DeLonghi Espresso Machines

DeLonghi is one of the most noticeable premier brands on the market today. The company itself has been producing fine espresso makers for over 100 years in Italy and that staying power really shines through in each and every one of it's machines.

It's true that they make lots of different things such as air conditioners and small appliances...and even household cleaning items! Usually when a company focuses on more than one main product line I get a little nervous, but not with these guys. Their espresso makers continue to enjoy some of the highest customer ratings and satisfaction rates in the industry, and for good reason.

The Company

De'Longhi Group is based in Treviso Italy and was started around 1902. It was officially incorporated in 1950. In 2001 the company bought out a British company that had a lot of Chinese factories and since then a lot of their products have been made in China. That's ok though because the design and all the actual engineering is still done in Italy.

Their U.S. operations are based here:

Fox International
23600 Aurora Road
Bedford Heights, OH 44146
Customer Service: 1 (800) 322-3848
1-866-Latte- Best (1-866-528-8323)

One of the great things about DeLonghi is that they have a pretty diverse product line. Whatever your price range is, they've got something nice for you. Prices start around $100 and vary up to around $2,000 depending on what you're looking for.

DeLonghi Espresso Machines

Broadly speaking I would split their espresso makers into two main categories: Super Automatic Espresso Makers, and Espresso Machines.

Their Basic Espresso Machines Include:

  • DeLonghi EC155 Espresso Maker - $80
  • DeLonghi BAR32 Retro Espresso Maker - $100
  • DeLonghi EC270 15-Bar-Pump Espresso Machine - $150
  • DeLonghi EC702 15-Bar-Pump Espresso Maker, Stainless - $180
  • DeLonghi Caffe Nero Coffee/Espresso Maker BCO264B - $200
  • DeLonghi ECO310BK Espresso Machine - $250

As you can see, there is quite a nice bit of range in prices even at the lower end with their basic espresso machines. There are also some even cheaper models available but I didn't list them because they are steam powered as opposed to pump powered.

Steam powered machines aren't "true" espresso machines so I didn't bother to list them. But keep that in mind, if you see a DeLonghi machine priced under $50, make sure you check to see if it's a steam powered machine - if so skip it!

They also sell some high end super automatic machines, namely the:

  • DeLonghi Magnifica Super-Auto Espresso Machine ESAM3300 - $800
  • DeLonghi Magnifica Super-Auto Espresso Machine ECAM23210B - $1,000
  • DeLonghi Magnifica Digital Super-Auto Espresso Machine ESAM3500.N - $1,500
  • DeLonghi Perfecta Super-Auto Espresso Machine ESAM5500M - $1,800

Generally an espresso maker company usually tends to focus on either the lower end regular single shot espresso machines like those listed in the first list (usually costing between $100-$300) or they focus on the more expensive high end semi and super automatic models like the ones listed in the second list (usually costing between $500 and $5,000). Delonghi successfully straddles the divide by focusing equally on both types of machines - and I think they pull it off very well.

What this means is that whatever your budget, you can find a Delonghi machine that you can be proud to own and that will make quality espresso for you for years to come. This is not always the case with other companies - and it really makes these guys unique.

Check out the links below for specific reviews on each model, and also to find special discounts and deals. You'd be surprised how many hundreds of dollars we can often knock off the super automatic models, and you can even find decent discounts on the lower priced models from time to time as well.

Whatever your price range, keep this in mind; DeLonghi espresso machines are some of the highest rated espresso makers on the market today. They continue to maintain some of the highest customer satisfaction ratings on the market today. Give them a try and you won't be disappointed.
