If you are interested in an expresso machine that can do it all, the Delonghi 5400 is what you should get. The 5400 will grind, tamp, brew, and even clean itself in under a minute! For grinding, it has 13 different adjustments for fineness. The heating system has two water heating systems which you will definitely notice helps speed up the cycle time. The simple controls that are programmable make it so quick and easy to use in comparison to other machines. This machine can remember your favorite milk-based or expresso drinks. Think about how much time you'll save avoiding having to reset your machine every time you use it. Also, when you are in a hurry the 5400 has an energy-saving auto shut-off. One of the best features is the cleaning process, because you want your machine to be in its best shape. The brew group is removable so you can rinse it and the 5400 will alert you when the boiler needs to be descaled. Descaling isn't hard at all since all you have to do is add the solution and push a button.
