  1. Hi! Anyone with delonghi bean to cup machine what setting have you guys got you're grinder set to? which is best? I've moved mine between 1-3 which has made is slow to come out of the machine.
  2. First post here having done some research and learned a lot from the wealth of posts on here. One thing I haven't learned: how quickly does a 'typical' machine take to be hot enough to pull a shot? I'm looking to make a significant upgrade from my DeLonghi EC220 and have my eye on a number of machines, from the Expobar Leva to the Rocket R58. The machine will be principally to satisfy my addiction to double espresso although it would be remiss not to have something capable of making the full range of drinks. Currently, I get up in the morning, switch the machine on and then 75 secs later
  3. Hi All, I'm new to the Coffee game however I've just bought myself a Sage Duo Temp Pro and am looking for a grinder sub £150. I'm currently using pre-ground coffee and reading on here using a grinder should hopefully be a step up. I don't have a vertical height limit however worktop space is somewhat limited so nothing massive please. I've been looking at the Baratza Encore is this a good option? Are the cheaper ones from De'Longhi any good to start with? Thanks for any advice
  4. For some years I had a gaggia classico espresso machine, which did the job for quite a while, but eventually just stopped working, and couldn't be fixed. I wanted to upgrade to a good bean-to-cup machine to keep the coffee fresher, so bought a DELONGHI MAGNIFICA bean-to-cup espresso which I had heard (where can you road-test these things?) good things about. It made good coffee, but soon developed a fault that, despite my sending it back to the manufacturer two or three times, was never repaired. The grinding heads just didn't catch on the beans, and the machine would whizz and whirr and
  5. Hey guys, New around here and just getting started on my coffee brewing journey, After realising my love for coffee by purchasing an aeropress, I bought an Delonghi EC680M Sage (Breville) Dose Control Pro and I'm looking to try and perfect my espresso. Wondering if anyone has the same kit or similar and was wondering which grind settings and timings you were using for your brewing? Cheers!
  6. My search for my first coffee machine has taken me to this one and I've almost made up my mind. I've read a few reviews and it seems promising on Amazon but I'd like to hear it from "real" people who might have or have used the machine too. Let me know if you have any thoughts on it
  7. Hi I'm Sophie, I've posted a thread on the coffee machine section if anyone can help. Have a Delonghi at the moment but it's starting to go, looking for an improved weekend latte ?
  8. Hi everyone, I'm a newbie so please bear with me . We bought a gaggia classic on eBay last week, and long story short, it's pulling shots way too fast and the seller thinks the solenoid valve for damaged in transit. We're now in a situation where he'll get it fixed or give us a refund. We're weekend latte drinkers mostly and want to move up a level. Our previous machine was Delonghi,uk version of the 155 I think. I found the temperature swings and process of the gaggia more long-winded, and likely it's too much for our needs in the end given rare usage. But I do want
  9. Since buying a Delonghi Scultura two months ago I have succumbed to the coffee bug in a new way. I have since upgraded my grinder to a Sage Smart grinder and replaces the basket with an unpressurized basket. The problem is the basket doesn't quite fit so often ends up either in the bin or occasionally stuck to the machine. Of lesser concern the filter also has three holes in the bottom now as I had to remove a screw to fit the new basket in, which means having two sueperate shots isn't possible. I was wondering if there are any portafilters compatible with Delonghi machines other tha
  10. Hi i'm James from Liverpool, new on here. Just bought this new machine and thought I’d try and get some opinions on the machine or coffee's in general before i delve into using it. I bought the machine because i do really love a nice coffee, i did have a tassimo machine which is ok but it’s hard to find something you really like and then you can't change it how you would like it either. Anyway, i now have this Delonghi machine, seems to get decent reviews given its price, seems to be one of the better machines in its price range, so seems pretty good. I've not actually s
  11. Hi there, I've a Delonghi EAM3200 that's a few years old now. I bought it second hand really cheap cause someone had stuck green coffee beans into it and, in the process of cleaning it out, they hadn't put the grinder section back together properly. I fixed it and we got a brand new coffee machine for €50. Anyway, the backstory is to explain that I've taken it apart a few times in my efforts to fix it so I'm not afraid to get inside the machine. Lately at the end of a brew cycle it's started making a really loud grinding sound and we haven't been able to figure out why. We've cl
  12. At the moment I have a Delonghi burr grinder in my kitchen to grind the beans for my Moccamaster filter machine. I have resorted to buying pre ground coffee as the mess this thing makes from static is unbelievable. When I take the box out after grinding, I find I am getting so much mess on the kitchen worktop. I don't believe for one moment that coffee grinding is a completely mess free operation but this is rediculous. Can anyone give me some tips please to limit this?
  13. It's not for me before anyone asks, I have my Melitta and I love it. Recently I persuaded my workplace to get a Melitta bean to cup, however since then the boss seems to think a Delonghi machine would be better - and a couple of colleagues agree (it's Delonghi, they're great, they know what they are doing, blah blah blah), specifically this one; https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00I6E7B90/?coliid=ISP92BG847J58&colid=1F3I323Z4760R&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it I've laughed at this suggestion and told him categorically that there is no chance the coffee produced will be as nic
  14. Every time I press the steam button my spout just pops out after 2 seconds of steam. There are screws behind the spout should I mess with them or are they not related?
