While Delonghi has a strong reputation for creating fantastic appliances, of all the Delonghi kitchen appliances the favorite amongst most are their wide range of coffee and espresso makers. The brand is known for their innovation and their commitment to quality, both of which these 3 appliances certainly support. The first on our list:
Delonghi Pixie Nespresso Coffee Machine
While some espresso machines can take close to half an hour to heat up and make that perfect cup of espresso, the Pixie works fast, only taking 20 seconds to heat up and another 10 seconds to produce a rich cup of espresso. The nice and thick cream is also sure not to disappoint, thanks to the unit being pump driven.
There are a couple of drawbacks, with the first being that it doesn’t come with a milk frother and the second that it can be noisier than other units. But given how well it performs, how compact it is and how easy to clean the unit is, these points more than outweighs these drawbacks.
This machine is a fantastic “all purpose” coffee machine, featuring four coffee settings that allow you to brew black coffees, espressos, latte macchiatos and cappuccinos all with the touch of a button. It only takes 40 seconds to heat up and features the same unique extraction system as the other Delonghi appliances, giving coffee lovers the full aroma and rich taste that they want and deserve from their coffees. Some other benefits include:
• An adjustable drip tray
• It’s more compact and more stylish than previous models
• It’s quieter than most models on the market
• Can be used with a wide range of coffee pods
Delonghi Citz & Milk
Much like the Pixie above, this Delonghi appliance is far quicker to heat up and produce a great cup of espresso than other machines on the market. In just a couple of minutes the unit heats up, and 30 seconds later you have a great cup of coffee – a fantastic feature, especially if you’re in a huge rush to get out the door in the morning.
This unit also features a 19 bar high pressure pump like the Pixie, which means that coffee lovers are continually treated to a nice, thick crema every time. The integrated aeroccino that comes with this unit is perfect for creating cappuccinos and lattes. In 45 seconds or less, milk is heated and ready to be used with your coffee (though the frother can be used for cold milk as well). It’s quiet, easy to clean, and is an incredibly sturdy unit.
