General info

1.warranty period

2

2

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

17kg

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

285mm

280mm

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

360mm

386mm

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

38475cm³

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 Magnifica ESAM 3200
Gaggia Accademia
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 a touch screen
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3200
Gaggia Accademia
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
3.Has an integrated grinder
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3200
Gaggia Accademia
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
4.Cup clearance is adjustable
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3200
Gaggia Accademia
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 Magnifica ESAM 3200
Gaggia Accademia
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
6.dump box capacity

14

16

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.

Water source

1.Has a removable water tank
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3200
Gaggia Accademia
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
2.water tank capacity

1.8l

1.6l

With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.
3.Has integrated filter
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3200
Gaggia Accademia
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 Magnifica ESAM 3200
Gaggia Accademia
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
5.Has PID controller
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3200
Gaggia Accademia
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 Magnifica ESAM 3200
Gaggia Accademia
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 coffee circuit rinse
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3200

Features

1.programmable buttons

0

6

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 one touch cappuccino
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3200

3.Has integrated milk frother
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3200

4.Has a pre-infusion function
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3200
Gaggia Accademia
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.
5.number of grind settings

13

8

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.
6.Can brew and steam simultaneously
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3200
Gaggia Accademia
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 Magnifica ESAM 3200
Gaggia Accademia
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.
