Very common design
I bought this De Longhi Magnifica 3200 because my old Krups espresso machine did not produce proper creme. Add to this, that I do not have a proper machine for grinding, some I had to find something.
Lacking alternatives in my local area I had to buy this online and I was quite anxious to see what I got when I finally decided what to do.
But no need to worry. The machine was easy to put up, there was a nice description step by step in how to start and make both espresso and cappuccino. The first cup of coffee was perfect and so it stayed.
It's very easy to clean the machine and the grinding function is good. Don't use it for already grounded coffee. you can only pour one spoon of coffee. And you lack the ability to adjust the "power" of the coffee by other means than by putting more or less coffee on the spoon. Use whole beans in this machine.
The steamer makes job good and nice job when I go Latte or Cappuccino. It's both easy and quick to change between coffee-mode and steam-mode.
And: Now my wife can make coffee too :-)
