DeLonghi Eletta Bean to Cup Coffee Machine


The DeLonghi Eletta Cappuccino is a well built, solid bean to cup machine from DeLonghi, one of the best when it comes to balancing build quality, features and value for money.

If you're someone who is willing to spend a bit more money on a nicer looking machine which has the look and feel to coincide with the higher price (vs the entry level machines) but who isn't willing to pay over the odds for bells & whistles, this is a great bean to cup machine to look at.

If you're looking for a bean to cup machine, and you're wanting to invest a bit more money in decent build quality, without going over the top and spending sillly money, for me the Eletta range is just in the sweet spot, in terms of not going too far over the line of diminishing returns.

The componentry that is responsible for espresso, is the same in the majority of the DeLonghi range, so as you're going up in value there is a point that you're starting to invest mainly in features.

For me, depending on the current deal price, click the button to the top right to check, this is usually just at the point where it's probably worth spending the extra few quid on, vs a Magnifica machine for example, but not going overboard into the realms of paying hundreds extra simply for features.

Features and Benefits

  • 2L front accessed water tank
  • 0.5L one touch milk carafe
  • 6 one touch coffees
  • 19 grind settings
  • memory function
  • Max cup height: 14cm
  • Grinder bypass chute

The Eletta is a solid bean to cup machine from Delonghi for anyone who's willing to pay a bit more for nicer build quality and more features (compared to the more entry level options from DeLonghi).

Where the internal components are concerned, the important stuff such as the grinder and the brewing unit, you'll find these to be the same right the way through the range.

So if you're focused purely on cup quality, there's really no reason to stray out of the entry level (Magnifica range), however if you're looking for a good balance of value for money, build quality and features, I think the Eletta is one of the best in this regard, where DeLonghi bean to cup coffee machines are concerned.
