Delonghi automatic coffee machines

Delonghi automatic coffee machines are grouped into three series or generations, which are chronologically called ESAM, ECAM and ETAM. The ESAMs are the oldest (the early 2000s), the ECAMs came later (late 2000s), and finally, the ETAM range of machines are the most recent to come onto the market.

It is essential to make it clear that this nomenclature is only a chronological distinction and that in each of the three series, it is possible to find mid-range, high-range and even very high-range coffee machines. Here are the five best-selling Delonghi coffee machines on the Internet today so that you can compare before you start:

Which is the best Delonghi coffee maker? Well, you’ve already seen it; the Primadonna Elite model is currently the company’s top-of-the-range machine. If you have the will and budget, you know. It’s the ECAM 650.75 model.

Another essential aspect that you should know before buying your automatic coffee machine is that the flat black coffee, the espresso of a lifetime, will taste the same to you – just as good – whatever you choose. It is because the coffee brewing unit is essentially the same in all the models and series of Delonghi super-automatic coffee machines.

As you start to move up models and pay more money, what you get are mostly advantages and upgrades in the control panel, in the manufacture of the coffee machine, or additional features in the preparation of mixed drinks (milk frother, cappuccino brewing, lattes, etc.).

So before deciding to buy, we advise you to think very carefully about what type of coffee you are going to consume and how often because perhaps the best Delonghi automatic coffee machines are not necessarily the most suitable for your needs.

Delonghi Automatic Coffee Makers: Prices and All Models

Having made these clarifications, we will now present the various models of each of the Delonghi super-automatic coffee maker series. We will briefly discuss their main features and the functions that differentiate them.

If you want to know more about a specific coffee maker, the best thing to do is to access directly to its analysis on our web (that’s why we have linked all of them).

Before that, let’s take a look at your current rates. As you can see: prices for all tastes.

ESAM Delonghi Coffee Makers

The ESAM automatic range is Delonghi’s most extended running range. It started back in the early 2000s, and the first models, such as the ESAM 2200 or ESAM 2900, quickly became popular within the industry.

Although there are other superior Delonghi ESAM coffee machines, we have chosen to highlight the Delonghi ESAM 3200 above them all, mainly because of its value for money. This ESAM 3200 model is part of Delonghi’s Magnifica series (you can see its logo on the front) and offers a battery of options to customize the coffee superior to other Delonghi machines with a lower range. This feature and the exclusive Brew to Cup system (from bean to cup, at the touch of a button) are the central guarantees of this coffee maker.

Finally, at the top of the ESAM line, we find models such as the ESAM 4000, the ESAM 5400 or the spectacular Prima Donna Avant (ESAM 6700) that can satisfy the highest demands – and budgets – of the market.

ECAM Delonghi Coffee Makers

The ECAM generation includes some of the most popular coffee machines in the entire range of Delonghi machines. It is the case of the ECAM 22.110, by far the most sold automatic on the Internet from our website, and which is possibly the one that combines the best balance between price and performance (there lies the secret of your success, without a doubt).

It is a coffee maker whose essential features are the same as those of the rest of the firm’s automatics. 15 bar pressure, 1.8-litre water tank, steamer tube, two sizes of coffee (long and short), intensity selector the 22.110 offers everything a home user could ask for, for a more than adjusted price.

On a higher step, but also more expensive, we find the ECAM 23.460 and ECAM 23.210 coffee makers. The 23.460 model is the same coffee maker as the 23.210, but with the addition of an additional tank for milk and an automatic system for preparing cappuccinos and lattes at the touch of a button. So, if you’re a fan of mixed drinks, opt for the 23.460. If not, you’ll have enough of the 23.210.

We should also mention that this ECAM generation is the first appearance of the Primadonna, the maximum exponent of Delonghi’s premium coffee machines. This impressive coffee maker was named ECAM 28.465, or ECAM Primadonna, and years later, it would continue with the ETAM Primadonna model (ETAM 35.336, to be precise).

Finally, within the ECAM line, the Eletta range is also opened, with three leading exponents: the Delonghi Eletta Plus, the Eletta Top and the Eletta Top Cappuccino. The Delonghi Eletta are more modern and advanced coffee machines than the first ECAM, although their range of features is the same.

The Delonghi Eletta Plus corresponds to the references ECAM 44.620 and ECAM 45.326. It differs from the other two Delonghi Eletta coffee machines in that it does not allow the automatic preparation of cappuccinos and lattes (when we say automated, we mean by pressing a single button on the panel).

ETAM Delonghi Coffee Makers

The ETAM Line is the highest range of Delonghi automatic coffee machines and generally groups together the company’s top-of-the-range coffee machines -also of higher price-. Likewise, they are the most recently manufactured machines in the entire range of Delonghi automatic machines.

