338mm

375mm

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

238mm

285mm

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

34590.92cm³

38475cm³

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

5.Has PID controller
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 4000
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 ECAM 23.210
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 4000

4.Has a 3-way valve
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 4000
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.Has a pre-infusion function
DeLonghi ECAM 23.210
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 4000
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.

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 ECAM 23.210
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 4000
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.
