The DeLonghi Magnifica S (also known as ECAM23210B) occupies less space on the counter while leaving more over headroom than most models, but do not be fooled by its compact design. Its convenient selector dial allows you to choose between standard cafe sizes from espresso, cafe lungo, to the longer Swiss Crema Coffee, and even the programmable "My Coffee" beverage. Press the coffee strength button to choose between 5 flavor settings from extra-mild to extra-strong. Then press either the 1 or 2 cup button, depending on how many or what size drinks you want. The DeLonghi Magnifica S will remember your last choice, a convenient feature to rapidly recreate your favorite drink. The Magnifica S features intuitive communication with familiar icons that illuminate to tell you what function the machine is performing or if it needs you to do something like add water or beans or empty the used coffee drawer or descale the boiler. Additional features include 3 programmable temperature settings, energy-saving auto shut-off, instant reheat, and a counter for the number of cups brewed.
DeLonghi designed the Magnifica S so that you could easily set it to remember your favorite espresso and milk-based drinks. The Magnifica S already comes preset with 4 standard cafe espresso and coffee sizes, but it also includes the "My Coffee" option so you can make your own creation. Turn the rotary dial to "My Coffee" and hold the 1 cup button until the icon begins flashing. When the desired amount of coffee has been dispensed, press the 1 cup button again and the Magnifica S will remember that setting.
The DeLonghi Magnifica S offers a manual steam wand with a special frothing attachment to create rich, velvety milk foam for cappuccinos without any skill required. Simply immerse the wand into your pitcher or cup of milk and press the steam button. Within moments the DeLonghi Magnifica S will blast out steam into the milk while the special cappuccino tip blends steam and air properly throughout. We do recommend using a thermometer to prevent overheating your milk.
The DeLonghi Magnifica S uses a stainless steel-lined thermoblock boiler to provided brewing and steaming power for your coffee drinks with a very fast cycling time. Unlike a traditional boiler, thermoblocks offer rapid warm-up times paired with efficient, on-demand water usage. Turn on the Magnifica S, and it will be ready to brew in just a few moments. ThermoBlock technology channels the water through the heating element while minimizing the amount of water heated to what the user demands. This process ensures water does not become stale sitting in a boiler for an extended period of time, and the stainless steel lining prevents your fresh water from ever acquiring a metal taste. Want to froth or steam your milk? Simply press the steam button, and in a few moments, the DeLonghi Magnifica S will say it is ready for you to open the steam valve to make your cappuccinos or lattes. Additionally, the Magnifica S has a cup warming platform set just above the boiler to help pre-warm your espresso or coffee cups.
DeLonghi engineered the ECAM23210B's grinder to be easy on the ears. The professional-grade, hardened steel conical burrs rotate at a low speed with minimal noise to produce consistent, fresh, and aromatic espresso and coffee. It is fed by a 5.3-ounce coffee bean hopper and has 13 different fineness adjustments to accommodate a wide variety of coffee roasts. In addition, the bean hopper lid has a rubber seal to keep air out as well as a tinted lid to reduce the degrading effects of UV rays. This will keep your coffee fresher over time.
If you like to experiment with new coffee roasts or have a need for decaf from time to time, the DeLonghi Magnifica S offers a clever pre-ground option so that you do not have to swap out beans from the grinder. Simply add 1 scoop (scoop included) of freshly ground coffee into the funnel and have a custom brew in seconds.
The ECAM23210B's 57-ounce water tank is visible from the side but pulls straight out from the front so that you never need to pull out the entire machine just to fill the water tank.
DeLonghi designers know their coffee and have implemented patented grinding technology so that "What you grind is what you brew." The ECAM23210B's conical burr grinder discharges directly into DeLonghi's variable brew group that can brew up to 2 drinks at once. The removable brew group is easy to clean (just rinse under warm water) to ensure a tasty brew and long life of the Magnifica S. Additionally, the ultra-compact size of the brew group reduces the distance water must travel and ultimately results in hotter coffee in your cup.

As with any coffee or espresso machine, the DeLonghi Magnifica XS must be properly maintained to ensure long life and excellent taste. Thankfully, DeLonghi engineers made this process a breeze. To clean the brewing system, simply turn the power off on your Magnifica XS and then open the front door. Remove the brew group, rinse under warm water and replace. Descaling of the boiler is also a critically important process, especially if you are not using treated water. The Magnifica XS will alert you when you need to descale based on the water hardness level indicated on the provided test strip. The process is fully automated; when the descale light begins flashing, all you must do is add the solution and press a button.
