3.Has integrated filter
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 4000
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.320
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
4.Has PID controller
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 4000
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.320
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.
5.Water tank is transparent

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.
2.Has one touch cappuccino
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 4000
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.320
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.
4.Has a pre-infusion function
DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM 4000
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 22.320
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

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.
