General info

1.weight

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Breville Duo-Temp)

7kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.warranty period

1

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Delonghi EC 850.M)

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
3.thickness

406mm

320mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
4.watts per litre

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Breville Duo-Temp)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Delonghi EC 850.M)

Generally, a larger capacity boiler with a higher wattage will be able to recover and replenish quicker. This is useful if making many coffees at once.
5.height

381mm

306mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.volume

51046.38cm³

26928cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
7.width

330mm

275mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
8.Uses ground coffee
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
Ground coffee, especially if freshly roasted and ground, results in much better quality coffee than the kind of results you get with pods or capsules.

Components

1.Has a pressure gauge
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
One of the most important aspects to pulling a great espresso is the amount of pressure used. Aspects such as how tightly tamped the portafilter is can affect the pressure and therefore the overall quality of the extraction. A pressure gauge helps you to adjust your process to achieve a perfect 9 bar of pressure.
2.Has a 58mm portafilter
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
A 58mm portafilter is the most common size in the industry, offering a greater range of accessories to purchase such as portafilter baskets and tampers.
3.Has a steam wand
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
4.Has a commercial steam wand
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
It comes with a commercial style steam wand as opposed to a pannarello steam wand. These are harder to master but can allow you to produce better, richer milk froth.
5.Uses E61 brew group
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
The E61 brew group is the industry standard brew group for espresso machines, which delivers consistent, stable heat in order to help pull the perfect espresso.
6.Uses E61 group head
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
An E61 group head provides excellent temperature stability, a key aspect of producing great espresso. It also has the benefit of a passive pre-infusion feature.
7.Has an integrated grinder
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
8.bean hopper capacity

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Breville Duo-Temp)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Delonghi EC 850.M)

A bigger bean hopper means that you have to refill it less often.
9.Has a display
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
The device has an electronic display to present information to the user.

Water source

1.Water tank is transparent
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
With a transparent water tank you can easily see when it needs to be filled up. This is important as attempting to make an espresso with an empty tank can damage the machine.
2.Has PID controller
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
A PID controller controls the temperature of the boiler electronically. It offers a far greater degree of accuracy and consistency than a regular, mechanical thermostat used to control temperature. This is very important as a temperature of around 92°C to 96°C is key to pulling the perfect espresso.
3.Has a removable water tank
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
4.Has integrated filter
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
5.Has direct water connection
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
The coffee machine can connect directly to the water supply. This ensures you never have to refill the machine with water.
6.Has a hot water outlet
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.
8.boiler size

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Breville Duo-Temp)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Delonghi EC 850.M)

A higher capacity boiler means that you don’t have to refill it as often.

Maintenance

1.Has dry puck feature
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
At the end of the extraction process, all moisture is removed from the puck. This allows you to easily tap out the coffee from the portafilter afterwards, reducing mess and the need to clean it as often.
2.Has cleaning alert
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
The machine alerts you when it requires cleaning.
3.Indicates when drip tray is full
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
With a drip tray indicator the machine informs you of when you need to empty the tray.
4.Has sleep mode
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
After a certain period of being idle, the device will switch to a sleep mode to conserve power.
5.Prevents overheating
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
It has an internal fuse/thermal sensors which prevents the machine from overheating.

Features

1.Has a 3-way valve
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
A 3-way solenoid valve relieves the portafilter of pressure and moisture after the extraction. This produces a dry puck which can easily be removed afterwards. It also means that you don’t have to wait for the pressure to equalise, so that you can make back-to-back coffees.
2.Has a pre-infusion function
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
With a pre-infusion function you get a low pressure of water before it ramps up to around 9 bar of pressure. This gently expands the grinds to get a smooth extraction and to help prevent channeling in the cake.
3.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
With a double boiler or heat exchanger system, you can brew and steam milk at the same time. This has an advantage over single boiler machines where you have to wait between brewing and steaming for the temperature to adjust.
These buttons can be programmed for different types of coffee such as an espresso, doppio or ristretto. This means once you have mastered a particular style of coffee, you can get it the same every time.
5.Has a shot timer
Breville Duo-Temp
Delonghi EC 850.M
The time taken to pull an espresso shot is one of four key elements, and should be around 19-22 seconds. Once you have the grind, dose and tamp correct, you can use the shot clock to time the pull perfectly.
6.number of grind settings

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Breville Duo-Temp)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Delonghi EC 850.M)

A higher number of grind settings gives you more flexibility when choosing the fineness of your ground coffee. The particle size is important as a grind which is too coarse can produce weak tasting espresso, whereas a grind which is too fine can lead to a bitter taste.
