Product Description

Product Description

De'Longhi PrimaDonna bean-to-cup espresso and cappuccino machine

The PrimaDonna ESAM6700 is a coffee machine designed to give any user the ability to make restaurant and coffee bar standard coffee in the comfort of their own home. It grinds fresh beans internally and has an integrated carafe for frothing fresh milk, delivering all your favourite coffee drinks – espresso, lungo, latte, and cappuccino – at the touch of a button. The PrimaDonna is sleekly styled with a premium stainless steel finish to look attractive in any home.

Milk carafe

All aspects of a typical professional pump espresso machine (like the ones you see in your high street coffee bar), such as grinders, filter holders, and steam pipes, are found working inside the PrimaDonna ESAM6700: De'Longhi has simply redesigned, compacted, and hidden them inside the machine. Magnifica expertly performs all of these functions at the touch of one button. The traditional milk frother allows you to impress your guests by manually frothing the milk whilst making them the ideal cappuccino or latte.

Removable milk carafe

The innovative patented milk carafe plugs straight into the machine, and when you have selected the froth density to tailor your coffee simply press the button on the control panel for latte and cappuccino and the machine does the rest for you.

The system has been designed to ensure the milk never goes inside the main body of the machine to guarantee utmost hygiene at all times. The milk carafe has an auto-clean button, which when pressed cleans the pipes inside the milk carafe so that it can then be unplugged and conveniently stored in the fridge until the next time you'd like a milky coffee. When it's time to change the milk in the carafe, it can be dismantled and all parts can be conveniently popped in the dishwasher.

Integrated burr grinder
Integrated burr grinder

The integrated professional burr grinder has seven adjustable coarseness settings. The taste and quality of your coffee depends heavily on how finely the beans have been ground – choose the finer setting for a stronger taste, or a more coarse setting for a weaker-tasting coffee.

The coffee beans are freshly ground for each serving, and the coffee strength is fully programmable so you can change the amount of coffee it grinds and dispenses from 7 to 11 grams.

Removable brewing unit
Removable brewing unit

The brewing unit provides optimum heat distribution; it does all of the priming, pre-brewing, warming up, coffee dosing, coffee tamping, and extraction for you.

It is automatically rinsed every time you turn the machine on or off, and the innovative design means the brewing unit is removable for easy cleaning and maintenance.


Thermoblock is the type of boiler found in De'Longhi bean-to-cup coffee machines. It only heats enough water for your coffee serving, ahieving a stable and accurately controlled water temperature that is crucial for brewing the ideal coffee.

This reduces warm-up time, so that your coffee machine is ready for use in seconds, and is designed to be energy efficient when compared to traditional boilers. The coffee temperature can be tailored further in the menu settings.

Ergonomic and easy to use

Both the water and coffee ground containers are at the front of the machine, so they can be easily removed for cleaning. The water tank is easy to refill – simply take it to the tap and fill – and will hold up to 1.8 litres of water.

Digital display
Digital display

The intuitive digital display enables you to effortlessly navigate the controls, and tells the user exactly what is happening at all times. It will inform you when the coffee grounds container needs emptying, and when the water tank needs filling, and will take you through all the steps of making your favourite coffee. It even tells you when it's time to descale the machine.

One or two cups
Two-cup option

Select one or two cups of coffee at the same time just by pressing the relevant button. The number of coffees selected is indicated with a single or double cup on the front panel. This function is available for the black coffee options on the machine, and automatically adjusts the amount of coffee ground in a single brewing cycle.

Memory function

The ESAM6700 can memorise your favourite coffee. This can be actioned by programming the amount of milk, water, and coffee you would like to be used, and storing it in the memory. Simply select 'My coffee' on the rotary control to access this function.

Automatic shut off

The PrimaDonna ESAM6700 will automatically switch itself off after a pre-set amount of time has elapsed.

Adjustable coffee dispenser

The coffee dispenser can be moved up or down to accommodate both full-size latte glasses and espresso cups.

The bean-to-cup journey

Digital display

The function of a bean-to-cup machine is just as the name suggests: delivering coffee straight from freshly ground beans into your cup in seconds. After pressing one button to select espresso, the bean-to-cup journey starts at the integral coffee bean grinder: an adjustable, professional conical burr grinder will expertly grind the beans to your desired coarseness.

The ground coffee is then packed tightly by the internal brewing unit. Hot water is forced through the coffee up to a professional 15-bar pressure. The espresso is then delivered straight into the cup. The hallmark of a well made espresso is recognised by the 'crema', a creamy, hazelnut-coloured layer that sits on top of the espresso to seal in temperature and flavour. The thicker the crema, the better the espresso, and the quality of the machine that produced it.

