Coffee machines of this brand are particularly popular, combining a wide range of features, high quality and affordable price. Also Italian brand coffee machines stand out with a large model range. The company produces devices in all categories, from budget versions for home to premium class.
DeLonghi ECAM 22.110.B
The coffee machine belongs to the Intensa series. Like most of the brand, it is controlled electronically and has a maximum pressure of 15 bar. It can use both beans and ground coffee. Tanks are big enough: 250 grams for beans, 1.8 liter for water. Built-in grinder supports 13 grinding levels, which allows you to make coffee to any taste. The grinder is made of stainless steel.
The device prepares the following beverages:
Equipped with a manual cappuccinator, there is no milk container. The device has a self-cleaning function, filtration system and indicators for each process.

DeLonghi ETAM 29.510.B
The model from the Autentica series is almost no different from the previous coffee machine, except for the following features:
- the range of drinks is expanded with the ability to make latte macchiato;
- it has a personalization function for creating your own recipes.
The main disadvantages (unlike the rest of the Autentica series) are the reduced bean hopper: 150 grams for beans and 1.3 liter for water.
The plus side of this coffee machine is the extended coffee tank (300 grams). It is equipped with a “standard” water tank of 1.8 liters and a manual cappuccinator.
In terms of functionality it does not differ from its predecessors except for the lack of personalization and reduced range of drinks (ECAM350.15.B can not make latte and latte macchiato).
DeLonghi ECAM 22.360.S
The Magnifica Series model. It differs from previous versions by having an automatic cappuccinator which makes preparing drinks with milk foam much easier. It also has a removable milk tank.
Other features are identical to previous units: 250g bean hopper, 1.8L water tank, grinder with 13 grind levels, self-cleaning function, etc.
The beverage range includes 6 types of coffee (identical to ETAM 29.510.B).

The coffee machine is almost the same as the previous model, except for the expanded bean container (300 grams) and minor changes in the design of the body. It has a built-in cappuccinator, removable milk tank and makes all 6 basic beverage types (without personalization).
The essential difference is the country of production. While all of the above mentioned machines are made in Romania, this one is an Italian.
DeLonghi ETAM 29.660.SB
A more advanced representative of the Autentica series, which features smaller tanks. The machine has a 200 g tank for grains, water tank – 1.4 liters.
Almost all functions of this version are identical to the cheaper ETAM 29.510.B, but with the main difference in the form of an automatic cappuccinator. Like the other members of the Autentica series, it has a personalization function to create your own recipes.
The mid-priced Dinamica line. It has an extra large coffee tank for 300 grams although the grinder has only 7 grind levels.
The important difference from other coffee machines of the brand is the ability to cook “Flat White“.
It is a representative of the premium series PrimaDonna Class. It has a wider range of options and improved basic functions. First of all, we should highlight the maximum pressure, which is 19 bars. This can reduce the maximum brewing speed as well as improve the taste of the drink (although pumps almost never work at the limit values).
An important difference is also the advanced electronics. The machine includes:
- Bluetooth module.
- Ability to use your smartphone as a remote control.
- Supports iOS and Android.
- Color display.
Has the widest range of prepared drinks (including “Flat White”) and the function of personalization. Also features some of the largest tanks: 2 liters for water and 380 grams for beans or ground coffee. The ECAM550.55.SB is inferior to other models in the number of grinds and has only 7 grinds. But considering the extended range of beverages and programming of recipes, this feature cannot be considered a disadvantage. The body is made of metal and plastic parts.

A more advanced representative of the PrimaDonna Class series. Unlike the previous version, the coffee machine has 13 degrees of grinding, but the tank for beans is much smaller – 250 grams. The water tank is 2 liters, just like the other representatives of the series.
The main advantage and an important difference is the material of the coffee machine, which is made of metal. This greatly increases the longevity and durability of the device. The electronics is the same as in the ECAM550.55.SB (support for mobile OS, Bluetooth-module, etc.), but with a graphic display instead of a digital one. There is an illumination of the cups.
It has only two disadvantages: the plastic drip tray (even the cheaper coffee machines of this brand have metal drip trays) and the variety of beverages. It can cook:
- Latte Macchiato.
The most luxurious coffee machine in the PrimaDonna Elite line. Includes all the functions of previous models, but with some differences. The main features include:
- all-metal body;
- large tanks (2 liters of water and 400 grams of coffee);
- touch screen and control via smartphone;
- personalization function;
- the ability to cook hot chocolate
