Perhaps one of the most well known super automatic espresso machines is the ESAM3300 model from DeLonghi. DeLonghi has a good reputation (that goes a long way back) for building high end espresso machines with all the bells and whistles a person could ever want.
The ESAM3300 is no exception to the rule. It can do pretty much everything except ordering your sock drawer. But one thing is for sure… no more hassles with separate coffee grinders once you are the proud owner of an ESAM 3300 Super Automatic. This baby has an integrated coffee grinder that will relieve you of this headache once and for all.
The beans to brew system does exactly what you would expect it to. You simply fill the ESAM3300 with beans and you’ll be enjoying a steaming hot, creamy cup of espresso made from the freshly ground beans that you just put in.
The DeLonghi ESAM3300 also comes with an electronic thermostat for both steam and coffee. So as you would expect from a high end espresso machine such as this, you get plenty of control over the temperatures it uses while making you your perfect brew.
Have you ever experienced that nuisance where certain cups would not fit in your espresso machine’s drip tray? The ESAM3300 Magnifica has height adjustable spigots, so you can kiss this particular headache goodbye as well.
The heated cup tray does a really good job at warming your cups to prepare them for the deliciously creamy shot of espresso that is about to be produced.
After all, what good is it to have a high end espresso machine if its espresso shots are going to be wasted on cold cups? Once you are the owner of an ESAM3300 Super Automatic, do yourself a favor and use that cup warmer to its full extent!
For ease of use, both the water tank as well as the bean container are removable. This allows for easy filling, so you will have total control over the amount of water and the amount of beans used for your brew.
The fact that the water tank and the bean container are removable, also makes them a lot easier to clean. This is also not unimportant, I’m sure you’ll agree!
All in all, the DeLonghi ESAM3300 Magnifica Super Automatic espresso machine is a great machine that produces excellent espresso with a rich layer of cream. You get to finetune the strength of your espresso shots as much as you want. Experiment a bit to find the best setting that you personally like the most.
This espresso maker is also very easy to clean and maintain. I highly suggest that you do so, because if you do not maintain the ESAM3300 regularly and properly, it tends to get a little noisy. On the upside… it warms up fast, so at least the noise will be over soon!
