| About DeLonghi |
DeLonghi has been high profile Italian brand for more than 100 years, providing high quality, efficient, innovative, and stylish domestic products. Instantly recognisable, DeLonghi possesses a unique design quality that, when combined with DeLonghis technical expertise, creates products that truly stand alone.
DeLonghi Quality and coffee
Quality and reliability remain integral to our brand values, and all products are subjected to rigorous quality checks. This is particularly true of coffee makers, a key focus of DeLonghi, and the top of the range machines are still designed, produced and assembled by hand in the Italian production sites, in order to uphold the expected high standards.
Every single bean-to-cup coffee machine is tested, and makes a cup of coffee, before being thoroughly cleaned and released to the retailers. Each machine is also given a unique barcode to track its history should anything happen to it. The latest and most premium bean-to-cup machine PrimaDonna is so carefully made that it will make up to 30,000 coffees in its lifetime certainly a quality investment.
Magnifica EAM3200 is one the best domestic bean-to-cup espresso, lungo, and cappuccino machine on the market, with ingenious design and innovation. It allows consumers to make 15 BAR restaurant and coffee-bar standard coffee in the comfort of their own homes, and in the simplest way. All aspects of a typical professional pump espresso machine (like the ones you see in your highstreet coffee bar) such as grinders, filter holders, etc are found working inside Magnifica EAM3200, DeLonghi has just redesigned them, compacted them, and hidden them inside the machine. Instead of grappling with filter holders and manual levers, Magnifica expertly performs all of these functions at the touch of one button.
| Bean-to-cup journey |
The function of a bean-to-cup machine is just as the name suggests literally delivering coffee straight from freshly ground beans, straight into your cup. Magnifica EAM3200 does this in seconds, and yet the coffee is as good and as fresh as any youll buy in a coffee bar.
After pressing one button to select espresso; the bean-to-cup journey starts at the integral coffee bean grinder. Magnifica has an adjustable professional conical burr grinder to expertly grind the beans to any coarseness.
|The ground coffee is then packed tightly and the internal brewing unit pushes hot water through the coffee at professional 15 BAR pressure. The espresso is then delivered straight into your cup, the whole process taking just seconds. The hallmark of a perfect espresso is recognised by the crema a creamy layer that sits on top of the espresso to seal in the temperature and flavour .The thicker the crema, the better the espresso and the quality of the machine that produced it.|
Cappuccinos are made just as easily using the traditional steam pipe/milk frother, just like the ones you will find in any professional coffee bar. Simply fill a suitable jug with cold semi-skimmed milk (a wide, flat bottomed stainless steel jug is ideal), and dip the steam nozzle in just under the milk. Then turn the steam dial to get the right amount of steam, and, just like in a bar, play with the froth inside the jug to get the perfect volume of bubbles.
Due to the twin boiler system, there is no waiting for the machine to heat up or cool down to make the milk froth and then the espresso each function has a dedicated boiler for instant results.
Magnifica is such a well-designed machine, that it can suit any type of user. It is extremely easy for first time users to make espresso and cappuccinos, and yet it also has lots of programmable functions for the more serious user, so that coffee strength, temperature, quantity etc can be easily set.
