General info

1.thickness

360mm

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.
2.weight

10.5kg

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.
3.height

375mm

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

285mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.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 an integrated grinder
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
2.Cup clearance is adjustable
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
An adjustable cup clearance is useful when you wish to use larger cups and mugs, such as when making a latte macchiato.
3.Has a steam wand
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
4.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.
5.Has cup warmer
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
With a cup warmer you can heat the cups before pulling your espresso so that it doesn't go cold quickly, which affects the taste and quality. It also means that you don’t have to manually heat them using hot water.
6.bean hopper capacity

200g

A bigger bean hopper means that you have to refill it less often.

Water source

1.Has a removable water tank
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
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 PID controller
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
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.

Maintenance

1.Automatic milk circuit cleaning
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
The machine automatically cleans the milk circuit, meaning that the machine requires a minimal amount of cleaning.
2.Indicates when drip tray is full
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
With a drip tray indicator the machine informs you of when you need to empty the tray.
3.Automatic coffee circuit rinse
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
The machine automatically cleans the coffee circuit, meaning that the machine requires a minimal amount of cleaning.
4.Has sleep mode
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
After a certain period of being idle, the device will switch to a sleep mode to conserve power.

Features

1.programmable buttons

3

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 3500
With one press of a button you can create a cappuccino.
3.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.
4.Has a pre-infusion function
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
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 ESAM 3500
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.
2.Uses coffee pods
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 3500
The machine uses coffee pods or capsules, which offer different flavors and types of coffee.
