Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great for espresso enthusiasts who like to drink more than just espresso
The DeLonghi Magnifica is an espresso machine, but it’s not limited to just making espresso. It can make any coffee drink, including cappuccinos, lattes, regular coffee, and even frothy specialties.
Pro Great for people who dislike digital controls
The DeLonghi Magnifica uses manually operated dials to input settings. These are more reliable than the digital controls found most new coffee makers, which can feel unresponsive and malfunction more often.
Pro Makes serving multiple cups easier
The DeLonghi Magnifica has a hot plate at the top, which allows you to keep multiple cups at the same temperature. This helps when serving your guests, because the first cup won't cool down before the others, allowing everyone to enjoy the same great taste.
Pro Saves you space on the counter-top
Not only is the DeLonghi Magnifica smaller than most espresso machines, but it also has a built in burr coffee grinder. This gives it the functionality of both a coffee grinder and a coffee maker, so you won’t need to get a separate coffee grinder.
Con The built-in grinder operates loudly
The DeLonghi Magnifica's built-in grinder is very loud, so you have to be careful when operating it early in the morning or late at night, since it will most likely wake up anyone sleeping in the nearby rooms.
