4.number of grind settings

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.
5.Has a pre-infusion function
DeLonghi Eletta Cappuccino TOP ECAM 45.366
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 21.117
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 Magnifica S ECAM 21.117
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.
