Capacity: 1.8 litres
The Delonghi ECAM 22.110, or Delonghi Magnifica S, is one of Delonghi’s main bets in the automatic coffee machine segment. In this type of coffee maker, you already know, the user enjoys the best features in a home coffee machine and high-quality coffees without the need to have barista knowledge.
You don’t have to control the coffee doses, or know how to press it, or even take care of the grinding. Pour the coffee beans into the machine, press a button, and within seconds you’ll be enjoying a freshly brewed espresso with the unmistakable aroma of freshly ground coffee.
Delonghi, one of the most prestigious companies in the coffee sector (it also makes coffee machines for other brands such as Nespresso and Dolce Gusto), has named this line of automatic coffee machines Magnifica S.
This model, the ECAM 22.110, is Delonghi’s best-selling machine and stands out above all for two qualities that are difficult to find in other automatic espresso machines: the cap, which is designed to maintain the aroma of the coffee tank (you can see this clearly in the last photograph of this analysis), and the super-renovated control panel, which we find particularly convenient. Perhaps the best thing about this magnificent Delonghi ECAM 22.110B.
By the way, the last letter of its nomenclature (22.110B) is B for Black and refers to the characteristic black colour of this model’s casing.
Delonghi Magnifica S Ecam 21.110
If you prefer this model in an attractive white colour (much more eye-catching than black), you should know that Delonghi also sells it, although with a different nomenclature (21,110) and at a higher price. There is nothing written about taste, so evaluate it yourself:
As you can see in the following picture, the control panel includes both manual controls and touch buttons, has very clear icons (you don’t have to read any manual to know at first what each thing is for) and also includes indicator lights that light up when a certain function is activated.
There is no doubt that the control panel of this Delonghi ECAM 22.110 B has a series of qualities that make it, without a doubt, one of the best we have seen in any type of coffee maker.
