Components

1.Has burr grinder
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 21.117
Gaggia Titanium
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 S ECAM 21.117
Gaggia Titanium
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
3.Has an integrated grinder
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 21.117
Gaggia Titanium
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 S ECAM 21.117

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 S ECAM 21.117

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

13

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.

1.Has a removable water tank
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 21.117
Gaggia Titanium

2.water tank capacity

1.8l

2.3l

With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.
3.Has integrated filter
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 21.117
Gaggia Titanium
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 S ECAM 21.117
Gaggia Titanium
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
5.Water tank is transparent
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 21.117
Gaggia Titanium
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.

Maintenance

2.Automatic milk circuit cleaning
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 21.117

Features

1.programmable buttons

4

0

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 integrated milk frother
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 21.117
Gaggia Titanium
With an integrated milk frother, the machine can automatically produce frothed milk for use in cappuccinos and other drinks.
3.Has one touch cappuccino
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 21.117
Gaggia Titanium
With one press of a button you can create a cappuccino.
4.Has a pre-infusion function
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 21.117
Gaggia Titanium
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.Can brew and steam simultaneously
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 21.117
Gaggia Titanium
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.
6.number of grind settings

13

18

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.

Miscellaneous

1.Uses ground coffee
DeLonghi Magnifica S ECAM 21.117
Gaggia Titanium
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.
