De'Longhi Elleta Cappuccino Machine Review
The De'Longhi Eletta Cappuccino Machine is an impressive coffee making machine. It can make various types of coffee from Lattes to Flat Whites and the infamous cappuccino.
The adjustable coffee nozzle means you can use any preferred sized cup. Along with the adjustable nozzle the machine has various coffee strength and coffee amount settings so it can cater for any coffee lover!
The machine can be used with whole coffee beans or pre-ground coffee. When using coffee beans the coffee fan can choose how fine the beans are ground (I personally use ground setting 5).Once ground the coffee is put through an infuser then disposed of within an internal compartment (which is easy to clean). I have tried both settings and they work perfectly.
There is an amazing function which allows you to personalise you milk preference. You can create really frothy cappuccinos to milky lattes. Trust me when I say this that the milk settings are AMAZING!
The milk carafe that comes with the machine works amazingly well and it can be detached from the machine and left in the fridge. When prompted, the machine tells you to clean the milk nozzle after use and this can splash hot water on your worktop so I use an empty cup, and place it under the nozzle. This reduces the splash dramatically.
I love the flat white coffee it makes and I am in the process of learning how to use the machines 'auto-start' feature. It would a real treat to wake up with a pre-made coffee, ready and waiting to be drunk, in these autumnal mornings.
Improvements needed for me are.
- A warmer/hotter cup warmer
- Less mess when it self cleans
- Correct milk and coffee amounts when making Cappuccinos (I used 'extra long coffee' setting and it made me half a cup of coffee.)
Overall I love the machine, although their are a few features I feel need improving. It makes GREAT coffee and I really like the milk menu option. I would recommend buying good coffee beans as I have used a cheaper alternative and the coffee doesn't taste as good.
Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quality of materials , Various coffee settingsCons: Can splash , Noisy

De'Longhi Eletta Cappuccino ECAM44.660.B Bean to Cup Coffee Machine - Black
Looking at the aesthetics of the machine, it’s quite a big machine but I don’t mind as it looks nice and modern which appeals to me. On the top of the machine it has a cup warmer on the top but I don’t feel a great deal of heat from it and couldn’t imagine it actually warming a mug. The coffee dispensing nozzle is adjustable which is great for different size cups and better than other machines I’ve used that have a fixed dispenser making variation of cup sizes an issue. The milk container has a self-clean function that works on the turn of a switch so very user friendly and is useful as it would be hard to clean otherwise and be confident all the milk wasn’t spoiling the internal mechanics. The changeable nozzle allows for hot water, which you simply pull off and replace, interchangeable with the milk attachment.
The machine takes about 1 minute to heat up which isn’t too long at all and aside from the grinding of the beans the machine is quite silent which is good for early morning starts as to not wake anyone else in the house up. It can do 1 or 2 cups at the same time and you can change the strength of the coffee and volume of water using the settings, although all the preset measures of water are far too little for what I like in a coffee. The machine self-cleans at the start every time you turn it on which is good but do need to capture the water in a cup or the drip tray will fill up very quickly. It also performs the clean when the machine is switched off. Different types of coffee are available, from Latte to strong, long black coffee giving an option for everyone and the ability to set auto on and off is handy for mornings so the machine is ready as and when you want it, but the machine really doesn’t take long to heat up so maybe a bit of an unnecessary feature.
The machine can take whole bean or ground beans for variation and smells great in the house when using the whole beans. The hot water nozzle is a great feature for tea or adding coffee to your drink but frustrating as it splashes when it comes out and goes on the surfaces but not long enough to put within the mug to try and stop this from happening. Trying to adjust the ‘length’ of the coffee for me didn’t work even though I followed the instructions exactly which was really frustrating as it uses your coffee each time without result. Another slight frustration is that every button pressed starts a coffee which is annoying when you’re trying to learn the machine, but appreciate once I am fully confident with it that may be a positive. I was attempting to make a coffee on one occasion and when the water needed refilling it didn’t register and notify me, so I was pressing to make coffee and it was using coffee but with not result and still not notification of the issue. I could see the dry coffee in the bin area in piles which confirmed what was happening and so added more water, however on another occasion I did get a notification to say the water needed refilling.
I tried making cappuccinos with the milk attachment but even on the highest level of froth on the milk setting the result was rather disappointing and nothing like the picture suggested. This was the functionality I was most excited about and the fact the machine titles itself as a ‘cappuccino machine’ let me down quite a lot. The coffee dispense area where the used coffee is stored is neat and tidy and keeps the machine looking smart within the centre of the machine without being on show and very easy to remove and clean. Overall I think the machine is good and the fresh bean coffee produced is very enjoyable, but was disappointed with the milk featured coffees and the complexity of the functions. I’m not sure if the complication of the machine and amount of features would put me off choosing a machine like this again, with the milk options of the machine not living up to expectations.
