General info

1.thickness

360mm

429mm

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

7.2kg

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

330mm

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

285mm

215mm

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

38475cm³

30437.55cm³

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

Components

1.has a touch screen
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
2.Has burr grinder
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
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.
3.Has an integrated grinder
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
4.Cup clearance is adjustable
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
An adjustable cup clearance is useful when you wish to use larger cups and mugs, such as when making a latte macchiato.
The machine automatically deposits the used coffee grounds or pods into the dump box after extraction. The dump box capacity shows how many drinks you can create before it is full.
6.Has a steam wand
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.

Water source

1.Has a removable water tank
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.
3.Has a hot water outlet
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
4.Has integrated filter
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
5.Has PID controller
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
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
Philips Saeco Minuto
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.

Maintenance

1.Automatic coffee circuit rinse
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
The machine automatically cleans the coffee circuit, meaning that the machine requires a minimal amount of cleaning.
2.Automatic milk circuit cleaning
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
The machine automatically cleans the milk circuit, meaning that the machine requires a minimal amount of cleaning.
3.Indicates when drip tray is full
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
With a drip tray indicator the machine informs you of when you need to empty the tray.
4.Has sleep mode
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
After a certain period of being idle, the device will switch to a sleep mode to conserve power.

Features

1.Has integrated milk frother
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
With an integrated milk frother, the machine can automatically produce frothed milk for use in cappuccinos and other drinks.
2.Has one touch cappuccino
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
With one press of a button you can create a cappuccino.
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.
4.Has a pre-infusion function
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
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.
5.Can brew and steam simultaneously
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
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.

Miscellaneous

1.Uses ground coffee
DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM 2600
Philips Saeco Minuto
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.
