, which is also one of the best-selling super-automatic machines with the best quality-price ratio in the whole industry.
