DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 4000
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110
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

3.Has integrated filter
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 4000
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110
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 4000
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110
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 4000
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110
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

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 Magnifica ESAM 4000
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110
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 Magnifica ESAM 4000
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.110
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.
