One of the most compact DeLonghi cappuccino machines, the fully automatic PrimaDonna S allows for the convenience of one-touch operation without losing any of the quality that you expect in your coffee drinks. By utilizing the milk container with an integrated frothing system that automatically delivers to your cup both freshly brewed espresso and the perfect amount of steamed or frothed milk, you can be enjoying your favorite coffee beverage with the touch of just one button. When you're finished, the milk container can be easily stored in the refrigerator for later use.
The Magnifica S features a full beverage menu that allows you to select from your favorite standard sized coffee drinks from espresso, cafe lungo, and even the longer Swiss Crema Coffee. If you are looking for something more personal, the Prima Donna S features a "my coffee" setting that allows you to set all of the parameters (water amount, temperature, grind size, and level and amount of milk froth) into memory so that you can reproduce your favorite coffee drink with one simple button press.
The Delonghi Magnifica S utilizes a two stainless steel boiler system to provide brewing and steaming power for your coffee drinks with a very fast cycling time. Unlike traditional boiler systems, thermoblocks offer rapid warm-up times paired with efficient, on-demand water usage. Turn on the machine, and it will be ready to brew and steam in just a few moments. ThermoBlock technology channels only the amount of water demanded by the specific drink through the heating elements. This ensures that water does not become stale while sitting in a reservoir, and the stainless steel lining prevents any metallic taste. Also included is a cup warming platform at the top of the machine.
The ECAM28465B's integrated grinder was designed from the ground up to be easy on the ears and last for a very long time. The professional grade, hardened-steel conical burrs rotate at a low speed to produce consistent, fresh, and aromatic espresso and coffee grounds every time. The grinder is fed by a 5.3 oz. bean hopper and features 13 different fineness adjustments to accommodate a wide variety of roasts. The bean hopper also features a rubber lid-seal and a tinted lid to reduce the degrading effects that UV rays have on coffee.
If you like to experiment with new roasts, or have the need for decaf from time to time, the Delonghi Magnifica S offers an ingenious pre-ground coffee option so that you do not have to swap out beans from the grinder. Simply add one scoop (scoop included) of pre-ground beans to the bypass funnel and have a custom brew in seconds.
The milk frothing container is easily removed to access the hot water spout. Simply place the spout over the discharge. For safety reasons, the machine will not operate its steam or hot water functions without either the milk container or the hot water spout installed over the discharge.
Although the Magnifica S's water tank is visable from the side of the machine, it pulls out from directly in front of the machine so that there is never a need to move the machine to remove the water chamber.
Delonghi designers created the PrimaDonna's grinding system so that "what you grind is what you brew". The conical burr grinding system discharges directly into the machines variable brew group that is capable of brewing two drinks at once. The variable group head is also easily cleaned by running under hot water. This allows the machine to produce great quality coffee over a long period of time.
As with any coffee or espresso machine, the Magnifica S must be periodically cleaned and maintained to ensure that the machine always produces quality coffee and has a long life. Thankfully, the engineers at DeLonghi have fully automated this process, and have even included a hard water test strip so that you know when it's time to clean the machine. By simply rinsing the variable group head in hot water, and performing the fully automated Descaling cycle when the machine indicates that it is time to do so, you'll be enjoying quality coffee for a very long time.
