Product Description

The DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM3300 might be small, but it's packed with plenty of power and productivity-enhancing functions to deliver cup after cup of delicious roast. Magnifica ESAM3300's digital control panel with programmable settings, built-in burr grinder and one-touch foam system help save you time, while its 7 1/2 cup (60 ounce) water reservoir means you'll need to refill less often. Did we mention Magnifica's self-cleaning powers? 'Tis true, this sublime Super-Automatic includes a decalcification indicator and an easy-to-clean, removable coffee bin and drip tray.

Features & Functionality of the DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM3300

  • Compact and High Performance: Because the Magnifica's new exclusive brew group is so compact, the excellent heat distribution guarantees a perfect espresso at the ideal temperature every time.
  • Double Boiler: Thanks to the stainless steel double boiler, the inside is easy to maintain and keep clean. We recommend descaling the boilers every two to three months to ensure all mineral deposits are removed. Descaling is very easy to do and is outlined in a few simple steps in the manual that is includes with the machine.
  • Instant Reheat: This special function heats the core of the Magnifica, ensuring the machine is always at the ideal temperature for espresso, no matter how long the interval between cups.
  • Removable Water Tank and Bean Container: DeLonghi knows that the counter space in your kitchen is always at a premium. The Magnifica is the only Super-Automatic machine that allows you to fill the water tank and empty the coffee grounds without moving the machine. All of the controls are at the front of the machine, from the on/off switch to the cappuccino system.
  • Integrated Burr Grinder: A space saver container for coffee beans is fully integrated into the Magnifica. You can set the grinding level to customize your espresso. The Magnifica 3300 can also be used with ground coffee.
  • Cappuccino System: The patented cappuccino system rotates 180 degrees to allow for any size milk container.
  • Front Panel: Magnifica allows you to customize your coffee by adjusting the quantity of water and amount of ground coffee to suit your taste: long or short, weak or strong.
Pros
  • Reliable - The 3300 is one of the least-returned machines that we sell. Our customers report low instances of breakdown.
  • Dialed Controls - The manual dials on this machine are less likely to fail versus the dials on its digital or touch counterparts.
  • Bypass Doser - It's one of the only superautomatics under $1000 with a bypass doser.
Cons
  • Noisy Grinder - DeLonghi's superautomatics are known for being a touch louder than others.
  • Oil-Free Beans - Like most superautomatics, the grinder is not oily-bean friendly. Try a medium espresso roast for optimal results.

What is the temperature of coffee this machine makes?
A shopper on Jul 4, 2012
Best Answer: I have never actually measured the temperature of coffee made. However, I can offer this: when I make an espresso, the temperature is about the same as what I get when I order espresso at a starbucks or restaurant high end espresso maker.

When I make a full cup of coffee (using the double button with more water), I often heat the coffee in a microwave for 20 seconds.

Overall, we have been very pleased with this maker. We make 3-5 cups of coffee every day since we bought this machine.

About how often does this machine need to be descaled? This is our first espresso machine, and we love it, but we've had it for about 3 months and have had to descale twice already. Is that normal?
Sara H on Dec 3, 2014
Best Answer: I've been a little puzzled about that red light is telling me too, but there are a lot of variables including how frequently you use the machine (I typically use it once a day in the morning). I think it was about three months I first had to descale, but since then the red light has come on more quickly, maybe about every five weeks, so I wondering whether it's telling me there are grounds or dirt elsewhere inside the machine that need to be cleaned. Last time my descaling was "interrupted"--I couldn't stick around the house long enough for the whole process to run its course at one time--so the darn light never went off, but I've still decided to wait about two months before doing the operation again. Even when I've ignored the light for a while, it doesn't seem to affect the quality of coffee I'm getting. Wish I could give a clearer answer, but good luck!

Does this machine brew espresso as well as a regular cup of coffee?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2012
Best Answer: Yes, I use it for a regular cup of coffee and my wife uses it for espresso, just a quick dial change. Though the true definition for the regular coffee may be coffee "Americano," (espresso diluted.) But I think it tastes much better than our old coffee maker.