  15. Ok, so I have returned my Sage Barista Express after 2 years and four(!!) replacement machines. Horrendous reliability. Im after the following machine : - make decent, easy flat whites and americanos. - “automatic” as in press a button.. whilst I loved the tamping etc of the Sage it was too hard for my other half to enjoy making coffee. Undecided about the milk aspect - are there any machines that can auto deliver a nice flat white milk? - around £300-£500 Im at a bit of a loss to what machine I want. Is there any fully automatic machines that do all the work and give you
  16. Anyone who read my introduction post the other day will have seen that I just recently entered the world of home espresso making by purchasing a Delonghi Scultura ECZ 351. I quickly realised I'd made a bit of a mistake and should have gone with a Gaggia Classic, but by that stage it was too late to return to the shop. So, I persevered and got a bottomless portafilter and modded the steam wand a little. I'm now pulling what, to me, seem like pretty good shots. But then I am an absolute novice. However, I can't help feeling some buyer's remorse, and despite my better judgement I'm alre
  17. Hey All! I've been looking for a coffee community that knows a thing or two about superautomatic machines and this seemed like the closest to what I'm looking for. Does anyone have experience with the ECAM23.210 and particularly the grinder settings? I've set it to the finest grind and have run a few shots through but every time the shot still pours in about 20 seconds (double shot) which seems way too fast considering it's on the finest grind. Anyone experience the same thing and know any tricks on how to fix it and get the grinder working correctly? Inb4 people upset abo
  18. I've been using a DeLonghi bean-to-cup machine for about a year and although it has a descale function, there is no dedicated cleaning/backflushing cycle. It also runs a short clean cycle through the "group head" when shutting down. I still have a lot of Puly cleaner left over from my Gaggia Classic days and I'm wondering if its possible to use this to clean all the coffee deposits from the machine as I'm sure this isn't done automatically. The machine is an Autentica ETAM 29.510.
  19. Hello. I've inherited an old Delonghi MAGNIFICA ESAM 3000.B, which at first was working fine, but then after a day or 2, has just started failing. I got it for free, but don't want to simply add to landfill, as I'm not one who likes wasting good tech. At first the power button did nothing, and after opening up, I saw it was old and needed replacing on the circuit board. Managed to replace that just fine. It's now in a state where it turns on, but doesn't complete it's start up cycle. Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5TrXW0Zh4g If anyone has any ideas, it would b
  20. My Magnifica machine was running well. After I mucked around with grinder, some coffee is leaking into drip tray. Only Some are still flowing through the sprouts. This happens more when I select 2 cups. I have changed a new infuser... To no effect
  21. Hello :) I’m looking for some advice please. I bought my partner a coffee grinder for Christmas... I think we ground the beans too fine and we seemed to have broken our delonghi coffee machine (the coffee/water would just spill out of the side, possibly we blocked something) anyhoo, we bought a second hand machine instead of fixing it as delonghi were pretty unhelpful and wanted to charge £60 to look at it. My question is.... how are we supposed to grind these beans?! Course? Fine? I’m so worried about grinding again and breaking this machine too.. I didn’t realise it was so complica
  22. Hi, I have an ESAM 5500. (I love it) It has a water spout at the side and a milk container for ...well...milk. Everything was working fine and then suddenly there is not enough draw on the milk jug to froth the milk. I have cleaned the jug top and replaced the o rings on the thingamijig that goes into it, but no joy. Now it won't express hot water from the spout that fits onto it, and I can't hear the chug chug of the pump that usually makes that sound to dispense hot water. I have managed without it for a while, but I really would like that facility. Can anyone give me a heads up of what to
  23. Hi everyone, I appreciate I've got a crap coffee machine and it's probably had its day but I wonder if anyone knows what it means when the 'Ready' pilot light goes off a couple of seconds after I start the extraction - ? I've pre-heated the machine and it hasn't been doing this previously but started yesterday, so effectively it's a complete gamble each time as to whether the light stays on during the extraction or goes straight off - I'm guessing it means the boiler temp has suddenly dropped or something but I just wanted to try to be sure before I chucked it and upgraded. Thanks
  24. Hi, I'm new to home coffee machines and was wondering if this is normal? On my Delonghi EC820 I can extract a shot of espresso no problem. When I switch the boiler to steam and it gets up to temperature, the machine dumps a load of water into the drip tray. Is this normal? Sometimes it just seems to spill all over the counter and make a right mess. Can I stem the flow? Overall I'm happy with the machine as it produces a good drink for a newbie like me. Bought from John Lewis, £250, reduced to £120 in the Black Friday sale.
  25. Hi All, Would like to try this machine on grinding beans for the first time. Does anyone have any suggested dial settings for an espresso. I'm using Lavazza beans if that makes any difference Thanks Daz
