De'Longhi Magnifica Evo, Bean to Cup Coffee and Cappuccino Maker, ECAM292.81.B, Black
About this deal
If you’re after a longer coffee, however, then you may not always find the coffee and long coffee presets are to your taste. Where pricier machines pour an espresso (or two) and then add hot water to create a longer coffee, the De’Longhi simply passes more water through the ground coffee. The upshot is that it has a tendency to taste bitter. I like to complain a lot. Usually about half-baked “new releases” in my super automatic espresso machine guide 2023. Operating at 1450 watts, this espresso machine is energy efficient, carrying an A energy efficiency class. It is equipped with essential functions such as espresso, cappuccino, and latte macchiato making capabilities, allowing users to enjoy a variety of coffee beverages at home. Additionally, the machine comes with a built-in grinder, ensuring that freshly ground beans can be used for the perfect cup of coffee.
The world hasn’t been waiting for this machine, but it is comparatively affordable and it performs really well. None of this is a big deal. But in my experience, simplicity in the right places is never a disadvantage. DeLonghi Magnifica Evo First Impressions Upgrade to the Magnifica S Smart here, however, and you get a far sturdier and more handsome machine. The strength dial is a really nice touch – it makes it easy for anyone in the household to adjust coffee strength and without needing to digest the user manual beforehand.Take a little time to get the settings just so, and the Magnifica S Smart rewards with consistently tasty coffee with the bare minimum of fuss. Factor in the handy strength dial, smart looks and good-quality build, and De’Longhi is onto a winner. What it is, however, is a smart buy. Once you’ve added fresh coffee beans and got the settings just so, this is a machine that produces a good – if not magnificent – coffee with a minimum of fuss. De’Longhi Magnifica S Smart review: What you need to know Once you’ve decided, a prod of a button efficiently grinds, brews and delivers coffee to your cup. The manual milk frothing adds a little more effort but the flip side is there’s no carafe or milk delivery system to faff around with and clean.
Therefore, you’ll first set the Magnifica Evo’s grinder to the third finest setting. As always. You’ll notice that the stainless steel conical burrs are neither particularly loud nor particularly quiet. As always. Even if DeLonghi’s version isn’t a direct copy, I can’t help but feel like the Italian manufacturer took inspiration from its competitor. With that said, DeLonghi’s overall design is much more modern and streamlined, and the machine is even more compact.

It’s moderately stylish, doesn’t take up too much room on the kitchen counter, and the build quality seals the deal: the water tank, drip tray and grounds bin all slot home with a reassuringly solid feel.
