Dèlonghi DELONGHI ECAM23 : Probably one of the best in its field.

Be prepared for a tiny cup of coffee. I have to press ‘extra long’ and ‘two cups’, followed by two shots of steamed milk, to fill my mug. Good tasting coffee and actually hot, unlike some coffees from machines. It does gobble up the coffee beans though, probably because i fill a mug. A standard cup of coffee should be 200-250ml, but a standard with this is a fraction of that. Would have preferred a commercial type machine that’s plumbed in to the mains, but they’re out of my price range unfortunately, even the recon ones. Anyway it saves me a fortune on shop-bought lattes.

Love it getting used to it now,i am still not sure about lattes yet,but all in all it is a nice machine,good buy.

Brilliant small , perfect , a little bit worse to clean than its big brother. But all in all a good machine.

Easy to use, very happy with this machine.

Bought this because we liked the idea of no plastic coffee pods or fiddly steel coffee pods, and we wanted the freedom of using our own coffee beans from any source. Had it a year now (since dec 17) and still very pleased with it – i have used it every day since purchase – plain americana coffees for breakfast and cappuccinos for treat. It’s capable of doing other coffees, too, but since cappuccino is my favourite i don’t bother with them, i have made guests normal, white coffee with it though and it seemed ok. Very easy to use and maintain. We can use the hot water tap for teas, too. Now that the complementary filter has expired, we just use regular filtered water – couldn’t see point in buying a separate, dedicated one when we already use a jug filter which does the same job. I occasionally have to use pre-ground coffee when we’re away from home, and you can really taste the difference from bean-to-cup or ground coffee – so it’s real to come home to proper, fresh coffee again. It’s true the cappuccinos aren’t too hot, but not too bad – i warm up my cup first but i haven’t tried to turn up the temperature, i’ll give that a go sometime. I would recommend this product and if/when mine gets too old and starts to fail, i’ll be happy to buy the updated version of the time but so far, mine’s still going strong.

Obviously quality of coffee depends on the coffee beans that are used. So with good quality beans this will make a nice coffee & comparable to coffee shop quality. Frother works very well, however can be a bit of a pain & expense to getting a replacement. Our machine developed a fault where the coffee was being dispensed very slowly & frother needed replacing after several weeks of use. However delonghi collected & fixed the machine- expect to wait a couple of weeks to get you’re machine back. You can turn up coffee temperate on settings but may still be a bit cooler for those who like their coffee hot.

Having an espresso machine from delonghi already for some years i decided to upgrade to a bean-to-cup when a very tempting sale offer came up on this model from another retailer. The quick and dirty review would be that it is very good with a few minor caveats. The major one being that the delivered temperature of a cappuccino or other fairly milky drink is actually quite tepid and needs to be blasted in the microwave to be acceptable. A minor point is that the chrome ‘footplate’ is hilariously easy to scratch and after just a couple of days of use it already looks tatty from ceramic mugs and such. This is a shame for an otherwise fairly good looking machine, i say ‘fairly’ because it does look a bit plastic fantastic for what you’re paying for. I think the black version does look a lot better but that wasn’t available, just be aware the silver does look rather tacky if you’re a bit kitchen vain. On the plus side, it does make very good coffee and is a breeze to use (once you’ve waded through a million user definable options to get your coffee the way you like it)you will waste (or end up drinking) a lot of coffee in the first few days believe me, there’s a lot of faffing about to learn how to make something other than the automatic one-button cappuccino. And it should be pointed out, that’s what this machine is first and foremost, a cappuccino maker. You can make things like lattes, flat whites and other types but it takes personal experimentation and learning to do so. There are no other pre defined options than.

I bought this machine to replace an older delonghi bean to cup that i bought about 6 years ago. This machine is far superior, the taste, the grind are excellent and although i’ve never liked milky drinks, i have made regular cappuccinos and they are incredible.

Having bought delonghi before 2008 bean to cup from sainsbury’s it was reduced to £194 from £400 and i bought delonghi 23. 460 from curryspcw’s £349 plus 1 year free service and £149 worth of coffee beans and cleaning stuff, is good to shop around and it works perfect, thanks delonghi.

A bean-to-cup coffee machine that makes espresso, lungo and cappuccino. The obvious thing about the ecam 23. 460 is that it is cheaper than most others. It is quite hygenic without a lot of maintenance. If you’ve previously had a pod type coffee maker, this is no more difficult to operate and makes much better coffee.