Is it loud when foaming milk?
A shopper on Nov 9, 2014
Best Answer: Nope, it's not loud when it's foaming milk when you use it as configured (there are two cleanable pieces to the steaming wand--take care not to lose them)

I bought this unit for home use because I fell in love with the model 3500 I use at work. Someone long before I came on board lost the outer steaming cuff that goes over the steam nozzle. Still will steam coffee fine in this configuration, but it can be so loud that you can't carry a conversation.

It is loud when it grinds the coffee. It's generally the sound that rouses me from sleep and calls to me to start the day. Not a bad sound but loud.

What are the best settings or most recommended settings in this machine for Expresso and Americano?
A shopper on Apr 11, 2014
Best Answer: I love this machine so much at work, I bought one and took it for home use. It is a work-horse. I backed into just how to characterize how much work it's done for our small office. It's been inservice for 7 years. No Issues. It makes between 10-20 cups of espresso/capp per day. Figure 200+ working days per year. This means this this soldier has faithfully produced something on the order of 14,000 to 28,000 cups of coffee without even a hick-up. Now that's what you call a Marine: "Thank-you sir, may I have another" Hoo-ha.

As far as americano goes, and what setting to choose, I only have preference for espresso. I dialed the quantity for duo espresso cup to 3.5 dots of water, and for strength of coffee, it's full twist to the right to 10-dots (no actually about "11" ) for maximum amount. This is purely preference. It gives the largest filter cake. I do recommend you start with a larger filter cake and then scale back to where you like it. You can always add water, but you can't take it out.

Will this machine do a double shot (i.e. grind and brew twice)?
A shopper on Dec 15, 2012
Best Answer: Not that I am aware - to get a double shot you hit the button under the two cup symbol. If you want more than a double you have to hit the button again (either one or two cup symbol, depending on amount desired.) You can repeat as many times as desired, assuming adequate water and bean supply.

With the bypass doser, is it ok to use flavored beans? I have always heard that beans that may have oil cause issues with the grinder. I was wondering if you bypass the grinder if any bean would be ok.
A shopper on Apr 17, 2015
Best Answer: Technically, it is safer to use oily or flavored coffee in the bypass doser than in the grinder, but we do not recommend using oily or flavored beans at all in a superautomatic machine. This would be at your own discretion.

Can you adjust the heat settings on this machine?
A shopper on Feb 17, 2015
Best Answer: No, this machine provides a consistent temperature, but does not have settings that can be adjusted. It will brew espresso at the ideal temperature, but you will find that the final temperature is lower once it makes it's way through the spouts. This is common on all superautomatics, since there are plastic components that the coffee will flow through, losing some temperature along the way.

I noticed that this machine isn't recommended for use with oily beans. Can the grinder be cleaned? If so, how often should it be cleaned if I use oily beans?
Wyatt H on Feb 1, 2015
Best Answer: Unfortunately, as with any superautomatic, you really shouldn't use any oily beans or a dark roast with this machine. This is because the oils will cause buildup and clogging in the grinder, and this can harm your machine, or cause a repair where it can be professionally cleaned. Because the grinder is built into the machine, you cannot clean out the grinder on your own, so if you do have a clog, it would have to be professionally serviced, and this is not covered by warranty. This is why we are so insistent that any superautomatic, whether it's this machine or another, you really should just use a medium roast and a non-oily bean, so that you don't harm the machine or cause clogging that you can't clear out. Hope this helps!

Drain water for transport and storage?
Matthew H on Jan 24, 2015
Best Answer: In order to do that, you will just want to be sure that you've asked the machine to pump out as much water as you can. To do that, try to pull water out of the steam wand until you get sputtering. If you're able to, you can also prop up the water tank magnet in the water tank (sometimes a toothpick or piece of sponge can do the trick), so the machine thinks that it still has water, then repeat, and once you get sputtering, turn off the machine right away. That way, you don't burn out the boiler by it trying to heat just air.

When you take the machine out of storage or get it to where it needs to go, just be sure to reprime the machine as soon as you turn it on by getting a stream of water through the steam wand so that it can then heat properly for you!

