DeLonghi ESAM3300 Review

Super-Automatic Espresso Maker  9/10


DeLonghi ESAM3300An espresso machine that does nearly everything for you to make delicious coffee, this DeLonghi super-automatic model still gives you control over temperature, frothing, and the coffee grounds’ fineness. The espressos it produces are truly rich, with a thick crema on top. While some other espresso machines have very limited space under the coffee spigot to hold mugs, this DeLonghi machine allows you to adjust the height of the nozzle so you can fit tall cups as well. The control panel takes some getting used to because of the amount of buttons and dials, but operating the machine truly isn’t that difficult, and cleaning it is just as easy. For $599, you’ll get superior performance and fine coffee.
