From the country that invented and perfected the espresso comes a machine of unrivalled versatility. The De'Longhi Magnifica with a patented Autocappuccino system embodies everything truly Italian about coffee: style, quality and the perfect intensity of flavour at the touch of a button.
De’Longhi has been a high-profile Italian brand for more than 100 years, providing high-quality, efficient, innovative and stylish domestic products. Instantly recognisable, De’Longhi possesses a unique design quality that, when combined with De’Longhi's technical expertise, creates products that truly stand alone.
Quality and reliability remain integral to De'Longhi's brand values and all products are subjected to rigorous quality checks. This is particularly true of coffee makers, a key focus; top-of-the-range machines are still designed, produced and assembled by hand in the Italian production sites in order to uphold our exacting high standards.
Every single bean-to-cup coffee machine is tested and makes a cup of coffee before being thoroughly cleaned and released to be sold. Each machine is also given a unique barcode to track its history should anything happen to it, giving you faith in your quality investment.
The Magnifica with patented Autocappucino system is simply the best value domestic one touch bean-to-cup espresso, lungo, latte and cappuccino machine on the market, with ingenious design and patented innovation. It enables consumers to make 15 bar restaurant and coffee bar standard coffee in the comfort of their own homes, simply and easily.
All aspects of a typical professional pump espresso machine (like the ones you see in your highstreet coffee bar), such as grinders, filter holders and steam pipes, are found working inside the machine, De’Longhi has simply redesigned, compacted and hidden them inside the machine. Instead of grappling with filter holders and fiddly cappuccino steam pipes, Magnifica with Autocappucino system expertly performs all of these functions at the touch of one button.
The function of a bean-to-cup machine is just as the name suggests: literally delivering coffee straight from freshly ground beans into your cup. Magnifica with Autocappucino system does this in seconds, and yet the coffee is as good and as fresh as any you’ll buy in a coffee bar. After pressing one button to select ‘espresso’, the bean-to-cup journey starts at the integral coffee bean grinder. The machine has an adjustable, professional conical burr grinder in one of the top compartments to expertly grind the beans to your desired 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 a matter of 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.
If you have run out of coffee beans or prefer to use ground coffee instead the Magnifica has you covered. Using the control panel, just change the settings and put ground coffee in the ground coffee compartment, it’s so convenient and easy to use!
Next, press either the cappuccino, latte macchiato, or caffelatte button on the control panel and select the relevant froth density on the top of the carafe. The cold milk is drawn up into the carafe lid via a thick straw, and at the same time hot steam is pumped through the lid from a dedicated boiler inside the machine. The hot frothy milk is then immediately dispensed into your cup via a stainless steel tube, and a freshly made espresso is delivered into the cup immediately after to combine and make the perfect cup. 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 and delicious results.
The milk carafe can also be easily cleaned. Simply press the ‘clean’ button located next to the carafe handle and hot steam is pushed through the lid and stainless steel tube to flush out any milk residue and sterilise it. The carafe can then be detached from the Magnifica with Autocappuccino system and stored in the fridge with any remaining milk inside until you need to use it again.
A real advantage to the carafe system is that the milk always remains cold--essential to proper milk froth -- and milk never enters inside the main body of the machine, unlike other competitor models, which will warm the milk and make it difficult to clean.
Magnifica with Autocappuccino is such a perfectly designed machine that it will suit any type of user. It is extremely easy for first-time users to make espresso, cappuccinos and lattes at the touch of a button, yet it also has abundant programmable functions for the more serious user, so that strength, temperature and quantity can be easily set and tailored to your unique taste. The digital display also makes this feature very simple, and you can see at a glance exactly what you have selected and programmed.
The digital display tells the user exactly what is happening at all times, so it’s virtually impossible to make a mistake with this machine. It will inform you when it's time to descale the machine (an automatic function that takes a mere 30 minutes), when the grounds container needs emptying and when the water tank needs filling, as well as taking you through all the steps of making espresso and cappuccino, and much much more.
The stylish design and quality build of the Magnifica with patented Autocappuccino system is as you would expect from the high standards of De’Longhi. It’s a stunning and iconic machine offering great value that will quickly become a centerpiece within your kitchen. Let the De'Longhi Magnifica with Autocappucino system enrich all of your senses and give you an intoxicating and unforgettable coffee experience every single day.
