De’Longhi Dinamica Ecam 350.35
- Touch screen interface
- Big variety of coffee recipes
- Separate milk walk is a letdown
The Dinamica Ecam is a more competitively priced coffee machine from De’Longhi. However, there are some clear omissions in this range. The biggest letdown, for the price, is the separated milk wand – meaning if you want to make a latte or cappuccino, you’ll have to do so in two stages. That aside, the machine is solid. It has plenty of presets and customisable features and its 1.8-litre reservoir is more than ample. See also Nespresso Krups Prodigio review.
De’Longhi Caffè Corso ESAM
- Silent grinder
- 15-bar pressure
- Auto-cleaning function
The Caffè Corso represents De’Lonhi’s budget bean-to-cup coffee machine – although it’s still not cheap compared to similar specced machines from rival manufacturers. There’s no touchscreen and the design is more basic than its pricier siblings. It’s still simple to operate and makes De’Longi quality coffee.
De’Longhi Lattissima Touch 550
- 6 different modes
- Stylish modern design
- Auto-power off
The De’Longhi Lattissima Touch represents the brand’s most stylish and best value for money machine. The machine has both a water and milk reservoirs allowing you to make multiple drinks at the touch of a button. At £309 it’s competitively priced.
Best De’Longhi Espresso & Capsule coffee machines
De’Longhi Scultura ECZ 351
- Double-floor cream filter Cappuccino system
- Cappucinno system
- Cup warmer
Arguably, the Scultura ECZ 352 is the most stylish coffee machine in the De’Longhi range. Looks aside, it’s a solid machine and it’s well priced. It’s a manual espresso machine with a separate milk wand for frothing milk. Those looking for a press and go coffee machine should look elsewhere. See also: The BEST capsule coffee machines of 2017.