Ok so please clarify. If I want to make an espresso and m wife wants an espresso decaf, I would use whole beans in the hopper and she would simply use ground beans in the by pass doses? Avoiding having to change the beans?
Eaglespirit on Nov 23, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, that would work great! Just make sure that the ground coffee that you put down the bypass doser is an espresso grind, and you will generally need a single scoop, leveled off. Adding too much coffee can cause the machine to reject the coffee and empty it into your dump box. That will certainly help you because if you did change out the beans, we recommend brewing at least a couple cycles to clear out the mixture of the old and new beans/grounds.

Does this machine make the milk for a latte or is it more foamy conducive for a cappuccino?
Myla T on Oct 15, 2014
Best Answer: The DeLonghi Magnifica 3300 has a panarello, meaning that you can froth the milk to the level of temperature and foam that you desire. Though the foam has slightly larger bubbles than a traditional wand, you can certainly froth milk for either a latte or a cappuccino.

We have had ours for several years, and it just recently stopped pumping water,is this failure typical for a unit that is used on a daily basis?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2014
Best Answer: Unfortunately the downside to any super automatic machine like this DeLonghi Magnifica 3300 is that they could have the potential for various issues because there is so much going on inside the machine. We would be happy to take a look at your machine to determine what is going on with it in our service center, however typical life expectancy for super autos is between 5-8 years.

We are finally getting close to purchasing a good expresso machine. Had toys in the past and want a good expresso at this point. Looking seriously at the ESAM3300 and wonder if somehow we can adapt a conventional steam wand so as to make froth for 'artwork'?
T S on Apr 28, 2014
Best Answer: No, unfortunately there is not an adaptation that I am aware of to modify this Magnifica to a traditional steam wand. The only super automatic machines we offer that have traditional steam wands are the Saeco Exprelia and Xelsis machines. Otherwise for the best latte art possible, then you might want to check out some semi automatics like the Breville Barista Express. I have included a few links to these different machines below so that you can take a look:

My brother has a machine that the grinds do not have to be dumped each time. It presses them into a disk looking pod until it is full. Does this do that?
A shopper on Feb 27, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, this DeLonghi Magnifica 3300 has a built in grinder that will grind and brew each cup with a dosage of coffee that is pressed into a puck. The puck is then dumped into a small holding container inside the unit that will hold about 5 or so pucks before the machine requires emptying. Hope this clarifies!

May I use grounded coffee in semi-automatic coffee machines if I like to make espresso with different flavor of coffee once an while, or should better buy a Breville Express 870? Thanks
Espressodouble on Feb 5, 2014
Best Answer: A flavored coffee is generally sprayed with flavoring, and so it has a coated exterior that can really clog up both the grinder and the internals of an infuser (brewing unit) like this DeLonghi 3300. If you tend to use flavored coffees, then yes, I would recommend a machine like the Breville Barista Express 870, as maintenance will be much easier.

How easy is it to change the beans in this machine? My wife prefers to drink decaf coffee, so I'd want to swap the beans.
Pete D on Sep 14, 2013
Best Answer: It is not ideal to change beans on a machine like this DeLonghi 3300 between shots, as there will be beans in the grinder hopper as well as the grinder itself and the grinder chute leading to the brew unit. This means that it usually takes brewing about 3 cups before all of the older beans will be out of the grinder and chute. Most folks who have a decaf user in the house use one kind of whole beans in the hopper and the second type of beans as preground espresso in the bipass doser. This machine does have a bipass doser for this purpose.

Lately, my front access door keeps popping open when the machine is cycling up or down. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

I ordered the Magnifica after a lot of research. This is our first superautomatic. The video review by the Seattle Coffee Gear staff clinched the deal. This thing gets A LOT of use at our house. Several cycles every morning. Double duty on weekends. We take the unit with us on road trips. Four months of flawless performance so far. As an engineer, I admire the simple, practical design. It won't win any beauty contests, but I'd rather have a plain - but working - coffee machine than a pretty paperweight. Highly recommended. (Posted on 7/12/2015)
Great machine, grounds in chamber (infuser replacement)Review by Jon
Quality

I thought I would add a review because I tried to google my problem and found no answer.

I will start and say that I love this machine. Been making quality coffee for a year and a half. The only on-going issue has been that the coffee does not come out very hot, but for the price and convenience , that is a minor issue.

