General info

1.warranty period

2

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

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.
3.weight

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.
4.width

238mm

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

338mm

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

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.

Components

1.Has burr grinder
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.
2.Has an integrated grinder
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
3.has a touch screen
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
4.Cup clearance is adjustable
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
An adjustable cup clearance is useful when you wish to use larger cups and mugs, such as when making a latte macchiato.
5.dump box capacity

14

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 commercial steam wand
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
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.

Water source

1.Has a removable water tank
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
2.water tank capacity

1.8l

With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.
3.Has integrated filter
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
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 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.Water tank is transparent
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.

2.Automatic milk circuit cleaning
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
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 ECAM 23.210
With a drip tray indicator the machine informs you of when you need to empty the tray.
4.Prevents overheating
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
It has an internal fuse/thermal sensors which prevents the machine from overheating.

Features

1.programmable buttons

0

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.
2.Has integrated milk frother
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
With an integrated milk frother, the machine can automatically produce frothed milk for use in cappuccinos and other drinks.
3.Has one touch cappuccino
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
With one press of a button you can create a cappuccino.
4.number of grind settings

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.
5.Has a 3-way valve
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.
6.Has a pre-infusion function
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.

Miscellaneous

1.Uses ground coffee
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.
