De'Longhi Magnifica bean-to-cup espresso and cappuccino machine
The Magnifica ESAM4200 is a must for any budding barista taking their first step into domestic bean-to-cup machines. You can make an espresso or an Americano at the touch of a button, and using the traditional milk frother you can make the perfect lungo, latte, cappuccino, or other milky drink. It produces 15-bar restaurant and coffee house standard coffee in the comfort of your own home, and in the simplest way.
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 Magnifica ESAM4200: 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.
Traditional milk frother
Café lattes, cappuccinos, and latte macchiatos can be made using the traditional milk frother to froth the milk. Using any cold milk, you can adjust the steam pressure and manually steam the milk in a barista-style fashion to create the ideal froth.
The electronic steam and coffee thermostat ensures accurate adjustable steam control. The ESAM4200 can be set to adjustable quantities of coffee and water, which help create that ideal, individually-tailored cup of coffee every time.
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
The brewing unit provides optimal 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 a type of boiler found in De'Longhi bean-to-cup coffee machines. It only heats enough water for your coffee serving, achieving 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 also designed to be more energy efficient than traditional boilers. The coffee temperature can be tailored further in the menu settings.
One or two cups
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.
Personalising coffee functions
Two rotary dials on the machine allow you to tailor your favourite coffee by the amount of water and the coffee strength (amount of coffee ground).
Automatic shut off
The Magnifica ESAM4200 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.
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.
The bean-to-cup journey
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.
