General info

1.weight

7kg

9.07kg

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.thickness

320mm

241.3mm

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.height

306mm

360.7mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.Uses ground coffee
Delonghi EC 850.M
Gaggia Classic
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.
5.volume

26928cm³

17685.9cm³

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

275mm

203.2mm

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

Components

1.Has a steam wand
Delonghi EC 850.M
Gaggia Classic
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
2.Has a 58mm portafilter
Delonghi EC 850.M
Gaggia Classic
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 cup warmer
Delonghi EC 850.M
Gaggia Classic
With a cup warmer you can heat the cups before pulling your espresso so that it doesn't go cold quickly, which affects the taste and quality. It also means that you don’t have to manually heat them using hot water.

Water source

1.Water tank is transparent
Delonghi EC 850.M
Gaggia Classic
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 integrated filter
Delonghi EC 850.M
Gaggia Classic
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
3.Has a hot water outlet
Delonghi EC 850.M
Gaggia Classic
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 a removable water tank
Delonghi EC 850.M
Gaggia Classic
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.

Maintenance

1.Indicates when drip tray is full
Delonghi EC 850.M
Gaggia Classic
With a drip tray indicator the machine informs you of when you need to empty the tray.
2.Has dry puck feature
Delonghi EC 850.M
Gaggia Classic
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.
3.Has sleep mode
Delonghi EC 850.M
Gaggia Classic
After a certain period of being idle, the device will switch to a sleep mode to conserve power.

Features

1.Has a 3-way valve
Delonghi EC 850.M
Gaggia Classic
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.