However, recently I have noticed more and more grounds being left behind in the chamber. The pucks clearly were not getting tamped down as compactly as they had once been. I called Delonghi and they quickly came to the conclusion that my infuser needed replacement. Since it was under warranty, they said they would send it for free.

I will report back about the success of this solution. (Posted on 5/12/2015)

Received my Magnifico in two days- It came out of the package and was easy to prime and use. The coffee is fantastic out of it and the steam wand works wonderfully. My only complaint is that it is a little louder than what I'm used to- but that is a problem I can handle as long as I get great coffee out of it!!! The price couldnt be beat, I checked everywhere that sold this model and it was nearly 300 cheaper through Seattle Coffee gear.

Have had the Magnifica for about a year now. It replaced a Jura Capresa which we had for about 8 years. The MAgnifica is a much better machine, easier to use and easier to clean. Most important, the coffee is better. The crema is great once you pick the right grind and the cappucino frother works quite well as long as it is cleaned regularly. We drink about 6 cups aday and use oily beans. We have to decalcify about every 4-6 weeks. We have beed very satisfied so far and would recommend this machine compared to more expensive models.

The machine was handed down to me by may Daughter. It started its life about nine years ago in a motor home, California to Mexico to Belize and back for 5 years. I got it broken from a fall off the counter-top while driving on a switch back mountain road.

I got it working while living in the Sierra Nevada's. Rebuilt the control panel mother board with switches from Radio Shack. It has had a few minor repairs since then and is still making great coffee after all these years and miles. Obviously when needed, I will replace it with another Delonghi Magnifica.

I sent in my Saeco Incanto Deluxe for repair and SCG called and said it would cost me as much to repair as a new machine. I started looking at another Saeco and talked to SCG about the differences of the Saeco models and they suggested I buy the Delonghi Magnifica ESAM3300. They said it was reliable and easy to use, so after doing some more research I called back and ordered it. It came a few days later and it was remarkable. Filled it with water and beans, primed it and the very first cup was perfect. There is little to program on this machine, it has 2 dials on it - 1 for the volume of water, the other for the amount of beans it will grind. After a little adjusting you know exactly what to do. The milk frother also works well. it is great to have a cappuccino or latte whenever we want one. My old Saeco was unreliable and usually we ended up microwaving the milk for the latte. The price SCG has on this is about the best on the internet right now, but if you do find a better price they will price match. Also the people at SCG are the very best to work with. They know what customer service is and every one that I spoke to was extremely helpful and professional. An absolute joy to do business with. (Posted on 10/17/2014)

First of all, Seattle Coffee gear beat EVERYONE in price - including Amazon and that's amazing. In addition the unit came with a free extra year warranty from Seattle Coffee Gear - also a major extra.

We had a Spidem Divina for about 10 years which operated very similarly, however the Spidem company does not have a good reputation for taking care of American customers, so I assume that is why they abandoned the US market. When I sent my Spidem in for another repair and was told it wasn't worth it at this point, the owner of the repair facility recommended this machine - and with Seattle Gear's price we actually paid less for this brand new machine than we did for the Spidem some 10 years ago!

It's easier to clean, set up, adjust and has a better appearance on the counter. Plus the coffee is outstanding - and easy to adjust strength for my inlaws who prefer cafe allonge (weaker 'lengthened' American coffee) - on the old machine we had to add hot water from the cappuccino arm to accomplish that easily.

We love it! (Posted on 7/25/2014)

I've had a Saeco (it lasted and I loved it for 8 years!) and a DeLonghi manual (a plastic internal piece broke and the repair was the cost of a new one), but decided for groups of 4 or more this semi-automatic would be better, and with fresh ground beans. The only hassle is now finding hearty enough beans for a good espresso brew for our daily latte and yet not oily as Starbuck's espresso beans are. We are trying out some Mr. Coffee Bean Columbian, but it would be nice if the oily beans weren't a problem, although they are more bitter, so guess all around this will be a good move. Hope I don't have the issues I'm reading about in some reviews, but I think positive and expect it to last a LONG time...and we are loving the espresso it makes! (Posted on 7/10/2014)

couldn't be any happier with this machine. My sister in Germany got me hooked on one. She has had one for years. Now I have one too.

