DeLonghi Eletta Cappuccino TOP ECAM 45.366
DeLonghi Eletta Plus ECAM 45.326
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

DeLonghi Eletta Cappuccino TOP ECAM 45.366
DeLonghi Eletta Plus ECAM 45.326
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 Eletta Cappuccino TOP ECAM 45.366
DeLonghi Eletta Plus ECAM 45.326
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
4.Cup clearance is adjustable

An adjustable cup clearance is useful when you wish to use larger cups and mugs, such as when making a latte macchiato.
5.Has a steam wand
DeLonghi Eletta Cappuccino TOP ECAM 45.366
DeLonghi Eletta Plus ECAM 45.326

Features

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.

DeLonghi Eletta Plus ECAM 45.326
With an integrated milk frother, the machine can automatically produce frothed milk for use in cappuccinos and other drinks.

DeLonghi Eletta Cappuccino TOP ECAM 45.366
DeLonghi Eletta Plus ECAM 45.326
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.
5.Has a pre-infusion function
DeLonghi Eletta Cappuccino TOP ECAM 45.366
DeLonghi Eletta Plus ECAM 45.326
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.
6.Can brew and steam simultaneously
DeLonghi Eletta Cappuccino TOP ECAM 45.366
DeLonghi Eletta Plus ECAM 45.326
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 Eletta Cappuccino TOP ECAM 45.366
DeLonghi Eletta Plus ECAM 45.326
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.