If you have run out of coffee beans or want/prefer to use pre-ground coffee instead (decaffeinated for example), use the control panel to change the settings and put ground coffee in the ground coffee compartment.

De'Longhi quality and coffee

Quality and reliability remain integral to De'Longhi's brand values. All products are subjected to rigorous quality checks. 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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very expensive but nice 9 Jan 2010
    I was in the market for one of these machines for a while and nearly bought the cheaper ESAM6600. I eventually opted for this model because it seemed to offer more flexibility for long coffee. It is the same physical size as the ESAM600 and despite the massive box it comes in, which is mainly packaging; it sits on the kitchen top very nicely.

    Very easy to set up, switch on and select language, then fill with water and coffee beans. The default setting for long coffee is standard strength with a quantity of 175ml. This proved to be quite strong and just right for me. This is delivered with one press of the button, and the first cup tasted perfect even though the manual says it takes a few cups. The strength is easily altered from extra mild to extra strong in 5 grades and the volume from 125 to 250ml. Likewise the machine will make espresso coffee in the range 40 to 120ml. As for coffee with milk, this is also very easy to do, you simply attach the container full of milk and press your desired choice of cappuccino, latte, macchiato or just plain hot milk. The machine will also dispense hot water extending its flexibility. The Long black coffee it produces is excellent and I have also experimented with an espresso topped up with hot water (Americano style). Likewise my wife will on occasion add a further quantity of frothy milk to her drink, or add plain milk to an extra mild small long. The variations seem endless.

    The main difference between this and the cheaper ESAM6600, as far as I can tell, is the pre-programmed quantity and strength settings for long coffee and espresso. On the ESAM6700 there are 5 pre-sets and a custom setting. On the ESAM6600 there is only a custom setting which you need to alter every time you want a different quantity.

    Verified Purchase
    Product was exactly as discribed and looked new and unused, The delivery came in about 3 days. (earlier then estimated) A beautiful machine is a nice addition to my newly modeled kitchen
    After using the machine for a few weeks now ... I managed to recovered from the inital shock of the pricey tag (although i did save on the full RRP) It is a fantastic addition to my kitchen. It produces coffee as good as any Cafe Bar, much quicker and less mess from my old Gaggia. You can rattle a number of coffee's off in no time and with zero mess.
    I appreciate it most in the morning, i switch it on, feed the cats. Select my coffee and it's done in no time. Like having my own private 'starbuck' in my kitchen

    1.Great Coffee
    3.No mess or fuss
    4.would fully recommend this product

    Thanks Folks another succesful buy from Amazon.co.uk!

    5.0 out of 5 stars So easy to use 4 Feb 2010
    I had been looking at various bean to cup coffee machines for a while and had decided between two, the De Longhi ESAM5500 and the ESAM6600 as I liked the idea of one touch with a milk jug which can be kept in the fridge between coffee making, not to mention self grinding and cleaning. Then along comes the ESAM6700 with extra features to make my life easier. Only trouble was the price jumped quite considerably and I had to weigh up whether the extra features were worth the price tag. After much research and consideration I decided on the 6700 which still wasn't yet in the country in the few outlets that were selling them. Having placed it on my favourites list with Amazon priced around the standard 1295 I notice one day they were selling it for 945! A bargain considering the 6600 is retailing for around that.

    My machine arrived promptly and was easy to use straight out of the box. It doesn't come with any beans or cups so make sure you have some in. After filling the water tank and setting it up for language, time, water hardness etc, all very easy using the touch screen, I was ready to go. The first couple of cups weren't brilliant but after that it was great. My husband drinks mostly long black with a nice crema which is programmable to the desired length and strength you want. We usually select "long" and press the two cup button which gives double strength. This machine grinds your beans with 7 variable settings or you can use the pre-ground compartment where you add one measure at a time.

    I drink milky coffee and find the one touch facility OK but may need tweeking to your own tastes. There are a few problems with the milk side of things, nothing major. After a couple of months the milk jug doesn't slide in it's housing as smoothly as it did new.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best Ever ! 20 May 2011
    By Mervyn
    This is indeed the best piece of Kitchen machinery I have ever bought.

    The ability to create better coffee at home than you can buy at any of the usual outlets is really something and great fun especially if you take the time to drive the coffee maker manually .

    Good, freshly roasted, Coffee beans are a must and worth every penny - well pound if I'm honest.

    The machine is easy to clean and appears to be very well made.

    Soya works as well for my Wife as real semi-skimmed milk does for me but we should prehaps invest in out own Jugs in order to avoid the odd domestic !

    Word of warning - not all our friends seem to appreciate the full lecture on the source of the beans and the precise techniques the machine uses in the production of their choosen Coffee - get over it I say ! enjoy.

    Fantastic toy - just buy one !