Our first lasted until a stone in the coffee beans hurt the finger that helps the beans into the burr grinder. Parts not available so we got a temp fix that lasted a couple years. When that broke I bought this new one. Hope it lasts as long and performs as well as the first. (Posted on 6/30/2014)

I've had my Magnifica for over 2 years and still love it. I work from home and no longer drive for coffee shop brews. I also spend 15 minutes cleaning out the inside of the machine a few times a year to remove grounds and dried on coffee.

This machine has more than paid for itself and it makes yummy expresso with nice crema. (Posted on 6/27/2014)
So far it exceeds expectationsReview by Shirazed

Purchased to replace a Saeco super automatic that lasted at least 8 years (when everyone else's seem to last about 2). This machine is quieter than I expected. And is making fantastic coffee / espresso much better than the previous Saeco. I haven't fiddled with the grind yet but so far the pucks are coming out pretty dry and in one piece so I don't really feel a need. I did go ahead and purchase a two year extended warranty since this kind of machine regularly breaks down it seems. And besides, with the price I was able to get it at it didn't add much.
SCG was fantastic with their customer service. The only thing that could have made it better would be having the option to back order the unit when it is out of stock. They did offer to send me an email as soon as it was in stock which was almost immediately. And I'm quite happy with that .I don't know how they can sell this machine for the price they did because it's about $400 less than everybody else! I'm not complaining though. (Posted on 4/30/2014)

I got this in September 2013 as a gift for my boyfriend. It worked great for 2 months. It started to turn itself on and off. We had to ship it to a repair center. After 1 month, it came back. Then it leaked. It seems not fair to us to have to ship it back to the repair center and I am sure it is going to stay there another month. It's not fair not to have the machine I purchased for 2 months and not to have a home made coffe for that long period. We asked for a new machine. It was rejected. I will never purchase this brand again. (Posted on 2/13/2014)

I have had this machine for about 2 years. I gave it 4 stars for quality as I had to send it in once for repair. Delonghi paid for freight both ways so I was pleased with that. The 2 year warranty was also longer than the standard. I gave it 5 stars for price as I got it on close out from Sams Club and there was also a rebate which made my final cost about $500. It is easy to use and clean. The espresso shots have nice crema. I recently switched to a more costly bean but could tell the quality was better than the grocery store brand for sure. You have to guess the size of the shot by the water dial and once you figure it out it is not a big deal. The frothing wand works well and never seems to lose steam pressure. I am not disappointed in this machine after 2 years of use. (Posted on 1/22/2014)
Excellent Super AutomaticReview by Dave G

I've used a DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM3300 for 6 years during which time it has been used to make 4 double cappuccinos every morning and usually a couple of espressos every evening. It is fast and easy to use and produced a product that was as good as the semi automatic I owned before it. It has lasted longer than any espresso machine I've owned but it is beginning to show its age and I'm about to replace it. It has made roughly 8,760 double cappuccinos which would have cost about $37,230 at Starbucks. It was a great investment! (Posted on 1/21/2014)

This is clearly the best tasting coffee/espresso maker out there. And this model has everything we need. The next level up has the auto-frother, but we like to do our own- that way you can get it just right, you can steam milk for hot cocoa, etc. This is a great machine. Would have preferred stainless all over instead of hard plastic, but that is a minor complaint- it still looks very nice. And the coffee is the best (and hot too). Highly recommended.

A Great Machine for the PriceReview by Yvonne

I purchased this machine about 2 years ago. I wore out my previous espresso machine (a semi-automatic that had stress fractures on the coffee grind compactor - I had to apply manual pressure so it wouldn't snap off more pieces of metal while brewing for the last month I used it) and it was no longer being made, so I made the choice to move up to a nicer machine. However, I couldn't justify thousands of dollars for my morning coffee. This machine was reasonably priced and has done the job nicely. I have cleaned it weekly and descaled it when the light comes on (about every 6 months for me). Other than that, it has not needed anything from me but water and beans. I'm very pleased with my purchase. (Posted on 9/5/2013)

Quieter than same model previously ownedReview by Curt

This is my second Magnifica...the first one lasted for several years and two cross-country moves, but finally shorted the heater.

