General info

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

406mm

310mm

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.
3.Uses ground coffee
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
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.
4.volume

51046.38cm³

25339.4cm³

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

381mm

305mm

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

330mm

268mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Components

1.Has a commercial steam wand
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
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.
2.Has a steam wand
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
3.Has a pressure gauge
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
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.
4.Has a 58mm portafilter
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
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.
5.Has anti-burn steam wand
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
Steam wands are a fairly common source of burns when using espresso machines. An anti-burn steam wand has a lining inside that prevents the wand from getting scalding hot.
6.Has a display
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
The device has an electronic display to present information to the user.

Water source

1.Water tank is transparent
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
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 860
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 integrated filter
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
4.Has a hot water outlet
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
5.Has direct water connection
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
The coffee machine can connect directly to the water supply. This ensures you never have to refill the machine with water.
6.Has a removable water tank
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.

Maintenance

1.Indicates when drip tray is full
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
With a drip tray indicator the machine informs you of when you need to empty the tray.
2.Has cleaning alert
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
The machine alerts you when it requires cleaning.
3.Has dry puck feature
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
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.
4.Has sleep mode
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
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 860
It has an internal fuse/thermal sensors which prevents the machine from overheating.

Features

1.Has a pre-infusion function
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
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.
2.Has a shot timer
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
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.
3.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Breville Duo-Temp
DeLonghi EC 860
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.