Their two main models are the Delonghi ETAM 29.620 and the Delonghi ETAM 29.510.

Even though these are coffee machines of identical dimensions and weight, the differences between the two are very noticeable (always in favour of the 29.620, which is the model with the highest range).

The two main ones are that the ETAM 29.620 has a digital display on the control panel, while the ETAM 29.510 is only operated with buttons. The ETAM 29.620 also includes an improved cappuccino system, with more recent technology than the traditional ETAM 29.510, with two buttons integrated into the steamer tube that allows us to choose whether we want to serve milk foam or just hot milk. This last function is convenient if we have children at home, and we want to prepare instant drinks such as chocolates, milk with cocoa, etc.

To clear up any doubts, we will tell you that ETAM 29.510 is called Autentica while ETAM 29.620 is called Autentica Plus.

The image below corresponds to the Delonghi model ETAM 29.620:

There is an improved version of the latter, which is the Delonghi ETAM 29,660. It is identical to ETAM 29.620 but with the inclusion of an additional milk tank, which multiplies the possibilities of using the skimmer. This new compartment even incorporates its cleaning system, independent from that of the rest of the coffee maker.-

Delonghi Magnifica automatic coffee machines

These models start from the essential range of the firm and arrive, the most advanced, up to the medium range. If you are looking to buy a cheap Delonghi automatic coffee maker, you will probably choose one from this series. Here we go:

Delonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22,110

Delonghi’s best-selling automatic coffee maker, the Delonghi ECAM 22.110. It’s got to be something. Well, yes, because of its value for money. It’s pretty cheap for a super-automatic, and that’s heavy in the end.

Delonghi Magnifica S ECAM 21.117

Various body colours (white, black and silver) for an earlier version than the well-known ECAM 22.110. Performance is identical.

Delonghi Magnifica ECAM 23.120

An evolved version of the ECAM 22.110, still without a screen, but with a much more powerful Panarello skimmer in stainless steel, the ECAM 23.120. The variety of automatic drinks remains the same.

Delonghi Caffé Corso ESAM 2600

This automatic coffee maker Caffé Corso by Delonghi, does not belong to the Magnifica line. Still, we include it in this list because the model was just before the ESAM 3000 that we comment below. It is a basic range automatic coffee machine, and quite economical.

Delonghi Magnifica ESAM 4000

ESAM 4000, during this time, some designs were changed, some controls were moved, but the capabilities and performance of the machine were the same as the ESAM 3000 and 3200.

This model is already a bit old but quite generous (1.8-litre capacity). The only drawback is that it has some basic controls, all through buttons and dials.

Delonghi Magnifica ESAM 4200

It’s a redesign of the ESAM3000. The features are the same, but the user interface, although rudimentary, is better finished and distributed.

It incorporated a new function of instant reheating of the infusion group, which allowed to make several espressos almost without waiting.

Delonghi Perfect Cappuccino ESAM 5500

The ESAM line continues to advance towards the Perfect Cappuccino model (we have already left the Delonghi Autentica series). This machine is distinguished from the previous ones by the incorporation of an LCD screen, a completely redesigned user interface, and the milk tank that allows us to make automatic cappuccinos—a much more powerful machine than the previous ones.

The milk tank version of the previous model.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus ECAM 370.95

It is the most advanced and has a built-in milk tank.

Delonghi Autentica automatic coffee machines

With many nuances, but if those of the Dinamica series were the essential range, the Delonghi Autentica super-automatic coffee makers could be classified as a medium range. Almost all of them can be used to make automatic cappuccinos, and the vast majority of them fall under the ETAM nomenclature.

Delonghi Autentica ETAM 29.510

It is a very compact machine, above all very narrow, with a capacity of 1.3 litres—the most modest version of the Delonghi Authentic super-automatics.

Delonghi Autentica Plus ETAM 29.620

The ETAM 29.620 already has a small LCD screen, where we can see information about the status of the machine at all times.

Delonghi Authentic ETAM 29.660

Same as the previous model, but with the included milk tank that allows us to make automatic cappuccinos at lightning speed.

Delonghi Eletta automatic coffee makers

A line of high-end machines, which we can place halfway between the Autentica and the Primadonna. They all belong to the ECAM 44 and 45 terminologies and are quite large machines in size.

Delonghi Eletta Plus

It’s a top-of-the-range coffee maker but the most “modest” of the Eletta series. It’s already out of print on the Internet. It’s the ECAM 44.620 model.

Delonghi Eletta Cappuccino

It is the ECAM 44.660 model, and as its name indicates, it allows us to prepare drinks with automatic milk foam. It has some options in the menu, such as Cappuccino or Milk Menu, which do not appear in the ECAM 44.620 Eletta Plus model.