I ordered the exact same model again because I was so happy with the previous one. I have also owned a Jura, which didn't last near as long and always sounded like it was underpowered and straining when making espresso.

From all the reviews I've read and my own experience with the Jura, I believe this Magnifica is one of the most reliable machines available for anywhere near this price. They seem to be prone to needing repair, and it's expensive and a hassle returning such a large and fragile appliance.

The ONLY complaint I had about my previous Magnifica is that it was incredibly loud when grinding the beans. The Jura was much quieter. BUT...they evidently addressed this issue and my new one is much more muffled. (Posted on 7/12/2013)

My boss bought the magnifica for our work place about 3-4 years ago. I'm the coffee-snob in the office, so I take care of the machine. I do the decalicification whenever it calls for it. about every month. The thing is beyond this maintenance, the machine has operated flawlessly for all this time. We go through about 2 pounds of beans per week on this little workhorse, with no problems. Never counted, but Im guessing a dozen shots a day. The Crema is good, not the most amazing I've ever had, and the frother gets the job done. The place I buy my beans at here in Arlington, Barismo, puts recommended dwell times on each type of coffee bean they sell. You can adjust the grind to get the 27-30 seconds needed for a double shot. Length of shot, water volume, is also adjustable.

Some one had mentioned on another review about the seals on the steaming wand and wondering if they wear out--they don't. I was skeptical about all the plastic, but nothing has broken over the years, and I clean the drip tray and coffee grounds knock-out box once a week. I can see it going another 3 years. Love it so much I'm buying one for home.

My first espresso maker so I'm a newbie. However I like gadgets. This is a great machine. Just got back from Italy and this provides similar quality espresso and cappuccino. The only potential limitation I can envision is that the steam wand is three pieces with 2 "o" rings to seal. Would expect rubber "o" rings to deteriorate over time and become a problem. Would have preferred a solid metal on piece wand. Makes a great espresso with nice creama! (Posted on 10/2/2012)

I have to be astounded to give anything 5 stars. Overall makes terrific expresso and lattes after some tweaking of the settings to suit my tastes. Brewing with ground coffee has been disappointing--frequently fails, with the grounds just dropping into the waste tray. So I brew with top quality beans alone and can't believe I have been home brewing with a drip machine forever. Not ready to call myself a barista, but this thing is pretty awesome. Yes, cleans easy. Because its almost all plastic, be happy if I get more than 3-4 years out of it, but still strongly recommend. (Posted on 7/6/2012)

I purchased this machine to replace one that I had bought at another retailer several years ago. Compared to the manual one I had it is much quieter than my previous machine. I read the reviews about it being noisy and that was the general consensus from several customers but to me it seems quieter than what I had previously and the bonus is everything is in one machine which I like alot. It took a few tries to get the grind and other adjustments to where I liked but overall I am extremely happy with my purchase and am not disappointed.

Finally, a reliable super autoReview by Jakester
Quality
Value
Price
Ok, here's my story and we will see if review stands. First, I started my love for Super Autos with the Saeco Italia. Read the reviews. Like an Italian sports car... when it worked it was great. Most of the time however!!! Went through three before I got one that lasted three years. Even on that one, the brew group failed. After a long call to Saeco they sent new brew group for free.

It seems clear the Saecos are incredibly tempermental. See reviews and all have same hassles. What's worse is repairing them usually cost an average $300-$400. Call a service center and ask. I tried a Saeco Odea Giro. Failed in first week. Simply stopped working.

So finally, after reading, researching and frustration, I buy the DeLonghi 3300 from great people at Seattle Coffee Gear.

People, it is like magic! Finally, a logically designed reliable super auto! 2 year warranty and in home repair service from DeLonghi!

Machine has power control up front and you can see water level on the side. Steam wand tucks in out of the way. Controls on front for shot size and intensity are great. Bypass includes a spoon that sits in chamber. It even includes a water test strip for calcium so you can correctly set the descale interval alert based upon your water quality.

THIS IS THE MACHINE TO GET UNDER $1000. AVOID THE FRUSTRATION AND JOIN THE SATISFIED.

Pros:
Great Taste, Not a Saeco, Easy To Clean, Easy To Use

Cons:
