General info

1.thickness

360mm

430mm

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.
2.weight

10kg

9kg

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.
3.height

375mm

338mm

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

285mm

238mm

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

38475cm³

34590.92cm³

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

You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
2.Has burr grinder
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
A burr grinder works in such a way that you can get a consistent, uniform size of grind each time, which is one of the key aspects of getting great tasting espresso. On the other hand an inferior blade grinder often leaves you with an inconsistent grind.

DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210

4.Has a steam wand
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
5.Cup clearance is adjustable
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210

3.Has integrated filter
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600

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
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
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 PID controller
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
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.
6.Water tank is transparent
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
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.

Features

DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600

With one press of a button you can create a cappuccino.
2.Has integrated milk frother
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600

3.Has a pre-infusion function
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
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.
4.Has a 3-way valve
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
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.
5.Can brew and steam simultaneously
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
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.
6.number of grind settings

13

13

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.

Miscellaneous

1.Uses ground coffee
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
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.
