This machine is a bit noisy but first of all that is because of built-in grinder. However coffee grinders usually are noisy. As it was mentioned above this machine tells you when you have to refill coffee beans. Grinder grinds coffee beans instantly before brewing espresso. If you would like, you can use already grounded coffee. Then you just have to fill in as much ground coffee as you are going to brew. Brewing system is quite compact and easy removable for cleaning.
Milk frothing system is convenient. Frothed milk run out directly into your cup and then DeLonghi ESAM 3500.N. makes espresso and puts it in the same cup. However there are many complains in reviews about very low temperature of produced steamed and frothed milk. That is about 120 degrees F. In case if you like very hot cappuccino or late this doesn’t satisfy you.
There is an additional important thing you have to take to account before buying DeLonghi ESAM3500.N. The coffee bean lid opens upward. In such a way total height of the espresso machine is about 18 inches. Its matter if you have small kitchen or limited place to put your appliance.
As more complicated espresso machine is as larger is probability it could break. The good news is that DeLonghi has more repair shops for warranty service than any other manufacturer. This is expensive espresso machine but well worth the price.
Cleaning of DeLonghi ESAM3500.N. Magnifica is not very complicated. Automatic decalcification indicator lights let you know when it’s time to clean the machine. Still I really recommend you following manual suggestions of cleaning order at least the first several times.
Super automatic espresso machines have sophisticated mechanisms to allow you enjoy heavenly espressos every time almost without any effort but they require much responsible attitude in everyday exploitation.