Delonghi Eletta Cappuccino Top

We go up to the ECAM 45.766 model, which has a user interface with more options and a 1.9-litre capacity tank. Black or white bodywork to choose from.

Delonghi Primadonna automatic coffee machines

The Primadonna series, of course, represents Delonghi’s highest quality standard and all its models are either mid-range or high-end. The best super-automatic coffee machines from Delonghi are to be found here, within the Primadonna series. They all have a built-in milk tank, automatic cappuccino processing and are divided into four basic models: Evo, Elite, Exclusive and Deluxe.

Delonghi Primadonna Evo

With an LCD screen and a 1.3-litre water tank. It is a mid-range coffee maker and is the most basic model (if you can call it that) in the entire line of Delonghi Primadonna super-automatic coffee makers.

Delonghi Primadonna Class ECAM 550.55

The Primadonna Class is the series immediately preceding the Elite. It is much larger than the Evo: the tank can hold up to 2 litres.

Delonghi Primadonna Class ECAM 550.75

A version of the Primadonna Class with a better finish (stainless steel) than the 550.55.

Delonghi Primadonna Elite ECAM 650.55

The Primadonna Elite coffee machines have a 4.3-inch full-colour TFT screen (unlike the EVO, which has a more walking LCD screen) and a 2-litre water tank.

They can be programmed to turn on in advance, and the coffee dispenser can be adjusted from a minimum height of 9 cm to a maximum height of 14.2 cm. These have more functions and are, therefore, somewhat more significant than the Elite models.

Delonghi Primadonna XS Deluxe

It is a very similar model to the Primadonna Elite but somewhat older. The capacity of the grinder is smaller, and the size of the machine is also slightly more compact.

Delonghi Maestosa: The Queen

The Delonghi Maestosa automatic coffee maker corresponds to the Delonghi EPAM960.75 model, and as you can see, it has nothing to do with the other models we have seen in this guide. It costs several thousand pounds, and it belongs to a completely different line of machines (EPAM). It is not usually available on the Internet, unfortunately.

delonghi maestosa epam 960 75 glm

It’s a professional-oriented machine, ideal for small businesses, which allows us to make such exciting products as coffee shakes or hot chocolate through an additional container that we can’t find in other coffee machines and that Delonghi calls a Mix Carafe.

The Delonghi 960.75 Maestosa includes sensors of all kinds, two coffee tanks and two independent grinders, or the LatteCrema System technology capable of making two cappuccinos simultaneously.

Frequently asked questions about Delonghi automatic coffee machines

There are always doubts in a sector as complicated and as broad as the Delonghi super-automatic, so we will summarize the most frequent ones with the idea of clarifying the most critical points:

What’s the difference between ECAM, ESAM and ETAM coffee machines?

No line is better than another. In each of the three lines, you can find low, medium or low range machines. The ESAM is the first automatic machine that Delonghi brought out; the ECAM is the most popular and well-known, and the ETAM are the newest and somehow the highest range. But it’s just a matter of name, so in each line, there are many variants.

Is it worth buying a Delonghi supercomputer versus an arm express?

If you drink a lot of coffee a day and of different types (not just espressos), then, in the long run, you’ll pay back the initial investment, which is much more expensive.

Delonghi or Saeco automatic coffee machines?

If you’re looking to spend a little money, then a Delonghi. If you are looking for the mid-high range, then Saeco and Delonghi compete on a par.

Can you get the Delonghi Venezia automatic coffee maker on the Internet?

The Delonghi Venezia is the ESAM 2200 model. It is ancient and is no longer available through official distribution channels.

In any case, never forget to consult our guide to problems and breakdowns in Delonghi coffee machines, where we compile a massive set of tips and recommendations to deal with the most common doubts about these machines.

Comparison: Delonghi or Krups automatic coffee machines?

Krups and Delonghi are two of the most successful manufacturers of superautomatic machines on the Internet and throughout Europe, so if you’re buying your first machine, it’s easy to hesitate between the two.

In general, both brands have a similar and extensive catalogue in the low range (models around 300 Pounds) and especially in the medium range. However, if you are looking for a high-end automatic coffee machine, Delonghi will be your best option. The models in Delonghi’s Primadonna line have almost no equivalent in Krups, and they also compete with guarantees for market leadership.

By the way, here you can find out about all the Krups automatic coffee machines, to compare model by model.

Second-hand Delonghi coffee machines

An excellent way to save money, if you’re not in a hurry to buy your machine, is to keep an eye on the market for second-hand Delonghi coffee machines. Because they are costly, second-hand or reconditioned models can have discounts of several hundred pounds from their original price. It’s all a matter of combing the market and finding the best deal right on the machine you’re interested in. Remember that all refurbished Delonghi coffee machines are checked and certified by Amazon!
