Why Choose A Fully Automatic De’Longhi Coffee Machine?
If you are ready to spice up your morning ritual with an espresso machine, it is important to figure out which one is right for you. Although there are many benefits to choosing a semi-automatic coffee machine such as a pump driven espresso machine, automatic espresso makers are preferred by many coffee lovers due to the remarkably streamlined brewing process. Rather than purchasing grinding accessories or figuring out how to tamp coffee beans to perfection, a fully automatic bean-to-cup machine will handle every step without limiting flavour or aroma.
With numerous features that allow you to prepare your coffee to your precise tastes, a De’Longhi fully automatic espresso machine is perfect for those who seek out total convenience. Alongside a host of personalisable features and modern additions, including the ability to remotely control your brew, enjoying a sumptuous coffee with minimal hassle is made easy. With tastefully designed De’Longhi espresso makers slotting effortlessly into any home kitchen, you can sip wonderful coffee with the least amount of fuss.
1. Magnifica Automatic Coffee Machines
Purchasing an entry-level automatic coffee machine does not mean you have to compromise on taste and aroma. The De’Longhi Magnifica automatic espresso machines provide a stellar way to enter the world of premium coffee on a budget.
Tantalising espresso is made incredibly accessible with the De’Longhi Magnifica S automatic coffee machine. Featuring a simplified design with convenient one-touch recipe buttons, it does not take much know-how to produce a delightful espresso-based drink in rapid time. With a high-quality twin brewing cycle brewing two tasty espresso shots in a single pour, you can input your preferred temperature, strength and length to ensure your drink is exactly how you like it.
This sense of usability extends to the Fixed Cappuccino System, which injects the ideal amount of steam and air into your milk to create perfectly aerated and delicious foam. Meanwhile, the Magnifica S comes complete with highly accurate, adjustable conical steel grinders that will grind your coffee to your preferred degree of coarseness.
Alongside useful features such as automatic shut-off, a removable drip tray and a height-adjustable coffee dispenser to suit tall glasses, many components can be rinsed in the sink or placed in the dishwasher, ensuring cleaning is suitably straightforward.
Magnifica S Smart
If you are impressed by the features of the Magnifica S, but looking for a slightly higher level of polish, the Magnifica S Smart espresso machine might be the perfect answer. Here, you’ll find the Fixed Cappuccino System replaced by the Advanced Cappuccino System, ensuring users can quickly swap between making foam and hot milk to create a range of traditional beverages like cafe lattes and cappuccinos.
There is also the addition of four one-touch coffee recipe buttons – Espresso, 2x Espresso, Coffee and Long – ensuring you can brew a great-tasting drink at a moment’s notice. With easy-to-use dials to set the aroma and coarseness of your grind, the automatic Magnifica S Smart makes undoubtedly delicious coffee.
2. Dinamica Automatic Coffee Machines
De’Longhi’s range of Dinamica automatic espresso coffee machines evolves the Magnifica range with enhanced interactivity and functionality to deliver a seamless coffee-making experience.
When it comes to making barista-quality espresso at home, the De'Longhi Dinamica Black coffee machine combines some of the latest technology with an undeniable sense of usability. Featuring a compact form factor to ensure a comfortable fit on even the most cramped benchtop, the refined soft-touch controls with subtle backlights mean you can swiftly select the perfect coffee for your mood, including Espresso, Espresso Lungo, Coffee and Long. Plus, you can simply navigate the intuitive menu to personalise your brew’s aroma and temperature.
The Dinamica Black also makes the most of Active Temperature Control technology, which uses a water heating circuit and a thermoblock to reach the perfect temperature required for coffee extraction and milk texturing. You will be able to wield the superior Fixed Cappuccino System to create smooth and velvety milk foam for your favourite espresso-based drink. This flexible system is also great for producing hot water for times when you prefer tea or an infusion.
In terms of cleaning, this automatic coffee machine offers the same level of convenience as the rest of the range. With a dishwasher-safe drip tray and a removable brewing unit, you can place these into your dishwasher or give them a quick rinse before brewing another fresh cup of coffee.
Moving up the ranks, the De’Longhi Dinamica Silver automatic espresso machine offers a series of extra features that will make your coffee-making experience even more stress-free. In part, this is due to the inclusion of the LatteCrema system, which sees your espresso machine handle the entire milk frothing process from beginning to end. With just the touch of a button, you can ensure your cappuccino or macchiato is finished with the perfect amount of foam. Plus, this in-depth system works with the full range of alternative milk, including soy and almond milk, and offers a self-cleaning function that saves you time and effort.

Supported by the inclusion of the same LatteCrema System and ‘My’ functions featured in the De’Longhi Dinamica Silver, this fully automatic espresso machine also enables three separate user profiles. With this functional system giving different members of your house the ability to customise their favourite drinks, there are also luxurious new recipes such as Cappuccino+ and Doppio+ for even greater options.
The De’Longhi Dinamica Plus also adds the Pot Coffee function. As a feature that is particularly useful for people who love to sip on drip coffee throughout the day, the De’Longhi Glass Coffee Pot accessory is what makes this so special.
